The movies you should expect to see when Irish cinemas reopen on 7 June
We can practically smell that popcorn already!
It isn't 100% confirmed yet, but it does look like Irish cinemas will finally - FINALLY! - be reopening from Monday, 7 June.
While we wait for that confirmation, we're sure that cinemas up and down the country are putting together the finishing touches to their reopening schedules.
Based off what movies have opened in the UK, as well as the release dates for some of the movies in the next week or two, this is the most likely line-up of movies you can expect to see on the big screen once they've reopened here.
A QUIET PLACE PART II
Cillian Murphy joins Emily Blunt and the other survivors of the hit horror for this expansive sequel that drip feeds us more information about those vicious, sound-hating creatures, and the state of the world since its sudden and violent collapse.
THE CONJURING: THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT
Ed and Lorraine Warren back to head up their third outing as demonologists, this time tackling the true story behind the first ever recorded case of demon possession being used in a murder trial.

Yes, it is already available to watch on Disney+ with Premier Access, but we imagine there will be plenty of families out there who will want to make this their first big screen outing in months.
GODZILLA VS. KONG
It was made available on PVOD platforms back in March, but if there was ever a movie designed to be experienced on the biggest, loudest screen imaginable, then it is this punch-up between a big lizard and a big monkey.
Better Call Saul's Bob Odenkirk gets his own version of John Wick here, playing a retired hitman who is dragged back into action when his house is broken into.
PETER RABBIT 2
This was originally due for release riiiiiiiight around the time that cinemas closed the first time in March 2020, but the James Corden-voiced bunny is finally getting his sequel released. Another perfect family outing.
Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson star in this sorta-sequel, sorta-spin-off set in the world of those vicious Saw movies.
THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD
Angelina Jolie stars in this action-thriller from the folks behind Sicario and Hell Or High Water, playing a forest fire-spotter who goes on the run with a young boy who is the only witness to a terrible crime.
