Hey hey hey!
Recently, I’ve become a bit of a film buff. I use that term VERY loosely. (And also funny considering until I turned 9, I think?, I used to have a phobia of the cinema hehe)
IMDB has become my favourite place to go recently, which is where I got the release date info!
Here are some anticipated films that shall be released in the UK by the end of the year! )
The Imitation Game
Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Charles Dance, Mark Strong
I’m SO excited for this film. I’m a huge fan of Benedict Cumberbatch’s. He is one of those actors who are so brilliant, surely they can’t be from this planet.
So any performance of his that has massive Oscar buzz, I’m already dying to see.
This film has rave reviews already. From Toronto International Film Festival to the London Film Festival to pre-screening buzz!
I love that this film covers such an important topic. I hadn’t even heard of Alan Turing before hearing about this film. Another factor that makes me want to see this film is Benedict’s passion and care for Alan Turing. It’s such a turn off for me when actors/musicians/etc don’t associate themselves with the things that make them famous, like they’re ashamed. Like be grateful, ya know?!
The Imitation Game is released in cinemas November 14th. (Day after my birthday!!)
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.
Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Sam Claflin, Elizabeth Banks.
Need I say more? IT’S THE HUNGER GAMES.
Mockingjay was the least favourite of mine in the book series, but the film looks HELLA AWESOME. (Professionals say hella right?)
I’m also really interested in how they’re going to split the films.
Francis Lawrence is back directing. I LOVED Catching Fire so much. I’m so excited.
Probably won’t be nominated for any Oscars, unfortunately. The Academy are super picky about these kind of films.
Mockingjay Part 1 is released November 20th!
Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Peter Capaldi, Nicole Kidman
I MEAN JUST LOOK AT THE CAST LIST.
This film looks really good. I’m also really excited for Ben Whishaw as the voice of Paddington. He’s one of my favourite actors and, like Benedict, must be from another planet.
The animation looks really good. It looks quite comedic too?! And I’m always excited for films set in London (being a Londoner myself :])
To be honest, I don’t remember reading the stories as a child so maybe this will help me make up for lost time haha.
Paddington is released November 28th.
Men, Women and Children
Cast: Jennifer Garner, Adam Sandler, Ansel Elgort
This is a very relevant film, I think. It follows different families and how the Internet affects their lives from their relationships to their body image to their communication.
What I love about the trailer is the fact there’s no verbal communication at all. It makes the trailer feel quite haunting, in my opinion.
This is also a film that’s had major buzz at the film festivals. I think it will be a very interesting film to see considering you can do anything and everything on the internet.
Men, Women and Children is released December 5th.
Thanks for reading!! 🙂
