Just some awesome movies I can’t wait to see until the end of the year
Ok let’s talk about movies. Or better yet…. Let’s talk about upcoming movies. The ones that we are waiting to be released soon. Like reeealy soon. And by „WE“ i mean „ME“ 🙂
Sure, there will be another Star Wars movie coming to theaters at the end of the year, but in the months leading to The Last Jedi, there’s Blade Runner 2049, Marvel’s latest installment Thor Ragnarok, and of course Daniel Day Lewis’ last movie, Phantom Thread (in limited release).
Written and directed by the talented Paul Thomas Anderson, Phantom Thread is not just highly anticipated movie, it’s also one of the strongest Oscar contenders of the year. I’m a massive PTA fan, so his latest work is gonna be a treat for me.
