Here is your first look at an absolutely bonkers Irish comedy

We're looking forward to this one.

We always get excited for upcoming Irish films and, in what looks to be one of the most bizarre Irish flicks of the last few years, this upcoming comedy has definitely raised our eyebrows and expectations.


Apocalypse Clown centres around, well, clowns during the apocalypse and, from the trailer, it looks like a lot of clownish fun.

Filmed in Dublin and Kildare, the comedy sees Ireland plunged into chaos after some sort of technological blackout. However, with the internet in flames, a ragtag group of clowns spot an opportunity to put clowning back on the menu, so they set out across the country to follow their dreams.

The trailer has plenty of laughs and we're really looking forward to what looks to be a very off-kilter comedy that features David Earle, who we last saw in the similarly off-kilter and hilarious Brian and Charles.

Apocalypse Clown comes cartwheeling in Irish cinemas on September 1.


Now for some more trailers, starting with...

Killers of the Flower Moon

We already got our first look at Martin Scorsese's extremely anticipated upcoming film a while ago, but this week we've got a greater insight into the plot and characters involved as the first proper trailer has dropped.


Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Lily Gladstone and Robert De Niro, Killers of the Flower Moon tells the story of a series of Oklahoma murders in the Osage Nation during the 1920s, committed after oil was discovered on tribal land.

The new trailer gives us a further glimpse into the conflicting relationships between De Niro's vicious William Hale, his nephew Ernest Buckhart (DiCaprio) and his love, Osage woman Mollie Kyle (Gladstone).

Killers of the Flower Moon arrives in Irish cinemas on October 20 before streaming on Apple TV+.


The Passenger

Blumhouse are known for their many terrifying, tension-filled flicks over the years and The Passenger looks to take that notorious tension and run with it.

Telling the story of Randolph, a quiet fast-food employee who must learn to survive after his co-worker snaps and goes on a murderous spree, taking him along for the ride.

The Passenger releases on VOD on August 4.


Kokomo City

This beautiful looking documentary comes from D. Smith, a trans woman who, after she transitioned, found her successful production career stalling and ended up homeless.

As she struggled for money and weighed up the possibility of sex work, Smith decided to document the lives of black trans sex workers as they confront the dichotomy between the black community and themselves.

With 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and a successful run at Cannes, this looks like it could be one of the most powerful documentaries of the year.

Kokomo City releases on August 4.

The Old Oak

Potentially Ken Loach's last ever film sees a pub landlord in a previously thriving mining community in County Durham struggling to keep his business open as the arrival of Syrian refugees spark tension in the community.

The Old Oak releases in cinemas on September 29.

Bob Marley: One Love

It was only a matter of time before we got a big-budget Bob Marley biopic and this week we got the first-look trailer at the upcoming film based on the musical legend's life.

Starring Kingsley Ben-Adir as the Rastafari icon, One Love is produced by his wife Rita (Who is played by Lashana Lynch in the film) and his children Ziggy and Cedella Marley, so it looks set to be a very accurate representation of the musician's storied life.

The film comes to cinemas in 2024.


Love him or hate him, Jack Whitehall stars alongside Shailene Woodley as a futuristic couple who are illegally using android doubles of themselves to live out their lives. Once the androids fall in love and decide to escape, all hell breaks loose.

The premise looks looks fresh and original for this sci-fi comedy flick. However, the 11% Rotten Tomatoes score doesn't bode well. Either way, Robots is now available on Prime Video.

Netflix does true crime very well and it looks like its sticking to its guns for this upcoming documentary about the notorious Mexican serial killer Juana Barraza, dubbed "The Little Old Ladykiller".

Mexico City in the 2000's is the backdrop to this astonishing story, which saw over 40 people killed and many failed arrests over years of investigation into the killer.

The Lady of Silence: The Mataviejitas Murders drops on Netflix on July 27.

The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart

Moving on to TV, this upcoming miniseries stars Sigourney Weaver as the owner of a flower farm who takes in her granddaughter (Alycia Debnam-Carey) after a mysterious fire killed her parents. Once there, the girl starts to unravel the mysterious secrets of her family's history. The trailer looks very intriguing and we're already dying to figure out the mystery of it all.

The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart releases on Prime Video on 4 August 2023.

Sex Education Season 4

The trailer for the final season of the award-winning Netflix comedy looks like it's set to go out with a bang. The critically-acclaimed series will focus this season on Otis and Eric as they face a new challenge: their first day at Cavendish Sixth Form College.

Sex Education bows out on Thursday, 21 September.
