Five New Movies That Will Get You In Theaters This Season – The Scribe
Plush reclining seats. Immersive screens. Contraband snacks. It’s time to go back to the movies.
The list of new films is long, with many finally released after delays related to the pandemic, but here are five films that I personally look forward to seeing in theaters sooner rather than later.
No time to die (October 8)
The highly anticipated next installment of the James Bond franchise will finally hit US theaters this weekend. Daniel Craig dons the costume one last time to join an action-packed mission that pulls Bond himself out of retirement.
Set in a variety of international locations, Bond will leave the tranquility of Jamaica to track down a kidnapping victim and ultimately pursue a villain played by none other than Rami Malek.
There’s nothing quite like the promise of badass action footage, top-notch cast, and a theme song written and performed by Billie Eilish to get me out and into theaters on October 8th. Following the UK premiere last week, “No Time to Die” has already broken box office records and continues to receive high marks.
Dune (Oct 22)
Dubbed an “epic sci-fi” movie, “Dune: Part One” will attempt to fill a “Star Wars”-sized hole in the hearts of sci-fi fans. New, quality sci-fi action movies are a rarity these days.
Adapted from a 1965 bestselling novel of the same name – which is the first part of a franchise with more than two dozen novels – “Dune” could be the next big thing.
The film takes place in a futuristic society on a planet called Dune which is covered with deserts. The plot revolves around a local spice from the planet and endows consumers with superhuman qualities.
The cast features Timothée Chalamet as the son of Rebecca Ferguson and Oscar Isaac’s characters. Chalamet will be joined onscreen by the remarkable Zendaya. If nothing else has intrigued you so far, this powerful pair should.
La Dépêche française (Oct. 22)
I cannot express in words how excited I am to see “The French Dispatch”. In February 2020 (yes, 2020), I came across the trailer for this new masterpiece from filmmaker Wes Anderson and thought that waiting that summer to see the feature film would be impossible.
I had no idea my wait would be exponentially longer due to the pandemic – but now the wait is almost over!
An absolutely spectacular cast with Timothée Chalamet, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Adrian Brody, Frances McDormund and Benecio del Toro (seriously, I could go on and on) will animate three storylines set in a 20th century French newspaper.
Based on a plot summary, the film is a “love letter to journalists” and as a student journalist I am delighted with the potential obsession I will have with this film once it is released. October 22.
Last night in Soho (October 29)
A dazzled psychological horror in a rich aesthetic of the 60s? With Anya Taylor-Joy? How could I not include this dark and ominous new feature on my list!
Rising actress Thomason McKenzie transforms into aspiring fashion designer Eloise who takes a step back in time, sparking a sensation similar to Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris”. However, “Last Night in Soho” should be much darker.
Eloise’s character takes on Taylor-Joy’s character, Sandie, only to discover that life in the ’60s isn’t as glamorous as it originally thought.
Sleek and thrilling in a single female-led feature, I expect some serious thrills and thrills from “Last Night in Soho”.
Gucci House (November 24)
Adam Driver and Lady Gaga take on the lead roles in this crime drama based on real events within the Gucci fashion family.
The film promises to be outrageous, murderous and sensational, based on a book of the same name.
Driver will once again portray a divorcee on the big screen – two years after his Oscar-nominated performance in “Marriage Story” – but this time with a more morbid result, as anyone who knows about the divorce of Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga) and Maurizio Gucci (driver) ) may know.
If the production design is as glorious as the Gucci brand, the plot as dramatic as the actual events, and the main cast as loud as the previous performances set them up, I think we’re all set for an award-winning experience. .
