There are four big movies arriving in Irish cinemas this week
One of them has an impressive 96% on Rotten Tomatoes.
You'd be forgiven for thinking that since the cinemas in Ireland only reopened last week, that there might be nothing new to arrive on the big screen this week.
But that, friends and readers, is incorrect. For while you can still enjoy the likes of A Quiet Place Part II, Cruella, The Conjuring 3, Nobody and more besides, the collection of movies below will be joining them in your local multiplexes this week.
THE HITMAN'S WIFE'S BODYGUARD
The sequel to the surprise 2017 action-comedy hit, we see Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson return as the bodyguard and the hitman respectively, but this time, Jackson's wife, played by Salma Hayek, is the prime target for a number of paid killers.
Morgan Freeman, Frank Grillo, and Antonio Banderas join the stacked cast.
Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard is in Irish cinemas right now.
IN THE HEIGHTS
Rocking a very impressive 96% on Rotten Tomatoes, this most-summery-of-movies will be a must-watch for fans of musicals, based on the hit play by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Hudes (our interview with whom you can see below!).
In The Heights arrives in Irish cinemas on Friday, 18 June.
Initially due for release in December 2020, this reunion of Milla Jovovich and director Paul W.S. Anderson after the Resident Evil movies puts them both back into another hit video game adaptation.
This time... well, everything is in the title... she hunts monsters!
Monster Hunter arrives in Irish cinemas on Friday, 18 June.

IN THE EARTH
Director Ben Wheatley (Kill List, Free Fire, High Rise) goes back to his horror roots with this pandemic-set thriller about a pair of scientists who go into the woods and discover some truly nightmarish evils within.
Uniquely unnerving and often very violent, this won't be for everyone, but those who enjoy off-kilter horror will likely love it.
In The Earth will be available to watch in select Irish cinemas from Thursday, 17 June.
