Best Chess Movies

Chess has played a part of many major block-busters over the time, from Harry Potter to X-Men, but there have also been a number of great pure chess movies over the years and we wanted to list our favorites!

Magnus (2016)

From child prodigy to chess genius. Magnus is a documentary about the reigning chess world champion Magnus Carlsen is coming out later this year. We are all very excited to see this movie tell the full story behind the reigning Chess World Champion and see some behind the curtains material.
