Talk to Me (2023)


Danny Philippou and Michael Philippou direct this supernatural thriller that is set to arrive in theatres this week. The Australian film follows a group of teenagers whose frivolous attempt to conjure spirits through an embalmed hand goes completely awry. Without revealing much, Talk to Me promises to take you on an incredibly terrifying ride that brims with thrills, scares and a whole lot more.

Where to Watch: Theatrical (August 4)

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023)

James Gunn and Marvel Studios reunite on the much-anticipated third instalment of the Guardians of the Galaxy series. Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and Co. must take on a new set of adversaries and an entirely new and more imposing challenge. The series' veterans, Zoe Saldaña, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper (with his voice), etc. return with Will Poulter, Michael Rooker and others joining the cast.

Where to Watch: Disney+ Hostar (August 2)

Beau is Afraid (2023)

Ari Aster of Hereditary and Midsommar fame made the news for his alluring collaboration with Oscar winner Joaquin Pheonix. With Aster gaining prominence for his unorthodox filmmaking and Pheonix already well-known for his penchant to subvert audience's expectations, the film in question always seemed one to watch out for. Titled Beau is Afraid, the is a surreal tragicomedy that is nothing short of an odyssey, but perhaps not for the most faint-hearted. 

Where to Watch: Amazon Prime Video (Rental)

Poisoned: The Dirty Truth About Your Food

This searing documentary attempts to examine the danger posed by foodborne pathogens in the U.S. which, apparently, kill thousands of people in the country. The film takes an investigative approach through interviews featuring experts in the industry and also the victims' families to uncover the deadly truths behind the phenomenon.

Where to Watch: Netflix (August 2)

Mark Cavendish: Never Enough

Another promising documentary that traces the many highs and lows of legendary road racing cyclist Mark Cavendish. The film sheds light on several highlights of Cavendish's career, including his early days as a rider, his rise to prominence, the phase that saw his major downfall and also the stellar comeback that he made in the year 2021. With exclusive access to Mark Cavendish, the documentary boasts first-hand accounts of his vibrant life along with inputs from his wife and a few other close ones.

Where to Watch: Netflix (August 2)

Shiva Baby (2020)

Emma Seligman's delightful feature debut brims with humour, awkwardness and a whole lot of drama that unfolds remarkably in real-time and at one location. The film follows Danielle (Rachel Sennott), a bisexual woman, who must confront a most bizarre situation involving both her 'sugar daddy' and ex-girlfriend as she attends a funeral service along with her parents, relatives and judgemental relatives. Shiva Baby won praise from critics and was placed on various year-ending 'best of ' lists.

Where to Watch: Book My Show (August 4)

To Catch a Killer (2023)

An interesting spin on Jonathan Demme's classic The Silence of the Lambs, To Catch a Killer follows the troubled cop Eleanor Falco (Shailene Woodley) who is recruited by the FBI's top investigator Lammark (Ben Mendelsohn). The objective is to apprehend a dreaded sniper who is going around on a mass-shooting rampage but his unpredictable behaviour makes things rather difficult.
