THE LOBSTER (2015): Trailer Of The Week

Colin Farrell’s latest…

Delightfully nuts seems like the perfect phrase. I can’t wait to see how things turn out for Farrell’s character. Though, perhaps the title of the movie may have given it away.

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, the rest of the cast includes Olivia Coleman, Rachel Weisz, John C. Reilly, Ashley Jensen, Lea Seydoux and Ben Whishaw.

Personally, I’d want to be a Snow Leopard. You?

Release Dates: October 16th 2015 (US & UK)

Happy The Lobster 🙂

THE 5TH WAVE (2016): New Trailer Starring Chloe Grace Moretz & Liev Schreiber

Apocalyptic films are here to stay people! Here comes one more starring Chloe Grace Moretz…

The 5th Wave is intriguing, though I love Moretz best in the original Kick-Ass (2010) movie. I found her performance just so, so in If I Stay (2014). My fingers are crossed that The 5th Wave surprises me most pleasantly.

Live Schreiber, Maika Monroe, Ron Livingston, Maria Bello and Nick Robinson also star.

Release Dates: January 15th 2016 (U.S.), January 22nd 2016 ((U.K.)

Happy The 5th Wave 🙂

Naturally, after a good trailer trailer comes  an even better…

It’s about time Ryan Reynolds caught a real break. Looks like I’ll be  able to add Deadpool to my list of favourite Reynolds comedy films. So far that list consists of The Voices (2014) and sitcom Two Guys, A Girl & A Pizza Place.

Directed by Tim Miller, the rest of the supporting cast includes Gina Carano, brianna Hildbrand, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Morena Baccarin and Rachel Sheen to name jus a few.

Deadpool Release Date (s): February 10th, 2016 (UK), February 12th, 2016 (US)…

DEADPOOL (2016): Before The Trailer, First, The Trailer Trailer

Film and comic book fans have been going crazy over the recent Deadpool trailer trailer. And no. That’s not a typo. The makers of the film have indeed released an actual trailer, for the trailer…

If like myself you’re a non-reader of comic books or just unfamiliar with the Deadpool story but want to make sense of what you’ve just seen, here’s what wikipedia had to say about this Marvel Comics / X-Force / X-Men Origins character:

‘Deadpool is a disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary with the superhuman ability of an accelerated healing factor. He is known as the “Merc with a Mouth” because of his talkative nature and tendency to break the fourth wall, which is used by writers to humorous effect.’

Based on what I’ve watched of the films star, Ryan Reynolds in terms of other works, he seems well cast as the lead. Particularly regarding his comic abilities.

Deadpool Release Date (s): February 10th, 2016 (UK), February 12th, 2016 (US)…

MAZE RUNNER – THE SCORCH TRIALS (2015): Great New Trailer

I found the first instalment in the Maze Runner series ok. The best parts being a few well executed tense and edge of your seat moments.

With trailer 2, things are looking even more exciting…

May the film be at least half as thrilling as this trailer.

Happy Maze Runner, The Scorch Trials 🙂

THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 2 (2015): A Full Trailer Has Landed

Trailer 1 of The Hunger Games, Mocking Jay Part 2 arrives and it’s clear that the makers had the word ‘epic.’ in mind. Huge fans of the franchise will be overjoyed and might even scream. I’m not the biggest fan so I didn’t, but I do understand.

Happy The Hunger Games, Mockingjay, Part 2 🙂

THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 2 (2015): A Second Teaser Trailer

After last month’s release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 teaser trailer, I thought we’d see approximately 2 more trailers before the November release date. Not so, because here comes, yes, another teaser.

No one is going to blame you if the following thoughts went through your head as you watched.

  1. Whose music video is this? 
  2. Really? Another teaser?
  3. Ok. I want that red suit!
  4. Is white really the best colour for combat gear?

Before deciding to patiently (not so patiently) wait for November, you first need to stop imagining the people in white performing a very impressive street dance routine and Katniss Everdeen lip synching lyrics that include the words, ‘red’, ‘white’ and ‘unite’.

Good luck with that.

Happy The Hunger Games, Mockingjay, Part 2 🙂

FANTASTIC FOUR (2015): May The Movie Live Up To Its Name

How did I not feature the Fantastic Four trailer sooner? Slight super hero movie fatigue perhaps…

Whatever the answer, I’m doing it now because it is rather well done. My favourite moment being when Reed Richards/ Mr. Fantastic looks up and down to his right. Isn’t slow motion a beautiful thing?

With some of the most talented Actors of young Hollywood, Fantastic Four is an interesting super hero movie about – you guessed it, saving humanity. This new reboot is directed by Josh Trank and stars Miles Teller, Michael B Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell.

Trailer 1…

Final Trailer…

I’ll be ready come the August (2015) release date.

Happy Fantastic Four 🙂
