In Welcome To Marwen, Steve Carell plays the victim of a brutal attack, one who finds a unique therapeutic outlet to help him through his recovery.

Janelle Monae, Leslie Mann, Eiza González and Diane Kruger also star, while Robert Zemeckis directs…

I’m in for all the things that make this movie special, including Carell’s likely notable performance and all the hardwork that made the dolls / figures possible. I’m also looking forward to finding out how Carell’s character’s coping method is characterised psychologically.

Welcome To Marwen Release Dates: November 21st, 2018 (US); January 11th, 2019 (2019)…

FIRST MAN (2018): New Trailer Starring Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Jason Clarke…

Directed by Damien Chazelle  (La La Land (2016), First Man is the story of the life of American astronaut Neil Armstrong

Starring Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy and Jason Clarke, we get to learn about Armstrong and the space mission that made him the first man to walk on the Moon on July 20th, 1969…

Hidden figures (2016) is still quite fresh in my mind; not to say that this is exactly the same story but I’m not quite excited about this movie just yet. I only really became enthused at the point when Foy’s character lost it. Still, I’m sure Gosling and Chazelle will do a good job.

Pablo Schreiber, Kyle Chandler, Ciarán Hinds, Ethan Embry, Jason Clarke and Corey Stoll alos star.

First Man Release Dates: October 12, 2018 (US & UK)…

Operation Finale is the true story of the team of secret agents brought together to find Adolf Eichmann, the infamous Nazi architect of the Holocaust.

Set 15 years after World War II, Operation Finale is directed by Chris Weitz and stars Oscar Isaac, Ben Kingsley, Mélanie Laurent, Joe Alwyn…

I’m excited at the prospect of seeing Ben Kingsley in a movie that looks worthy of his talents. I also want the bad guy caught, of course.

As I watched this trailer, it occurred to me that so iconic is Christoph Waltz’s turn as Col. Hans Landa in Inglorious Basterds (2009), I will probably always think of him every time I see another actor in the Colonel uniform of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi army. I confess that I say this as someone who’s yet to watch Schindler’s list.

Nick Kroll, Lior Raz and Haley Lu Richardson also star.

Operation Finale Release Dates: September 14th, 2018 (US)…

Directed by Brad Furman (The Infiltrator  (2016); starring Johnny Depp, Forest Whitaker and and Toby Huss, City Of Lies is a new crime / drama about the investigation in to the murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious BIG…

I didn’t realise how much I missed a character played by Johnny Depp – one where his face wasn’t almost completely hidden by makeup and prosthetics until I saw him in this trailer.

The subject matter is almost to dark and disturbing for me personally to watch but curious, I remain. I also trust that Depp and Whitaker will make it worthwhile.

Bohemian Rhapsody is the name of one of Queen’s most popular songs. It’s now also a film starring Rami Malek as late Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury.

Directed by Dexter Fletcher and Bryan Singer, Bohemian Rhapsody tells the story of the years leading up to Queen‘s legendary appearance at the 1985 Live Aid concert…

I’m so very in for Malek’s performance. I also want to re-live the Queen experience I’m familiar and that that I’m not. So far so good. Though I don’t remember Mercury’s teeth being quite that way.

Bohemian Rhapsody Release Dates: October 24th, 2018 (UK); November 2nd, 2018 (US)…

BLACKKLANSMAN (2018): New Trailer Starring John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace…

Co-written and directed by Spike Lee; John David Washington, Adam Driver and Topher Grace are the stars of BlackKlansman, the true story of Ron Stallworth, an African-American police officer from Colorado.

Stallworth is known for successfully infiltrating the local Ku Klux Klan and becoming the head of the local chapter…

With a title like that, I’m glad this movie is at least partly a comedy. I really appreciated the slow motion turn 00:33 seconds into the trailer.

And of course, for fan’s of excellent comedian Dave Chappelle, there’s almost certainly no reading this movie’s title and watching this trailer without remembering one of the best ever characters of The Chappelle Show, Clayton Bigsby.

BlackKlansman Release Dates: August 10th, 2018 (US); August 24th, 2018 (UK)…

The Catcher Was A Spy is the story of a man in the midst of a double life; working both as a major league baseball player and a spy…

Directed by Ben Lewin; Paul Rudd, Connie Nielsen, Mark Strong and Sienna Miller star…

I don’t know about you, but I haven’t yet encountered a serious, non-comedic Paul Rudd movie that has me excited enough to see it; so deep is my appreciation of his comedic work. Unlike Steve Carell and a few other actors known first for comedy, I’m just finding it hard to make the shift from a funny Rudd to a serious Rudd. I think it’s going to take a film I simply can’t ignore for me to transition. Will The Catcher Was A Spy be that movie? I’m not quite sure yet but I wish.

Guy Pearce, Connie Nielsen, Jeff Daniels, Hiroyuki Sanada and Shea Whigham also star

YELLOW IS FORBIDDEN (2018): New Trailer For Couture Designer Guo Pei Documentary…

Directed by Pietra Brettkell, Yellow Is Forbidden is a new documentary about Guo Pei, a brave fashion designer chasing her dream of being crowned haute couture. The massive challenge for her is that she comes from China, the knock-off capital of the world…

I love stories about people chasing their dreams, however massive the challenge. I myself haven’t the patience, let alone the talent to be a fashion designer. As such, the people who do it well are always interesting to me.

I’m looking forward to this because I remember staring at Rihanna’s 2015 Met Gala outfit in great appreciation of the artistry and spectacle.
