Our film picks for Autumn and Winter

It’s been a while since we shared some of the films we’re looking forward to seeing over the coming weeks.  So I thought I would share some of the fantastic offerings coming up.

The first film on our list was released last week, The Book of Life.. The film follows a young man called Manolo.  Manolo is torn between following his heart and fulfilling his families expectations of him.  We’re taken on a journey which see’s Manolo facing his fears as he travels through three fantastical worlds.  The Book of Life has a Universal rating.

Our second film was released only a couple of days ago.  Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No good, Very Bad Day.  This is the latest family film from Disney and one even I can’t wait to see.  I certainly felt like I could star in this film at times but I think even my bad days can’t compare to the one that Alexander and his family experience! So join 11 year old Alexander and his family as their disastrous day unfolds.  Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No good, Very Bad Day is rated PG for parental guidance.


I was so excited when I discovered one of my childhood favourite characters was being brought to the big screen.  Paddington is a bear who grew up in the deep Peruvian jungle with his Aunt Lucy.  Having been inspired by an English explorer Aunt Lucy has brought Paddington up to believe that an exciting life can be found in London.  The film follows Paddington’s adventures in London where he meets the Brown Family.   Paddington is in cinemas from 28th November.

Up next we have Nativity 3 – Dude Where’s my Donkey?   If you enjoyed the first two films as much as we did then your going to love the latest offering.  Nativity 3 see’s Mr Poppy and the children of St Bernadette’s Primary School returning with more festive cheer.  On release from November 14th nationwide. 



Our last film is another festive offering … Days before Christmas reindeer are found running loose through the streets of London. Meanwhile 9 year old Tom is shocked to find Santa in the garden shed.  Santa has crash landed while test driving his new sleigh, he enlists Tom and his father Steve to help get him back to Lapland.  But what happens when Santa is arrested and thown into prison? Will Tom and Steve be able to break him out in time for Christmas?  (taken from film synopsis)   Get Santa is on release from 5th December in cinemas nationwide.


I hope our film picks have given you a taste of what’s to come and provided you with inspiration for family watching.
