Top 20 Movies to Look Out For In January (2018)

According to: Selina

20 – Inside (1/12)

Tag Line: Some women would kill for a baby.
Production Company: Inside Producción, Embankment Films, Grand Piano Productions, Natixis Coficiné, Crea SGR, Nostromo Pictures
Director: Miguel Angel Vivas
Writer: Jaume Balaguero, Alexandre Bustillo, Manu Diez, Julien Maury
Actors: Rachel Nichols, Laura Harring, Stany Coppet, Andrea Tivadar, David Chevers
Genre: Horror, Thriller
Rated: NR
Length: 100 minutes

IMDb Blurb: A woman in her third trimester of pregnancy is stalked by a stranger who is obsessed with her unborn child.

I’m not sure I’d call this film the most original thing I’ve ever seen, but it does look sufficiently harrowing. Of course, I’m a little bias at the moment. Pregnancy hormones are a bitch.

The thing is, January is when production companies put out films that they don’t have a huge amount of confidence in. December is the big month for snagging an audience. In January, no one’s really got money left over and they go back to work or school after breaks. That means, the pickings are often slim for the month.

As a result, Inside likely wouldn’t have made my list on any other month. It didn’t catch my attention so much as the thought of watching it didn’t repulse me. Quite a few of the films this month fit into that same category.

Now, that doesn’t mean any of them would definitely be bad or generic. Don’t put a huge amount of stock in what production companies think. Fox might not have put Deadpool (2016) out in January, but they were vocal about having no faith in it – and that movie was phenomenal.

19 – The Competition (1/26)

Tag Line: Play or be played.
Production Company: The Theory Inc., Ascension Media
Director: Harvey Lowry
Writer: Kelsey Tucker
Actors: Thora Birch, Claire Coffee, Chris Klein, David Blue, Jason Tobias, Tiffany Fallon, Gabrielle Stone, Harvey Lowry, Michael Draper, Tim Harrold, Kimberly Stanphill, Betsy Hume, Jasmine Fontes, Kelsey Tucker, Catherine B. Johnson, Henry Noble, Shelly Lipkin
Genre: Comedy, Romance
Rated: NR
Length: Unknown

IMDb Blurb: None

Is it just me or is Chris Klein (Just Friends, American Reunion, Authors Anonymous) somewhat type-cast? It’s like he never really left his American Pie (1999) days.

Still, this film doesn’t look awful. It’s not really all that unique, either, but it seems like it could be watchable at the very least. Likely not something I’d choose, but I wouldn’t be too upset if we rolled it. Who knows? It might even surprise me.

18 – Primal Rage (1/26)

Tag Line: The legend of Oh-Mah
Production Company: None listed
Director: Patrick Magee
Writer: Jay Lee, Patrick Magee
Actors: Casey Gagliardi, Andrew Joseph Montgomery, Eloy Casados, Justin Rain, Marshal Hilton, Shannon Malone, Jackey Neyman Jones, Jim Roof, Brandon Gibson
Genre: Horror
Rated: R
Length: Unknown

IMDb Blurb: A newly reunited young couple's drive through the Pacific Northwest turns into a nightmare as they are forced to face nature, unsavory locals, and a monstrous creature, known to the Native Americans as Oh-Mah.

Clearly, just by watching the trailer alone, you can see there are a lot of stereotypes in play for this creature feature horror. I mean, they even bothered to show us the creepy convenience store/gas station clerk warning the protagonists about the woods. What’s worse is that this film seems to be utilizing those tropes seriously instead of ironically.

Still, it’s been a while since I’ve seen a sasquatch-based horror film and this one seems to be higher quality than the majority of them. It could just be a bad trailer. That’s what I’m hoping for.

It was funded on Kickstarter, too. That makes me want to have faith in it.

17 – Swinging Safari (1/18)

Tag Line: Staying alive was harder than you think.
Production Company: Piccadilly Pictures, See Pictures, Wildheart Films
Director: Stephan Elliott
Writer: Stephan Elliott
Actors: Guy Pearce, Julian McMahon, Radha Mitchell, Kylie Minogue, Asher Keddie, Jack Thompson, Jacob Elordi, Alice Lanesbury, Oscar Bailey, Atticus Rob, Ava Taylor, James Calder, Jesse Denyer, Imogen Hess, Marcus Guinane, Renaud Jadin
Genre: Drama
Rated: NR
Length: Unknown

IMDb Blurb: A teenager comes of age in a small Australian town during the 1970s when a 200-ton blue whale gets washed up on a local beach.

