The Many Saints of Newark
22nd September 2021
The late James Gandolfini's son Michael stars in this eagerly anticipated Sopranos prequel. The latter plays the young mob boss Tony Soprano in this sure to be hard-hitting drama, which comes from original series creator David Chase
No Time To Die
30th September 2021
It's been a long old wait for the 25th Bond movie, one that promises to send Daniel Craig out in style. Some 14 years after his debut in the blistering Casino Royale, Craig's 007 must now confront the nefarious Safin (Rami Malek), as Cary Joji Fukunaga directs and Billie Eilish provides the moody theme song.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage
15th October 2021
The Venom sequel now has its title, a sure indication of how Woody Harrelson's feared villain, teased at the end of the first movie, is set to run rampant. Andy Serkis takes over as director with Tom Hardy back in the central role of symbiote-ridden journalist Eddie Brock. Michelle Williams is also returning as Brock's ex-wife Anne Weying, and Moonlight's Naomie Harris will also be turning up as the villainous Shriek.
5th November 2021
Marvel's Phase Four era continues with the enigmatic and fantastical-sounding Eternals. The movie will introduce us to the most powerful beings in Marvel comic book lore, so it makes sense that there's a hefty cast to match. Angelina Jolie, Kit Harington, Richard Madden, Salma Hayek and Kumail Nanjiani unite under director Chloe Zhao (The Rider).
12th November 2021
Director Jason Reitman steps into his father Ivan's shoes to continue the Ghostbusters legacy. This latest instalment of the spook-battling franchise is a direct sequel to the original films from 1984 and 1989, in which one family discovers a remarkable Ghostbusters legacy in their newly purchased farmhouse. Paul Rudd stars as a teacher with memories of that all-important day in New York when the Ghostbusters first fought evil.
26th November 2021
Walt Disney Animation Studios presents its first South American fable: a Columbian-based musical with songs from Hamilton's Lin-Manuel Miranda.
West Side Story
10th December 2021
Steven Spielberg's latest is an all-singing, all-dancing remake of the classic, Oscar-winning 1961 musical. Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein's infectious show tunes promise to get a new lease of life with Spielberg at the helm, and the fresh-faced young cast is led by Baby Driver's Ansel Elgort as Jet leader Tony.
Spider-Man: No Way Home
17th December 2021
Tom Holland is set to swing high in his third solo movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Plot details are thin on the ground, but we can expect it to continue the shock revelations of 2019 blockbuster Far Far Home, which culminated in Spidey's identity being leaked to the entire world. Zendaya is returning as MJ, and director Jon Watts is back behind the camera.
The King's Man
22nd December 2021
Director Matthew Vaughn presents the action-packed prequel to the hit Kingsman spy series. Set in the early 20th century, the film shows us how the innocuous Savile Row tailors shop (Oxfords, not Brogues, remember) first became the front for the daredevil Kingsman spy agency. Ralph Fiennes and Harris Dickinson replace Colin Firth and Taron Egerton, with the cast also including Gemma Arterton, Djimon Hounsou and Rhys Ifans.
The Matrix Resurrections
24th December 2021
Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss return as Neo and Trinity in the fourth instalment of the Matrix saga. Given that 2003's Matrix Revolutions concluded with the death of both characters, we're curious to know how the story will develop. Nevertheless, with Lana Wachowski back at the helm and the rumoured inclusion of younger Morpheus, there are plenty of reasons to be excited.
