You may be surprised to learn that in Amazon Video’s latest TV movie trailer, Giovanni Ribisi is playing an ex-felon.
My favourite of the characters Ribisi has played in the past all happen to be in comedies. There’s his portrayal of Frank Buffay Jr. – Phoebe’s younger brother in hit TV sitcom Friends. More recently you can watch him as the creepy moustachioed dad character in Seth MacFarlane’s Ted (2012)and as the somewhat dim-witted Edward in A Million Ways To Die In The West (2014), also from MacFarlane.
Sneaky Pete is directed by David Shore and features a supporting cast that includes Marin Ireland, Margo Martindale, Shane McRae and Bryan Cranston. It would be great to see Ribisi in a new light, so fingers crossed that we won’t want to forget that this particular role ever happened.
Idris Elba is terrifying in the tension filled trailer for his well titled new movie, Beasts of No Nation.
With Cary Fukunaga, a brilliant Director best known for television series True Detective directing, the combination of that withIdrisElba’s intensity and young Actor, Abraham Attah’s fresh talent makes for another promising film scheduled for 2015.
Written by Justin Theroux and directed by Ben Stiller, the teaser trailer for Zoolander 2 has arrived and a tease it absolutely is!
The sequel also stars Owen Wilson, Olivia Munn, Penelope Cruz, Kristen Wiig, billy Zane, Fred Armisen, and Christine Taylor.
I can’t wait to see Will Ferrell as Mugatu. His performance in the original Zoolander (2001) film is one of my favourite Ferrell portrayals. Time to re-watch it, also to remind myself of Derek Zoolander’s impressive patented poses; Blue Steel, Ferrari, La Tigre and of course, Magnum.
The new trailer for Room, directed by Lenny Abrahamssonand starring Brie Larson doesn’t reveal very much. However, that’s part of what makes it good. Especially if you have an overactive imagination like mine…
I last saw Larson in The Gambler (2015), whereshe gave a good performance alongside Mark Wahlberg. As such, I’m quite excited to witness more of her talents in this leading role.
I knew I’d end up watching Home, if only because of Jim Parsons, an Actor rightly celebrated for his portrayal of Sheldon Cooper in CBS’ The Big Bang Theory.
Also starring Rihanna, Steve Martin, Jennifer Lopez and directed by Tim Johnson, Home centres around a cute purple alien called Oh and his friendship with earthling girl, Tip (Rihanna).
The Boov, Oh’s alien race are undeniably cute and Home has several amusing moments – my favourite of which is when Oh learns about dancing. The way the story of the Gorg is concluded at the end is also great.
You may find the ‘bad English’ / interesting way that the Boov speak quite annoying. I sure did at first. But now, after a second viewing, the word adorable comes to mind instead.
The story is engaging but don’t be surprised if you get the urge to watch The Big Bang Theory as Home plays. Something to do with the pace of Home, perhaps. It could also be more about the power of the brilliant character that is Shelley Cooper.
