This is a total Fangirl moment I am not even going to lie, we have the first glimpse of Orlando Bloom back as Will Turner for the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film! When I saw glimpse like if you blink you may even miss him, but still worthy of a post. I am not really sure if the franchise can really compare to the first and even second films it’s certainly lost its way a little bit. Guess we don’t have long to see if this one will bring it back on track?
Each month I have now decided to do a preview/up and coming post of the films that are going to be coming to the cinema. So here we go for April in 2017 and which films we can look to go and see, or avoid I guess. *Note this is for UK releases*
Probably not going to be the best month of the year at the cinema but I certainly have two films that I am really looking forward to. Yes, I know that does not sound like many at all but when you take a look at the better films this month has on offer then I am sure you will fully understand.
So take a look at what is coming to a cinema near you this month . . .
I might be a little bit late to the party in Blogging about this but it’s the first real chance that I have had, it certainly will not be the first post about Mary Poppins Returns which is due for a 2018 release, at Christmas. Which is just a practically perfect idea and will do incredible at the box office. Although it currently has 25th December release for the UK, I think we will find that 26th considering no cinemas open on Christmas Day.
Idris Elba and Gemma Arterton star in ‘A Hundred Streets’, a layered and gripping drama, which takes a fresh look at the vibrant and compelling life of residents in contemporary London – destination capital of the world. Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Jim O’Hanlon directs.
‘A Hundred Streets’ border and intersect the film’s setting in contemporary London. Chelsea squares back onto high-rise estates, riverside opulence contrasts the day to day grind. It’s in these streets that our cast of characters face major choices and change in their separate lives, as they negotiate their often inter-weaving existences.
The cast’s interconnecting stories paint a picture of a society where you are often loneliest within a crowd. As tension mounts, relationships are strained, loyalties are tested and violence erupts. Yet the underlying message of the film is one of hope; if you reach out to others, life is not a lonely struggle. With nods to both Crash and Amores Perros and inspired by London life, A Hundred Streets portrays modern city life in all its complexity and will resonate deeply with those who have lived it.
Release Date: November 11th 2016
The wait is almost over for Suicide Squad to come out, the build up and release of trailers etc surrounding this one really does feel like it has been going on forever. We only have a few more weeks to wait now which is such a good thing!
I saw this for the first time the other day but did not have a chance to blog about it. The Joker is one of my all time favourite characters and it looks like Jared Leto has really taken it to a different place again. Certainly looks like a great mash up between Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson’s Jokers.
Very exciting stuff!
It’s all coming thick and fast (isn’t comic con the best) from DC. A special feature of footage from Justice League which again looks like it’s going to be rather epic, I am still holding hope they can come back from Batman Vs Superman which was rather disappointing, ok very disappointing.
Check this out!
I am not even ashamed to say that I am very excited about the film reboot of the Power Rangers next year. I totally loved Mighty Morphin Power Rangers back in the 90s when I was growing up and really wanted nothing more than to actual be a Power Ranger. The Pink Ranger, I even had a water gun!
Has it really changed that much? Well, from the new Rangers promotional photo it doesn’t look like they are going to be constantly wearing their colours.
I use Sky Movies a lot to catch up with films that I missed on the cinema release but also as an introduction to some other films that did not manage to get a cinema release. With the On Demand options as well they really do have a massive amount of films available to watch both old and new.
I thought I would start blogging more about which films are coming soon to Sky Movies for the UK based followers of Let’s Go To The Movies, making it easier for you to find a place with the latest Sky Movies news!
Inside Out – Review – From Friday 25th March
A truly fantastic film from Pixar and really will tug at your heartstrings. If you did not see this one at the cinema then you really do have to make the effort to watch it on Sky Movies when it is available! What better to watch over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend?
San Andreas – Review – Available Now
By no means the best film in the world but a great addition to the disaster film genre with The Rock as engaging as ever really pulling out all of the stops in this one!
The people over at Morphsuits.co.uk have done it again with another cool film fact poster so I thought I would share it! Considering I am not massively excited for Batman V Superman which I know is a shock as Batman is my favourite superhero but the trailers haven’t really captured me!
As Daniel Craig’s era as Bond is coming to an end (after one more, come on he has always been contracted to it right?) But I thought after completing the Bondathon I would look to see possibilities of actors who could take on the role next.
Here are the ages the different actors started and finished as Bond. Quite interesting really as I think both Connery and Craig looked older than they were in their first films. The fact Lazenby wasn’t very popular and under the age of 30 I can’t really see them picking someone very young to take on the mantel.
Roger Moore 44-57
Timothy Dalton 42-44
Pierce Brosnan 41-49
Daniel Craig 37-47
Sean Connery 31-40
George Lazenby 29
I have literally picked loads of actors who could be possibilities, split them into different ages and tried to decide if I can see them as Bond or not. Some of them though I think would work perfectly well as a bad guy, come on don’t Brit’s seems to make the best bad guys? I was originally going to come up with 7 possible actors but I thought that was pretty impossible as we really have no idea which direction they are going in. I have stayed British with the actors listed, as let’s face it we have some very talented Brits doing us proud on the big screen! Also I have picked photo’s of them in a Tux, as come on that’s a very important part of becoming Bond. James Bond.
