24X36 – A movie About Movie Posters is Kevin Burke directed documentary about the birth, death, and resurrection of the illustrated movie poster. Film director Joe Dante, artists Orlando Arocena, David Byrd,  Matt Tobin and Andrea Alvin are among those featured…

As I go about my days away from home, encountering a movie poster for a film I’m looking forward to seeing has always been a highlight. In fact, it never fails to put a smile on my face. Sadly though, that’s probably the only time when I actually care about movie posters. Even then my interest is never really about the artistry; unless it’s amazing or the opposite extreme.

I want to see this documentary to find out what I may be missing. Perhaps I’ll encounter an illustrated movie poster I just have to have. Since I’m not into comic books either, the likelihood isn’t great; in which case I’ll probably be happy to settle for an education.

Manolo – The Boy Who Made Shoes For Lizards is a new Michael Roberts directed documentary about Manolo Blahnik, the man regarded by those who know as ‘the best shoe-maker of the 20th and 21st centuries’. Roberts’s film offers an in-depth portrait of Blahnik, the self confessed ‘cobbler’ whose work is adored by the likes of Anna Wintour, Naomi Campbell, Rihanna, Iman – to name just a few…

To say that I’m shoe obsessed would be a lie, but I am ever curious about creative people and I’ll watch this to take in the beauty and art of Blahnik’s designs.

Fantasy / adventure, A Wrinkle In Time is a story about a young girl called Meg. Meg is sent into space with her brother and a friend by three peculiar beings.  Together they must venture there to find Meg’s scientist father after his sudden disappearance. Directed by Ava DuVernay; A Wrinkle In Time stars Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey, Gugu Mbatha-Raw…

Reasons to watch this movie include the story, which is completely new to me, the magic, the talented cast and the beautiful visuals. I’m liking Oprah Winfrey as the voice of the narrator, as well as the hint of a vibe similar to Alice In Wonderland and The Wizard Of Oz. 

Mindy Kaling, Zach Galifianakis,  Michael Peña, Bellamy Young and André Holland also star.

A Wrinkle In Time Release Dates: March 9th, 2018 (US), 23rd March, 2018 (UK)…

THE LAYOVER (2017): New Trailer From Alexandra Daddario, William H. Macy, Kate Upton…

The Layover is a new comedy starring Alexandra Daddario, Kate Upton and William H. Macy. With Macy also directing, the story centres around two friends who go on a road trip and end up fighting over a handsome guy they meet…

I’m tuning into this one because I’m open to a few seemingly cheap laughs. Who knows, maybe there’ll be more to this movie than I ever imagined. I’ll be OK if there isn’t because I’m curious about Mr. Macy as a director. He’s an actor I’ll always appreciate thanks to Magnolia (1999), one of my favourites.

The Layover Release Dates: August 3rd, 2017 (US)…

Darkest Hour is directed by Joe Wright (Atonement (2007) and  stars Gary Oldman, Lily James, Ben Mendelsohn and Kristin Scott Thomas. The movie tells the story of Winston Churchill’s most defining trial: exploring a negotiated peace treaty with Nazi Germany, or standing firm to fight for the ideals, liberty and freedom of a nation…

I’ll see this because Oldman is great and it sounds as though he may have nailed Churchill’s voice. There’s also Churchill’s very famous inspirational quotes to look forward to.

Darkest Hour Release Dates: November 22nd, 2017 (US); January 12th, 20018 (UK)…

Pilgrimage is the Brendan Muldowney directed adventure / drama set in 13th century Ireland. Starring Tom Holland, Jon Bernthal and Richard Armitage, the story centres around a group of monks who are tasked with escorting a sacred relic across an Irish landscape that’s fraught with peril…

I don’t know if it’s because Game of Thrones is just around the corner, but I’m kind of in the mood for a movie about an adventure fraught with peril. Perhaps this one will be good.

Pilgrimage Release Dates: August 11th, 2017 (US)…

Starring Adam Busch, Meera Rohit Kumbhani, Kirsten Vangsness and Stephanie Allynne, Dave Made A Maze is a Bill Watterson directed adventure / comedy / horror film. At the centre of the story is an artist who’s frustrated because he’s yet to complete anything of note in his life. Things get interesting when his frustration leads to him building a fort in his living room. A fort that ends up trapping him thanks to the fantastical pitfalls, booby traps, and critters of his own creation…

This is just the kind of crazy I want to watch. I like that it’s unlike most. After this trailer, I’m very curious about what else the maze can possibly do.

Directed and co-written by  Janicza Bravo, Lemon is the story of a man whose life is unravelling after his girlfriend of 10 years suddenly leaves him. Michael Cera, Brett Gelman, Nia Long and Judy Greer star…

Even though Lemon s a drama, I’m kind of mainly tuning in for the comedy that’s due to come out of the peculiar characters in this trailer. I’m excited about the lovely Nia Long’s role and I want to see what Michael Cera will do since I haven’t seen him in many films for a while.

Gillian Jacobs, Jeff Garlin, Megan Mullally and Inger Tudor also star.

Lemon Release Dates: August 18th, 2017 (US)…
