Three Thousand Years of Longing
George Miller’s Three Thousand Years of Longing is based on A. S. Byatt’s 1994 novel The Djinn in the Nightingale’s Eye and follows a scholar of myths and narratives named Dr. Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton), who for some reason releases a Djinn (Idris Elba) from a bottle he has been trapped in for the past century.
The Djinn, bound to Alithea until he granted three of her desires, shares tales of loss, longing, betrayal, and love from his three thousand years of imprisonment.
In his feature film directing debut, B.J. Novak plays a reporter from New York who travels to Texas to look into a mysterious disappearance, bringing the podcast mystery format to the big screen.
Starring Brian Brown-Easley, a Marine Corps veteran who threatens to blow up a Wells Fargo bank to get the money he is owed from Veterans Affairs, John Boyega stars in the thriller Breaking.
Based on an accurate tale, Breaking stars the late Michael K. Williams in one of his final roles as Eli Bernard, a police officer who feels terrible for Brown-Easley and tries hard to defuse the hostage situation.
The American version of Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala’s 2014 psychological horror thriller Goodnight Mommy, starring Naomi Watts, is set to be released in 2022. The film follows a pair of young boys as they begin to think that their mother is not who she claims to be when they arrive at her remote country home and find her face covered in bandages.
The protagonists of Drifting Home, the next anime feature film from director Hiroyasu Ishida (Penguin Highway), are childhood friends Kosuke and Natsume, who, revisiting their now-demolished apartment building, find themselves in a parallel universe encircled by a vast ocean. Together, the two must figure out how to return to their home world after getting lost in the odd one their buddies took them to.
Broad Peak is loosely based on the biography of famed Polish mountaineer Maciej Berbeka and tells the narrative of his attempt, some 25 years after his first failed expedition, to reach the summit of one of the most challenging mountains in the world.
It’s not the first time Channing Tatum has played a man obsessed with dogs, but what about a man who also owns a dog?
Tatum stars as a grieving Army Ranger who embarks on a long journey to transport his friend’s dog to the funeral; he also co-directed the film with Reid Carolin.
In this new version of the 1980s comedy series, Chevy Chase’s role has been taken over by Jon Hamm.
Peter Strickland, director of such classics as The Duke of Burgundy and In Fabric, is back with another intriguing drama, this time set in a culinary school. In addition to the usual excellent costuming and attention to detail from Strickland, the teaser also promises a “sensory overload” effect and the tense atmosphere that is characteristic of his films.
