Black Widow

Malignant
Warner Bros

Malignant

From the mind of Hollywood’s main horror conjuror James Wan comes a new horrifying story about Madison, a mother-to-be who suddenly loses her baby and then starts to see visions of gory murders committed by her imaginary childhood friend Gabriel.

A Quiet Place Part II
imdb

A Quiet Place Part II

Release date: October 1

In this sequel to the nail-biting 2018 hit, we are taken on a flashback to when sound-sensitive aliens first landed on Earth, causing chaos and carnage. In present day, newly widowed mother Evelyn (still brilliantly played by Emily Blunt) now knows the weakness of their extraterrestrial nemeses. She and her children venture out to band with other survivors while dealing with their own traumas. 

 

Supernova
Studiocanal

No Time to Die
MGM

No Time to Die

Release date: October 7

Daniel Craig’s fifth and last outing as 007 sees the now-retired agent briefly going back into action to chase after yet another mysterious baddie who plans to cause chaos with destructive new technology.

The Suicide Squad
Warner Bros

The Suicide Squad

Release date: October 1

Don’t confuse this with the critically-panned 2016 attempt at giving life to a troop of crazy DC supervillains back in 2016. The Suicide Squad (as opposed to just “Suicide Squad”) is the sequel-slash-reboot, as well as an ambitious undertaking to overshadow the reputation of the original incarnation. It’s directed by James Gunn (you know, of Marvel’s Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy fame), so it would be interesting to see how the movie pans out.
