With awards season underway, anticipation over the coming year’s film releases is heating up. And we can confirm you won’t want to miss a minute of the action.
Amongst this year’s offerings are the highly-anticipated Mary Queen of Scots starring Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan, Guy Ritchie’s re-telling of the classic 1992 Disney classic Aladdin, and Barry Jenkins latest venture, If Beale Street Could Talk, which has already been tipped for an Oscar nomination. If those don’t tickle your fancy then we're certain Tarantino’s Once Upon A Hollywood or Downton Abbey’s long-awaited cinematic debut will.
To put it simply, there’s never been a better excuse to grab a large glass of vino and book in for an evening (or ten) in front of the big screen.
