When an unexpected sandstorm transports Captain Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her unit (TI Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta) to a new world, the soldiers are shocked to discover that this hostile and unknown environment is home to enormous and terrifying monsters immune to their firepower. In their desperate battle for survival, the unit encounters the mysterious Hunter (Tony Jaa), whose unique skills allow him to stay one step ahead of the powerful creatures. As Artemis and Hunter slowly build trust, she discovers that he is part of a team led by the Admiral (Ron Perlman). Facing a danger so great it could threaten to destroy their world, the brave warriors combine their unique abilities to band together for the ultimate showdown.

In Cinemas NOVEMBER 26

Meeting your girlfriend’s family for the first time can be tough. Planning to propose at her family’s annual Christmas dinner – until you realize that they don’t even know she’s gay – is even harder. When Abby (Kristen Stewart) learns that Harper (Mackenzie Davis) has kept their relationship a secret from her family, she begins to question the girlfriend she thought she knew. Happiest Season is a holiday romantic comedy that hilariously captures the range of emotions tied to wanting your family’s acceptance, being true to yourself, and trying not to ruin Christmas.

Thanks to Sony Pictures Australia

REVIEW:

Nerida:

‘Happiest Season’ has all the makings of a holiday classic with a twist that sets it apart from the average Christmas movie. Stewart shines in her awkwardly sexy role (watch simply for the outfits she dons throughout the flick). Her & Davis make an adorably realistic lesbian couple which is something greatly lacking in Hollywood. Credit to DuVall for handling heavy conversations about homophobia and family dynamics without taking too much away from the overall warmth and fluffiness needed in a holiday rom-com. A full star is reserved solely for Dan Levy & Aubrey Plaza simply for doing what they do always: shine in the few scenes they are featured in & make us fall in love with their characters onscreen & fall even deeper in love with them offscreen. No reason to pass on ‘Happiest Season’!

In 1970, the Miss World competition took place in London, hosted by US comedy legend, Bob Hope. At the time, Miss World was the most-watched TV show on the planet with over 100 million viewers. Claiming that beauty competitions demeaned women, the newly formed Women’s Liberation Movement achieved overnight fame by invading the stage and disrupting the live broadcast of the competition. Not only that, when the show resumed, the result caused uproar: the winner was not the Swedish favourite but Miss Grenada, the first black woman to be crowned Miss World. In a matter of hours, a global audience had witnessed the patriarchy driven from the stage and the Western ideal of beauty turned on its head. With an all-star cast including Keira Knightley, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Rhys Ifans and Greg Kinnear. In Cinemas November 26

Summerland

Screening as part of the British Film Festival 2020 showing exclusively at Palace Cinemas : 10-29 November

A touching war drama about the endurance of love in trying times, Gemma Arterton stars in Summerland, a tale of compassion and womanhood.

Alice (Gemma Arterton, Vita and Virginia BFF18) is a reclusive writer, resigned to a solitary life on the seaside cliffs of Southern England while World War II rages across the channel. A workaholic who researches the natural explanations for mythical phenomena, Alice’s life is upended one day when she opens her front door and is forced to take in a young London Blitz evacuee named Frank. Despite initially resolving to get rid of the boy, it’s not long before Alice realises that they have more in common in their pasts than she had assumed. Inevitably a bond grows between the pair and Frank rekindles long suppressed feelings of affection in Alice.

Alternating between the 1970s, 1940s and 1920s, andfeaturing Gugu Mbatha-Raw, two times Oscar nominee Sir Tom Courtenay and Penelope Wilton as the older Alice, gorgeously shot Summerland is a sentimental tale from debut director Jessica Swale which delivers an uplifting story about the power of love and friendship.

REVIEW:

Nerida

This Directorial debut by Jessica Swale offers the viewer some main takeaways-Very strong acting from lead Gemma Arterton. A real powerhouse of an actor that one can see welcoming an Oscar into her home sometime in the next coming years. Arterton manages to captivate the character Alice smoothly for the entire length of the film not once losing the viewers interest to learn more about what makes her tick. Also, Swale offers a cast of adults and children that work together very well with chemistry and comedic timing. Lucas Bond and Dixie Egerickx have a strong future in film and stage ahead of them for sure! Plus, a production team that makes a visual impact using set designs, scenery and colours to hold the greatest cinephiles attention to even the smallest of details like the red push pins Alice uses on her boards.

The story is one of magic, family, love and loss with possibility threading it all together. Where it missed being a 10 out of 10 for me was the relationship aspect with Gugu Mbatha-Raw for I would have like to have seen her acting abilities a bit heightened instead of simply radiating beauty. At the climax of the film, her acting tended to be a bit rehearsed and the lines flowed without expression yet Arterton surely makes up for anything that might be out of sorts. The cinematography is beautiful. I highly recommend and am just being picky yet I really respect this film and am so glad it was made. An enjoyable movie to escape to, to enjoy the happy endings of storytelling.
