    A few big movies coming out this weekend, including the nationwide release of "American Sniper."

    Paddington (Animated, comedy, PG, Starring Ben Whishaw, Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters) - This film tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says "Please look after this bear. Thank you," and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist. (Read more about Paddington)

    The Wedding Ringer (Comedy, R, Starring Kevin Hart, Josh Gad, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Ken Howard, Cloris Leachman) - Doug Harris is a loveable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man. With less than two weeks to go until he marries the girl of his dreams, Doug is referred to Jimmy Callahan, owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need. What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy.

    American Sniper (Action, R, Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Kyle Gallner, Luke Grimes, Jake McDorman) - U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy and courageous exploits earn him the nickname "Legend." However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world. Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the SEAL creed to "leave no one behind". But upon returning to his family, Chris finds that it is the war he can't leave behind.

    Spare Parts (Family, PG-13, Starring Alexa PenaVega, Marisa Tomei, Jamie Lee Curtis, Carlos PenaVega, George Lopez) - This is a true life story about four Hispanic high school students who form a robotics club under the leadership of their school's newest teacher, Fredi. With no experience, $800, used car parts and a dream, this rag tag team goes up against the country's reigning robotics champion, MIT. On their journey, they learn not only how to build a robot- they learn to build a bond that will last a lifetime.

  • Couples line up to enter the Post's Win a Wedding 2015 competition

    Six loved-up couples signed up to the Post’s latest competition on the first day in the hope of winning an unforgettable wedding experience.

    Win a Wedding was launched on Monday and Paul Shilcock, 31, and Jenna Willett, 27, were one of the first couples to enter. The duo, of Cotgrave, met while working in Morrisons four years ago.

    Mother-of-three Jenna said: “We love each other and getting married would finish everything off. I’ve always dreamed of being a princess for the day – I’d love a big eye-catching dress.”

    Following in their footsteps are Samuel Bryan, 24, and Sarah Schofield, 23, of Sutton-in-Ashfield, who feel like getting married is the next step in their five-year relationship.

    Sarah said: “We really want to get married but can’t afford to. We’ve been to a few weddings at Woodborough Hall and it’s a dream location.”

    The wedding will take place in the hall’s impressive Orangery Room. The prize package caters for 50 day guests and 100 evening guests and includes a four-course meal and an evening buffet.

    Joanne Robinson, the venue’s wedding planner, said: “Every wedding is different.

    “We have one wedding a day, making the hall entirely yours, so if you want to change things around you can do.

    “We’re a prestigious wedding location so it’s nice to be able to give that to a couple who wouldn’t have the opportunity to get married here otherwise.”

    This year, one couple will get their hands on a wedding package worth £13,000. Nine other local businesses are lining up to ensure a fantastic day for the winning couple.

    The sponsors will provide the wedding dress, create a wonderful hair and make-up look for the bride, take the photographs and provide flowers, entertainment, decorations, the cake, rings and a wedding car.

    Make sure your make-up lasts all day long:

    Look after your skin in the run up the big day, set make-up using powder and avoid touching your face – these are the top tips for ensuring your make-up lasts on your wedding day.

    This advice comes from freelance bridal artist Amy Wilkinson who will provide the make-up for the Post’s Win a Wedding competition.

    Amy said: “If you have an itch it’s best to warm up your ring finger and tap it on the affected area.”

    Using a kit filled with premium products and tools, the DFMA academy trained artist – who first discovered make-up due to her love of art – will transform the winner, her mother and up to three bridesmaids into a beautiful blushing bridal party.

    Amy said: “It’s really nice to give something back and help someone out.

    “A wedding is big moment in everyone’s lives and I really hope the prize goes to someone who deserves it and wouldn’t be able to afford it any other way.

    “Make-up is a way for people to express themselves.

    "I love helping women to feel more confident and pretty, creating a beautiful polished version of themselves."
