Get your favourite flavour of popcorn ready because the first week of autumn seems like it is off to a good start with diverse genres of movies finally being released. A few have been long-awaited by fans and movie enthusiasts. So expect thrillers, Sci-Fi, and superhero movies this week!
For all Marvel fans, the wait is finally over! Shang Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings is the 25th Marvel flick to be released, and it’s accurately based on the comics. The martial arts master Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) fights against his past and his father’s will when he realises that he has to be part of a dangerous organisation called the Ten Rings. The fight scenes are fascinating, and the movie also manages to create characters that you will feel deeply connected with.
From the people who brought you classics like The Saw and Insidious, this horror thriller is just what you need to kickstart the spooky autumn season. Horrifying visions of shocking murders suddenly start occurring to Madison Michel (Annabelle Wallis) in her dreams. These unusual visions begin to torment her more when she realises that the victims of the murders are real people. After realising that these visions are not mere hallucinations but terrifying realities, her struggle worsens as she tries to help others before they fall victim to the vicious villain after them.
This 1960s classic is being rereleased in 4k for Gen Z to enjoy and appreciate. If you are not familiar with the movie, it is an adaptation of the Sci-Fi short story “The Sentinel” by Arthur C. Clarke. The story revolves around a monolith that was discovered and the scientists quest to find its origins. Aboard the spaceship Discovery One, Dr Dave Bowman (Keir Dullea) and his team of experienced astronauts are on a journey to Jupiter. Their spacecraft starts to exhibit strange behaviour as the supercomputer system, HAL, begins to malfunction. What truly makes this movie stand out is that it was created before humans even o landed on the moon.
