Will 2018 be a vintage year for great movies? Here are a number of movies I’m looking forward to seeing in the New Year.
I want to catch this film from the power of the trailer where Taraji P. Henson, in leather and heels isn’t taking any shit, and has a weapons closet that would make 007 cry. Proud Mary’s life is completely turned around when she meets a young boy whose path she crosses when a professional hit goes bad.
The cast is stellar. Billy Brown, Jahi Di’Allo Winston and Danny Glover. This female-centric action film should push Taraji P.Henson to the very top. I’m in.
This film follows a squad of astronauts aboard an international space station who are adrift in the cosmos after a particle accelerator experiment causes the Earth to vanish. VANISH! When a space shuttle appears, the crew fight for survival after a crazy and horrifying discovery. An impressive cast in this one too: Daniel Brühl, Elizabeth Debicki, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Chris O’Dowd and David Oyelowo. Out some time in February I think.
A Wrinkle In Time
This film has the power change Hollywood for the better. 2018 is populated with a raft of films by, for and about women. A Wrinkle In Time led by Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s influential fantasy novel, the cast of otherworldly characters includes Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling and Oprah Winfrey. We’ll be in for a visual feast. You’ll fall in love with Mrs. Who, Mrs. Which and Mrs. Whatsit.
Danny Ocean’s sister Debbie (Sandra Bullock) has her own gang (Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna and Sarah Paulson) and slick heist in mind, at New York’s Met Gala, rather the usual settings of the casino, where you can find most of the top ten betting sites for sports games.
Solo: A Star Wars Story
So, how did Star Wars’ Han Solo meet that Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian? Ron Howard will provide us with the answer this question (and many others I’m sure) in yet another Star Wars money making movie.
Alden Eisenreich, who was great in Hail, Caesar! is the man playing the young Harrison Ford while Donald Glover is Billy Dee Williams, which I cannot wait to experience.
Alita: Battle Angel
James Cameron has been on about this film for about ten years, working on an adaptation of Yukito Kishiro’s manga Battle Angel Alita, before moving it to Robert Rodriguez to helm. Set in the 26th century, a female cyborg, Alita (played by Maze Runner: The Death Cure’s Rosa Salazar), is rescued and repaired by Dr. Dyson Ido (Christoph Waltz).
