"Celeste" (mentioned in last thread) is available on YouTube and Google Play... hopefully some other services pick it up, because I don't like Google having all my info ;)

Rambo: Last Blood (September 20th, 2019)

Could be good! I liked the 2008 update, so I'm on board for this one :p

Top Gun 2 (Summer 2020)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVRHG6z7sN8
Looks good so far! :D
From the visuals, it looks like they actually filmed inside jets instead of doing CGI.

Woohoo! It's been a dry spell for horror, but Sam Raimi produced an R-rated remake of "Ju-On" ("The Grudge") that will be out this weekend (January 3rd, 2020):

Aside from Raimi producing, other perks include that the new-ish director, Nicolas Pesce, also wrote and directed two other solid-looking horrors (writer-directors ftw!), and this re-make stars Andrea Riseborough in the/a detective role. Riseborough rocked out her role in "Mandy" (2018), and her "Birdman" and "Oblivion" credits also make her look like she chooses good roles. Definitely going to see this one :D

The Walpurgis Night Black Sabbath seems to be arriving very early in 2020 :D
"Underwater" (January 10th, 2020)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCFWEzIVILc
A thriller about a failing underwater rig. Looks well-done. Stars Kristen Stewart and Vincent Cassel.

Oops.. forgot to do a review of Underwater. It *was* good! :D
And "The Grudge" remake was better than the originals (both the Japanese and American versions), but I think they could have done more gore ;p

Another cool-looking movie from studio A24:
"The Green Knight" (May 29th, 2020)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoJc2tH3WBw
It's a dark retelling of the Arthurian legend. A24 producing it means it has an edge like "Hereditary" and "The VVitch". Dev Patel starring is also a good sign; he did good emotive work in "Lion" (2016). Director David Lowery did "A Ghost Story" (2017), which I still need to watch. :)

This fresh Kevin Bacon & Amanda Seyfried horror will release on demand.. hopefully not for $20 — that's still too much for a home screening. $15 seems more reasonable (more than rental costs for old movies, but less than or equal to the price of a new theater ticket)

"You Should Have Left" (June 19, 2020)

An update on Green Knight: no new release date after it was delayed due to COVID-19. Studios want to wait for reopening of the major U.S. chains (AMC, Cinemark, and Regal) before releasing blockbusters.. Non-corporate theaters have started opening with mask and distancing requirements, and California theaters have been aiming for mid-June reduced capacity screenings. "Tenet" still seems on track for July, so that may be a good estimate for mass re-openings ( http://www.npr.org/2020/05/06/850647100/as-some-states-reopen-theater-owners-are-watching-and-mostly-waiting ).

In Europe, in addition to mask requirements and reduced capacity, theaters have re-opened with plastic panels between and behind the seats.. that could be how it plays out in the States.

I'm renting it tomorrow after work! :p

AMC announced their expected opening day at 90% of locations: July 15th. They say they'll do so with "seat capacity restrictions [about 30% capacity], social distancing efforts, commitments to health, new intensified cleaning protocols, contactless ticketing and expanded mobile ordering of food & beverages ... the ordering of electrostatic sprayers, HEPA filter vacuum cleaners and MERV 13 air ventilation filters wherever we can" (AMC official announcement e-mail).

They'll also require customers to wear masks at many locations ( http://www.amctheatres.com/amc-safe-and-clean ). They took a hit for saying that they won't require masks *everywhere*, but I think that was mainly to cope with the poorly educated cities since they know they'd be herding cats and creating customer service confrontations. They'll still be encouraging it, apparently by selling masks, playing coronavirus warning videos before movies, and [hopefully by shunning the non-believers].

I think it can work, though I'm still hoping them mention plastic dividers behind/between seats. I, personally, would not go to a 7pm Friday showing — not that I didn't already hate big crowds even before a viral apocalypse solidified the issue. :p
..But, when I usually see movies there may be at most 5 people in the theater anyways. If coronavirus keeps more people away, I may be alone more often, so that's a win for me ;D

That was fast:
“AMC Theaters changes course and will require [all] customers to wear face masks”
http://www...s-covid-19-adam-aron-reopening
“As we reopen theatres, we now will require that all AMC guests nationwide wear masks as they enter and enjoy movies at our theatres.”

Of course, Verge news — one of the companies that sensationally reported that AMC wouldn’t require masks at all — omitted the word “all” from its headline, which makes their headline false as written (i.e., requiring masks was not a change of course; only requiring masks for *all* was a change of course)

After delays into August, theaters have opened!!
30–40% capacity, mandatory masks, and reduced screen times for extra cleanings seem to be in place. My local theaters do not list *any* matinees — just prime time showings between 5–8pm. That's probably a matter of staffing. Plus, a (normally) busy theater can afford to run matinees for a little extra money, but in pandemic logic it's probably easier to just get the guaranteed 30–40% seating, have workers there for 5 hours (openers and closers), and call it a day.

Personally, I wouldn't try this on weekends. I haven't stood in any pandemic queues since this all started
(lines to get into businesses), and I wouldn't start now. A weekday 5pm showing, though? It would probably be just a few people in the theater. I may see the new Russell Crowe movie, "Unhinged"...

..
The Zack Synder cut of "Justice League" has gotten off the ground. This trailer shows some of the in-production work mixed with some of the scenes already in the former theatrical cut:
[HBO Max; August 22, 2020]

I'm looking forward to it. I'm aware that DC gets criticized for their movies, but I haven't liked the Marvel movies much and DC has kept it dark. To see a director's cut that removes Joss Whedon's poor choices would be nice. :)

"The Batman - Official Trailer"
[IGN; August 22nd, 2020]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fxbzD_CSD8
(Currently scheduled for October 2021)

Looks really good. They're going for the noir detective version of Batman, which will be a good fit for their inferred villain (the Joker); he'll have to look for clues and solve a puzzle. Their Batmobile also makes sense for once: a souped-up car instead of an impossible-to-obtain military weapon (as in Nolan). Also looks like Robert Pattinson put in some training time, so the fighting looks believable. His acting was never a question, but physical presence was previously a concern.

Behind-the-scenes stills have been released before now, but this is the first trailer for Dune (planned release in December 2020):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-c3-XZXqto

I'm still on board for anything directed by Denis Villeneuve (Bladerunner 2049, Arrival, Sicario), but I kind of wish that the lead role had gone to someone more mature. Not sure I like the delivery of his "fear is the mind killer" line, especially when compared to Kyle MacLachlan's whispered delivery. Its star-heavy cast can also be worrying because they might start pulling it in bad directions. It'll be a real test of Villeneuve's abilities to see how he managed them, especially Dave Bautista, whose melodrama already almost ruined his own scenes in Bladerunner 2049...
