Spider-Man: No Way Home

In this highly anticipated chapter, Spider-Man's identity is revealed for the first time. With his reputation now on the line and his life more complicated than ever, Peter Parker seeks the help of Dr. Strange in the hope he can help restore his identity with a magical solution. Unfortunately, their attempts go wrong and they accidently break open the multiverse, the world of alternative realities. Supervillains who had previously fought Spider-Man return to finally seek vengeance and Peter must gather all his strength if he is to save the world from what could be a catastrophic ending. This fast-paced sequel will undoubtedly thrill Spider-Man fans and newcomers alike.

The Story of Film: A New Generation

Drawing on both contemporary and historical titles from all around the world, showing how they link together, this documentary is both accessible and challenging for those interested in studying the language of cinema. It looks at the changes which have arrived in the last decade, from technological advancements off-screen to the new characters, worlds, and breaking down of barriers on it. Cousins' epic film essay interrogates which titles have expanded upon those which have come before, pushing conventions and showing a new way of doing things, as well as those films which have re-written the rules altogether.
