Summer may be behind us, but autumn promises many spectacular big-screen treats. Here’s what you can expect to see at Cineworld over the next few weeks.

The Woman King

Available 4 October 2022

The mighty Viola Davis embodies the fearsome real-life figure of General Nanisca in this hard-hitting blend of action and historical truth, set in 1823.

Nanisca is the leader of the army of the West African Kingdom of Dahomey. She defends Dahomey’s borders with an iron fist, but the encroaching influence of outside colonial powers forces Nanisca into a difficult position. At the same time, Dahomey’s King Ghezo (John Boyega) is preparing for an all-out war with his kingdom’s rival, the Oyo Empire.

Davis and her co-stars, including No Time To Die’s Lashana Lynch, limber up and get stuck into the film’s impressive stuntwork, giving us a vivid sense of the full-throttle Dahomey fighting force. With its proudly feminist spirit and stirring set-pieces marshalled by director Gina Prince-Bythewood, this isn’t to be missed.

Amsterdam

Available 7 October 2022

Chaotic and mercurial director David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook; American Hustle) whips up another carnivalesque frenzy as he intermingles quirky comedy with purported historical fact.

Star-studded doesn’t even begin to describe the absurdly stacked cast. Christian Bale, Margot Robbie and John David Washington lead as three friends, all veterans of the Great War, who are separated and then reunited years later in America. They then become suspects in a chaotic murder investigation that points to the highest levels of government.

Taylor Swift, Anya Taylor-Joy, Rami Malek, Robert De Niro and Chris Rock are just some of the big names filling out the rest of the ensemble.

The Lost King

Available 7 October 2022

In the second of this month’s king-flavoured movie titles, we’ve got the delightful Sally Hawkins in a true story about a landmark historical find.

Hawkins plays amateur historian Philippa Langley who defies her snooty contemporaries to make an astonishing discovery: the final resting place of controversial British monarch Richard III.

Director Stephen Frears and writer Steve Coogan, collaborators on the Oscar-nominated Philomena, once again meld a pragmatic real-life underdog story with a sense of whimsical mischief.

Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile

Available 14 October 2022

Bernard Waber’s beloved children’s book series forms the basis of this whimsical family fantasy, which fuses live-action with CGI mayhem.

When the Primm family discovers singing crocodile Lyle hiding out in their new home, they’re astonished by the discovery. However, they soon have to protect their new-found amphibian friend from the machinations of their evil neighbour.

Pop sensation Shawn Mendes brings his tones to the role of Lyle while the live-action cast is filled out by the likes of Javier Bardem, Constance Wu and Scoot McNairy.

Halloween Ends

Available from 14 October 2022

The terrifying Halloween saga was successfully resurrected in 2018 by director David Gordon Green and writer Danny McBride. They junked the years of unnecessary sequels that had tarnished the memory of John Carpenter’s 1978 slasher masterpiece Halloween.

Instead, Green and McBride’s new Halloween movie picked up directly after the events of Carpenter’s original, acting as a mixture of sequel and reboot. This created a sense of emotional immediacy as we were reconnected with Jamie Lee Curtis’ tenacious yet traumatised survivor Laurie and her nemesis, the masked psycho Michael Myers.

Following 2021’s Halloween Kills, the trilogy is set to come to an end with the sure-to-be explosive showdown between Laurie and Michael. Who in the imperilled town of Haddonfield can possibly survive another assault by the rampaging killer? And will Laurie herself live to tell the tale?

Emily

Available from 14 October 2022

The extraordinary life story of Wuthering Heights author Emily Brontë forms the basis of this earthy period drama from first-time director Frances O’Connor.

Forget the familiar strains of Kate Bush. Brontë’s own life was peppered with enough turbulence and upset to fuel several novels.

The film examines, in intimate detail, Emily’s desire to emerge as a powerful feministic force, juxtaposing her mercurial personality with that of her sisters, Charlotte and Anne (both celebrated authors in their own right).

With its resplendent Yorkshire scenery and emphasis on a distinguished writer’s inner torment, this is must-see cinema for all period drama fans.

See Emily first during the Emily Unlimited screening on October 11.

The Banshees of Inisherin

Available from 21 October 2022

It’s been a long time coming, but the In Bruges squad is back together for another brilliantly dark and scabrous comedy.

Writer/director Martin McDonagh, plus stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, once again master the art of the unrepeatably filthy yet rib-tickling line, bringing us the story of a once rock-solid friendship gone sour.

When Farrell’s character, Irish islander Padraic, discovers that his BFF Colm (Gleeson) no longer wants to talk to him, it sets in motion a series of events as amusing as they are shocking. 

Barry Keoghan and Kerry Condon round out the excellent cast in a movie that depicts a warring conflict between obtuseness and apathy.

Black Adam

Available from 21 October 2022

He’s practically invincible in all of his movies, but it’s surprising to note that Dwayne Johnson has never played an actual superhero… until now.

Johnson makes his live-action DC debut as the titular Black Adam, an all-powerful, vengeful demi-god whose abilities must be harnessed by the Justice Society of America.

Consumed with rage over the elimination of his family, Black Adam couldn’t care less what happens to any human who gets in his way. However, a threat even more dangerous than he is lurks on the horizon, prompting the likes of Hawkman (Aldis Hodge) and Doctor Fate (Pierce Brosnan) to get Adam to step over from the dark side.

The character of Black Adam is famous from DC Comics as the long-time nemesis of the heroic Shazam. Given that the Shazam sequel, Fury of the Gods, is released at the start of 2023, could the Black Adam movie be the first step towards the long-awaited big-screen battle?

Bros

Available from 28 October 2022

The combined force of producer Judd Apatow and stand-up sensation Billy Eichner results in a rude and raucous yet progressive and sweet-natured comedy.

Directed by Nicholas Stoller, who helmed the Apatow hit Forgetting Sarah Marshall, the movie casts Eichner (who also writes the screenplay) as proudly gay yet inwardly self-doubting Manhattan museum curator Bobby.

Conflicted about his status as a gay man in the modern world, Bobby finds a new lease of life when he begins a relationship with Aaron (Luke Macfarlane). The road towards navigating a successful relationship is marked by a refreshing amount of sexual frankness and contemporary, inclusive social commentary.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets 20th anniversary re-release

Nostalgics rejoice in this special anniversary re-release of the second Harry Potter movie. Following the runaway success of 2001’s The Philosopher’s Stone, The Chamber of Secrets faced a mammoth task in expanding the story and placing more weight upon the shoulders of the film’s young stars.

Upon his return to Hogwarts, young wizard Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), now in his second year, must confront the mystery of the Chamber of Secrets. When the heir of Salazar Slytherin opens said chamber, the Hogwarts students find themselves in grave danger, prompting Harry, Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson) to get to the heart of the mystery.

Returning director Chris Columbus marshals all the visual effects wizardry and A-list appearances that he can muster, reinstating fan favourites including Snape (the late Alan Rickman) and McGonagall (Maggie Smith). There’s also room for Kenneth Branagh’s bumbling new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, Gilderoy Lockhart and the first appearance of the calculating Lucius Malfoy (Jason Isaacs).
