Fans of Blumhouse Productions horror movies should definitely be excited about this one!

The movie is about a swimming pool and has some supernatural and thriller elements to it, and it stars Wyatt Russell (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) and Kerry Condon (The Banshees of Inisherin).

The Book of Clarence: Film Review – Loud And Clear Reviews
Film Review: The Book of Clarence delivers a fascinating story where biblical, epic tones are mixed with humour and satire.

The director of The Harder They Fall is back with a new feature from Sony and Legendary. The Book of Clarence, which was supposed to hit theaters in October 2023 and has been postponed to January 2024 according to Screen International, is a biblical story, just like its title suggests. Starring LaKeith Stanfield, Omar Sy, Benedict Cumberbatch, RJ Cyler, David Oyelowo, Anna Diop and James McAvoy, it’s about a Jerusalem man who tries to use the advent of the Messiah for his own gain but ends up learning about faith instead.

Inshallah A Boy: Cannes Film Review – Loud And Clear Reviews
Film Review: Inshallah A Boy plays out like a claustrophobic tragedy, made all the more relevant by the very real issues it explores.

The first Jordanian film to ever premiere in Cannes is finally coming to theaters in 2024, and you don’t want to miss it. There aren’t many films that can portray complex issues without judging any of the characters, and Inshallah A Boy (Inchallah un Fils) does just that. At the same time, it also raises awareness of a situation that will be unfamiliar to many audiences, in the most effective way possible. The film tells the story of a woman in her thirties (Mouna Hawa’s Nawal) who one day wakes up and finds her husband dead. Which, since she lives in Jordan, means that she will have to fight to keep everything she holds dear, from her house to custody of her daughter, since she is now a widow with no sons, and, to quote a character, “this is how things work”, in Jordan. Not to be missed.

The Promised Land (Bastarden) Film Review – Loud And Clear
Film Review: Nickolaj Arcel’s The Promised Land (Bastarden) is a poignant, if a bit bleak, tale of determination and struggle.

The Promised Land (Bastarden) takes place in 18th century Denmark, where Captain Ludvig Kahlen (Mads Mikkelsen, of Another Round) has just returned from the war with very few possessions. But Ludvig is an ambitious man, and he has a plan. He has decided to build a colony in the name of the King on the most uninhabitable land of the kingdom, and he is determined to work the land and get something to grow on it. But the ruthless Frederik De Schinkel, his neighbor, is threatened by Ludvig’s success and sets out to destroy him. A few more characters eventually join our unlikely hero, in a tragedy about ambition and vengeance that keeps us guessing till the end.

The same cannot be said of her husband Art (Mike Faist, of West Side Story (2021)), who’s on a losing streak, and who becomes Tashi’s next project. But when a match against the washed-up Patrick (Josh O’Connor, of The Crown) – who also happens to be Tashi’s ex-boyfriend and Art’s ex-best friend – is on the horizon, everything changes.

Jeff Nichols‘ highly anticipated The Bikeriders was supposed to come out in December 2023, but it was postponed to June 21, 2024 – which is a shame, as it’s a fantastic film. Inspired by Danny Lyon’s 1968 book of the same name where he interviewed members of a biker gang, the movie follows said biker gang in the 1960s. Mike Faist plays Danny Lyon, who interviews members of the group known as the Vandals – mainly, their leader Johnny (Tom Hardy) and the charming Benny (Austin Butler). We meet them and the rest of the gang through the eyes of Kathy (Jodie Comer), in a story that’s reminiscent of the best biker movies but also heartbreaking in many ways. Don’t miss it!
