The days are already getting shorter, a little colder, a little greyer… So it’s the perfect time for a trip to the cinema! To make your choice even easier, we are going to introduce 5 of the most anticipated new films each month. Here are our top choices for October film releases.
Bad Times at the El Royale
Set in the 1960s, Bad Times at the El Royale presents an aesthetic setting as colourful as the characters who find themselves trapped in the titular hotel with a mysterious past. Seven strangers with dark pasts to hide, from a priest to a cult leader, soon find that their secrets are threatened to be revealed within the confines of the El Royale.
It’s October, time to get the pumpkins carved and get in the spooky Halloween spirit! This list wouldn’t be complete without the addition of the latest instalment in the classic slasher movie legacy – Halloween. Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role as Laurie Strode, who survived the killing spree of masked Michael Myers 40 years earlier and must now face up to him for one final showdown on the night of October 31st.
The latest superhero (or rather anti-hero) blockbuster, Venom tells the story of a symbiotic being that was previously introduced in the Spiderman world. Whilst investigating the possibly morally questionable experiments at Life Foundation, journalist Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) becomes merged with an alien and acquires superhuman strength as well as the ability to reek havoc against those who cross him. There have been many rumours about the details of the plot line. Spiderman cameo? You’ll have to watch to find out.
Ryan Gosling plays the first man to walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong, in this drama that looks at one of the most momental moments in modern history through the lens of a very personal and emotional experience. Katie Walsh for Nerdist wrote that, “In making the story intimate, closely-focused, and human-oriented, Chazelle [Damien Chazelle – director] reminds us in First Man just what an amazing accomplishment walking on the moon was.” That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.
The biopic has become a popular format in modern cinema. This time, it’s the turn of Queen and Freddie Mercury to have their story told on the big screen. Following Queen’s rise to fame as well as Mercury’s own personal struggles and ultimate battle with AIDS, original members Bryan May and Roger Taylor worked as producers to ensure that the story was portrayed as authentically as possible. A must-see for any Queen fan.
