Everything you need to know about A Simple Favour star Anna Kendrick

The utterly charming Anna Kendrick has made quite the name for herself over the years, from the relatively early days of Twilight through to the blockbusting success of the Pitch Perfect series. She changes things up a bit this month in thriller A Simple Favour, one that, equally unexpectedly, sees Bridesmaids director Paul Feig straying into suspenseful territory. Kendrick plays a mummy blogger investigating the disappearance of her new best friend (Blake Lively), unearthing all manner of skel

Why Disney's The Nutcracker and the Four Realms will be the perfect winter treat

Amazingly, we’re already at the end of August, and, with the summer nights waning, we’re starting to think ahead to this year’s winter releases. With so many great films coming out in the final few months of 2018, we know we’re going to be spoiled for choice.

If the trailers are anything to go by, we’re certainly in for a magical experience. Here’s wh

9 characters from DC's Aquaman that we can't wait to meet

Having been introduced to Jason Momoa's underwater hero ArthurCurry/Aquaman in Justice League last year, we're now just a few short months away from seeing him take on an adventure of his own. Directed by James Wan, the Aquaman movie will serve as our official introduction to the character's history, and his breathtaking underwater home of Atlantis. And we're also set to be introduced to a whole host of new characters. For those of you who are fans of the DC comics, the following names will be

The top secret history of the Mission: Impossible franchise so far

This summer, the sixth film in the blockbusting Mission: Impossible series, Fallout, hits Cineworld screens. The franchise is now 14 years old, and we're willing to bet that you've seen at least one of the movies.

We've put together a handy guide to the history of the franchise, giving you the key facts in anticipation of Fallout's release. The film ser

Mamma Mia: Meet the younger generation of ABBA sequel Here We Go Again

Are you ready to take a trip back to the Greek island of Kalokairi? 10 years after ABBA musical Mamma Mia sang and danced its way into our hearts, it's almost time to be reunited with the gang in sequel Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. A lot has changed since we last saw them, with Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) now back from her travels and running her mother Donna's (Meryl Streep) villa. As she struggles to process her pregnancy, she begins to learn more about her vicacious mother's first experiences o

Why Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will be the darkest movie so far | Cineworld cinemas

Given the entire premise of the Jurassic Park franchise involves dinosaurs and their potential ability to destroy human civilisation, we've learned to expect a lot of drama any time we are reunited with the creatures. In this summer's Jurassic World sequel, Fallen Kingdom, we're about to head down a much darker path than we have before. The trailer alone depicts a lot of gothic, horror-like elements, characteristic of director J.A. Bayona (acclaimed for Spanish ghost story The Orphanage), and w

Everything you need to know about the Jurassic Park franchise | Cineworld cinemas

There's less than two months to go until the release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to Jurassic World and the fifth movie overall in the blockbusting Jurassic Park series.

However, while we have been counting down the days, we realise that you guys might have got a bit rus

The new Avengers? 5 Marvel characters we'd love to take up leadership of the team

We're now just days away from the release of Avengers: Infinity War, and yet it still feels like there is so much we don't know. Directors the Russo brothers have done an impressive job keeping the plot as secretive as possible, and if anything the lack of knowledge has only made us more excited for the movie's arrival. We're expecting to say goodbye to one or more of our favourite Avengers, but just who might be for the chop is a mystery. With a never-ending list of characters joining the film

The unstoppable rise of Tomb Raider's Alicia Vikander

In the space of a few short years, Alicia Vikander has gone from a relatively unknown Swedish actress to one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. With numerous awards to her name and an impressive filmography, it’s easy to see why Vikander has become so in demand over the last few years. This week, she makes her debut as iconic PlayStation adventurer Lara Croft in Tomb Raider, arguably Vikander’s most high-profile role to date. In anticipation of its release, we’ve decided to take a look back ov

From Parks and Rec to Jurassic World: Chris Pratt's rise to action hero status

In the space of a few short years, Chris Pratt has gone from being a relatively unknown actor to a household name. Having started off as the sidekick or the comic relief in the majority of his roles (most famously in TV series Parks and Recreation), few people would have expected Pratt to end up where he is today. In short, he's the lead of not one but two enormous franchises: Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World. In honour of sequel Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom's release this June, we

Deadpool's Ryan Reynolds and 4 other A-listers who've appeared in different comic book universes

For many A-listers, the chance to play a superhero like Deadpool is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Yet with the franchise battle lines drawn between the various comic book properties, actors are often compelled to stick to certain sides. Not only do we have the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and DC Extended Universe (DCEU), there are also standalone Marvel and DC affiliated properties that aren't officially part of a wider franchise. But not all actors feel the need to stay loyal. Take Rya

5 Jurassic World questions we need answers to in Fallen Kingdom

After devouring the worldwide box office back in 2015, it was inevitable Jurassic World would be getting a sequel. Fast forward to this year's Fallen Kingdom, and it’s almost time for us to be reunited with Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard). Set four years after the events of the previous film, Fallen Kingdom sees a role reversal of sorts, as our heroes must now work to rescue the dinosaurs instead of running from them. As the full synopsis explains: "It’s been four years sinc

What does The New Mutants mean for the X-Men franchise?

We’ve got to be honest, we still haven’t recovered from the loss of Logan (Hugh Jackman) last year. Given the demise of such a prominent character, we weren’t sure where the X-Men universe could go next, but now we have our answer. Soon, we will see the arrival of The New Mutants, a superhero horror film in which five new superheroes must come to grips with their abilities while being held in a secret facility. But what does this film mean for the X-Men franchise as a whole? We’ve put together
