1922 (2017): New Trailer From Thomas Jane, Molly Parker, Neal McDonough…

Thomas Jane, Molly Parker and Neal McDonough are the stars of 1922, another Stephen King book-to-movie adaptation. Set in 1922, Jane plays a simple yet proud rancher who conspires to murder his wife for financial gain and convinces his teenage son to participate…

I want to watch this one, especially to see the teenage son’s emotional journey. All I have to do before then is get over my intense dislike of the vilest of rodents; particularly since you would have noticed, they feature quite prominently. If they weren’t already enough put me on edge, the music in this trailer also plays its part.

Directed by Zak Hilditch; Kaitlyn Bernard, Dylan Schmid, Nikolai Witschl and Roan Curtis also star.

ALL I SEE IS YOU (2016): New Trailer From Blake Lively, Jason Clarke, Yvonne Strahovski, Danny Huston…

In All I See Is You, Blake Lively is a blind woman whose relationship with her husband changes when she regains her sight and discovers disturbing details about themselves. Directed by Marc Forster; Jason Clarke, Yvonne Strahovski and Danny Huston also star…

This looks like it could be Lively’s darkest role yet and that’s a prospect too intriguing for me to ignore. I also just want to know the nature of the ‘disturbing details’ discovered.

THE SQUARE (2017): New Trailer From Elisabeth Moss, Claes Bang, Dominic West…

Written and directed by Ruben Östlund, The Square is a satirical drama about the sense of community, moral courage and the affluent person’s need for egocentricity in an increasingly uncertain world…

Interesting synopsis, I must say. The square seems to have a similar quality to The One I Love (2014), an Elisabeth Moss movie I like. It’s perhaps the slightly crazed energy both films seem to share that had me linking the two.

The Square Release Dates: March 16th, 2018 (UK)…

Saoirse Ronan, Odeya Rush and Danielle Macdonald are the stars of Lady Bird, a new Greta Gerwig directed movie about the adventures of a young woman living in Northern California….

I’ll be watching because Gerwig is smart and wise – kind of like the big sister I never had. And then there’s Ronan who is just simply great.

Lady Bird Release Dates: November 10th, 2017 (US); December 1st, 2017 (UK)…

MUDBOUND (2017): New Trailer From Garrett Hedlund, Carey Mulligan, Mary J. Blige, Jason Mitchell…

Garrett Hedlund, Carey Mulligan, Mary J. Blige and Jason Mitchell are the stars of director, Dee Rees’s latest, Mudbound. Hedlund and Mitchell play two men who are back home from World War II to work on a farm in rural Mississippi. The men struggle to deal with racism and adjusting to life after war…

My guess would be that PTSD is more or less the same for war veterans now – as it was back then. I can’t wait to find out in this movie. The beautiful friendship and how Rees handles the challenges both men face are additional reasons I’ll be watching. Also, Garrett Hedlund starring in a promising movie… I’ve looked forward to this day. I really have. I’ve also been hearing the name ‘Dee Rees’ for a few weeks now. It’s time I found out why.

Lastly, Carey Mulligan is back! Yeah! – for she’s one of my favourites.

Mudbound Release Dates: November 17th, 2017 (US)…

FIFTY SHADES FREED (2018): New Trailer From Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson, Rita Ora, Arielle Kebbel…

It’s that time again! Time for the next movie in E.L. James best selling Fifty Shades trilogy. Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson and Rita Ora are joined by Arielle Kebbel in Fifty Shades Freed. This time Christian and Anastasia are an official couple and Anastasia finds herself still haunted by Christian’s past…

You may have already guessed but I’m not watching this movie because I’m expecting great things. I’ve seen the first two so I pretty much know what I can expect in terms of the general gist of the story, the often questionable dialogue and phrases I’ll be forced to verbalise such as, ‘what rubbish!’

The key reason I’m tuning in is because as per a great quote from one of the characters in an old classic British sitcom called Desmonds, ‘You can’t swallow a whole cow and then choke at the tail.’

Additionally, I really, really, REALLY, very much want a good look at that stunning wedding dress.

Fifty Shades Freed Release Dates: February 9th, 2018 (UK & US)…

THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS (2017): New Trailer From Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer, Jonathan Pryce, Simon Callow…

Bharat Nalluri directs Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer, Jonathan Pryce and  Simon Callow in a movie about the journey that lead to the creation of one of Charles Dickens’ most classic characters. The movie is The Man Who Invented Christmas and the character? Ebenezer Scrooge from A Christmas Carol…

With a title like The Man Who Invented Christmas, how can I not be curious enough to see this, especially considering what a big deal Christmas is these days. I’m of course not really referring to the religious aspect.

The Man Who Invented Christmas Release Dates: November 22nd, 2017 (US); December 1st, 2017 (UK)…

Starring Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Ben Foster and Peter Mulan, Hostiles tells the story of what happened when in 1892, a legendary Army captain reluctantly agreed to escort a Cheyenne chief and his family through dangerous territory…

The brilliance that is Mr. Bale is the reason I’m tuning in. He embodies such screen presence, charisma and that’s before he even says a single word.

Directed by Scott Cooper; Jesse Plemons, Stephen Lang, Paul Anderson and Q’orianka Kilcher also star.
