Grab The Popcorn… Here Are Our Top Cinema Releases This Spring

by Joshua Thompson

Our lives over the past year have felt like a very long-winded movie, with March 2020 being the opening scene of what would be end up being a year of lockdowns and the feeling that the surrealness of it all could’ve only happened in a film – we know ours wouldn’t be nominated for an Oscar any time soon.

After what feels like forever, the cinemas are finally reopening after almost eight excruciatingly long months of being closed and we couldn’t be more excited to finally see a movie on the big screen again (with at least one of every snack and a large Ice Blast!)

Luckily for you, we’ve compiled a mini list of the top movies we’ll be going to see so you don’t have to worry. Grab the popcorn and catch us there! 🍿

Mortal Kombat

One of the most talked about movies of the year so far. Mortal Kombat (if it needs any explanation at all) started as the ultimate fighting game back in the 90s and has so far grown to include a total of 18 games and 2 movies to date. 29 years after the first movie was released, we’re now getting a brand-new instalment. It’s Earth vs Outworld in another battle for the universe and we can’t wait.
You can currently pay to watch on Youtube, but Mortal Kombat is likely to be in cinemas on the same day we will be, 17th May.

Sound of Metal

We’ve been looking forward to this one for what feels like ages. This is a fictional story about a heavy-metal drummer whose life is thrown into freefall when he begins to lose his hearing and won 2 Oscar’s at this year’s award show. 
Sound of Metal is already available to stream on Prime but it’s just not the same without the big screen. Catch it just as the cinemas open on 17th May.

Spiral: From the Book of Saw

It’s bizarre to think that the original Saw came out almost 17 years ago (feel old yet?) 
After ending in 2010, the Saw franchise was resurrected in 2017 with the release of Jigsaw and now, the eighth instalment is due to hit cinemas on 17th May.
We’re just wondering if the iconic tricycle is going to make an appearance and what games are going to be played…

Those Who Wish Me Dead

Possibly THE survival movie of 2021. Angelina Jolie plays Hannah – a smokejumper, who encounters Connor – a bloodied child on the run, but it’s not long before things take a dramatic turn with the likes of Nicholas Hoult (Tony from Skins), Aidan Gillen (Littlefinger from Game of Thrones) and a whole lot of wildfire.
Those Who Wish Me Dead is also due to be in cinemas for reopening day on 17th May.

Undergods

Another one ready to watch once we’re able to go to the cinema on 17th May. Undergods is a fantasy anthology film set in a dystopian Europe with a number of different characters each having their own ill-fated stories to live out. We’re getting a strong 80s vibe with this one! 

The United Way

The documentary film we’ve all been waiting for. The United Way is the story of Manchester United Football Club, co-written by King Eric (Cantona) and featuring insight from greats including David Beckham, Peter Schmeichel and Teddy Sheringham, among others. You definitely don’t want to miss this one!
You can pay to stream on YouTube but if you’re like us and would rather watch on the big screen, The United Way will likely hit cinemas on 21st May.

The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It

Horror fans to the front for this one! Ed and Lorraine Warren are back to uncover the truth behind a murderer’s claim of demonic possession – sounds scary enough for us!
The 3rd instalment in the Conjuring universe (or 8th if you include the spin-offs) is expected to hit the screens on 28th May

Vanquish

Morgan Freeman… Need we say more? 
Vanquish is a twisted crime film about a single mother and a retired cop starring Morgan Freeman and Ruby Rose which is due to hit cinemas on 28th May. We’ll definitely be keeping this one on our list to watch!
