This blogpost addresses something that all movie lovers are dealing with. I’m talking about the overload of movies that are premiering constantly. For myself, I have a list of movies that I really want to see, but since there are not enough hours in my days, I will probably never see the light at the end of that list. Adding to that problem is the constant production of new, amazing movies that I, as fervent movie addict, can not, and will not, ignore. So, those are added to that same list.
This will be an attempt to organize and control the input for my to watch-list. But maybe it’s also just an excuse to watch those addictive trailers over and over again, until I find the time to go see the real thing. Enjoy!
1. Pitch Perfect 2
In cinemas: now
After a humiliating command performance at Lincoln Center, the Barden Bellas enter an international competition that no American group has ever won in order to regain their status and right to perform.
Don’t be a meany and stop reading this post. Yes, I’m into totally predictable chick flicks that will make you feel good, laugh and are filled with music. The first movie had Rebel Wilson, vomit and someone from Twilight that didn’t sparkle or shed hair. Let’s hope this one has those too.
In cinemas: 4th of June (For the Netherlands at least)
A desk-bound CIA analyst volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.
Ever since Heat and Bridesmaids Melissa McCarthy is one of my favourite actors out there. That alone makes me want to see this movie when it comes out! That and Jude Law.
3. Jurassic World
In cinemas: June
Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park (1993), Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor’s interest, which backfires horribly.
Star-lord, aka. Chris Pratt, and dinosaurs. That’s all I’m going to say.
4. The Age of Adaline
In cinemas: 18th of June (In Netherlands. Almost everywhere else it’s earlier)
A young woman, born at the turn of the 20th century, is rendered ageless after an accident. After many solitary years, she meets a man who complicates the eternal life she has settled into.
This is a pretty interesting movie I think. The idea of immortality really intrigues a lot of people and people try all kinds of transplants and medical procedures to look young and to stay that way. But what happens if you really are immortal. Will it give you the joy of staying young forever, or will it bring only grief when all your loved ones die and you are forever left behind?
5. The King’s Gardens
In cinemas: 18th of June (Again those in The Netherlands will have to be patient)
Two talented landscape artists become romantically entangled while building a garden in King Louis XIV’s palace at Versailles.
History is something that I find truly interesting and inspiring. Beside that, this movie some has big plusses: it’s directed by Alan Rickman and he will be playing “Le Roi-Soleil” ( The Sun King). Also, Academy Award winner Kate Winslet has a lead roll, next to Matthias Schoenaerts, Stanley Tucci and Helen McCrory. I’m not too sure what to expect, the actors and the trailer make it look promising, but we’ll just have to wait en see 😉
