UPCOMING MOVIES AND WEB-SERIES TO WATCH OUT FOR.
Good Morning Sir, Sorry I couldn’t make it to the presentation, I was down with flu. Extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused, I kept down my phone. Wrapped myself in the blanket, with Doritos and salsa dip on my lap. Geoffrey is such an ass! What the hell? How could he? I shouted to myself, as I was binge watching Game of Thrones. I can bet that is half of the population right now.
Netflix and Chill has become a slogan for the teenagers these days. Movies and Web series are the ultimate guide when it comes to escaping the boredom created by our mundane lifestyle. Movies and Web series have been a blessing for the millennial. The craze for movies and web series can be judged by the number of Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar and Voot Subscription.
Name any genre and you could find it online, depending on your mood. From Rom-coms, to Thriller and Sci-fi, Netflix and other online portals have it all.
Some of the Upcoming Hollywood and Bollywood movies and web series that I can’t wait to watch, and make an excuse for at work are as follows –
Upcoming Hollywood Movies to watch out for –
- Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald – My undying love for fantasy, JK Rowling’s Screenplay and Eddie Redmayne and Johnny Depp’s Hotness makes this movie the most awaited! Like I could literally cancel any plan for this movie! I’m still waiting for my Hogwards Letter!! And Dumbledore to take me away. Releasing this November 16
- The Nun – Being a fanatic fan of horror movies, the movie I am anticipating the most for is The Nun. Directed by Gary Dauberman, The Nun comes before Annabelle, The Conjuring. It is claimed to be the darkest Chapter, and that’s exactly what keeps me rooting for it. I can’t wait to tip toe to the bathroom and then come back running, after watching the movie. The Nun releases on September 7.
Upcoming Bollywood Movies –
- Stree – Starring my absolute favourite Rajkumar Rao, and the always chirpy Shraddha Kapoor (unlike her father) is about to hit the theatres this August. Being a horror comedy Stree is based on the urban legend of Nale Ba, who calls the men by their name and abducts them, leaving their clothes behind. Sounds ridiculously absurd right? That makes it more fun. In the trailer Rao is seen romancing the so called ‘ghost’ by the name of Stree. Stree is for sure gonna be one hell of a ride.
- Bati Gul Meter Chalu – Based on a very prominent issue of corruption in the light system, Batti Gul Meter Chalu tackles the whole situation in a funny yet emotional way. It is an Indian drama film. Starring Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor yet again, in pivotal roles. Directed by Shri Narayan Singh, the movie is set to release in September end.
Upcoming Hollywood Web series to look out for –
- Maniac – Starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, Maniac will be a dark-comedy series about a man who lives a fantasy life in his dreams? Isn’t that all of us? Wanting to live in a world of our own fantasies. Releasing on Netflix.
- The Innocents – Being a fan of both romance and sci-fi, I guess Innocents was literally handpicked for me. With a tease of Romeo and Juliet, it caters to the sci-fi genre. Starring Sorcha Groundshell and Percelle, runaway teenagers find themselves trapped in a dangerous and new world, discovering their mysterious abilities.
Upcoming Bollywood Web series to look out for –
- Sacred Games Season 2 – You’d be kidding me if you said you aren’t excited for Gaitonde’s return, and Why Trivedi will be saved and what’s actually going to happen in Mumbai? Based on Vikram Chandra’s 2006 thriller novel, Sacred Games is first Indian Web Series to be announced on Netflix, having actors like Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Radhika Apte and Saif Ali Khan! If that’s not an enough reason for you to watch it…..Anurag Kashyap and Vikramaditya Motwane directs it.
- Maid in Heaven – Just putting Zoya Akhtar’s name in the directors list is enough to get me excited about any movie or web series. Originally, coming on Amazon Prime, Maid in Heaven is a series about wedding planners. Rumours has it that Farhan Akhtar, might just make a cameo appearance in it. Enough said.
These are some of the binge worthy shows that you and your friends can probably watch to make the most of your time and entertain yourself when everything seems to go downhill. Just open a box of ice cream and push the play button and watch how 1:30 pm becomes 1:30 am.
