With summer days underway, we feel obligated more than ever to recommend some great new movie releases. We know that some of you are 100% focused on football and World Cup, but what can really replace watching a good movie?
Are you desperate to see another Halloween movie? You might have been disappointed one or twelve times, but we like to remember only the good things. It is always about the people behind the movie that leaves us intrigued. And this is where this latest reboot got our attention. This is a direct sequel to the original, made some 40 years ago. And yes, Jamie Lee Curtis will be reprising her role as Laurie Strode. We remember her as the person living in the shadow of Michael Myers, horrifying and ubiquitous masked killer. She faced him in a number of sequels, but the new movie will disregard everything besides the original, so Laurie will face off against Michael one last time. We’re excited to see a breath of new life into an aging franchise.
A Wrinkle in Time
This is an amazing project from writer and director Jennifer Lee, adapting Madeleine L’Englethe’s novel. Disney invested enormously into the production, hiring an all-star cast including Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pratt and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. Everything is pointing in the direction that we are getting a lavish film version of the much-loved book. The story represents complex entanglement of quantum physics and Christian spirituality. It begins four years after the disappearance of theoretical physicist Alexander Murry (Chris Pine), whose theories on multidimensional travel are ridiculed by the scientific community. Understandably, his daughter Meg (Storm Reid) isn’t especially cheerful about this, despite the best efforts of her prodigious adopted brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe), and she struggles with bullies and low self-esteem.
A Wrinkle in Time is a winsome spectacle marked by striking visuals and enjoyable performances all around. Great treat to watch on warm summer nights.
Bohemian Rhapsody is a moving celebration of Queen, their music, and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Rami Malek is taking on the role of Mercury in the film, trying to properly represent one of the most talented and original artists of all times. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. We are following the meteoric rise of the band throughout the whole movie, enjoying all iconic songs and bound-breaking image. Though he decided to follow his own career, he suffered greatly and missed his old band mates, so he decided to reunite with them just in time for Live Aid. We all know that this was one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music.
Cast: Rami Malek, Lucy Boynton, Gwilym Lee, Ben Hardy, Joseph Mazzello, Aiden Gillen, Tom Hollander, Allen Leech and Mike Myers. The film is coming in theaters on November 2, 2018, so this is the perfect post-summer experience and a great energy shot before upcoming holidays. We wouldn`t miss it for the world!
