Haunted house horror movies are ten a penny, but this film about introverted teen bonding with a neighbour as they investigate the house that has a history of death and hauntings, looks like it manages to inject something new into a crowded subgenre, meaning that I am quite excited about seeing how they have managed it.

300: Rise of an Empire
As a sequel to the 2007 film 300, Rise of an Empire takes place before, during and after the first movie, depicting the battle between the Greek city states and the Persian Empire, sticking with the highly stylized film making technique that made the first one so influential, I loved the first one, so more of that can’t be bad.
