Pinocchio           


Welcome back Movies1 fans! We’re up and running again now that release dates of films have settled down a bit and most cinemas are open once more. However, the distributors are still chopping and changing when they’re releasing some films so we can never be too sure what’s going to roll out and when.
For example, 007’s No Time to Die is now being released on November 13th and Quiet Place 2 is pencilled in for April 2021. And, of course, advanced screenings of these films haven’t happened for critics to see them Covid-19 has spoilt a lot of movie-going experiences for a long time but, hopefully, now that cinemas are open again, it’ll be back to normal. Well, not entirely "normal", as they are making a socially distanced comeback – but the films will be unchanged. We’ll keep an eye on them for you and we hope you’ll enjoy our reviews.
All the best from the Movies1 team.
