Starting off with movies, arguably the biggest film trailer to drop this week was for Antonio Banderas' return to voicing anthropomorphic cat Puss in Boots.

Having first appeared in Shrek 2 before getting his own spin-off animation flick in 2011, this sequel to the latter sees Puss having used up eight of his nine lives.

Wanting them back, the cat embarks on his grandest quest yet.
