Bottoms buzz from critics and audiences across the Atlantic has been floating across to the UK, but we’ve been cursed for months by a lack of a UK release date. At last, the curse has ended: Bottoms will arrive in British cinemas on 3 November, bringing Rachel Sennott, Ayo Edebiri, Kaia Gerber and Nicholas Galitzine with it.

Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games trilogy was a massive success, which ushered in a new era of young adult action films (think Divergent, The Maze Runner, The Mortal Instruments), especially those led by women. Collins’ 2020 prequel The Ballad of Song Birds and Snakes will transport us to the Capitol, where we follow a young Cornelius Snow (later President Snow). With a killer ensemble cast (Peter Dinklage, Viola Davis, Hunter Schafer), it’s sure to be one of the year’s hottest movie releases.

Meanwhile, here are our favourite romantic films.
