Travis Fimmel, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi and  Charlie Plummer are the stars of Lean On Pete, an Andrew Haig directed adventure / drama about a teenager who befriends fading racehorse, Lean on Pete.

I’m interested in this movie mainly because I want to learn more about the impracticalities of having a pet horse sans stable/ barn. If something else about the movie ends up resonating with me, then great.

Amy Seimetz, Ayanna Berkshire, Steve Zahn and Thomas Mann also star.

Lean On Pete Release Dates: February 16th, 2018, (UK); March 30th, 2018 (US)…

ALITA – BATTLE ANGEL (2018): New Trailer From Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Eiza González, Rosa Salazar…

Directed by Robert Rodriguez, co produced by James Cameron and starring Christoph Waltz, Rosa Salazar, Jennifer Connelly and Eiza González, Alita – Battle Angel is an action-packed story. One set several centuries in the future and about hope, love plus empowerment.

The protagonist played by Salazar is a young woman’s journey to discover the truth of who she is and her fight to change the world…

Nice trailer. How absolutely beautiful was that moment when Ed Skrein’s character got smashed? I just can’t wait to see all the visual effects come together.

I’m going to confess that as soon as I saw James Cameron’s name, I couldn’t help but think ‘So this is why the next Avatar movie is delayed?’ I’m quite sure that’s nonsense but you understand.

Another thought that crossed my mind is, ‘Why do Alita’s eyes have to be so large?’ Perhaps it’s explained in the manga series that I’ve never read. Perhaps.

Michelle Rodriguez, Jackie Earle Haley, Ed Skrein and Jorge Lendeborg Jr. also star.

Alita – Battle Angel Release Dates: July 20th, 2018 (UK & US)…

Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Jeff Goldblum are back in the J.A. Bayona directed Jurassic World – Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to Jurassic World (2015).

New breeds that are more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before are to be expected…

I’m in for the special effects, what else?

The new Avengers – Infinity War trailer is finally here and it’s oh, so thrilling.

Directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo; the stars of this next outing from Marvel Studios include Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Brie Larson, Chris Evans, Chris Pratt…

I’m in to see how well this movie comes together considering the exceptionally high number of key Marvel characters. I’m also curious since I wasn’t completely in love with Avengers – Age Of Ultron (2015).

Chris Hemsworth, Elizabeth Olsen, Vin Diesel, Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson also star.

Avengers – Infinity War Release Dates: April 27th, 2018 (UK); May 3rd, 2018 (US)…

Incredibles 2, the long awaited sequel to the 2004 animated action /adventure by Disney Pixar, The Incredibles (2004) is finally coming.

Featuring the voices of Samuel L. Jackson, Holly Hunter and John Ratzenberger, Craig T. Nelson (Mr. Incredible) is left to care for Jack-Jack while Helen (Elastigirl) is out saving the world, of course…

I’ve definitely forgotten most of what happens in the first movie. Thirteen long years can do that to a person. The cuteness and harmless animated fun is why I’ll be watching the new movie and re-watching the first. Everyday can’t be Deadpool day, you know. Plus Jack-Jack laughs just like a little baby I know.

Written and directed by Brad Bird; Huck Milner, Sarah Vowell and Craig T. Nelson also star.

Incredibles 2 Release Dates: June 15th, 2018 (US); July 13th, 2018 (UK)…

RAMPAGE (2018): New Trailer From Dwayne Johnson, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Naomie Harris…

Starring Rampage Dwayne Johnson, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Naomie Harris, Rampage is a new action/ adventure / sci-fi movie that’s based on the classic 1980s video game that features apes and monsters destroying cities…

King Kong – like story combined with the end of the world, except that Johnson is playing a regular hero not a super one with a cape.

I’ll probably watch just to see how much of Johnson’s one liners I can take before I’ve had enough. In other words, I’m tuning in on the strength of The Rock’s charisma. A great reason, obviously.

Rampage Release Dates: April 13th, 2018 (UK); April 20th, 2018 (US)…

FANTASTIC BEASTS 2 – THE CRIMES OF GRINDENWALD (2018): New ‘First Look Trailer’ From Eddie Redmayne, Collin Farell,  Katherine Waterston…

Fantastic Beasts 2 – The Crimes of Grindenwald is the second instalment of the ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them‘ series.

Directed by David Yates; starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Ezra Miller, the story is all about the ongoing adventures of Newt Scamander….

I’m still yet to watch the first movie because fantasy isn’t my favourite genre. Nevertheless, it looks as though a lot of footage from the first movie has been used for this trailer. It could just be the general look of the films and the fact that Redmayne’s character appears to sport the same outfit at all times. You know, like Bart Simpson.

It could also be that the marketing people wanted to release something exactly a year before the first movie but they had absolutely nothing to show and so they opted to use old footage. That’s probably it.

I’m sure I’ll eventually make time for these movies. Especially since I put off watching Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and actually rather enjoyed it when I saw it, finally.

Fantastic Beasts 2 – The Crimes Of Grindenwald Release Dates: November 16th, 2018 (US & UK)…

DEADPOOL 2 (2018) New Trailer From Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin…

In Deadpool 2, Ryan Reynolds is back as what I’m sure is his most widely loved character; Deadpool, a.k.a Wade Wilson.

There’s more action, more comedy, more of that good and lovable titular wisecracking to be expected, starting with this fun tease of a trailer…

The intro to this trailer is good, of course but that action… that 10 seconds of beautiful action is just superb. I can’t wait to see it all fit into place .

Deadpool 2 Release Dates: June 1st, 2018 (US & UK)…
