The Accountant is Ben Affleck’s new movie and good is how the trailer looks…

I’ve seen, loved and re-watched Good Will Hunting (1997) quite a few times, so as I watched this trailer, I couldn’t help but think, ‘and now… Affleck gets to play the ‘mathematical genius’. Sort of.

Anna Kendrick, John Lithgow, Jon Bernthal and J.K. Simmons also star.

The Accountant Release dates: October 14th, 2016 (US); October 20th, 2016 (GER); November 4th, 2016 (UK)

From the writer known for Sicario (2015) and Sons Of Anarchy comes Hell Or High Water, a new movie with Chris Pine and Ben Foster as two very desperate brothers in West texas…

I’ve probably seen enough bank robbery movies for this life time.So it’s the relationship between the two brothers and the catalyst(s) that lead to their desperate situations that intrigues me most.

Directed by David Mackenzie; Jeff Bridges, Dale Dickey and Katy Mixon also star.

Hell Or High Water Release Dates: Aug 12th, 2016 (US)…

Today’s trailer is for Assassin’s Creed and it’s exciting, particularly for fans of the computer game. I’m very happy because the trailer looks great and the movie’s stars are Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard…

Trailer 1

Trailer 2

Though I’ve never played the game,  I’m aware of it because it’s popular and I love the artwork,  including Aguilar’s costume. This may or may not mean that I have a crush on a computer game character…

The director is Justin Kurzel who has also worked with Fassbender and Cotillard in the visually stunning Macbeth (2015)

Brendan Gleeson, Brian Gleeson and Jeremy Irons also star.

CRIMSON PEAK (2015): Style, Story & Cinematography…

Crimson Peak (2015), Tom Hiddleston

The first thing I noticed and immediately loved about Crimson Peak is the cinematography. Particularly the rich colours, beautiful period fashion and the use of light and shadow.

Directed and co-written by Guillermo del Toro, Crimson Peak is a visual feast of a gothic romance. One that features a gifted author, Edith (Mia Wasikowska) who is a young lady faced with the choice between two potential suiters.

One of Edith’s suiters is her childhood friend Alan, (Charlie Hunnam) and the other is a dark, mysterious and mesmerising newcomer called  Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston).

I’d like to think that faced with Edith’s predicament I might be wise enough to make the ‘healthiest’ choice. But considering how much I find myself mesmerised by Hiddleston’s character’s voice, words and presence, I’m thinking absolutely not.

A feast for the eyeballs is  one way to describe Guillermo del Toro’s movie. I also like the  beautiful romance which just happens to be a great reminder for how truly blinding love can be.

It crossed my mind that perhaps some of the ghostly special effects could have done with a little extra financial investment. But overall, I like Crimson Peak.

Lastly,  what a wonderfully meaty role Jessica Chastain was blessed to play.

Watch it for the story, romance, and visual beauty. As you do that, I’ll I continue dreaming about having full access to the beautiful contents of Edith’s wardrobe.

QUEEN OF KATWE (2016): New Trailer From Lupita N’Yongo & David Oyelowo

Starring Lupita N’Yongo, David Oyelowo and Madina Nalwanga, Queen of Katwe is the true story of Phiona Mutesi, a Ugandan chess player and one of the first titled female players in Ugandan chess history…

I love stories about people doing extraordinary things, whatever their age. It’s even better if the achievement is greater than what most people believe to be possible. For that would be reminder to never let another person dictate what is possible for you or anyone else who dares to have a dream. I know very little about chess and chess has a small amount to do with the reason I’ll be tuning in.

Ntaire Guma Mbaho Mwine and Russel Savadier also star with Mira Nair as director.

Queen Of Katwe Release Dates: Sep 23rd, 2016 (US & BR)…

TICKLED (2016): New Trailer For David Farrier Documentary About A Mysterious Tickling Competition

Today’s trailer is for Tickled, a documentary from David Farrier about a thoroughly bizarre and mysterious ticking completion…

This particular tickling competition story seems like one of those that a person may be perfectly happy to never, ever learn about. But then a documentary gets made and you rationalise that in this instance, it’s probably better to be informed. you know, because you’re a person who seeks to understand.

Tickled Release Dates: May 26th, 2016 (NZ); Jun 17th, 2016 (US)…

PATHS OF THE SOUL (2015): New Documentary About The Tibetan People From Yang Zhang

Today’s Trailer is a very intriguing one. Paths Of The Soul is a new documentary from director Yang Zhang about the Tibetan people…

I’m Curious about Paths Of The Soul because as is the case for most people who first see the trailer, what happens in it looks peculiar to say the least. What you’re actually watching is Tibetans on a pilgrimage to Lasa, the holy capital of Tibet. I

To put it another way, what you see in the trailer absolutely is not a lazy man’s version of the classic and very much hated, full body conditioning and cardiovascular exercise, the burpee.

I can take a few guesses but I do want to find out more about what’s really going on and other details.

Paths Of The Soul Release Dates

Happy Film Loving 🙂
