3 Brilliant Female-Led Movies to Watch at VOX Cinemas

Get your tickets before they sell out.


The best films to watch at VOX Cinemas across the Middle East

The best movies to watch at VOX Cinemas across the Middle East this March

 

This month, VOX Cinemas brings with it a host of strong female-led movies you’ll not want to miss, as some of Tinsel town’s most anticipated films hit the big screen in the Middle East.

Now more than ever women in Hollywood are speaking out and calling for a much-needed shift in the entertainment industry. Empowering movements such as ‘Me Too’ and ‘Time’s Up’ have caused a stir and inspired victims of abuse and harassment to speak out. 

Female stars are finally being granted a higher platform (and hopefully paychecks to match) to star and produce in more movies within a safe, equal environment. 

Scroll below where we reveal the top three female-led movies you need to watch this March. 


I, Tonya

Margot Robbie, one of this year’s most celebrated actresses, not only stars in the lead role of skating biopic I, Tonya, but the talented actress also co-produced the picture. Following the rise and fall of notorious American figure skater Tonya Harding, the game-changing film caused waves in the industry upon release and earned the actress some recent accolades. 

A crowd favourite and big winner during this year’s awards season, the dark comedy also stars Allison Janney and Sebastian Stan. 

I, Tonya has released at VOX Cinemas this March.


Tomb Raider

After the incredible success of last year’s Wonder Woman, we hope this is a sign of more things to come in the world of female action stars. 

Tomb Raider has released at VOX Cinemas this March.

Blade Runner 2049

Picking up thirty years after the first film, a new blade runner LAPD officer K (Ryan Gosling) uncovers a deep secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into utter chaos.

Mother!

One of the most controversial films of the season, Mother! unites Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence with Bond baddie Javier Bardem in a tense psychological thriller about the unravelling of a couple’s relationship. On one level the story is simple – a woman renovating her home while her partner writes a book finds their tranquil existence threatened by the arrival of uninvited visitors. But as their relationship unravels into a harrowing tale of twisted devotion and sacrifice, critics have chosen to interpret the film as a commentary on anything from relationships to climate change. You will either love it or hate it, but you should definitely see it.

Release date: 19th October

IT

 The scariest film you will watch this year

A seriously creepy remake of the classic horror film, Stephen King’s IT tells the terrifying tale of a corrupt clown (played by the talented Bill Skarsgård) as he hunts a group of kids. The movie smashed industry records with the third largest opening weekend of 2017. However, be warned, you’ll need a manicure post movie if you are a nervous nail biter – it is certainly a tense watch.

With an all-star cast including Salma Hayek, Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L Jackson, and Gary Oldman, this action/comedy follows a top protection agent who must guard his mortal enemy, the world's most notorious hitman. Expect plenty of explosions, fight scenes and even a few laughs along the way.

The long-awaited new film from director Sofia Coppola (of Marie Antoinette and The Bling Ring fame) has finally hit the big screen.
