The Light Cinema Ones to Watch - March '16

Posted 2 March 2016

Welcome to The Light Cinema New Brighton’s forthcoming Ones to Watch, give you

a run-down of forthcoming movies that are sure to satisfy to all tastes and moods.


Hail, Caesar! is the the newest release from four-time Oscar-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old MenTrue GritFargo). This all-star comedy is set during Hollywood’s Golden Age and follows a day in the life of a studio fixer (Josh Brolin) who spends his day dealing with the problems of Hollywood’s biggest stars. He also faces his biggest task when Baird Whitlock (played by Coen favourite, George Clooney) gets kidnapped while filming epic "Hail, Caesar!” If the studio doesn't pay the ransom it's the end of the line for Hollywood’s leading man.

If you love the Coen's then you are sure to love this and we'd strongly advise to get yourself down here as quickly as you possibly can! The film also stars Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton and Channing Tatum!


It’s finally here, the epic battle between two of the worlds most iconic superheroes takes place from March 25th. Henry Cavill reprises his role as Superman with Ben Affleck playing the man behind the mask of the dark knight and we’re introduced us to Wonder Woman played by Fast and Furious’ Gal Godot and Jeremy Irons as Alfred.

Fearing the actions of Superman are left unchecked, Batman takes on Superman, while the world wrestles with what kind of a hero it really needs. With Batman and Superman fighting each other, Lex Luthor creates a new threat, Doomsday. It's up to Superman and Batman to set aside their differences along with Wonder Woman to stop Lex Luthor and Doomsday from destroying Metropolis.


  • ZOOTROPOLIS - March 25th 
  • Zootroplolis is the latest release from Disney Pixar and takes place in the modern mammal metropolis Zootropolis that is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighbourhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together – a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin – Once Upon A Time) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals aint so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam artist fox, Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman – Arrested Development), to solve the mystery.
