Written / directed by Drew Pearce, Hotel Artemis is a new crime / action movie set in a -near future riot-torn version of LA.

Starring Jodie Foster, Sofia Boutella, Dave Bautista, Jeff Goldblum and Sterling K. Brown, the story ofHotel Artemis follows a nurse (Foster) who runs a secret members-only emergency room for criminals…

There’s quite a lot going on in this trailer yet no major stand out moments that have me super excited, even though the plot is unique. I remain hopeful though – because of Foster, Goldblum and serious badass Boutella.

Charlie Day, Zachary Quinto, Jenny Slate and Fatimah Hassan also star.

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)…

From writer / director Leigh Whannell, Upgrade is a new action / sci-fi / comedy set during a time in the near future, when technology controls nearly all aspects of life.

Starring  Logan Marshall-Green, Rosco Campbell and Richard Cawthorne; the story centres around a self-identified technophobe called Grey who has his world turned upside down. Grey’s only hope to set things right is an experimental implant called Stem….

The main reason I’m drawn to this movie is the well-choreographed fight sequences. Maybe I’ll love the rest of it too. Either way, I’ve already been wowed.

Amandla Stenberg, Mandy Moore, Gwendoline Christie and Harris Dickinson star in The Darkest Minds, a sci-fi thriller in which a disease kills 98% of America’s children and the remaining 2% are placed in internment camps.

Based on the book by Alexandra Bracken and directed by Jennifer Yuh Nelson, The adventure begins when a 16-year-old girl escapes her camp…

 

There’s no watching this trailer without thinking about The Hunger Games or Maze Runner. I want this to be good. However there is a part of me that isn’t sure yet. I was really hoping that the special effects on the eyes didn’t look so, for want of another phrase, ‘basic.’ I’ve probably just seen to many glowing  /colourful eyes in other movies

The Darkest Minds Release Dates: August 3rd, 2018 (US); August 10th, 2018 (US)…

In director Lennart Ruff’s TitanSam Worthington is part of a military family that agrees to take part in a ground-breaking experiment of genetic evolution and space exploration.

Taylor Schilling and Tom Wilkinson also star…

I’ve never been an early adopter where new technology is concerned – and genetic evolution / space exploration is likely no exception. Fingers crossed that this movie will be as entertaining as its quite promising trailer. I’ve been waiting for another surprise sci-fi hit ever since the excellence that was Ex Machina (2014).

Titan Release Dates: March 30th, 2018 (US); April 13th, 2018 (UK)…

Tessa Thompson, Armie Hammer and Lakeith Stanfield are the stars of Sorry To Bother You, a comedy / fantasy film based in an alternate present-day version of Oakland, USA.

Written and directed by Boots Riley, Stanfield plays a telemarketer who discovers a magical key to professional success; a key that propels him into…

I’ve been waiting for something crazy and fun; I think this is it! Having seen Get Out (2017), I do rather hope that Stanfield’s character gets out ‘alive’ this time.

This movie really looks as though it was plenty of fun to be part of; I’m smiling just thinking about the onset giggles.

Patton Oswalt, Terry Crews, David Cross, Omari Hardwick and Danny Glover also star.

Callie Hernandez, Tate Ellington and Emily Montague star while Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead direct…

The special effects and the general mystery are the reasons I’m intrigued.

FAHRENHEIT 451 (2018): New Trailer From Michael B. Jordan, Michael Shannon, Sofia Boutella…

Starring Michael B. Jordan, Michael Shannon and Sofia Boutella, Fahrenheit 451 is set in a future where all books must be destroyed. Jordan plays Guy Montag, a fireman whose job it is to eradicate all books.

Unbeknownst to his superiors, Montag begins to question his actions after meeting a little girl…

A world where books are no longer a thing? How can one not be intrigued? It seems near enough ridiculous that such a predicament should truly come to pass. I say I have no issues with such a reality as long as it remains purely fiction, of course.

Directed by Ramin Bahrani; Keir Dullea, Martin Donovan, Lilly Singh, Grace Lynn Kung and Sean Jones also star.

Fahrenheit 451 Release Dates: May 2018 (US)…
