Top Picks for Teens
If your kids are anything like ours, going to the cinema is one of the only activities the teens will still do with us. So here are some of the films we have earmarked for ‘family time’.
Gemini Man – Release date 11th October
Fresh from his stint as the Genie in Aladdin, Will Smith returns to the silver screen in Gemini Man where he plays an over-the-hill hitman who faces off against a younger clone of himself. This looks like a classic action thriller with a dash of conspiracy thrown. But we do have to say that Will Smith always brings his all for whatever role he plays so it should be one of the better new films of the month.
Starring: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Will Smith, Clive Owen the film will be rated 12
Terminator: Dark Fate – Release date 23rd October
Look we know we’ve all been burned by Terminator films in the past but the original two are still some of the best action flicks ever so we live in hope that this one will manage to relive the heights of the past. In this instalment, Sarah Connor played a hybrid cyborg human that must protect a young girl from a newly modified liquid Terminator from the future. Linda Hamilton is back so that’s one big tick and James Cameron has returned as a writer so fingers crossed this can be a dark horse hit of the Autumn.
Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mackenzie Davis, Linda Hamilton the film will be rated 12
