From scary clowns, to spies and assassins, and to a group of medical students trying to discover what happens when they die, this month’s upcoming film releases seems to have it all!
First up is yet another Stephen King creation, as he has had two television adaptions, a film adaption, and a new book out all in the past three months. Then there’s a new twisted creation from Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky, a Tom Cruise film, and the surprising sequel to the outrageous Kingsman: The Secret Service film (2014).
If action or thrillers aren’t your speed, catch Emma Stone and Steve Carrell in a tennis match, or a single mother (played by Reese Witherspoon) living with three young males.
But if you do desire the aforementioned genres, then the fast pace American Assassin film will definitely get your blood pumping, or if you prefer something a little flatter, give Flatliners a go because they love to stop hearts.
Read on to discover what’s coming to theatres near you and tell us in the comments below what you will be watching this month!
