Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, Tim Roth and Kelvin Harrison Jr. are the stars of Luce.

Directed by  Julius Onah, Luce is the story of parents to an adopted son from war-torn Eritrea. Said parents are forced to reckon with their idealised image of their son, after an alarming discovery by a devoted high school teacher…

This rather good trailer edit has me scared. Scared for myself, scared for Spencer’s character because no one is listening to her and scared for Luce’s parents. I’m also very curious about what the alarming secret actually is.

We all know Watts and Spencer are great actors, so I can’t wait to see what Harrison does with this role. They do say that dark characters are more fun to play, after all.

Andrea Bang, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Norbert Leo Butz, Omar Brunson and Astro also star.

Luce Release Dates: August 2nd, 2019 (US)…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Ma (2019).


In new horror / thriller Ma, Octavia Spencer is Sue Ann, a lonely woman who befriends a group of teenagers and invites them to party at her house. Everything suddenly changes when they do the one thing Sue Anne asked that they don’t.

Ma is directed by Tate Taylor and co-stars Juliette Lewis, Luke Evans, Missi Pyle, Allison Janney…

I was most creeped out by this trailer when I saw what happens just after 2:10. Excited to see Spencer in a role I didn’t see coming.

May the finished film be even more interesting and /or surprising than I imagine.

Diana Silvers, Tanyell Waivers, Gianni Paolo, McKaley Miller, Dominic Burgess and Dante Brown also star.

Ma Release Dates: May 31st, 2019 (US & UK)…

Lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) works in a hidden high-security government laboratory and is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Her life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment. Also starring Michael Shannon, Michael Stuhlbarg and Doug Jones, The Shape Of Water is an other-worldly fairy tale set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963…

Director Guillermo del Toro is all the reason I need to watch this one, but I’ll add the cast and the intriguing ‘secret experiment’ to the list. For some reason, when I read the words ‘high-security government laboratory’ and ‘secret classified experiment,’ Captain America – The First Avenger (2011) came to mind.

The Shape Of Water Release Dates: December 8th, 2017 (US)…

Starring Sam Worthington, Tim McGraw, Octavia Spencer and Radha Mitchell; director Stuart Hazeldine’s The Shack tells the story of a grieving man who’s invited to meet with God…

Going by this trailer, it looks as though Spencer is playing God herself. Wanting to find out how that plays out is reason enough for me to watch.

I also definitely want to see the film’s depiction of heaven. If you’ve read the book by William P. Young on which this movie is based, I likely already have a very good idea.

The Shack Release Dates: March 3rd, 2017 (US)…
