Venice Film Festival is almost here so we decided to write a new list of what greatness is coming our way. We hope you enjoy it.
Venice Film Festival returns for its 78th edition, running from September 1-11. This year, the film festival will showcase movies from 59 countries…here are our favourites.
It seems like we have been waiting forever for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune remake. I really hope it has been worth the wait. And there’s no better place than Venice Film Festival to showcase this new sci-fi epic. Villeneuve hasn’t let me down yet, he is a superb filmmaker and the glimpse of the world he has created for Dune is jaw-droppingly beautiful.
Another film we have been waiting forever on. Edgar Wright delves into the horror genre for his new film Last Night In Soho. Starring Anya Taylor-Joy (are you surprised?), Thomasin McKenzie & Diana Riggs.
A fashion designer is somehow able to go back in time to the 1960s. She meets a wannabe singer and realises that this world she is in isn’t as glamourous as she first thought.
It looks like Edgar Wright has left the comedy at the door for Last Night In Soho. I can’t wait to see what he delivers with some serious horror.
An Italian movie set during WW2, Freaks Out is about a tiny group of good friends who are all part of a freakshow attraction in a circus. They are left to fend for themselves in a not so accepting society when their circus is bombed by the Nazis.
From director/writer Paul Schrader (Raging Bull) and producer Martin Scorsese. The Card Counter stars the fantastic Oscar Isaac with a supporting cast from Willem Dafoe and Tye Sheridan.
Described as a revenge thriller, an ex-military interrogator turned gamble must confront the demons of his past.
It looks like Ridley Scott is going to have two huge movies releasing soon; the Adam Driver and Lady Gaga starring House of Gucci and The Last Duel starring Jodie Comer, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Adam Driver.
The Last Duel tells the story of a duel offered by King Charles VI to settle a dispute.
Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Nicole Holofcener penned the script.
From legendary writer & director, Pedro Almodovar and starring the great Penelope Cruz. Parallel Mothers focuses on a group of mothers, who all gave birth on the same day. Expect a lot of laughs and some deep social commentary.

I don’t think this flick will be for me but that does not mean it won’t be a great flick. There’s no doubt in my mind that Stewart will give an oscar worthy performance. The story of some of the life of Princess Diana.
Written by Steven Knight, writer and creator of the hit series, Peaky Blinders and Tom Hardy drama, Locke.
LEAVE NO TRACES
A Polish movie about the brutal beating and murder of a boy by the military. The film focuses on the one witness who saw the killing and how he becomes the number 1 enemy of the state.
