An epic feature film about a hero and his underpants. It’s about two boys who create a homemade comic book character that becomes real when they hypnotise their fun-crushing school principal and convince him that he... is tra-la-la... Captain Underpants.

NOPE (2022)
Starring Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, Steven Yeun, Barbie Ferreira, Brandon Perea, Michael Wincott, Terry Notary, Conor Kawalski and Mark Casimir Dyniewicz Jr. Directed by Jordan Peele.
CANDYMAN (2021)
Starring Lakeith Stanfield, Yahya Abdul-Mateen Ii, Teyonah Parris, Tony Todd, Cassie Kramer, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Colman Domingo, Rebecca Spence, Kyle Kaminsky and Carl Clemons-Hopkins. Directed by Nia Dacosta.

For as long as residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago’s Cabrini Green neighborhood were terrorised by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, visual artist Anthony McCoy and his girlfriend, gallery director Brianna Cartwright, move into a luxury loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by upwardly mobile millennials.

With Anthony’s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifyingly viral wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.

REVIEWS Candyman - Sweet, sugar, Candyman

BLACKKKLANSMAN (2018)
Starring John David Washington, Adam Driver, Laura Harrier, Topher Grace, Robert John Burke, Corey Hawkins, Paul Walter Hauser, Craig Mums Grant, Michael J. Burg and Jasper Pääkkönen. Directed by Spike Lee.

From visionary director Spike Lee comes the provocative story based on Ron Stallworth’s real life as Colorado Springs’s first African-American police officer who went undercover to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan. Unbelievably, Detective Stallworth and his partner Flip Zimmerman penetrate the KKK at its highest levels to thwart its attempt to take over the city. Produced by the team behind the Academy Award-winning 'Get Out', Spike Lee uses his trademark take-no-prisoner style and humour to tell this story often missing from the history books.

REVIEWS BlacKkKlansman - Spike Lee plays his Trump card
