Fantastic Upcoming Movie Season!
This year is BIG for movies! We had our first huge season for the Summer movies in April-June with Avengers: Infinity War, Incredibles 2, Solo and Deadpool 2. I also enjoyed Mamma Mia 2 in July, but that’s just a fun guilty pleasure of mine. It has been quiet the past few months, but this weekend begins the Holiday movie season and OH BOY do we have some great ones coming up! I’ve been thinking about these movies for a while so I thought I would just go through the ones coming out that I am most excited to see.
Bohemian Rhapsody - 11/2/18
This biopic of Queen has been in the works for quite a while but from the looks of it, all this waiting will be worth it! I find Freddy Mercury to be fascinating and a great musical talent. I am looking forward to seeing how the band's story is portrayed as the actors seem spot on!
Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch - 11/9/18
Ok, to be honest, I am not sure how I feel about this movie overall. What intrigues me about it is that Benedict Cumberbatch is involved. All I can figure is that he wanted to add to his already expansive repertoire with voice acting. I am not sure I will see it in theaters, but I will be watching to see how it does.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - 11/16/18
I have been waiting TWO YEARS for this movie! I adore the Wizarding World and I am so excited to see what happens in this next chapter of my fellow Hufflepuff’s story line! There have been tons of theories related to this movie and while I am not clever enough to be a theorist, I have enjoyed the explanations and considering adding them to my own “head canon”.
Ralph Breaks the Internet - 11/21/18
I CAN’T BELIEVE I ALMOST FORGOT ABOUT THIS ONE!! Speaking of movies that I have been excited about forever, oh gosh am I bouncing off the walls to go see my favorite “stinkbrain”! This movie looks adorable and fun and I am going into this one with an open mind to just enjoy it.
Mary Poppins Returns - 12/19/18
So, after that barrage of great films, you get a few weeks to rest your wallet before this final gem of the year. I would have been excited to see this movie in general because Mary Poppins was a big part of my childhood. Then they announced that Lin Manuel Miranda was going to be in it and that made me NEED to see this movie! Oh, and then this most recent trailer, they showed Dick Van Dyke and I just melted! The cast is wonderful, I am touched by the story and the timeline it takes place in and I think this is my most highly anticipated movie of the season!
Ok, those are the ones I am most excited about! Some people may say “Wait, Nutcracker isn’t on this list”…and you are right….because there are WAY too many ads about it and I am just not interested in it, even with Kiera Knightly and Morgan Freeman.
What movies are you interested in seeing these last couple months of 2018? What was your favorite movie so far this year?
