I know that some people hate watching movie trailers because it often gives away the whole plot of the movie. But, I looooooove movie trailers. I like to get to the theater early to ensure that I don’t miss them. And yes, I’ve been known to mindlessly browse movie trailers on YouTube on a rainy afternoon, dreaming of movies to come.
Here are three upcoming films that I can’t wait to see:
Charlize Theron with a mom bod? Sign me up. That clip where she spills an entire bottle of just-pumped breast milk nearly triggered PTSD. Marlo, a mother of three, is gifted a night nanny by her brother. Hesitant to the extravagance at first, Marlo comes to form a unique bond with the thoughtful, surprising, and sometimes challenging young nanny named Tully.
This looks like the ultimate middle aged chick flick and I don’t care. Diane (Diane Keaton) is recently widowed after 40 years of marriage, Vivian (Jane Fonda) enjoys her men with no strings attached, Sharon (Candice Bergen) is still working through her decades-old divorce, and Carol’s (Mary Steenburgen) marriage is in a slump after 35 years. The lives of these four lifelong friends are turned upside down after reading the infamous “50 Shades of Grey,” catapulting them into a series of outrageous life choices.
The more LAURA (Vera Farmiga) tries to set boundaries in her life, the faster those lines are crossed. Her 12-year-old son HENRY (Lewis MacDougall) is in trouble again at school. Her own penchant for adopting stray dogs and cats threatens to overwhelm their Seattle home. And her phone keeps ringing with calls she refuses to pick up—from her estranged father JACK (Christopher Plummer). Maybe Jack will stick around. For Laura, the chance to accept, forgive, and heal will never go away.
And one bonus preview …
I pinky promise you this is where I will be on Christmas Day. Lin Manuel Miranda, Emily Blunt, Meryl Streep, Angela Lansbury, Colin Firth, Dick VanDyke – Wowza! And it’s directed by Rob Marshall.
