This action-packed thriller is a prequel to the “Kingsman” film series: “The Secret Service” and “The Golden Circle”, which are loosely based on the popular comic books, created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons. The story is set at the beginning of the 20th century, during World War I. It depicts the early days of the stylish spy agency, when the initial formation takes place. We see Ralph Fiennes in the role of the sophisticated Duke of Oxford, who is sick of doing nothing “while governments wait for orders.” That is why the Duke has a secret life as a member of a highly-organised society of skilful people who are not afraid to put their backs into fighting the evil ones. With its stellar cast, “The King’s Man” promise a compelling story, full of strong characters and plot twists, acrobatic cascades and a pinch of English humour.

But as it happens in real families, its members may quarrel from time to time but they are also there for each other in hard times. That is why Bea and Thomas follow their lovable rabbit and soon find themselves in a rescue mission which as equally dangerous as hilarious.

Based on Donna Tartt’s 2013 novel of the same name, “The Goldfinch” centres around Theodore "Theo" Decker, a young man with a troubled childhood. Theo was only 13 years old when a tragedy marks him forever - his mother dies in a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York while he manages to survive the attack. In the chaos and debris around him, Theo gets something that goes with him through his entire life, full of misery, guilt and pain. It is the vision of his mother favourite work of art from the Dutch Golden Age, “The Goldfinch”. While the painting becomes famous thanks to Donna Tartt’s novel, the story of its artist, Carel Fabritius, is even stranger than a fiction could create.
It all started in 1962 with the “Dr. No” film, the first of the James Bond series, starring Sean Connery as the fictional MI6 agent 007 and Ursula Andress as his girl during the Jamaica mission. Today we have the honour to see the jubilee 25th film for the adventures of the legendary British spy. “No Time to Die” is the 5th film featuring Daniel Craig as Bond, James Bond and also his last role in the series. We are back to Jamaica where our ex-spy enjoys a peaceful but luxury living as he is no longer in active service. The tranquil days are over when an old friends finds Bond and asks him for help. It is a rescue mission to save a kidnapped scientist that goes out of control when it turns out that a dangerous technology is in the wrong hands.
Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren are Roy Courtnay and Betty McLeish in this thriller, based on the novel of the same name written by Nicholas Searle. Roy is a conman who meets the wealthy widow Betty online, and sees a great (an easy) opportunity to run off with her millions. When he manages to persuade Betty to open her beautiful home and good heart to him, Roy finds himself in an unusual situation – he starts caring about the welfare of his ‘victim’. While our guy is plotting a scheme against the rich old girl, he realises that he actually don’t know anything about Betty. In a series of peculiar circumstances, the line between chaser and chased becomes more and more thin. Till the surprising dénouement.
We enjoyed their exceptional performance in Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar.” This time Matthew McConaughy and Anne Hathaway combine forces in a Steve Knight’s thriller. “Serenity” is a film that tells an unusual tale about a fishing boat captain with a mysterious past which he wants to forget. He is living peacefully on a beautiful Caribbean island until an encounter with a charismatic woman turns his world upside down and makes him doubt the nature of his reality. Matthew McConaughy is an Academy Award Winner for the “Dallas Buyers Club,” while Anne Hathaway started an Oscar collection with her prize for the “Les Miserables.”
Interesting thing about the true stories is that they are often more incredible than fiction, created by the imagination of a talented writer. “The Upside” is the third remake of this heart-warming story after the 2011’s French film “The Intouchables”. The partnership between three great actors - Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”), Kevin Hart (“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”) and Nicole Kidman (“Far and Away”) is so smooth and natural that their work doesn’t feel like acting. Those of you who have seen “The Intouchables” know that the plot revolves around a wealthy but paralysed man who develops a wonderful friendship with his assistant. While the ex-convict Dell Scott struggles to find a decent job, little does he expect that helping someone with quadriplegia will not only feel rewarding but it will be great fun too!
Being a sequel to the 2017’s “Happy Death Day”, this slasher film follows Theresa "Tree" Gelbman (Jessica Rothe) in her desperate (and sometimes funny) endeavor to escape a time loop. Dying over and over again is not something you could wish for, but our hero finds it surprisingly easy. Although the original killer, Lori Spengler, has been murdered, Tree realizes that a new, more violent killer is after her. What is different this time is that it's not only about Tree but it is also about her friends. Now it becomes clear to the pretty girl that the key to breaking free from this wicked game is to uncover the identity of the person who not only wants her dead, but who wants to hurt her buddies.
Don’t let the title of this film mislead you into thinking that it is in any way related to the culinary topic. Believe it or not, but this is actually a criminal drama. Set in the New York of the dramatic 1970s, “The Kitchen” follows the struggles of three women - Claire Walsh (Elisabeth Moss), Ruby O’Carroll (Tiffany Haddish), and Kathy Brennan (Melissa McCarthy. What is the common between these ladies? Except the fact that their husbands are all in prison ‘thanks’ to FBI, nothing. Until the need to take care of their families and pay the bills forces Claire, Ruby and Kathy to learn new skills. Well, it’n not like learning how to typewrite or how to cook a dinner for 10 guests, these are more specific skills. More how to kill people, how outsmart merciless gangsters and how to show that the place of women does not belong (only) in the kitchen. Not in the traditional meaning of this phrase, anyway.
