"Despicable Me 3"? What now? Does Gru go bad again? :) What I'd like to see is Mega Mind 2, but the first one wasn't really successful.

I'm really looking forward only to Ep. VIII.

I'm looking forward to just "The Founder."

Might save hassle of movies and watch a bootleg.

An early draft of the screenplay for IT leaked last week. I read the whole thing last Sunday evening.

I can't wait. It's one of my favorite Steven King books. This movie only covers half of the book, when the characters are kids. If it is successful, they will do another one covering when the characters are adults.

Thank heavens for Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk) or we wouldn't get any films that are not part of a franchise or reboots.

Christopher Nolan is the reason I'm looking forward to that movie. I have been underwhelmed by the trailers so far. But I have faith in his storytelling skills.

I think they showed 5 minutes or so of Dunkirk footage before certain IMAX screenings of Rogue One, and I heard good reviews of that footage...

When the printer jams at the same time the internet goes down, close to a project deadline, and they have to call the IT department?

Scary stuff :)

Dunkirk is undercovered in films.

Dunkirk is a good example of wartime spin for morale reasons.

Really, it was an unmitigated defeat that brought the situation about. Was it important to rescue so many soldiers? Hell, yes, it was. Looks at what happened to the other side in a similar situation after a failed siege. But this also marked the expulsion of allied forces from mainland Europe for years.

It's hard enough to celebrate a necessary military victory, like say the D-Day landings or Gettysburg. It's far more difficult to celebrate a defeat only because it was not as terribly bad as it could have been.
