Creed II

What we know

In the sequel to Creed, Adonis Creed faces off Viktor Drago (son of Ivan), expertly guided once again by Rocky Balboa himself. This Rocky spinoff is getting solid reviews.

What the critics say

  • “Perhaps most commendable thing about Creed II is its handling of Ivan Drago as Rocky’s polar opposite. He’s a man who can’t let go of his toxic pride, living vicariously through his son, whereas Rocky encourages Adonis to be his own man – forget vengeance.” – Little White Lies
  • “Jordan’s Adonis proves to be far more vulnerable as his battle this time is less against the ghost of his father and more against himself and his continued desire to create his own legacy.” – IGN

Ralph Breaks The Internet

What we know

In this, the sequel to Wreck-It Ralph, the sweet but scary looking Ralph (voiced by John C Reilly) and pal  (Sarah Silverman) venture out of their games and into the internet. But their friendship is tested by the new world. Sweet and funny – and not just for kids.

What the critics say

  • “Virtually everything about Ralph Breaks The Internet is better, more entertaining, and more inspired than its predecessor, functioning as both a sequel and a new draft of the franchise’s very concept.” – Den of Geek 
  • “Self-aware, cameo-filled and at its core a sweet story about friendship, Ralph Breaks the Internet is a fantastic sequel to 2012′s Wreck-It Ralph that makes the most of its world wide web setting without being beholden to it.” – CNet

Three Identical Strangers

What we know

Aged 19, three young men in New York discover they are triplets. And then things get even weirder. Our advice – don’t read the reviews for fear of spoilers. (We’ll have a spoiler-free interview with director Tim Wardle on TheJournal.ie this Sunday night.)

What the critics say

  • “Tim Wardle’s compelling documentary spotlights the notorious case of three men who grew up not knowing their siblings existed.” – The Guardian
  • “Despite their differences in upbringing, the twins had remarkably similar mannerisms, smoked the same cigarette brand, had the same taste in women, and so on.” – RogerEbert.com
