The final trailer for Joker is here. The countdown is on. I am beyond excited for this movie. How about you? October 4 can’t come soon enough.
I know, I was rolling my eyes at the beginning of the trailer too. I didn’t want (or need) another movie about a magical savior and I’m glad that’s not what this is about. The intrigue is thick with ‘After the Wedding.’ A trailer can usually sell me on that alone, but then there’s also Michelle Williams and Julianne Moore. Look for ‘After the Wedding’ in theaters on August 9.
It is about time an American hero like Harriet Tubman gets a movie. This biopic covers Harriet’s story from the time she escaped slavery, through her time as a conductor on the Underground Railroad where she worked tirelessly to save hundreds of slaves. Fingers crossed the movie does her real story justice. Look for Harriet in theaters November 1.
As far as what exactly is going on in this trailer, your guess is as good as mine. As far as I can tell it’s a little slasher, some comedy, a bit of a thriller, something supernatural, and a little absurdity. I like all of those things individually, so why not mash them up and put them in one movie? Look for ‘Tone-Deaf’ in theaters August 23.
This takes the tragic story of a violent encounter between a black man and a police officer and flips that narrative so that the cop is the one who ends up dead. Culpability is inferred but I guess we’ll have to watch the whole movie to sort out what’s actually good from what’s bad and what’s right from wrong because rules and laws aren’t always the best gauge. Look for ‘Queen & Slim’ in theaters on November 27.
I don’t normally get excited for ensemble movies because they seem to consistently let me down. However, this particular gathering of actors has more than piqued my interest. To be honest, when Michael Shannon popped up, I was completely sold. Turns out I have learned to trust again. Thank you Michael Shannon. Look for ‘Knives Out’ in theaters November 27.
