Attention all film buffs! We’ve compiled a list of the upcoming films we feel shouldn’t fly under your radar.


24th April 2020

“Successful author Veronica finds herself trapped in a horrifying reality and must uncover the mind-bending mystery before it’s too late.” – IMDB

Celebrated R&B artist turned actress Janelle Monáe stars in this Mystery/Horror from the producer of Jordan Peele’s 2017 smash hit ‘Get Out’. Based on what we’ve seen so far in the trailer, along with directors Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz’s politically driven past projects – not to mention the name “Antebellum” referring to the American Civil War era – we can most likely expect a social thriller in the style of Get Out.

Black Widow

1st May 2020

“A film about Natasha Romanoff in her quests between the films Civil War and Infinity War.” – IMDB

Starring Scarlett Johansson, Rachel Weisz, Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Ray Winstone, and O.T. Fagbenle, the potential is there for an enjoyable watch. But what makes this a film we don’t want to miss? The opportunity to see how Black Widow’s first solo outing manages to play into this new phase of the MCU while taking place in the past, and – in theory – tying up any loose ends and sending off the character for good.

Wonder Woman 1984

5th June 2020

“A sequel to the 2017 superhero film ‘Wonder Woman.’ Gal Gadot is back to save the world, and she’s bringing Kristen Wiig and Pedro Pascal along for the ride.” – IMDB

Critically speaking, the DC Extended Universe had a rocky start. In fact, many would argue that it’s still struggling to find its footing with the troubled release of ‘Birds of Prey’. But thrown into the mix were the well received ‘Shazam!’ and ‘Wonder Woman’ origin films – the latter of which actually became the highest grossing superhero origin film of all time, surpassing 2002’s Spider-Man. Getting this next one right could therefore pave the way for the future of the DCEU.

Last Night in Soho

Expected September 18th 2020

“A young girl, passionate about fashion design, is mysteriously able to enter the 1960s where she encounters her idol, a dazzling wannabe singer. But 1960s London is not what it seems, and time seems to fall apart with shady consequences.” – IMDB

What do Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Attack the Block, and Baby Driver all have in common, apart from being visceral, hilarious films? Director Edgar Wright, of course. So with Wright at the helm of this upcoming mystery/thriller, do we really need to explain why you need to give Last Night in Soho a chance? We don’t think so.
