Ev­ery­one’s favourite fam­ily of su­per­heroes re­turns to the Re­gent Pahiatua this week in the movie In­cred­i­bles 2.

He­len and Bob In­cred­i­ble, to­gether with their chil­dren Vi­o­let, Dash and baby Jack-Jack (whose in­cred­i­ble su­per­pow­ers are about to be dis­cov­ered) are off on an­other in­cred­i­ble adventure. This time He­len is out work­ing, leav­ing Bob at home to look af­ter the kids. But when a new vil­lain emerges, the fam­ily must find a way to work to­gether again — which is eas­ier said than done, even though they’re all In­cred­i­ble. In­cred­i­bles 2 opens at The Re­gent this Thurs­day.

For older au­di­ences the Re­gent is cur­rently screen­ing the ac­tion-com­edy Ocean’s 8, where ex-con Deb­bie Ocean (San­dra Bul­lock) along with an all-fe­male crew of “spe­cial­ists” are plan­ning an in­cred­i­bly dar­ing heist. The tar­get is a cool $150 mil­lion in di­a­monds — di­a­monds that will be around the neck of a world­fa­mous ac­tress who will be the star at­trac­tion at New York’s social event of the year, the Met Gala.

If you love na­ture, stun­ning scenery and have an adventurous spirit, you’ll love the movie Edie. Vet­eran English ac­tress Sheila Han­cock stars as an 83-year-old who finds her­self free from 30 years of care­giv­ing when her de­mand­ing, in­valid hus­band passes away. Af­ter mov­ing into a rest home she de­cides on a whim to ful­fil a life­long dream to climb the rugged Mount Suil­ven in Scot­land. With lo­cal camp­ing shop owner Johnny (Kevin Guthrie) as her guide, we watch this “odd cou­ple” talk, bicker and have fun as they re­veal more about their lives to each other. Edie is an in­spi­ra­tional story about the im­por­tance of fol­low­ing one’s dreams, no mat­ter how old you are. It opens at the Re­gent this Thurs­day.

Re­mem­bered as the writer of Franken­stein, the real life story of Mary Shel­ley is nearly as fan­tas­ti­cal as her book. Raised in 18th cen­tury Lon­don, Mary is a teenage dreamer de­ter­mined to make her mark in the world when she meets the dash­ing young poet Percy Bysse Shelly. So be­gins a tor­rid, bo­hemian love af­fair marked by both pas­sion and tragedy that will trans­form Mary and fuel the writ­ing of her gothic mas­ter­work. Mary Shel­ley opens July 26.

To end the month at the Re­gent the ‘King of Waltz’ An­dre´ Rieu re­turns to the big screen with his fa­mous Jo­hann Strauss Or­ches­tra, so­pra­nos, tenors and special guests. Recorded in the beau­ti­ful me­dieval town square in Maas­tricht in the Nether­lands, this year’s con­cert ti­tled: Amore´ — My Trib­ute to Love, may be his most ro­man­tic and spec­tac­u­lar con­cert ever to screen in cine­mas! An­dre´ Rieu’s 2018 Con­cert screens at the Re­gent on July 28 and 29.

Vet­eran Bri­tish ac­tress Sheila Han­cock stas as Edie.

An­dre´ Rieu presents his 2018 Maas­trcht con­cert Amore´ — My Trib­ute To Love.

The young Mary Woll­stonecraft is in­tro­duced to poet Percy Bysse Shel­ley in Mary Shel­ley.

Deb­bie Ocean and friends plan a $500 mil­lion di­a­mond heist in Ocean’s 8.

Mr In­cred­i­ble trys his hand at be­ing a house­hus­band in In­cred­i­bles 2.
