To date, The McConaissance has been — from his chick flick days to the height of mad in The Wolf of Wall Street and shedding sweet, galactic tears in Interstellar, Matthew McConaughey’s career has been one of the most captivating in Hollywood. Thankfully, it shows no signs of slowing down.
We’ve delved into the depths of his IMDb page so you don’t have to and whipped up a guide to his three next big projects, which you can read all about below:
Character: Buster Moon
Who else stars? Scarlett Johansson, Taron Egerton, Reese Witherspoon
What’s it about? A bunch of anthropomorphic animals entering a singing competition to raise money for their local theater.
Why you should watch: Ever wondered what an “optimistic koala” voiced by Matthew McConaughey would be like? Here’s your chance.
Release date: December 21, 2016
Character: Kenny Wells
Who else stars? Bryce Dallas Howard, Toby Kebbell
What’s it about? Searching for gold in the deep, dark jungles of Indonesia.
Why you should watch: Well, considering Indonesia is located pretty close to the equator and has a tropical climate, one would imagine that if the film is accurate in regard to humidity you’ll get to see McConaughey with his top off a fair amount. Magic Mike in the jungle vibes. Don’t mind if I do.
Release date: December 25, 2016
The Dark Tower
Character: Man in Black
Who else stars? Katheryn Winnick, Idris Elba, Jackie Earle Haley
What’s it about? An adaptation of Stephen King’s seminal novel of the same name, the plot centers around a gunslinging Idris Elba as Roland Deschain as he roams through a post-apocalyptic landscape searching for a dark tower with the aim of preserving humanity.
Why you should watch: The majority of Stephen King adaptations make for absolutely brilliant cinematic experiences, and you can’t really go wrong with an Elba-King-McConaughey sandwich, IMO.
Release date: February 17, 2017
