Judging by the Ron Howard-esque trailer the new Steven Spielberg film The Post looks mighty meh. Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep star.

Perhaps, but it's holding a strong average score of an 8 back at The Other Place, which is almost the only thing that really matters to me when deciding whether or not I wanna see a movie, so if it comes to my area, I imagine I'm likely to check it out regardless.

I'm not very familiar with the source material, but is it possible Alita will be what Ghost in the Shell aspired to be?

Robert Rodriguez has made some great stuff. And look at that cast.
Eh, I thought that trailer was just okay, with a couple of head-slap worthy lines ("The strong prey on the weak down here"...?), and, it is another Hollywood attempt at adapting anime, something that we all know they haven't had the best track record with. I don't mean to sound pessimistic on it, I just really want this Battle Angel to live up to its full potential, is all.

The only thing I can pin on the design decision is that it's a thing in manga and anime for the protagonist to be "overworked" compared to the rest of the cast. Big hair, bigger eyes, generally meant to be the point of focus in a frame while the rest of the cast is more tame in comparison. Alita, in the manga, does have big eyes relative to the rest of the cast, but this seems to be a design decision lost in translation because there is no mention of her eyes in the manga. They are being too literal with the page to screen translation. Here you just want to look away while in the manga she is meant to pop off of the page
This might ease your concerns about Alita's eyes, Nameless:

Good to see that Maisie Williams is branching out beyond Game of Thrones. Can't wait.

I assume you're talking about The New Mutants?:

This is looks like it could go either way between obnoxious, sci-fi horror schlock (the February release doesn't help), or really fucking freaky and cool. It is from the guy who did Ex Machina, so I'll give it the bene of the doubt and wait and see.

This looks like a hard movie to market but February is a new hot zone thanks to Deadpool. The whole fantasy land horror angle looks really cool, I like that Hollywood is getting brave with it's colours and whatnot because Garland is good at injecting his screenplays with trippy moments of serenity (see, Dredd)

February is shaping up nicely between Black Panther and the next Cloverfield universe movie. March, as well, with Pacific Rim 2 and the orgasmic-looking Ready Player One.

This looks interesting. US release date is tomorrow but it doesn't appear to be playing in my city.

The book is pretty great. Its 200 pages of pure mind fuck.

Alita: Battle Angel looks like next year's equivalent to Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, in that some very promising source material has a committed director and impressive (if somewhat obvious as far as CGI is concerned) visuals and a potentially messy script. Hopefully I'm proven wrong.

Annihilation is probably my first anticipated film of 2018. Still haven't gotten around to seeing Ex Machina yet though. Hopefully I rectify that soon.

Neeson is the reason for the season: 19 movies coming this January

Believe it or not, not every release this month looks like complete and utter shite...

Interestingly, the most intriguing items on the list are Netflix debuts, rather than theatrical releases.

I can't wait to see the National Lampoon film. Although I'd prefer Andy Samberg playing Chevy (maybe he's too short?).

Pretty much, it seems; Kevin Feige keeps claiming that Marvel's "committed" to an eventual BW movie, but it's been 8 years since she was introduced into the MCU, and still no concrete plans for it :( Meanwhile, the DCEU, of all franchises, beats them to the punch with Wonder Woman... *shake head* Anyway, I'm not sure if I think this looks good or not (and its director has had a bit of a mixed career so far), but I'm willing to give it a chance if the reviews are strong enough this March.
