The year 2020 was supposed to be a big year for many movie companies. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has postponed those movies to a later date. The list of these movies includes “Jungle Cruise,” “Mulan,” “Minions: The Rise of Gru,” “Mortal Kombat,” “A Quiet Place 2” and “The Devil All the Time.” This list can and probably will continue to go on and on.
The movie “Jungle Cruise,” involves the ever-famous Dwayne the Rock Johnson and Emily Blunt. This movie is about the Disney World ride, but it is taken to life. According to Rotten Tomato this movie is going to be, “A rollicking thrill-ride down the Amazon with wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff and intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton.” We will get to find out how their adventure goes in 2021.
Another movie that is coming out on Disney+ on September 4 is Mulan: the live action movie. Everyone is wondering if it will be the same as the cartoon or totally different. It sounds like it is just like the cartoon except with no songs, and it will be missing some main characters. Disney+ summarizes the movie like this, “When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father.”
And of course, there is another Minions movie coming out beginning with the life story of Gru as a child. The original movie “Despicable Me,” explains his life as an adult, and how he came to love and adopt three children because of an evil past time. But this time the audience gets to learn his backstory as a child, and how he became so evil.
“Mortal Kombat,” a movie based on a game series, is supposedly coming out in January 2021. The internet movie database (IMBD) defines this movie as, “Three unknown martial artists are summoned to a mysterious island to compete in a tournament and their outcome will be decided on the fate of the world”. So many questions and yet we have to wait until 2021 to find them out.
After the first one people could not wait for the second one with the original title of “A Quiet Place 2;” unfortunately, it is coming out on April 23 2021. “The Abbott family now faces the terrors of the outside world; this movie is a sequel from ‘A Quiet Place.’”
Finally, the last movie under this review is “The Devil All the Time” with both Tom Holland and Robert Patterson. According to the internet movie database, “The Devil All the Time’ follows a cast of compelling and bizarre characters from the end of World War II to the 1960s.”This movie contains a lot of strange characters who endure many problems. This movie is actually a new movie on Netflix, so go ahead and binge this strange adventure of Tom Holland and Robert Patterson.
Hopefully, these movies will come out soon, but until then enjoy these other movie platforms like Disney+, Netflix, Hulu, etc.
