The charming smile, the way she organically blends with every character she plays and intricate dexterities are something we look for in every Julia Robert project. Very few actresses have honed the skill of grace and subtlety alongside simplicity like Roberts. Julia Roberts is more than just a charmer – she owns the role she does as if no one else could do it like her or the simply the character was simply scripted, keeping her mind. Can you imagine Notting Hill or Erin Brockovich without her? I guess not! She is one of the most sensational personalities who had taken the 90s by storm. The waves started off with ‘Pretty Woman (1990s)’ and continues to date with ‘Wonder (2017)’ and she just refuses to age!
We are pretty sure that as an ardent follower you never want to miss a thing about Julia Roberts. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Julia Roberts movie? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming Julia Roberts films scheduled to release in 2018 and 2019. We can only hope that the latest new Julia Roberts movie could be as good as some of her recent ones.
1. Ben is Back (2018)
This movie is written and directed by Peter Hedges with Lucas Hedges, Kathryn Newton and Julia Roberts constituting the principal cast. Julia Roberts is all set to play the role of the mother of Lucas and plot seems interesting. Ben Burns(Lucas) returns home to an unwary family in Christmas, caught in serious trouble and the story revolves around how Roberts saves her family from downfall after learning about her son’s danger. A strong yet affectionate character is expected out of Roberts and the film is premised on high-octane drama and action. Hopefully, this is set to take our breaths away (literally!).
