There are still SEVEN more huge movies to be released in Irish cinemas this May

Brought to you by MyOmniPass


Not sure which ones to go see? Don't worry, we've got you covered!


In case you haven't noticed, 2019 has been a pretty stellar year for cinema so far, and your pals at JOE and The Big Reviewski have tried their darndest to direct you towards the best movies to check out.


However, even in the two weeks left in May, there are still A LOT of amazing looking movies to check out, and most of them require you to seek out the biggest and loudest cinema screen you can, because they are BLOCKBUSTERS, all caps, and maybe italicised if your budget can stretch to it.


We also know that going to the cinema (counts on fingers) SEVEN more times in the next two weeks might seem like it'll take a good chunk out of your wallet, but if you haven't heard of it yet, the new My OmniPass from Omniplex Cinemas entitles subscribers to one ticket to every standard movie, 10% off your cinema goodies, 10% off any extra tickets purchased online for your friends, free upgrades of MyOmniPass tickets to the MAXX and Recline shows, and exclusive screenings just for My OmniPass members!


So, yeah, you'd get to see all seven of these movies for less than €20 a month!


Friday 17 May - John Wick 3: Parabellum


As we said in our review, the third movie has the single best action sequence in the entire trilogy to date so far. So if you're a fan of the first two (and lets be honest, you really should be a fan of the first two), then you'll be happy to hear that you'll 100% be a fan of this one, too.


Wednesday 22 May - Aladdin


It was always going to be tough to remake Aladdin, because the animated performance of Robin Williams will go down in history as one of the greatest of all time. However, director Guy Ritchie (Snatch) and his incredible cast (including Will Smith as the new Genie, which he clearly had an awesome time at) update the story just enough to give it a fresh feel, while still featuring all of the amazing musical numbers from the original.

Wednesday 22 MayRocketman

JOE was lucky enough to check out some early footage from the Elton John biopic at the iconic Abbey Road Studios a while back, and we can say that this is NOT just another Bohemian Rhapsody. Instead, it has more in common with the musical fantasy vibe of Moulin Rouge!, with some incredible performances by Taron Egerton and Richard Madden.


Friday 24 May - The Secret Life Of Pets 2


The original made over $875 million at the box office, so of course a sequel was on the way! We have it on good authority that the sequel is even funnier, with new cast additions including Patton Oswalt, Tiffany Haddish, Nick Kroll, and Indiana Jones himself, Harrison Ford!


Monday 27 May - Booksmart


In a fortnight of huge blockbusters, don't let this be the one that passes you by! A small-scale comedy directed by Ireland's own (kinda) Olivia Wilde, this sees two BFFs finish up high school and realise that they haven't had as much fun as they should've, so they both decide to party it up as much as they possibly can. Think of Superbad with a higher IQ and EQ, and you're on the right track.

Wednesday 29 May - Godzilla: King Of The Monsters


Early word on this one has it being the movie everyone wanted that first Godzilla movie to be, with huge action set-pieces that level entire portions of the planet. Some of the reviews are calling it the most fun movie of the summer. So, yeah, we're excited about this one...


Friday 31 May - Ma


Octavia Spencer is an actress we've known and loved in everything from The Help, Hidden Figures, and The Shape Of Water, but we're all going to be looking at her in a different light after this, as she plays a disturbed woman who focuses her evil intentions on a group of teenagers.
