Autumn is in full swing, New Year is just around the corner, and in the world of cinema, this means that passions for the Oscars are heating up, and we can already make predictions in the nominations.
Let’s take a look at a dozen hotly anticipated releases that will delight moviegoers next year.
Beasts of No Nation
Director Carey Fukunaga wrote the screenplay based on Uzodinma Iweal’s novel Beasts of No Nation, which was nominated for several prestigious awards. Idris Elba stars in the story of a child soldier in an unnamed African country. On release, it looks like the perfect mix of director, stars and source material.
She’s Funny That Way
Legendary director Peter Bogdanovich returns with an eccentric comedy starring Imogen Poots and Owen Wilson. The story of a prostitute-turned-Broadway actress (Poots) who is hired by a director (Wilson) as an escort.
Many fans were saddened by the news that Edgar Wright had left the project, writing that Ant-Man would never see the light of day. However, time does not stand still. It was announced this summer that Peyton Reed has taken the director’s place, which means that the Marvel comic will come to life on the screen, Paul Rudd will still play Scott Lang, and Hank Pym will be portrayed by Michael Douglas.
While We’re Young
Noah Baumbach wrote and directed the comedy-drama with Amanda Seyfred, Adam Driver, Naomi Watts and Ben Stiller. The life of a conservative middle-aged couple in crisis is literally turned upside down after meeting a young couple from Brooklyn.
Everest / Everest
Icelandic filmmaker Baltasar Kormakur, after two previous films with Mark Wahlberg (“Contraband” and “Two Barrels”), decided to shoot his own version based on a true tragic story that took place in the mountains in 1996. Everest is a 3D extravaganza with Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, John Hawkes, other actors and a big pile of snow.
Mad Max: Fury Road
The new Hollywood remake of the cult story with Tom Hardy from director George Miller takes viewers into a post-apocalyptic wasteland, in which there is a place for a powerful confrontation between fierce warriors. This original return promises a ton of experiences. The trailer looks gory, brutal and spectacular.
Kid 44 / Child 44
The film is based on the plot of the novel of the same name by Tom Rob Smith, directed by Daniel Espinosa. In this war drama we will see Noomi Rapace and Tom Hardy, who are scripted as a married couple. The action takes place during the Stalin era. The main character is investigating a series of murders of children.
Inside Out / Puzzle / Inside Out
Each new Pixar release becomes a kind of celebration. This time, director Pete Doctor (Monsters, Inc., WALL-E, Up) will take viewers on a journey inside the head of a young girl from the Midwest. It will be a fascinating introduction to the various emotions that dwell there.
The Hobbit director Guillermo del Toro headed to England to shoot the horror movie Crimson Peak, starring Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain. We are waiting for a story from the 19th century about a young writer (Mia Wasikowska) who finds out that her husband (Hiddleston) has something supernatural. We expect it to be good old-fashioned Gothic horror in the spirit of Edgar Allan Poe.
Following the release of Funny People, Hollywood director Judd Apatow returns with an intriguing new comedy, The Loser, about an unstable woman, played by scriptwriter and Comedy Central star Amy Schumer. Perhaps the most interesting here is the appearance of the Oscar-winning Tilda Swinton, who was attracted to the filming. We try to present her in one of Apatow’s comedies, but to no avail. We’re intrigued.
