Following the ‘Special Look’ Aladdin trailer released just over a month ago, we now have the official trailer with plenty more story and the characters played by Will Smith Naomi Scott, Mena Massoud, Billy Magnussen…

I’ll be honest, I’m happy to report that Smith is definitely looking less and less like a casting error. Who knew… besides the film makers, that is?

Up until 1:47 minutes into this new trailer, I’d completely forgotten that Aladdin is actually a musical. I guess now I’m most looking forward to the visuals and the parts without singing. That’s unless this movie somehow manages to revert my lifelong aversion to musicals. You never know…

Kamil Lemieszewski, Numan Acar, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban and Nasim Pedrad also star.

Aladdin Release Dates: May 24th, 2019 (US & UK)…

Director Simon Kinberg’s X-Men – Dark Phoenix has a good looking new trailer.

Starring Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and Sophie Turner, X-Men – Dark Phoenix is all about their team member Jean Grey’s new incredible corrupting powers and how the rest of the X-Men deal with it…

I’m in to enjoy the stunning visual effects and find out if Jean Grey will fully embrace her dark side. Before doing all that though, I’m a tad behind so I just need to watch all the movies after X-Men First Class (2011).

Evan Peters, Alexandra Shipp, Ato Essandoh, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Summer Fontana also star.

X-Men Dark Phoenix Release Dates: June 7th, 2019 (UK & US)…

THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE (2019): New Trailer From Adam Driver, Jonathan Pryce, Olga Kurylenko, Stellan Skarsgård…

Directed by Terry Gilliam, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is an adventure / comedy / drama starring Adam Driver, Jonathan Pryce, Olga Kurylenko and Stellan Skarsgård.

At the centre of the story is Toby (Driver), a disillusioned advertising executive who’s pulled into a world of time jumping fantasy when he’s mistaken someone else. Gradually Toby becomes unable to tell dreams from reality…

I’d say that peculiar is the right word for this trailer. I’m interested because of the hints of humour, the cast and because I want to find out whether by the end, I’ll actually want Don Quixote killed. Perhaps I’ll find him charming.

Joana Ribeiro, Jorge Calvo, Bruno Sevilla and Jordi Mollà also star.

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote Release Dates: April 10th, 2019 (US)…

I actually think I’d forgotten how much I appreciated the animation style of the first Frozen movie. The adventure / story will be engaging, no doubt but these visuals, I’m quite excited about.

Starring Will Smith, Naomi Scott, Mena Massoud and Billy Magnussen, finally, the new Aladdin trailer shows us what will smith will look and sound like as the famous genie…

Overall, I like this trailer and my favourite moment in it is the sight of Naomi Scott as Jasmine. What I can’t deny though is my immediate reaction after seeing Smith as the the genie. An undeniable sense that a massive miscasting may have taken place definitely came over me. However, I’ve decided to ignore that feeling and wait to see how the film actually is.

I of course wish that my reaction was undoubtedly positive and filled with excitement – both for the entirety of the trailer and afterwards. Nevertheless, who knows, perhaps I’ll look back and wonder what I was worried about in the first place, once I’m watching director Guy Ritchie’s movie. He is the man behind my favourite British film of all time after all… Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels (1998).
