‘Chick-Flicks’ or ‘Saturday night couch time’, an inevitable weekend ‘time killer’ calls for no introduction! Whether alone or with a bunch of friends, ‘chick flicks’ have made eyes to weep and funny bones to crack. While labeled as films for the soft-hearted, we are all familiar with how ‘Chick Flicks’ can melt the hearts of hunks too. Whether you like a good high school romance or pratfalling girl fighters in tights, chick flick movies are the way to go.

Every year there are several new chick flicks come out. Most of these films get mixed reviews but it looks like the sun will finally shine on them in the session of 2019-2020. Here is the list of upcoming chick flicks (new releases) that one should keep an eye on. We hope these latest chick flicks are as good as some of the recent ones.

1. Wine Country (2019)

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are known for their charismatic chemistry in their previous films. Wine Country will premier on Netflix soon, where the story follows a group of friends having a celebration over the weekend of a 50th birthday. Plot points are not revealed yet much to our dismay but with Amy directing the film, it is only a justifiable hunch if we are to guess the film to be a ‘laugh riot’ with funny women unfolding a humorous narrative about their lives and aspirations.

2. Legally Blonde 3 (2020)

With Reese Witherspoon’s exciting announcement earlier this year, we are now sure about a third installment in the Legally Blonde series. Playing the fake, eye candy and klutzy Elle Woods, Reese Witherspoon’s performance gave us a few laughs while crafting a powerful narrative with Elle transforming into an ‘independent’ and strong woman by the end of the film. Legally Blonde 3 is in development and will hit the screens in 2020. Even while admitting that Elle’s transformation made her closer to us, the perpetual delight she gifted us while being the ‘emotional train wreck’ that she was, does, in fact, make us wish for her to go back to her ditsy personality purely for our enjoyment.

3. Second Act (2018)

Coming out in December is this Jennifer Lopez starring comedy where she plays an unsatisfied 40-year-old mother who desperately wants a change of job due to low wages. With the help of her friends, she finds her way into a firm and convinces the office personnel that she is a senior level accountant. The plot is peppered with humor and is directed by Peter Segal. Jennifer Lopez will confront responsibilities she has no clue about giving the story a chance to be full of surprising situations. In the era when superhero movies are the norm, perhaps the film will prove to be a relief to those looking for a simple romantic plot for some casual laughs.

4. Charlie’s Angels Reboot (2019)

How can we forget 2000’s screen blazing – crime-fighting women in tights from Charlie’s Angels? Well, to some the franchise is expendable considering its gratuitous frames bursting with the needless sexualization of its female leads, hey but apparently that is what made it worth the money! Coming to the big news of Sony revamping the series with big names attached (Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska) and Elizabeth Banks directing the reboot, one can admit that the ratio is right this time! Except for concern over Kristen Stewart’s perpetually static ‘acting face’, the film already resonates with confidence especially on the writing front helmed by Narcos fame Doug Miro and Carlos Bernard.

5. Bridget Jones’s Diary 4 (2020)

Renee Zellweger will return to her iconic role as the ditsy blond who goes from a low self-esteem, body shamed 32 year old to the peak of resplendent confidence in the rom-com that redefined women leads in Hollywood. With director Sharon Maguire wanting to produce more Bridget Jones for the big screen, it looks like Bridget will sweep the screens across for a couple of more years. With the premise that fits into any time frame which quietly reveals every woman’s deepest insecurities, the compelling story has bestowed its fans with some ‘celluloid relief’ they crave for. Having accumulated unquantifiable amounts of love from a generation of women, the new makers do have a herculean challenge in front of them to make the upcoming flick ‘matter’ to the older and present audience by finding the right balance of Bridget Jones spirit!

6. Mary Queen Of Scots (2018)

A dark and gritty entry to this list – Well, whoever said chick flicks cant be dark! Emanating with power, backstabbing and manipulation this film tells the story of two of the most powerful women.  It follows Mary Queen of Scott whose imperial maneuvers to overthrow the Queen of England sets the premise for the film. Mary and Elizabeth come face to face in this adaptation of John Guy’s ‘Queen of Scots: The true life of Mary Stuart’. A political drama set in the fifteen hundred, where lecherous royal descendants go at each other to claim the ever coveted ‘Throne of England’. The film is a must watch if you consider yourself a fan of powerful female performances, in this case, powerful applies to both performance and roles played.

7. Barbie (2020)

 

Initially Amy Schumer was attached to the project, but she left the film at its writing stage due to scheduling conflicts. Worry not dear fans! Here is more good news for you. Marbot Robbie will be joining the cast of the most anticipated ‘doll tale’ of this decade. Barbie will be brought to life by Sony pictures with the storyline rumored to be similar to films like ‘The Enchanted’ where the titular character gets thrown out of their native fantasy land leading to their confrontations with everyday people peppered with gleeful misadventures that will give us a few laughs. In this case, though, the film better serve justice to the premise and characters since the audience includes fans ranging from toddlers to grandmoms who will cast diabolic frowns at the makers in case of a misfire.

8. Mean Girls Reboot (In Dev)

Imagine a rendition of mean girls with cellphones, Facebook and Instagram. This would be the perfect time to bring back the high school cult classic and we do have a ray of hope in the horizon. Mean girls have been begging for a sequel ever since the first came out with Tina Fey heading the project. Tina’s recent adaptation of the film to the stage also received positive reviews from all around. Most of the old cast members have shown interest in returning to their iconic roles but the general public opinion seems to sway more toward a new storyline with all the complexities of the original. The setting means girls to the ‘present’ scenario will require a narrative appealing to the ‘millennial’ whose definition of being mean involves social media bashing and internet shaming. Not much of news is out regarding casting or about the writer, although the possible sequel has been accumulating a lot of interest for the past few years.

Breakfast at Tiffany was released 56 years go and holds a special place in our hearts. Now the news of a remake in fact is a so refreshing! Director Nick Cassavetes of ‘Notebook’ fame will breath new life into the iconic celluloid extravaganza with Emily Ratajkowski donning the role of the glamourous Hepburn. ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ resonates with its sense of style and characterization that put Hepburn at the zenith of her career. The film which surges up in you like a ‘poem of love and mischief’ narrated by the slender girl in her iconic sunglasses and blissful smile better transition into the new millennia nurturing all the ingredients in the right ratio.

Having a devil for a boss is not easy. Having her haunt you at midnight with phone calls and importunate demands is even more tougher. Well, Andrea Sachs played by Anne Hatheway in the acclaimed ‘Devil Wears Prada’ is rumored to be in developments waiting to come back with a more spirited and invigorating sequel. No one has admitted that the film is going to production but both Anne and Emily who played the roles of assistants to Meryl Streep’s cold hearted, emotionless and diabolic ‘Miranda Presley’, have showed joyous excitement each time asked about the sequel. Having set a new standard in women powered storylines, the film deserves a second chance since the audiences did not have enough of the characters form the original.
