Directed and co-written by  Antonio Campos, The Devil All The Time is a new drama/thriller starring Tom Holland, Robert Pattinson, Sebastian Stan and Bill Skarsgård.

Set in the 1960s after World War II in Southern Ohio; compelling, bizarre, and mentally disturbed people suffer from the war’s psychological damages.

I’m in for the incredibly creepy character played by Pattinson, the intriguing premise and the fact that this trailer looks very promising indeed.

Harry Melling, Haley Bennett, Riley Keogh, Eliza Scanlen, Mia Wasikowska, Jason Clarke, Douglas Hodge, and Abby Glover also star.

The Devil All The Time Release Dates: September 16th, 2020 (US & UK)…

In new Netflix series Away, Hilary Swank is an American astronaut struggling with leaving her husband and daughter behind to embark on a dangerous mission with an international space crew.

Created by Jessica Goldberg and Andrew Hinderaker; additional key cast includes Josh Charles, Talitha Eliana Bateman…

I’m mainly intrigued because it’s that talented Swank. I’m also look forward to breathtaking images of space and a story that will be emotional but hopefully not depressing.

Based on Iain Reid’s acclaimed novel, I’m Thinking of Ending Things is a new drama/horror/thriller about a young woman who comes to question everything she thought she knew about her new boyfriend, and herself. All upon arriving to her boyfriend’s parent’s secluded farm.

Directed and co-written by Charlie Kaufman, I’m Thinking of Ending Things stars Jessie Buckley, Toni Collette, David Thewlis and Jesse Plemons.

With parents that peculiar, maybe she should have trusted her gut much sooner! Actually, since I haven’t read the book on which this movie is based, it may well be that Buckley’s character is the most peculiar one,

The last Kaufman movie I saw was Anomalisa (2015). One of these days I’ll finally make time for what is perhaps his most popular movie, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004).

Colby Minifie, Jason Ralph, Abby Quinn, Guy Boyd, Ashlyn Alessi, Hadley Robinson, Teddy Coluca, Anthony Robert Grasso and Austin Ferris also star.

MADE IN ITALY (2020): The Thing ILiked…

As expected, the beautiful views of the Tuscan landscape is my favourite thing about Liam Neeson’s latest comedy Made in Italy It’s just unfortunate that I didn’t find much else to love in writer/director James D’Arcy’s story besides the views.

I should have been prepared for Made in Italyto be less funny and more focused on grief. Especially since the plot has Neeson playing a father, accompanied by his estranged son (Micheál Richardson) while on a trip to Italy to sell a house he inherited from his late wife.

I had certain hopes and expectations about how charming Made in Italy was going to be. Not only did I find the movie inadequately charming, I didn’t find it as funny as its comedy categorisation would suggest. Furthermore, Richardson’s character Jack’s emotional journey development felt oddly inauthentic and ill-timed in parts.

Things did get a bit better when Neeson’s character became emotional at around the one hour, ten-minute mark. However, by that point I’d largely given up on any hopes of D’Arcy’s film redeeming itself and suddenly becoming less annoyingly predictable, and charming enough for me to forgive it’s earlier shortcomings.

Watch Made in Italy only if you’re extremely curious.

Covering what really happened to one of the greatest entertainers of all time, and what his mind was fighting, Robin’s Wish is a new documentary about actor/comedian Robin Williams.

Directed by Tylor Norwood, we can expect an intimate portrait of Williams and his invulnerable spirit; featuring interviews with his widow Susan Schneider and many more.

I’d never heard of Lewy Body Dementia until this documentary. I’ll be watching as a Williams fan and to learn more about this awful disease.

Robin’s Wish Release Dates: September 1st, 2020 (US)…

GET DUKED! (2019): New Trailer Starring Eddie Izzard, Kate Dickie, James Cosmo, Viraj Juneja…

From writer/director Ninian Doff, Get duked! is a new hip-hop inspired comedy/horror film about four city boys on a wilderness trek as they try to escape a mysterious huntsman.

Key cast includes James Cosmo, Eddie Izzard, Kate Dickie, Viraj Juneja…

The comedy that results from the ‘fish out of water’ city boys having to survive in the much quieter countryside is what I’m looking forward to most. Especially since I’m not a country girl and I already love the line: ‘I’ve never witnessed a murder before, I’m home-schooled.’

I’m also a little curious about the hip hop angle.

Kevin Guthrie, Jonathan Aris, Alice Lowe, Samuel Bottomley, Rian Gordon, Lewis Gribben and Georgie Glen also star.

Get Duked! Release Dates: August 28th, 2020 (US)…

JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH (2021): Great New Trailer Starring Daniel Kaluuya, LaKeith Stanfield, Jesse Plemmons…

Judas and the Black Messiah tells the story of Fred Hampton, Chairman of the Illinois Black Panther Party, and his fateful betrayal by FBI informant William O’Neal.

Co directed by Ryan Coogler and Shaka King this very promising movie stars Daniel Kaluuya, LaKeith Stanfield and Jesse Plemons.

It’s official, this is my favourite week of movie trailer releases in 2020. First we had Ratched (2020) a couple of days ago and now this. I’ve already watched this trailer countless times and I cannot wait to see what looks like a superb performance from Kaluuya and Stanfield. Two brilliant actors I last saw together in Jordan Peele’s massive hit, Get Out (2017).

This is the kind of movie that I imagine will be really great to see in a movie theatre.

Martin Sheen, Ashton Sanders, Lil Rel Howery, Algee Smith, Jermaine Fowler, Robert Longstreet, Dominique Fishback, Nick Fink and Darrell Britt-Gibson also star.

Judas and The Black Messiah Release Dates: 2021, exact date to be confirmed.
