Playtime is over



Bond is back on the big screen! That’s right, the film we’ve all been waiting for is finally in cinemas and launching 007 on the mission that changes everything. But, before that, a new Marvel hero announces his arrival in Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings, Jennifer Hudson stars as the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin in Respect, and horror director James Wan conjures a new nightmare with Malignant. Speaking of scares, this spooky season also brings Edgar Wright’s time-bending thriller Last Night In Soho and the next chapter in the Laurie Strode vs Michael Myers saga, Halloween Kills. There’s plenty of treats for the whole family too with a road trip from hell in The Addams Family 2, all-new animated antics in Ron’s Gone Wrong, and a funny family reunion in The Boss Baby 2: Family Business. Not-so-family-friendly fun comes from the Jackass boys who reunite for more (literally) side-splitting shenanigans. There’s also Ridley Scott’s epic The Last Duel, Wes Anderson’s whimsical The French Dispatch, and Denis Villeneuve’s wildly ambitious adaptation of Dune. We’ve all been waiting a very long time for some of these films to come to cinemas, we’re sure it’s going to be worth it! Lee Curtis Editor

When Carrouges’ wife, Marguerite, is viciously assaulted by Le Gris, a charge he denies, she steps forward to accuse her attacker in an act of bravery and defiance that puts her life in jeopardy.

Bond is back on the big screen as Daniel Craig takes his bow in his fifth and final turn as the famed secret agent. Sharp suits, fast cars, and a deadly villain await on the mission that will change everything. WORDS BRODY ROSSITER

Director Cary Joji Fukunaga / Starring Daniel Craig, Ana de Armas, Rami Malek / Genre Action, Adventure,Thriller Despite relinquishing his license to kill and retiring to the sunny climes of Jamaica, James Bond’s newfound tranquillity is short-lived when a visit from his old friend, CIA agent Felix Leiter, pulls him back into active service.

Skyfall and Spectre co-stars Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, and Ralph Fiennes reprise their roles alongside Daniel Craig.

masked man, Safin. Bond will also have to contend with the return of Léa Seydoux’s Dr Madeleine Swann, whose reemergence may well have deadly consequences for him. The star-studded cast is bolstered by Blade Runner 2049’s Ana de Armas and British actor Lashana Lynch who bring a refreshing take on the classic “Bond girl” image. De Armas’ Paloma is a striking and mysterious CIA agent and Lynch’s Nomi is the formidable Double-O agent who took up Bond’s mantle following his retirement. Now an old dog in the spy game, Bond

must learn new tricks as two of the fiercest women he’s ever encountered join him on his most dangerous mission yet. Old flames, new adversaries, and an electrifying journey across beautiful yet perilous landscapes await. With director Cary Joji Fukunaga at the helm, No Time To Die brings the trademark style and action-packed substance that fans know and love but also promises to blur the lines between good and evil while delving deeper into the psyche of Craig’s tortured incarnation of the character.

Jennifer Hudson is Aretha Franklin as the story of the Soul music superstar, civil rights activist, and undisputed icon comes to cinemas. WORDS ROBB SHEPPARD IN CINEMAS 10 SEPTEMBER

Director Liesl Tommy / Starring Jennifer Hudson, Forest Whitaker, Audra McDonald / Genre Biography, Drama Respect charts Aretha Franklin’s incredible career as she rises from child gospel star to become the Queen of Soul, while staring down discrimination in the music industry and systematic racism in wider society. Franklin paid Jennifer Hudson the highest honour any performer could

receive when she personally handpicked her as the one to star as her onscreen. Such overwhelming trust also comes with tremendous pressure and expectation, thankfully the former American Idol finalist, Oscarwinning star of Dream Girls, and Grammy-winning musician continues to prove she’s worthy of such respect. This is undoubtedly Hudson’s show, but much like backing vocalists harmonising with Franklin on stage, a strong support cast has been assembled to complement her lead performance. Oscar-winner

Forest Whitaker makes his third appearance as the father of one of Hudson’s characters as he takes the role of Baptist minister C L Franklin whose paternal support propelled her to superstardom. Six-time Tonywinning stage star Audra McDonald co-stars as Aretha’s mother, while Marlon Wayans of White Chicks fame shows his serious side as Franklin’s producer and first husband Ted White. We all know R-E-S-P-E-C-T spells respect, now it’s time to find out what it means.

