AMERICAN ASSASSIN (2017): New Trailer From Dylan O’Brien, Sanaa Lathan, Scott Adkins, Michael Keaton…

American Assassin stars Dylan O’Brien, Sanaa Lathan, Michael Keaton and Taylor Kitsch. Directed by Michael Cuesta, the story centres on counterterrorism agent Mitch Rapp (O’Brien)…

There’s a hint of good ‘gunplay’ in this trailer; something I do rather enjoy in movies. Nevertheless though, the most this American Assassin trailer has done for me is make me want to re-watch Skyfall (2012). I don’t know if the story just doesn’t seem fresh and new enough or perhaps Daniel Craig’s James Bond just has too big a piece of my heart.

Scott Adkins, Taylor Kitsch and David Suchet also star.

American Assassin Release Dates: September 15th, 2017 (US & UK)…

Oscar winning director Kathryn Bigelow’s latest movie is all about the 1967 police raid in Detroit, USA that lead to one of the largest citizen uprisings in the history of the United States. John Boyega, Will Poulter, John Krasinski Anthony Mackie and Jack Reynor star…

This is definitely in my list of best trailers of 2017. Boyega and Poulter’s accents sound great – according to my non-American ears. I look forward to the seriously tense scenes that are surely coming my way.

Tyler James Williams, Kaitlyn Dever and Hannah Murray also star.

Jason Tobin, Byron Mann and Sarah Lian are the stars of Jasmine, Dax Phelan written and directed thriller about a once-successful Hong Kong businessman who’s still reeling from his wife’s murder. After losing his job, friends, and all he used to know, he becomes obsessed with a mysterious stranger he sees at his wife’s grave…

As I watched this trailer, my mind went to, ‘I sure hope he’s not the one who killed his wife’. Either way, may the execution of this story please be great.

In Black Butterfly Antonio Banderas plays Paul, a down-on-his-luck screenwriter who picks up a drifter (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) and offers him a place to stay. Soon enough just how bad an idea that was becomes abundantly clear…

Black Butterfly is a remake of the French thriller, Papillon Noir by Herve Korian; a version that starred ex-footballer Eric Cantona. May this Brian Goodman directed version please be worthy.

Piper Perabo, Nathalie Rapti Gomez and Timothy Martin also star.

Black Butterfly Release Dates: 20017 (US)…

SMALL CRIMES (2017): New Trailer From Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gary Cole, Macon Blair…

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Gary Cole and Macon Blair’s new E.L. Katz directed movie Small Crimes is all about a  disgraced former cop who just got out of jail. He  returns home looking for redemption but things don’t quite go according to plan…

I’m actually not that sure about this trailer. But I am a fan of  ‘that one from Game Of Thrones‘ (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Gary Cole. The latter whose work I’ve enjoyed in many of my favourite comedy / drama films and TV shows. To name just a few, Pineapple Express (2008), VEEP (2012) and The Good Wife (2009).

VOICE FROM THE STONE (2017): New Trailer Starring Emilia Clarke, Marton Csokas, Caterina Murino…

In Voice From The Stone, Emilia Clarke plays a solemn nurse whose task it is to aid a young boy who hasn’t spoken since his mother passed suddenly. Also starring Marton Csokas and Caterina Murino, this Eric D. Howell directed thriller is set in 1950s Tuscany…

 

If I were in the mood to be completely ridiculous, I’d say that Emilia Clarke has been ‘typecast’ because this is the second film where she’s been ‘brought in to help an unwell young man recover’. The first film of course being 2016’s romantic movie, Me Before You. The real truth is, I’m far too wise and therefore know only too well that twice does not a typecast actor make.

Watching Voice From The Stone shouldn’t be difficult for me because it’s not exactly a horror film. Also, I love Italy and I’m far too young to know what Tuscany was like in the 1950s but I want to know, so…

Starring Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lilly James, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx and directed by Edgar Wright, Baby Driver is the new action / crime / thriller about a young getaway driver who has been coerced into taking part in a heist job that’s doomed to fail….

What a great role for Elgort to land. I want to see this simply because it looks good. Jon Berthal, Eiza González, Flea and Sky Ferreira also star.

Baby Driver Release Dates:  August 11th, 2017 (US); August 16th, 2017 (UK); August 31st, 2017 (GER)…

ATOMIC BLONDE (2017): New Trailer Starring Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman, Sofia Boutella…

Starring Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman, Sofia Boutella and directed by David Leitch, Atomic Blonde is all about an undercover MI6 agent who is sent to Berlin during the Cold War. The mission is to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and recover a missing list of double agents…

I like how the plot for this movie reads. It somehow brings to mind ideas of a female James Bond character. How exciting! As a big ‘Lady Theron’ fan, I very much look forward to watching her administer a tonne of serious ass-kicking. Ass kicking so good that this trailer already has me desperate to place Atomic Blonde next to Casino Royale (2006) in my list of  favourite action thrillers. Well done, trailer maker!

Atomic Blonde Release Dates: July 28th, 2017 (US), August 11th, 2017 (UK)…
