Only The Brave is based on the true story of the elite crew of firemen known as the Granite Mountain Hotshots from Prescott, Arizona. In June 2013 the men battled a wildfire in Yarnell, AZ that claimed the lives of 19 of their members. Directed by Joseph Kosinski; Josh Brolin, Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller and Taylor Kitsch star…

The cast is reliable, the story interesting and that footage of a bear running whilst on fire is spectacular. My fingers are crossed that there’ll be more very impressive fire special effects in the finished movie.

Only The Brave Release Dates: September 22nd, 2017 (UK); October 20th, 2017 (US)…

Written and directed by Angela Robinson, Professor Marston & The Wonder Women is the story of the unconventional life of Dr. William Marston; a Harvard psychologist and inventor who helped invent the modern lie detector test and in 1941 created Wonder Woman…

 

Dr. Marston was intriguingly unconventional and seventy six years ago he created the character in 2017’s biggest blockbuster movie. Of course I have to watch. Especially considering that the trailer looks quite promising.

24×36 – A MOVIE ABOUT MOVIE POSTERS (2016): New Trailer For Documentary About The Illustrated Movie Poster…

24X36 – A movie About Movie Posters is Kevin Burke directed documentary about the birth, death, and resurrection of the illustrated movie poster. Film director Joe Dante, artists Orlando Arocena, David Byrd,  Matt Tobin and Andrea Alvin are among those featured…

As I go about my days away from home, encountering a movie poster for a film I’m looking forward to seeing has always been a highlight. In fact, it never fails to put a smile on my face. Sadly though, that’s probably the only time when I actually care about movie posters. Even then my interest is never really about the artistry; unless it’s amazing or the opposite extreme.

I want to see this documentary to find out what I may be missing. Perhaps I’ll encounter an illustrated movie poster I just have to have. Since I’m not into comic books either, the likelihood isn’t great; in which case I’ll probably be happy to settle for an education.

Manolo – The Boy Who Made Shoes For Lizards is a new Michael Roberts directed documentary about Manolo Blahnik, the man regarded by those who know as ‘the best shoe-maker of the 20th and 21st centuries’. Roberts’s film offers an in-depth portrait of Blahnik, the self confessed ‘cobbler’ whose work is adored by the likes of Anna Wintour, Naomi Campbell, Rihanna, Iman – to name just a few…

To say that I’m shoe obsessed would be a lie, but I am ever curious about creative people and I’ll watch this to take in the beauty and art of Blahnik’s designs.

Darkest Hour is directed by Joe Wright (Atonement (2007) and  stars Gary Oldman, Lily James, Ben Mendelsohn and Kristin Scott Thomas. The movie tells the story of Winston Churchill’s most defining trial: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation…

I’ll see this because Oldman is great and it sounds as though he may have nailed Churchill’s voice. There’s also Churchill’s very famous inspirational quotes to look forward to.

Darkest Hour Release Dates: November 22nd, 2017 (US); January 12th, 20018 (UK)…

Written / directed by Stanley Tucci, Final Portrait tells the story of Swiss painter and sculptor Alberto Giacometti. Set in Paris, France, Geoffrey Rush is Giacometti and Armie Hammer plays critic and old friend, James Lord. Lord sits for a portrait and so begins the creation of one of Giacometti’s masterpieces…

Geoffrey Rush is always memorable and that’s my main reason for watching. I’m also open to discovering another artist’s genius. Lastly, I don’t think I’ve seen a movie directed by Tucci before so hopefully this will be good.

Clemence Posey and Tony Shalhoub also star.

Final Portrait Release Dates: August 18th, 2017 (US)…

England Is Mine is the new Mark Gill directed biopic about musician Steven Patrick Morrissey and his early life in 1970’s Manchester. The film introduces us to Morriessey before he became lead singer of seminal 80’s band The Smiths. Jessica Brown Findlay, Jodie Comer and Jack Lowden star…

 

I’m not exactly a Morrisey fan but I do know who he is. I also know that he has a certain level of ‘self confidence’ which, as this trailer suggests could prove entertaining. In other words, I’m curious about Morrissey’s character. Perhaps I’ll also discover new music I like.

England Is Mine Release Dates: August 4th, 2017 (UK); 2017 (US)…

Directed by Andy Serkis; starring Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy, Hugh Bonneville and Diana Rigg, Breathe tells the story of Robin, a handsome, brilliant and adventurous man whose life takes a dramatic turn when polio renders him paralysed…

I’m somewhat intrigued by this movie. I say only somewhat because the story seems quite similar to The Theory Of Everything (2014) – a film which still remains fresh in my mind. I’m also probably a little more curious about director Andy Serkis’s other upcoming movie Jungle Book – due in 2018 and based on the famous Rudyard Kipling story.
