Considering the state of the year thus far, the news of good entertainment has truly been one of the only positive things keeping us moving through a sea of, well, garbage juice. We are so excited by these productions, that we routinely cover them when trailers and announcements drop, for our benefit and yours.
In case you haven't been following along as closely as we have, we've compiled a rundown of all the films coming to screens this year that we are most excited about.
Sofia Coppola, Bill Murray and Rashida Jones team up to tell a heartwarming and hilarious story about a woman who enlists the help of her playboy father to find out if he's cheating on her. A lighthearted and wholesome comedy about the dynamics of relationships, New York, generational gaps, and reconciliation. Due to release in October.
Two days away from release on HBO Max, 'Unpregnant' follows a teenager who falls pregnant while living with conservative parents in one of America's strictest abortion regulated states. Starring Barbie Ferreira and Hayley Lu Richardson, the film follows a classic chick-flick narrative of reconciliation between two high-school best friends as they embark on a cross-country road trip, but with an aptly 2020 twist, serving as a fundamental commentary on access to choice-affirming healthcare in the US.
Are we creeped the hell out? yes. Will we watch it anyway because of its all-star cast and heavy involvement of Robert Pattinson playing an unhinged priest? also yes. Airing on Netflix September 16, the film follows the story of a horrific husband and wife serial killer duo, a disgruntled veteran, and our boy R-Patz.
Technically already out (it was released September 1), detailing Williams’ final days, and recounting his recently discovered battle with Lewy Body Dementia, a debilitating neurological disease.
Coming to Netflix October 21 and starring Call Me By Your Name's Armie Hammer, a whirlwind romance in Monte Carlo and a quick wedding finds the new Mrs de Winter arriving at her husband's family home. Her husband, Maxim de Winter lives at Manderley, an estate on the English coast. But Maxim is a widower and the new Mrs de Winter finds herself battling through the memory of Maxim's first wife, Rebecca. Oddly, Rebecca's legacy is kept alive by Manderley's housekeeper by the seemingly sinister, Mrs. Danvers.
No trailer just yet, Aya to Majo tells the story of Aya, an orphan who is adopted by a witch and taken to her new house to discover it's filled with magic. Essentially, an all-round sweet and wholesome time, perfect watching for rainy or sick days. Created by master Hayao Miyazaki himself alongside his son, Goro Miyazaki, the film is set to release later this year.
