Jesus, what a month this is for nerds like us! Don’t pretend you’re better than me, you’re reading my article. At least I get paid for this stuff, you’re doing it for free. Whether you’re into movies, games or music – it’s going to be a ridiculously amazing month!
It’s even pretty hard to just narrow this month down to just a handful of the best releases, so without boring you any further: take a look below to see some cool stuff coming out very, very soon!
Star Wars: Forces of Destiny
It’s Star Wars, so it’s bound to be pretty popular. The cool thing is that this will be an anime series taking place around all eras of Star Wars, and it’s considered canon!
Any movie with Charlize Theron is automatically amazing, and this one looks like it could be a good thriller/action flick. It also stars Professor Xavier from the new X-Men movies.
Splatoon was heaps of fun when it released and it was quite the commercial success, so the sequel was pretty much inevitable. If you like the first one: expect more (but better) of the same. If you never played the first one: try this one. It’s gonna be good. It’s only on Nintendo Switch, though.
War for the Planet of the Apes
The third prequel to the original trilogy, this is the movie that’ll put this entire franchise up to Star Wars standards. Think “Revenge of the Sith”, but without the lightsabers. But it has Woody Harrelson and angry apes. Pretty much the same as Ewan McGregor vs. Hayden “I HATE YOU!” Christensen, right?
Something To Tell You – Haim
This all-female indie/pop-rock band is coming out with a new album early this month. If you’re into music that isn’t made on a laptop in Fruityloops, give this album a listen. If you don’t like it, you have my permission to throw it away.
I know what you’re thinking: another Nolan movie and another World War II movie. Like you, I thought the world had grown tired of both! That said, it actually looks pretty decent. And it stars Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy and (for some reason unknown to me) Harry Styles from One Direction. Add that last bit in to convince your girlfriend to go see it.
The first solo Spidey movie of the MCU. This one has “high hopes” written all over it, since Hollywood audiences have been waiting for a proper Spider-Man since long before Tobey McGuire put on the suit. Will this one finally give us what we want? If it doesn’t, it still has Iron Man in it. That’s always cool.
Game of Thrones: Season 7
I think we’ve reached the point in society where this no longer needs an explanation. Brace yourself, because winter is actually coming in this one. And so will the spoilers, so avoid the Internet if you don’t own HBO!
