Nicholas’ together in a movie, Big George Foreman’s biopic and more…

There are plenty of wonderful films to catch in the cinema this week – if you’re into horror films that is. It’s Halloween in April, and with the release of the anticipated Renfield, a film that is ominously called The Tank and a movie that was filmed entirely in outer space we are in for an intergalactic, popcorn-flinging fest this week.

Settle in, grab your favourite movie snack (nachos and a large cola for me) and enjoy the new films in the cinema this week. 


“Renfield feels like a dialled-up, unashamedly brazen Dusk Till Dawn and Brooklynn Nine-Nine crossover project with Nicholas Cage as an archetypal Dracula and Nicholas Hoult on ghoulishly good form, and it’s gorily, cartoonishly-violently, brilliant.” – an elevator review, from the What’s On team.
