7 new must-sees we can’t wait to watch this year

The trailers alone have us excited.

A Quiet Place II

The trailer looks genuinely terrifying. So as not to give too much away in terms of plot, we know that the alien creatures who prey on sound are still roaming the world, and that Blunt’s character Evelyn is on a mission to avenge.

June 3rd, 2021, in cinemas

West Side Story

The Steven Speilberg-directed remake already is a hit with critics – and that’s just based on the trailer. Set in the late 50s, the film sees rival gangs – the white American Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks – battling it out for control of a neighbourhood on Manhattan’s West Side. And against this backdrop, a former Jet (Tony) and a Shark girl (Maria) fall in love. We can’t wait for this one.

10th December 2021, in cinemas

Nine Perfect Strangers

Based on a book by Liane Moriarty, the same author behind Big Little Lies – which also starred Nicole Kidman it tells the story of nine strangers who are thrown into one another’s lives as they arrive together for an intensive program at a much-hyped wellness retreat tucked away in the Australian outback.

Release date TBC, late summer 2021, Hulu

Vigil 

Starring Suranne Jones and Martin Compston, Vigil has been created by the same team behind Line of Duty and begins with a suspicious death aboard the submarine HMS Vigil. Jones, as DCI Amy Silva, is called in to investigate and it soon becomes clear this is only the tip of an iceberg.

BBC1, late Summer

Georgetown 

Quite frankly little sounds better to this writer than a movie starring (and directed by) Christoph Waltz as a smooth-yet-unsettling social-climbing murderer who’s based on Albrecht Muth, a man accused of killing his 91-year-old wife, Viola Drath, in their Georgetown row house in 2011. The film was inspired by journalist Franklin Foer’s New York Times story The Worst Marriage in Georgetown, published in 2012, and also features Waltz in an eyepatch. Sold already.

May 2021, on demand

Stranger Things 4

We have a teaser, but still many questions. It could prelude as a flashback to the show’s first season and a clue that we’ll see more of Eleven’s origin story in the lab. Or it could be a sign that Dr. Brenner is still alive and using more experiments (and kids) to try to get back into contact with Eleven.

Release date TBC, Netflix

The 8th

Extraordinarily powerful, The 8th traces Ireland’s campaign to remove the 8th Amendment – a constitutional ban on abortion. It shows a country’s transformation from a conservative state in thrall to the Catholic church to a more liberal secular society. The 8th includes voices from both sides of the debate, but its primary focus is on the dynamic female leaders of the pro-choice campaign, including veteran campaigner Ailbhe Smyth and self-described glitter-activist Andrea Horan as they chart a bold strategy of grassroots activism and engineer the impossible.
