The Dirt - 22/03
I’m cautiously optimistic about this one. I have been waiting years for this movie to be made. But some parts of the trailer looked very corny and cheap. I must have read The Dirt at least 10 times by now. The book, which tells the story of the 80s rock band Mötley Crüe, has amazing tales of excess and debauchery. And I really hope this flick will bring them to life. The 80s were a wild time. And how the Mötley Crüe guys are still alive is beyond me. There is a lot of material to be used. The book covers the band’s entire career/life from late 1970s up until the early 2000s. So, I’m curious to see how they going to fit all this material in a 2 hours movie.
Us - 22/03
I think Jordan Peele may have done it again. I absolutely loved Get Out and Us looks a lot scarier. The trailer has a really creepy aesthetic. And the movie looks very unsettling and very well done. Peele worked with It Follows cinematographer, Mike Gioulakis, on this film. Which means that Us not only is going to be terrifying, but it’s also going to be gorgeous. I’m extremely excited. I can’t wait to watch this movie.
Avengers: Endgame - 26/04
“We’re in the end game now.” After that Infinity War ending, I can’t wait to see where the new Avengers will take us. The trailers told us very little about the plot of the movie. Which is a good thing in my opinion. So far all we know is that the universe is in shambles and the remaining Avengers will have to reassemble to repair the damage caused by Thanos. I love that the dark tone set on IW continued in the trailers of Endgame. And the vibe of loss and desperation is a very interesting thing to see in a Marvel movie. April 26 can’t come fast enough!
John Wick 3: Parabellum - 17/05
I am so excited for this movie! I loved both John Wick installments. And the trailer I’ve watched has absolutely everything I wanted to see in a John Wick 3 flick. The two previous movies have given us some of the most badass fighting/gunplay I’ve ever seen. And this really has become my favorite action franchise. I’m also dying to see John Wick raise hell while riding a horse. Parabellum in Latin means “prepare for war.” This flick is going to be nuts!
Spider-Man Far from Home - 05/07
According to Sony, this new Spidey movie takes place right after the events of Avengers: Endgame. That alone makes me really interested in watching this movie. But I’m also a huge Spider-Man fan so I’m very much looking forward to seeing this. I’m also pumped about Jake Gyllenhaal playing Mysterio. That is one of my favorite Spider-Man villains. And getting Mysterio in the MCU in all his glory, with fishbowl helmet and all, is so cool. Gyllenhaal has proven that he is able to play the biggest dirtbag and still somehow come off as charismatic. Dude is a great actor! At this point, I’m just a Marvel fanboy. And as long as they keep making good movies, I will give them my money.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood - 26/07
I have never been so stoked to see a movie like I am for Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. This is definitely my most anticipated film this year! The cast is amazing, and the story is set in a very interesting time period, the late 60s. It will also have some Manson family connection and Margot Robbie is playing Sharon Tate. I really hope the film will take us to the wild side of L.A. 1960s show-business. Tarantino always delivers. So, I’m pretty sure this will be awesome!
IT: Chapter Two - 06/09
The hype is real. After the massive successes of IT Chapter 1, all the signs point to a great second Chapter as well. The cast is incredible, Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, James Ransone, Andy Bean, and Bill Hader, which was perfectly cast as adult Richie. I’m pretty confident they all will be great. I also have a lot of faith in the screenwriter, Gary Dauberman, and the director, Andrés Muschietti. It was confirmed that the movie will have 80s flashbacks. It means that we will see the young cast once again, which is great news too. Hopefully, the movie will be darker than the first one and they will include more of the weird stuff from the book.
Jay and Silent Bob Reboot (currently set for a Fall 2019 release date)
Technically, this is not really a reboot. It is actually a sequel to the 2001’s Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. The movie will show Jay and Silent Bob trying to stop Hollywood from creating a reboot of Bluntman and Chronic. So basically, this is a sequel that just happens to be about a reboot. I like most of the Kevin Smith movies. And his View Askewniverse flicks are always good for some laughs. He completely changed his lifestyle since his heart attack. And I really want to see if those personal changes will affect the movie. Bottom line is, I liked Jay and Silent Bob strike back. And this whole idea of making fun of Hollywood reboots sounds fun to me. So, I’m totally in.
The Irishman (currently set for a Fall 2019 release date)
The Irishman is the new Martin Scorsese movie starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, and Harvey Keitel. Making this a must-see film for anyone. Most of Scorsese’s recent films have been with his complete creative control. Even when he was working with big Hollywood studios. And since Netflix is paying for this one and, there’s no pressure for making the 150 million that they spent on it back, Scorsese will probably make a masterpiece. I’m totally sold on this film. I completely trust Scorsese and this collaboration with Netflix is very intriguing too.
Star Wars: Episode IX - 20/12
I liked The Last Jedi and I’m looking forward to see Episode IX. I am very invested in this new trilogy and curious to see how J.J. Abrams is going to wrap things up. I’m aware that a very vocal minority of people were upset about the direction of the Star Wars franchise. But you know, haters gonna hate. And I won’t let Internet trolls spoil my fun. Never! I am excited to see the end of the Skywalker saga. And I can’t wait for the backlash that will inevitably come with it. Bring it on!
