This month's unmissable movies! Suicide Squad and more!


It's August and that means it's time to get ready for an onrush of truly incredible movies headed towards your Cineworld screen. Here's your round-up of the biggest movies headed your way this month.

Blockbuster action

Blitzing Cineworld screens this month is a superhero movie unlike any other - because all of the characters are actually iconic villains. Yes on 5th August, Suicide Squad is finally going to tear across the big screen with Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto all bringing classic comic book characters Deadshot, Harley Quinn and The Joker to demented life. Bored of comic book movies that play it safe? This could be the one for you.

Family fun

It's the school holidays and that can only mean one thing: you're looking to make a Cineworld visit, right? Well you're spoilt for choice this August with Disney's critically acclaimed remake of Pete's Dragon (out on 12th August) and, on 19th August, Kevin Spacey is turned into a cat in the madcap Nine Lives.

If it's something more adventurous you're after, don't miss the wistful and nostalgic adaptation of Arthur Ransome's beloved novel Swallows and Amazons, released on 19th August.

Nail-biting thrillers

Prepare to grip your seat and expect a whole load of paranoia with this month's gripping releases. On 11th August, Dave Franco and Emma Roberts are drawn into a terrifyingly immersive game in Nerve whilst Blake Lively is menaced by a monstrous Great White Shark in The Shallows, released on 12th August.

Then on 19th August we're looking at potentially one of this year's sleeper hits in the form of creepy horror Lights Out. Produced by Conjuring filmmaker James Wan and adapted from a sensationally scary short film (see below), this is a spine-tingling story of what lurks in the shadows... And if you're still in the mood for being scared, don't miss The Purge: Election Year that hits Cineworld on 26th August.

Hilarious comedy

Calling all chilled-out entertainers! We're delighted to announce the return of the one and only David Brent, on the big screen no less, in his movie debut Life on the Road. The former Wernham Hogg boss is now touring with his band Foregone Conclusion, and Ricky Gervais' classic comedy creation promises to be as cringingly hysterical as you remember him.

And if truly outrageous comedy fits the bill, don't miss Bad Moms starring Mila Kunis and Kristen Bell as a pair of stressed-out parents who seriously want to party. It's out on 26th August, as is Miles Teller/Jonah Hill buddy comedy War Dogs, a raucous tale of American gun-runners in Afghanistan from the makers of The Hangover.

Which August movie are you most excited about seeing? Let us know @Cineworld.
