Focus Features Fall Movie Preview 2017
Focus Features puts out some amazing films. Last year I had the opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at Kubo and the Two Strings from LAIKA and Focus Features. It was an incredible film full of so much to think about.
The Fall movie trailers from Focus Features promise much of the same for the rest of this year!
Victoria & Abdul
Story: The extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s (Academy Award winner Judi Dench) remarkable rule. When Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal), a young clerk, travels from India to participate in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, he is surprised to find favor with the Queen herself. As the Queen questions the constrictions of her long-held position, the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance with a loyalty to one another that her household and inner circle all attempt to destroy.

These films all promise to be pretty intense but if you’re like Justin and I, they make good date night movies because they’re a good break from the daily life with kids! I know we’ll be checking them out!
