Mother!

After taking on one of the most world’s iconic yarns with his 2014 epic Noah, this time Requiem For A Dream/Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky does something much more intimate.

Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem star as a struggling couple, whose relationship is tested to breaking point when two uninvited guests arrive at their home and ask to lodge with them.

Domhnall Gleeson and Margot Robbie star in this tender re-telling of the life of A.A.Milne, creator of the hugely successful children's series Winnie The Pooh, and his interactions with his young son Christopher Robin, which would go on to inspire Milne’s beloved stories.

Gleeson plays Milne, Robbie plays Daphne de Sélincourt, A. A. Milne’s wife, while there are also roles for Kelly Macdonald, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Alex Lawther.

The film has been directed by My Week With Marilyn's Simon Curtis and has a script from Simon Vaughan and 24 Hour Party People scribe Frank Cottrell-Boyce.

 

 

IT

(In Cinemas September 8th)

 

A generation of children have grown up struggling with flashbacks from Tim Curry’s take on Stephen King’s terrifying clown Pennywise, and now their offspring will get the chance to have the same scarring experience with this new take on the story.

The film is based on King's 1986 novel, which was originally adapted into a two-part television film in 1990, starring Curry in the iconic titular role. It centred around a group of children who must face off against a force that takes on its victims' greatest fears, horrifically personified by Pennywise the Clown.

The new movie stars Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise with Jaeden Lieberher, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Nicholas Hamilton in supporting roles.

The film has been directed by Andrés Muschietti, director of Mama, who stepped in to take over from True Detective creator Cary Fukunaga, who left after disagreements with Warner Brothers. He still is a credited writer on the movie along with Chase Palmer and Gary Dauberman.

 

 

Flatliners

(In Cinemas September 29th)

Happy Valley’s James Norton, Juno leading lady Ellen Page and The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev unite for this new thriller, which acts as both a reboot and a sequel to the 1990 original, which starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts and Kevin Bacon as part of a gang of medical students who attempt to find out what lies beyond death by conducting clandestine experiments that produce near-death experiences.

In the new movie we meet a new gang of students with similar ideas, but with far more drastic results.

Starring alongside Page, Dobrev and Norton are Diego Luna, Kiersey Clemons, and a returning Sutherland.

Niels Arden Oplev, best known for his work on Mr. Robot, directs, working from a script from Source Code writer Ben Ripley.

The story takes place in London in 1880, where a series of murders has shaken the community to the point where people believe that only a legendary creature from dark times – the mythical so-called Golem – must be responsible. To solve the mystery Nighy's Inspector John Kildare is called in.

 

 

Wind River

(In Cinemas September 8th)

 

Elizabeth Olsen and Jeremy Renner wrap up warm for this murder mystery, which is set in the frozen climes of rural Wyoming.

Renner stars as Cory Lambert, a low-level US Fish and Wildlife Service agent who discovers a body in the rugged wilderness of the Wind River Indian Reservation.

Needing assistance, the FBI sends in Olsen’s rookie agent Jane Banner, but she is unprepared for the difficulties created by the oppressive weather and isolation of the Wyoming winter. When she employs Cory as a tracker, the two venture deep into a world ravaged by violence and the elements.

Taylor Sheridan, writer of Sicario and Hell or High Water, directs and provides the script for this movie.

Now grief-stricken, Rapp is paired with Cold War veteran Stan Hurley to learn how to thwart terrorist operations and hunt the perpetrators.

Together they investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on military and civilian targets and discover a pattern in the violence that leads them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent to stop a mysterious operative, nicknamed "Ghost", intent on starting a world war in the Middle East.
