October Movie Releases

It is October ladies and gentleman!

This month looks pretty great and, yet again, some early Oscar nominations could come out. Of course, let’s not forget that it is the month of Halloween, however, unlike past years; it seems there is only one “big” pure horror movie coming out. But let’s stop talking about them and actually get to them!

Also, Happy Early Halloween!

 

4th

Limited Release – Pain and Glory

A film director reflects on the choices he’s made in life as past and present come crashing down around him. Pain and Glory stars Antonio Banderas, Penelope Cruz, Asier Etxeandia and Nora Navas.

 

Limited Release – Lucy in the Sky (Expansion/Wide Release Later in the Month)

Astronaut Lucy Cola (Natalie Portman) returns to Earth after a transcendent experience during a mission to space, and begins to lose touch with reality in a world that now seems too small. Directed by Noah Hawley (creator/writer on TV series Legion and Fargo), Lucy in the Sky co-stars Jon Hamm, Dan Stevens, Zazie Beetz, Nick Offerman, Colman Domingo, Jeffrey Donovan and Ellen Burstyn.

 

Joker – Warner Bros., DC Entertainment, Village Roadshow Pictures, BRON Studios

Synopsis: A standalone story around the origin story of Batman’s iconic arch nemesis never before seen on screen, Todd Phillips (The Hangover movies, War Dogs) directs the exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, and a broader cautionary tale. Joker co-stars Zazie Beetz, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Brian Tyree Henry, Shea Whigham and Robert De Niro.

Thoughts: Joker has been one of those movies that Film Twitter has been going crazy for since the second trailer, and even more so, after it had its premiere in the film festival circuit, and the word of mouth was great. While I’m still on the outside of the hype train, I do hope that the movie is good, mostly for the stake of not seeing people go at each other’s throats online.

 

 

11th

Limited Release – Parasite

Directed by Joon-ho Bong (The Host, Mother, Snowpiercer, Okja), all unemployed, Ki-taek’s (Kang-ho Song) family takes peculiar interest in the wealthy and glamorous Parks for their livelihood until they got entangled in an unexpected incident.

Gemini Man – Paramount Pictures, Skydance Media, Jerry Bruckheimer Films, Alibaba Pictures

Synopsis: Directed by Ang Lee, an aging hitman (Will Smith) faces off against a younger clone of himself. Gemini Man co-stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Benedict Wong and Clive Owen.

Thoughts: Gemini Man has been in the works for quite some time now, seriously like decades. Finally, we’re getting it with Ang Lee behind the camera, and Will Smith fighting himself. So, yeah, I’m looking forward to it.

 

 

16th

Based on the novel by Christine Leunens, and written and directed by Taika Waititi; a young boy (Roman Griffin Davis) in Hitler’s army finds out his mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their home. Jojo Rabbit co-stars Waititi as an imaginary Hitler, Rebel Wilson, Alfie Allen, Stephen Merchant, and Sam Rockwell.

Thoughts: Jojo Rabbit is in a very unique position. On one hand, fans are eagerly awaiting to see Taika Waititi’s newest film that looks funny and great. On the other, it was reported that Disney is every hesitant on how they are going to promote this because they’re basically scared of losing the general audience because of the subject.

Thoughts: Ten years after the first film came out, the gang is all back and not just in front of the camera, but behind the camera too. Writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, along with director Ruben Fleischer are back to bring us back into this crazy zombie-filled world.

 

 

25th

October Movie Releases

It is October ladies and gentleman!

This month looks pretty great and, yet again, some early Oscar nominations could come out. Of course, let’s not forget that it is the month of Halloween, so there are some potentially great horror films out this month. But let’s stop talking about them and actually get to them!

Also, Happy Early Halloween!

 

7th

 

Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life (Comedy – Lionsgate/Participant Media/CBS Films)

Imaginative quiet teenager Rafe Katchadorian (Griffin Gluck) is tired of his middle school’s obsession with the rules at the expense of any and all creativity. Desperate to shake things up, Rafe and his best friends have come up with a plan: break every single rule in the school and let the students run wild. The film also stars Laruen Graham, Isabela Moner, Adam Pally, Thomas Barbusca, Efren Ramirez and Andrew Daly. The film isn’t really targeted toward me, but I’m sure if I was younger this would be up my alley.

