CRUELLA (2021): New Trailer From Emma Stone, Emma Thompson, Mark Strong, Paul Walter Hauser…

Set in 1970s London, England, amidst the punk rock revolution; Cruella is the latest Disney animated film to become a live-action movie.

Starring Emma Stone, Paul Walter Hauser, Emma Thompson and Mark Strong; director Craig Gillespie’s comedy/crime story focuses on the rebellious early days of the notoriously fashionable villain, Cruella de Vil.

I’ve missed seeing Stone in a leading role, and based on this impressive trailer, Cruella looks like a great way to make her presence felt.

Glenn Close is the Cruella that comes to mind when I think of de Vil, thanks to 101 Dalmatians (1996). Now, I can’t wait for this new version of the story to take us back to the earlier years of the devilish de Vil.

Emily Beecham, Joel Fry, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Jamie Demetriou, Gianni Calchetti, Michelle Greenidge, John McCrea, Tony McCarthy, Chloé Booyens, Haruka Abe and Niamh Lynch also star.

Cruella Release Dates: May 28th, 2021 (US)…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of  The Croods – A New Age (2020).


2013’s animated comedy/adventure The Croods has a good looking new sequel.

Directed by Joel Crawford; starring Ryan Reynolds, Nicolas Cage and Emma Stone, The Croods – A New Age follows the prehistoric family once again. This time they’re challenged by a rival family the Bettermans, who claim to be better and more evolved.

Is it possible for this movie to look any more fun? I think not! I don’t remember the first croods movie released seven years ago very well but I know I liked a lot about it.

I’m ready now for a the adventure, humour and cuteness. So, thank goodness the release date isn’t a year away.

Catherine Keener, Leslie Mann, Peter Dinklage, Clark Duke, Cloris Leachman and Kelly Marie Tran also star.

The Croods – A New Age Release Dates: November 25th, 2020 (US); January 29th, 2021 (UK)…

Starring Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, Bill Murray and Jesse Eisenberg, Zombieland – Double Tap continues the story of a group of four as they move to the American heartland and face off against evolved zombies, fellow survivors, and the growing pains of the snarky makeshift family.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer, Zombieland – Double Tap is a follow up to 2009’s Zombieland movie also directed by Fleischer…

I actually had no idea that a previous Zombieland movie existed until today and I generally don’t tend to gravitate towards zombie movies. However, this talented cast and the promise of humour does have my attention.

Luke Wilson, Rosario Dawson, Abigail Breslin, Dan Aykroyd, Avan Jogia, Thomas Middleditch and Rachel Luttrell also star.

Zombieland – Double Tap Release Dates: October 11th, 2019 (US); October 18th, 2019 (UK)…

Maniac is a new Netflix mini-series about two strangers drawn to the late stages of a mysterious pharmaceutical trial.

Executive produced by Cary Joji Fukunaga, (Beasts Of No Nation (2015); Emma Stone, Jonah Hill and Justin Theroux star…

I’m mainly intrigued because of how this reminds me of Inception (2010). I’d also certainly have been more excited if Fukunaga was for sure the writer / director but according to IMDb he simply executive produced the series.

Maniac also stars Sonoya Mizuno, Sejal Shah, Sally field and Billy Magnussen.

Maniac Release Dates: September 21st, 2018 (US) / Internet…

Director Yorgos Lanthimos’s (The Lobster, 2015) latest film is a period piece that stars Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Olivia Coleman, Nicholas Hoult and Joe Alwyn.

Set in early 18th century England, Lady Sarah – the close friend of a frail Queen Anne steps in to govern England. New servant Abigail arrives and her charm endears her to Sarah…

I’m in because the cast is great. I’m in to hear Emma Stone’s English accent and for the delightful madness that is characteristic of a Lanthimos movie. I’m also definitely in for the costume. Yes, definitely the costume!

The Favourite Release Dates: November 23rd, 2018 (US), January 1st, 2019 (2019)…

BATTLE OF THE SEXES (2017): New Trailer From Emma Stone, Steve Carell, Elisabeth Shue, Sarah Silverman…

Oscar winning actress Emma Stone’s latest movie Battle of the Sexes has her in the role of former World number one tennis champion, Billing Jean King. OppositeStone is Steve Carell as ex-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs. Directed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, Battle of the Sexes tells the true story of a very important 1973 tennis match between King and Riggs…

I’m looking forward to this one because I had no idea about the true story until now. King better win! That being the jist of how I feel. I’m a little less certain that she will because Carell’s character is a hustler after all. But then, this is a Hollywood movie.

Also, I just realised that the only Billie Jean I’d know of up to this point is the one in Michael Jackson’s classic song, ‘Billie Jean’. No doubt that Billie Jean King is NOT the one M.J. is singing about.

Battle Of The Sexes Release Dates: September 22nd, 2017 (US), November 24th, 2017 (UK)…

Sarah Silverman, Austin Stowell, Natalie Morales and Jessica McNamee also star.
