Teen Titans Go! To the Movies | In Cinemas 13 September 2018
When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big! Teen Titans GO! to the Movies finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza—a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers.
It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously Super-Villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!
Running time: 88 mins
Director: Aaron Horvath, Peter Rida Michail
Cast: Kristen Bell, Tara Strong, Will Arnett
Smallfoot | In Cinemas 20 September 2018
An animated adventure for all ages, with original music and an all-star cast, Smallfoot turns a myth upside down when a bright young yeti finds something he thought didn’t exist—a human.
News of this “smallfoot” throws the simple yeti community into an uproar over what else might be out there in the big world beyond their snowy village, in an all-new story about friendship, courage and the joy of discovery.
Running time: 86 mins
Director: Karey Kirkpatrick
Deadly Dinosaurs | Steve Backshall | In cinemas 20 September 2018
Award-winning wildlife presenter Steve Backshall is on the hunt for the most deadly animals to have walked the earth: dinosaurs.

Razor-sharp claws, axe-like heads and giant whipping tails are hunted down in the quest to find the world’s top Triassic terror. Think you know dinosaurs? Think again.
Running Time: 90 mins
The House with a Clock in Its Walls | In Cinemas 20 September 2018
In the tradition of Amblin classics where fantastical events occur in the most unexpected places, Jack Black and two-time Academy Award® winner Cate Blanchett star in The House with a Clock in Its Walls, from Amblin Entertainment. The magical adventure tells the spine-tingling tale of 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart.

Based on the beloved children’s classic written by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey, The House with a Clock in Its Walls is directed by master frightener Eli Roth and written by Eric Kripke (creator of TV’s Supernatural).
