A common belief shared by most Americans is that one of the best ways to spend your leisure time is by going to the movie theater. However, if you’re like me, you have no idea which movies are out or what to look forward to in the coming months. With this article you can skip watching the traditional trailers and decide which movie is right to spend your only day off enjoying.
You can never go wrong with Harry Styles, every teenage girl’s heartthrob. While some criticize his lackluster acting skills diminishing the reputation of his musical talent, his performance in his upcoming movie Don’t Worry Darling is one to watch. The beloved actress Florence Pugh costars with Styles in this story of an unhappy housewife in the 1950s who discovers a disturbing truth while her loving husband hides a dark secret. Other fan favorites starring in Olivia Wilde’s newest film include Chris Pine and Nick Kroll. Fans are anxiously awaiting the release of this film since its teaser released earlier this year, however the film is set to finally be in theaters on September 23. This newest thriller is expected to hit big in box offices across the country and is a good choice for any viewers who enjoy a classic love story with a grisly twist.
The next option to consider is the sequel to one of the best films of all time, according to lovers of science fiction. The movie Avatar destroyed all of its expectations and kept fans returning to it for years because of its never seen before elements of visual effects and atmosphere. The highly-anticipated sequel for this showstopper has finally been set to release to theaters on December 16th of this year. Avatar: The Way of Water has been branded, “the most insanely complicated movie ever made” following the debut of new footage. O’Donnell claims that this sequel, debuting 13 years after the original, will have better action and CGI scenes, which is one of the main reasons Avatar was so successful. The film’s cast and crew members were trained to breathe for two to three minutes underwater in order to shoot their scenes. Speaking of cast, this cast is filled with big names in the industry such as Michelle Yeoh, Sigourney Weaver, Kate Winslet, Zoe Saldana, and Sam Worthington, to name a few. To keep this synopsis short, let’s just say the return to the planet Pandora is a must-watch.
Finally, to end on a lucky number 3, it’s time to discuss My Policeman. Personally, I had only heard about the movie because of stars like Harry Styles and Emma Corin, however a more indepth look at this movie has shown true potential besides a strong cast. Set to release to theaters everywhere on October 21st, Michael Grandage tells the story of a young police officer who conforms to everything expected of him in 1950s Britain who starts a relationship with a high-achieving teacher, but longs for more. The plot develops into a complex love triangle romance that may surprise audiences because of its take on stories lost to history about queer romances. In conclusion, there are several highly-anticipated movies to add to your watchlist this year!
