My ten most anticipated movies for the rest of the year! I'm so stoked to see these films once I get the chance. Please tell me your thoughts! In no particular order, my most anticipated films are...
1. Suburbicon-Despite hearing that the trailer is misleading, I'm still excited to see this film because it's a crime-comedy film co-written by the Coen Brothers, directed by George Clooney and led with stellar cast with Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, and Oscar Issac.
2. mother!-Darren Aronofsky teams up with Jennifer Lawrence for a movie that looks psychological mesmerizing and haunting.
3. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri-Martin McDonagh's first two films, "In Bruges" which I liked, and "Seven Psychopaths", which I loved, were both really well-written and did black comedy very well, and his new movie with that awesome cast led by Frances McDormand looks both depressing and darkly comical at the same time.
4. Battle of the Sexes-The third film from the married duo of Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, the film stars Emma Stone as famed female tennis player Billie Jean King when she famously played a tennis match against male tennis player Bobby Riggs, played by Steve Carrell. It looks like a lot of fun and inspiring, and I'm stoked to see Emma Stone's Oscar followup.
5. The Killing of a Sacred Deer-Yorgos Lanthimos is known for making insanely weird and dark humor, as seen in "Dogtooth" and "The Lobster", and this film looks like another entry into surreal strangeness, and the addition of Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman could elevate this film greatly.
6. Molly's Game-Aaron Sorkin's directorial debut is filled with stellar actors like Jessica Chaistan, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner and Michael Cera. Knowing how great a writer Sorkin is, I'm intrigued in how his director is.
7. The Meyerowitz Stories-Directed by Noah Baumbach and premiering at Cannes back in May, the comedy-drama looks like it could bring back dramatic Adam Sandler. It also stars Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, and Emma Thompson. This one could be a winner.
8. The Disaster Artist-There's already a crap ton of hype for this film, so I don't have anything else to add. (CONTINUED IN COMMENTS)
