Action-Packed Blockbusters

Strange World

The original action-adventure journeys deep into an uncharted and treacherous land where fantastical creatures await the legendary Clades, a family of explorers whose differences threaten to topple their latest, and by far most crucial mission. According to director Don Hall, Strange World is a nod to pulp magazines - popular fiction from the first half of the 20th century that was printed on inexpensive wood pulp paper. “I loved reading the old issues of pulps growing up,” says Don. “They were big adventures in which a group of explorers might discover a hidden world or ancient creatures. They’ve been a huge inspiration for Strange World.” Strange World is the must-see action-adventure film of the festive season. Streaming December on Disney+.


A fascinating and richly intricate tale that brilliantly weaves historical fact with fiction for a timely, cinematic experience, 20th Century Studios’ and New Regency’s original crime epic about three close friends who find themselves at the centre of one of the most shocking secret plots in American history.

The cast is stellar. Amsterdam stars Academy Award winner Christian Bale, two-time Oscar® nominee Margot Robbie, Mike Mysers, Rami Malek, Robert De Niro, Taylor Swift, and loads more! This is the perfect film to stick on to brighten up the 'what day is it?' slump between Christmas and New Years! Stream now on Disney+.
