5 for Friday (June 5): Trailers, new releases and box office

This week's five most intriguing new cinema offerings...

1. Electric Boogaloo: The Wild Untold Story Of Cannon Films
Aussie documentary about the rise and fall of the titular studio that gave us such cultural high points as Bo Derek's Bolero, Sylvester Stallone's Over the Top, and Dolph Lundgren as He-Man in Masters of the Universe.

2. Listen Up Philip

Another of those acerbic and witty comedies the US indie scene seems to produce at will. This one stars Jason Schwartzman, Elizabeth Moss and Jonathan Pryce.

3. Queen and Country
Veteran director John Boorman's long-awaited sequel to WWII drama Hope & Glory.

4. Second Coming
Idris Elba and Nadine Marshall star in an intriguing "immaculate conception" drama.
