Olaf’s Frozen Adventure

Olaf is back !

This looks so sweet. After seeing the short film which was centered around Spring, now we get to see them at Christmas time. And this is my favourite holiday. December is my favourite month. Frozen is one of my favourites films. So I couldn’t be more excited. Especially because it’s linked to Coco, the newest Pixar Film. We will have new songs about Christmas and family. I mean, who wouldn’t be excited? I do hope they don’t milk the story too much. I’d rather see a full length second film really soon, then 10 little short films. Disney get at it.

Flatliners

Students go further than ever to get a rush

This movie started out looking like a movie about students and partying, but then took a turn for the worse. Actually for the better, because it seems like a really interesting movie with great actors, a lot of possible crazy plot points and amazing action scenes. The concept is actually so interesting and one that has been touched upon here and there, but not in a full-blown movie. I can’t wait to see what they do with it and how it’ll turn out. I hope it doesn’t get stuck in its seriousness about the afterlife, but that they focus on the thriller aspect of the movie.

Jungle

Daniel Radcliffe is stuck in the Jungle

What is it with movies lately, this is the second trailer where the story takes us a certain way at first, and then turns it completely around and goes the thriller route? It’s build the entirely same way as Flatliners. First giving us a more ‘Into the Wild’-vibe. Daniel Radcliffe is on a journey around the world, travelling, experiencing life as it comes, seeing beautiful new places. Then he meets someone who takes him and a few others into the jungle to explore and leaves them all behind and then shit happens. It does seem like a great movie, with a lot of action and suspense, but the way the trailer was built, just reminded me a lot of the other one. I’m not sure I’ll see this one in cinemas though. Depends a bit on the second trailer. I’m more into the sci-fi storyline of Flatliners.

Goodbye Christopher Robin

story of the creator of Winnie The Pooh

This seems like such a cute movie, a bit like Paddington. The images look great and from this first look it seems a perfect blend of cinematography and music. I’m excited to see how Margot Robbie’s British accent will be. But I’m mostly excited to see how they’ll tell the story. I hope it will be full of fantasy, really putting the stories they tell on our screens in combination with their actual story. Just a bit of a mix like with Big Fish. We’ll have to wait and see. But I’ll be sure to check this one in cinemas.  

Daddy’s Home 2

Meet the Fockers #2

I wasn’t really interested in the first film, but this one seems actually really funny. Plus, I must be honest, I’m a sucker for a good Christmas movie. It does remind me a lot of Meet the Fockers and Meet the Parents. But with Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell it will have it’s own type of humor. And I can’t wait to see Mel Gibson and John Lithgow clash. This will be one I will watch in the month of December, at home, and add to my pile of Christmas movies to get me excited for the holidays. I’m already in the mood for it. ^^

Home Again

Another Romantic Comedy with Reese Witherspoon

Now this second trailer has me a bit more excited for this film. The short sentence I read on IMDb, doesn’t really come over in the trailer though. I didn’t get the feeling they were moving in with her and her family, but I do think this will give a more interesting twist to the story and i can’t wait to see how it will turn out. I won’t go see it in cinemas, but I’ll pick it up when I want to watch a movie on a lazy night or for a fun girlsnight.

What do you think? Are any of these films on your watchlist? And which ones will you be seeing in cinemas?

The Mountain Between Us

Idris Elba and Kate Winslet try to survive

I don’t really know what to think of this movie. It’s packed with star power. Idris Elba and Kate Winslet are both great actors with different awards behind their names and now they are acting together in a disaster movie. Do they want to attract award nominations and make a really serious movie about survival, or do they just want to make a good disaster movie, full of action, survival and suspense? I just don’t know and this bothers me a bit. Normally a trailer is more ‘open’ about the way they want to take this movie, but here I frankly don’t know. I prefer to know it before I watch a movie so I can put myself in the right mindset. Maybe trailer #2 will give me another perspective on this. I will watch it, but probably not in cinemas.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard

Funny and Action, I’m in

Now, this seems like a fun movie. With Ryan Reynolds as the bodyguard charged with protecting Samuel L. Jackson as the hitman, this movie has a lot going for it. Next to them we can also see Salma Hayek and so many others. It seems to has a nice plot, a lot of crazy action scenes and gives of a little bit of a Deadpool and Kingsman vibe. This will definitely be one I’ll be seeing in cinemas, just to experience it in all its glory on the big screen.

