Guy Richie directs Mena Massoud, Billy Magnussen, Will Smith and Naomi Scott in Disney’s live action remake of Aladdin.

The following trailer is just a teaser but in case you forgot, the story of Aladdin starts when a sultan gives his daughter, Jasmine three days to find a husband. She escapes the palace and encounters the street-savvy Aladdin who charms his way into her heart…

For a moment there I was thinking, ‘are they really not going to show any footage, at all?’ and then the scene with the lamp happened and though it’s hardly anything, I was certainly happier than expected.

I didn’t actually realise I’d forgotten most of Aladdin’s story until I looked up the synopsis. Time to rewatch the animated version, I think.

Nasim Pedrad, Marwan Kenzari, Numan Acar, Kamil Lemieszewski and Navid Negahban also star.

Aladdin Release Dates: May 24th, 2019 (US & UK)…

Directed by Cameron Yates; Chef Flynn is a new documentary about ten-year-old Flynn McGarry who went from cooking for his family and friends in his home, to challenging the hierarchy of the culinary world by opening a restaurant in New York City by the age of sixteen.

Anyone can cook!

These are the words that came to mind as I watched this trailer. They are words made famous by Chef Gusteau from my favourite Disney Pixar movie, Ratatouille (2007).

I want to see this to learn more about McGarry and to enjoy the story of a boy who knew his path early whilst being blessed with precisely the kind of parents one would need in order to flourish in his chose field.

Chef Flynn Release Dates: November 9th, 2018 (US)…

Todays video is about music. It’s not strictly The Music Tag because I didn’t ensure I answered all the usual questions. Nonetheless, I hope you enjoy learning a little more music and I – including my thoughts on karaoke and musicals.

Directer Fabien Constant’s Here and Now stars Sarah Jessica Parker as a singer in New York who finds a new perspective on her life and dreams following grim diagnosis.

Other key cast includes Renée Zellweger, Simon Baker, Common, Taylor Kinney, Jacqueline Bisset, Michael Potts…

Seems like the kind of interesting human story I could enjoy. The mix of acting talent is kind of  unexpected whilst holding some promise.

Lastly, I find curious about Parker’s singing voice – assuming that we’ll get to here it in the movie.

Directed by George Ratliff; Emily Ratajkowski, Aaron Paul and Riccardo Scamarcio are the stars of Welcome Home; a thriller about a couple on a weekend at a vacation rental home in the Italian countryside. Falling victim to the homeowner’s sinister plans, their attempt to repair their relationship is derailed…

I’m not sure how good this one will be but I do find myself quite curious. There’s also the fact that this movie is set in the beautiful Italian countryside; a part of Italy I last saw on screen and adored in season two of Master Of None (2017).

Welcome Home Release Dates: November 16th, 2018 (US)..

THE UPSIDE (2017): New Trailer From Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston, Nicole Kidman…

The Upside is a remake of French film The Intouchables (2011), the story of the relationship between a wealthy paraplegic and an unemployed man with a criminal record who’s hired to help him.

Bryan Cranston, Kevin Hart and Nicole Kidman star while Neil Burger directs…

There’s no denying it, The Intouchables  is a great movie and could have done without a remake. At the same time though, I think I may actually have fun seeing how different this remake is to the original. I could also be wrong about that last statement but I don’t mind finding out. Furthermore, I want to see what comedian Kevin Hart can do in a more dramatic role.

Julianna Margulies, Golshifteh Farahani, Tate Donovan and Aja Naomi King also star.

The Upside Release Dates: January 11th, 2019 (US & UK)…

THE MULE (2018): New Trailer From Clint Eastwood, Bradley Cooper, Michael Peña, Laurence Fishburne…

In new crime / drama / mystery The Mule, Clint Eastwood is a  90-year-old horticulturist and WWII veteran who gets caught transporting $3 million worth of cocaine for a Mexican drug cartel.

Also directed by Clint Eastwood, additional key cast includes Bradley Cooper, Michael Peña, Laurence Fishburne…

Firstly, well done trailer maker! Second, following the success of their last pairing for American Sniper (2014), it’s really great to see Eastwood and Cooper working together again.

Seeing how vulnerable Eastwood’s character appears to be, it’s clear that this movie will likely be emotionally taxing – though I’m hoping also quite worth it.

Taissa Farmiga, Clifton Collins Jr., Manny Montana, Dianne Wiest, Alison Eastwood and Dianne Wiest also star.

The Mule Release Dates: December 14th, 2018 (US)
