FILMS

Ready Player One: The game begins

  • Directed by Steven Spielberg

In 2011, a novel was published that combined topics such as video games, cinema, books and popular culture. Its author was Ernest Cline, who debuted with a science fiction story in the world of letters. Now the world he created and built in 2044 is moving to the cinema around a young man who keeps himself away from his crumbling reality by entering a virtual game. Wade Watts is a boy who is looking for the keys that the founder of OASIS – this programmed universe – left behind after his death. Whoever finds the three “Easter eggs” inherits his fortune. With its references from the eighties, it will be a delight for lovers of the genre and dystopias.

Solo: a Star Wars story

After the controversy of Star Wars: The Last JediDisney, which was really hit by fans of the George Lucas saga, has little hope that this will be a success. However, the history of Han Solo will enable us to know how this smuggler came about and who was his mentor within the profession. His crossings and failures will surely be explored, just as history prompted him to become an important part of the resistance, a born leader and one of the most popular characters in the saga.

Mamma mía: Now it starts again

Since Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is pregnant, she sets out to investigate what her mother Donna’s past was (she was originally played by Meryl Streep, although in this sequel it is Lily James who gives her life as a young man). Abbas music is the guide to introduce us to how the James character dealt with the news that she would become a mother and how she brought her daughter forward without her father’s support. It is a musical, yes, but also a story of tenacity and effort in which Cher will appear.

Operation Red Sparrow

  • Directed by Francis Lawrence

Another adaptation, only from the novel by Jason Matthews. It is a thriller starring Jennifer Lawrence in which she plays a girl who was recruited from a school that is actually a Russian secret service, where she is taught to manipulate her body and use it as a weapon.

It is the twelfth expedition to a closed area in which the overflowing nature prevents compliance with the laws of physics. Those who enter this area are never the same again.

God particle

J.J. Abrams produces the sequel to Cloverfield the monster, just like in the first installment. In this film, problems escalate into space, where a failed scientific experiment results in the residents of a space station being isolated and struggling to survive. The disasters that occur here are all that we would not like to have in an entrepreneurial project. To bring it to life – or death – Elizabeth Debicki, Daniel Brühl and Gugu Mbatha-Raw join this combination of horror, mystery and science fiction.

Avenger: Infinity War

  • Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo

After the trailer left the internet shortly before the collapse and became the most viewed in history, the planet is waiting for the largest superhero union ever seen in the film. Avengers, Black Panthers and even Guardians of the Galaxy will team up to fight Thanos and prevent him from taking over the infinite gems. This will be the first of two installments that define what will happen to Marvel from here to the real one. Fight, sacrifice, loss, and the search for solid leadership, as well as multi-star occupation, are hopes to prevent the destruction of the universe.

  • Directed by Dexter Fletcher

After Bryan Singer left the lead due to misconduct, Dexter Fletcher took on the project that will tell us the story of Freddie Mercury and Queen, especially the events that led them to appear at the Live Aid concert in 1985.

Scar face

  • Director: Not yet confirmed

Diego Luna will print his stamp on a character that was previously played by Oscar winner Paul Muni in 1932 and Al Pacino in 1983.
