It feels like a good week for some movie news that has me all aflutter. Without further ado, here are 5 movie-related things I’m looking forward to right now:
1. A Monster Calls Teaser Trailer
I loved Patrick Ness’s A Monster Calls, so I’m very excited to see what the movie version brings. The monster is voiced by Liam Neeson and Felicity Jones stars as the boy’s ailing mother. I can’t wait! It’s a long ways off yet.
2. Emma Stone to star in another Matthew Quick adaptation
The book being adapted is Love May Fail, which I know next to nothing about (when are we getting Sorta Like a Rockstar made into a movie, HMMMMMM?). At any rate, I like her and I like Mike White, who wrote the script, so I’ll probably see it. (Deadline)
3. The Boss Trailer
Melissa McCarthy stars in this comedy about a Martha Stewart type of mogul who is jailed and released into the care of her assistant, played by Kristen Bell. Ben Falcone directs from a script he wrote with McCarthy. I’m sure it will be dumb, but I love them all, so…
4. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Trailer
The first teaser is out for the eagerly-awaited Potter-universe-adjacent film, which stars Eddie Redmayne (IDK about him, still) and looks like it’s going to be some fancy shit. I don’t actually have a lot to say about this one, but I know I’ll see it because of its presence in the pop culture cannon.
5. The Bronze (Red Band) Trailer
I haven’t heard much about this one, which seems to have garnered mixed reviews, but it looks like it might be funny and a total button-pusher, which I’m always down for. I like gymnastics stuff in general so I’ll definitely check this one out once it’s on demand. There are enough comedy cameos to make it worth it in that regard alone.
