Almost let this one sneak up on me! With what will likely be the top movie of 2018 coming out Friday let’s get this going! I am going to add to this a NWA rating of Rose - Not going to see it, 1 DuBois Martini - Meh and 1 Hill - Gotta see it
Ready Player - Spielberg Picture. Now this has been out a few weeks and I have not see it, but I do want to catch this before it departs theaters. A great story with call back to everything from Back to the Future to Iron Giant.
A Quiet Place - A movie from Jim from The Office. All reports are this movie is awesome. Probably can’t squeeze this one into a theater show, but very interested in seeing this. Jim not only starred but also directed and his real life wife Emily Blunt also stars.
Chappaquiddick - A movie about how Ted Kennedy got away with killing a woman. The cast includes Clancy Brown, Ed Helms, Bruce Dern, Jim Gaffigan, Andria Blackman, Olivia Thirlby, and Taylor Nichols.
Rampage - The Rock, Do I need to say more? Probably not that great but Rock movies are almost always fun.
Super Troopers - A follow up to the cult classic. I am really high on this sequel!
Avengers Infinity War - A decade worth of MCU movies culminating in one of the biggest cinematic events in movie history. Has already set presale ticket records. Civil War set records, then Black Panther set records then IW sold more presale tickets than any movie in history including the previous 7 marvel movies including BO and CW … combined. Suffice it to say this will most likely be the biggest movie of 2018 and has a shot at the record for largest domestic and international box office.
May 4 - Original IW Date, wisely most studios avoided competing on this date so releases are shallow.
Overboard - Remake of the 80s comedy starring Goldie Hawn, new one starring Anna Farris:wilted_flower:
Bad Samaritan - Action/Horror flick starring my favorite Dr Who and Killgrave David Tennat. This is an indie psychological thriller about some young thieves that get caught up in a kidnapping.
May 11 - Other studios still scared of IW
Life of the Party - Melissa McCarthy vehicle, I don’t like her so I don’t have anything else to say.
DP2 - Thats Deadpool 2 for you perverts. Ryan Reynolds is back as the wise cracking marvel hero. Remains to be seen if this can hold a candle to the first one. Josh Brolin joins the cast as Cable. This movie had a change in directors after Ryan Reynolds and Tim Miller couldn’t see eye to eye on sequel. Reynolds of course won. New director is former stuntman David Leitch, which might make you say uh oh, but he did Atomic Blonde, which kicked ass.
Solo - The Star Wars folks finally get a summer movie for the first time since Revenge of the Sith! Following the early adventures of our favorite scoundrel and smuggler, we get to see how Han Solo was born. A lot of nerves here from the SW community as Last Jedi failed to capture many hearts and following on the heels of the well received but also challenged production of Rogue One. Directors and writers (the Lord brothers of Lego Movie fame) were fired after the majority of principle photography was in the can. Early cuts were supposedly so bad Disney and LucasFilm knew they had to change, brought in Ron Howard to clean up the mess. Who knows how this goes.
