The PAW Patrol Movie
13th August 2021
Perfect for the kids, the PAW Patrol is back! Everybody’s favourite heroic pups are back for a movie this time as Mayor Humdinger, their biggest rival creates havoc around Adventure City. Join Ryder, Rubble, Zuma, Skye, Marshall, Rocky and Chase at the big screens this August!
Don’t Breathe 2
13th August 2021
The first film showed us that it’s not a good idea to cross Stephen Lang. Well, he’s back for some more blind justice in the sequel, Don’t Breathe 2.
Stephen Lang plays Norman, a blind veteran who uses his military training to take on some petty thieves who broke into his home, in the first film. This time around, it looks as if Norman’s past is about to catch up with him and a young girl he is caring for. We can’t wait to see this hit the big screens this August.
27th August 2021
Oscar-winner Jordan Peele has unleashed an exciting and fresh take on the blood-chilling 1992 horror film, Candyman.
A decade after the last of the Cabrini Towers were torn down, Anthony and his partner are living happily in a loft in the now gentrified Cabrini. But an encounter with an old-timer exposes Anthony to the true story behind Candyman, the word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to spiritually repeat his name into a mirror.
Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore this story into his paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels a terrifying wave of violence and destiny upon him. Can he save himself and his loved ones?
Shang-Chi and The Legend Of The Ten Rings
3rd September 2021
If you’re one to follow the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s (MCU) long and effectively correlated timeline, Shang-Chi and The Legend Of The Ten Rings is the twenty-fifth film in the MCU and the second film of phase four, so it’s not one to miss.
In the two-minute-long preview, we get a taster at Marvel’s first kung-fu masterpiece. It looks like we’ll be following Shang-Chi as he encounters an unusual upbringing, training to be a young assassin. As he hits his twenties, Shang-Chi leaves his life behind and spends all of his time hanging with Awkwafina. That’s until his father, Wenwu a.k.a The Mandarin comes calling with a terrorist organisation, the 10 Rings.
We’re unsure how Shang-Chi’s adventures will fit into the next phase of the MCU, but we are excited to see how it all unravels.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage
15th September 2021
Tom Hardy returns to the big screen as the lethal protector, Venom. This is another one of Marvel’s highly rated films that’s returning back to the screens with a new, exciting villain, played by Woody Harrelson. In this sequel, Hardy a.k.a Brock tries to reignite his career in journalism by interviewing serial killer Cletus Kasady (Harrelson), who similar to Venom, becomes the host of an alien symbiote called Carnage. Carnage amplifies Kasady’s psychotic nature, making him far more dangerous and mentally unstable than before…
No Time To Die
30th September 2021
Last, and certainly not least, we have Daniel Craig returning back for his fifth outing as the British MI6 agent. The last time we left him, Bond had left active service and was enjoying a tranquil life, but it seems his peace is short-lived as he is recruited to rescue a kidnapped scientist from a mysterious villain, Lyutsifer Safin (played by Rami Malek), who’s armed with dangerous new technology.
If we know anything, it’s that you can’t keep a good 00 agent down for long! Check out the 25th James Bond movie finally available to watch this September.
