With such a huge library of hit movies available, it can be tough to decide what to check out first. Here's our pick of the best of what's available this month.
This fishy entry in the DC Extended Universe was a surprise monster hit, grossing well over a billion dollars at the box office. Starring Jason Momoa as the titular superhero, Aquaman sees him finally don the gold and green suit and accept his destiny as the one to unite Atlantis and defeat the evil Black Manta.
Aquaman is another decent entry in the DC film universe, matching Wonder Woman as an example of what it can do right with a frankly niche character. With plenty of action and impressive under-water CGI effects, the film is a feast for the eyes even if its plot doesn’t sweep you away.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse
For more superhero frolics this August, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse more than delivers. Featuring a stunning animation style, the film is a true treat for both kids and adults alike, with colours that pop out of the screen and an interesting framerate style, giving it a jerky and stylish look.
Into the Spider-verse sees Miles Morales thrust into the worlds of different Spider-Men, who have to work together to stop gangster Kingpin whilst Miles is just discovering his powers. Spider-verse offers one of the most unique and dynamic takes on the character in a long while and will prove to be a delight for die-hard Spider-fans.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
The latest in the Harry Potter prequel series finally hits NOW TV. The Crimes of Grindelwald continues the story of Newt Scamander as he’s tasked by Dumbledore to find the powerful dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (played by Johnny Depp) with the help of some of his old friends.
The Crimes of Grindelwald takes the characters audiences loved from the first film and expands the universe around them, offering a thrilling prequel for Harry Potter fans, which promises to get even bigger with the next entries. Depp is effective as the villain and Jude Law is strangely interesting as a young Dumbledore.
Bad Times at the El Royale
This neon-tinged thriller from Drew Goddard features a packed cast, including Jeff Bridges, Jon Hamm a chilling turn from Chris Hemsworth, who plays a Manson-esque cult leader. Bad Times at the El Royale is an old-school neo-noir that feels like it was lifted straight from the ‘90s, and consequently made next to no money at the box office.
Whilst the film is worth watching for Hemsworth’s performance alone, it’s also a quietly effective and gripping potboiler, taking some turns you absolutely won’t see coming. Whilst the film might be a bit too long, it’s still a welcome antidote if you’re not interested in superheroes or big franchises.
