Movie fans will be itching to get back to the cinema as they reopen this week – but what will they choose to watch?

We have put together a list of what’s on offer on the big screen from today and for the coming weeks.

There will still be measures in place to ensure safety at cinemas as we continue to ease our way out of lockdown, including reduced capacity for screenings, staggered start times and some chains such as Odeon opting to go cashless for the time being.

Below is a list of some of the films due to be released as cinemas reopen with a mix of classics and new releases.

A few favourites from award season:

Nomadland

Minari

Steven Yeun and Yeri Han are Jacob and Monica Yi, an immigrant Korean couple who relocate from California to a large plot in the Ozarks with “the best dirt in America”. For Jacob, it’s his dream – the chance to escape the monotony of sexing chickens for a living and to make something of himself.

Sound of Metal

Ruben (Riz Ahmed) is the drummer in a punk-metal duo with girlfriend Lou (Olivia Cooke). When he begins to intermittently lose his hearing, his musical life seems over. At Lou’s insistence, he reluctantly enters a retreat for the deaf that means giving up his true passion.
