On Friday, June 8th we have…
- Ocean’s Eight
- Hotel Artemis
Definitely the biggest movie of the weekend will be Ocean’s Eight, as it has been heavily marketed, highly anticipated, and overly star-studded. With A-List stars such as Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett, this movie will do some big numbers at the box office.
But one film that I am expecting to be an unexpected hit is the horror film, Hereditary. Seeing for the first time, yesterday, I believe this will gain plenty of attention not just from the general public but, from people of importance in the film world.
Hotel Artemis, starring Jodie Foster, Charlie Day and Sterling K. Brown, is an interesting one. I was slightly confused on what the plot was from the trailer so, based on that, it may or may not pull people to see this movie.
Ocean’s Eight has been extremely anticipated for the last several months as it has a phenomenal cast of women to tell the story. Some of the women include Cate Blanchett, Dakota Fanning, Rihanna, Sandra Bullock, Mindy Kaling, Helena Bonham Carter to name a few. To say I am excited for this film would be an understatement. I only hope that the film surpasses expectations.
Another film premiering this weekend that I am excited for is Hotel Artemis. I may be a little bias as I very much appreciate Sterling K. Brown on screen anytime. It will be interesting to see Brown as a character other than Randall Pearson from This Is Us. Although it is not a highly anticipated film, it still has potential.
As a family film, I think Zoo could be an unexpected breath of fresh air as it chronicles a young boy and his friends in their attempt to save a baby elephant. While I may not see it, it has a lovable plot that younger kids may appreciate.
