THE PIRATES OF SOMALIA (2017): New Trailer Starring Evan Peters, Al Pacino, Barkhad Abdi…

The Pirates Of Somalia is based on the true story of rookie journalist Jay Bahadur’s time with Somali pirates. Bahadur spent time with the pirates for the purpose of providing the first close-up look into who they are, the way they live and the forces that drive them. Directed by Bryan Buckley; Evan Peters, Al Pacino and Barkhad Abdi star..

This could be interesting. Though, at the same time this trailer could have done a better job of selling the movie. I’m not in love with the way it ends. On a separate note, it’s good to see Abdi of Captain Philips (2013) playing a non-pirate role, as far as I can tell.

Melanie Griffith and Russell Posner also star.

The Pirates Of Somalia Release Dates: December 8th, 2017 (US)…

Directed by Steven Spielberg and inspired by true events, The Post tells the story of  the cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents and pushed the country’s first female newspaper publisher (Meryl Streep) and a hard-driving editor (Tom Hanks) to begin a journalistic battle against the government…

I didn’t realise I missed Meryl Streep so much until I saw her turn around in this trailer. I’m of course going to be watching because of her and Hanks. It’s also going to be an experience to watch all the sexist nonsense that will be directed at her character, Kay Graham.

Sarah Paulson, Carrie Coon, Bradley Whitford, Bob Odenkirk, Matthew Rhys, Zach Woods and David Cross also star.

The Post Release Dates: January 12th, 2018 (US), January 19th, 2018 (UK)…

WINCHESTER – THE HOUSE THAT GHOSTS BUILT (2018): New Trailer From Jason Clarke, Helen Mirren, Sarah Snook…

In Winchester – The House That Ghosts Built Helen Mirren is an eccentric firearm heiress who believes that she’s being haunted by the souls of people killed by the Winchester repeating rifle. Jason Clarke and Sarah Snook also star while Peter and Michael Spierig write / direct…

For some reason it crossed my mind after watching this trailer that there maybe an interesting twist in this story. I’m interested because it’s Helen Mirren and I’m hoping that the horrors are more like those in Crimson Peak (2015) rather than something that will induce nightmares for me.

Winchester – The House That Ghosts Built Release Dates: February 2nd, 2018 (US); March 2nd, 2018 (UK)…

I, Tonya is the true story of competitive ice skater Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie), a skater who rose amongst the ranks at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Unfortunately for her, things change drastically when her ex-husband intervenes. Directed by Craig Gillespie, Bobby Cannavale, Sebastian Stan and Mckenna Grace also star…

I’m watching because it looks like this movie really allowed Robbie to act her socks off – so to speak and I personally can’t ‘wait to see how that unfolds. I’m also curious about the scary truth of this story.

Additional supporting cast includes Joey Thurmond, Bojana Novakovic, Allison Janney and Julianne Nicholson.

Directed by Kevin Connolly, John Travolta is the star of Gotti; the story of crime boss John Gotti and his son…

I want to see John Travolta do a good job. That’s my main reason for watching; that and my general curiosity about Gotti family story.

Gaga – Five Foot Two is a new documentary about pop provocateur Lady Gaga. Directed by Chris Moukarbel, the film takes us behind the scenes as the pop sensation releases a bold new album and prepares for her Super Bowl halftime show…

I’m watching this one to find out what Gaga has been up to since her second album. I kind of lost track of her after then. therefore, I don’t even know which Super Bowl halftime show the above synopsis is referring to.

Bharat Nalluri directs Dan Stevens, Christopher Plummer, Jonathan Pryce and  Simon Callow in a movie about the journey that lead to the creation of one of Charles Dickens’ most classic characters. The movie is The Man Who Invented Christmas and the character? Ebenezer Scrooge from A Christmas Carol…

With a title like The Man Who Invented Christmas, how can I not be curious enough to see this, especially considering what a big deal Christmas is these days. I’m of course not really referring to the religious aspect.

The Man Who Invented Christmas Release Dates: November 22nd, 2017 (US); December 1st, 2017 (UK)…
