All The Best Movies You Can Catch In Aussie Cinemas After Lockdown Ends
Nothing beats settling into an oversized chair with a bucket of popcorn and block of chocolate (hey, no judgement here), putting aside our phones and getting lost in a film. It’s the best.
Thankfully, the day we can go see flicks again is finally on the horizon. Joining the long list of things set to reopen on July 1 in NSW are cinemas, though things might be a little different (and a lot more sanitary) given our current circumstances. (We covered the topic in broad strokes here but we suggest you check in with your local spot to find out specifics around when they'll be open and exactly how it'll all work.)
So, what to watch? From an incredibly timely documentary to a drama that's being compared to Oscar winner, Moonlight, there's some great stuff to go see. You'll probably be finding yourself teeing up movie dates over the next few weeks.
Scroll below to find out what’s on our radar right now. Keep in mind that the release dates of these films here in Aus could still shift too, given where America is at with COVID-19.
In My Blood It Runs (June onwards – list of cinemas screening it here)
This is an incredibly timely film, given the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement in Australia in recent weeks. This documentary follows 10-year-old Arrernte Aboriginal boy, Dujuan, as he grows up in Alice Springs.
The Personal History Of David Copperfield (July 2)
Anything movie starring Dev Patel has our vote. This flick puts a funny spin on Charles Dickens’ classic Victorian tale of a poor orphan, played by Patel, who works his way towards becoming a successful writer.
Mulan (July 23)
The fact that this is Disney’s most expensive live-action film to date alone should give you reason to watch this one. The movie's touted as a real-life adaption of the 1998 animated classic that centres on a female warrior who dresses up as a dude to take the place of her sick father in the army.
Waves (July 9)
You might want to bring some tissues for this one... there’s a good chance you’ll shed some tears. The drama, which has been compared to Oscar winner Moonlight, tells the story of an African-American family dealing with a terrible loss.
The Broken Hearts Gallery (July 17)
If you’re after a good rom-com, look no further than this Selena Gomez-produced flick. The film centres on a girl living in NYC who decides to create a pop-up space for all the memorabilia she's gathered from past relationships.
Tenet (July 30)
While we don’t have too much info on this movie yet, we do know its basic premise: a secret agent is tasked with preventing World War III. No biggie. John David Washington, Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Debicki all star and it's written and directed by Christopher Nolan, too.
Bill & Ted Face The Music (August)
The third film in the Bill & Ted franchise, this sci-fi comedy kicks off when a visitor from the future telling besties Bill and Ted, now middle-aged, that one of their tunes can save life as we know it. Aussie gal Samara Weaving will join usual suspects Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter and William Sadler.
