April 2017 at the Cinema

Here we go with the fourth month of the year and entering what is a tricky month for films at the cinema, mainly due to the overall quality that they have in them! It has been my quietest month so far and probably the worst in terms of quality and even enjoyment. I am sure you will understand that when you see which films I caught on the big screen during April!

Cineworld Unlimited Pass is £17.40 per month and I saw 6 films this month costing me £2.90 per film.

I managed to see the following films this month:

6th – Ghost in the Shell – Review

11th – Going in Style – Review

11th – Table 19 – Review

18th – Fast & Furious 8 – Review

21st – Their Finest – Review

21st – Rules Don’t Apply – Review

Preview: April 2017 at the Cinema

Each month I have now decided to do a preview/up and coming post of the films that are going to be coming to the cinema. So here we go for April in 2017 and which films we can look to go and see, or avoid I guess. *Note this is for UK releases*

Probably not going to be the best month of the year at the cinema but I certainly have two films that I am really looking forward to. Yes, I know that does not sound like many at all but when you take a look at the better films this month has on offer then I am sure you will fully understand.

So take a look at what is coming to a cinema near you this month . . .

Competition: 100 Streets

Today marks the release of 100 Streets on DVD in the UK and to celebrate I have a DVD to give away to one lucky person who is based in the UK.

Idris Elba and Gemma Arterton star in ‘A Hundred Streets’, a layered and gripping drama, which takes a fresh look at the vibrant and compelling life of residents in contemporary London – destination capital of the world. Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Jim O’Hanlon directs.

Exclusive: 100 Streets

Idris Elba and Gemma Arterton star in ‘A Hundred Streets’, a layered and gripping drama, which takes a fresh look at the vibrant and compelling life of residents in contemporary London – destination capital of the world. Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Jim O’Hanlon directs.

‘A Hundred Streets’ border and intersect the film’s setting in contemporary London. Chelsea squares back onto high-rise estates, riverside opulence contrasts the day to day grind. It’s in these streets that our cast of characters face major choices and change in their separate lives, as they negotiate their often inter-weaving existences.

The cast’s interconnecting stories paint a picture of a society where you are often loneliest within a crowd. As tension mounts, relationships are strained, loyalties are tested and violence erupts. Yet the underlying message of the film is one of hope; if you reach out to others, life is not a lonely struggle. With nods to both Crash and Amores Perros and inspired by London life, A Hundred Streets portrays modern city life in all its complexity and will resonate deeply with those who have lived it.

Release Date: November 11th 2016

As the BFI London Film Festival starts tonight I thought it would be a good idea to put a post together to preview some of the films that will be making an appearance at the festival and the different Gala/UK Premiere’s happening over the next 11 days. It really is a fantastic event that takes over the many cinemas in Leicester Square with plenty of star acting power in attendance.
