August Bank Holiday movies to watch at Cineworld

The August Bank Holiday is nearly with us, so have you decided what you'll be watching at Cineworld?

From spine-tingling terrors to family-friendly adventures, we've got audiences of all ages covered. Scroll down to discover what's on.

 

1. NOPE (on release now)

"What's a bad miracle?" asks Daniel Kaluuya's character O.J. in NOPE. Well, we know what a good miracle is: being able to experience Jordan Peele's latest shocker on the biggest Cineworld screen imaginable.

The Get Out and Us filmmaker once again stakes his claim to bold, imaginative and original genre filmmaking. NOPE was captured with IMAX cameras, which injects Steven Spielberg-ian awe into Peele's usual canvas of satirical humour and savage shocks.

Kaluuya leads the cast as a Hollywood horse-wrangler who becomes caught up in something truly terrifying. We won't give away what it is. However, given the Oscar-winning Peele's background, you can expect something as unpredictable as it is thrillingly entertaining.

2. Bullet Train (on release now)

Brad Pitt goes full Liam Neeson in this all-action black-comedy from Deadpool 2 director David Leitch.

The Oscar-winning actor commits to his own stunts in his role as Lady Bird, a hapless assassin who is pitted against his professional rivals. Complicating the issue is the setting of the conflict: the high-tech, confined and claustrophobic Japanese bullet train.

Watching these irreverent characters go to work is as darkly amusing as it is physically bruising. Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Brian Tyree Henry, Joey King and Sandra Bullock are among the other big names in the cast.

3. Laal Singh Chaddha (on release now)

Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan charms in this update of the 1994 Tom Hanks classic Forrest Gump. Khan plays the eponymous Laal Sinh Chaddha, an innocent young man who comes of age amidst the extraordinary backdrop of contemporary Indian history.

Laal Singh Chaddha is on release now in both Hindi and Tamil presentations.


4. DC League of Super-Pets (on release now)

Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart bring their irresistible chemistry to this super-powered family adventure.

They voice Krypto and Ace, the loyal canine pets of Superman (John Krasinski) and Batman (Keanu Reeves). This latest movie from the creatives behind The LEGO Movie is bound to set tails wagging with its delightful contingent of animal characters, plus slyly knowing DC in-jokes.