ABOUT LAST NIGHT… A fashion designer flashes back in time to London during the Swinging Sixties and gets tangled in a twisted tale of murder and mystery in Edgar Wright’s psychological thriller. WORDS ROBB SHEPPARD IN CINEMAS 29 OCTOBER

Director Edgar Wright / Starring Thomasin McKenzie, Anya Taylor-Joy, Matt Smith / Genre Horror, Mystery, Thriller They say that if you can remember the 1960s, you weren’t really there. The same can’t be said for Thomasin McKenzie’s Eloise; an introverted fashion student who somehow forms a strange, supernatural bond with Anya Taylor-Joy’s Sandy, a famehungry singer who lives sixty years in the past. Before long, the connection between the two deepens, dredging up horrors from the past that spill out into the future. That’s when things get really weird. Last Night In Soho also stars a malicious-looking Matt Smith alongside a slew of sixties stars including Terence Stamp and


Rita Tushingham as well as the late Margaret Nolan and Diana Rigg. London looks lush redressed in sixties splendour and you just know that the soundtrack is going to be killer too. Written and directed by Edgar Wright of The Cornetto Trilogy and Baby Driver fame, this psychological thriller is a stylistic departure from his quick-cut, rhythmic, comedic directorial style but is accompanied by the same expectation that he’ll deliver yet another slice of fried gold. With The Queen’s Gambit’s Anya Taylor-Joy and rising star Thomasin McKenzie as his leading ladies, the chances are we’ll be left wanting more than one night in Soho.

THE 3 STAGES OF JOY THE WITCH Robert Eggers’ cult marmite movie saw Anya Taylor-Joy in her first credited role. From mourning the disappearance of her baby brother to answering “wouldst thou like to live deliciously”, audiences and critics alike recognised that one day, she might just be the GOAT.

PEAKY BLINDERS Taylor-Joy brings a little bit of New York to Birmingham as glamorous Gina Gray in the fifth series of Peaky Blinders. However, her power-hungry scheming set her at odds with the Shelby family so she may not be around for long.

FURIOSA Charlize Theron’s Furiosa stole the show in Mad Max: Fury Road. Following starring roles in Split, Emma, and The Queen’s Gambit, the breakout star is set to step into the badass boots for the apocalyptic warrior’s origin story. Scheduled for 2023, the day Furiosa is released will surely be a lovely day.

TO THE DEATH Two French knights fight to the death for justice in the story of the last sanctioned duel in France’s medieval history. WORDS HARRY FAINT IN CINEMAS 15 OCTOBER

Director Ridley Scott / Starring Jodie Comer, Matt Damon, Adam Driver / Genre Drama, History Journey back to the time of knights in medieval France in this historical epic starring Matt Damon, Adam Driver, Jodie Comer, and Ben Affleck. Ridley Scott is in the director’s chair and, with Gladiator, Kingdom Of Heaven, and All The Money In The World to his name, we’re in very safe hands with this retelling of France’s legendary last duel. Introducing Jean de Carrouges, a battle-hardened knight who governs provinces in Normandy and led multiple conquests against England and the Ottoman Empire. In a cruel twist of fate, the enemy, this time, comes from within his own ranks.





September / October 2021

Jacques Le Gris, his own loyal squire and friend, is accused by Carrouges’ wife, Marguerite, of viciously assaulting her. As Le Gris vehemently denies the allegation and Marguerite faces accusations of lying, the only solution to settle the dispute is with a fight to the death. Trial by combat is as simple and brutal as the Middle Ages were, the two parties battle before a crowd and the survivor is declared to be right. However, this unique case comes with the added element that if Le Gris defeats Carrouges then Marguerite will be burnt at the stake for her false accusation. All three lives are on the line in a legendary tale of loyalty, honour, courage, betrayal, justice, and vengeance that historians are still debating to this day.

