Many of the biggest blockbusters this year have been delayed in light of COVID-19, but now VOX Cinemas UAE has announced the grand return of new major releases in cinemas.
The popular cinema-chain has revealed the release dates for upcoming blockbusters that were previously delayed, and advanced tickets to Christopher Nolan’s time-bending Tenet now available.
VOX Cinemas’ upcoming list of new releases will kick off with Peninsula today (Thursday August 20), the sequel to the hit Korean zombie thriller Train to Busan.
Then on Thursday August 27, the hugely-anticipated Tenet will hit the big screen. Not only will the espionage thriller starring John David Washington and Robert Pattinson be released after many delays, but it will launch ahead of the US, meaning UAE audiences to be one of the first to see the movie.
As for September, audiences can expect to see Disney’s live-action Mulan on Friday September 4, along with the third instalment in Matthew Vaughan’s spy franchise, The King’s Man on Thursday September 17.
That’s not all, as Wonder Woman 1984 will be released on October 1, murder mystery Death on the Nile on October 22, and the final return of Daniel Craig as James Bond in No Time To Die on November 19.
“After several months of speculation and delays, I’m excited to announce that blockbusters are back at VOX Cinemas and unveil our impressive slate of must-see movies,” said Chief Executive Officer of Majid Al Futtaim Cinemas and Majid Al Futtaim Leisure and Entertainment Cameron Mitchell.
“The cinema industry like most industries, has been massively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 48 percent of the world’s cinema screens are now re-open, and we look forward to rebuilding our industry blockbuster by blockbuster starting this week.”
Mitchell adds: “There is a real pent-up demand for new releases and, with major tentpoles such as Tenet about to hit our theatres, we’re expecting a significant increase in box office sales.”
So, hungry for some popcorn and big blockbusters? Advanced tickets for Tenet, along with a special screening of Inception, are currently on sale for VOX Cinemas in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah and Sharjah.
The silver screen is back in town, folks.
