STEVE JOBS (2015): Time For The Michael Fassbender Interpretation

Two of my favourite UK Actors, Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet star in the story of Apple cofounder, Steve Jobs.

Like many, I’m already very aware of the story of the celebrated visionary, but of course I’ll watch the film, if only just take in the artistry of the Actors, the magic of dialogue king/ screen writer, Aaron Sorkin and Director Danny Boyle.

Another highlight is the appearance of one of my favourite funny men, Seth Rogen in another serious role, this time as the other half of the Apple founding team, Steve Wozniak.

Now? The trailer…

Release Date (s): October 23rd (US), November 13th (UK).

Happy Steve Jobs 🙂

LONDON HAS FALLEN (2016): Gerard Butler & Aaron Eckhart Return To Save The Day

As unsettling as the idea behind London Has Fallen (2016) may be, the new movie directed by Babak Najafi and starring Gerard ButlerMorgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart and Charlotte Riley looks like it’s going to be quite the spectacle.

The imagery of London actually falling is certainly horrific, but I still couldn’t help yelping with joy at the excellent execution of this teaser trailer…

Talk about haunting trailer music…

Trailer 1…

I guess it’s time to plan the viewing of the first instalment, Olympus Has Fallen (2013). Probably.

Happy Film Loving 🙂

CREED (2015): New Trailer For Michael B. jordan & Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky Spin-Off

I’m guessing that Rocky (1976) fans will be very excited right about now. The trailer for Creed (2015), the seventh Rocky film and spin-off from the Rocky film series just arrived and ‘promising’ is the word.

Starring Sylvester Stallone as former World Heavyweight Champion, Rocky Balboa, Creed sees Balboa serve as trainer and mentor to young boxer, Adonis Creed played by rising star, Michael B. Jordan.

Fans of the Rocky films will know that Adonis Creed is the son of the late Apollo Creed, a friend to Balboa as well as a former rival – all of which makes for an interesting dynamic between the two main characters.

I’m confessing to having never seen any of the Rocky movies. Yes, shock horror. However I am contemplating finally changing that fact just in time to watch this new release and also to keep FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) at bay.

Happy Creed 🙂

SECRET IN THEIR EYES (2015): A Good Thriller Is On the Way, Friends. It’s On The Way

The new Billy Ray directed mystery/ thriller starring Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor finally has a trailer and it looks rather good, I must say.

Two of the three lead Actors have an Oscar statue at home and the third is Oscar nominated so you know it’s going to be emotional.

The trailer is intense and best enjoyed without knowing too much about the film beforehand. So…

Can’t wait to see Julia Roberts being badass.

Happy Secret In Their Eyes 🙂

BALLET 422 (2014): For Aspiring Ballet Dancers & Choreographers

Directed by Jody Lee Lipes, Ballet 422 offers an inside look, from first rehearsal through to world premier as it follows emerging young choreographer, Justin Peck and his dancers, as they prepare for a very important production at the prestigious New York City Ballet.

With just two months to pull everything together, you’ll certainly get the sense of urgency and the apparent stress involved with such a feat, especially for Peck.

Ballet 422 is ideal for dancers but more so for those curious about what it might be like to be in a situation similar to Peck’s, even though interestingly, he’s never actually interviewed.

I’m no expert in this particular art form, of course, but seeing the finished production at the end didn’t leave me more interested in being a spectator of ballet. At least not as much as the following…

Happy Ballet 422 🙂

TIG (2015): Always Find The Humor

Netflix has a new documentary about celebrated U.S. Comedian, Tig Notaro. Tig tells the story of what is arguably the most challenging period of Notaro’s life and how she made it through, thanks to the healing power of comedy.

I do rather love Comedians. I also love documentaries about inspiring people. So something tells me that  at the very least, this one is going to be interesting.

Happy Tig 🙂

HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 2 (2015): For Cuteness and Laughter

The second instalment of Hotel Transylvania 2, written by and starring Adam Sandler looks like plenty of fun. I love that the ‘little monster’ is reminiscent of the completely adorable and mischievous triplets from Disney’s Brave (2012).

I actually haven’t seen the original, so now I know what I’m doing this Sunday.

Happy Hotel Transylvania 2 🙂

MISTRESS AMERICA (2015): New Comedy From Noah Baumbach Starring Greta Gerwig

I haven’t watched Greta Gerwig in a film since 2010’s Greenberg with Ben Stiller. Looking at the trailer for Gerwig’s new comedy, Mistress America, I really have no excuse not to. I’m sold on her character’s refreshingly interesting and adventurous character.

I’m ready for  the kooky.

Happy Mistress America 🙂
