Coming Soon – Sci-fi and Fantasy Movies In August

Week beginning 10th of August.


Absolutely Anything (UK Release 14/8 – Sci-fi)

Directed by Monty Python’s Terry Jones, it stars Kate Beckinsale, Robin Williams and Simon Pegg. A group of aliens, with nothing better to do, give a random human being the power to do absolutely anything, as an experiment. Everyone’s dream, really. Watch the trailer, it’s funny and it will give you a chance to hear Robin William’s voice again – he’s the dog!

Pixels (UK Release 12/8 – Sci-fi)

Directed by Chris Columbus (Harry Potter 1 & 2, Mrs Doubtfire, Home Alone). The cast includes Adam Sandler, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage and Sean Bean (how will he die this time, I hear you cry), and it takes us – old farts – on a journey filled with classic arcade games. Trust a bunch of aliens to misinterpret the video feeds of these classic games as a declaration of war. The result? Attack the Earth in the video games’ style.
