Silver Screen Weekly - What's Coming Up At The Cinema From Friday 29th March

Our film critic and media correspondent has been looking and trawling the new releases. Here's what you can see on the big screen this week.

From Friday 29th March

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire (12a)

Prepare yourselves for a new empire in the MonsterVerse! After almost destroying each other in their previous encounters, a new ancient deadly force from the depths of Hollow Earth emerges, forcing legendary Titans Godzilla and Kong to uneasily unite to save not only the order among all the Titans but the entire world. Director Adam Wingard's (Godzilla vs. Kong) new entry in the MonsterVerse is an exciting, bone-crunching, spectacle, which also has an emotional element to its story, as we see these legendary monsters of the big screen join forces for the first time ever, in a tribute to the monster mashing joys found in the kaiju cinema of old. Prepare yourselves for a monster-filled battle royal! Co-starring Rebecca Hall, Dan Stevens and Brian Tyree Henry.
