The 3 movies we’re most excited about this year!

Ocean’s 8

Released in June this year, the new Ocean’s 8 movie plot features Danny Ocean’s (George Clooney’s character) sister (aka Sandra Bullock) planning a heist to steal a necklace from a celebrity (Anne Hathaway) at the yearly Met Gala.

The movie features a seriously star studded cast – Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter… the list is endless! With a New York city backdrop and an all female crew, the movie looks set to return to the roots of the franchise (and we loved Ocean’s 11 so here’s hoping it’s as good!).

 

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

We are happy to admit that Mamma Mia is one of our all time favourite feel good movies. Great cast, fab songs, beautiful scenery and tons of fun – what more could you want in a movie?! While sequels can be disappointing, we have high hopes for this one – the original cast are back (plus a few fantastic additions including Cher and Andy Garcia) and the trailer looks to be just as filled with fun and laughter as the first movie.

The plot centres on Sophie (Donna’s daughter) being pregnant and learning more about her mother’s past – but hey, let’s be honest. we’re less concerned about the storyline and more about the music!

Mary Poppins Returns

Here at GTTG, we are big fans of Emily Blunt – her turns in ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ and ‘The Girl on the Train’ are particular standouts – and so we’re extra excited about her playing Mary Poppins!

An unbelievable 54 years after the original, this sequel to ‘Mary Poppins’ is much anticipated – the teaser trailer (below) released last month gives little away but definitely whets our appetite for what’s to come! Released at Christmas, this movie will be one to watch with the whole family!
