Gran Turismo (Monday August 7 – two days before general release)

Directed by Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium), Gran Turismo is inspired by the real-life story of Jann Mardenborough (Archie Madekwe), a teenage who, having conquered the Gran Turismo videogame, attempted to repeat his success on an actual racetrack. Loaded with high-octane thrills, and featuring a talented cast that also includes Orlando Bloom and Spice Girl Geri Halliwell, Gran Turismo is a treat for racing fans and movie buffs alike. 



The Blackening (Tuesday August 15 – eight days before general release)

If you enjoy a good slasher movie, then you’ll love Tim Story’s The Blackening. The film centres around a group of black people who take a break in a secluded cottage to celebrate Juneteenth. When they discover a mysterious board game in the basement, all hell breaks loose and they soon find themselves fighting for their lives. Gory, clever and funny in equal measures, The Blackening is a must-see for fans of the horror genre. 



Theater Camp (Tuesday August 22 – three days before general release)

The directorial debut of Molly Gordon and Nick Lieberman, Theater Camp is a comedy drama focusing on a thespian summer school in upstate New York. When the camp’s leader succumbs to illness, her slacker son is forced to take the reins. With showtime approaching fast, can he come up with a solution that’ll save the group from financial ruin? Hilarious and touching, Theater Camp is destined to be one of the feelgood hits of the summer.   



Past Lives (Monday August 28 – ten days before general release)

Summer is the perfect time for romance, and Past Lives has it in spades. Another directorial debut (this time from Celine Song), the movie tells the story of two childhood friends from South Korea who re-evaluate their relationship following a chance reunion. A hit at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Past Lives has gone on to receive universal acclaim – and we reckon you’ll fall in love with it, too.
