And if that doesn’t sound freaky enough; many top film critics have declared this latest science fiction fantasy, del Toro’s darkest since Pan’s Labyrinth.
I, TONYA – FEB 20
Remember this from the news?
Way back In 1991, talented American figure skater Tonya Harding became the first woman to complete a triple axel during a competition.
In 1994, her world came crashing down when her ex-husband conspired to injure Nancy Kerrigan, a fellow Olympic hopeful, in a poorly conceived attack that forced the young woman to withdraw from the national championship.
Tanya Harding’s life and legacy instantly become tarnished as she was forever associated with one of the most infamous scandals in sports history.
Now comes the film, based on this true life, high-profile sports scandal:
WINCHESTER – MAR 2
We hope you’re enjoying the trailers so far!
This one’s bound to be pretty good – It has movie royalty, Dame Helen Mirren starring in it.
Her career has spanned over 5o years in which she’s achieved almost all there is to achieve in the acting world and in this, her latest release, she portrays Sarah Winchester, in the supernatural horror film ‘Winchester’: The House That Ghosts Built, directed by The Spierig Brothers.
But, of course I’ve watched it and you must be warned, based on actual events, this film looks especially jumpy and is certainly not for the feint-hearted.
The trailer made my hairs stand on end!
But if you’re brave enough, go for it! But I wouldn’t want to watch it on my own: :-/
MARY MAGDELENE – MARCH 16
‘An authentic and humanistic portrait of one of the most enigmatic and misunderstood spiritual figures in history.
This biblical biopic tells the story of Mary (Rooney Mara), a young woman in search of a new way of living.
Constricted by the hierarchies of the day, Mary defies her traditional family to join a new social movement led by the charismatic Jesus of Nazareth (Joaquin Phoenix).
She soon finds a place for herself within the movement and at the heart of a journey that will lead to Jerusalem’.
But will the ‘untold story’ live up to its biblical proportions and add something to part of what some believe to be the greatest story ever told? Tell us what you think
TOMB RAIDER – MARCH 16
Good old Crofty is back!
Once every school boy’s fantasy, Lara Croft continues to go from strength to strength after her video game debut back on the Playstation One in 1996! (Yes you are that old!)
Now, Alicia Vikander (Lara Croft) raises our eyebrows once more in the flesh as the latest edition harks back to young Lara’s first expedition, in which she goes to complete her father’s research and uncover ancient secrets capable of clearing her name:
PETER RABBIT – MARCH 16
Cute! Funny and cool!
And just in time to inspire the little ones and those young at heart this Easter.
Peter Rabbit springs into 2018 in this modern CGI animated classic tale.
Inspired by Beatrix Potter’s character, this unique comedy adventure looks and sounds great!
Directed by Will Gluck, the film features voice roles played by James Corden, Daisy Ridley, Margot Robbie, and Elizabeth Debicki, with live action roles played by Domhnall Gleeson, Rose Byrne, and Sam Neill.
If you haven’t already, – give the trailer a watch – as it’s bound to cheer you up and put a big fluffy smile on your face! 🙂
