It was the most anticipated movie at the Cannes Film Festival with people lining up for five hours prior hoping to get seats to what Tarantino is promising as his second to last film EVER. Whatever mate, you’ll be crawling back when you realise you’ve run out of good reasons to film Margot Robbie’s feet.
Get ready for a certified Tarantino experience, with all the cinema navel gazing that implies. Taking place at the end of the golden age of movies, Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) struggle to get by in an industry that’s quickly changing around them. In the process, they meet Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) and get sucked into the grizzly world of the Manson murders. But will it play out like it did in real life? Or will it be Inglourious Basterds level fantasy? Expect a slow burn, a growing cast of top tier talent, and a sudden brutal, but glorious payoff that will make the whole thing worth it.

Angel Has Fallen
Gerard Butler is back to chucking Presidents around to save their lives in the third “Has Fallen” film. This time he’s been framed. How can a framed man protect the President? He can’t! It’s an inside job! He’s fighting the system itself. Big explosions. Very wow. Directed by Ric Roman Waugh (Snitch) and featuring Morgan Freeman as a much more believable President.

Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw
A cumbersome title can’t keep the octane out of this David Leitch (John Wick) film with all the ridiculous action you’ve come to expect from both the director and the franchise. Look out for people making the mistake of going to Samoa with helicopters and rockets and getting taken out by all of Dwayne Johnson’s cousins.

An increasingly unnerving film about a tiny Swedish village and a couple (Florence Pugh, Jack Reynor) who visit for midsommar festivities. Things are all Sound Of Music until they go all Wicker Man. Beautifully shot and deserving of the big screen. Written and directed by the upstart talent Ari Aster (Hereditary), this movie wants to boil you in your frayed nerves.
