2. Killers of the Flower Moon

Martin Scorsese is said to have delivered another masterpiece with this mammoth, four-hour-long adaptation of David Grann's riveting novel. The true story of the Osage Sioux Nation tragedy comes to the screen in all its horrific glory with an outstanding cast including Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro and Lily Gladstone.

3. The Marvels

The latest chapter in Phase Five of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) sees Brie Larson's super-powered Captain Marvel swapping bodies with the effervescent Avenger-in-the-making Ms. Marvel (Iman Vellani). Candyman's Nia DaCosta directs.

4. The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

Discover the origin story of Panem's ruthless and dictatorial President Snow in the prequel to the Hunger Games franchise. Tom Blyth plays the young Coriolanus Snow in a movie that dramatises the dark beginnings of the Hunger Games contest. Rachel Zegler, Octavia Spencer and Peter Dinklage co-star.

5. Wonka

Dune star Timotheé Chalamet transports us into a world of pure imagination in this Willy Wonka prequel movie. We'll discover the origins of the beloved Roald Dahl character in this sure-to-be-magical movie from Paddington director Paul King.

6. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

The final instalment of the DC Universe, prior to its reboot at the hands of creative chief James Gunn, reunites us with Jason Momoa's titular hero. Many familiar faces return including Amber Heard's Mera and Patrick Wilson's Orm.


7. Dune: Part Two

Denis Villeneuve's staggering two-part adaptation of Frank Herbert's classic novel reaches its dramatic conclusion. Timotheé Chalamet's tenacious Paul Atreides must reckon with the villainous Harkonnens as the likes of Austin Butler, Florence Pugh and Christopher Walken join the teeming ensemble.

8. Deadpool 3

If you thought Hugh Jackman's Wolverine was done after the tragic events of 2017's Logan, think again. The adamantium superhero now pairs with Ryan Gosling's mouthy Deadpool in a movie that will no doubt riff on the two stars' bickering social media rivalry.


9. Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part Two

Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt continues his search for the all-powerful A.I. known as the entity in the sequel to the breathless Dead Reckoning - Part One.
