Directer Fabien Constant’s Here and Now stars Sarah Jessica Parker as a singer in New York who finds a new perspective on her life and dreams following grim diagnosis.

Other key cast includes Renée Zellweger, Simon Baker, Common, Taylor Kinney, Jacqueline Bisset, Michael Potts…

Seems like the kind of interesting human story I could enjoy. The mix of acting talent is kind of  unexpected whilst holding some promise.

Lastly, I find curious about Parker’s singing voice – assuming that we’ll get to here it in the movie.

Bohemian Rhapsody is the name of one of Queen’s most popular songs. It’s now also a film starring Rami Malek as late Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury.

Directed by Dexter Fletcher and Bryan Singer, Bohemian Rhapsody tells the story of the years leading up to Queen‘s legendary appearance at the 1985 Live Aid concert…

I’m so very in for Malek’s performance. I also want to re-live the Queen experience I’m familiar and that that I’m not. So far so good. Though I don’t remember Mercury’s teeth being quite that way.

Bohemian Rhapsody Release Dates: October 24th, 2018 (UK); November 2nd, 2018 (US)…

Directed by Kevin Macdonald, Whitney is a new documentary that offers an in depth look at the life and music of Whitney Houston.

Shedding a new light on the spellbinding trajectory of Houston’s life, we’re exposed to Houston’s family life beyond the tabloid headlines…

I’m really interested in this one as a Whitney Houston fan and as someone who’s ever curious about the things that lead to what people become – great and otherwise.

Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson and Alex Sharp are the stars of How to Talk to Girls at Parties, a John Cameron Mitchell directed comedy / romance about an alien. An alien that’s touring the galaxy but breaks away from her group and meets two young inhabitants of the most dangerous place in the universe – the London suburb of Croydon…

I’m in for the alien activity and the costumes. I also can’t say that I didn’t find the line in the official synopsis about Croydon amusing.

Gaga – Five Foot Two is a new documentary about pop provocateur Lady Gaga. Directed by Chris Moukarbel, the film takes us behind the scenes as the pop sensation releases a bold new album and prepares for her Super Bowl halftime show…

I’m watching this one to find out what Gaga has been up to since her second album. I kind of lost track of her after then. therefore, I don’t even know which Super Bowl halftime show the above synopsis is referring to.

SCORE – A FILM MUSIC DOCUMENTARY (2016): New Trailer Featuring Composers Hans Zimmer, John Williams, Quincy Jones…

Score – A Film Music Documentary promises to give us a privileged look inside the musical challenges and creative secrecy surrounding the film score. Written and directed by Matt Schrader; John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Quincy Jones, Trent Raznor and several more of Hollywood’s premier composers are featured…

I don’t really know many film score composers by name, except Hans Zimmer and the unfortunately late James Horner. Zimmer and Horner created music for Inception (2010) and Titanic (1996) respectively. Two films that have undoubtably helped shape the unapologetic and fully dedicated film lover that I have become. I imagine and hope that Horner (who doesn’t seem to have been mentioned in this trailer) will be featured. After all, the Titanic soundtrack is one of the most recognisable. It’s also the first movie soundtrack I ever purchased, thanks to Horner and James Cameron’s great work.

Score: A Film Music Documentary Release Dates: June 16th, 2017 (US)…
