Toy Story 4 – You can’t go wrong with new Disney/Pixar films, especially with the Pixar O.G., and one of the most consistent animated series’ ever; Toy Story. Toy Story 3 is going to be a tough film to follow, but the whole gang is back for one more ride this June.
Lucy in the Sky – Natalie Portman stars in a loosely based telling of the turbulent exploits of astronaut Lisa Nowak as she tries to ground herself in a love triangle that spirals into chaos. This is the first film from Noah Hawley, the visionary behind the FX series Legion.
Aladdin – There have been a lot of negative reactions to teasers for Disney’s live-action Aladdin remake, especially aimed at a somewhat lo-fi production style and Will Smith’s take on the Genie character made famous by Robin Williams. But here, in the first full trailer for the film, Aladdin presents as a much better-looking film than initially predicted. Will it be? We’ll see this May.
