And no, we’re not talking about your steps…
Nor are we talking about Donald Trump’s Twitter feed or the new season of Ozark (although those too). We’re talking about the movie dates we’ve already got lined up…
1. Fifty Shades Freed
Did you read the books? Don’t answer… We know you did. Everyone did. The final book in Christian Grey and Ana’s saga wraps up in Fifty Shades Freed. Expect marriage and, erm, bondage just in time for Valentine’s Day. In cinemas in February 2018.
2. A Wrinkle In Time
Disney has given Madeleine D’Engle’s book the five-star treatment as it follows the story of 14-year-old Meg Murray. When her scientist father disappears, Meg enlists the help of her crush and his brother to find him on a journey that spans space and time. In cinemas in March 2018.
3. Tomb Raider
It’s the reboot of the role that reminded all of us that Angelina Jolie is a grade A bad-ass with Alicia Vikander starring this time as Lara Croft. She trained like a beast for the role and the action is off the charts! Plus, big chunks of it were shot right here in Cape Town. In cinemas in March 2018.
4. Deadpool 2
Need we say more than Ryan Reynolds, red suit. Good lord, he’s a handsome man with a skill for making us crack up. And he’s back at it in this blockbuster sequel. Except all the good times to keep rolling. And a whole lotta swearing. We kinda love him for that too. In cinemas in May 2018.
5. Where’d You Go Bernadette
Great cast in Cate Blanchett and Kristen Wiig and a great book too. Bernadette, a reclusive architect, disappears and her 15-year-old daughter Bee has to dive into emails, documents and secret correspondence to find her. In cinemas in May 2018.
6. Oceans 8
Sandra Bullock heads up this year’s heist crew – #sorrynotsorry. She’s Danny Ocean’s estranged sister (of course she is) and she’s planning to hit the star-studded Met Gala. Also starring Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling and Sarah Paulson. Cannot. Wait. In cinemas in June 2018.
7. The Girl In The Spider’s Web
Three cheers for fans of Steig Larsson’s Millennium trilogy. This is the film adaption of the first book since David Lagercrantz took over the writing creds, with Claire Foy taking on Rooney Mara’s original role as Lisbeth Salander. In cinemas in October 2018.
Pass the popcorn.