The Girl on the Train (Mystery Drama Thriller – Universal Pictures/DreamWorks/Amblin Entertainment/Reliance Entertainment/Marc Platt Productions)

Based on the best-selling book of the same name, The Girl on the Train follows the story of Rachel (Emily Blunt), who goes on a train to London. She witnesses the “perfect” couple: Scott (Luke Evans) and Megan (Haley Bennett). But one day, havoc ensues and Rachel becomes involved in their drama and mystery of Megan. I’ve read the book and I can’t wait to see how they bring this to the big screen. Edgar Ramirez, Justin Theroux, Lisa Kurdow, and Allison Janney also star.

The Birth of a Nation (Historical Drama – Fox Searchlight Pictures/Mandalay Pictures/Bron Studios/Phantom Four/Ting Giant Entertainment)

This film has been making a lot of waves at film festivals and is even considered an Oscar hopeful and favorite. However, recent things have come to light about Nate Parker that may hinder some of the film’s success, but only time will tell. The film follows Nat Turner (played by Nate Parker, who also wrote and directed the film), a former slave in America, who leads a liberation movement in 1831 to free African-Americas in Virginia that results in a violent retaliation from whites. The rest of casts includes Penelope Ann Miller, Aunjanue Ellis, Katie Garfield, Colman Domingo, Armie Hammer, Gabrielle Union, Aja Naomi King and Jackie Earle Haley.

11th

Limited/Short Release: Shin Godzilla/Godzilla Resurgence

The Toho Godzilla is back! The film will be getting a limited and short run here in the States from the 11th to the 18th. So if you want to see the “official Godzilla” on the big screen, here’s your chance.

 

14th

Limited Release: Certain Women

Based on the short stories on Maile Meloy, the lives of three women (Laura Dern, Michelle Williams and Kristen Stewart) intersect in small-town America, where each is imperfectly blazing a trail. The film also stars Rene Auberjonois, James Le Gros, and Jared Harris.

 

Limited Release: Christine 

The film is based on the true story of 1970s TV reporter Christine Chubbuck, which will be played by Rebecca Hall. I assume many of you will assume what happens in the film based on the trailer or will look it up, but the story of Chubbuck is something I can’t believe I haven’t heard of. The film has a very impressive cast of Michael C. Hall, Tracy Letts, Timothy Simons, J. Smith-Cameron, Maria Dizzia and John Cullum.

 

Limited Release: Desierto 

A group of people trying to cross the border from Mexico into the United States encounter a man who has taken up border patrol duties in his own racist hands. The film looks like a strong and powerful film and has strong leads in Gael Garcia Bernal and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Not only that, the film is being done by the Cuaron father-son duo, Alfonso Cuaron – the director of Gravity – is producing, while his son Jonas Cuaron is directing. Desierto also stars Alondra Hidalgo, Diego Catano, Marco Perez, Oscar Flores and David Lorenzo.

 

Kevin Hart: What Now? (Concert – Universal Pictures)

Another Kevin Hart live concert film, this time from the Philadelphia outdoor venue, Lincoln Financial Field.

Max Steel (Sci-Fi Action Adventure – Open Road Films/Dolphin Entertainment/Mattel Entertainment/Playground Productions/Ingenious Media)

The adventures of teenager Max McGrath (Ben Winchell) and alien companion Steel (voiced by Josh Brener), who must harness and combine their tremendous new powers to evolve into the turbo-charged superhero Max Steel. The movie has been in the works for a handful of years now, and was even set to be released last year, but got pushed back because it wasn’t ready yet. Now, Max Steel is going to have to kick in it’s marketing into overdrive since the release date was just set in the middle of September, but I’m sure it will probably find it’s audience. The film also stars Maria Bello, Andy Garcia, Ana Villafane, and Mike Doyle.

