Zack Snyder’s Justice League leads the line-up of movies in May, which also includes Best Picture Oscar-winner Nomadland and a new animated adventure from Disney, Raya and the Last Dragon. And in TV, Supernatural comes to an end in the 15th and final season, and more classic Doctor Who gets the Blu-ray treatment in a deluxe limited edition box set. All this and much more – read on and pre-order your copies today.     

ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE
DC’s Justice League returns in an all-new version that restores the original vision of director Zack Snyder. More satisfying than the cursory theatrical version completed by Joss Whedon, this four-hour superhero epic is divided into six parts and an epilogue. The plot remains basically the same – the League must resurrect Superman to help them defeat the villainous Steppenwolf – but the longer running time allows it more breathing room, and there’s now much more character development and interaction.
