Trolls World Tour
Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake return in an all-star sequel to 2016’s musical smash hit. In an
adventure that will take them well beyond what they’ve known before, Poppy and Branch discover that they are but one of six different Troll tribes scattered over six different lands and devoted to six different kinds of music: Funk, Country, Techno, Classical, Pop and Rock, Their world is about to get a lot bigger and a whole lot louder.
Robert Downey Jr. takes on the magical role of the man who can grunt and squeak and squawk with the animals in this retelling of the classic tale. After losing his wife seven years earlier, the
eccentric Dr. John Dolittle, famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria’s England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals
for company. But when the young queen (Jessie Buckley) falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure, regaining his wit
and courage as he crosses old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures.
Sonic the Hedgehog
Bursting out of the video game world and onto the big screen at the speed of sound, the blue blur’s cinematic debut is a thrill-a-minute hit! Finding a new home on Earth, super-fast hedgehog Sonic settles into his new home – until he accidentally knocks out a power grid and attracts the attention of manic scientist Dr Robotnik (Jim Carrey – never knowingly underplayed). Can new friend Tom (James Marden) help him stop the evil genius’ plot for world domination?
Oscar®-winning director Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech) is at the helm of this visually… unique take on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s beloved and long-running musical, following a tribe of felines (the Jellicles) who undergo their annual ritual to decide which one will ascend to the Heaviside Layer and enjoy another life. Hidden beneath the startling effects is a furmidable cast including Idris Elba, Judi Dench, James Corden and Taylor Swift. It’s not going to be everybody’s cup of cream, but for those with a taste for the unusual it may well be the cat’s pyjamas.
Jane Austen’s beloved comedy about finding your equal and earning your happy ending, is reimagined in this delicious new film adaptation of Emma. Handsome, clever, and rich, Emma Woodhouse is a restless queen bee without rivals in her sleepy little town. In this glittering satire of social class and the pain of growing up, Emma must adventure through misguided matches and romantic missteps to find the love that has been there all along.
Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig directs this critically acclaimed adaptation of the timeless, and timely, Louisa May Alcott novel starring Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson and Florence Pugh. It’s the story of the March sisters – Jo, Meg, Amy and Beth – four young women each determined to live life on their own terms. Timothée Chalamet, Laura Dern and Meryl Streep round out an amazing supporting cast in a film that should be enjoyed by everyone.
