A 20th Century Fox Retrospective Scrapbook: 2019 and Beyond

Recommended Posts

Well, this is it, the final installment. Thousands of films and it all leads here. Fox became part of Disney officially in march in 2019, much chaos has followed. Still, despite a rather sparse number of releases so far, there are many more Fox films waiting for their release dates, so I will include those too for a complete picture. So call it a preview of things to come.

Again Fox handled an animated film overseas but not in the US.


The Kid Who Would Be King mixed elements of the King Arthur legend into a modern setting.


Alita: Battle Angel was meant to start a new fantasy series.


Keira Knightley starred in The Aftermath, a love affair saga set during the years of World War II. It was released  the week the Disney takeover was completed.


Breakthrough was a religious film about a real-life miracle.


Tolkein told of the early pre-writing years of the famed fantasy author. 


And Dark Phoenix was the latest X-Men saga, and seemingly the last for a while.



So those are the releases so far this year. Also on the release docket with confirmed dates for 2019 are the following.

Stuber is an action comedy. it will also be the first R rated film handled by Disney in 6 years. One little note is that mira Sorvino, who has a small part in it, is returning to a major studio film for the first time in 12 years.


the Art of Racing in the Rain is another film with a talking dog (this time, a pooch with Kevin Costner's voice)


ready of Not serves up horror mixed up with dark comedy


Ad Astra is an outer space saga with Brad Pitt, Ruth Negga, Tommy Lee Jones, Liv Tyler, and Donald Sutherland.


The Woman in the window is a psychological drama that stars Amy Adams, Gary Oldman, and Julianne Moore. No official pictures yet though. Only ones of gaffes or set design.

Jojo Rabbit is an audacious  black satire set during the time of Nazi Germany. I have a feeling this will be highly controversial. After all this is the type of film where Hitler (played by Sam Rockwell) is portrayed as a boy's goofball imaginary friend. Scarlett Johansson also appears.

Another long time action series returns with Terminator: Dark Fate. And Linda Hamilton is back.


Ford v Ferrari is a saga of the race between the car companies to form an ideal race car.


Spies in Disguise is an animated spy spoof for kids.


And Terrence Malick returns with A Hidden Life, the true and tragic saga of a man who refused to join the Nazi army because of his pacifist, religious views as well as his feelings about Hitler. He was killed, and has since become a Blessed.


Filmed and awaiting 2019 release dates are:

Antlers, a supernatural horror film with Keri Russell.

Lucy in the Sky, the saga of an astronaut whose life unravels when she comes back from a long voyage. Natalie Portman, Dan Stevens, and Ellen Burstyn star.


And Nomadland, essentially a one woman show for Frances McDormand as a wanderer around the West.



Also in the offing over the next few years either confirmed or in development) are all of the following:

For the blockbuster crowd: 4 more Avatar films, followups to the Greatest Showman, Kingsman, Big Trouble in Little China, Alita: Battle Angel, the Simpsons movie,  big screen spinoffs of the animated shows Family Guy and Bob's Burgers, a whole raft of new kids movies, more superhero films, horror titles, and action (even one on a submarine), and remakes of Death on the Nile (again with Kenneth Branagh), Clue, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, West Side Story (by Steven Spielberg, and Rita Moreno is back), Nightmare Alley (by Guillermo Del Toro, and starring Leonardo DiCaprio), and Escape from New York, a screen version of the Broadway musical Monty Python's Spamalot.

Elsewhere: the French Dispatch (Wes Anderson's latest, a musical no less, with Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Timothee Chalamet, Saoirse Ronan, Tilda Swinton, Willem Dafoe, Benicio Del Toro, Christoph Waltz, Owen Wilson, Henry Winkler, Lois Smith, Lea Seydoux, Jeffrey Wright, Bob Balaban, Griffin Dunne, Elisabeth Moss, and Kate Winslet), Wendy which is a new film from the maker of Beasts of the Southern Wild, Downhill a comedy drama remake of the Swedish film Force Majeure with Will Ferrell and Julia louis-Dreyfuss, biopics on Alvin Ailey, Tammy Faye Baker, and Otto Frank (Kenneth Branagh is attached to this one).

So this is it for now, but hopefully there will be more in the future. :)
