Becky of Team DC gives us her five movies she can’t wait for this Autumn/Winter:
Personally, my most anticipated top 5 films for this autumn are an eclectic bunch! There’s sci-fi, drama, comedy and a childhood favourite in the mix.
- Gone Girl, out in cinemas now. Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike star in Gillian Flynn’s adaptation of her novel. Directed by David Fincher (Fight Club, Social Network, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), this mystery drama resolves around a woman’s disappearance and the intense media speculation surrounding her husband when it comes to light that he may not be as innocent as first thought.
- Interstellar, out 4 November in the UK. Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain star in Christopher Nolan’s latest – the force behind Inception and the Dark Knight trilogy. The trailer isn’t the clearest as to what it’s all about the powers at IMDB have said “A group of explorers make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.” Christopher Nolan is one to watch and McConaughey is on fire following his Oscar win.
- Paddington, out 28 November in the UK. Ben Whishaw steps in as the voice of Paddington and is joined by Lord Grantham himself, Hugh Bonneville as Mr Brown. Having seen the trailer after over excited colleagues mentioned how good it is, I’m giddy about reuniting with this childhood favourite – yes, it’s the Peruvian bear that likes duffle coats and marmalade butties!
- This Is Where I Leave You, out 24 October in the UK. Jason Bateman and Tina Fey are joined with Jane Fonda in this comedy drama about a family reconnecting following the death of their father. Tina Fey and Jason Bateman never fail to make me laugh – should show some depth of character and drama from them both too.
- The Imitation Game, out 8 October at the London Film Festival and 14 November across the UK. Two words. Benedict and Cumberbatch!! The juggernaut of Cumberbatch’s career rolls into town again with this biography of Alan Turing, the creator of the Enigma code-cracking device in World War II.
