Starting off with movies, this black comedy slasher follows a group of rich 20-somethings hanging out in a mansion where a party game winds up turning deadly.

After its premiere at South by Southwest earlier this year, Bodies Bodies Bodies currently has a very impressive 95% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

It also boasts a great cast - including Amandla Stenberg (The Hate U Give), Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm), Myha'la Herrold (Industry), Pete Davidson (SNL) and Rachel Sennott (Shiva Baby) - and comes from A24, the distributor and studio that has been involved with some of the best horrors of recent years like Hereditary and The Witch.

Bodies Bodies Bodies is out in the US on 5 August so you can expect an Irish release sometime after that.

A few weeks ago we wrote about a featurette for Jurassic World Dominion but now we have a new trailer, giving us a further glimpse of what happens when the series' dinos are no longer confined to an island.

Featuring the return of original Jurassic Park stars Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern and Sam Neill, this new sequel comes billed as "the culmination" of the franchise.

It is out in cinemas in Ireland on 10 June.

Last but not least, a trailer was released for the second season of comedy-drama Hacks just weeks after the first season of the critically-acclaimed show dropped in Ireland on Amazon Prime Video.

The very funny programme follows the professional relationship between a young comedy writer (Hannah Einbinder) and a legendary stand-up comedian (Jean Smart).

The second season of Hacks will see Lady Bird's Laurie Metcalf join the cast and will premiere in the States on 12 May.

An Irish release date has yet to be announced but hopefully Irish fans of the show won't have to wait too long to be able to watch the new episodes.
