Omar Epps, Kate Walsh and Miranda Cosgrove are the stars of new sci-fi movie 3022

Directed by John Suits 3022 is the story of a group of astronauts who are in deep space when they awake to find that Earth has suffered an extinction level event…

I can’t even imagine the stress of seeing our planet come to such a disastrous end.

Hopefully this will be well executed and maybe the story will comfort me with a twist along the lines of, ‘it was all a dream.‘ or perhaps an elaborate science experiment.

I’m very liking asking for too much but wouldn’t it be interesting to be shown what life may look like on our planet in 3022, before the explosion?

Enver Gjokaj, Haaz Sleiman, Angus MacFayden and Jorja Fox also star.

3022 Release Dates: November 22nd, 2019 (US)…

THE INVISIBLE MAN (2019): New Trailer From Elisabeth Moss, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Aldis Hodge…

Directed by Leigh Whannell, and based on the novel of the same name by H.G. Wells, The Invisible Man stars Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge and Oliver Jackson-Cohen in a new sci-fi / horror / thriller.

Moss plays Cecelia who has the near impossible task of proving that she’s being hunted by someone no one can see. That someone just happens to be her very abusive ex…

I’m really quite horrified by this story. I know it’ll be well acted and I imagine Cecelia will get her vengeance. She better!

I just can’t wait to see how well the special effects are executed. I haven’t read the book so I don’t know if the invisibility ‘science’ will be explained…

Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer, Benedict Hardie, Sam Smith, Amali Golden, Anthony Brandon Wong, Zara Michales and Bianca Pomponio also star.

The Invisible Man Release Dates: February 28th, 2020 (US & UK)…

Employed at a corporation engaged in developing new plant species, against company policy, Alice takes a plant home as a gift for her teenage son, Joe…

The first, mood lifting, anti-depressant happy plant

I simply have to see precisely where this story goes. Especially after the creepy ‘Goodnight little Joe‘ line.

In new drama / sci-fi Auggie, after being forced into early retirement, to the detriment of his relationship with his family, Felix (Richard Kind) finds that he’s fallen in love with an augmented reality companion.

Directed by  Matt Kane; additional key cast includes Larisa Oleynik,  Christine Donlon, Susan Blackwell…

The futuristic technology which is very likely already here definitely has my attention. I also just took a moment to imagine my own personal Auggie. Cool and scary are the words. Scary because of how easily one could get used to them.

Can you imagine having more than one Auggie. A whole group of Auggie ‘friends’

Christen Harper, Steven Robertson, James C. Victor, Carrie Gibson, Tallulah Sheffield, Simone Policano and Chris Devlin aslo star.

I AM MOTHER (2019): The Thing I Liked…

In Netflix sci-fi movie I Am Mother, a robot ‘mother’ created to repopulate earth following human extinction must deal with an inexplicable stranger. A stranger who arrives with news that threatens her unique bond with her teenage daughter.

The intriguing premise and Oscar winner Hilary Swank’s involvement are the reasons I watched I Am Mother. Also starring Rose Byrne and Clara Rugaard, overall director Grant Sputore’s movie is an OK sci-fi mystery. It’s interesting enough even though it could have moved faster. The most engaging part for me is towards the end when the characters’ full truths are finally revealed. By this point it became quite clear to me why Swank had agreed to play her specific role. Her character’s precise predicament and emotional journey are truly interesting in terms of the general experience of being human.

I say watch I Am Mother if you’re curious. Though the movie is indeed a Netflix sci-fi film, it’s also better than other recent Netlix films of the shame genre. Namely IO (2019) and Extinction (2018). I definitely wouldn’t recommend watching those two unless you really, really absolutely have to.

COMA (2019): New Trailer For Russian Movie Starring Milos Bikovic, Lyubov Aksyonova, Aleksey Serebryakov…

Co-written and directed by Nikita Argunov, new Russian sci-fi Coma stars Milos Bikovic, Lyubov Aksyonova and Aleksey Serebryakov.

The story follows a colossal and mysterious accident after which a young talented architect comes back to his senses in a very odd world that only resembles the reality…

Inception (2010) is one of my favourite movies. This movie reminds me a lot of Inception and so I must see for myself the ways in which it’s different. Additionally, I’m in for the special effects.

Additional cast includes Anton Pampushnyy, Rinal Mukhametov, Vilen Babichev, Albert Kobrovsky and Polina Kuzminskaya.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 (2017): Good Movie…

To those who’ve already read my thoughts on Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014), you’ll know that I didn’t completely love the movie. Regardless of that truth though, I’m still determined to see as many of the stand alone films of each Avengers Endgame (2019) character as possible. And with that goal in mind, a few days ago I sat myself down to two hours and sixteen minutes of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2.

My expectations weren’t exactly the highest, as one might imagine. So picture my surprise when I found myself having a good time almost immediately.

In trying to understand what had changed, it became clear that , the story is simply much better this time round. I found it more interesting. I definitely enjoyed the surprises within the script as well as the elaboration on the backstory of several of the main characters. I’m also quite sure that there weren’t any sentimental moments or attempts at humour that felt hugely forced. I imagine that everything was that little bit better because the actors were more comfortable in their roles.

I still stand by the truth that I didn’t enjoy Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014), but I’m also sure that my appreciation of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. isn’t a result of me learning to ignore any of the humour that doesn’t quite land or ignore any general corniness within the script. I really did like the new characters, find the story more fun, and appreciated the special effects that little bit extra.

With all that said I now say, watch it because it’s good and especially if you’re sure I’m not completely mad.

TERMINATOR – DARK FATE (2019): NEw Trailer From Mackenzie Davis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton…

Directed by Tim Miller of Deadpool (2016) and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton plus Mackenzie Davis, Terminator – Dark Fate is the next instalment in the celebrated science fiction story that started with James Cameron’s The Terminator back in 1984.

The official plot hasn’t yet been released but additional key cast does include Gabriel Luna, Diego Boneta, Natalia Reyes, Brett Azar…

‘Wow’ is the word because this trailer looks really good. Fans of Cameron’s first and second Terminator Movies movie are no doubt excited to see Hamilton back as the rather badass Sarah Conner.

Right aways I know I like Davis as Grace, whoever Grace is. I’m also excited to hopefully find Luna’s Terminator character to be as perfectly loathsome as Robert Patrick’s great portrayal of T-1000 from Terminator 2 – Judgement Day (1991).

Terminator – Dark Fate Release Dates: October 23rd, 2019 (UK); November 1st, 2019 (US & CAN)…
