8th September


New Line Cinema’s horror thriller IT, directed by Andrés Muschietti (Mama), is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel of the same name, which has been terrifying readers for decades. When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

We'd give this thriller a whopping 9/10 - it's a must see for the classic Stephen King novel.

Wind River

WIND RIVER follows U.S. Fish & Wildlife agent CORY LAMBERT (Jeremy Renner) as he is forced to confront his past when he joins a rookie FBI agent in a quest to solve a murder on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming. 

You're looking at a favourite for this film with 8/10 rating!

14th September

American Assassin

AMERICAN ASSASSIN follows the rise of Mitch Rapp (Dylan OaBrien), a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton). The pair is then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy (Sanaa Lathan) to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together the three discover a pattern in the violence leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East.

Another film that promosies to be great if it's anything like Vince Flynn's novel - we're expecting an 8/10 movie.

15 September

This story is quite interesting but didn't quite fill our boots 6/10 - let us know whether you agreed!

The Jungle Bunch

This funny family adventure had us tiggled so we gave it a 7/10.

20 September

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Secret Service introduced the world to Kingsman - an independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe. In “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” our heroes face a new challenge. When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy...

This hotly awaiting movie is a must see in 4DX and we're expecting another epic 8/10 movie like the first one.

29 September


In Flatliners, five medical students, obsessed by the mystery of what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring and dangerous experiment: by stopping their hearts for short periods of time, each triggers a near-death experience – giving them a firsthand account of the afterlife. But as their experiments become increasingly dangerous, they are each haunted by the sins of their pasts, brought on by the paranormal consequences of trespassing to the other side.

This movie has a real cult following following the 1990 film with the same name. This serves as a sequel and we're expecting this movie to be quite creeping - leaving a 7/10 for this one.
