Christopher Robin leads the new cinema releases and trailers August 17th 2018

Christopher RobinThis week, there are FIVE new films out for you to choose from, led by Christopher Robin. Here are the titles, with more info below:

    Christopher Robin
    Crazy Rich Asians
    The Equalizer 2 (CENSORED)
    The Happytime Murders
    God’s Not Dead 3: A Light In Darkness

Christopher Robin is… hang on, haven’t we already had this? Okay, so that was Goodbye Christopher Robin, but why do we always get two films in quick succession about a particular subject that no-one’s been too fussed about for a while? I first remember coming across this in 1991 with Patrick Bergin’s Robin Hood, and then Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves, starring Kevin Costner, which turned out a lot more successful, and is the only one of the two anyone really remembers. There are many other movies examples, since it seems to happen a lot.

Disenchantment Episodes 1-3 – The DVDfever Review – Netflix

Disenchantment
Disenchantment is the latest creation from The Simpsons and Futurama head honcho Matt Groening.

Set in Medieval times, in a fantasy kingdom called Dreamland, it centres around Tiabeanie – aka Bean (Abbi Jacobson), a hard-drinking Princess, who we first meet when she’s cheating at poker in the local pub. That’s the sort of thing she enjoys, but life isn’t all sunshine and rainbows and, for her, her father, King Zøg (John DiMaggio), tells her she has to get married, but doesn’t want to…

Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, dies aged 76

Aretha Franklin
Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, has died at the age of 76.

I first came across her as Mrs Murphy in John Landis’ incredible 1980 comedy, The Blues Brothers, where she belted out the classic track, Think, as if the Earth’s cycle of night and day depended on it.

Widows – Trailer 2 – Viola Davis

Widows has been brought forward in the UK from November 9th to November 6th.

Check out the trailer below:

What Men Want – Trailer 1 – Taraji P Henson

What Men Want
What Men Want looks like the laziest possible ‘reworking’ of Mel Gibson’s so-so What Women Want, because all it does it swap genders.

At least it credits the original writer, Nancy Myers, but who was crying out for a remake? No-one, and especially in a film with an all-black cast, where black women talk in the way they only do in films… by shouting, and no doubt one will use the words, “Go on, girl!”, especially since it comes from those responsible for the dire Girls Trip.

Green Book – Trailer 1 – Mahershala Ali

Green Book
Green Book looks like a colour-swap version of Driving Miss Daisy, as working-class Italian-American bouncer Jules Podell (Viggo Mortensen) becomes the driver for African-American classical pianist Don Shirley (Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse‘s Mahershala Ali) on a tour of venues through the 1960s American South.

Next Gen – Trailer 1 – Jason Sudeikis – Netflix

Next Gen
Next Gen is a forthcoming animated action/adventure movie about the bittersweet power of memories, and tells the story of an unlikely friendship between a rebellious girl and a runaway combat robot, as they unite to stop a madman’s plan for technological world domination.

Bagdad Café on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Bagdad Café
Bagdad Café is a slice-of-life drama that’s very weird. Early on, Jasmin Münchgstettner (Marianne Sägebrecht, below) seemingly splits from her husband after an argument, and with nothing better to do, she beds down at motel that’s part of the nearby, titular cafe until she can figure out her next move.

While there, she encounters owner Brenda (Avatar and E.R.‘s CCH Pounder, above) who hates her… but then again, Brenda hates everyone, whether they’re an employee, a guest, or just one of the drifters that frequent her establishment, such as aged hippie Rudi Cox (Jack Palance).

The Happytime Murders – Red Band Trailer 2 – The Muppets

The Happytime Murders
The Happytime Murders is still coming, whether you want it or not, and today, a new Red Band Trailer has been released.

The Happytime Murders is released in the UK on August 27th so, a bank holiday Monday. Melissa McCarthy’s Ghostbusters movie came out on a Monday. Look how well that turned out…

Check out the new trailer below:
