2019 is here and it promises to offer a lot when it comes to movies and TV shows but what films should you be on the lookout for? Here are a few of the movies that may define 2019.
The Lion King
Apparently another “live action” remake of a Disney classic, but this movie will in fact be a photorealistic computer generated imaging (CGI) rendering, in the recent Jungle Book style (with which The Lion King shares director Jon Favreau).
Donald Glover voices Simba, the princely cub, while Chiwetel Ejiofor is mean old Scar, the lionly uncle who is out to grab the throne for himself.
The Kitchen is an upcoming American crime comedy-drama film written and directed by Andrea Berloff, in her directorial debut. The film stars Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish, and Elisabeth Moss as the wives of Irish mobsters who take over organized crime operations in the 1970s in New York City’s neighborhood Hell’s Kitchen after the FBI arrests their husbands.
Ford v Ferrari
Ford v. Ferrari is an upcoming action biographical drama film directed by James Mangold. It stars Christian Bale and Matt Damon. Matt Damon and Christian Bale team up as American car designer Carroll Shelby and his British driver Ken Miles in a stirring tale of American triumph (Ford) over dastardly continentals (Ferrari). James Mangold (Logan) directs.
Rocketman is an upcoming biographical musical film based on the life of musician Elton John. The film is directed by Dexter Fletcher and written by Lee Hall. It stars Taron Egerton as John, with Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, and Bryce Dallas Howard also starring. The film follows John’s early days as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music up to his eventual musical partnership with Bernie Taupin. The film gets its title from John’s 1972 song of the same name.
