DON’T MAKE A SOUND After narrowly escaping their besieged home, the Abbott family are forced out into the terrifying world from which they fled in a bid to survive - but what new threats await them? WORDS BRODY ROSSITER RELEASE 19 MARCH / Director John Krasinski / Starring Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Cillian Murphy / Genre Horror, Thriller

A

Quiet Place became a boxoffice sensation thanks to its intriguing and thrilling take on the classic creature feature. Despite their tireless efforts to build a silent retreat in the country and keep their young family safe, Lee (John Krasinski), Evelyn (Emily Blunt), and their two children (Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe) were forced to confront the terrifying predators known as the Death Angels during the film’s finale. While this breathtaking battle revealed a weakness in the seemingly impenetrable armour of Earth’s new

apex predators, that vital information came at a devastating cost. With Lee gone and their oncepeaceful retreat in ruins, Evelyn and her children are forced to return to the world from which they fled. However, what awaits them offers little respite. This claustrophobic and nail-biting sequel journeys back to the first destructive days of the alien invasion, while also revealing the true toll upon those who managed to stay alive. Cillian Murphy and Djimon Hounsou join the fight for survival as the ravaged communities living in the shadows are revealed. With danger lurking around every corner, it’s quickly revealed that the creatures aren’t the only threats that lay beyond the sand path.

CREATURE FEATURE!

Despite remaining mostly hidden throughout A Quiet Place, the constant threat of the alien creature s referred to as The Angels Of Dea th provided a chilling and intangible antagonist to the Abbott Family. How ever, following the revelation s of the first film, the sequel may wel l delve into their origins. Hyperse nsitive to sound, extremely fast, and coated in seemingly impenetrab le armour, the creatures managed to wipe out the majority of the hum an race in just three months. A Qui et Place: Part II depicts their arri val on Earth, and the instantly devasta ting impact they had. Director and cowriter John Krasinski has previously highlighted the creatures’ almost invuln erable nature. Can the Abbotts’ new kno wledge finally offer hope for the human race?

n 1998, Disney took a gamble making Mulan. She didn’t fit the fairytale princess mould, cinema audiences had never heard of her, and it skirted as close to feminism as mainstream animation dared to get. Knowing her ageing father would not survive conscription, Mulan steals his armour and sword and joins the army in his place. Disguised as a man, she must survive perilous challenges

and face the barbaric Bori Khan and ruthless sorceress Xian Lang in battle to save her homeland. While the story may not have changed much, Disney are taking risks again; for the first time letting a live-action remake take its own direction. This Mulan is bigger, bolder, and much more dangerous - there are no songs, ghostly ancestors, or cartoon spirit dragons here. Featuring an all-Asian cast, Mulan introduces Chinese star Yifei Liu in the title role. While the star who fronts fantasy epics in China will be a new

name to most, her supporting ensemble including martial arts legends Donnie Yen, Jet Li, and Jason Scott Lee will be well known to western audiences. Described by director Niki Caro as “a big, girly martial arts epic”, the scale is just phenomenal and with an enormous budget (the most afforded to any Disney release not called Avengers), Mulan will prove she’s tough enough to rival any Marvel blockbuster.

But when Peter overhears their plans to bring some two-legged children into their makeshift family, he’s convinced that he and the other animals will soon be replaced and forgotten. Believing he’s better off on his own, Peter leads the animals out of the garden and to the city of Gloucester where a bountiful farmers’ market with its ripe radishes, crunchy carrots, and host of mischief-loving critters get him to thinking he’s found a home where he can truly be himself. But when his antics put the family he left behind in danger, Peter is forced to decide who he really is and save them. Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley reprise their roles as rabbits Mopsy, Flopsy, and Cottontail, while Domhnall Gleeson and Rose Byrne return as the newlywed McGregors. Following the huge box-office success of the first film, expect even more hijinks and plenty of heart - from Peter and his friends in this second outing.

That’s life for a community of women living in married quarters while their husbands serve in Afghanistan.

whether it’s who should lead the choir, pop music or hymns, or if there should even be a choir at all. As the unique stress of their situation grows and as tragedy strikes, the squabbling leaders realise the choir is needed now more than ever, and their shambolic start slowly comes together. But can they keep this newfound harmony when they’re asked to perform at the annual Festival of Remembrance in front of a national television audience? Twenty years ago, The Full Monty captured lightning in a bottle and now its director Peter Cattaneo brings a worthy companion piece. The puzzle may be different, but with laughs, tears, heart, soul, and social commentary, all of the classic feelgood Britcom parts are the same.

This being Pixar, audiences should expect to have their hearts pulled

ONWARD

24 March / April 2020

immensely while watching this father and son(s) tale. This may be an alternate universe where elements of mythological fantasy collide with reallife suburbia, but the story promises to be extremely relatable, touching, and prescient - as is traditionally the case for Disney’s prestige animation house. Onward marks only the second time that writer-director Dan Scanlon has taken the helm of a movie, with his last being 2013’s Monster’s University. This time, however, Scanlon has the challenge of introducing a whole new world instead of building off a preexisting one. Here’s hoping Onward can capture the heart of Mike and Sully’s prequel adventure because between the biker fairies, rabid unicorns, and ancient wizardry…it certainly has the magic.

PIXAR’S DYNAMIC DUOS MIKE & SULLY Pixar used the little and large comedy trope to great effect as Monster Inc’s best friends were an inseparable pair. Opposites definitely attracted this time.

MR & MRS INCREDIBLE The Incredibles easily lived up to their family name after blasting onto the scene in 2004, not least due to the central dynamic shared between Mr and Mrs Incredible who shared great chemistry, even when balancing domestic duties with superhero antics.

WOODY & BUZZ What began as a bitter rivalry for Andy’s affection blossomed into a beautiful friendship. One might be a cowboy and the other a space ranger, but they’ve certainly got a friend in each other.

WONDER WOMAN 1984

Barbara transforms into a terrifying new villain, the Cheetah, who’s stronger than Wonder Woman and far more ferocious. But that’s not all - there’s also the small matter of her lost love Steve Trevor who has mysteriously returned. Wonder Woman became the highest-grossing female-led superhero movie of all-time, so fans will be thrilled to see director Patty Jenkins returning with Gal Gadot for the hotly-anticipated sequel. Co-starring Pedro Pascal, Kristen Wiig, and Chris Pine, Wonder Woman 1984 promises to deliver all of the heart and charm from their first outing but on a much larger, and more action-packed, scale. While their main narrative remains in some sort of stasis, the DCEU standalone projects continue to receive critical and commercial success. Following Joker and the bonkers fun of Birds Of Prey - and with the MCU on an Endgame comedown - for the first time in a long time, perhaps it’s DC that’s the superhero franchise to be most excited about.
