Eighth Grade is a comedy about Kayla, a teenager trying to survive the last week of her disastrous eighth-grade year, before leaving to start high school.
Written / directed by Bo Burnham; Josh Hamilton, Elsie Fisher and Emily Robinson star…
I don’t know much about the American school system but I have definitely heard about High School being ‘the worst.’ With that said, I hope that Kayla won’t find out that high school is actually the real ‘disaster.’
I like this trailer. I’m excited about the film’s potential usefulness because of the way it covers some of the truth of the eighth grade experience, plus its focus on the subject of being authentically oneself. The trailer shows us a teacher getting involved in ‘dabbing’ and another one using the slang of her students to fit in. Clearly even the adults need to learn to ‘be themselves.’
Written and directed by Dan Fogelman, Life Itself is a movie about people from New York to Spain whose lives intersect over the course of different generations…
Annette Bening, Oscar Isaac, Antonio Banderas and Olivia Wilde star…
If you were thinking ‘wait a minutes. that synopsis sounds kind of familiar’, you’d be right, for director Fogelman is the creator of This Is Us, a hit TV show about the lives of the members of one family captured over the course of different generations.
I like This Is Us. It pretty much makes me cry at least once every episode. That’s because what’s captured very well in the writing is so true. One might also argue that I’m easily moved. I expect the same thing will likely happen with Life Itself – but of course, a different story with new characters.
Olivia Cooke, Samuel L. Jackson and Laia Costa also star.
Directed by Baltasar Kormákur, Adrift is an action/ adventure/ drama based on the true survival story of a young couple who find themselves facing one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history.
Shailene Woodley, Sam Claflin and Jeffrey Thomas star…
I’ll be watching for reasons including Sam Claflin’s wonderful beard. Of course, the story, particularly anything useful I could pick up about survival at sea are also motivating reasons to watch.
Written and directed by Dominic Savage; Gemma Aterton and Dominic Cooper star in The Escape, a story about an ordinary woman who makes an extraordinary decision that changes the course of her life forever.
Frances Barber, Montserrat Lombard and Marthe Keller also star…
So much of what happens in this nicely edited trailer is part of any girl’s worst nightmare. I’m really excited to see where this story goes and any uncomfortable truths it’ll likely shine a light on.
I’m looking forward to a great performance by the cast, Aterton in particular.
Andre Roussimoff better known as André The Giant and also known as ‘The Eighth Wonder of the World’ is the subject of today’s documentary trailer.
Featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robin Wright, Hulk Hogan, Billy Crystal and more, André The Giant is a documentary about the life and career of professional wrestler and actor André Roussimoff…
I was never the biggest wrestling fan but I do remember Roussimoff in The Princess Bride (1987).
I’ll watch in part because I’m quite sure that André The Giant is the only giant I can name. His personality intrigues me. I’m also a fan of his sense of drama and excellent comic timing – as demonstrated by what happens shortly after 1:41 minutes in to this trailer.
Ok… I can name the B.F.G but he was never real now, was he?
