New comedy / crime / drama Judy & Punch is the latest from Mia Wasikowska, Damon Herriman and Benedict Hardie.

Written / directed by Mirrah Foulkes and set in a town called Seaside, puppeteers Judy and Punch are trying to resurrect their marionette show. The show is a hit due to Judy’s superior puppeteering, but Punch’s driving ambition and love of whisky lead to an inevitable tragedy that Judy must avenge…

A long time ago, I vaguely recall hearing more than once that the story behind Punch and Judy, the famous traditional 16th century puppet show, featuring Mr. Punch and his wife Judy is actually darker than people realise. I guess it’s time to find out precisely why.

I’m looking forward to the humour among the darkness and of course, Judy’s sweet, sweet vengeance.

Eddie Baroo, Tom Budge, Virginia Gay, Amy Christian, Kiruna Stamell, Don Bridges, Michael M. Foster and Daisy Axon also star.

Judy & Punch Release Dates: November 15th, 2019 (UK)

 Guy Ritchie’s latest action / crime movie The Gentlemen stars Matthew McConaughey, Charlie Hunnam, Colin Farell and Michelle Dockery.

It’s the England based story of a very British drug lord who tries to sell off his highly profitable empire to a dynasty of Oklahoma billionaires…

Ritchie is the director of two of my favourite British films, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) and Snatch (2000). So of course I’m watching this one. The cast and story looks great. The comes the cherry on top of rather posh British actors speaking in far less posh accents. Such fun!

Jeremy Strong, Henry Golding, Hugh Grant, Jason Wong, Brittany Ashworth, Christopher Evangelou and Eliot Sumner also star.

The Gentlemen Release Dates: January 1st, 2020 (UK), January 24th, 2020 (US)…

I’m in because maybe finally all the excitement and yelping with delight that was a result of me seeing Quinn in the Suicide Squad trailer can deliver on its promise. Fingers, toes and everything crossed. There’s still hope because Robbie is great.

I like energy, much of what I see in this trailer, and I need to know how things work out for Howard. I’m also in to see Sandler do well in a non- purely comic role.

Starring Becky, Sakurako Konishi and Masataka Kubota new action / crime / romance, First Love has a young boxer and a call girl caught up in a drug-smuggling scheme.

Directed by Takashi Miike, all the exciting action takes place during a single night in Tokyo…

Apparently I’ve been missing out by never having seen a Takashi Miike movie.

I certainly can’t deny that the plot and style in this trailer has peaked my interest. Fingers, toes and everything crossed that I can stomach all the killing. I hear that since I’m generally un-phased by all the blood and killing in Quentin Tarantino’s signature works, I should be OK.

Jun Murakami, Nao Ohmori, Sansei Shiomi, Shôta Sometani and Seiyô Uchino also star.