Murder on the Orient Express

A huge cast tackles this well-known tale

This was a trailer I waited so long for and it looks great! The huge cast they got together is just so impressive that I’m sure this film will be amazing. The cinematography looks great. The music seems on point. The graphics are perfect. It all seems so well put together and the tension is already real in the trailer. I can’t wait to see this great story turned to the big screen again with some of the biggest stars of the moment. November can’t be here quick enough.

Coco

The latest Pixar Movie

Yes, Pixar is back! And this seems like the cutest film ever. I already saw the teaser trailer, but here we get to see more of the story and the feel of the movie; At first sight, it does remind me a bit of ‘The Book of Life’, but I hope the story takes us a totally different way. I think they will focus more on family and the differences between their worlds. The images and graphics look great, as per usual with a Pixar movie and I’m sure it will hit us right in the heart. Definitely one I will watch in cinemas.

Black Panther

Damn

I like where Marvel is heading with this one. I watched it three-four times in a row just to be sure that I catched up on all the little details. Because, wauw. The way they blend African culture with the modern world is amazing. The action scenes look mindblowing. The costumes are ridiculously gorgeous and the story will be, in my opinion, one of the more interesting ones in the Marvel universe. Only negative point is that we’ll have to wait until February of next year until we can see it.

What do you think? Are any of these films on your watchlist? And which ones will you be seeing in cinemas?

Star Trek: Discovery (Netflix)

Netflix gives Star Trek a go

It’s quite interesting to see the different movie franchises taking the step to the small screen. And here we even get a franchise that started on the small screen, jumped to the big screen and is now leaping back to small screen. And with Netflix it’ll come even to our phone screens. I’m actually excited about this one. It seems great and the production design seems out of this world. I just hope it doesn’t go the way the current Marvel stories are evolving into. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how it’ll go.  

From the Land of the Moon

Marion Cotillard at her best

This movie looks so great. It gives me the feeling of a beautiful European art film. Marion Cotillard is great and is back to what she can do best: deep and dramatic roles. This film will probably rip my heart out, throw it on the ground and stomp all over it. It’s been a long time since seeing such a film that got me really excited, with an interesting story and cast. So I’ll definitely check this one out on the big screen.

Paddington 2

Yes, he’s back

When it was first announced they were making a second Paddington, I was a bit hesitant. I loved the first one so much and I didn’t want them to screw it up. But now after seeing this first teaser I’m actually really excited. Paddington is really sweet and I do have the feeling the family is even more involved in this story. I can’t wait to see what they all get up to and what the story will be all about.

Rough Night

Euhm… What?

This just seems so wrong. It looks like one of those films again. I think they want to make another movie with strong women, to empower us, but I don’t think they are hitting their mark. It seems pushed. It seems strained. This is a perfect movie to watch with my friends on a slow saturday night, but not on the big screen.

Logan Lucky

Steven Soderbergh is here to wauw us again

With a cast of Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, Seth MacFarlane, Adam Driver and Riley Keough, this movie can’t be anything but great. And especially with Steven Soderbergh in the director seat and with this amazing trailer, this is a movie I’ll definitely see in cinema’s. It looks crazy and so much fun and I… Can’t… Wait… 😀

Victoria and Abdul

The queen and her friend invite us

This movie and the story, the story that is known by everyone, this will be a great one. This will touch everybody. This certainly will touch me. And with Dame Judi Dench, you know the acting will be on point. I don’t even want to tell more about it, because this is certainly one I will watch. And the sooner it gets out, the better.
