Look up your favorite directors, who has new work coming next year?
*looking up favorite directors*
From my top 25 directors only one is still alive and he hasn't made a film since 2011. :lol: (#12 Bela Tarr)
The next alive one is Spike Jonze at #34 and he hasn't made a feature since 2013.
I guess I won't be awaiting anything. I'll just see what pops up.

My list is tragically thin, which is sad as I remember being incredibly excited for both '17 and '18: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls021877879/

(Some of the films on the list will also likely not come in '19, if at all)

You must be really unenthused with your list, you haven't even made it public. :P

Fixed, but yes. I have a list of favorite active directors, 100+, and I go over their upcoming films every year - usually it ends up with a solid starting list, but not this time.

Are you interested in the new film from Riley Stearns (Faults)? That was one of our original FGFF discoveries so I'm pretty curious to see his follow-up.

Celine Sciama doing a period film? :wub: New Jarmusch is always exciting, and obviously The Irishman. Malick's new one sounds really promising. And I can't resist excitement for Toy Story 4, even if it's annoying that it's being continued after the perfect trilogy ending. New Tarantino is always an event, and the Manson Family story is fascinating so I'm curious to see what he does with it, even if I'm increasingly going off his films. That Mendonça film also sound really interesting.

Some others I'm intrigued by, after researching for a bit:

Wendy (Benh Zeitlin - finally a follow-up to Beast of the Southern Wild)
Annette (Leos Carax - might be ready next year?)
About Endlessness (Roy Andersson)
The Truth (Koreeda - first film outside Japan)
Walking to Paris (Greenaway)
Temblores (Jayro Bustamante)
Waiting for the Barbarians (Ciro Guerra)
Where'd You Go, Bernadette (Linklater)
Bergman Island (Mia Hansen-Love)
Untitled new Noah Bambauch
Velvet Buzzsaw (Dan Gilroy)
The Personal History of David Copperfield (Armando Ianucci)
Benedetta (Paul Verhoeven)
A House in the Sky (Garth Davis)
Light of my Life (Casey Affleck)
The True History of the Kelly Gang (Justin Kurzel)
Native Son (Rashid Johnson)
To The Stars (Martha Stephen)

On the TV front: 63 Up, Big Little Lies season 2 (Andrea Arnold), hopefully The Underground Railroad (Barry Jenkins) and Tong Wars (Wong Kar-wai) and The Eddy (Damien Chazelle), and of course the final chapter of GoT.

Cats, this seems like an unofficial sequel to The Measure of a Man. Maybe one for your second list, if you haven't heard about it?

I don't really have favourite directors and have no idea what's coming out. I've only heard of one film mentioned in any of these lists :/ (If Beale Street Could Talk). I really need to start trying to be up to date with film, this forum is literally my only source.

re: flaiky, yup, I covered that one for my Cannes thread. Among critics, it got pretty mediocre reviews, but I'm still interested enough to check it out if it happens to be readily accessible, if only b/c the pairing of Brize + Lindon worked so well last time!

I didn't mention TV, but April sees the return of both Game of Thrones and its anime counterpart Attack on Titan with two hugely anticipated seasons. Plus, the last Avengers movie. It's a big month for nerds!

re: mightysparks - That's why we're here! ;)

Haven't really looked ahead much to what's coming out in 2019, but a few on the radar:

High Life (Claire Denis). 2018 title I guess but not coming to US for a while.

Ad Astra (James Gray)

Benedetta (Paul Verhoeven)

And did I hear that Celine Sciamma has a new film coming out? Awesome. (l)
