This year of film is definitely going to be worth the indulgence, with the likes of classic childhood stories coming into live action and long running franchises making a huge comeback. With very high expectations from these films to make a huge profit in the box office, I put my 2 cents into the selected films on why I will be watching.
The Little Mermaid (UK release 26 May)
If you were like me and had a whole collection of Disney books as a young child, then you would know the Little Mermaid was most likely on your top 5. Even though the story is well known, having a well established artist such as Halle Bailey to play the iconic character Ariel is a perfect fit. Her voice is sweet and heavenly and bears the likeness of a supernatural being. In my checklist, that's ticks across the board. Am I interested in seeing some kind of plot twist or and added storyline that's a little different to original story? Sure, why not. Either way, I'm going to be keeping my eyes peeled.
Fast X (UK release 19 May)
10 films in and the Fast and Furious franchise has finally reached its benchmark. High expectations and an all star cast is definitely set to shake the film industry by storm. The real question is, has the Fast and Furious just opened a door for the next collections of films or does this mark the end of such a successful run? The only way to find out is by watching and I sure will be doing that.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (UK release 2 June)
Another iconic and extremely recognisable character that will surely be a success upon release date. It has definitely been impressive on how Spider-Man has been kept alive and relevant with so many twists and turns. This character deserves all kinds of praise. With there being no rules, its exciting to hear that this film will span across universes with different versions of Spider-Man and how all of their paths will crossover with one another. Sound complicted? It sure does but what better way to see this unpack than in the cinema!
Barbie (UK release 21 July)
Now when I got the news Barbie was being developed into a film, this 100% caught my attention. I had so many questions, who will be playing this statement character? How will it transfer to the big screen? What will the storyline be and will it meet or exceed our expectations? Luckily I won't have to wait too long as its official realise will be this summer. There were many press stories films taking place published all over the press so we did get little insight of what the film will 'look' like. However, guilty pleasure an all, I will be checkin' it out and yes, I'm excited.
