AFTER TAKING a break from writing the last article I am all refreshed and ready to give you your next fortnightly Big Picture!

We have quite a few action-packed films coming up for UK release throughout October and as we creep closer to Halloween the next set of films are bound to set an ominous tone!

With an all-star cast and some solid performances led by Jeff Bridges, Chris Hemsworth, Jon Hamm, Dakota Johnson and Cynthia Erivo, Bad Times at The El Royale (15) sees seven strangers, each with a secret to bury, meet at Lake Tahoe’s El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past.

Over the course of one fateful night, everyone will have a last shot at redemption, before everything goes to hell. This one looks juicy and packed full of thrills so what are you waiting for? Bad Times at The El Royale is released in UK cinemas October 12.

This year has been packed full of Halloween treats at the cinema with some fantastic horrors, but it doesn’t stop there!

It’s been 40 years since Laurie Strode survived a vicious attack from crazed killer Michael Myers on Halloween night. Locked up in an institution, Myers manages to escape when his bus transfer goes horribly wrong. Laurie now faces a terrifying showdown when the masked madman returns to Haddonfield, but this time, is she ready for him?

Find out from the October 19 when the eleventh installment in the Halloween franchise is released.

After their six-time Academy Award winning success, La La Land, Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling team up again for First Man (12a) landing in to cinemas on the October 12.

First Man looks at the story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961 to 1969. A deep, first-person account, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the movie explores the sacrifices and the cost, on Armstrong and on the nation, of one of the most dangerous missions in history.

Our next Keighley Film Club screening is Lies We Tell (15). When his billionaire boss Demi dies, chauffeur Donald is given one final job, to wipe out any evidence of Demi’s relationship with his mistress, the enigmatic and beautiful Amber.

Donald’s task soon unravels when Amber’s life is threatened, and he finds himself her reluctant protector. Unwittingly drawn into a dangerous urban underworld, he encounters dark, harrowing practices and a sinister underworld figure who will test him to his very limits.

Filmed locally in West Yorkshire with locations including the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, I’m sure you don’t want to miss this one! It will be screened for one night only on Sunday, October 21 at 5.35pm.

All Keighley Film Club screenings are open to the public, although there are some great benefits to joining: enquiries can be made at the cinema or the Film Club website.
