Buzz Lightyear is back as you’ve never seen him before. Prepare for lift off on an intergalactic adventure that reveals the origins of the man who inspired the world’s most famous space toy. WORDS ADAM MATULEWICZ IN CINEMAS 17 JUNE

Director Angus MacLane / Starring Chris Evans, Peter Sohn, Taika Waititi / Genre Animation, Adventure, Sci-Fi Before he became the mostwanted toy on Andy’s and every other kid’s wish list, Buzz Lightyear was a real space hero. Or rather, a real fictional hero within the Toy Story universe.

After being stranded on an alien planet for a whole year, Buzz sets out to search the stars for a way home.

YOU AIN’T SEEN TOP G UN Tom Cruise takes to the skies as Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in the long-awaited sequel to the widely adored 1986 aviation actioner. WORDS ROBB SHEPPARD IN CINEMAS 25 MAY

Director Joseph Kosinski / Starring Tom Cruise, Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly / Genre Action, Thriller After more than thirty years of service, Maverick is back on the big screen where he belongs. For those worried about preserving the legacy of such a treasured original, everything we’ve seen so far suggests that not a whole lot has changed for Maverick. He’s still not as observant of the chain of command as his superiors would like, he’s just as skilled when it comes to unauthorised flybys, and he still spends his downtime playing volleyball. What has changed though, is those around him. While Val Kilmer’s Ice Man is set to return, Maverick’s love Charlie won’t be as Jennifer Connelly joins the stellar supporting cast as (the) Penny Benjamin - the local bar owner famous for a romantic run

in with Maverick. Will they find a loving feeling? Also added to the mix is Miles Teller’s Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw, the son of Maverick’s late co-pilot Goose, who has just joined the new recruits at Maverick’s flight school. Hot-headed and brash, Rooster is much more of a Maverick than his mild-mannered father which makes his relationship with his new mentor all the more intriguing. With a new generation of pilots under his wing, Maverick lifts off on a death-defying mission that will see him confront his deepest fears and possibly bring him some sought-after closure as Top Gun returns to take our breath away once again.

Jurassic World is no more. Now, dinosaurs live – and hunt – in our world. Facing history’s most fearsome predators, can humans keep dominion of our planet? WORDS CHRIS WASEY IN CINEMAS 10 JUNE

At Fallen Kingdom’s epic conclusion, former Jurassic World ranger Owen Grady and park manager Claire Dearing save the dinosaurs and release them into the wild. Since then, dino population has exploded across the globe with humans finding themselves living side by side with enormous roaming herds, and hunted by creatures far beyond their control. Now, four years on, our heroes must fight to stem the tide of human-dinosaur conflict. With humanity’s place at the top of the food chain at risk, and facing terrifying new prehistoric predators, they’ll need some help.

Returning alongside Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are the stars from the original trilogy: Laura Dern’s Dr Ellie Sattler, Sam Neill’s Dr Alan Grant, and Jeff Goldblum’s Dr Ian Malcolm. Forced back into action, the world-weary trio – who know a thing or two about dinosaur survival – may be the key to finding a solution. Returning too is director Colin Trevorrow, who brought the franchise roaring back to life with the $1billion breaking Jurassic World, and promises human drama on an enormous scale as he brings the Jurassic era to an epic end. Thirty years after Steven Spielberg’s legendary dino debut, Jurassic World Dominion lays the story to rest and, whichever species claims dominion over Earth, may also bring dinosaur’s extinction from summer blockbusters. Yet, whenever we’ve thought it’s dead and buried, this franchise, like life, finds a way.

THE END OF AN ERA 1993 JURASSIC PARK

A visionary billionaire funds a genetics programme to revive dinosaurs from prehistoric DNA. When the park’s systems are sabotaged, dinosaurs escape and begin to hunt.

DEAD LINE

Director Scott Derrickson calls up past collaborator Ethan Hawke for his new supernatural horror thriller where the dead can speak through a disconnected phone. Dare you answer the call? WORDS AARON POTTER IN CINEMAS 24 JUNE

Director Scott Derrickson / Starring Ethan Hawke, Mason Thames, James Ransone / Genre Horror, Thriller Ten years after setting audience’s hearts racing with his surprise horror hit Sinister – scientifically the scariest film ever according to a 2020 study – Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson hangs up his superhero cape and reteams with Blumhouse to dial back in to his terrifying roots for a new nightmare, The Black Phone. He brings with him long-time friend and Sinister star Ethan Hawke as his lead, only this time, he isn’t the hero. Playing the villain is definitely a departure from what we’ve come to expect from the Training Day and Before Sunset star, but a sadistic serial killer is a terrifying turn that he’s fully embracing – even sporting his own ghoulish mask. This nightmare image is what Mason Thames’ Finney Shaw finds himself facing when he’s kidnapped and forced to survive in

the killer’s soundproof basement. Luckily, or perhaps not depending on your perspective, he’ll have help planning his escape from a nearby disconnected phone that can somehow make contact with the killer’s deceased victims. The Black Phone has been generating a lot of buzz since its debut at last year’s Fantastic Fest. Since then, critics have been ringing the bell for the chilling tone and Hawke’s unnerving performance in a new horror that’s set to be even scarier than anything we’ve seen from Derrickson before.