Romance, violence, revolution, and cover stories! Welcome to the wonderfully whimsical world Wes Anderson has created for his latest headline-grabbing comedy that features his most eclectic and exciting ensemble cast yet. WORDS BRODY ROSSITER

Extra! Extra! Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Adrien Brody, Frances McDormand, and several more of Anderson’s familiar favourites are joined by some exciting new collaborators.

Timothée Chalamet Hollywood’s heartthrob continues his hot streak starring as the wide-eyed student revolutionary Zeffirelli.

Jeffrey Wright


Director Wes Anderson / Starring Frances McDormand, Timothée Chalamet, Tilda Swinton / Genre Comedy, Drama After a life-changing trip to the irreverent Isle Of Dogs and an unforgettable stay at The Grand Budapest Hotel, director Wes Anderson returns with the latest eccentric entry in his canon of visually flamboyant and emotionally beguiling movies. This time, he’s taking us to a fictional 20th-century French city – a perfect picturesque backdrop for a confirmed Francophile filmmaker – to share stories from an outpost of weekly American magazine The French Dispatch. Billed as a “love letter to journalists”, Anderson’s tenth feature is formed from episodic snapshots of characters as they navigate and

document the wonderfully offbeat, and often tumultuous, world that Anderson has placed them upon. From the vibrant and ornate interiors of the eponymous journal’s offices to claustrophobic greyscale jail cells and chaotic streets strewn with marauding protestors, The French Dispatch’s painstakingly composed bulletins exhibit a longing for new discoveries and a wistful reverence for a bygone era of journalism. Anderson’s inspiration for the film largely stems from articles published within The New Yorker over its near-century-long tenure. With a typically star-studded ensemble cast, and Anderson’s sumptuous eye for detail once again on display, the director’s latest byline will no doubt join the illustrious ranks of his most ambitious work and introduce audiences to another gloriously unique world escape to.

Best known as Bond’s Felix, Wright stars as Roebuck Wright, a food journalist and the illustrious author of The Private Dining Room Of The Police Commissioner.

Elisabeth Moss The Handmaid’s Tale and The Invisible Man star joins The French Dispatch’s staff, seemingly playing a pivotal part in the publication’s journey to print.

Benicio del Toro Benicio del Toro adopts the role of Moses Rosenthaler, an artist behind bars whose powerful works catch the eye of Adrien Brody’s famed art dealer Julien Cadazio.

The Templeton brothers are back together at last, but there isn’t time for fun and games, there’s a new Boss Baby in town and she means business! WORDS ADAM MATULEWICZ IN CINEMAS 22 OCTOBER

Director Tom McGrath / Starring Alec Baldwin, Amy Sedaris, Jeff Goldblum / Genre Animation, Adventure, Comedy A lot as changed since we last saw the Templeton brothers together. They’ve grown up and apart. Tim is now a married stay-at-home dad and Theodore is a successful hedge fund CEO – it’s fair to say their lives have led them down very different paths. That’s until a new Boss Baby emerges and brings them both into the family business! In what turns out to be an actionpacked reunion for the Templeton bros, Tim’s new baby daughter Tina turns out to be the brand-new Boss Baby. As a top-secret agent at Baby Corp, Tina is on a mission to bring down the evil Dr Edwin Armstrong.



September / October 2021

Get ready for more tantrums, bickering, and childish chaos as the brothers are forced to work together as they race against time to help Tina. Alec Baldwin is back in the baby suit and he’s joined by James Marsden as his big brother, Tim; Eva Longoria as Tim’s wife, Carol; Ariana Greenblatt as their seven-year-old daughter, Tabitha; and Amy Sedaris as Tina. Jeff Goldblum rounds out an exciting voice cast as Dr Edwin Armstrong, the strange headmaster of Tabitha’s school who’s definitely up to no good and who the Templeton trio set out to stop in this sequel that promises another perfect family trip to the cinema.


Ted’s long-suffering older brother must put aside his sibling rivalry for a second time in order to help his baby bro and Boss Baby daughter on their dangerous mission.

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 19 NOVEMBER

Director Joseph Kosinski / Starring Tom Cruise, Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly / Genre Action, Drama 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.
