Despicable Me 3, Spider-Man Homecoming and Wonder Woman lead Sky Cinema Premiere’s new additions this March.
There’s another huge month of premieres on Sky Cinema Premiere this March.
It’s all going on in Despicable Me 3. Felonious Gru (voiced, as ever, by Steve Carell) and wife Lucy (Kristen Wiig) quickly get the boot from crime-fighting group the Anti-Villain League when they botch their pursuit of one Balthazar Bratt (South Park’s Trey Parker), an 80s child star who goes about his nefarious ways while rocking shoulder pads and a keytar gun. Still, there’s no time for licking wounds. When news filters through that Gru has a long-lost twin brother – Carell puling double duty – it’s time to ship off to Freedonia for a family reunion. Minions team Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda direct.
Spider-Man 3 Homecoming is also swinging on to the screens of SKY and NOW TV customers. What a homecoming. Charming, fleet-footed and frequently hilarious, this latest take on the web-slinging do-gooder is a supremely entertaining superhero caper that gets the look, tone and feel just right. Directed by Cop Car’s Jon Watts and starring the excellent Tom Holland, it shows a teenage Spidey/Peter Parker still getting to grips with his powers, and just about everything else. There are lovely little touches everywhere you look (a government-funded gym video voiced by a now ex-communicated Avenger among the many standouts), with the hit rate staying high even after the stakes are upped and Michael Keaton’s mech suit-wearing Vulture enters the fray
The DC Extended Universe well and truly delivers with Wonder Woman, as Gal Gadot suits up for an origins story that overfloweth with screwball fun and throwback charm. Gadot reprises her role as Diana Prince (aka… well, you know), although instead of palling around with Supes and the Caped Crusader she’s living peacefully on the hidden island of Themyscira. She and her tribe of Amazonian warrior women – including mum Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen) and aunt Antiope (Robin Wright) – are oblivious to the Great War raging in the world of men, but all that changes when dashing US pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) comes crashing into their lives. Time to break out the Lasso of Truth…
Other premieres in March include Baby Driver, Cars 3 and Transformers: The Last Night.