The Accountant (Drama – Warner Bros./Electric City Entertainment/Zero Gravity Management)

A forensic accountant (Ben Affleck) un-cooks the books for illicit clients. Directed by Gavin O’Connor, The Accountant stars a star studded cast that also includes Anna Kendrick, Jon Bernthal, J.K. Simmons, Jeffrey Tambor, John Lithgow. The film looks rather good – I say like I had anything to do with it – but seeing Affleck playing a badass with a cast like this around him? Nothing wrong with that, right?

21st

Limited Release: In a Valley of Violence

Directed by Ti West (The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers), a mysterious stranger (Ethan Hawke) and a random act of violence drag a town of misfits and nitwits into the bloody crosshairs of revenge.

Boo! A Madea Halloween (Lionsgate/The Tyler Perry Company)

Tyler Perry brings one of his biggest and most beloved characters in Madea to life again in this horror comedy that sees Madea fighting off the supernatural on Halloween as she tries to keep a group of misbehaving teens safe.

I’m Not Ashamed (Drama – Pure Flix Entertainment/All Entertainment/Visible Pictures)

Based on the inspiring and powerful true story and journal entries of Rachel Joy Scott (Masey McLain) – the first student killed in the Columbine High School shooting in 1999. I don’t know how people will react to this film, but I’m sure there is an audience. The cast is filled with unknown actors and actresses.

Ouija: Origin of Evil (Horror – Universal Pictures/Blumhouse Productions/Platinum Dunes/Hasbro/Allspark Pictures)

A prequel to the film that came out in 2014, this film set in 1967 L.A, a widowed mother (Elizabeth Reaser) and her two daughters (Lulu Wilson and Annlise Basso) add a new stunt to bolster their séance scam business and unwittingly invite authentic evil into their home.

A suburban couple (Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher) becomes embroiled in an international espionage plot when they discover that their seemingly perfect new neighbors (Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot) are government spies. I didn’t think much about this, but the trailers make it seem like it could be a fun watch. Keeping Up with the Joneses also stars Patton Oswalt, Matt Walsh, and Kevin Dunn.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (Crime Drama – Paramount Pictures/Skydance Productions/TC Productions)

Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) returns to the headquarters of his old unit, only to find out an old partner and friend (Cobie Smulders) is accused of espionage. I was surprised by the first Jack Reacher, and although I wasn’t screaming for a sequel, Never Go Back looks pretty damn good. Robert Knepper, Aldis Hodge, Patrick Heusinger, Holt McCallany, and Danika Yarosh also star.

28th

Inferno (Mystery Thriller – Columbia Pictures/Imagine Entertainment)

Based on the continuing book series by Dan Brown, Ron Howard comes back to follows the adventures of Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks), who becomes a target of a manhunt and with the help of Dr. Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) and his knowledge of symbology, Langdon has to solve a crime, while also trying to escape the manhunt. Inferno does look a little more action-centric than the past films, but Hanks and Howard seem to really enjoy doing these films, so more power to them.  The film also stars Ben Foster, Irrfan Khan, and Omar Sy.

Hello there!

Can you believe it’s March already? Anyway, besides it being my birth month(!) there are some great films coming out in March that we can look forward to. Also, a large amount of limited releases to some big films, so let’s start shall we?

 

 

4th

Limited Release: Knight of Cups (Romance Drama)

knight_of_cups

Terrence Malick’s latest film follows a screenwriter living in L.A who tries to make sense of the strange events occurring around him. Like every other Terrence Malick film, it has a stacked cast that may or may not appear in the film as people who follow Malick’s work know he likes to cut whole scenes and actors out of his films. The film (may) star Christian Bale, Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Teresa Palmer, Wes Bentley, Imogen Poots, Antonio Banderas, Michael Wincott, Ben Kingsley, Joel Kinnaman, Jason Clarke, Nick Offerman, Freida Pinto, Isabel Lucas, Thomas Lennon, Katia Winter, Joe Manganiello and more.