Supporting Acts

Baz Luhrmann assembles a bevy of stars to take the roles of Elvis’s family, friends, and musical influences.

The life and times of Elvis Presley are laid bare in an extravagant biopic from the director of Romeo & Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, and The Great Gatsby. WORDS LEE CURTIS IN CINEMAS 24 JUNE

Director Baz Luhrmann / Starring Austin Butler, Tom Hanks, Olivia DeJonge, Luke Bracey, Helen Thomson / Genre Biography, Drama Bold costumes, big musical numbers, and breathtaking visuals, Baz Luhrmann brings the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s story to the big screen in typically spectacular fashion. The visionary director’s unmistakable style needs a little less introduction than his latest leading man. Having put Leonardo DiCaprio, Ewan McGregor, and future Greatest Showman Hugh Jackman in the spotlight, the Oscar-nominated director now sets the stage for Austin Butler. Breaking out from Broadway, the relative newcomer has got the dazzling wardrobe, quaffed hair, and hip-swinging swagger. But he doesn’t just look the part, Butler steps into the blue suede shoes to truly become the King in a transformative performance that captures Elvis’s style, infamous southern drawl, and iconic singing voice. Also transforming is Tom Hanks, who’s almost unrecognisable in an

out-of-type role as Elvis’s notoriously controlling manager Colonel Tom Parker. Their fractious relationship is the focal point for a film that follows Elvis from his music-loving childhood to his chart-topping stardom. Following them over two decades, the film showcases how exceptional success also comes with strife as Parker’s vice-like grip stretches to all aspects of Elvis’s life, including his relationship with his beloved Priscilla. There are external pressures too as the film promises a politicallycharged portrait of an everchanging America as Elvis’s rise to fame intersects with social unrest, racial tensions, and the assassinations of President Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. With perfectly-cast stars, spectacular songs, and extravagant style, Baz Luhrmann’s jukebox musical biopic is a big screen spectacle that’s sure to leave cinemagoers all shook up.

Far, far away from DC’s trademark darkness, the Super-Pets promise to put the comical back in comic book movie. The voice cast will make your ears prick up too! Superhero film fans have longed to see A Quiet Place’s John Krasinski in superhero tights and can experience him here voicing the Man Of Steel himself. Meanwhile, Keanu Reeves dons the cowl to voice The Dark Knight. Fetch in SNL star Kate McKinnon, Sonic The Hedgehog’s Ben Schwartz, and a Machiavellian Marc Maron as Lex Luthor, and the Super-Pets are ready to take the lead this summer.

A Rock And A Hart Place

Central Intelligence

Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson make their tag team debut as an unwitting accountant and a CIA agent thrown together on a mission. Their chemistry is off the charts.

Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw

Hart only pops up for a cameo, but seeing him pretend he does leg day and drop his voice an octave to impress The Rock and The Stath is furiously funny.

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle

After getting sucked into a video game, Hart’s college football star has to get used to his avatar’s diminutive stature, while Johnson’s geek must know his role as a hulking hero. They take their banter and bickering to the next level as they buddy up again in the sequel.

Can you help NHS hospital patients watch the latest film releases for free? MediCinema is a UK charity which builds and runs cinemas inside NHS hospitals. Our cinemas give patients the magical escape and power of a big screen movie, helping them to leave the reality of the wards and their medical conditions behind. And they can visit in their beds, wheelchairs and with medical equipment. Emerging from the past two years, many more of us understand what it is like to feel isolated, both at work, home, and away from friends and family. But for hospital patients, it has been really hard. They have been more isolated on the wards than ever before with few or no visits from loved ones. A visit to a MediCinema brings a sense of connection, shared experience, joy, and distraction – just like it does in your local cinema.

To donate and learn more about what we do, please scan the QR code or visit our website.

Lee & Max: We were completely blown away when we walked into the MediCinema for the first time and saw that it was like any other cinema – just with additional spaces for hospital beds! I think it’s sheer madness that there’s a cinema like that within a hospital – it’s brilliant! ”

Tom: I’ve been in and out of hospital receiving physical and mental health treatment Having the MediCinema is something that saved me from the very dark days. To be able to be taken away from the ward and drift into the depths of a film is invaluable. ” Registered Charity No.:1058197 Registered in Scotland No.: SC039704
