1 . Mean Girl . 17th January
Your perception is accurate; the Plastics have returned to grace our screens officially. A whopping two decades (yes, we acknowledge the time!) since the original film’s cinematic debut, it is undergoing a resurgence via an adaptation of the Mean Girls Broadway musical, which, in turn, drew inspiration from the original movie. Tina Fey and Tim Meadows are slated to revisit their roles as Miss Norbury and Principal Duvall. Stepping into the lead roles for the movie are Angourie Rice as Cady Heron and Reneé Rapp as Regina George.
2 . All of Us Strangers , 26th January
Starring Andrew Scott and Paul Mescal, “All of Us Strangers” narrates the story of Adam (Scott), whose everyday life takes an unexpected turn when he has a chance meeting with his neighbor, Harry (Mescal). As their relationship evolves, Adam finds himself caught up in memories from the past, leading him to revisit his childhood home. To his surprise, he encounters his parents seemingly living as they did on the day they passed away 30 years earlier. Brace yourself for an emotional journey – it looks like tissues might be a necessity for this one.
3 . The Color Purple , 26th January
Based on Alice Walker’s critically acclaimed novel, “The Color Purple” boasts an ensemble cast, including Fantasia Taylor, Taraji P. Henson, Danielle Brooks, and Halle Bailey. The movie unravels a multi-decade narrative, capturing the enduring journey of Celie, a woman who courageously fights for survival and independence.
4 . Argylle , 2 February
In search of a new spy film? “Argylle” could be the perfect choice for you. Elly Conway, portrayed by Bryce Dallas Howard, is an introverted spy novelist whose world takes a surprising twist when the events from one of her novels come to life. Pulled into the schemes of a malevolent underground syndicate, Elly must navigate a realm that reflects the intrigue of her own imaginative creations.
5 . It End With Us , 9th Febuary
Attention, Colleen Hoover fans — the moment you’ve eagerly awaited is finally here. Come February, cinemas will host the long-anticipated adaptation of “It Ends With Us.” This film follows the story of Lily, embroiled in a intricate love triangle with two markedly different men, Ryle and Atlas. It intricately explores the generational cycle of abuse that ensnares Lily in its complex web.
6 . Dune (Part 2 ) || 1 March
Expanding upon the triumph of the initial installment, “Dune: Part 2” is scheduled for an early March release, with Timothée Chalamet reprising his role as Paul Atreides.
