Serving as both a standalone sequel to Bumblebee (2018) and a prequel to the first 2007 film, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is the second post-Michael Bay-directed Transformers film.

Set in 1994 Brooklyn, Noah, an ex-military electronics expert, and Elena, an artifact researcher, are swept up in a three-way conflict between the Maximals, Predacons and Terrorcons as they aid Optimus Prime and the Autobots in a war to protect Earth from Unicron’s arrival.

The Blackening

Not a fan of all the action? Here’s a horror-comedy made to subvert every trope of black people in horror films.

The film interrogates the trope that the African-American character is often the first to die in horror movies by placing an all-Black group of friends at a cabin in the woods, where they are confronted with a masked killer who demands that they rank their degrees of blackness so that he can determine the correct order in which to kill them, and must rely on a combination of street smarts and their own knowledge of horror film tropes to survive.

The Flash

Riddled with controversies surrounding lead actor Ezra Miller, The Flash is the clear front-runner of movies you should see this month. The trailer is already hinting that the movie is based on the well received Flashpoint storyline from DC Comics, what is thought of by many as one of the best Flash stories. Warner Bros is clearly betting everything on The Flash saving the DC cinematic universe.

Worlds collide when the Flash uses his superpowers to travel back in time to change the events of the past. However, when his attempt to save his family inadvertently alters the future, he becomes trapped in a reality in which General Zod has returned, threatening annihilation. With no other superheroes to turn to, the Flash looks to coax a very different Batman out of retirement and rescue an imprisoned Kryptonian but not the one he’s looking for.

Are you tired of superhero films but still want to see some action? Surrounded is set to deliver the old school guns and horses. Guyanese-British actress Letitia Wright stars as Moses Washington in this Western Drama film.

Five years after the Civil War, freedwoman and former Buffalo Soldier Moses “Mo” Washington travels west to lay claim to a gold mine disguised as a man after her stagecoach is ambushed by a group of murderous thieves. Mo is forced to hold legendary outlaw Tommy Walsh captive while the remaining surviving passengers seek out help.
