A different kind of Groundhog Day
Michiel Huisman is gorgeous and he is probably the only reason I will go see this movie. There, I said it, now I can continue with my review. This movie sounds strange. The story is just so confusing and when I read the synopsis on IMDb, it doesn’t match at all with what we get to see in this trailer. I think they can do great things with this premise (an ominous pattern of events repeat itself in exactly the same way every day, ending at 2:22), but I’m afraid that when it’ll be to difficult to follow or to understand, we won’t be hooked enough to care how this movie ends. I think for me, the make or break it, will be the second trailer where hopefully it’ll be explained a bit more. We’ll see. I don’t think this is a movie I will catch in cinemas.
Blade Runner 2049
They’re back !!
Ryan Gosling… Jared Leto… Harrison Ford… Need I say more? This with direction by Dennis Villeneuve… It’s going to be amazing. I loved the original. I enjoyed the story, the way it was told, the cinematography. The use of colours, the duality between the colours and the greyness/darkness. I have a feeling this will be the same with this new movie. I hope he uses the same style and genre, but make it his own, so we can have the same character development we had in Arrival. I’m excited.
The Gifted – Fox
The X-men come to a tv-screen near you
This looks so great. I honestly didn’t know they were putting this show up. I was transfixed on any news on Netflix and their Marvel stories, that the idea of my favourites (the X-men) coming to television this fall completely passed me by. And then I saw this trailer. And now I’m excited. I hope it has this Heroes-vibe to it, but with the X-men background. I hope they don’t overdo it too much as to lose the look and feel of what makes X-men so special. I’ll definitely be checking this one out when it comes out.
Battle of the Sexes
Emma Stone vs Steve Carell
Yes, this movie has finally a trailer. And it looks amazing. Emma Stone is gorgeous and so real as Billie Jean King. And Steve Carell looks as his best self as this goofy Bobby Riggs. I can’t wait to see their fighting and knowing what (at least) Emma Stone went through as physical training for this part, I know both of them are so dedicated to this story. This is one great story and one I can’t wait to see as a film.
Animation at it’s best
The production company behind Song of the Sea and The Secret of Kells bring us this new movie with Angelina Jolie as producer. If you watch the trailer you find their style so much in what they do. I loved Song of the Sea so much. It is to date my favourite animated feature. I was transformed by the story, the images, the music… I can’t wait to see what they’ll do with this story. One set in an entire different world from theirs and what they’re used to. But I do think they’re the perfect vessel to tell this story. Because it will be told with dignity and beauty. A must-see for me.
What do you think? Are any of these films on your watchlist? And which ones will you be seeing in cinemas?
