Even though it feels like the world of streaming has taken over the world, going to the cinema is still an experience. The atmospheric sound, the massive screen, and of course eating all of your popcorn before the trailers have finished. In February, we’ve got blockbuster new releases such as Magic Mike’s Last Dance, a horror reimagining of Winnie the Pooh as well as a 3D re-release of Titanic. Here’s a list of the hotly anticipated films dropping in Australian cinemas this month.
Knock at the Cabin
Adapted from the 2018 novel Cabin At The End Of The World, this horror film follows a young girl and her parents as they’re taken hostage by armed strangers at a holiday home. Life-critical choices, the apocalypse – Knock at the Cabin is worth the watch for lovers of the weird and spooky.
Magic Mike’s Last Dance
Hollywood heartthrob Channing Tatum is back for the third installment of the Magic Mike franchise. The film sees Mike returning to the stage in London, joined by a wealthy socialite, played by Salma Hayek, who makes him an offer he can’t refuse.
Titanic (remastered in 3D)
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the original Titanic movie has been remastered in 3D to celebrate its 25th anniversary (yes, it’s been that long). Obviously this isn’t a new release as such, but it’ll sure feel like it.
Based on the bestselling memoir by Michael Ausiello, this emotional love story follows a relationship turned tragic when one of them is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Jim Parsons plays the main character and he’s joined by Ben Aldridge.
Winnie The Pooh: Blood and Honey
It’s our innocent childhood cartoon character recreated into a bloody nightmare. Yes, that’s right: Pooh and Piglet are on a rampage in the new horror film that has us shaking our heads but also curious to watch.
In this moving drama starring Rooney Mara and Claire Foy, women on a remote religious community in Bolivia struggle with their faith after a string of sexual abuse from the men that live among them.
