HANGMAN (2017): New Trailer From Al Pacino, Karl Urban, Brittany Snow…

Al Pacino, Karl Urban and Brittany Snow are the stars of Hangman, a Johnny Martin directed thriller about a homicide detective and a criminal profiler on the hunt for a serial killer…

Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman’s Se7en (1995) has me believing that in every serial killer movie, a member of the investigative team is going to die, or at the very least be targeted by the serial killer. I’m tuning in because of Pacino and the story. I actually haven’t watched a good serial killer drama since the earlier seasons of The Mentalist. I live in hope.

In 24 Hours To Live, Ethan Hawke is an assassin seeking redemption after being given a second chance at life. Directed by Brian Smrz, Rutger Hauer and Paul Anderson also star…

I enjoy a great assassin movie. However, I don’t know how good this is going to be but I want to find out because Mr. Hawke usually makes good choices.

SWEET VIRGINIA (2017): New Trailer From Jon Bernthal, Imogen Poots, Christopher Abbott…

Sweet Virginia is the story of a former rodeo champ who befriends a man with violent tendencies. Directed by Jamie M. Dagg; Jon Bernthal, Imogen Poots and Christopher Abbott star…

I’m in because of this trailer’s intriguingly dark quality. I’ve also encountered Bernthal’s face in quite a few trailer thumbnails recently and I just want to to see something else great that he’s in so I can stop thinking of him as the character he plays in The Wolf Of Wall Street (2013) and We Are Your Friends (2015). My senses also tell me that there’s a potentially great face-off coming between Bernthal and Abbott’s characters.

Sweet Virginia Release Dates: November 17th, 2017 (US)…

THOROUGHBREDS (2018): New Trailer From Anton Yelchin, Olivia Cooke, Anya Taylor-Joy…

Starring Anton Yelchin, Olivia Cooke and Anya Taylor-Joy, Thoroughbreds is the Cory Finley written / directed thriller about two upper-class teenage girls in suburban Connecticut. The girls rekindle their unlikely friendship after years apart, so they can hatch a plan to solve both their problems-no matter the cost…

The plot for this movie reminds me a small amount of Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring (2013), a movie I did not like so much. Something tells me though, that this will be better. I’ll be watching because this trailer has promise and because I believe this to be the final movie starring the talented but unfortunately late Anton Yelchin.

Thoroughbreds Release Dates: March 9th, 2018 (US & UK)…

Francesca Eastwood, Clifton Collins Jr., Michael Welch and Leah McKendrick star in M.F.A, a new Natalia Leite directed vigilante thriller about an art student who gets creative inspiration after the accidental slaughter of her rapist…

This one could be good. I want to see it partly out of curiosity about the acting talents of Clint Eastwood’s daughter. There’s also the story and the unfortunate truth of the last piece of dialogue in this trailer.

MAZE RUNNER – THE DEATH CURE (2018): New Trailer From Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Walton Goggins, Nathalie Emmanuel…

Director Wes Ball is back with stars Dylan O’Brien and Kaya Scodelario in Maze Runner – The Death Cure. In this third instalment, young Thomas is determined to find a cure to a deadly disease called the “Flare”.

Why will I watch this, you may wonder. Well, the truth is I feel as though I began so I must finish. Not that I’m this committed with all films – let alone franchises that I start watching. There’s also the horrible on-set accident that nearly ended Mr. O’Brien. I kind of want to watch and remember how close it came to him not being here, whilst being very glad that he is. He is a young man in his prime after all. A worse end than what’s transpired would have been awful.

Nathalie Emmanuel and Walton Goggins also star.

Maze Runner – The Death Cure Release Dates: January 26th, 2018 (US); February 9th, 2018 (UK)…

In All I See Is You, Blake Lively is a blind woman whose relationship with her husband changes when she regains her sight and discovers disturbing details about themselves. Directed by Marc Forster; Jason Clarke, Yvonne Strahovski and Danny Huston also star…

This looks like it could be Lively’s darkest role yet and that’s a prospect too intriguing for me to ignore. I also just want to know the nature of the ‘disturbing details’ discovered.

In the Francis Lawrence directed Red Sparrow which stars Jennifer Lawrence, Matthias Schoenaerts, Joel Edgerton and Jeremy Irons, a Russian spy falls for a CIA officer and considers becoming a double agent…

I’m in because the cast is great. I also want to see how it  all unfolds since the story is already being compared to that of Angelina Jolie’s Salt (2010) as well as Marvel’s Black Widow.

Joely Richardson, Ciarán Hinds, Charlotte Rampling and Mary-Louise Parker also star.

Red Sparrow Release Dates: March 2nd, 2018, (US & UK); March 1st, 2018 (GER)…
