“Black Panther” is one of the many superhero movies from Marvel. What makes this movie different, is the mainly black cast. The story is set in ‘Wakanda’, King T’Challa’s home. In the movie “Captain America: Civil War”, we see T’Challa for the first time. In that movie, he’s just getting familiar with his ‘Black Panther identity’. Now, T’Challa has return home to Wakanda. As it turns out, he isn’t safe in his hometown, because two of his enemies are trying to take down the kingdom. He has to fight as the Black Panther to prevent a civil war.
Release date in the Netherlands: 1 June 2018
Genre: Action comedy
“Deadpool” is also based on the Marvel Comics. In the first movie, we can see how Deadpool acts more like a funny villain than a superhero. Despites his actions, Deadpool has a good heart and is most of all hilarious. The second movie promises therefore to be just as good for your funny bone.
Release date in the Netherlands: 14 June 2018
“Love, Simon” promises to be a good and teachable movie. The main character, Simon, is secretly gay and in love. The problem is, he doesn’t know who he’s in love with, since it’s an anonymous internet crush. An even bigger problem is that the letters he sent to his secret pen pal, have fallen into the wrong hands. He’s blackmailed into being someone’s wingman to prevent his secret coming out.
The Incredibles 2
Release date in the Netherlands: 15 June 2018
This one is for the nostalgic people amongst us. Fourteen (!) years ago, most of the current students begged their parents to take them to the cinema to see “The Incredibles”. An incredibly funny and good movie. Now, the time of the second Incredibles movie has come. The starring superhero family exists of the extremely strong Mr. Incredible, his wife Elastigirl and their three kids who are also blessed with strange superhero powers. After battling a villain in the first movie, the family tries to balance their normal suburban lives with their superhero lives. But when another villain rises, they have to fully commit to save their selves and the world. Make sure you don’t miss this!
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
Release date in the Netherlands: 16 November 2018
As a big Harry Potter fan, I strongly feel this blog wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t discuss this movie. “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second Fantastic Beasts movie. If you haven’t seen the first one, I suggest you plan a movie night with your friends, right now! It’s definitely worth watching. In the first Fantastic Beasts movie, we see Newt Scamander chasing all the magical creatures that escaped his even more magical suitcase. In “The Crimes of Grindelwald” Newt and our old friend Albus Dumbledore try their best to keep the dark wizard Grindelwald from getting followers.
