Something For Everyone

    Author Zoe Aresti

This October is packed full of varied films, so much so it was difficult to highlight just four of them! But we’ve managed to, and they are potentially some of the best of 2021. There are new films from some of the world’s best filmmakers, including Edgar Wright, Wes Anderson and Denis Villeneuve, comprising animated comedy, striking period horror, and stunning sci-fi spectacle. There’s also a sequel to The Boss Baby. What more could you want from cinema?

Target audience: ABC1 Men
When it comes to smart cinema, there are few directors on a par with Denis Villeneuve. With Arrival and Blade Runner 2049, he proved himself a master of sci-fi, and this adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel will make it a hat-trick. Timothee Chalamet stars as the son of a noble family, seeking the most powerful element in the galaxy.

The French Dispatch
Target audience: ABC1 Adults
Wes Anderson is one of the most distinctive filmmakers in the world, and his latest is a love letter to journalists, set in the offices of an American newspaper operating out of France, in a city that brings to life a collection of stories published in The French Dispatch Magazine. As usual, the cast is jam-packed with Hollywood royalty, and the film has already premiered at the Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews.

The Boss Baby 2: Family Business
Target audience: Families
The Boss Baby was a huge hit in the UK, and Alec Baldwin returns as the boss who looks like a baby, and this time he’s joined by Tina...another boss baby. Tina has a cutting-edge approach to business and is about to bring the Templeton brothers together again and inspire a new family venture. Like the first film, it will probably be utterly bonkers.

Last Night In Soho
Target audience: 16-34 Adults
Edgar Wright has been one of the foremost champions of cinema over the last year, and his latest is this mystery thriller in which a young girl (Thomasin Mckenzie), travels back in time to 1960s London and meets her idol; a stylish wannabe singer. But soon, time begins to fall apart with terrifying consequences. Like all of Wright’s films, this will dazzle on the big screen.
