This trailer dropped today and I am a happy ape. I am a longtime fan of both monsters (and kaiju movies in general) and they have not been in a movie together since 1962's King Kong vs. Godzilla. It was delayed from 2020 due to pandemic and even now, is combining a theatrical release with an online one since many will, or can, not go to theatres right now.



So what movies, bumped to or always planned for 2021, are you interested in?

This one for me as well. I may have squealed a little seeing them in the same shot. Like you, I have been such a fan of both my entire life. When the trailer dropped, it was sent to me by six different people. lol

A few more at the top of my list are Dune, The Matrix 4, Nobody, and there is supposed to be a new Spider-Man movie.

I think I really just miss going to the movie theater because there were too many on my list.

I am seriously psyched for Kong vs. G-man. I'll drag Talia (I think that's her name on here) out to an actual theater for this one. I really miss movie theaters.

Rumour has it (with some possible support in the trailers) that Mecha-G is putting in an appearance, too.

You can't get there from here, because when you get there you're still here and here is now there.

Dune is one of my favorite sci-fi universes. I hope the 2021 version lives up to its hype. This film only covers the first half of the book 'Dune,' so it is probably the start of at least a two-part film series.

It's been delayed again. General release date is now October 22 of this year. World premiere will be at the Toronto film festival in September, though. Variety made the interesting point that Dune star Timothee Chalamet now has two films booked for general release on October 22 as his latest, The Many Saints of Newark, is also due out that date.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.


This one has been generating a lot of local buzz. Star Simu Liu (who was also in the cast of recently cancelled sitcom Kim's Convenience) is an alumnus of the local university so the university has been playing up that connection.

Most of what I am pumped for is series. Sandman on Netflix (based on the Neil Gaiman graphic novels with Gaiman and David S. Goyer as exec producers and writers) is one. Alas, COVID delayed filming so I think it is now planned for 2022 rather than this fall as originally announced.

The Green Knight is the movie I was trying to remember. Early reviews have been positive, at least the ones I have read and it's a terrific story. I think I have a copy of the Penguin Classics edition kicking around somewhere.

As for Dune, I am kind of waiting for reactions from people I know are familiar with the material. Lynch's version was a big disappointment (came out not long after I read the novels) and while I have a fair bit of respect for Denis Villeneuve as a director, the proof will be in the pudding.

Bond.


No Time to Die sounds like a promising entry in the series but I seem to have burned out on 007. Still haven't watched any Craig 007s.

Then you’ve missed the best Bond. Connery takes second place now due to era, acting, and motion picture quality. Do yourself a big favour, watch DC. He is spectacular.

I haven’t been to a theatre in almost two years. I wanted to see A Quiet Place 2 on the big screen with the big, Crap your pants, jump out of your skin theatre sound system. I then just noticed it’s on Netflix or Prime. Can’t recall which. I have a date with that naughty and gorgeous Emily Blunt tonight. And you know, you just know, she and hubby John role play Mary Poppins as a domme. Ya just know it and I love her even more for it.

Edit Update: Me expects A Quiet Place 3.

They did a really good job. Explained some pre and post-QP 1. But questions have still not been answered, and they should have kept to the invisible Jaws formula. Regardless, still intense.

Last Night in Soho might be really, really good.

The previews do a good job making me want to see it.

I watched Suicide Squad on HBO Max. Some of it was amusing but the word I kept thinking was silly.

I also want to see the new Candyman when it comes out.

OooH, This one slipped under my Radar. Cheers for the heads up, Jeff.

Looks to have everything I could ever wish for in a film: Soho; Britain in the early sixties; horror; the malleability of time.

Just gutted I've got to wait until October!

I was on a real Soho kick last month after reading Colin Wilson's Adrift tin Soho, a book I returned to after forty-eight years. I enjoyed it the second time around far more than I did when I was eighteen, encouraged to re-read it because of the 2019 film.

The film version was perhaps a little artier than I would have liked, but if anyone wants to emerse themselves in the atmosphere of a fifties/early sixties Soho in preparation for Last Night in Soho, no harm will come of giving it a go. It is atmospheric, if nothing else.
