The beautiful elephants, the lovely Davis (a.k.a. Charlotte from Sex And The City) and the sunny location are my reasons for wanting to see this one.

I also definitely enjoyed that ‘African mistletoe‘ joke.

Starring Alicia Vikander, Riley Keogh and Jack Huston, Earthquake Bird is the story of a love triangle that leads to a horrific murder. A murder for which a young woman named Lucy (Vikander) bemomes a prime suspect.

Directed by Wash Westmoreland and set in Tokyo, Japan, additional key cast for Earthquake Bird includes Kiki Sukezane, Ken Yamamura, Crystal Kay…

I’m certainly intrigued by this story of jealousy between ‘friends.’ The last time I was pleasantly surprised by a story witha similar theme was in Always Shine (2016), starring Mackenzie Davis – who delivered a great performance.

I’m ready for what looks like a good rather dark turn for Vikander.

Yurino, Naoki Kobayashi, Akiko Iwase, Kenta Ogawa, Niclas Ericsson, Kazuhiro Muroyama also star.

ANNA (2019): The Thing I Liked…

The story of writer /director Luc Besson’s Anna is one that I don’t completely regret watching but I certainly didn’t love it either.

Anna stars Sasha Luss as Anna Poliatova; a stunning beauty with impressive secret skills and strength. Qualities that make her one of the world’s most feared government assassins.

I sat down to watch Anna with mild expectations of the film probably having similarities to Charlize Theron’s Atomic Blonde (2017)The main difference I found between Anna and Atomic Blonde is that even though Anna is quite engaging overall, Anna unlike Atomic Blonde, left me feeling as though the whole experience was almost completely hollow. Very surface level and in some ways a tad silly.

It’s interesting because the acting wasn’t terrible. Therefore, I’m thinking the issue is the story edit which played a part in me having minimal emotional connection to Luss’s character’s journey. Of course I wanted her to win – always, but the the question of ‘why does this feel so frivolous?’ remained with me through to the very end.

Perhaps you’ll find Anna to be a better experience than I did. The fight scenes, though not the most polished I’ve ever seen, they are quite entertaining. Give it a chance and see if you’re especially curious. Or…

…watch Atomic Blonde instead.

A brand new second trailer for Disney’s  Lady And The Tramp remake is here.

Starring Tessa Thompson, Sam Elliott, Justin Theroux and Thomas Mann, director Charlie Bean’s film tells the romantic story of a sheltered uptown Cocker Spaniel dog, and a streetwise downtown Mutt…

Firstly, I need to comment on how lovely Tessa Thompson’s voice is.

Second, I’m very ready for this story to unfold, especially because right now, it’s hard for me to believe that such a seemingly sweet young family would completely abandon their Lady.

Lastly, I wonder if they’ll both get adopted. If you know, don’t tell me.

Kiersey Clemons, Ashley Jensen, Benedict Wong, F. Murray Abraham, Ken Jeong, Arturo Castro and Yvette Nicole Brown also star.

TELL ME WHO I AM (2019): New Trailer For Documentary About Secrets & Lies Between Twins Alex And Marcus Lewis…

Based on the autobiography by twins Alex and Marcus Lewis. Tell Me Who I Am is the story of what Marcus did at 18 years of age, when he was faced with an ethical dilemma. The dilemma being whether he should tell his twin brother the horrific truth about his life after losing most of his memory in the wake of a motorcycle accident, or decide to make up a whole new idilic one.

A result of director Ed Perkins’s working with the Lewis brothers Tell Me Who I Am promises an extraordinary story of love, memory, trauma, personal responsibility…

I need to know how Marcus came to the conclusion that lying to his brother was the best option. Misguided good intentions – and perhaps guilt had a little something to do with it.

Marcus was only 18 when he told the lie, Only if he hadn’t waited decades to spill the truth. This should be interesting.

Tell Me Who I Am Release Dates: October 18th, 2019 (US)…

New Fantasy / comedy Dolittle stars Robert Downey Jr, Tom Holland, Michael Sheen and Marion Cotillard in a retelling of the Doctor little story.

A Stephen Gaghan directed tale about a physician who discovers that he can talk to animals and based on a character created by Hugh Lofting…

The animals and Downey Jr’s talents are why I’m interested – and naturally, I’ll of course be comparing this to the 1998 version starring Eddie Murphy.

Antonio Banderas, Kumail Nanjiani, Emma Thompson, Ralph Fiennes, Jessie Buckley, Selena Gomez, Rami Malek, Octavia Spencer, and John Cena also star.

Dolittle Release Dates: January 17th, 2020 (US); February 7th, 2020 (UK)…
