Captain America: Civil War will have a huge impact on the Marvel universe for many reasons, but this week we'll get to see how the film impacts Marvel TV. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is about to have a registration storyline in response to the film, and considering that the aftermath of Captain America: Winter Soldier famously changed the entire show for the better, we won't want to miss this. 

Civil War also heralds a brief respite from huge blockbusters this week, as a few exciting indies get a chance to shine while the other tentpoles shy away from the competition. But that won't last too long, as X-Men: Apocalypse comes out in a couple of weeks, and while it definitely wasn't as great as Civil War, it's still wholly worth watching

The Lobster

In a dystopian future, single people are taken to The Hotel, where they are required to find a mate in 45 days or turn into the animal of their choice. With that premise, it will either be terrible or amazing, and according to the early reviews, it's the latter. (And the presence of Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz doesn't hurt either.)


This adaptation of J.G. Ballard's novel is getting mixed reviews, but as per usual, most will agree that it's worth seeing just for Tom Hiddleston's powerful performance.
