Here are the new cinema releases, which will all be available on the big screens around Ireland from Friday, 10 September.

MALIGNANT

James Wan knows horror. He's the guy who brought us Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring Universe! So when he decides that he wants to keep his cards close to his chest, we'll allow it, because he's already got our attention by telling us he's giving us a new horror. All we know so far is that it involves a woman (Annabelle Wallis) who is plagued by visions of grizzly murders, only to discover they might actually be happening in real life...

COPSHOP

Imagine if Quentin Tarantino decided to remake Assault On Precinct 13, and you're more or less there. A man on the run (Frank Grillo) gets himself purposefully arrested by a young police officer (Alexis Louder) in order to be securely locked up, only to find himself sharing a jail cell with the very man (Gerard Butler) who has been assigned to kill him.

Check out our interview with Butler and Louder right here:

One of the best Irish films in recent years, it revolves around a single mother (Claire Dunne) who can't get a proper foot on the property ladder, so decides to tackle the problem in a very unique manner. Co-stars include Conleth Hill (Game of Thrones), Ian Lloyd Anderson (Dublin Oldschool) and Harriet Walter (Succession).

AMERICAN HORROR STORIES

And finally, the amazingly exciting Pizza And A Movie section...

Here are this week's picks, with the vote once again going up on JOE's Instagram channel, so keep an eye out on that to have your say!

Rory's Pick - THE TRUMAN SHOW

The movie that made us all realise that Jim Carrey could actually ACT, it is crazy how prescient this story has turned out to be. In a world where we have all become somewhat obsessed with reality TV, The Truman Show is the ultimate reality TV show, albeit one which gets across the humour, the heartbreak and the endurance of the human spirit.

The Truman Show has been added to Netflix this week.

Eoghan's Pick - WALK THE LINE

Reece Witherspoon picked up the Best Actress Oscar for her turn as June Carter in this biopic that looks at the tumultuous relationship she had with Johnny Cash, here played by Joaquin Phoenix. One of the best biopics of recent years, and an absolute must-watch for fans of the genre (and the music!).

Walk The Line has been added to Disney+ this week.
