Film fans have faced much false hope in recent months, but long stretches spent waiting to get back in a cinema should soon be coming to an end.

But there’s a slew of blockbusters waiting in the wings for when we can return to multiplexes though.

Period drama Ammonite, starring Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan, will also get a cinema release from May 17 (you can currently rent it online), offering audiences the chance to admire its sweeping landscapes in a darkened room.

Audiences will finally get a chance to see Sir Anthony Hopkins’ Oscar-winning turn in The Father from June 11, as Florian Zeller’s adaptation of his acclaimed play reaches these shores.

June should also bring A Quiet Place II, the follow up to John Krasinski’s directorial debut, about a family forced to live in silence to hide from monsters, with Peaky Blinders star Cillian Murphy set to join Emily Blunt in the cast.

Disney will start to unleash some of its big hitters from May 28, when Cruella is released in cinemas and on Disney+ (for an additional fee with Premier Access) on the same day. It stars Emma Stone and tells the origin story of the dognapping villain from 101 Dalmatians.

Musical fans should be dancing in the streets in June with Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda’s earlier musical In The Heights finally arrives in cinemas.
