Director: Taylor Sheridan Starring: Angelina Jolie, Aidan Gillen, Nicholas Hoult, Jon Bernthal, Medina Senghore, Finn Little Running Time: 100 minutes


Taylor Sheridan can dine out in Hollywood for some time to come still off the back of his Sicario script. The films that he’s gone on to direct – some good (Hell or High Water), some less so (Wind River) have struck a similar tone to that star-making work, serious but pulpy adult thrillers, simple stories of heists, hunts and murders that tried to ground themselves in real-American lives, the kind of stories of people struggling and suffering that you’d be as likely to see on John Oliver as on the big screen.

 

Sheridan’s latest Those Who Wish Me Dead is on the same page as those stories, but maybe comes in a paperback. It’s the kind of movie you used to get all the time in the 90s – your Peacemakers, your Paybacks, your Patriot Games – that relied on a few scenes of action and the wattage of a good star. Action thrillers, made for grown ups but not too high-brow. Those Who Wish Me Dead delivers this like a ready-meal, nothing mind-blowing but nice, filling and gets the job done, thanks to some strong storytelling from Sheridan and the draw of Angelina Jolie.

Nature, some might say, is healing. We have a long way to go before the Covid-19 pandemic can be described in the past tense – if ever – but here in Ireland, as time slowly starts to reshape into having the vaguest semblance of meaning, cinemas are set to reopen. Next Monday 7th June is the big date, with some chains taking bookings already, the IFI returning on the 10th, while the Light House Cinema will be back on the 25th.

 

If you’re feeling safe and ready to return to the cinema over the summer months though, the last year and a half of postponements and cancellations might have you wondering, what exactly is coming out anyway? We’re going to attempt to answer that, with a look ahead to some of the currently slated Irish releases in Summer 2021.
