It’s been just over two years since Chadwick Boseman tragically passed away, and the first Black Panther film without him will be an emotional affair.

Since Parasite won Best Picture, these ‘Eat the rich’ narratives have become very popular in mainstream cinema, but director Mark Mylod takes it to a whole different level. Ralph Fiennes plays a famous chef who has meticulously planned a lavish meal for his guests, but with each course, the night gets more and more sinister, with deadly consequences.

Armageddon Time / November 18

Bones and All Film

Cannibals, but make it romantic. Luca Guadagnino’s Bones and All is both a horror film and a grand romance, all set against the Reaganism of the 80s. Taylor Russell is simply luminescent as Maren, a young cannibal who meets and falls in love with Lee (Timothee Chalamet).

She Said / November 25
