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.

The Little Stranger Release Dates: August 31st, 2018 (US)…

A world-renowned dance company is the setting and the story is about a darkness that swirls at its centre. One that will engulf the artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist.

Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton and Mia Goth star while Luca Guadagnino directs…

The slight Black Swan (2010) vibes help; however it’s really Swinton and my curiosity for seeing Johnson doing well in a film outside of the Fifty Shades of Grey movies; these are  my reasons for watching.

Lutz Ebersdorf, Angela Winkler, Ingrid Caven and Elena Fokina also star.

Suspiria Release Dates: November 2nd, 2018 (US)…

Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick and Linda Cardellini are the stars of Paul Feig’s latest, a Crime / Mystery / Thriller, A Simple Favor. 

Kendrick is a a mommy vlogger who seeks to uncover the truth behind her best friend’s sudden disappearance…

I only really know Feig for his hit comedy films. Namely Bridesmaids (2011) and  Spy (2015). May his transition to the non-comedy category also prove fruitful.

I  can’t say that I’m a fan of the various moments of ‘dialogue minus imagery’ in this trailer, yet I am intrigued and I like Lively and Kendrick enough to take a chance.

Henry Golding, Rupert Friend, Eric Johnson and Sarah Baker also star.

A Simple Favor Release Dates: September 14th, 2018 (US); September 21st, 2018 (UK)…

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)…

The Outsider tells the story of an American former G.I. who joins the yakuza (transnational organized crimesyndicate) during post-WWII Japan.

Directed by Martin Zandvliet; the key cast includes Jared Leto, Tadanobu Asano, Kippei Shîna…

I’m always ready for some slick onscreen badassery. Therefore, having seen this trailer, I’m now  even more excited about the The Equalizer (2014) sequel because towards the end of Leto’s trailer, I was reminded of my favourite scene in The Equalizer. The one that involves a very swift move with a gun.

May this please be one of the better Netflix movies.

The Outsider Release Dates: February 28th 2018 / March 9th, 2018 (US)…

A young woman is found murdered and the prime suspect is a ‘happily married’ professor with a reputation.

Directed by Simon Kaijser, the key characters are played by Guy Pearce, Odeya Rush, Minnie Driver and Pierce Brosnan…

Pearce always plays interesting characters; that’s the reason I’ll be watching this hopefully satisfying thriller.

Sterling Beaumon, Alexandra Shipp, Sean Blakemore, Clark Gregg and Jamie Kennedy also star.

MUTE (2018): New Trailer From Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux…

Alexander Skarsgård, Paul Rudd and Justin Theroux are the stars of Mute, a Duncan Jones directed mystery / sci-fi / thriller about a mute bartender (Skarsgård) who goes up against his city’s gangsters to find out what happened to his missing girlfriend, the love of his life…

The futuristic setting and the resultant visuals are why I’m most interested. Paul Rudd playing a character who doesn’t appear to be sweet and adorable intrigues me. Then there’s Alexander Skårsgard – for reasons including the emotional range he’s likely to achieve in this role (since he can’t speak) and his impressive stature.

Noel Clarke, Nikki Lamborn, Seyneb Saleh and Gilbert Owuor  also star.

Mute Release Dates: February 23rd, 2018 (US)…

A goo looking trailer that didn’t scare me too much; I happen to like that in a scary movie FingerS crossed that sleep will still be my friend post viewing.
