Hey ladies!!!…  and gents 🙂

If you’re a movie fan like myself and especially enjoy a good girl-empowering/female-hero movie then this post is for you.  I’ve compiled a list of must-see films to look out for this year, in no particular order.  Here goes:

1. Oceans 8

An all female-led heist comedy, a sequel in the Oceans 11 movie series where it turns out George Clooney has a con sister!  Do we need any excuse to see 8 gorgeous women execute the con of the century stealing fabulous jewellery at a fashion forward Met Gala! Set a girls night reminder right here 😉  Starring Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Rihanna and more.

2.  Proud Mary

I just love Taraji P Henson and I can’t wait to see her take the lead in this action thriller.  The film follows an assassin who must look after a young teenaged boy after a hit job goes wrong.

3.  Mamma Mia 2

She sequel of Mamma Mia 1, one of the best musicals I’ve seen featuring some of the greatest hits from Abba.  Of course it made the list.  Starring Amanda Seyfried.

4.  Tully

If you’re a mom then this comedy drama is sure to make you feel less “alone”.  Starring Charlize Theron.

5.  Acrimony

A faithful wife (Taraji P. Henson) tired of standing by her devious husband (Lyriq Bent) is enraged when it becomes clear she has been betrayed.  Brace yourself for Tyler Perry’s latest drama, Acrimony.

6.  Breaking In

Gabrielle Union in action, protecting her kids at all cost when 4 men break into her late dad’s house in search of something.

7.  Annihilation

Science fantasy/Horror starring Natalie Portman. A biologist signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition where the laws of nature don’t apply.

8.  Tomb Raider

Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared.

9.  Red Sparrow

I figure this is 2018’s take on Black Widow starring Jennifer Lawrence.  If you too are into action, intelligence, spy type movies then this one is for you.