This will be coming out in Australia, specifically.

I imagine there’s going to be a huge amount of cringe in this film that’s going to make me shy away from seeing it, but the raunchy humor is clearly there and there’s a decent cast backing it up. I can’t really hold the cringe factor against it, because that’s personal opinion. Tons of people love watching that kind of thing. I’m just super sensitive to it and wind up hiding in my shirt.

I’m just weird.

The tagline indicates that there might be more to this movie than meets the eye, as well. Especially when you take into account that IMDb doesn’t list it as a comedy. It may be misrepresented in the trailer. In fact, it almost definitely is – considering the blurb mentions a whale that doesn’t even make an appearance in the video I just saw.

16 – Insidious: The Last Key (1/5)

Tag Line: Fear comes home
Production Company: Blumhouse Productions, Entertainment One, LStar Capital, Stage 6 Films
Director: Adam Robitel
Writer: Leigh Whannell
Actors: Lin Shaye, Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson, Kirk Acevedo, Caitlin Gerard, Spencer Locke, Josh Stewart, Tessa Ferrer, Aleque Reid, Ava Kolker, Pierce Pope, Bruce Davidson
Genre: Horror, Mystery, Thriller
Rated: PG-13
Length: 103 minutes

IMDb Blurb: Parapsychologist Dr. Elise Rainier faces her most fearsome and personal haunting yet - in her own family home.

I’m so done with the Insidious series that it’s not even funny. However, I have decided to reluctantly admit that this one doesn’t look bad. At the very least it doesn’t look like a repeat of all the others.

I still hope it’s the last one.

15 – Death Race 4: Beyond Anarchy (1/30)

Tag Line: None
Production Company: Universal 1440 Entertainment, UFO International Productions, Capital Arts Entertainment
Director: Don Michael Paul
Writer: Paul W. S. Anderson, Tony Giglio, Don Michael Paul
Actors: Zach McGowan, Frederick Koehler, Christine Marzano, Yennis Cheung, Cassie Clare, Lucy Aarden, Danny Trejo, Danny Glover, Nicholas Aaron, Cameron Jack, Lorina Kamburova, Diana Dimitrova, Valislav Pavlov, Lee Shone, Natalie Ann Parry
Genre: Action
Rated: R
Length: Unknown

IMDb Blurb: None

This film is going straight to DVD, which makes sense for something in this kind of series that’s going into the fourth film and has more of a cult following than a mainstream one.

It’s very easy to write this film off as typical sequel fodder. Until you watch the trailer and realize there’s actually a really decent, strong, cast behind it.

Sure, it’s Mad Max lite, but I’m still really interested in seeing people like Danny Glover (Day of the Mummy, Legendary, Lethal Weapon 4) and Danny Trejo (Bad Ass, Machete, Shoot the Hero) pull Death Race 4 out of the ‘typical’ pile and put it into one that’s more for films worth watching.

Don’t write this movie off just yet.

14 – A Tale of Two Coreys (1/6)

Tag Line: None
Production Company: Hybrid, Philco, Mayor Entertainment, Brain Before Brian Productions
Director: Steven Huffaker
Writer: Tejal Desai, Jessica Dube, Corey Feldman, Jeffrey Schenck, Peter Sullivan, Hanz Wasserburger
Actors: Elijah Marcano, Justin Ellings, Scott Bosely, Casey Leach, Ashley Scott, Patrick Muldoon, Paula Lindberg, Brian Huskey, Aleksandra Jade, Brandon Howard, Keith Coogan, Jacob Loeb, Bella Popa, Michael Carbonaro, John Ennis, Richard Tanner, Jennifer Peo, Claude Knowlton, Brian Nolan, Jono Cota, Jay Disney, John Colton
Genre: Drama
Rated: NR
Length: Unknown

IMDb Blurb: The story of teen heartthrobs Corey Feldman and Corey Haim, whose lives were forever changed by the glitz, glamour, and the darker side of show business.

