Easter Holiday Movie Guide 2018

With an even better array of film-going choices than the recent Christmas Blockbuster season, grab those Easter eggs, settle in for a trip to the cinema and be transported through the silver screen of imagination. Going to the movies is still an event for all ages. Here’s a look at what’s on for your viewing pleasure.

NOW SHOWING:

PACIFIC RIM UPRISING

Rated M – best suitable from age 12 (111 min)
John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny, Charlie Day

Mechanical mayhem robotic battles against invading aliens, Part Two of cult favourite Pacific Rim (2015). Transformers fans will be delighted, more action than plot.

PETER RABBIT

Rated PG – best suitable from age 6 (95 min)
Margot Robbie, James Corden, Sam Neill

Wonderful part-animation, part-live action retelling of Beatrix Potter classic rabbit tale mostly made in Australia. A brilliant production, breezy and funny.

TOMB RAIDER

Rated M – best suitable from age 12 (118 min)
Alicia Vikander, Walter Goggins, Kristen Scott Thomas

Reboot of video game franchise replaces Angelina Jolie with equally as competent Oscar Winner Vikander for a sort of origin tale upped with treasure seeking high adventure.

READY PLAYER ONE

Rated M – best suitable from age 12 (140 min)
Ben Mendelsohn, Ty Sheridan, Olivia Cooke

Based on favourite pop culture prose master Director Steven Spielberg. Transfers into science-fiction retro adoring action, you may need to see twice to catch all the references including Back to the Future.

WRINKLE IN TIME

Rated PG – best suitable from age 9 (109 min)
Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Storm Reid

Boring over-blown fantasy children’s adventure with more substance than plot. Some great special effects but emotional threads are lost in translation with extreme emptiness.

LOVE SIMON

Rated M – best suitable from age 14 (110 min)
Katherine Langford, Nick Robinson, Jennifer Garner

Scintillating coming of age story with dedicated believable cast shining a light on angst, acceptance, misery and love, sure to evoke tears of joy. It’s class all the way, standing ovation please.

BLOCKERS

Rated MA – best suitable from age 17 (112 min)
John Cena, Leslie Mann, Kathryn Newton

Definite adults-only outrageous Animal House style comedy concerning a small posse of parents attempting to halt the experimental side of Prom for party hard kids.

SHERLOCK GNOMES

Rated PG – best suitable from age 6 (86 min)
Mary J. Blige, Michael Caine, Emily Blunt

Hilarious well-made animation sort of sequel to surprise hit Gnomeo & Juliet has the world’s greatest detective on the case of missing garden ornaments (which is a thing). Perfect for entire family.

EARLY MAN

Rated PG – best suitable from age 6 (89 min)
Maisie Williams, Tom Hiddleston, Timothy Spall

So much fun from clay animation specialists, creators of Wallace & Gromit, with their version of the stone age era complete with all the cliches but hilarious and bright.

PAUL APOSTLE OF CHRIST

Rated M – best suitable from age 14 (108 min)
Jim Caviezel, James Faulkner, Antonia Campbell-Hughes

Another in a long line of recent faith-based films looks at the story of Paul going from persecutor of christians to apostle of christ. See also recently released MARY MAGDALENE as a complete holy weekend double feature.

IN CINEMAS APRIL 5:

A QUIET PLACE

Rated M – best suitable from age 16 (90 min)
Emily Blunt, John Krasinsky, Doris McCarthy

Family living in the woods are forced to be silent at all times inside their home to avoid being sensed and preyed on by creatures lurking on the outer rim. Thrill-seekers delight, quite scary.

IN CINEMAS APRIL 12:

ISLE OF DOGS

Rated PG – best suitable from age 9 (109 min)
Bryan Cranston, Tilda Swinton, Greta Gerwig, Bill Murray

Must-see canine epic set in Japan following a young boy on the search for his lost dog. Remarkable story-telling, sweet, funny, obscure as only Director Wes Anderson knows how. Sure to charm your socks off.

RAMPAGE

Rated M – best suitable from age 14 (120 min)
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Marley Shelton, Jeffrey Dean Morgan

Grandiose high impact action of a primatologist that shares a close bond with a gorilla since birth but now the ape is King Kong proportioned and has other animal kingdom mega-sized friends on the attack.
