Great Productions – Family comedy and epic costume drama

“Sonic 2: Lightning Fast” directed by Jeff Fowler is the next installment of the adventures of the liked, blue hedgehog, which this time is going to prove that he can be a real hero. The opportunity to do so quickly arises when the villains plan to acquire an emerald with the power to destroy civilization. Sonic and his sidekick Tails set off on a journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands. A great dose of laughter and emotions will also be guaranteed by the excellent cast – Ben Schwartz, Tika Sumpter, Jim Carrey, James Marsden and Idris Elba.


“Wiking” is an epic story in which director Robert Eggers gathered a galaxy of acting stars. Young Prince Amleth (Alexander Skarsgård) is on the verge of becoming a man when his father (Ethan Hawke) is brutally murdered by Uncle Fjolnir (Claes Kasper Bang) and his mother, Princess Gudrún (Nicole Kidman), kidnapped. Escaping from his kingdom by boat, the child vows revenge. Two decades later, Amleth is a Viking invading Slavic villages, where a certain witch (Björk) reminds him of his oath: to avenge his father, save his mother, kill his uncle. Traveling on a slave ship to Iceland, Amleth enters her uncle’s farm with the help of Olga (Anya Taylor-Joy), a captive Slavic woman – and sets off to keep her oath.

Nicolas Cage, who plays himself, and Benedict Cumberbatch in a comedy role

“The Unbearable Weight of Great Talent” is a crazy action comedy in which a true cinema legend takes on the role of himself. Movie star Nicolas Cage (played by Nicolas Cage) is drowning in debt. To get out of them, he accepts an unusual but lucrative offer from his wealthy admirer – Javi Gutierrez. He is to be the guest of honor at his birthday party in a luxurious mansion. So it promises to be exhilarating fun and nothing foreshadows trouble. But when US secret agents roll into the game and make Cage an offer he can’t refuse, things get complicated.

“The crazy world of Louis Wain” tells the incredible story of the life and work of an eccentric artist who infected all of England with his love for cats, and in time the whole world. Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr Strange, Sherlock) will star in one of the most interesting roles in his career. The Oscar-nominated actor on the big screen is partnered by the serial portrayal of Queen Elizabeth II Claire Foy, the creator of the global hits “Jojo Rabbit” and “Thor: Ragnarok” – Taika Waititi and the dark rock icon, musician and composer – Nick Cave. “Louis Wain’s Crazy World” is a heart-warming, sensual story about love, madness, unfettered imagination and an amazing talent of a man who – like no one before him in history – knew and understood … how to paint a cat. When some of his works are published in the press, true cat madness breaks out in England, and overnight Wain finds his way across the country. In the face of fame and popularity, for which he was not ready, would he manage to deal with the pressure, the dark side of genius and what fate would bring him?

The final premiere of the weekend is the animated story of Ari Folman, the creator of the Oscar-nominated anti-war “Waltz with Bashir”, the film “Where is Anne Frank”. Made on the basis of the comic book by Folman and David Polonsky, also published in Poland, the film will delight children, parents and every lover of wise animation. It is an extremely up-to-date story about the fact that everyone deserves respect and has the right to a dignified life and a safe home. In the Polish language version, the characters are voiced by Maja Ostaszewska and Maciej Stuhr. The starting point for Ari Folman’s animation is “The Diary of Anne Frank”, one of the most important testimonies of the Holocaust. Anne, a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl hiding in Amsterdam, addressed her notes to her invisible friend, Kitty. In Folman’s film, Kitty leaves the pages of the book to find Anne in Amsterdam from the near future. And he discovers that although every second hospital, bridge or school is named after the author of war memoirs, the city is still full of prejudices and people who have to hide. The final shape and message of the film was influenced by the refugee crisis of 2015, which dispelled the illusion that war, flight and exclusion are experiences forever locked in museums and in history textbooks. It is a deeply humanistic film calling for help for the weaker, tolerance and solidarity with every person in need.

On the weekend of 23 and 24 April, 11 Cinema City cinemas will host pre-premiere screenings of the horror movie “X”, which premiere is scheduled for the end of April. Set in a secluded house somewhere in Texas, strange hosts hosting a group of young filmmakers, scary fiction that turns into reality – it all adds up to an electrifying horror movie worth watching.