With everything going on in Hollywood today, I think it’s more important than ever to explore what happened with the Coreys when they were young actors.

Hollywood likes to think it’s above the law. It’s not. Furthermore, no entertainment is so important that it excuses the abuse of a child – for any reason. What happened in the lives of Corey Feldman and Corey Haim is inexcusable, and it’s about time people paid attention.

13 – Day of the Dead: Bloodline (1/5)

Tag Line: Join the undying war.
Production Company: Campbell Grobman Films, Nu Boyana Film Studios
Director: Hector Hernandez Vicens
Writer: Mark Tonderai, Lars Jacobson, George A. Romero
Actors: Sophie Skelton, Johnathon Schaech, Jeff Gum, Marcus Vanco, Mark Rhino Smith, Lillian Blankenship, Shari Watson, Rachel O’Meara, Luke Cousins, Lorina Kamburova, Cristina Serafini, Debbie Sherman, Nathan Cooper, Teodora Duhovnikova, Ulyana Chan, Bashar Rahal
Genre: Horror
Rated: R
Length: Unknown

IMDb Blurb: A small group of military personnel and survivalists dwell in an underground bunker as they seek to find a cure in a world overrun by zombies.

Oh, this film scares me. Not in the typical zombie/horror way, either.

For those of you who don’t know, the brilliant George Romero (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Land of Dead), the grandfather of zombie lore and the original creator of Day of the Dead, died this past July.

Now, it’s very possible that this film is coming out now as a way to honor the memory of Romero… but it could also wind up dishonoring his memory. Bloodline is not a sequel, it’s a reimagining that is coming out less than a year after Romero’s death.

I want to believe this film will take into account how loyal Romero’s fans are and not screw things up… but a reimagining so soon… it makes me nervous.

I’m still willing to give it a chance.

12 – Devil’s Gate (1/5)

Tag Line: Pray they are never found.
Production Company: Caramel Film, Mednick Productions
Director: Clay Staub
Writer: Peter Aperlo, Clay Staub
Actors: Milo Ventimiglia, Bridget Regan, Amanda Schull, Shawn Ashmore, Jonathan Frakes, Javier Botet, Adam Hurtig, Spencer Drever, Scott Johnson, Will Woytowich, Jan Skene, Sarah Constible, Beverly Ndukwu, Jean-Francois Ferland
Genre: Horror, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Rated: NR
Length: 94 minutes

IMDb Blurb: Set in the small town of Devil's Gate, North Dakota, the film examines the disappearance of a local woman (Regan) and her young son. Schull plays an FBI agent who helps the local sheriff (Frakes) search for answers. Partnering with a deputy (Ashmore), they track down the missing woman's husband (Ventimiglia) and find that nothing is as it seems.

On first look, Devil’s Gate looks like a typical supernatural cop thriller, but there’s more beneath the surface.

First of all, I have no fucking clue what this trailer is telling me. It may not be supernatural at all – that hand that reaches out at one point looks very alien in nature. Does that necessarily mean it’s an alien film? No. I mean, the title indicates there’s a hellish factor, since devils are mentioned. If it is hellish, though, I expect something really interesting in design according to what that hand looked like.

Second of all, the cast is nothing to sneeze at. There are a couple of relatively big names that don’t tend to take on typical projects. Although they might not always find the best of them, they’re rarely typical. They like to go out on a limb.

Finally, I’m very curious about Peter Aperlo (300: March to Glory, Watchmen: The End is Nigh, Legend fo the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole). He’s one of the writers working on Devil’s Gate, but he’s mostly familiar with writing for video games. That’s something that intrigues me. I want to see how his experience in the gaming world translates to the film world – especially with the kind of acting back-up he’ll have in this project.

11 – Saturday Church (1/12)

Tag Line: None
Production Company: Spring Pictures, Round Films
Director: Damon Cardasis
Writer: Damon Cardasis
Actors: Margot Bingham, Regina Taylor, Evander Duck Jr., Marquis Rodriguez, Peter Y. Kim, Jaylin Fletcher, Luka Kain, Mj Rodriguez, Jose Baez, Stephen Conrad Moore, Kate Bornstein, Indya Moore, Jarrett Austin Brown, Alexia Garcia
Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Musical
Rated: NR
Length: 90 minutes

IMDb Blurb: A 14 year-old-boy, struggling with gender identity and religion, begins to use fantasy to escape his life in the inner city and find his passion in the process.

