Anticipation (Before Trailer): 0/100
Anticipation (After Trailer): 95/100
Before the Morgan trailer dropped today, I didn’t know anything of the project. Heck, I didn’t even know Ridley Scott had a son. The Scott family is already responsible for a number of films I love especially the late Tony Scott who would be Luke Scott’s uncle. Thanks to the pedigree, Scott’s directorial début has a loaded cast — Kate Mara, Anya Taylor-Joy, Toby Jones, Rose Leslie, Boyd Holbrook, Michelle Yeoh, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Paul Giamatti — and a September 2nd release date.
Here’s a bold prediction: Morgan is the surprise hit of the year. The trailer is pitch perfect. Anya Taylor-Joy was incredible earlier this year in The Witch and the rest of the cast has a track record of strong performances. Out of nowhere, Morgan is the movie I’m most excited for this September.
