A David Bowie doc that combines concert footage with archive interviews and the kind of trippy visuals last seen when 2001: A Space Odyssey took us through that stargate, Cobain: Montage of Heck director Brett Morgen’s film turns the amps up to 11 and unleashes a surround-sound journey through the lift of a musical icon. Essential viewing for any fan of the Thin White Duke.

Top Gun: Maverick owned the summer but Mav can only star airborne for so long. Autumn is coming and with it is a whole consignment of exciting new releases to restock your local cinema.
And after a relatively quiet summer at the multiplex, there’s plenty of buzzy films to look forward to – including that Harry Styles/Olivia Wilde team-up, an old-school Julia Roberts and George Clooney romcom, blockbuster returns to Wakanda and Pandora, and the first queer romcom actually written by a queer person to be released by a major Hollywood studio. (Hey, it only took 100 years.)
Here’s 22 films to circle in your calendar as the nights draw in and the local cinema beckons.