This musical is very politically relevant at the moment, with light being shined on the transgendered community, awareness, and acceptance.

I believe a film on this subject that allows people to see the life of a child coming to terms with their own identity in the safety of a musical, might be exactly what the world needs right now. That musical component allows people who may not be as tolerant, or who may not understand transgendered youth very well, to see the honesty in the story through a gentler lens… even if the story is harsh.

Sometimes, the answer is to hold someone’s hand as they walk a path to understanding, instead of throwing them in head first.

10 – Stratton (1/5)

Tag Line: The enemy has a weapon. So do we.
Production Company: Atomic Arts, GFM films, SquareOne Entertainment, Stratton Film Productions, Twickenham Studios
Director: Simon West
Writer: Duncan Falconer, Warren Davis II
Actors: Dominic Cooper, Austin Stowell, Gemma Chan, Connie Nielsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Tom Felton, Jake Fairbrother, Tyler Hoechlin, Derek Jacobi, Lizzie Winkler, Rinat Khismatouline, Igal Naor, Olegar Fedoro
Genre: Action, Thriller
Rated: R
Length: 95 minutes

IMDb Blurb: A British Special Boat Service commando tracks down an international terrorist cell.

Really, Stratton just looks like a good, solid action film with a decent cast.

It’s very possible that the film might spiral off into trope-town… but I’m hoping there’s more to it. I really want to believe in Stratton.

9 – Proud Mary (1/12)

Tag Line: Execute with style.
Production Company: Screen Gems
Director: Babak Najafi
Writer: Steve Antin, John Stuart Newman, Christian Swegal
Actors: Taraji P. Henson, Neal McDonough, Danny Glover, Xander Berkeley, Billy Brown, Margaret Avery, Jahi Di’Allo Winston, Owen Burke, Jose Guns Alves, Adrian M. Mompoint, Alex Portenko, Bo Cleary, Al’Jaleel McGhee, Shawn Doherty, Roger Dillingham Jr.
Genre: Action, Thriller
Rated: NR
Length: Unknown

IMDb Blurb: Taraji P. Henson is Mary, a hitwoman working for an organized crime family in Boston. Mary's life is completely turned around when she meets a young boy whose path she crosses when a professional hit goes awry.

This film just looks like a fun way to see some great actors be badasses. I’m absolutely ready to see Taraji P. Henson (Empire, Hidden Figures, Top Five) act as an assassin.

Proud Mary has a very 70s quality to it and that makes me curious about where the plot is going to go. In my experience, 70s films were pretty fucked up – many of them in the best way. At the very least, some of the craziest movies I’ve seen were made in that decade.

Needless to say, I expect a lot from this film, as well as the cast.

8 – The Leisure Seeker (1/19)

Tag Line: None
Production Company: Indiana Production Company, Bac Films, Rai Cinema, Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali (MiBAC)
Director: Paolo Virzi
Writer: Michael Zadoorian, Stephen Amidon, Francesca Archibugi, Francesco Piccolo, Paolo Virzì
Actors: Donald Sutherland, Helen Mirren, Kirsty Mitchell, Janel Moloney, Joshua Mikel, Chelle Ramos, Christian McKay, Elijah Marcano, Robert Pralgo, Dick Gregory, Matt Mercurio, Marc Fajardo, Mylie Stone
Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Drama
Rated: R
Length: 112 minutes

IMDb Blurb: A runaway couple go on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call The Leisure Seeker.

Donald Sutherland (The Hunger Games, Crossing Lines, The Mechanic) is one of my favorite actors of all time. Possibly in my top ten, though people likely wouldn’t guess it. I’ve never seen him act poorly in anything he’s ever been in, though. He always throws himself into every part he takes.

In this case, I can’t imagine how difficult it much have been for him to throw himself into the part of an Alzheimer’s victim. It had to have been heartbreaking…

And I will be disappointed if watching his performance is anything less than life changing.

