It's the beginning of the work week, and if you’re anything like us here at Cosmo, you've probably already started the countdown to the weekend! And what better way to get you through this week than planning a cinema date?
Visiting the cinema with your friends, your family, your S.O, or even flying solo never disappoints. The issue is choosing the right film. No one likes spending all that money on tickets and popcorn (a cinema essential) when a movie doesn’t live up to expectations.
Not to worry. Cosmo (consisting of self-appointed film critics like myself) are here to the rescue! We’ve rounded up our fave movies currently showing in cinemas, for all you film fanatics out there!
For Those Girl Power/Comedy Fans
The Spy Who Dumped Me
Comedy dream team, Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon, play two 30-year-old best friends who mistakenly get involved in a series of epically hilarious scenarios, involving international conspiracy! Highly recommended for a girl’s night out! Packed with action, there's something for the boys too!
For You Die-Hard Abba Fans
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
Equipped with a soundtrack that will be replaying in your head for the next two weeks straight, the sequel to Mamma Mia! is finally here! Highly anticipated, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again portrays Meryl Streep’s character, Donna in her younger years. Watch as all the questions you had when watching the first part get answered in an almost melodic and poetic way. This film will bring laughs, tears and will definitely be a treat for your loved ones.
For The Young At Heart
Our favourite crime-fighting superhero family is back in all their power and glory! Watch them combat a new villain with the help of everyone’s fave, Frozone, and truly demonstrate how Incredible they really are!
For You Action Movie Buffs
In the mood to watch the Rock take on a skyscraper? Then you're in for a treat with Skyscraper as Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson takes on the role of family man/former FBI agent attempting to save his family from the collapse of the tallest building in Hong Kong. The suspense, action and family ideals in this movie will keep your eyes glued to the screen throughout!
For The Thrill-Seekers
Are you ready to meet Jaws’ bigger, scarier sister? The Meg features a 75-foot long prehistoric shark called megalodon that attacks a research submersible, and of course leaving the crew stranded. Would it really be a shark movie if people weren’t stranded at sea? Jason Statham’s character, Jonas Taylor is called into aid the crew. Hang onto the edge of your chairs in this film, and let’s hope Jason makes it out alive.
For Those Who Don't Scare Easy
This movie is not for the faint of heart, and is definitely armed (no pun-intended) to get your heart racing and your goose bumps going. Watch as average, ordinary people turn to crime, in this fictional horror, due to an experiment in the USA that deemed all types of crime legal in Staten Island. You won’t be able to stop watching the horror unfold...
