All is not well in movie land; the workers in the dream factory are restive. Superheroes face a terrible future (Avengers: Endgame). True stories are preoccupied with terror, both from the fringe (Hotel Mumbai) and from within the state (Peterloo). Personal relationships are fraught with danger in movies like The Kindergarten Teacher, Destroyer and Burning, and even the kids' films are dark tales of exploitation and derision (Dumbo). And we haven't even started on the the horror movies... (Us, Pet Sematary). This is your moviegoing landscape in autumn, 2019 – but if you can make it through unscathed, your reward is a fantastical Elton John biopic (Rocketman). So say goodbye to that yellow brick road and strap yourself in for the ride.
