Liam Neeson, Vera Farmiga, Sam Neill, Patrick Wilson, and Dean-Charles Chapman are the the stars of The Commuter; a Jaume Collet-Serra directed mystery/ thriller about a businessman caught up in a criminal conspiracy during his daily commute home….

Filmically speaking, I’ll pretty much follow Liam Neeson anywhere – because of Taken (2018). It also helps that this trailer looks especially good, as do the very beautiful shoes on Vera Farmiga’s feet.

The Commuter Release Dates: January 12, 2018 (US); January 19th, 2018 (UK)…

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.

FIFTY SHADES FREED (2018): New Trailer From Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson, Rita Ora, Arielle Kebbel…

It’s that time again! Time for the next movie in E.L. James best selling Fifty Shades trilogy. Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson and Rita Ora are joined by Arielle Kebbel in Fifty Shades Freed. This time Christian and Anastasia are an official couple and Anastasia finds herself still haunted by Christian’s past…

You may have already guessed but I’m not watching this movie because I’m expecting great things. I’ve seen the first two so I pretty much know what I can expect in terms of the general gist of the story, the often questionable dialogue and phrases I’ll be forced to verbalise such as, ‘what rubbish!’

The key reason I’m tuning in is because as per a great quote from one of the characters in an old classic British sitcom called Desmonds, ‘You can’t swallow a whole cow and then choke at the tail.’

Additionally, I really, really, REALLY, very much want a good look at that stunning wedding dress.

Fifty Shades Freed Release Dates: February 9th, 2018 (UK & US)…

THE MAN WHO INVENTED CHRISTMAS (2017): New Trailer From Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer, Jonathan Pryce, Simon Callow…

Bharat Nalluri directs Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer, Jonathan Pryce and  Simon Callow in a movie about the journey that lead to the creation of one of Charles Dickens’ most classic characters. The movie is The Man Who Invented Christmas and the character? Ebenezer Scrooge from A Christmas Carol…

With a title like The Man Who Invented Christmas, how can I not be curious enough to see this, especially considering what a big deal Christmas is these days. I’m of course not really referring to the religious aspect.

The Man Who Invented Christmas Release Dates: November 22nd, 2017 (US); December 1st, 2017 (UK)…

Starring Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Ben Foster and Peter Mulan, Hostiles tells the story of what happened when in 1892, a legendary Army captain reluctantly agreed to escort a Cheyenne chief and his family through dangerous territory…

The brilliance that is Mr. Bale is the reason I’m tuning in. He embodies such screen presence, charisma and that’s before he even says a single word.

Directed by Scott Cooper; Jesse Plemons, Stephen Lang, Paul Anderson and Q’orianka Kilcher also star.

THE CURRENT WAR (2017): New Trailer From Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult, Tom Holland…

Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, The Current War is the story of the cutthroat race between electricity titans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to determine whose electrical system would power the modern world. Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult and Tom Holland star…

I find this trailer somewhat over stylised. Nevertheless, there’s just too much impressive talent involved. And I definitely don’t just mean the actors. I can’t wait to see how people battled for market share back then compared to the tech giants of today.

I wonder if The Current War will come close to replacing The imitation Game (2014) as my favourite Benedict Cumberbatch movie. I think not but I’m open to pleasant surprises.

Ekow Quartey, Tuppence Middleton and Matthew Macfadyen make up additional supporting cast.

GERALD’S GAME (2017): New Trailer From Carla Gugino, Henry Thomas, Bruce Greenwood…

In Gerald’s Game, Gerald and Jessie are a middle aged couple trying to spice up their marriage in their remote lake house. Unfortunately for them, things really don’t go according to plan. Directed by Mike Flanagan and based on the novel by Stephen King, Carla Gugino, Bruce Greenwood and Henry Thomas star…

This is probably just the kind of thing that my over-active imagination would conjure up and help me foresee, before I’d even consider allowing myself to be handcuffed, given the choice. For a moment I thought the characters were actually having an affair. How much more anxiety ridden Jessie would be if that were the case.

I have to see this to find out how she gets out, especially assuming that she does it without anyone’s help.

THE PARTY (2017): New Trailer From Kristin Scott Thomas, Timothy Spall, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Patricia Clarkson…

The Party is a new drama / comedy that starts as a celebration and ends with blood on the floor. The film’s very talented cast includes Kristin Scott Thomas, Timothy Spall, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Patricia Clarkson…

Watching this rather good trailer reminded me so much of how much I love this kind of film. The kind where adults are stuck in a relatively confined space and they’re forced to resolve any issues they may have with each other, usually resulting in brilliant comic moments. In case my description doesn’t paint a clear enough picture, watch Roman Polanski’s Carnage (2011), a film with great dialogue and a truly brilliant cast, not unlike this one.

Written and directed by Sally Potter; Bruno Ganz also stars.

The Party Release Dates: October 13th, 2017 (UK)…
