TOP 10 FILMS NOT TO MISS THIS YEAR

Even though we’re over half way through the year, that’s not going to stop us getting excited for new movies coming out. From watching these trailers, here are some which I’m looking forward to watching…

1. Rebel in the Rye

This drama based on a true story follows American writer, J.D Salinger’s journey through serving in the army during WW2, to the lead up in which he wrote one of the greatest fiction novels of all time. Starring Nicholas Hoult, Kevin Spacey and Zoey Deutsch, this movie looks like it will capture the heart of many.

2. The Mountain Between Us

After a terrible plane crash which results in being stranded on a mountain, two strangers have to fight for survival whilst testing their physical and emotional strength to the limits. With Golden Globe winner Idris Elba and Academy Awards winner Kate Winslet, I’m sure this extremely tense drama will be receiving many awards in the near future.

3. The Hitman’s Bodyguard

An unlikely match is made when the world’s best bodyguard is called to protect the world’s hit man. Usually being on opposite sides of the gun, the two have to put their differences aside and embark on a hilarious journey including roof jumping, car chasing and A LOT of swearing. Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L Jackson star together in this comedy-action, so as a fan of both of them, I cannot wait for this to be released!

4. The Snowman

Starting with the disappearance of a women whose pink scarf is found around the neck of a snowman, detective Harry Hole starts to investigate the murders of a serial killer known as the Snowman. This chilling crime film stars Academy Award nominee Michael Fassbender, constantly exceptional performances.

5. Breathe

Being diagnosed with polio and not being able to move anything from the neck down, Robin Cavendish is given a few months to live. With the help of his wife, Robin finds the will to live and helps other disabled people. To be honest, I would say this film could be up for an Academy Award. However, it looks as if it has been done before with The Theory of Everything and Me Before You. Getting an Oscar nomination at the last awards, maybe this will be Garfield’s moment this year.

6. Wonder

Based on the bestselling novel by Raquel Jaramillo, this soul-stirring story follows August Pullman who has just joined elementary school. Finding it difficult to fit in due to facial differences, August has to deal with the cruelness of the real world. This touching story star Jacob Tremblay, Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson. Tears have filled my eyes each time I’ve watched this trailer; I can’t imagine how bittersweet this film will be.

7. Murder on the Orient Express

Sharing absolutely nothing in common apart from the need to travel from one place to another, suddenly some strangers on a train to Europe are pulled to together in a frightening murder case…and every one of them is a suspect. With a terrific ensemble of actresses and actors, this mystery movie stars Judi Dench, Daisy Ridley, Johnny Depp, Kenneth Branagh, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Leslie Odom Jr and Josh Gad (to name a few).

8. Blade Runner 2049

Being missing for the last 30 years, officer K goes on a mission to find Rick Deckard after digging up a damaging secret which has been buried for a long-time. Harrison Ford stars in this sequel thirty-five years after the original. Also with Ryan Gosling and Jared Leto.

9. Darkest Hour

Recently becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill has to make some of the biggest decisions ever made by a political leader. On the verge of Western Europe being invaded by Nazis, having his own party plotting against him and a King which is too naive, Churchill has to deal with issues which will change history forever. Academy Award winner Gary Oldman stars as Churchill in this historical drama.Hopefully this won’t jinx anything, but I can see Oscars being given out already.

10. Stronger

April 15, 2013. Jeff Bauman goes to support his girlfriend at the Boston Marathon. After losing both his legs, Jeff has to battle through his mental and physical health. Based on a true story, this heartbreaking biography-drama stars Jake Gyllenhaal Tatiana Maslany.
