A new trailer arrives for a movie about the movie business in the 1940s…
Directed by Jay Roach; Bryan Cranston, Helen Mirren, Louis C.K., Diane Lane and John Goodman are all great reasons to watch. Other reasons include all the beautiful words / dialogue, including the following…
‘Nobody has the right to tell you how to write, act, pray, speak, vote, protest, love work, create, talk, live or think‘
Happy Trumbo 🙂
Release dates 6th November 2015 (U.S.), 22nd January 2016 (U.K.)
When I saw the trailer for Unbroken in 2014, I became very excited; first because I love Angelina Jolie. Second because Jack O’Connell is one of my recent favourite Actors (he was brilliant in Starred Up (20013) and lastly, the Louis Zamperini story.
Directed by Jolie and with British O’Connell in the starring role, Unbroken is the story of a man (Zamperini) who overcame one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after another.
Zamperini’s story of physical and mental endurance began well before the near fatal plane crash in WW2 that changed the course of his life.
It is in fact the very vital relationship he had with his family, namely his big brother, Pete, that really helped prepare him for every extraordinary thing he was able to accomplish in the years that followed.
That goodness for the people who add immeasurable value in the way they encourage and believe in our capabilities, especially when we don’t.
The screenplay was penned by the Cohen brothers, Joel and Ethan, so clearly the film had everything going for it from writers, cast, crew and beyond.
The performances that stick in my mind come from O’Connell, of corse and Miyavi who plays the character of Sergeant Watanabe. Garrett Hedlund, Domhnall Gleeson and Jai Courtney also do a great job
If you haven’t already watched Unbroken, know that it’s a brilliant story of extraordinary strength of the human spirit. One that is so well told that you’ll be glad you had the chance to learn about Mr Zamperini.
As if I needed more reasons to love Angelina Jolie!
Based on the work of real life social psychologist Stanley Milgram, Experimenter focuses on the 1961 radical behavior experiments that Milgram carried out, in order to test the ordinary person’s willingness to obey authority.
With Peter Sarsgaard, John Leguizamo, Winona Ryder and Anton Yelchin as the leading cast, I’m excited to see how this intriguing true story plays out.
This third version is so well put together that you’re not going to be happy when it’s over. Sounds like an odd thing to say… until you realise that it’s only July and the release date is in two to three months time.
Impatiently goes the wait to witness the extraordinary transformation of Mr Hardy, great British humour and that good, good music.
‘Find people you like working with and work with them whenever possible’.
These are words that probably came out of acclaimed Director David O. Russell’s mouth at some point, for here comes another movie starring his two favourite Actors, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. Add Robert De Niro and you’ve got the cast of Silver Linings Playbook (2012)
Joy is the story of a family across four generations and the woman that rises to become founder and matriarch of a powerful family business dynasty.
Based on the trailer, it definitely looks filled with trying times for the family but I’m looking forward to seeing Jennifer Lawrence’s character make sweet, sweet lemonade out of it all.
Two of my favourite UK Actors, Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet star in the story of Apple cofounder, Steve Jobs.
Like many, I’m already very aware of the story of the celebrated visionary, but of course I’ll watch the film, if only just take in the artistry of the Actors, the magic of dialogue king/ screen writer, Aaron Sorkin and Director Danny Boyle.
Another highlight is the appearance of one of my favourite funny men, Seth Rogen in another serious role, this time as the other half of the Apple founding team, Steve Wozniak.
Now? The trailer…
Release Date (s): October 23rd (US), November 13th (UK).
Stevan Riley has directed Listen To Me Marlon, a new documentary about Marlon Brando – and the trailer looks fantastic.
Amongst other great roles, Brando is the man responsible for doing an exceptional job of bringing author Mario Puzo’s character of The Godfather to life in the Francis Ford Coppola directed 1972 classic of the same name.
I know that Listen To Me Marlon is going to be great, especially for lovers of documentary film / biographies, fans of very talented actors, those curious about the human condition and of course, the brilliance of Brando himself and his works.
I really can’t wait to see this and congratulations to the person responsible for this trailer, for it is just excellent!
The trailer is out for The Walk, the new Robert Zemeckis directed film based on French High-Wire artist Philippe Petit.
The international cast is led by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and includes Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon, James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz...
What appears to lie ahead is an exciting risk taking adventure. Though I’m not quite sure yet whether I’ll be able to completely suspend my disbelief when it comes to the French accent.
Still, somehow the story of a man who chooses to walk on a wire from great heights and without any safety precautions is probably interesting enough to convince me. That is of course unless I opt for the 2008 documentary, Man on Wire instead.
