It may be surprising to hear that there are hundreds of slots based on blockbuster movies out there. Superheros, chick flicks, outrageous comedies - they all have some presence in the world of online gambling. These games usually feature top tier production values - and can sometimes even feature clips from the movie. This allows fans to experience their favourite silver screen moments in a new format. But what are the best movie themed slots to look out for? Let's take a look.

Planet of the Apes

2011 saw a new age for the Planet of the Apes franchise. After the run of 70s movies - the monkey business returned for a modern reimagining. The critically acclaimed Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes are fused together in a brilliant slot by NetEnt. This game features a unique dual reel design with two free spins bonus rounds. And like all good movie slots, you will find members of the cast as symbols on the reels.


Chick flicks have somewhat of a bad name - certainly in terms of quality. But 2011's heartwarming film Bridesmaids turned the corner for the genre. Filled with hilarious moments - the slot captures the humour of the film - and all the zany characters. It's lacking in actual clips - but once you have had a spin, you may want to reach for your nearest blu-ray player.

The Dark Knight

The Dark Knight (2008) is one of the best superhero films ever made. Thanks to a legendary performance from the late Heath Ledger, this film has grossed over $1 billion worldwide. It's no surprise then that Microgaming made a slot soon after. However, the license did switch hands in subsequent years. Playtech acquired the rights to DC content in 2017. And they created a new online slot game the following year which features four jackpot prizes. Gotham's edgiest hero has never looked better in a slot game.


Crammed full of clips and thematic bonuses, Robocop is one of the greatest film based slots ever made. It features the same grit and style as the classic 1980s film. There's even a bonus round which sees you taking down thugs - just like that amazing moment from the film. Watch out for the ED-209 - which can take over the three central reels as a super-sized wild symbol.
