“Reality is stranger than fiction.” Yes, the mind is able to build the worlds that don’t otherwise exist. Yes, we can conjure extraordinary tales about exceptional heroes. We can create romance and horror, and through our imaginations, we can make the impossible quite possible. Without the imagination, we wouldn’t have places like the Shire, Hogwarts, or Westeros. There is no limit to imagination. However, no matter how mundane our lives might seem, reality has a stronger grip on our lives and is perfectly capable of doing things that we never thought of. No matter how farfetched the imagination might be, it is always rooted in reality. There are so many stories of people who have done things that are too exceptional to believe. And this is why they make such great fodder for cinema. A good story becomes even more impressionable when you know that it is true. Humans are capable of all sorts of things, good or bad, and the more bizarre their doings, the better the movie.
Over the years, through biographical films, we have seen stories that have changed the way we think about everything. The age-old formula of converting true stories into films has always worked for Hollywood. In the world of fiction, people sometimes crave for reality. In the times of dwindling attention span, documentaries are off the list for an average movie-goer because (let’s be honest) they don’t draw you in the way feature film does. So, biopics or movies based on true stories are the best form of entertainment when telling a factual story like a fiction. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what are the next movies based on real life? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming movies based on true stories scheduled to release in 2019 and beyond.
