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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
