It’s been a long, long time since any of us have been to a cinema. After being in lockdown for a couple of months, fans really began to miss the big screen; it’s the perfect date, family day, or thing to do with friends.

However, after a long stretch of only watching movies at home, May 17th 2021 marks the day when cinemas are set to reopen their doors and let us back in; some of these films will be available on-demand only, but some will be released on the big screen!

Spiral: From the book of Saw

The ninth instalment in the popular Saw franchise is coming to cinemas this May.

When murders occur that bring back unwanted memories of the city’s past, police veteran Marcus Banks (Samuel L. Jackson) and detective Zeke (Chris Rock) decide to investigate; but we all know where this is bound to get them, right?

Zeke finds himself in the middle of a sinister game, reminiscent of a killer everyone once knew. Zeke must find a way out, or risk becoming just another body on the pile…

From director Darren Bousman, Spiral is set to reimagine the franchise while still remaining true to its roots; will the film hit the mark, or will it fall flat?

Spiral: From the book of Saw will be in cinemas on May 14th in the US, and May 21st in the UK.

The Secrets We Keep

In its UK premiere, The Secrets We Keep bring World War Two (WWII) back to life once more, but focuses on a revenge plot by a woman who claims to have been wronged by her neighbour.

Maja (Noomi Rapace), while trying to rebuild her new life in the suburbs with her husband, kidnaps the woman next door and holds her accountable for all the war crimes committed against her.

As Maja tries to take revenge on the woman who supposedly ruined her life, with her plans for vengeance go too far?

The Secrets We Keep will premiere in the UK as a Sky Original on May 14th.

Army of the Dead

Zack Snyder is really coming back in a phenomenal way this year; after the wild success regarding his version of Justice League, fans are following him wherever he goes, this time landing in Las Vegas.

Starring Dave Bautista in the titular role of Scott Ward, a group of mercenaries learn about a heist that could set them up for life. The problem? The bank is in the quarantine zone in Las Vegas, the location of a contained zombie outbreak.

Snyder will no doubt deliver a fantastic action-packed, gritty movie, and with recently-released photos getting fans excited, it seems that this flick won’t be ‘just another zombie movie’.

Army of the Dead will be released onto Netflix on May 21st!


From Disney comes a villain story we’ve been dying to see.

Emma Stone plays the titular baddie Cruella in her origin story from ordinary girl to a dog-hating anti-hero. Everyone knows the story of 101 Dalmatians, but do we really know Cruella at her best (or worst)?

Estella was her name before she became Cruella, and all she wants is to become a fashion designer; but it seems that isn’t in her cards. So when she gets a chance to do something worthwhile with her life, will she want to pay the price?

Cruella will be in cinemas in both the US and the UK on May 28th.

A Quiet Place: Part II

The sequel to the 2018 thriller A Quiet Place places Evelyn (Emily Blunt) and her family back into the centre of danger.

After the loss of her husband, Evelyn must lead her children to safety after having to leave their farmland. With two kids and a new baby, will Evelyn manage to keep it together?

Compelled to wonder into the unknown, the Abbott family realise that there are more dangers than they realised. The creatures that hunt by sound are not the only things that threaten their lives…

A Quiet Place: Part II will be in cinemas everywhere on May 28th.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

Another popular horror franchise, The Conjuring has more tricks up its sleeves it seems…

Ed Warren (Patrick Wilson) and his wife Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) have been through hell and back together, and have been haunted by evil for years. Now, they aim to help a man who claims he only killed due to demonic possession…

Passed on from a young child, the spirit controlling this man may be the most harrowing thing the Warrens have faced, and convincing people that the Devil is real may just be their last hope…

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It will be in UK cinemas on May 28th, and US screens in June.
