There are four (and a bit, kind of) new movies arriving in Irish cinemas this week
A new horror, a new comedy, and a new family movie, and a big Oscar winner, all arriving on the big screen in the next few days.
If you've already watched (okay, deep breath) A Quiet Place Part II, Fast & Furious 9, Nobody, Supernova, Cruella, The Conjuring 3, Monster Hunter, In The Heights, The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard, The Father and In The Earth (phew!), then you'll be happy to know that there are still more big new releases landing in Irish cinemas this week.
In the long-standing tradition of body-swap comedies like Freaky Friday and The Change-Up, here we get two people magically forced into each other's bodies, except this time one of them is a wanted serial killer (initially Vince Vaughn) and one is his almost-victim (initially Kathryn Newton). The horror twist makes the whole thing feel like a breath of fresh air.
Freaky arrives in Irish cinemas on Friday, 2 July.

The eternally iconic Michelle Pfeiffer takes centre stage for this dramedy about an ageing socialite who finds herself about to be bankrupt, and forced to move into a small apartment in Paris with her young son (Lucas Hedges) and his cat.
French Exit will be available at select Irish cinemas from Friday, 2 July.

DAISY QUOKKA: WORLD'S SCARIEST ANIMAL
Much like last week's Dogtanian and the Three Muskahounds, this is a new animated arrival for families that may have already watched everything else available and need/want the kiddies distracted for a solid 90 minutes or so.

Winner of this year's Best International Feature Film at the Academy Awards, the movie sees a teacher (Mads Mikkelsen) and three of his teacher buddies take part in a social experiment in which they consume alcohol regularly every day, in order to see how it will impact their professional and personal lives.
Another Round will be available to watch in select cinemas around Ireland from Friday, 2 July.

So this is what we meant by the title of "and a bit, kind of". The latest edition into the MCU (and the first Marvel movie since Spider-Man: Far From Home) won't actually get into cinemas until later next week, but it is before the usual new movie arrival day of Friday, so here we are! Also, you can start booking your tickets for it right now.
Black Widow will arrive in Irish cinemas on Wednesday, 7 July, ahead of being made available on Disney+ with Premier Access from Friday, 9 July.
