Here are today’s movies that I am excited for. Enjoy!
First: The Lion King- Release Date: July 7th
Now, this trailer… okay it’s not really a full trailer, but still, I’m very excited! First thing is that it looks almost identical to the original opening of the animated movie. I know that they did that on purpose, but still, that took a lot for them to try and copy it frame for frame.
I am both really excited and skeptical. I love the original so much (grew up with it) and they have a lot to live up to. I am super happy that they got James Earl Jones back as Mufasa. I think there would have been rioting if they didn’t get him back for the role. There are others that I am also excited to see in this movie, Donald Glover, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Keegan-Michael Key, and John Oliver. There are some that I am not as happy with, but I will save judgment until the full trailer or the actual movie.
Next: Vice- Release Date: December 28th
This just looks like it is going to be an interesting look on Dick Chaney and his time in the white house. It looks kind of humorous and thrilling. I am really curious because of how these real live people are being portrayed. This wasn’t even that long ago. I mean, I remember the Bush presidency pretty well, so this is going to be something to see. Christian Bales as Dick Chaney alone will get me to see this. He looks barely like himself, it was hard for me to even know that it’s him. Perhaps award season for this movie? Who knows? We will find out soon enough.
Finally: On the Basis of Sex- Release Date: December 28th
I am so so so so excited about this. This is going to be one epic movie about an epic woman who has done so much in her lifetime and still continues to do good. After seeing her recent documentary (review coming soon), I really wanted another look at her life and the cases that she has won. I also think that Felicity Jones was the perfect casting choice. This could be another award season contender? Again we will find out soon enough.