 

Limited Release: The Wave (Drama Thriller)

bolgen_ver2

This Norwegian film has had a lot of people talking and it will finally, even in a limited release, come stateside for a release. The film follows the fear of the mountain pass Akneset will collapse and create an 80 meter high violent tsunami. I’ve heard some great things about the film and I hear it isn’t like other disaster films which should be nice to see.

 

Limited Release: The Other Side of the Door (Horror)

other_side_of_the_door

A family lives an idyllic existence abroad until a tragic accident takes the life of their young son. The inconsolable mother (Sarah Wayne Callies) learns of an ancient ritual that will bring him back to say a final goodbye. She travels to an ancient temple, where a door serves as a mysterious portal between two worlds. But when she disobeys a sacred warning to never open that door, she upsets the balance between life and death. The film looks pretty spooky, but the lack of promotion could hurt the film in the end. Personally, I’ve only seen the trailer about three – maybe two – times in theaters and that’s it, so let’s hope it finds an audience. The film also stars Jeremy Sisto, Logan Creran, Sofia Rosinsky, Jax Malcolm and Javier Botet.

 

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (Comedy – Paramount Pictures/Little Stranger/Broadway Video)

whiskey_tango_foxtrot

Based on Kim Barker’s book, the film stars Tina Fey as a Barker, a war journalist recounts her wartime coverage in Afghanistan and Pakistan and the people she meets. The film has a great cast and looks pretty fun despite coming pretty much out of nowhere. Margot Robbie, Billy Bob Thorton, Martin Freeman, and Alfred Molina also star.

 

Zootopia (Animation – Walt Disney Pictures/Walt Disney Animation Studios)

zootopia_ver3

Disney is back with pretty fun concept. Zootopia is a city that is populated by walking and talking animals and follows a fast-talking fox named Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) who is tries to make it big but is on the run when he’s framed for a crime he didn’t commit. However, Zootopia’s top cop, a self-righteous rabbit named Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), is following him but both become targets of a conspiracy. This leads them to have to team up. The film looks pretty great so far and with the directors of Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph, I think the film is in good hands. The voice cast also includes Idris Elba, Alan Tudyk, J.K. Simmons, Bonnie Hunt, Jenny Slate, Katie Lowes, Octavia Spencer, Shakira and Tommy Chong.

 

London Has Fallen (Acton Thriller – Millennium Films/Gramercy Pictures/LHF Film/G-BASE)

london_has_fallen_ver4

The sequel to Olympus Has Fallen now takes its sights to London, where the world leaders including President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) and his Secret Service head Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) go to the funeral of London’s Prime Minister. When there, they discover a plot to assassinate all the world leaders and Banning takes it upon himself to stop the plot. The film actually looks a little better than I thought it would so I’m partially looking forward to it. London Has Fallen also stars Morgan Freeman, Jackie Earle Haley, Angela Bassett, Charlotte Riley, Robert Forster and Melissa Leo.

 

 

11th

Limited Release: Eye in the Sky (War Thriller Drama)

They begin to set up a drone attack with their pilot Steve Watts (Aaron Paul), they find out that the attack is in trouble when a child is in the blast radius. The film looks like it is really going to push some buttons and asks if the ends justify the means. The film also stars Barkhad Adbi, Jeremy Northam, Phoebe Fox, and Iain Glen.

They may agree to a causal affair, but eventually Charlie is questioning whether he may actually want more.

ten_cloverfield_lane

Waking up from a car accident, Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), finds herself in the basement of a man (John Goodman) who says he’s saved her life from a chemical attack that has left the outside uninhabitable. The film also stars John Gallagher Jr. and is directed by Dan Trachtenberg, who directed the great short film Portal: No Escape, based on the popular games Portal. But, the big thing about this film is that producer J.J. Abrams says it is a “blood-relative” to Cloverfield, so it’s the closest thing to a sequel that many fans have wanted.

