Elliot Wilkes takes a look at some of the movies which may (or may not) be available in cinemas soon.
This is one film I am particularly excited for! This action comedy stars Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool, Hitman’s Bodyguard) as a non-playable character, or NPC, in an online videogame who suddenly gains self-awareness and attempts to become the new hero of his crime-ridden fictional city. This inevitably causes confusion and excitement within the gaming community but concern from the game’s developers. Also starring Jodie Comer (Killing Eve), expect to see top class ironic comedy as well as over the top action and violence. The film is currently set to release in the UK on the 11th of December.
Death on the Nile
The follow up to the excellent remake of Murder on the Orient Express, Kenneth Branagh (Dunkirk, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets) returns to the role of legendary detective Hercule Poirot in this stunning crime drama. It is an enticing tale of mystery as a seemingly perfect couple’s honeymoon is abruptly ended and there is a stench of jealousy in the air. With the Egyptian backdrop to add to the mix, this is set to be an absolutely gorgeous film which is expected to hit cinemas on the 18th of December.
Wonder Woman 1984
Don’t be misled, this film was not made in 1984, it simply takes place in 1984. The sequel to Wonder Woman (2017) but also set before the events of Justice League (2017), this film attempts to build on what Diana Prince(Gal Gadot, Fast & Furious, Keeping up with the Joneses), has been doing between movie appearances. Set during the Cold War, Diana’s life takes an unusual turn when former lover Steve Trevor (Chris Pine, Rise of the Guardians, Horrible Bosses 2) miraculously reappears having being presumed dead. DC comics hasn’t had the best reception when it comes to their current cinematic universe however this film may break the trend with Rotten Tomatoes giving it the number 2 spot on their list of ‘64 Best Superhero Movies of All Time’. Release date is expected to be the 26th of December.
