CopshopIn a nutshell: You can run but you can’t hide from a maniacal Gerard Butler
Why we’re exited: Show us a better time than settling down in a comfy seat with a large helping of Nachos and a Tango Ice Blast to watch Gerard Butler and Frank Grillo go at each other for a couple of hours. We’ll wait… Copshop sees Grillo so desperate to escape Butler he gets himself locked up in a police cell because that will be safe right? Right? (*cue manic laughter from Gerard Butler*)
See it on the big screen… Because executive producer James Masciello made it to be seen that way, calling it “a big time event experience with an original bent”
MalignantIn a nutshell: Woman is tormented by horrific visions...except they’re not visions 😱
Why we’re excited: When the director of Saw, Insidious 1 & 2, and The Conjuring 1 & 2 has a new horror out, you know you’re going to need the large popcorn to hide behind. James Wan said he wanted to go back to his roots and make something for his hardcore horror fans that was “gritty” and “visceral.” Translation: completely and utterly terrifying.
See it on the big screen… To jump and gasp with a crowd in the dark. There’s nothing like it.
RespectIn a nutshell: Pay some respect to a musical legend
Why we’re excited: What makes a great musical biopic? How about an emotional backstory, an incredible back catalogue and a member of musical royalty — aka Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin. Let’s also throw in a big dose of glitz, some fabulous costumes and a performance by one of *this* generation’s best voices, Jennifer Hudson. Director Liesl Tommy says it’s about “the woman with the greatest voice on earth, struggling to find her voice”. Respect to that.
See it on the big screen… For sounds to make your spine tingle. There’s no lip syncing here: to make her performances authentic Jennifer Hudson sang live on camera.
The Many Saints of Newark
In a nutshell: A big screen origin story for TV’s greatest gangster
Why we’re excited: Arguably the best TV show ever made (fight us), it's only right that The Sopranos is finally getting its time on the big screen, with this much-anticipated prequel. Talking of things that are written in the stars…young Tony Soprano is played by Michael Gandolfini, the son of the late James Gandolfini (AKA the original Tony Soprano). And if The Sopranos wasn’t already gangster enough for you...how about an appearance from Goodfellas’ Ray Liotta?
See it on the big screen... Because it’s what it deserves...Plus, you *really* don’t want to upset the Soprano family
Oasis Knebworth 1996In a nutshell: Experience the 90s’ most legendary concerts
Why we’re excited: Twenty-five years ago, Oasis played two historic — and humongous — gigs to a quarter of a million people at Knebworth. This film looks back at the concerts that defined a generation, featuring interviews with the main players and tonnes of previously unseen live footage. If you were there (lucky you), here’s your chance to relive every glorious sweat-soaked moment. If you weren’t, you’ll feel like you’re down the front with perfect sound and the best view.
See it on the big screen… Because huge gig + giant screen + massive hits = BIG goosebumps
Back on the Big ScreenIn a nutshell: Putting classics, old and new, back where they belong
Why we’re excited: All films are better on the big screen, but there are some where it’s just *in the rules* (hey, we don’t make ‘em) to experience them that way. Luckily, we’re putting some stone cold classics right back where they belong. Never seen Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy in all its cinematic glory? Always wondered just how much scarier Alien and Aliens are on the big screen? (*a lot*). Your time has come.
See it on the big screen… For the first time, or the tenth time. Either way, it’s special
