The latest trailer for Star Wars – The Rise Of Skywalker just landed.

Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Lupita Nyong’o and Adam Driver are the main stars of this promising final chapter of the Star Wars….

I must admit that he start of this trailer had me thinking that maybe this was a non-official, fan-made edit because I didn’t expect the older clips. The latter half is great, of course; especially thanks to the final revelatory image at the end. My hand definitely went to my mouth in surprise.

What are your thoughts on this new trailer edit? Let me know in the comments.

Co-written and directed by J.J. Abrams, Other key cast includes Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Carrie Fisher, Dominic Monaghan and Keri Russell…

THE REPORT (2019): New Trailer From Adam Driver, Jon Hamm, Michael C. Hall, Annette Bening…

Adam Driver, Jon Hamm, Michael C. Hall and Annette Bening are the stars of The Report, a new drama set in the aftermath of 9/11.

Written / directed by Scott Z. Burns, the story is focused on the CIA agents involved in using extreme interrogation tactics as they try to find those responsible…

First of all, this is a perfectly edited trailer. Loving the sound, the voices, music and perhaps most of all, the dialogue. I couldn’t help but think of Aaron Sorkin as I listened.

Also, I’ve really been enjoying Driver’s movie choices recently. As such I can hardly wait to take in all greatness that this one seems to promise.

Corey Stoll, Michael C. Hall, Maura Tierney, Ben McKenzie, Matthew Rhys, Tim Blake Nelson and Ted Levine also star.

The Report Release Dates: November 15th, 2019 (US)…

MARRIAGE STORY (2019): New Trailer From Noah Baumbach, Starring Scarlett Johansson, Laura Dern, Adam Driver, Ray Liotta…

Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson, Laura Dern and Ray Liotta, are the stars of the latest Noah Baumbach directed comedy / drama, Marriage Story.

It’s the story of a stage director (Driver), his actor wife (Johansson) and their unfolding divorce that spans from New York City to Los Angeles…

What a beautiful editing job. I was smiling and then sad within seconds. Considering Driver’s characters many admirable attributes, I’m looking forward to finding out the detail of where it all went horribly wrong.

Already I can’t wait for more of the comedy. I loved the ‘I cried four times’ ‘Me Too’ moment.

Merritt Wever, Julie Hagerty, Alan Alda, Mark O’Brien, Ayden Mayeri and Mary Hollis Inboden also star.

STAR WARS – The Rise Of Skywalker (2019): NEW Trailer From Daisey Ridley, Lupita Nyong’o, John Boyega, Adam Driver…

Starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Lupita Nyong’o and Adam Driver, the trailer for Star Wars – The Rise Of Skywalker, the final chapter of the Star Wars saga is here.

Co-written and directed by J.J. Abrams, other key cast includes Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Carrie Fisher, Dominic Monaghan and Keri Russell…

Episode 9 may well be called ‘the final chapter’ but there’s without a doubt, many, many more Star wars movies to come.

A very cool trailer, of course. Also, that great jump by Ridley’s Rey really had me wanting to sign up for a gymnastics class. Granted it was a fleeting thought but for a second there, nothing was more true in my world.

Chloë Sevigny, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray and Selena Gomez are the stars of new Jim Jarmusch comedy / horror, The Dead Don’t Die.

Set in the peaceful town of Centerville, the locals find themselves battling a zombie horde as the dead start rising from their graves…

I like the way this looks almost exactly like kind of Zombie movie I’ve been waiting for. The great cast and the promise of humour have waiting impatiently.

Steve Buscemi, Caleb Landry Jones, Austin Butler, Tom Waits, Danny Glover, Iggy Pop, Rosal Colon and RZA also star.

The Dead don’t Die Release Dates: June 14th, 2019 (US)…

THE MAN WHO KILLED DON QUIXOTE (2019): New Trailer From Adam Driver, Jonathan Pryce, Olga Kurylenko, Stellan Skarsgård…

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (2018), Adam Driver, Alacran Pictures

Directed by Terry Gilliam, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote is an adventure / comedy / drama starring Adam Driver, Jonathan Pryce, Olga Kurylenko and Stellan Skarsgård.

At the centre of the story is Toby (Driver), a disillusioned advertising executive who’s pulled into a world of time jumping fantasy when he’s mistaken someone else. Gradually Toby becomes unable to tell dreams from reality…

I’d say that peculiar is the right word for this trailer. I’m interested because of the hints of humour, the cast and because I want to find out whether by the end, I’ll actually want Don Quixote killed. Perhaps I’ll find him charming.

Joana Ribeiro, Jorge Calvo, Bruno Sevilla and Jordi Mollà also star.

BLACKKKLANSMAN (2018): The Things I Liked…

Blackkklansman is the true story of Ron Stallworth, an African-American police officer from Colorado who successfully infiltrated the local Ku Klux Klan and became the head of the local chapter.

Starring John David Washington, Adam Driver and Topher Grace, Blackkklansman is an engaging, suspenseful and entertaining experience from start to finish. 

Considering the backdrop of a very racially tense time in America, director Spike Lee does a good job of delivering tension and suspense mixed in with humour and iconic imagery of the 1970s. From the style, fashion, music as well as the general mood and atmosphere. Lee serves it all up without forgetting the all important message, particularly in reference to the past and present encouragement of racial violence by political forces. 

I enjoyed the general cleverness of Lee’s directorial execution as well as the execution of Stallworth’s police investigation. The brotherhood between the investigative team is also a highlight, along with the vision of so many healthy looking afros and being reintroduced to the following rather joyful song…

Too Late To Turn Back Now by Cornelius Brothers & Sister Rose

Watch it because all the tension and suspense pays off in quite the satisfying way.

Co-written and directed by Spike Lee; John David Washington, Adam Driver and Topher Grace are the stars of BlacKkKlansman, the true story of Ron Stallworth, an African-American police officer from Colorado.

Stallworth is known for successfully infiltrating the local Ku Klux Klan and becoming the head of the local chapter…

With a title like that, I’m glad this movie is at least partly a comedy. I really appreciated the slow motion turn 00:33 seconds into the trailer.

And of course, for fan’s of excellent comedian Dave Chappelle, there’s almost certainly no reading this movie’s title and watching this trailer without remembering one of the best ever characters of The Chappelle Show, Clayton Bigsby.

BlacKkKlansman Release Dates: August 10th, 2018 (US); August 24th, 2018 (UK)…
