"The Raid meets Tangled" plus 4 more movies & shows to watch this weekend
What could be 2022's biggest box office hit arrives this week...
Welcome to the first week of July! We've got a lot of new stuff to watch!
To kick things off, here are the movies which will all be available on the big screens around Ireland from Friday, 1 July.
MINIONS: THE RISE OF GRU
The sequel to the prequel. The first Minions movie (not to be confused with the first Despicable Me movie) puts the little yellow devils in the path of a young Gru, and this movie picks up from that, as we see the first steps of what will eventually become one of the world's greatest supervillains.
Back in 2015, Minions made $1.159 billion. This could do even better.
And now on to the stuff you can watch at home this week, starting with...
It is a fairytale as old as time... a princess turns down a marriage proposal from a cruel suitor, so she is kidnapped and kept in the top of a tower. The difference here is that the princess is also a warrior, so she begins the long battle to freedom. The Raid meets Tangled, basically.
The movie is available to watch on Disney+ from Friday, 1 July.
