In the Steven Caple Jr. directed Creed IIRocky Balboa and newly crowned light heavyweight champion Adonis Creed team up to fight Viktor Drago, the son of Ivan Drago.

Michael B Jordan, Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson and Florian Munteanu star…

This one is I imagine quite exciting for dedicated fans of boxing and the Balboa / Creed / Drago story. I’m more of a good film fan. Therefore, there’s a chance that this may be for  me too, probably.

Creed II Release Dates: November 21st, 2018 (US); November 30th, 2018 (UK)…

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is a new drama / romance that tells the story of  teenage girl whose secret love letters are exposed.

Based on the novel by Jenny Han; Lana Condor, John Corbett, Noah Centineo and Emilija Baranac star…

As I watched this trailer, I thought ‘here we go, just the same old teen story…’ But then the reason the protagonist faints at the beginning is revealed and I decide that I could probably dedicate some time to this movie. Especially since – luckily for me, my high school crush was never so cruel as to tell me that nothing would ever happen between us.

I’m going to let this movie take me back to my early teenage years as I reminisce about  the boy who made school an event I was always more than happy to wake up for.

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before Release Dates: August 17th, 2018 (US)…

Set in the summer of 1947, Dr Faraday, a respectable country doctor is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall where his mother once worked. Little does Faraday know that he’s about to find out just how closely and terrifyingly the family of his new patient’s story is about to become entwined with his own.

From director Lenny Abrahamson, The Little Stranger is based on the novel by Lucinda Coxon and Sarah Waters. Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Charlotte Rampling and Will Poulter star…

The mystery intrigues me. Yet it’s mainly Poulter and his character that have me most interested.

Directed by Lauren Miller Rogen, Like Father stars Kristen Bell, Kelsey Grammer and Seth Rogen.

Bell plays a workaholic who gets ditched at the alter but ends up going on her honeymoon trip anyway with her estranged father…

I like Bell so I’ll give this a chance, much like the same way I gave Bad Moms (2016) a chance. Granted, Bad Moms and it’s sequel turned out to be major disappointments for me. Nevertheless, I have higher hopes for this one. Plus, I can’t give up on Bell, especially since there’s always the memory of my favourite of her movies (Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) to cling to. It’s one of the best movie ‘pleasant surprises’ I’ve ever had.

Brittany Ross, Zach Appelman, Danielle Davenport, Ejyp Johnson and Elisabeth Ness also star.

Nobody’s Fool is a new comedy / drama directed by Tyler Perry and starring Tiffany Haddish, Tika Sumpter, Whoopi Goldberg and Omari Hardwick.

Haddish plays a woman released from prison who helps her sister find find the identity of her catfish…

The plot certainly appears to be a little thin. However, the key reason I want to see this is Whoopi Goldbergs performance. I’m sure Haddish will be entertaining. Though, how much fun I have will likely depend quite a bit on how much of a ‘clone of her Girls Trip (2017) character’ this new role will be.

Nobody’s Fool Release Dates: November 2nd, 2018 (US); Novemeber 23RD, 2018 (UK)…

The Old Man & The Gun is the true story of Forrest Tucker and his unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public.

Directed by David Lowery; Robert Redford, Sissy Spacek, Elisabeth Moss and John David Washington star…

Redford’s character looks so adorable, charming and fun to watch. Just how different this film will be to other bank robber stories, that is my question and I’m looking forward to finding out.

White Boy Rick is based on the true story of Richard Wershe Jr.,  a teenager who became an undercover informant for the FBI in the 80s and was arrested for drug-trafficking and sentenced to life in prison.

Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Brian Tyree Henry, Richie Merritt and Bel Powley star, while Yann Demange directs…

I feel as though there’s so much of this story that I’ve seen before – but hopefully there’s enough difference to keep it interesting. I’d probably be less enthused if it wasn’t for McConaughey. He looks to be in great form based on this trailer.

Additional cast includes Eddie Marsan, Richie Merritt, Bruce Dern and RJ Cyler.

White Boy Rick Release Dates: September 14th, 2018 (US)… December 7th, 2018 (UK)…

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)…
