Two by Two, meanwhile, is an animated tale from Europe as a family of creatures desperately try to make their way onto Noah's Ark, dealing with themes of religion, environmentalism and family. Lastly, we celebrate two of cinema's most lasting icons in the biopic Stan & Ollie, which visualises the twilight years of the great comedic duo Laurel & Hardy.
