X-MEN – THE NEW MUTANTS (2018): New Trailer From Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton…

Directed and co-written by Josh Boone, X-Men – The New Mutants follows five young mutants who are just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will. They must fight to escape their past sins and save themselves…

The X-Men young mutant story is one I’m more familiar with than I particularly care to be. However, this one has my attention because of the ‘horror’ and the setting / psychoanalysis element. There’s also the fact that no mention of ‘coming together to save the world’ has taken place, a pleasant surprise for those fatigued by the super hero movie story formula.

X-Men – The New Mutants Release Dates: April 13th, 2018 (US & UK)…

THOROUGHBREDS (2018): New Trailer From Anton Yelchin, Olivia Cooke, Anya Taylor-Joy…

Starring Anton Yelchin, Olivia Cooke and Anya Taylor-Joy, Thoroughbreds is the Cory Finley written / directed thriller about two upper-class teenage girls in suburban Connecticut. The girls rekindle their unlikely friendship after years apart, so they can hatch a plan to solve both their problems-no matter the cost…

The plot for this movie reminds me a small amount of Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring (2013), a movie I did not like so much. Something tells me though, that this will be better. I’ll be watching because this trailer has promise and because I believe this to be the final movie starring the talented but unfortunately late Anton Yelchin.

Thoroughbreds Release Dates: March 9th, 2018 (US & UK)…

Starring Devon Terrell, Anya Taylor Joy and directed by Vikram Gandhi, Barry is the latest Barack Obama biopic from Netflix. This time the focus is on his time in New York City as a young college student, the period that helped shape the future president of the United States…

Also starring jason Mitchell, Ashley Judd and Ellar Coltrane, I confess that it took me a few moments to realise why a film about Barack Obama, the current president of the United States is called Barry. Clearly it must be what his friends call(ed) him. I blame my slow brain on my association of the president with cool whereas I definitlry don’t have the same association with the name Barry. (no offence to all the lovely Barry’s of the world, of course).

I still haven’t watched Southside With Youthe other Barack Obama biopic released earlier this year. But I am looking forward to comparing it with the new ‘college years edition’.

Barry Release Dates: December 16th, 2016 (US)…

SPLIT (2017): New Trailer From M. Night Shyamalan & Starring James McAvoy, Anya Taylor Joy…

Split, the new horror/ thriller starring James McAvoy and Anya Taylor Joy is from writer / director M. Night Shyamalan, better known for the impressive The Sixth Sense (1999).

Usually I’d be certain to stay away from scary movies but in this one, McAvoy will be portraying at least 23 characters / personalities…

Word is out that Anya Taylor Joy is quite the talent. So it may be time for me to experience one of her movies instead of only getting as far as the trailer because it looks too scary. Someone recommended that I start with The Witch (2015), they don’t know me well enough. Morgan (2016), is as scary as I’m willing to go at this point.

Split Release Dates: January 20th, 2017 (US & UK); January 26th, 2017 (GER); March 1st, 2017 (FR)…

Starring Kate Mara, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Paul Giamatti and Boyd Holbrook, Morgan is the story of an artificial being whose continued existence is to be decided by a corporate risk-management consultant…

I’m a fan of Alex Galand’s Ex Machina (2015) and as I watched the above trailer, it occurred to me that this movie may just be the closest that Ex Machina fans will ever get to a sequel. Not ideal but I’ll take it.

Morgan Release Dates: September 2nd, 2016 (US & UK); September 21st, 2016 (FR); November 24th, 2016 (GER)…

Directed by Luke Scott; Michael Yare, Anya Taylor Joy and Boyd Holbrook also star.
