This is not a drill! A personal favourite of mine and one of Pixar’s Principal Players, The Incredibles, is back. Not much is known about the plot, but Pixar have announced that the writer and director of the original installment, Brad Bird is returning at the helm for the sequel. Don’t let me down Brad!
I hope couture gown and Superhero costume designer Edna Mode will return. The woman behind the suit she describes as “completely bulletproof and machine washable dahling – that’s a new feature.” Edna was a highlight of the first movie.
Check out the video below for a reminder of her greatness!
Take George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon, and replace them with Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter. Yep, the cast of Ocean’s Eight is just as impressive as its predecessor trilogy Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen.
Just like the reception of the all-female Ghostbusters remake, Ocean’s Eight is sure to be a highlight of next year’s movie calendar. If you were thinking that no squad could be as cool as George Clooney’s entourage, I’ll see you Andy Garcia and raise you Rihanna. Yes, that’s her above, three from the left. See you ladies in 2018!
Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci Pachun will not be coming to a cinema near you in 2018. Instead, you will find them in Martin Scorsese’s 100 million dollar mob movie The Irishman, which will be streaming on Netflix to its 93 million subscribers in 190 countries. Is this the end of Hollywood as we know it?
The film is based on the Charles Brandt book I Heard You Paint Houses and adapted by superstar screenwriter Steve Zaillian (Schindler’s List and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). The book’s title I Heard You Paint Houses comes from criminal slang for contract killings and the blood splatter on walls. I’m sure it will go down a treat for any fans of Scorsese’s Goodfellas or The Departed.
Following on from the 1964 film, Mary Poppins Returns makes for one of the longest gaps between film sequels in history. Academy Award nominated Emily Blunt will star as Mary Poppins alongside Meryl Streep, Colin Firth and Julie Walters. According to Disney, the film is set 25 years after the original in “depression-era London”, where Poppins (with the help of friends) uses her magical skills to help the now grown up Banks family “rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives”.
Can’t wait to see what she pulls out of her carpet bag. Watch the video below to be reminded of your childhood!