7 – 12 Strong (1/19)

Tag Line: The Declassified True Story of the Horse Soldiers
Production Company: Alcon Entertainment, Black Label Media, Jerry Bruckheimer Films, Lionsgate
Director: Nicolai Fuglsig
Writer: Ted Tally, Peter Craig, Doug Stanton
Actors: Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon, William Fichtner, Elsa Pataky, Taylor Sheridan, Michael Pena, Rob Riggle, Ben O’Toole, Marie Wagenman, Seth Adkins, Peter Malek, Kenneth Miller
Genre: Action, Drama, History
Rated: R
Length: Unknown

IMDb Blurb: 12 Strong tells the story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11; under the leadership of a new captain, the team must work with an Afghan warlord to take down the Taliban.

There’s no way this film wouldn’t look good, I think. Chris Hemsworth (Thor: Ragnarok, Blackhat, Rush) in a war film based loosely on reality just sounded like an awesome movie, even before I saw the trailer or who else was involved.

When you add the trailer and the rest of the cast to the equation, 12 Strong seems like it can’t miss.

6 – Molly’s Game (1/5)

Tag Line: Deal with her.
Production Company: STX Entertainment, Huayi Brothers Pictures, The Mark Gordon Company, Pascal Pictures, Entertainment One
Director: Aaron Sorkin
Writer: Molly Bloom, Aaron Sorkin
Actors: Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Jeremy Strong, Chris O’Dowd, J. C. MacKenzie, Brian d’Arcy James, Bill Camp, Graham Greene, Justin Kirk, Angela Gots, Natalie Krill, Stephanie Herfield, Madison McKinley, Piper Howell
Genre: Biography, Drama
Rated: R
Length: 140 minutes

IMDb Blurb: The true story of Molly Bloom, an Olympic-class skier who ran the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker game and became an FBI target.

Every time I saw this trailer, I liked it a little more. It crept up my top 20 list very quietly, until it plateaued here.

It does fall in that biographical film dead horse category that Hollywood has been beating… but it still looks good to me. There’s strong women, action, intrigue… I have some difficult looking passed Molly’s Game without giving it credit.

I am a little concerned about the run time, which is why this film couldn’t climb higher on the list than this. Two and a half hours for a biographical film about someone relatively unknown is a little much. There’s some significant risk of the story getting boring.

5 – Paddington 2 (1/12)

Tag Line: Magic. Mystery. Marmalade.
Production Company: StudioCanal, Anton Capital Entertainment (ACE), Amazon Prime Instant Video, Canal+, Ciné+, Heyday Films, Marmalade Films Ltd.
Director: Paul King
Writer: Paul King, Simon Farnaby, Michael Bond
Actors: Michael Gambon, Imelda Staunton, Ben Whishaw, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Sally Hawkins, Hugh Bonneville, Julie Walters, Marie-France Alvarez, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Ben Miller, Jessica Hynes, Robbie Gee, Jim Broadbent, Enzo Squillino Jr., Tom Conti, Louis Partridge, Hugh Grant, Peter Capaldi, Tom Davis, Noah Taylor, Aaron Neil, Brendan Gleeson
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Rated: PG
Length: 103 minutes

IMDb Blurb: Paddington, now happily settled with the Brown family and a popular member of the local community, picks up a series of odd jobs to buy the perfect present for his Aunt Lucy's 100th birthday, only for the gift to be stolen.

I never got around to seeing the first Paddington (2014), but I was only a little interested anyway. This sequel actually speaks to me more than the original did. I just think this film looks better.

Of course, I’m aware that there could be all manner of sequelitis at work here that makes it suck horribly… but I don’t think that’ll be the case. I have faith in Paddington 2 – and I might just watch the first one in order to prepare myself for it.

4 – The Commuter (1/12)

Tag Line: Lives are on the line.
Production Company: Ombra Films, StudioCanal, The Picture Company
Director: Jaume Collet-Serra
Writer: Byron Willinger, Philip de Blasi, Ryan Engle
Actors: Liam Neeson, Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Jonathan Banks, Sam Neill, Elizabeth McGovern, Killian Scott, Shazad Latif, Andy Nyman, Clara Lago, Roland Moller, Florence Pugh, Dean-Charles Chapman, Ella-Rae Smith, Nila Aalia, Colin McFarlane, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith
Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery
Rated: PG-13
Length: 104 minutes

IMDb Blurb: A businessman is caught up in a criminal conspiracy during his daily commute home.

