It occurred to me after watching/surviving yesterday’s movie trifecta that there’s quite a few movies coming up in the second half of 2017 that are definitely on my schedule.
In July there’s War For The Planet Of The Apes. I haven’t been a fan of the reboot but the wife is and so I’m going too. My main issue with the films, dating back to the original Charlton Heston movie is that the human race is a hell of a lot more savage than any other species when the chips are down. There’s no way we’d ever allow the situation to deteriorate to where the apes would become the dominate species.
Then there’s The Dark Tower, the adaptation of Stephen King’s series. I’m still not sure how they plan to address, if at all, the casting of Idris Elba as The Gunslinger in relation to one of the other major characters, Susanna. Her blatant hatred of white people – which she carried over in the books to the very white Gunslinger of King’s books – and how her character changed as the books progress was one of the better minor plot lines in the series. Still, Elba and Matthew McConaghey are great actors and it should be a film worth seeing.
Blade Runner: 2049 will be a must see, I’m a huge fan pf Phillip K. Dick, and it looks like this film is a little more in line with Dick’s original vision.
Normally, I don’t go see remakes in the theater but the latest version of Murder On The Orient Express – especially with the cast in this one – and it being directed by Kenneth Branaugh is enough reason to bend the rule in this case. The man can make a film.
Thor: Ragnorak is an automatic. But I’m passing on
