New York City’s Best Films of the Year 2018
Hollywood has been having a hard time finding new ways to keep movies on the big screen.
Last year’s slate of slate films was pretty much just a collection of short comedies and dramas that all sort of sort of seemed to be just waiting for the right moment to shine.
So it was no surprise to see that the big-screen adaptation of the sci-fi novel Blade Runner 2049 hit theaters in the fall, only to be immediately snubbed by theaters around the country.
While a handful of the big titles that didn’t make the cut, like the highly anticipated Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and a pair of movies from director Justin Lin, made it to the big screens, many of the movies on this year’s big-picture slate were a lot of fun.
Here’s a look at the 20 best films of the year from New York, and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
Blade Runner 2047 is the first movie in the big sequel franchise that stars Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling as the titular protagonist, Ryan Reynolds and Cara Delevingne as the cop on the run from the bad guys, and Michael B. Jordan as the Blade Runner.
The movie opens in theaters on March 12.
It is directed by Denis Villeneuve (La Femme Nikita, Arrival) and stars Ryan Goslin, Ana de Armas, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, and Danny McBride.
The film also stars Andy Serkis, Ana Gasteyer, and Joel Kinnaman.
(It is directed, in part, by Ryan Reynolds.)
In the new sequel, the film stars Harrison Fucking Ford as Ryan, with Michael B Jordan as The Blade Runner, and Ana deArmas, Sean Bean, and Jessie Eisenberg as the cops.
In the original Blade Runner franchise, it was directed by Ridley Scott, and stars Harrison’s father, Harrison, with Ana’s daughter, Ana.
The first movie grossed over $1 billion worldwide.
The cast also includes Joel Kinnam as Ryan’s old mentor, Dr. Frank West, who takes over as the new Blade Runner when he dies.
The sequel, directed by Villeneau, stars Russell Crowe, Robin Wright, Michael Biehn, and Andy SerKis.
(The movie grosses $1.7 million.)
The cast also has two new faces, as director Jordan reprises his role as Dr. Radek Zelenka, who was played by Harrison Ford in the original film.
Jordan is reprising his role in the film as well, and he also reprises the role of Harrison’s best friend and mentor, Radeka.
The cast is repping the role as well as the role that Harrison played in the first film.
The Blade, directed in collaboration with Michael Bay and Universal Pictures, was released on July 13, 2019.
The new sequel is titled Blade Runner: The Endgame, and it stars Michael B Kelly, Jared Leto, Marion Cotillard, and Walton Goggins.
The plot of the film revolves around Harrison becoming a police officer when he is killed during a robbery in a New York warehouse.
He then returns to the New York of the future where he works with other police officers to save the world.
The film also features the return of Harrison Ford as Dr, West, in a cameo role.
He returns to life as an old man who lives in a trailer park on his deathbed and appears to be in his 80s.
He also appears in a short film that was shot in the warehouse and which is about the time that Harrison’s past life begins.
The trailer is set up to the same day that Harrison takes the first step towards becoming the Blade.
The new film is directed and written by Denis Stoff and stars Michael Biehl, Robin McKean, Jared McKeown, Jared Gilmore, and Kelly McGillis.
The actors are repping their roles in the role, and the film is set to release on July 20.
