Yep, New Alien. New Star Wars - like Episode 8?
John Wick 2 was on my list, as was Hidden Figures.

The Belko Experiment wasn't on my radar, but now it its.
I had lost track of Melanie Diaz, but here she is. Plus The Godfather of Green Bay.

The cast for Bad Batch looks promising:

I have no idea why Life wasn't in this thread, I knew about it and was looking forward to seeing it - now the trailers are revealing even more.

Had not heard of Atomic Blonde or Dunkirk.
You must be hoping for an upgrade in Thor.
The trailer for Baby Driver made me think it was for teens.

The rest look good.

Hi guys,

See my brief review re: Ghost in the Shell 2017 - I was looking forward to this film.

Atomic Blonde (Charlize Theron) - I was not aware of this movie until I went to see Arrival and it was in the coming attractions. Think "The Long Kiss Goodnight" with Geena Davis and Samuel Jackson.

Baby Driver - same thing here, never heard of this movie until I saw the poster and a trailer in the theater. And yes, it's a kind pf teen movie; here's a description: Talented getaway driver Baby relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the business. Boy meets girl, boy wants to go straight, Crime boss won't let him. Sounds like FUN! By the way, Kevin Spacey is the crime boss.

Should be good, it's written and directed by Edgar Wright (Ant Man, Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Hot Fuzz and World's End) to name a few of his films.

Dunkirk - about a infamous WWII battle in France (wasn't it mentioned in Edge of Tomorrow?); written and directed by Christopher Nolan. Should be good.

Thor - Yes, I'm hoping for an upgrade.

Dark Tower. Sci-fi - check. Western - check. Whedonverse alumni Franz Kratz - check.
I have not seen a trailer yet, but looks interesting.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1648190/


Regarding Dunkirk - wasn't it a non-battle? Is that what it was famous for? From the trailer, it seems the big deal was that military ships could not save the troops, but it was only common boats, fishermen, who rescued them. Is that the gist?

OK, it looks like there was a Battle of Dunkirk, but this film is not about that, it is about the Dunkirk Evacuation, which was a separate incident.

I am a bit fuzzy about 1940 WWII in Yurp. I'm better with 1941+ or Pacific details from 1940ish.




With Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz under his belt, I should reconsider trying out Baby Driver.

I think I'll be watching The Promise, although it wasn't on my radar too long ago, and it seems to be dated 2016.
But the cast looks quite good.
And there is a character named Hakan.

SGG has pointed out that Blade Runner 2049 will be directed by the same who did Arrival.
Now it is getting higher on my list.

Hey JSF,

I too know little of the "Battle of Dunkirk" except that it was WWII, British soldiers and what not, but apparently you're right. Should be a good film because it's a good story.

Dark Tower - I know little of this movie, except that it was a Steven King novel. Oh and that Idris Elba is starring and being directed by a little-known Danish filmmaker; so it should have that European flavor (much like
that of Arrival with Villeneuve, the French director).

Yep, Ridley Scott is Exec Producing. Take a look at the trailer and see for yourself....

I will follow Villeneuve anywhere.

Wait, there's more...

It seems that he's hot now. See below about DUNE!

The Dune reboot is well on its way!  Legendary Pictures nabbed Denis Villenueve earlier to be the director, and now they know who is writing it!  Find out more about the legendary writer below!

Eric Roth: has been chosen to write the Dune screenplay. Who is he? He wrote the screenplays for Munich, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and the classic Forrest Gump. Not too shabby!

Autopsy of Jane Doe

I had seen it listed as a December 2016 release, but now I've seen it listed as a 2 May 2017 release. If so, I'll want to catch it.
