Cruella

BBFC Rating 12a
Run Time: 135 minutes

Release Date: 28 May 2021

Academy Award winner Emma Stone ('La La Land') stars in Disney's Cruella, an all-new live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinema's most notorious - and notoriously fashionable - villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil. Cruella, which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets. One day, Estella's flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute, played by two-time Oscar winner Emma Thompson ('Howards End,' 'Sense & Sensibility'). But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella. Disney's 'Cruella' is directed by Craig Gillespie ('I Tonya') and produced by Andrew Gunn ('Freaky Friday'), Marc Platt ('Mary Poppins Returns') and Kristin Burr ('Christopher Robin'), with Emma Stone and Michelle Wright ('Baby Driver') serving as executive producers. Two-time Oscar- winning costume designer Jenny Beavan ('Mad Max: Fury Road,' 'A Room with a View') creates the dazzling and imaginative costumes, which take on a life of their own. Cruella contains a sequence of flashing lights which might affect customers who are susceptible to photo-sensitive epilepsy.

This summer, there are no more rules as a sect of lawless marauders decides that the annual Purge does not end at daybreak and instead should go on and on in The Forever Purge. Vaulting from the record-shattering success of 2018's The First Purge, Blumhouse's infamous terror franchise hurtles into innovative new territory as an underground movement, no longer satisfied with one annual night of anarchy and murder, decide to "purify" the country once and for all and launch a class and race massacre along America's southern border. Mexican refugees Adela (Ana de la Reguera, Cowboys & Aliens) and her husband Juan (Tenoch Huerta, Days of Grace) have fled the drug cartels in their country and now live in Texas. Working as a ranch hand for the wealthy Tucker family, Juan impresses the Tucker patriarch, Caleb (Will Patton, Halloween). Unfortunately, that only fuels the jealous anger of Caleb's son, Dylan (Josh Lucas, Ford v Ferrari). On the morning after The Purge, a masked gang of killers attacks the Tucker family - including Dylan's pregnant wife, Cassie (Cassidy Freeman, HBO's The Righteous Gemstones), and his sister, Harper (Leven Rambin, The Hunger Games), forcing both families to band together and fight back as the country spirals into chaos and the United States begins to disintegrate around them.

The Sparks Brothers

BBFC Rating 15
Run Time: 141 minutes

Release Date: 30 Jul 2021

There aren't many bands who arrive at their 50th anniversary on a creative roll, still luring in new generations of fans, making Top 10 albums, and doing so by releasing music every bit as challenging and inventive as their earliest recordings. In fact, there is precisely one: Sparks. Ron and Russell Mael are rock's original Odd Couple, as inscrutable as they are fascinating. Never content to rest on their laurels or follow musical trends, they have achieved commercial success only intermittently, and almost despite themselves. Edgar Wright's music documentary 'The Sparks Brothers' captures the art-pop pioneers at an improbable late career high, as well as recounting the story of how they got there, asking why they are not as celebrated as they deserve to be, and finding out how they became your favourite band's favourite band. Featured in the documentary are noted Sparks admirers and collaborators such as Beck, Vince Clarke and Andy Bell of Erasure, Chris Difford of Squeeze, Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand, Nick Rhodes and John Taylor of Duran Duran, Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert of New Order, Nick Heyward, Bjork, Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bernard Butler, Martyn Ware of The Human League/Heaven 17, Roddy Bottum of Faith No More, Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Gos, Steve Jones of Sex Pistols, 'Weird Al' Yankovic, Mike Myers, Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth The archival material unearths many seldom-seen, or never-seen treasures, from childhood home movies to a Mother's Day card written by Russell, to a glimpse of the Maels in the audience at "The Big TNT Show" in 1966, to Ron falling off his stool during the recording of "Something for The Girl with Everything." Perhaps the most touching section though is Wright's own footage of the modern-day Mael brothers, going about their repetitive and mundane daily routines, recalling the famous Gustave Flaubert dictum, "Be ordinary and bourgeois in your life so that you may be violent and original in your work." That violently original work is mirrored immaculately by 'The Sparks Brothers'.

Spirit Untamed

BBFC Rating u
Run Time: 88 minutes

Release Date: 30 Jul 2021

An epic adventure about a headstrong girl longing for a place to belong who discovers a kindred spirit when her life intersects with a wild horse, Spirit Untamed is the next chapter in the beloved story from DreamWorks Animation. Lucky Prescott (Isabela Merced, Dora and the Lost City of Gold) never really knew her late mother, Milagro Navarro (Eiza Gonzalez, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw), a fearless horse-riding stunt performer from Miradero, a small town on the edge of the wide-open frontier. Like her mother, Lucky isn't exactly a fan of rules and restrictions, which has caused her Aunt Cora (Academy Award winner Julianne Moore) no small amount of worry. Lucky has grown up in an East Coast city under Cora's watchful eye, but when Lucky presses her own luck with one too many risky escapades, Cora picks up stakes and moves them both back with Lucky's father, Jim (Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal), in Miradero. Lucky is decidedly unimpressed with the sleepy little town. She has a change of heart when she meets Spirit, a wild Mustang who shares her independent streak, and befriends two local horseback riders, Abigail Stone (Mckenna Grace, Captain Marvel) and Pru Granger (Marsai Martin, Little). Pru's father, stable owner Al Granger (Emmy winner Andre Braugher, Fox's Brooklyn Nine-Nine), is the best friend of Lucky's father. When a heartless horse wrangler (Emmy nominee Walton Goggins, FX's Justified) and his team plan to capture Spirit and his herd and auction them off to a life of captivity and hard labor, Lucky enlists her new friends and bravely embarks on the adventure of a lifetime to rescue the horse who has given her freedom and a sense of purpose, and has helped Lucky discover a connection to her mother's legacy and to her Mexican heritage that she never expected. Spirit Untamed is the next chapter in DreamWorks Animation's beloved franchise that began with the 2002 Oscar-nominated film Spirit: Stallion of Cimarron and includes an Emmy-winning TV series. The film is directed by Elaine Bogan (Netflix and DreamWorks Animation Television's Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia) and is produced by Karen Foster (co-producer, How to Train Your Dragon). The film's co-director is Ennio Torresan (head of story, The Boss Baby), and the film's score is by composer Amie Doherty (Amazon's Undone, DreamWorks Animation's Marooned).
