Trailer Trash

  • If you’re a sucker for light and fluffy movies, bookmark Storks – adorbs animated babies and talking birds!
  • The long-anticipated third instalment, Bridget Jones’s Baby is coming to screens in September. YASSS.
  • The Legend of Tarzan is coming out mid-year and it’s abs, abs, abs!
  • Dead 7 is the movie we never knew we needed – zombie apocalypse with 90’s boy-bands – no joke. Nick Carter not only wrote the story but he’s starring alongside his Backstreet Boys brothers A.J. and Howie. Top of my watchlist!
