Scrambling to safety is the name of the game in new William Eubank directed action / thriller Underwater.

Starring Kristen Stewart, T.J. Miller and Vincent Cassel, the story centres around a group of underwater researchers trying to survive after an earthquake devastates their subterranean laboratory…

I’m in for the crazy underwater action footage.

I wonder if any claustrophobes can actually sit through this movie. I’m only kind of one, but not seriously.

Jessica Henwick, John Gallagher Jr., Mamoudou Athie and Gunner Wright also star.

From writer / director  Dan Krauss, in new based on a true story action / thriller The Kill Team, Nat Wolff is Andrew Briggman, a young American soldier in Afghanistan.

Andrew finds himself struggling with a moral dilemma as a result of his commanding officer’s (Alexander Skarsgård) behaviour…

What a nightmare situation; not being able to trust your own team whose job it is to have your back – and you’re thousands of miles from home.

I’m tuning in to see Wolff’s character hopefully make it out alive. I also can’t wait to see Skarsgård in his role. I don’t remember having seen him playing a villainous character before and I like it.

Adam Long, Jonathan Whitesell, Brian Marc, Osy Ikhile, Rob Morrow, Anna Francolini, Oliver Ritchie and Edd Campbell Bird also star.

The Kill Team Release Dates: October 25th, 2019 (US)…

POINT BLANK (2019): The Things I Liked…

Point Blank, a new Netflix thriller about an emergency room nurse who teams up with an injured murder suspect to save his pregnant wife isn’t a terrible film. Directed by Joe Lynch; starring Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo, I admit to having a little more fun while watching Point Blank than I expected to.

In addition to the overall execution of the story being adequate enough for me to watch through to the very end, a key highlight was the comic relief courtesy of Markice Moore’s unexpected character; a gangster boss who just happens to have movie making aspirations. Also, seeing Marcia Gay Harden in a role we don’t often see women play and her doing a great job proved memorable.

Lastly, the onscreen chemistry between Mackie and Grillo is OK. It’s certainly not as ‘sizzling’ as that between Michael Peña and Jake Gyllenhaal in End of Watch (2012); or Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg in 2013’s 2 Guns but those guys are really very special cases; I’m convinced of it.

Watch Point Blank if you’re curious.

Starring Betty Gilpin, Emma Roberts, Hilary Swank and Justin Hartley, the latest trailer for The Hunt, the story of twelve strangers chosen and kidnapped for the specific purpose of being hunted is here…

This intriguingly dark concept has me impatient to see the finished product. I mean, I don’t think that I’ve ever seen Swank look quite as terrifying as she does in the clip from which the above image was captured.

I say ‘bring on the entertaining madness’ because I think I’m ready. I think.

Amy Madigan, Macon Blair, Teri Wyble, Ike Barinholtz, Glenn Howerton, Alexander Babara, Steve Coulter, Wayne Duvall and Sturgill Simpson also star.

The Hunt Release Dates: September 27th, 2019 (US & UK)… (Release now postponed / cancelled by Universal Pictures)

Starring Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson, Bill Murray and Jesse Eisenberg, Zombieland – Double Tap continues the story of a group of four as they move to the American heartland and face off against evolved zombies, fellow survivors, and the growing pains of the snarky makeshift family.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer, Zombieland – Double Tap is a follow up to 2009’s Zombieland movie also directed by Fleischer…

I actually had no idea that a previous Zombieland movie existed until today and I generally don’t tend to gravitate towards zombie movies. However, this talented cast and the promise of humour does have my attention.

Luke Wilson, Rosario Dawson, Abigail Breslin, Dan Aykroyd, Avan Jogia, Thomas Middleditch and Rachel Luttrell also star.

Zombieland – Double Tap Release Dates: October 11th, 2019 (US); October 18th, 2019 (UK)…

TOP GUN – MAVERICK (2020): New Trailer From Tom Cruise, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Ed Harris…

Top Gun (1986), an action / drama about students at the United States Navy’s elite fighter weapons school – competing to be the best in the class finally has a sequel.

Directed by Joseph Kosinski, key cast includes Tom Cruise, Jennifer Connelly, John Hamm and Ed Harris…

Images of Cruise in aviators and a leather jacket while standing by by a plane. That’s really all I knew about Top Gun. It’s all I knew until I looked up the above original synopsis and as this trailer played, it occurred to me just how much fun Cruise must have making all his movies. He loves planes, motorcycles, speed… In fact, I’m almost certain that he’s not acting in the main picture on this post.

May you also have a passion or passions that makes you smile as broadly.

Glen Powell, Miles Teller, Val Kilmer, Jean Louisa Kelly, Lewis Pullman and Manny Jacinto also star.

Directed by Matthew Vaughn, The King’s Man is the third instalment of the Kingsman franchise…

I’ll be watching to see how it compares to the original and best, Kingsman – The Secret Service (2014). Also looking forward tto finding out who Taylor-Johnson is playing.

Harris Dickinson, Alexandra Maria Lara, Tom Hollander, Djimon Hounsou, Alison Steadman, Stanley Tucci, Rhys Ifans and Daniel Brühl also star.

Hilary swank, Emma Roberts and Justin Hartley’s new Craig Zobel directed movie, The Hunt is the story of twelve strangers. Strangers who wake up in a clearing but have no idea where they are or how they got there. The strangers certainly haven’t a clue that they’ve been chosen. Chosen for a specific purpose…

This looks to me like a case of paintball and deer, bison or other game just not cutting it anymore for hunting fans.

I’m looking forward to what the next trailer will reveal. We can probably expect quite a bit of horror.

Betty Gilpin, Ike Barinholtz, Glenn Howerton, Amy Madigan, Macon Blair, Teri Wyble, Alexander Babara, Steve Coulter, Wayne Duvall and Sturgill Simpson also star.