 

The Brothers Grimsby (Action Comedy – Sony Pictures/Columbia Pictures/Village Roadshow Pictures/LStar Capital/Working Title Films/Four by Two Films)

grimsby

Directed by Louis Leterrier, a new assignment forces a top agent Sebastian Grimsby (Mark Strong) to team up with his football hooligan brother Norman ‘Nobby’ Grimsby (Sacha Baron Cohen). The film looks pretty funny and I’m not the biggest Sacha Baron Cohen fan, but I am a huge Mark Strong fan so this is one I’m going to watch. The film also stars Penelope Cruz, Isla Fisher, Rebel Wilson, Annabelle Wallis, Gabourey Sidibe, David Harewood, Scott Adkins, Tamsin Egerton and Ian McShane.

 

 

16th

Miracles from Heaven (Drama – Sony Pictures/TriStar Pictures)

18th

Limited Release: Midnight Special (Sci-Fi Drama)

midnight_special

The film follows a father (Michael Shannon) as he takes his son (Jaeden Lieberher) on the run after he learns his child possesses special powers. The film looks like a nice throwback and isn’t putting all its attention on the superpowers, but more on the family aspect which could lead to a great film all together. The film also stars Joel Edgerton, Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver, Dana Gourrier, and Sam Shepard.

 

Limited Release: The Program (Drama)

program

An Irish sports journalist becomes convinced that Lance Armstrong, played by Ben Foster, performances during the Tour de France victories are fueled by banned substances. With this conviction he starts hunting for evidence that will expose Armstrong. The film is based on David Walsh’s book and the film itself looks pretty interesting and already has early buzz going for itself.

 

The Divergent Series: Allegiant (Sci-Fi Adventure – Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment/Red Wagon Entertainment)

divergent_series_allegiant_ver4

Part one of the two-part finale for the Divergent series. The film finds Beatrice Prior (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) venturing into the world outside the fence and are taken into protective custody by a mysterious agency known as the Bureau of Genetic Welfare. I only watched the first film and I wasn’t really that impressed. I didn’t even the watch the sequel so suffice to say, the film’s just aren’t for me.

 

 

25th

Limited Release: I Saw the Light (Musical Drama Biography)

i_saw_the_light

The biography drama tells the story of Hank Williams, played by Tom Hiddleston. Hiddleston looks and sounds great as the legendary and great Hank Williams so I can’t wait to see him pull this off. The film also stars Elizabeth Olsen, David Krumholtz, and Bradley Whitford.

 

The Disappointments Room (Horror Drama – Relativity Media/Demarest Films/Media Talent Group)

my_big_fat_greek_wedding_two

After spending most their time focusing on their troubling teenage daughter, Toula (Nia Vardalos) and Ian (John Corbett) are facing marital problems while also having to deal with yet another Greek wedding – this time, even bigger and fatter. The talk all these years have finally proven to be true as the sequel will finally come out. The first film is beloved by many – it’s been a long time since I’ve seen the first one so I want to watch the first one again – so I’m sure those fans will turn out for this one.

 

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Action Adventure – Warner Bros./DC Entertainment/Syncopy/Dune Entertainment)

batman_v_superman_dawn_of_justice_ver7

After all the years of wanting it, comic book fans are finally getting our wish: Batman and Superman on the big screen, together! The film sees Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) taking back the mantle of Gotham City’s well known vigilante, Batman, taking on Metropolis’ hero Superman (Henry Cavill) fearing that his god-like powers are going unchecked. However, as the two battle each other, a new threat takes advantage and rises to power. The film will begin DC Cinematic Universe and led to other superhero films and introduce Diana Prince/Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Arthur Curry/Aquaman (Jason Momoa). The film has been taking a while to finally bring hardcore fans in, but just about everything looks great to good. Of course, some things still look a bit off and will have to win us over, but hey, surprises come in many forms. The film also stars Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), Holly Hunter (Senator Finch), Laurence Fishburne (Perry White), Jeremy Irons (Alfred), Tao Okamoto (Mercy Graves), Ray Fisher (Victor Stone/Cyborg), Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Thomas Wayne, and Lauren Cohan as Martha Wayne.
