Danger Close: The Battle of Long Tan: Australian film of 1966 Vietnam War battle in which just over 100 Anzac troops encountered a battle-hardened force at least 10 times their size.

Amazing Grace: The live recording of Aretha Franklin’s 1972 album Amazing Grace was filmed, but director Sydney Pollack had not used clapperboards, so post-production efforts to synchronise audio and video failed. Producer Alan Elliott bought the footage in 2007. Sound editor/mixer Serge Perron synchronised the sound and film, and Jeff Buchanan edited it down to 87 minutes. Legal action caused the film’s release to be postponed till the family of Franklin, after her death, allowed its release.

It: Chapter Two: James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader and Bill Skarsgard star in the sequel to It. Both movies are based on the 1986 novel It by Stephen King, with this one set 27 years after the events depicted in the first film.

Apollo 11: Documentary focusing on the 1969 Apollo 11 mission to the Moon. The film contains no voice-over narration or interviews beyond what was available in the contemporary source material.

Mia and the White Lion: Ten-year-old Mia develops a close attachment to a white lion cub, Charlie, born on the lion farm her family manage in South Africa. Three years later, Mia runs away, taking Charlie across the Savanna in search of safety.

Dan Carter: A Perfect 10: The personal story of All Black first five-eighth Dan Carter and the ups and downs of his rugby career.

The Kitchen: Three 1978 Hell’s Kitchen housewives whose husbands have been jailed take criminal matters into their own hands.

Blinded by the Light: Javed discovers the music of Bruce Springsteen and it speaks to him about his struggle to come to grips with life in his English home town and the rules of his traditional Pakistani home.

Angel Has Fallen: Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman star in the third instalment of the Fallen film series.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: Quentin Tarantino’s tribute to the final days of Hollywood’s golden age is set in 1969 Los Angeles, where an ageing television actor (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double and friend (Brad Pitt) navigate the changing film industry.

The Lion King: A photorealistic computer-animated remake of the traditionally animated 1994 film.
