Yes, more of those dangling bits. What a week folks, what a long, gruelling, mixed-up old week. And here are some bits on – Disney sequels, JLo, Superman and Viggo Mortensen’s newie – to round it off. Ok, I’m hitting the bar..

It’s about a female mob boss (Queen Latifah) who gets married to please her dying sister.
