      Patient Zero


        More Zombies….?! Yup. We find ourselves in yet another scenario of some mysterious global pandemic that has infected almost all people and turned them into aggressive flesh eaters, but wait, there’s hope: not everyone is infected just yet, and some people even turn out to be immune, so together with the army they are working to find a cure. Thank god for that. Now if only they can find Patient Zero – then they can create the anti-viral strain that will surely prove to be able to save mankind.

      Hurok (Loop)


        Drug dealer Adam is planning to double-cross his boss Dezsõ and make a big hit by fleeing the country with 200 vials of illegally harvested growth hormones. Things of course don’t go as planned and soon Deszõ comes looking for revenge on Adam as he seems to know what he is up to. Hurok is Hungarian for ‘Loop’, and the title gives it away already – as things spiral out of control, Adam somehow finds himself in a time loop and re-lives the same events multiple times.

      Leave No Trace


        We meet Will (Ben Foster) and his 13-year old daughter Tom (Thomasin McKenzie) as they are camping in a park near Portland, Oregon. They are both clearly comfortable in the woods, and also with each other. They forage for food, make campfires, and practice drills to keep out of sight of prying eyes. As viewers, we soon figure out that they are not on a camping trip – this is in fact where and how they live.

      Hotel Artemis


        Hotel Artemis has a lot going for it. A simple but creative premise: in a not too distant future, criminals can get emergency medical attention in a members-only Hotel. An interesting ensemble cast, led by Jodie Foster and supported by Jeff Goldblum, Dave Bautista and Zachary Quinto to name a few. A great director of photography Chung-hoon Chung, who captured the atmosphere in movies like The Handmaiden and It. So things are set for a great movie.

      Sicario: Day of the Soldado


        A key part of the success of 2015’s Sicario was Emily Blunt’s role, which provided a moral balance to the hard-hitting story. Her character does not return in Sicario: Day of the Soldado; the main reason for this, according the director Stefano Sollima, was that they explicitly did not want this sequel to have a moral compass. Unfortunately, it turns out that is exactly what makes this movie nowhere near as interesting as its predecessor.

      Cargo


        The zombie genre is certainly alive and well these days. So how do you make another movie about the undead that has something new to offer? Actually, a lot of recent zombie movies aren’t about undead raising from the grave – most of them have some kind of disease as the background to people ‘turning’. The same applies to the zombies in Cargo, but it has two elements that do make it stand out: firstly it is a human story rather than a gore fest; and secondly it is set in the Australian outback.
