Post-Oscar releases are always a bit on the light-hearted side since the "important" films are strategically held until the opportune months, and it doesn't get lighter than this 3D, slo-mo extravaganza. A sequel that takes place before, during and after the events of 2007's 300, 300: Rise of an Empire doesn't veer far from formula apart from placing the battles at sea and the inclusion of a female leader.

Brad Pitt is an Academy Award winner, Jared Leto really loves his mum, and Bradley Cooper and Meryl Streep co-star in what is officially the most popular selfie in the world. These are the takeaway headlines from this year's Oscars, a night of few surprises and several crowd-pleasing victories presided over by a smiling, composed Ellen DeGeneres.

I was lucky enough this morning to join a group of journalists – dubbed by director Gareth Edwards as "the most important people in the world… just don't tell the others they're less important" – to see 20 minutes of footage from his new Godzilla movie. The footage we saw was raw, with temporary music and in some cases unfinished special effects, but we can say without doubt that Godzilla is going to be the blockbuster to beat this summer – and I say that with authority, being one of the first people on the planet to see the original atomic lizard back in action.

It's been mentioned by more than a few people that Liam Neeson's career has gone the opposite way of Matthew McConaughey's, in that he was once a serious, Oscar-nominated thesp who's now happy starring in brainless movies that pay the bills but don't win him any accolades. And why not? Perhaps after paying his dues the 61-year old wants to have a little fun with B-movies that really belong on ITV2 in the middle of the night instead of every cinema in the world? So, after training Batman, showing off his particular set of skills, chomping a cigar, punching wolves, and rocking an amazing beard in Clash Of The Titans and its sequel, we have Non-Stop aka Texts On A Plane.

A no-holds-barred 4-hour bonkfest from 'persona non grata' Lars von Trier publicises itself, but the director owes Shia LaBeouf a few drinks for keeping Nymphomaniac firmly in the papers with his non-stop publicity parade. Public opinion about the now-unknown Transformers star aside, is anyone interested in watching one woman's sexual history unfold over two parts? In very close detail? And if so, is it any good?

Arriving in the UK after suffering the embarrassment of a US critical drubbing, alongside a thorough awards snubbing, The Monuments Men is the fifth film from director, silver fox and all round megastar George Clooney. It stars the man himself alongside no lesser mortals than Matt Damon, Bill Murray and Cate Blanchett, is inspired by an extraordinary true story and seems to offer an interesting, cultural twist on the war film. So is it as disappointing as the US reaction suggests and, if so, what on earth went wrong?