Liam Neeson (A Monster Calls, Silence, A Christmas Star) is always a good reason to want to see a film. In this case, I find the plot of The Commuter to be interesting as well – if not entirely original.

It actually reminds me quite a bit of Eagle Eye (2008), a movie I relatively enjoyed. The only thing that makes this one stand out against the other is that the cast is better. Hopefully, the story deviates enough to make a difference. I may have liked Eagle Eye, but I don’t need another film exactly like it.

3 – The Post (1/12)

Tag Line: None
Production Company: Amblin Entertainment, DreamWorks, Participant Media, Pascal Pictures, Star Thrower Entertainment
Director: Steven Spielberg
Writer: Liz Hannah, Josh Singer
Actors: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Sarah Paulson, Bob Odenkirk, Tracy Letts, Bradley Whitford, Bruce Greenwood, Matthew Rhys, Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, Jesse Plemons, David Cross, Zach Woods, pat healy, John Rue, Rick Holmes, Philip Casnoff, Jessie Mueller, Stark Sands, Michael Cyril Creighton, Will Denton
Genre: Biography, Drama, History
Rated: PG-13
Length: 115 minutes

IMDb Blurb: A cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents pushed the country's first female newspaper publisher and a hard-driving editor to join an unprecedented battle between journalist and government.

I love films that advocate standing up for what’s right at all costs, especially when ‘what’s right’ is specifically centered around the truth.

Transparency is a huge factor in government and, without it, politicians cannot be held accountable because no one knows what they’re really doing. This film touches on that idea, while looking into the true story of a badass woman standing her ground when people thought she couldn’t.

All of this is a part of The Post, along with a ridiculously talented cast and crew that includes Steven Spielberg (Saving Private Ryan, War Horse, The BFG), Meryl Streep (Into the Woods, The Giver, The Iron Lady), Tom Hanks (Inferno, Sully, Ithaca), and Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story, Blue Jay, The Runner). I really don’t see how this film can go wrong.

2 – Please Stand By (1/26)

Tag Line: You can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.
Production Company: Allegiance Theater, 2929 Productions
Director: Ben Lewin
Writer: Michael Golamco
Actors: Dakota Fanning, Toni Collette, Alice Eve, River Alexander, Marla Gibbs, Jessica Rothe, Michael Stahl-David, Patton Oswalt
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Rated: PG-13
Length: 93 minutes

IMDb Blurb: A young autistic woman runs away from her caregiver in an attempt to submit her manuscript to a "Star Trek" writing competition.

There’s something completely endearing about this film – and not just because I consider myself a Trekkie.

Dakota Fanning’s (The Last of Robin Hood, Effie Gray, Very Good Girls) part looks incredibly in depth and I can’t wait to see how she works with Patton Oswalt (BoJack Horseman, Veep, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).

I’m hoping that Please Stand By goes down a more heartwarming path, but I like that there are numerous possible outcomes to this plot. That means you can’t really know where the film is going to end up while you’re watching it.

1 – Maze Runner: The Death Cure (1/26)

Tag Line: The time of reckoning has come.
Production Company: Gotham Group, Temple Hill Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox
Director: Wes Ball
Writer: T. S. Nowlin, James Dashner
Actors: Rosa Salazar, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Walton Goggins, Katherine McNamara, Aidan Gillen, Nathalie Emmanuel, Patricia Clarkson, Giancarlo Esposito, Barry Pepper, Ki Hong Lee, Jacob Lofland, Paul Lazenby
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Rated: NR
Length: Unknown

IMDb Blurb: Young hero Thomas embarks on a mission to find a cure for a deadly disease known as the "Flare".

I have been waiting for this film for so damn long.

As a fan of the books, I don’t actually like the Maze Runner films. Everything is off and wrong and makes me cringe on an Eragon (2006) level. Still, I’ve been dying to see how they wrap it up – since it almost seems to follow a different storyline altogether.

With everything Dylan O’Brien (Teen Wolf, American Assassin, The Internship) went through to get this film recorded, I really hope it’s as good as it could be. (Provided you ignore the book series)
