The countdown to the release of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is now on and once again Sony have teased us with this sizzle reel that shows what the cast have been up to around the world. Featuring the voices of Nicolas Cage (Face/Off, Gone In 60 Seconds), Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, Ender’s Game), Liev Schreiber (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Spotlight) and Jake Johnson (Jurassic World, The Mummy) this is the film that has the whole comic book universe talking at the moment.

 

Lido on the Roof returns for its fourth year this year lighting up the rooftop of the beloved Glenferrie Road cinema. Its spring and summer film program showcases the most hotly anticipated new release films, as well as a film lovers’ selection of retro classics.

With its well-stocked rooftop bar and extended trading hours, the Lido Rooftop is an irresistible choice as a meeting spot for friends to enjoy a drink and watch the sunset colour the surrounding Hawthorn skyline, before catching a film on the big screen – either on the Roof, or in one of the indoor cinemas. The bar is open to anyone who has purchased a movie ticket.

The program launches with the electrifying Bohemian Rhapsody, chronicling the years in the lead up to legendary rock band Queen’s appearance at the 1985 Live Aid concert. Rami Malek (Mr Robot) has transformed himself into a jaw-droppingly accurate portrayal of Freddie Mercury for the film, helmed by director Bryan Singer (X-Men series). Catch Rooftop screenings until Tuesday 6 November.

Blockbuster movie-lovers and arthouse cinephiles alike will be spoilt for choice during the holiday season. The next title in the Harry Potter universe, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald starts its Rooftop season on 15 November; Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Ralph Breaks the Internet will be alternating nights during the week commencing Thursday 13 December; and Mary Poppins Returns floats down to the Rooftop on New Year’s Day.

Advance screenings for the darkly disturbing Suspiria directed by Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name, A Bigger Splash) take place on Friday 2 and Sunday 4 November. A fresh interpretation of Dario Argento’s 1977 horror masterpiece, Suspiria stars Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, and Chloë Grace Moretz, with music composed by Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke.

Joel Edgerton’s next turn behind the lens comes with a powerful story about a boy sent to gay conversion camp, called Boy Erased, screening on the Rooftop from 9 November; Step Brothers dynamic duo Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly team up again in Holmes & Watson, from Friday 28 December; and horror fans will delight in the arrival of director Jennifer Kent’s (The Babadook) new film, The Nightingale, which was shot in Tasmania and recently won the Special Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival. It screens on the Rooftop from Thursday 24 January.

Alongside all the exciting new releases, there’s a whole pick ‘n’ mix of retro gems in the Lido Rooftop program for movie fans, young and old. Costumes are crucial for the House of Capulet party screening of Baz Luhrmann’s iconic sun-drenched, star-crossed love story Romeo + Juliet on Wednesday 7 November, the high school reunion screening of Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion on Wednesday 28 November and relive your childhood with a special screening of Matilda played on ex-rental VHS on Wednesday 16 January.

It’s not just Charli XCX and Troye Sivan who are feeling nostalgic for 1999. Lido on the Roof will be taking things back to a stellar year for teen-rom-coms with its Teen Dream series, featuring She’s All That (Wed 6 Feb), Drive Me Crazy (Wed 20 Mar), and Never Been Kissed (Wed 3 Apr).

Action movie fans will bust a bicep over the SchwarzeMega Marathon on Wednesday 5 December; kids will squeal over classics like The Nightmare Before Christmas (Wed 12 Dec), Matilda (Wed 16 Jan), and The Lion King (Wed 23 Jan); and 80s film fans will flip out over Die Hard (Wed 19 Dec), Labyrinth (Wed 9 Jan), Purple Rain (Wed 30 Jan), Big(Wed 20 Feb), Beverly Hills Cop (Wed 6 Mar), and Risky Business (Wed 13 Mar).

An extra thrilling addition to the program for genre film fans is the inaugural Paracinema Fest, happening over four days from Thursday 29 November to Sunday 2 December. The full program is yet to be revealed, however some appetite whetting early announcements include Terminal starring Margot Robbie and Simon Pegg; the Christmas zombie apocalypse flick Anna and the Apocalypse; and the next bizarrely hilarious film from the creators of The Greasy Strangler (2016), An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn starring Aubrey Plaza, Jemaine Clement, Craig Robinson, and Emile Hirsch.

It’s going to be another glorious summer of cinema under the stars at Lido on the Roof.

Stan will exclusively premiere DEUTSCHLAND86, the sequel to the international award-winning historic spy thriller DEUTSCHLAND83, on October 20, with new episodes premiering weekly. 

Created by Anna Winger and Jörg Winger, Deutschland86 picks up with Martin Rauch (Jonas Nay), his Aunt Lenora (Maria Schrader) and their colleagues at the East German foreign intelligence agency (HVA) three years after DEUTSCHLAND83. Abandoned by Moscow and desperate for cash, the East German leadership pushes their secret operatives to experiment with global capitalism and save their sinking socialist ship. Long banished to Africa for his sins in 1983, Martin Rauch is now sent back into the field. Dark deals and a dangerous mission lead him to South Africa, Angola, Libya, Paris, West Berlin and finally back to East Berlin, where he must make an impossible decision.

Our hero’s journey plays out to a soundtrack of international pop music – against a backdrop of Perestroika, proxy Cold Wars, the struggle to end Apartheid, a year of terror in Western Europe, and the creeping feeling back home in East Germany, that the end just might be near.

1986: East Germany is broke, Perestroika is real, terrorism plagues Europe, the AIDS crisis intensifies and the struggle against apartheid rages on. Banished for his sins in 1983, Martin Rauch wallows in limbo until his Aunt Lenora conscripts him into her plan to drum up hard currency abroad. They set off on an adventure through Africa, Western Europe and finally home to East Germany. Can mafioso-style Capitalism save Communism just in the nick of time?

Directed by Florian Cossen (Das Lied In MirNSU / Die Ermittler – Nur Für Den Dienstgebrauch) and Arne Feldhusen (StrombergDer Tatortreiniger), DEUTSCHLAND86 will see the return of cast members Jonas NayMaria SchraderSylvester GrothVladimir BurlakovLudwig TrepteAlexander BeyerCarina Wiese and Sonja Gerhardt. They will be joined this season by Anke Engelke (Ladykracher), Fritzi Haberlandt (Erbsen Auf Halb 6), Lavinia Wilson (Schoßgebete) and Florence Kasumba (Black Panther, Emerald City).

Executive Producers are Anna Winger, Jörg Winger, Sebastian Werninger and Ulrike Leibfried. Directors of Cinematography are Matthias Fleischer (Heidi) and Kristian Leschner (4 Könige).

DEUTSCHLAND86 is an UFA FICTION production in cooperation with Amazon Germany and Fremantle, supported by the German Motion Picture Fund, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, Creative Europe Media – MEDIA Programme of the European Union and the Department of trade and industry South Africa.

The first season of the series – DEUTSCHLAND83 – won numerous accolades, including an International Emmy, Peabody Award, Adolf Grimme Award and Golden Camera award in Germany. Jonas Nay won the 2016 Golden Nymph for Best Actor at the Festival de Television in Monte Carlo, as well as the German Television Award for his portrayal of Martin Rauch.

 

DEUTSCHLAND86 will premiere on OCTOBER 20, exclusively on Stan

DEUTSCHLAND83 is currently streaming on Stan
