The Addams Family 2 (8 October)

2019's The Addams Family was a bit of a minor hit ($204 million off a $24 million budget), so a sequel was inevitable. The impressive voice cast, including Charlize Theron, Oscar Isaac, Chloe-Grace Moretz and Bette Midler, return for part two of their shenanigans.

Arracht (15 October)

The movie that Ireland put forward to be shortlisted for Best International Feature Film at last year's Oscars was so successful that it caught the eye of Hollywood producers for a big budget remake. The movie tells the story of a farmer in 1845 right as the Great Famine descends upon Ireland.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage (15 October)
