The film is directed by Academy Award–winner Chloé Zhao, who directed 2020’s Nomadland.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

With all the delays and changes in the movie world, it would’ve been easy to forget that a new Ghostbusters film is releasing this November.

The film follows a single mom and two kids who arrive in a small town and begin to discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters, along with the secret legacy that their grandfather left behind. Ghostbusters: Afterlife stars Paul Rudd, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, Carrie Coon, Sigourney Weaver, and a whole cast of other exciting talents.

Release date: 19 November 2021

South African director Neill Blomkamp has always left an impression with his films, such as District 9 and Elysium, and his latest endeavour takes more of a horror approach, but keeps his beloved trippy sci-fi elements front and centre. Titled Demonic, the movie’s follows a young woman who is trying to heal her mother using a new neural-link technology, but in doing so, unleashes terrifying demons when supernatural forces. Carly Pope, Chris William Martin, and Nathalie Boltt star in the film. Blomkamp has shown his love for horror with the web film Zygote, which we highly recommend giving a watch if you’re a monster fan.

Last Night in Soho

Directed by Edgar Wright (Baby Driver, Hot Fuzz), Last Night in Soho is a stylish psychological thriller that follows an aspiring fashion designer who is mysteriously able to enter the 1960s, where she encounters a dazzling wannabe singer. However, the glamour is not all it appears to be, and the dreams of the past start to crack and splinter into something far darker. The Queen’s Gambit‘s Anya Taylor‑Joy stars in the film, alongside Thomasin McKenzie and Jack Smith.

My Son

Release date: 26 November 2021

Starring James McAvoy, My Son is an incredibly interesting film due to the fact that McAvoy was not given the script and had no idea how the story was going to evolve, resulting in some truly organic reactions and a natural performance from the actor. The film follows Scottish father Edmond Murray who is trying to find his seven-year-old son who has been kidnapped.
