Here’s a list of popcorn-grabbing, awe-inspiring and mind boggling movies that you can look forward to. Don’t they say what you do in the last few months of the year will determine how the next one begins? So make your last months of this year awesome!
1. Blade Runner 2049 – 6th October
Who: Robin Wright, Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford
What: Blade Runner 2049 marks the return of the 1982 movie that released 35 years ago. Gosling’s character runs into Ford’s character (Rick Deckard), who has been AWOL for 30 years, and let’s just say sparks fly. And looking at the cast, we hope this is a good one.
2. Chef – 6th October
Who: Saif Ali Khan
What: The official (for a change) remake of the 2014 Hollywood movie Chef, stars Khan in the lead role as the Chef. A coming-of-age movie for a father, this one (or the trailer at least) explores the fragile relationship between a father and his son.
3. Secret Superstar – 19th October (Amir Khan)
Who: Amir Khan, Zaira Wasim
What: The trailer comically opens with Khan at an awards show. Don’t let the title or the fact Khan is in it make you think it is his movie. It is about Insiya (Wasim) who wants to be a singer but isn’t allowed to be one (hence the title). Not sure why Khan had to have that hair but Wasim shows promise.
4. Geostorm – 27th October
Who: Gerard Butler, Abbie Cornish, Ed Harris
What: What happens when the machine to control climate change starts to malfunction? Even with such a sombre subject matter, the trailer is surprisingly funny. What would be interesting to see is why the satellite is malfunctioning. And when they say ‘global catastrophe’ at least they show a couple of autos if you know what I mean!
5. Rukh – 27th October
Who: Manoj Bajpayee
What: This one explores a son coming to terms with his baba’s death. It appears that Bajpayee is ‘baba’ and the movie is a non-linear portrayal of ‘what happened.’ It has enough intrigue to carry you through the trailer and bookmark it for viewing.
6. Thor Ragnarok – 3rd November
Who: Chris Hemsworth, Cate Blanchett, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo
What: Everyone seems to have gotten a haircut in this one! Instead of Tony Stark, we have Thor putting together a team to fight the Goddess of Death and we see Thor and Loki together – woohoo! And of course we have the superbly hilarious Hulk. What more do you want?
7. Murder on the Orient Express – 10th November
Who: Kenneth Branagh, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Judi Dench
What: The movie is based on a novel by the same name written by the inimitable Agatha Christie. Branagh (of the Dunkirk and Gilderoy Lockhart fame in case you need reminding) plays the beloved Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. With that stellar cast, just point us to the theatre we say!
PS: that amazing song you hear in the trailer? It is Believer by Imagine Dragons.
8. Justice League – 17th November
Who: Do we really need to tell you?
What: Let’s just say this is DC’s answer to the Avengers. Of course the human race is in trouble and thus the age of heroes has returned. Frankly speaking, I’m just pumped to see Gal Gadot on the screen again.
9. Padmavati – 1st December
Who: Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor
What: Not much is known about the plot except Padukone plays Rani Padmavati and it is a fictionalized version of her story. Though the movie has been shrouded in controversies, let’s hope it has a (relatively) peaceful release.Trailer: No trailer yet but here’s the first look
10. Star Wars: The Last Jedi – 15th December
Who: Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega
What: ‘I only know one truth…it’s time for the Jedi…to end’ – the trailer ends on this ominous note and if that weren’t enough, Star Wars takes a leave from its usual yellow font colour and makes it red (which also happens to be the colour of Darth Vader and Kylo Ren’s lightsabers). This one will be a big one and you have enough time to catch up if you haven’t already seen the previous films.
So here’s the list. Might we suggest creating reminders on your calendar so you don’t miss any?
