Just what we needed

Who doesn’t love a female lead? In 2019, we’re expecting plenty of amazing films starring amazing women – our fave!

So, get ready for those nights in with the girls because here’s is a list of some of the best films set to arrive this year.

Isn’t It Romantic?

Who doesn’t love Rebel Wilson? After her role in How To Be Single, she has proven that she’s not only gas but an absolute queen.

In this film, Rebel stars alongside Mr Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth.

And the best news? We don’t have to wait too long for this baby! It’s set to be released to Netflix on February 28, so you can watch it in the comfort of your own home.

What Men Want

Taraji P. Henson is an acting chameleon, showing us over the years that she can take on both serious and hilarious roles. After starring in Hidden Figures, Henson is taking the lead role in a hilarious new comedy where she unexpectedly has the ability to read the minds of all men.

Someone Great

If you’re a fan of Jane the Virgin, you’ll adore this. Gina Rodriguez has shown us that she is more than capable of taking on the lead role in this genre.

Heading to our favourite streaming device on April 19, Rodriguez will cure her broken heart after breaking up with her long-time man by taking a hilarious girl’s trip to New York City.

A Netflix date it is…

The Hustle

Starring my all-time favourite princess and fashion queen, Anne Hathaway, alongside the queen of comedy Rebel Wilson, this film is a female-centred remake of the 1998 comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

In May 2019, the pair will play two hilarious con-artists who’ll compete against each other to be the best and drive the other out of town.

Last Christmas

The bubbly Me Before You star Emilia Clarke is once again ditching her dragons and entering the world of romance this November.

You just know that fans of Emilia’s previous work are going to be all over this new movie and yes, we include ourselves in this group.

There is a while to go before we’ll get to see this one but we’re very excited…
