Starring Ansel Elgort, Rachel Zegler and Ariana DeBose; Steven Spielberg brings us an adaptation of 1957’s West Side Story. A musical that explores forbidden love and the rivalry between two teenage street gangs of different ethnic backgrounds.

Just as I’d started to think that these days, Lin-Manuel Miranda is the only big name attached to hit musical movies; Steven Spielberg brings us a remake of West Side Story, the 1967 Oscar winning musical.

I watched the older movie in high school and I don’t recall disliking it as much as I do most musicals. For that reason and general curiosity, I’ll be watching this one. I also just love all the bright colours in this trailer.

David Alvarez, Rita Moreno, Mike Faist, Curtiss Cook, Brian d’Arcy James, Corey Stoll, Ezra Menas, Ben Cook, Sean Harrison Jones, Patrick Higgins, Paloma Garcia Lee and Maddie Ziegler also star.

West Side Story Release Dates: December 10th, 2021 (US & UK)…

Based on Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel of the same name, and directed by John Crowley, The Goldfinch is a new drama starring Ansel Elgort, Nicole Kidman, Sarah Paulson and Finn Wolfhard.

After a bombing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that kills his mother, young Theodore Decker is taken in by a wealthy Upper East Side, New York family…

I’m interested for reasons including this trailer looks great, my appreciation of most – if not all the actors involved and I can’t wait to see how well this movie says what it has to say about grief.

My only wish at this point is that young Theodore actually resembled grown up Theodore. He’s probably too young but Jacob Tremblay probably looks more like a younger version of Elgort and Thomas Mann looks more like a grown up Wolfhard. What do you think?

Luke Wilson, Jeffrey Wright, Aneurin Barnard, Peter Jacobson, Luke Kleintank and Peter Jacobson also star.

The Goldfinch Release Dates: September 13th, 2019 (US); September 27th, 2019 (UK)…

Ansel Elgort, Patricia Clarkson, Matt Bomer and Suki Waterhouse are the stars of new drama / sci-fi Jonathan.

Directed by Bill Oliver, the story follows Jonathan who leaves the office everyday at noon. He gets home and goes to sleep. Each morning when Jonathan wakes up, there’s a breakfast prepared for him along with a video telling him about the second part of his day…

I rather enjoyed the mysterious nature of the above synopsis. Upon seeing the trailer, I’m definitely quite intrigued and find myself thinking of cloning as a key theme. It could also be interesting if I were wrong – especially since I do enjoy a well executed story surprise.

Douglas Hodge, Souleymane Sy Savane, Ramses Torres and Jeff Kim also star.

Jonathan Release Dates: November 16th, 2018 (US)…

Starring Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lilly James, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx and directed by Edgar Wright, Baby Driver is the new action / crime / thriller about a young getaway driver who has been coerced into taking part in a heist job that’s doomed to fail….

All that came to right away as I watched this trailer is ‘What a great role for Elgort to land‘.
