Films of many shapes and sizes make up the cinematic year and fans of all genres are generally catered for.
Horror fans have had a particularly good time in 2022, and several notable blockbusters have demanded attention so far this year.
For those who enjoy spy thrillers, however, the curiosity of the movie has increased this September.
Of course, we are talking about Blackbird…

Blackbird is released in UK cinemas on Friday, 2 September 2022.
There’s no streaming release date yet so the big screen is the only place to watch the film at the moment.
Showtimes is currently offered by select cinema chains such as Showcase and Odeon.
The Passion Project was directed, produced, written and starred Michael Flatley, best known as the Irish-American dancer synonymous with shows like Riverdance and Lord of the Dance.
As for what to expect, Michael plays Victor Blakely, a secret agent codenamed Blackbird. He is the leader of a secret special forces unit called the Chieftains and faces many obstacles as the world of espionage unfolds.
‘We did it against the odds’
Michael recently spoke to The Sun about Blackbird and revealed how thrilled he is to see his film hit cinemas:
“It feels fantastic, I’m happy. If I told you how many people told me it was impossible, I would lose count. ‘You can’t. This is impossible.’ But somehow paradoxically we did it and I’m glad we did.
He added: “I’m happy and very proud that we have a lot of artists in it who have never had a chance and some young producers who are good.”
