5 for Friday (July 17): Trailers, new releases and box office

Everyone will be off to see Ant-Man this weekend (including me) but here are five more new cinema releases worth your time and money (it's a good week for documentaries)...

1. 13 Minutes 
Drama set in 1939 about Georg Elser, a humble German carpenter who plotted to blow-up Adolf Hitler during a speech the Nazi leader gave in Munich. From Oliver Hirschbiegel, who also directed Downfall and, um, Diana.

2. The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnson
Julien Temple (The Filth and the Fury) documentary chronicling what the titular musician thought would be the final months of his life after being diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. An extraordinary, life-affirming story.

3. True Story
Complex thriller based on a true story. Jonah Hill is disgraced New York Times reporter Michael Finkel, James Franco is Christian Longo, the accused killer who stole his identity.

4. Salt Of The Earth 
Wim Wenders co-directs this Oscar-nominated documentary about the life and career of SebastiĆ£o Salgado, the Brazilian photographer who has spent the last 40 years chronicling some of the biggest events in recent history.

5. Self/less 
Sci-fi thriller in which a dying real estate mogul (Ben Kingsley) transfers his consciousness into a healthy young body (Ryan Reynolds). But immortality has some disturbing side effects and all is not as it seems.
