Sometimes there’s nothing better than a good trip to the cinema. Settling into your comfy seat, popcorn in hand, a few Maltesers thrown in and your drink of choice in the holder, it’s rare we have a moment to step away from distractions for a whole two hours. You can head with friends or solo and still enjoy the experience when the audience reacts collectively to the plot twist no one saw coming (did anyone experience Spiderman: No Way Home in cinemas? Iconic).

Especially when awards season comes around, it’s nice to be able to share your own opinions on the films, it makes you feel like a film critic.

This year we have a lot of great film releases on the way which makes us even more excited to head to the silver screen.

We have rounded up a few of the highly anticipated releases coming in the next few months that can help you get excited about a movie date too!



Release date: April 5th, 2023

This sports-themed movie is directed by Ben Affleck, and of course, he also co-stars too.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie

Release date: April 7th, 2023

Everyone has played a game on a Nintendo at least once before, so now it’s time to not let the frustration get the better of you, and sit back and relax for a new Mario adventure.

Fast X is the tenth film in the “Fast and Furious” saga, but this is only part one.
