Take That, spectacular mountains, Kathy Bates and more...we're giving you 5 excellent reasons to get off your sofa, out the house and into our screens this month.
1. The Wonderful World of Wes Anderson in Asteroid City
Anderson's latest fantasy takes place in a fictional American desert town circa 1955, in which the itinerary of a Space Cadet convention is spectacularly disrupted by world-changing events. The first reviews from Cannes say this might be peak Wes Anderson. We hope so! If these posters are anything to go by, we're in for a treat.
2. Kathy Bates!
The iconic actor is back on the big screen as Margaret Simon's beloved granny in the delightful screen adaptation of best seller Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. From Misery and Fried Green Tomatoes to Titanic and Dolores Claiborne she's likely to have been in one of your favourite '90s classics. We guarantee she's just as good in this one. Check out this fantastic interview breaking down her acting career.
3. Come for the views, stay for the bromance in The Eight Mountains
Set against the wonderful backdrop of the Italian Alps, this story of a lifelong friendship between two young men has beguiled film critics worldwide and got a big thumbs up by Edgar Wright too!
4. Sing along to your fave Take That hits!
That's right, the Take That official musical Greatest Days has now been adapted for the big screen - starring Aisling Bea, Alice Lowe, Jayde Adams and Amaka Okafor as four besties reuniting to see their favourite band together.
5. The Three Colours Trilogy in 4K
Krzysztof Kieślowski's homage to the French Revolutionary ideals in his Blue, White and Red films is a triple masterpiece that deserves to be seen on the big screen; this is your chance!
