Two of the most exciting trailers to come out this week are full of action and horror and we couldn’t be more excited!!!
The official trailer for Candyman is giving both a dose of nostalgia (for those of us who can remember the original film and the buzz around it) and a taste of a Black horror film that we can all do with.
And what adult or child isn’t excited about finally seeing a peek at what to expect from the highly anticipated Sing 2 with Letitia Wright? Oh how we can’t wait for Christmas, minus the cold weather of course.
The White Lotus – Sunday 11th July (HBO Max)
A social satire set at the exclusive Hawaiian resort, The White Lotus, follows the vacations of various hotel guests over the span of a week as they relax and rejuvenate in paradise.

Ted Lasso Season 2 – Friday 23rd July (Apple TV+)
Ted Lasso, an American football coach hired to manage a British soccer team—despite having no experience. But what he lacks in knowledge, he makes up for with optimism, underdog determination… and biscuits. With Toheeb Jimoh, Sarah Niles and Kevin Garry.
The Suicide Squad – Friday 30th July (In Cinemas)
Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favourite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead. Starring Idris Elba, Viola Davis and Storm Reid.
Candyman – Friday 27th August (In Cinemas)
For as long as residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago’s Cabrini Green neighborhood were terrorized by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, visual artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) and his girlfriend, gallery director Brianna Cartwright (Teyonah Parris), move into a luxury loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by upwardly mobile millennials.
With Anthony’s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer (Colman Domingo) exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifying wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny. Also Starring Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, LaKeith Stanfield and Tony Todd.
Sing 2 – Christmas 2021 (In Cinemas)
Buster Moon and his friends must persuade reclusive rock star Clay Calloway to join them for the opening of a new show. With Letitia Wright, Eric André and Pharrell Williams.
