Cineworld Secret Screening 7 – Possible Films

Not too long after Secret Screening 6 which turned out to be a very good preview of Molly’s Game we have the 7th Unlimited Secret Screening at Cineworld!

secret-screening-branded-2_zpszlrrdwja

Screening Type: 2D, Unlimited Preview
Date/time: Tuesday 13th March 2018 at 20:00
Runtime: 90 mins
Rating: TBC

Remember that it does not have adverts and only trailers so if you leave it 20-30 minutes you will miss the start of the film!

As usual I thought I would attempt to guess the possible films it would be, not going to look at the time or anything this time as Molly’s Game showed that it really didn’t matter at all. I am determined to have the film in my guesses at least once! Again they have put down 90 minutes, which we know doesn’t really matter at all! The rating caused problems last year when it was announced the film was a 15 so some people couldn’t take their kids!

Anyway let’s have a look at the possible film we could be watching . . .

Trailer: Ready Player One (2018)

The concept for this film certainly looks like a very interesting one when you think about how many people play computer games and are consumed by them. Even smaller games on an iPad/tablet are now extremely addictive and you can find hours suddenly disappearing.

Directed by Steven Spielberg it is certainly going to be a very interesting ride!
