What we know

The sequel to 2008’s found footage flick Cloverfield, this stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as a woman trapped in a bunker owned by John Goodman. But is everything as it seems?

What the critics say

  • “10 Cloverfield Lane does a spectacular job of capturing nightmare logic. You sense danger even if you can’t explain it.” - The Guardian
  • “By the end of this tense and unexpectedly human-scaled movie, all that high-concept disaster porn feels like even more of a distant memory.” - Variety

High Rise

What we know

Cult director Ben Wheatley adapts a JG Ballard novel about the very rich occupants of a high-rise block in the future.

What the critics say

  • “Don’t expect a thriller in the seat-edge sense, but you will be thrilled — and repulsed — by this bold, faithful adaptation of Ballard’s ever-prescient picture of First World strife.” - Empire
  • “Wheatley has made High-Rise his story, instead of Ballard’s. That’s fine – but, unfortunately, it’s a less interesting take.” - The Guardian

What’s it rated?

Sing Street

What we know

Irish film from John Carney (director of Once) about a young teen and his band – a coming of age story set in Dublin, starring a host of Irish actors.

What the critics say

  • Even as the film becomes more stylized and fantastical during its musical passages, we’re constantly reminded that there’s a far more complicated, melancholy world out there.” - Vulture 
  • “Undeniably, Sing Street draws upon a healthy amount of cliché and emotional manipulation, but the execution is so strong, and so engaging that all of that ceases to matter.” – The Upcoming
