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 going to confess right  to the fact that I’ve 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.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Creed (2015).

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 Secret In Their Eyes starring Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor finally has a trailer and it looks rather good…

The fact that two of the three lead Actors have an Oscar statue at home and the third is Oscar nominated is a surefire sign that it’s going to be emotional .

I’ve actually deliberately not included the synopsis because I’m sure you agree that this trailer is best enjoyed when you don’t know too much beforehand.

I can’t wait to see Roberts being badass.

Happy Secret In Their Eyes 🙂

BALLET 422 (2014): uSEFUL fILM 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, I got to experience the sense of urgency and the apparent stress involved with such a feat, especially for Justin.

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 quite leave me more interested in being a spectator of ballet. At least not as much as the following…

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.

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 🙂

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

Bring on all the kooky. I’m ready

Happy Mistress America 🙂

MASTERMINDS (2015): More Galifianakis ‘Crazy’, With A Side of Wiig & Sudeikis…

Funny and bearded Actor Zach Galifianakis, best known for his excellent turn in the Hangover (2009) movies as the somewhat unhinged Alan, is back.

This time Galifianakis comes with Jason Sudeikis, Kristen Wiig, Owen Wilson and Kate Mckinnon in Mastermind – a very promising new comedy due this summer.

I’m most excited about Galifiniakis, of course; but also the character played by Sudeikis.

My fingers are crossed that this movie is filled with more great lines and scenes not yet shown in the trailer.

Mastaminds a.k.a. The Bank Heist (2016) Release Dates: September 30th, 2016 (US)…

HITMAN – AGENT 47 (2015): Looks Like Serious ‘Badassery’ Ahead, Starring Rupert Friend…

In case you thought Avengers – Age Of Ultron (2015), The Man From U.N.C.L.E.  (2015) and Spectre (2015) (to name just three) aren’t enough action and adventure for 2015, here comes one more.

Directed by Aleksander Bach and starring Rupert Friend, Zachary Quinto and Hannah Ware, HitMan – Agent 47 arrives with the story of an engineered human assassin on his latest mission…

I’m excited for Friend because he was great in Starred Up (2013), along with jack O’Connell, and this is an excitingly different kind of role.

How cool is that line about the gun? I know you heard it.
