1. Dune: Part Two (showing in widescreen, IMAX, 4DX, ScreenX and Superscreen)

The battle for Arrakis begins in Denis Villeneuve's stupendous and sweeping summation of his big-screen Dune saga. Expect a sense of scale akin to that of Lord of the Rings as Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) grapples with his tortured destiny and vows to bring the treacherous House Harkonnen to its knees with the help of the Fremen.

Dune: Part Two is set to expand on the mythology of Dune with more sandworm action, more mysterious and eye-widening prophesising, and the introduction of several important new characters. This includes Florence Pugh's Princess Irulan, Christopher Walken's Emperor Shaddam IV and Austin Butler's fierce Harkonnen warrior Feyd-Rautha.


2. Wicked Little Letters

A series of poison pen letters serve to unravel an uptight English community in this scabrously foul-mouthed black comedy. In a 1920s seaside town, Olivia Colman's prim religious conservative is scandalised by the discovery of salacious letters. She immediately pins the blame on Jessie Buckley's outspoken Irish immigrant mother, but this strategy soon backfires with jaw-dropping results for everyone involved.


3. Drive-Away Dolls

Ethan Coen, one half of the acclaimed Coen brothers duo, goes solo for this quirky and darkly comic road trip movie. 

This comedy caper follows Jamie, an uninhibited free spirit bemoaning yet another breakup with a girlfriend, and her demure friend Marian who desperately needs to loosen up. In search of a fresh start, the two embark on an impromptu road trip to Tallahassee, but things quickly go awry when they cross paths with a group of inept criminals along the way.

Among the excellent cast is Geraldine Viswanathan (Blockers), Margaret Qualley (Poor Things), Matt Damon (Oppenheimer), Colman Domingo (Rustin) and Pedro Pascal (The Last Of Us).


4. Bob Marley: One Love

Rising British star Kinglsey Ben-Adir transforms into reggae icon Bob Marley for this sweeping look at the path-breaking musician's life. From Marley's early life in Jamaica through to his final years in London, One Love promises to embody all the solidarity and positivity inherent in Marley's genre-redefining music. 


5. Migration (showing in widescreen, 4DX and Superscreen)

Prepare for the first family movie event of the season, and indeed the first-ever animated movie to play in 270-degree ScreenX. Migration is the endearing and uplifting story of a family of ducks whose journey south for the winter takes several unexpected and exciting turns. Elizabeth Banks, Awkwafina and Danny DeVito are among the big voice names in the latest offering from Minions creators Illumination.
