Our film specialist, Ciara O’Hara, selects some of the powerful stories making an impact in cinemas soon...
This is the latest mind-bending thriller from Christopher Nolan. Nolan is the genius behind DUNKIRK, INTERSTELLAR, MEMENTO, THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY and, one of my all-time favourites, INCEPTION. The excellent cast includes John David Washington, Robert Pattinson and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as well as Michael Caine who has appeared in all of Nolan's films since BATMAN BEGINS in 2005!
Little is known about the plot except that it involves international espionage and a form of time travel - I'm certainly intrigued!
WONDER WOMAN 1984 02.10.20
This follows the phenomenal success of the record-breaking 2017 film, which had the highest opening for a live-action film by a female director. Wonder Woman squares off against The Cheetah, a villain with superhuman strength and agility, all to the back-drop of a killer ‘80s soundtrack!
With the magnificent Kirsten Wiig playing The Cheetah and bringing her own unique comedic talents to the role, we really cannot wait for this.
THE FRENCH DISPATCH 16.10.20
Wes Anderson (THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL, FANTASTIC MR. FOX) brings us another delightful and idiosyncratic tale. This time his talents are turned towards a fictional, illustrious magazine, its staff and the stories it publishes. The outstanding ensemble cast includes frequent Anderson collaborators Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton and Saoirse Ronan, as well as Elisabeth Moss and Timothée Chalamet.
As is typical of Anderson, each set and scene is exquisitely styled to look like an intricate work of art, which no doubt the film will be too.
TOP GUN: MAVERICK 23.12.20
TOP GUN was the biggest film of 1986 and not only launched the careers of its stars Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer, but even increased sales of Ray Ban aviator sunglasses by 40%! Tom Cruise recently told Empire Magazine that he doesn't think "a movie will ever be made this way again."
This new chapter sees Cruise and Kilmer reprise their roles as elite fighter pilots and also brings Miles Teller, Jon Hamm and Jennifer Connolly on board to join the fun. Expect action, romance, tears, laughter and plenty of excitement!
