The Incredibles 2
The Incredibles is one of Pixar’s most beloved films – which, considering that nearly every one of their animations is beloved is really saying something – and certainly the one that always seemed most ripe for a sequel. This time the Parr family, each member gifted with powers, spring back into action to take on villains the Underminer (glimpsed at the end of the first film) and new threat The Screen-slaver. Or at least matriarch Elasti-girl (Holly Hunter) gets to.
Superheroes are still looked upon unfavourably in the world of The Incredibles 2, but Elasti-girl is recruited to be the face of masked vigilantism by a PR consultant looking to make people with superpowers more palatable to the public. Her husband, Mr Incredible, becomes a stay-at-home dad and all manner of domestic comedy high jinks ensue.
Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom
People never get enough of dinosaurs, it seems: Jurassic World, the fourth instalment in the reptilian saga, is the fifth highest grossing film of all time worldwide.
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are back, this time teaming up to rescue some dinosaurs from what was formerly the Jurassic World theme park from an imminent volcano eruption. But a bigger threat awaits them when they get back to civilisation: greedy forces want to capture, weaponise and sell the dinosaurs, presumably to turn them into a military force. Which, yes, means that like The Lost World: Jurassic Park before it, giant lizards will run amok in ordinary cities and neighbourhoods: one particularly creepy image from the trailer shows a dinosaur’s claw reaching toward a sleeping child in their bedroom.
A Kid Like Jake
Films about the difficulties of parenting are nothing new, but A Kid Like Jake explores a topic that's been sorely underrepresented to date:what it means to be the parent of a non-binary child. Based on screenwriter Daniel Pearle's 2013 play of the same name, A Kid Like Jake looks at a mother and a father (played by Claire Danes and Jim Parsons) whose four-year-old son is about to enter pre-school. But Jake prefers Disney princesses to action figures and doesn't identify with what is considered traditionally male. Marital strain ensues as Danes and Parsons struggle with how best to respond to their child's needs. A Kid Like Jake premiered to raves at the Sundance Film Festival in January with New York Magazine’s Emily Yoshida saying,"Claire Danes and Jim Parsons are stunningly good" and Indiewire's David Ehrlich saying that it is "a sensitive and nuanced portrait of modern parenting."
Anne Hathaway plays a celebutante planning to wear $150m in jewels to the Met Gala. She might as well wear a target on her back, as all the hype around her gaudy ensemble inspires a crew of female thieves led by Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock), who's the sister of Danny Ocean (played by George Clooney in Steven Soderbergh's previous Ocean's films), to relieve her of them. Ocean assembles a crack team of Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Awkwafina, and Sarah Paulson to pull off the heist, which, given its setting will feature many fashion world cameos including Anna Wintour and Alexander Wang.
Leave No Trace
Winter’s Bone, a tale of poverty and endurance in the Ozarks, was one of the most acclaimed films of 2010. It also catapulted Jennifer Lawrence to stardom. Remarkably, though, its director, Debra Granik, hasn’t made a feature film until now. Her Leave No Trace explores similar territory, with a father and daughter defying convention by living out in the woods of Oregon. The dad (Ben Foster) wants to raise his daughter (Thomasin McKenzie) away from the corrupting influence of contemporary society – but they run afoul of US authorities, who object to them camping out on public land, demand McKenzie attend school and believe her father is incapable of raising her.
The Happy Prince
The last years of Oscar Wilde’s life were tragic ones, and utterly at odds with the witty plays and short stories he had previously written. Outed as homosexual at a time when being gay was a dire crime in the UK, he was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment, after which he fled the country for France, where his life ended in poverty. Rupert Everett plays Wilde in this look at his sad final years – he also got behind the camera to direct.
