Stuff I’m Looking Forward To

It’s been a little while since I’ve written a post about the books, films, and TV shows that I’m looking forward to, and there’s a lot I’m excited about. Tomorrow is the launch of Paramount+ in the UK, which means that I can finally watch Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. I’ve heard very good things about it, and I will be starting it as soon as I’ve finished work tomorrow. I’ll also be catching up on Star Trek: Discovery, as I missed season 4 when that was airing. I’m not sure what else will be on the service, but there’s hopefully some good stuff on there. Before that though, I will be finishing off the Kenobi series, which I’ve really enjoyed so far.

Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis is also out on Friday, which I’m really looking forward to. I’m out Friday, so won’t be seeing it until Saturday morning, but I have high hopes. The trailer looks great, and I’ve really enjoyed everything else I’ve seen of Luhrmann. Shortly after that Thor: Love and Thunder is just around the corner, and I’m really excited for this one. I thought Ragnarok was okay, but it wasn’t brilliant. This time around though, I think the trailer looks great and have high hopes. The God butcherer storyline is also my favourite story line out of the Thor comics I’ve read.

Next week there’s a new Star Wars book, Shadow of the Sith, which I’m really looking forward to. I’ve fell a little behind with reading all the new Star Wars books, but the premise for this book means that I have to read it. The story follows Luke and Lando as they uncover the secrets of Exegol, something that was first hinted at in Rise of Skywalker. Very excited to read the story.

So that’s what I’m most excited about for the next few weeks. What about you? Is there anything you’re looking forward to watching, playing, reading or listening to? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for reading and until next time,

    Glad you mentioned the Elvis movie, I had completely forgot about it. Knowing Rick Stanley since shortly after the death of Elvis and as he was getting a good kickstart in the ministry, I got to hear a lot about Elvis and what his last years were like, as well as what he relayed to Rick about when he was launching into fame. I’m ready to see how the movie portrays the stories I remember so fondly.

  2. Awesome stuff to look forward to, Ashley! I scored an advanced copy of Catherine Cavendish’s next novel. (She writes Gothic ghost stories.) I’m looking forward to reading it!


  3. Hi Ashley, just landed on your blog and enjoying the visit. Looking forward to Thor, Nope & Bullet Train in the theatres. On Netflix…The Grey Man flick…and also in early August on Netflix…The Sandman. I have high hopes for that series.
