Kingsman: The Golden Circle (29 September 2017)
When Kingsman: The Secret Service came out in 2014, everyone was talking about this. It somehow managed to bring together Bond’s swagger and a healthy dose of comedy and improbability. This year, we’re going Stateside. Kingsman are teaming up with their US counterparts, Statesman, to protect the world from the latest threat. Colin Firth and Taron Egerton will be joined by Channing Tatum and Halle Berry for what is sure to be another instant hit.
It (8 September 2017)
This remake of King’s classic horror novel has to be one of the most anticipated films of the year. The 1990 miniseries was loved by fans so this new film has big boots to fill. In It we’ll see a group of children facing their worst nightmare – an evil clown. There are lots of twists along the way though so don’t get too comfortable.
The Lego Ninjago Movie (22 September 2017)
To be honest, I’ve always been baffled by these Lego films. But I gave the first one and shot and it turned out to be really, really good. Since then, however, they’ve continued to churn out even more year on year and are they any good? Critics seem to think so but I’ve got my doubts. After the superhero craze we’ve seen in the film industry over the past few years are we now entering the Lego era? This new instalment pays homage to Asian culture though, which gets a thumbs up from me. Hopefully it won’t disappoint.
Inhumans (1 September 2017)
Inhumans is actually a new Marvel TV show but it’s making its debut on IMAX screens for that extra pazazz. It doesn’t air on ABC until the 29th September but if you can’t wait until then you can pay up to see it in an IMAX cinema. You probably won’t get your moneys worth from this experience but if you’re a Marvel fan then you should jump at this opportunity before it’s too late.
Stronger (22 September 2017)
Stronger tells the true story of Boston of Jeff Baumann, a survivor of the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing. After losing both of his legs in the tragedy, he became the figurehead of the victims of the bombing. However, whilst he was thrust into the public eye he was battling internally with his own emotions. This is based on Baumann’s own memoir and Jake Gyllenhaal takes up the lead role in a film that is sure to tug the heart strings.
American Made (29 September 2017)
Cruise returns to the screen in another action film that probably won’t have much substance but will still come out with a bang. In this true story thriller, Cruise plays a pilot who is asked to run a covert mission in South America by the CIA. Then he becomes a drug courier for a cartel before then becoming a DEA informant to avoid being incarcerated. Sounds a little all over the place but Cruise fans will lap it up.
Close Encounters (15 September 2017)
So this isn’t actually a new movie. This is still Spielberg’s 1977 classic, but they’ve restored it and come out with a new 4K version. If you’re a big Spielberg fan then this is the perfect way to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 1970s film and it can’t disappoint.
Mother! (15 September 2017)
Mother sees Black Swan’s Aronofsky return the horror genre but not much is known about what this film entails. Jennifer Lawrence takes up the lead role though so you know it’s going to be a great film even if you have to squeeze your eyes shut for most of it.
Home Again (29 September 2017)
As the only romantic comedy on the list, Home Again is for those looking for something a little more light-hearted. Reese Witherspoon plays the lead, a 40-year-old mother of two who has recently separated from her husband. On a birthday night out she agrees to let three aspiring film makes stay in her guest house but things start to get complicated. Especially when her husband turns up at her doorstep.
