Here’s the brand new trailer starring Zac Efron, Aubrey Plaza, Anna Kendrick and Adam DeVine. A trailer to get us all in the mood for summer 2016…
Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates looks like the kind of non-serious summer viewing fun I’m going to be in the mood for come July and August. Zac Efron is lovely and all, but it’s really Anna Kendrick playing an outrageous character that I’m most looking forward to in this movie. For some reason I still think of her as the prim and proper young professional, Natalie Keener – George Clooney’s side-kick in Up In The Air (2009).
The last time I saw Ryan Reynolds in a film was The Proposal (2009). It wasn’t my favourite and kind of kept me away from future Reynolds movies. Having watched The Voices (2014), I can confirm that my attitude has changed.
The Voices is a crime/ comedy film directed by Marjane Satrapi and stars Reynolds as Jerry – a sinister / very unbalanced individual who somehow manages to remain likeable.
You’ll probably find yourself not quite rooting for him as such – on account of the murdering. However empathy will kick in since he’s definitely ‘not well’.
The way the Director/ Cinematographer presented the world of Jerry, how he sees things as opposed to actual reality is a particular highlight.
Watch it for a pleasantly different turn from Reynolds and good performances from Jacki Weaver, Anna Kendrick and Gemma Aterton. I was also glad to see great character actor Sam Spruell’s name on the cast list.
