From director Josie Rourke, Mary Queen Of Scots is a new historical drama about the relationship between Elizabeth I, Queen of England, and her cousin Mary Stuart.
Saoirse Ronan, Margot Robbie, Guy Pearce, Joe Alwyn and Gemma Chan star…
First of all, isn’t it special and interesting that two Australian actors have had the opportunity to play Elizabeth I on the big screen twenty years apart? Cate Blanchett’s performance in Elizabeth (1998) is still so powerful and fresh in my mind.
When I first saw Margot in this trailer, I wasn’t sure… but then as the trailer played some more, my faith increased. The real main reason I can’t wait to see this one is the brilliant Ronan. I just want to see her deliver all the great dialogue that wonderful way she knows how. I’ll also be marvelling at the visual spectacle of it all, of course.
Bring on the rivalry!
David Tennant, Brendan Coyle and Jack Lowden also star.
Director Yorgos Lanthimos’s (The Lobster, 2015) latest film is a period piece that stars Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Olivia Coleman, Nicholas Hoult and Joe Alwyn.
Set in early 18th century England, Lady Sarah – the close friend of a frail Queen Anne steps in to govern England. New servant Abigail arrives and her charm endears her to Sarah…
I’m in because the cast is great. I’m in to hear Emma Stone’s English accent and for the delightful madness that is characteristic of a Lanthimos movie. I’m also definitely in for the costume. Yes, definitely the costume!
Directed by Damien Chazelle (La La Land (2016), First Man is the story of the life of American astronaut Neil Armstrong
Starring Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy and Jason Clarke, we get to learn about Armstrong and the space mission that made him the first man to walk on the Moon on July 20th, 1969…
Hidden figures (2016) is still quite fresh in my mind; not to say that this is exactly the same story but I’m not quite excited about this movie just yet. I only really became enthused at the point when Foy’s character lost it. Still, I’m sure Gosling and Chazelle will do a good job.
Pablo Schreiber, Kyle Chandler, Ciarán Hinds, Ethan Embry, Jason Clarke and Corey Stoll alos star.
Operation Finale is the true story of the team of secret agents brought together to find Adolf Eichmann, the infamous Nazi architect of the Holocaust.
Set 15 years after World War II, Operation Finale is directed by Chris Weitz and stars Oscar Isaac, Ben Kingsley, Mélanie Laurent, Joe Alwyn…
I’m excited at the prospect of seeing Ben Kingsley in a movie that looks worthy of his talents. I also want the bad guy caught, of course.
As I watched this trailer, it occurred to me that so iconic is Christoph Waltz’s turn as Col. Hans Landa in Inglorious Basterds (2009), I will probably always think of him every time I see another actor in the Colonel uniform of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi army. I confess that I say this as someone who’s yet to watch Schindler’s list.
Nick Kroll, Lior Raz and Haley Lu Richardson also star.
In Guernesy, Lily James plays Juliet Ashton, a writer who forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey Island in the aftermath of World War II, and writes a book about their experience of the war.
Directed by Mike Newell; Michiel Huisman, Jessica Brown Findlay and Matthew Goode play the other key cast…
I’m interested to find out what happened to Elizabeth McKenna (Jessica Brown Findlay). The words ‘untimely and possibly gruesome death’ come to mind. However, it would be great to be surprised.
Glen Powell, Marek Oravec and Tom Courtenay also star
