New Movies Coming Soon At The Cinema

Star Wars: Episode VII

Director: J.J. Abrams

Cast: TBC

Genre: Sci-Fi Epic

Plot: A teeny tiny, rather intimate arthouse movie. You've probably never heard of it. We'd be surprised if you even notice it when it's released.
Jokes.

The biggest sci-fi franchise on the planet returns with Episode VII , helmed by the man responsible for rejuvenating Star Trek , and a whole host of his original sci-fi/fantasy/action-y blockbusters. The only thing confirmed so far is the director, but with Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher all heavily rumoured to be reprising their roles, here's hoping the force is as strong as ever.

UK Release Date: 18 December 2015

US Release Date: 18 December 2015

Kung-Fu Panda 3 (3D)

Plot: Po and his gang of kung-fu kicking (and punching) heroes return for another Eastern adventure. Plot details are still under wraps, but with Rebel Wilson, Mads Mikkelsen and Bryan Cranston all joining the cast, Dreamworks look keen to continue their quality work to date.

The Crow (2015)

Director: F. Javier Gutierrez
