Film and comic book fans have been going crazy over the recent Deadpool trailer trailer. And no. That’s not a typo. The makers of the film have indeed released an actual trailer, for the trailer…
If like myself you’re a non-reader of comic books or just unfamiliar with the Deadpool story but want to make sense of what you’ve just seen, here’s what wikipedia had to say about this Marvel Comics / X-Force / X-Men Origins character:
‘Deadpool is a disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary with the superhuman ability of an accelerated healing factor. He is known as the “Merc with a Mouth” because of his talkative nature and tendency to break the fourth wall, which is used by writers to humorous effect.’
Based on what I’ve watched of the films star, Ryan Reynolds in terms of other works, he seems well cast as the lead. Particularly regarding his comic abilities.
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.
