2016 looks to be a great year for cinema and we hope to bring you some really great films!
Our top 10 films that we hope to get in 2016:
- Carol – Now playing! The latest from Director Todd Haynes (I’m Not There, Safe), it’s gotten great reviews ( “4 stars” – Washington Post, 94% – com) and stars one of the OGT’s favorite actors, Cate Blanchett. Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l265M1g5zw0.
- The Founder – With Michael Keaton as the legendary McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc, this film has the potential to be the next great biopic, in the vein of The Imitation Game. They even have the same distributor, The Weinstein Company!
- Everybody Wants Some –Richard Linklater (Boyhood, Slackers) returns with what looks like an incredibly fun film and pretty similar to his Dazed and Confused. Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6raUs0CiCQ.
- Anomalisa – Co-directed by Duke Johnson (Community’s stop motion Christmas episode) and the amazing Charlie Kauffman (Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich) this film is incredibly well reviewed (94% com, 92% Metacritic.com) and we hope to bring it to you early this year.
- Silence – This one doesn’t have a specific release date, but is directed by Martin Scorcese(!) and stars Liam Neeson and Andrew Garfield. With that kind of production and cast, this looks like it will be an incredible film.
- Mustang – This tale of Turkish sisters was recently shortlisted for a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film and has been compared to Sofia Coppola’s The Virgin Suicides.Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rU9JAN8LtIk
- Zoolander 2 – Just wanted to see if you were paying attention!
- La La Land – Damien Chazzelle follows up the incredible Whiplash with this musical-comedy(?) starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. Although there’s no trailer yet, we’re very excited for it!
- Captain Fantastic –Currently doesn’t have a trailer since it premieres at the Sundance Film Festival, but this film stars Viggo Mortensen as the dad of some very cool and apocalypse-ready kids.
- The Lobster – This film looks super interestingly weird, is directed by the great Yorgos Lanthimos, and continues Colin Farrell’s career turn from A-list actor to arthouse favorite.
- Chimes at Midnight – A bonus! Orson Welles’ last completed fiction feature, it was savagely reviewed by critics when released in 1966, but is now regarded as a masterpiece. With a restoration by the Criterion Collection, we really hope that we can bring this to you in 2016.
