THE MEG (2018): New Trailer From Ruby Rose, Jason Statham, Rainn Wilson…

Starring Jason Statham, Ruby Rose and Rainn Wilson, The Meg is a Jon Turteltaub directed action / horror / sci-fi movie about Jonas Taylor, a man who must confront his fears of the 70 foot shark he escaped from to save those trapped in a sunken submersible.

Pushing aside my thoughts of a modern Moby Dick and Steven Spielberg’s Jaws (1975), I want to see this one for the special effects. It’s also quite likely that I’m going to be rooting for the ‘fish’.

The Meg Release Dates: August 10th, 2018 (US & UK)…

A QUIET PLACE (2018): The Things I Liked…

Starring Emily Blunt, co-written / directed by, and starring John Krasinski, A Quiet Place is a scary movie I wanted to see regardless of my characteristic of being ‘easily spooked into insomnia and nightmares.’ 

Set during a post apocalyptic future, Blunt and Krasinski are a couple with three children. In an effort to stay alive, the family are forced to live in silence because simply not doing so will mean they’re heard and subsequently become prey for mysterious creatures that hunt by sound.

I enjoyed this movie and was shocked, moved and impressed by the story, characters, performances plus the execution of the most memorable moments. A Quiet Place did a good job of showing the audience the general cleverness one would need in order to survive in a world where sound becomes deadly. 

I absolutely want to believe that I’d survive living in silence; however there may be too much about me that is loud. A surprise sneeze attack among many other things would surely mean the end of me.

Besides making me an even bigger fan of Blunt and Krasinski, A Quiet Place made me appreciate my freedom to make sound. It reminded me of the the gargantuan challenge that is parenting. It also left me feeling even more empowered and powerful as a young woman, something I wasn’t expecting.

If I had to pick one thing that I wasn’t totally in love with about this movie, it would be the jarring move from silence to a seemingly super loud sound/ musical score. 

Watch it because it’s good and A Quiet Place will likely not result in a single moment of sleeplessness. It didn’t for me.. yet!

THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS (2018): New Trailer From Cate Blanchett, Jack Black, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Braxton Bjerken…

The House With A Clock In Its Walls, features a clock with the power to bring about the end of the world – and young orphan Lewis Barnavelt must aid his magical uncle in locating it.

Directed by Eli Roth, Cate Blanchett, Jack Black, Renée Elise Goldsberry and Braxton Bjerken are among the stars…

Knowing that Jack Black would be in this movie meant that the trailer had my attention. But, a trailer having my attention is not much compared to how exited I am when said trailer surprises me with the fact that ‘acting queen’ Cate Blanchett is a key cast member. The last time this happened, I was watching the trailer for Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella (2015)  – the reason why Cinderella is officially my favourite Disney movie.

Besides Blanchett and Black, I’m in for the mystery and magic.

Kyle MacLachlan, Lorenza Izzo, Colleen Camp, Perla Middleton and Braxton Bjerken also star.

The House With A Clock In Its Walls Release Dates: September 21st, 2018 (US); September 28th, 2018 (UK)…

In Wildling, a blossoming teenager uncovers the dark secret behind her traumatic childhood.

Congratulations to the casting director for finding a great match to play a younger version of Powley’s character. Those eyes!

I’m curious to see how good this turns out to be.  I’d also like to know if Powley’s character killed her father… With that said, it’s now officially time to stop myself from thinking about the story too much. Otherwise I may just figure the whole thing out.

Wildling Release Dates: April 13th, 2018 (US); April 20th, 2018 (UK)…

UNSANE (2018): New Trailer From Steven Soderbergh Starring Claire Foy, Juno Temple, Aimee Mullins…

Imagine being committed to a mental institution against your will; a place where you’re confronted by your greatest fear. The question is, is it real or is it a product of your delusion?

Such is the plight of the young woman played by Claire Foy in director Steven Soderbergh’s latest horror / thriller, Unsane. Unsane also stars Juno Temple, Aimee Mullins, Jay Pharoah

All the hype I’ve been hearing about Foy’s performance in hit Netflix series The Crown is I’m sure very well deserved. Having not seen the show yet, I’m hoping that watching Soderbergh’s movie will make me want to see The Crown even more. Plus, portraying madness is no easy feat – and I imagine that Foy will do a great job.

Why haven’t I already seen The Crown, you may wonder? I’m from London, England, darling. ‘The Crown’ is my every day, don’t you know?

Unsane Release Dates: March 23rd, 2018 (US & UK)…
