September movie releases in Cineworld: Three Thousand Years of Longing, Don't Worry Darling and more

Summer may be coming to an end, but there's no need to get downhearted as there are some cracking movies showing at Cineworld cinemas in September. It's 40 years since Steven Spielberg's classic family adventure E.T. The Extra Terrestrial was released, and to celebrate this anniversary, the movie is being shown on Cineworld's massive IMAX screens (from September 2nd), giving you the chance to laugh, cry and whoop all over again.

Idris Elba follows up his star turn in Beast (currently showing at Cineworld) with another major role, this time as a storytelling Djinn in George Miller's Three Thousand Years of Longing (from September 2nd). Tom George's star-studded whodunnit See How They Run will have you guessing when it arrives on September 9th. And starting on the same day are Halina Reijn's critically acclaimed horror Bodies Bodies Bodies, and, for kids, the swashbuckling sequel-of-a-sequel Tad the Lost Explorer and the Curse of the Mummy

George Clooney reunites with Julia Roberts for romantic-comedy Ticket to Paradise (from September 16th). And the ubiquitous Harry Styles gets another chance to show off his acting chops, this time opposite Florence Pugh in Olivia Wilde's long-awaited suspense thriller Don't Worry Darling (from September 23rd). 

All in all, it promises to be an exciting month at Cineworld!

Bodies Bodies Bodies

Nothing gets the adrenaline going like a good horror film, and if the early reviews are anything to go by, Bodies Bodies Bodies looks like being a very good one.

When they embark on a game of murder in the dark, things take a rather sinister turn. Full of shocks and dark comedy moments, Bodies Bodies Bodies is sure to be a visceral experience.

Ticket to Paradise

(released September 16th)




Wish you were still on holiday? Well, new rom-com Ticket to Paradise could be the next best thing, transporting you to the sunny island of Bali. There, you'll follow the exploits of an estranged couple (George Clooney and Julia Roberts) as they attempt – at times hilariously – to stop their daughter from marrying the wrong guy and making the same mistake they did 25 years earlier. Having appeared in several films together, Clooney and Roberts' chemistry is as spellbinding as the Indonesian scenery. But will their plan succeed?
