THE FRENCH DISPATCH
Director: Wes Anderson
Writers: Wes Anderson
Stars: Saoirse Ronan, Timothée Chalamet, Elisabeth Moss
A love letter to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional 20th-century French city that brings to life a collection of stories published in "The French Dispatch" magazine.
Wes Anderson is a genius, we know this. So, our verdict is nearly redundant. But with this cast, Wes’s talent – just sign us goddamn up.
FAST & FURIOUS 9
Director: Justin Lin
Writers: Daniel Casey (screenplay), Gary Scott Thompson (characters)
Stars: Charlize Theron, Vin Diesel, Amber Sienna
Cypher enlists the help of Jakob, Dom's younger brother to take revenge on Dom and his team.
This series is amazing, in every way. The cast it constantly puts out, the stunts, the narratives that keep on giving – it truly is a marvel to get nine movies produced. Long may it continue!
MINIONS: THE RISE OF GRU
Directors: Kyle Balda, Brad Ableson (co-director)
Writers: Brian Lynch (story by), Matthew Fogel (story by)
Stars: Steve Carell, Lucy Lawless, Taraji P. Henson
The untold story of one twelve-year-old's dream to become the world's greatest supervillain.
Who doesn’t love the Minions? They are addictive. So addictive in fact that the creators just had to make another movie; so here you go.
TOP GUN 2: MAVERICK
Director: Joseph Kosinski
Writers: Ehren Kruger, Eric Warren Singer
Stars: Tom Cruise, Jennifer Connelly, Manny Jacinto
After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy's top aviators, Pete Mitchell is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him.
The original movie is a classic, we guess. So, a follow-up is probably long overdue. People will flock to the theatres for this we are sure. To be fair, the trailer is brilliant.
THE GREEN KNGHT
Director: David Lowery
Writer: David Lowery
Stars: Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton
A fantasy re-telling of the medieval story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.
This teaser trailer is fantastic. David Lowery is fantastic. A24 is fantastic. Let’s just start queuing up, shall we?
