2. Captain Marvel
I like this one significantly more than the previous two because it lines up with Marvel’s theme way better. It doesn’t take itself as seriously and highlights more of the banter and humor which I hope helps make this movie a success. It stars Brie Larson (Room), Samuel L. Jackson (Star Wars: Attack of the Clones), Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline), Gemma Chan (Crazy Rich Asians) and Jude Law (Repo Men). It’s written and directed by Anna Boden (Half Nelson) and Ryan Fleck (A Kind of Funny Story).
3. Toy Story 4
The more I see from Jordan Peele and Keegan Michael Key’s characters, the more excited I become for this movie. In addition to the returning cast, it also stars Tony Hale (Arrested Development) as the spork toy thing in director Josh Cooly‘s first major motion picture.
4. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
Normally I would take a Horror feature with a huge grain of salt. However, having GDT attached is a huge incentive for me to give even the worst looking horror franchise a chance.
The original ‘Dumbo’ has never really moved the needle for me, and in three trailers this remake hasn’t managed to either.
6. Child’s Play
Speaking of not moving the needle….
7. The Sun is Also a Star
While a weird name an sort of a cookie-cutter concept, this looks like a sweet romance. Yara Shahidi (Black-ish) and Charles Melton (Riverdale) are the stars of this Ry Russo-Young (You Won’t Miss Me) adaptation of the #1 New York Times bestselling novel.
Before this trailer, I could not have been more out on this movie thanks to the social work for it:
The actual trailer for this reboot(?) was kind of funny though! It stars Samuel L. Jackson (Star Wars: The Phantom Menace), Regina King (Scary Movie), Richard Roundtree (Shaft) and Jessie T. Usher (Survivor’s Remorse) with Tim Story (Barbershop) behind the wheel. It sort of seems like a spinoff movie for Highsmith and Danson.
