Today’s trailer definitely isn’t the kind of thing I’d been expecting from Oscar winning actress Anne Hathaway. Still, Colossal, a Nacho Vigalondo written and directed movie about a woman (Hathaway) who finds that severe catastrophic events are in some way connected to her present mental breakdown could be absolutely great. Even though the following trailer which also stars Jason Sudeikis and Dan Stevens hasn’t quite managed to convince me just yet…
I’ve decided that I’m going to trust in Hathaway’s choices and hope for the very best. Other cast includes Austin Stowell, Tim Blake Nelson, Miho Suzuki and Rukiya Bernard.
Starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, One Day is the story of Dexter and Em, a pair we first meet on the day they spend a night together on the last day of college. We then get to see them many times more on the very same day in the years that follow.
Directed by Lone Sherfig and based on the best selling novel by David Nicholls, I liked One Day because it’s a charming, well told and universal story. One of male/ female friendships, unrequited love and incredibly bad timing at its core. Anne Hathaway’s British accent is very impressive and you’ll definitely notice the film’s well chosen soundtrack and musical score.
Watch One Day because it’s good and the themes featured are really worth being exposed to. Patricia Clarkson, Rafe Spall,Tom Mison and David Ajala make up more of the talented cast. There’s also a well cast little girl we see later in the movie that looks suspiciously like a young Cara Delevigne.
Written and directed by Nancy Meyers, the person behind other popular and well-executed comedies such as The Holiday (2006)and Something’sGotta Give (2003), I had high hopes for The Intern.
Starring Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway, my favourite thing about Meyers’ moviehas to be the story of the unexpected friendship between De Niro’s senior intern character and the successful, young online fashion business founder played by Hathaway.
A big part of what makes the relationship between the two main characters great to watch is De Niro’s portrayal of Ben; the comic timing and particularly the kind of person Ben represents.
An inspiring story of young people in charge doing what they love and doing it well is also what The Intern is about. I tuned in because the mood for a good light comedy struck and good is definitely what I found.
If you were after more reasons to watch, there’s the New York City setting, good soundtrack and the other cast members. Zack Pearlman’s character Davis is particularly fun. Adam DeVine, Christina Scherer, Anders Holm, Rene Russo and JoJo Kushner also star.
I had no idea that what was missing from my life was another Alice in Wonderland movie. That was until I saw the rather beautiful new trailer for Alice Through The looking Glass…
I remember loving Alice In Wonderland (2010); may this be just as good as it’s predecessor – at the very least. Especially since Tim Burton’s highly imaginative brain isn’t the one in the director’s chair this time.
Johnny Depp, Mia Wasikowska, Anne Hathaway, Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter make up some of the colourful cast.
Bring on the colours, the rhymes and the brilliant costumes!
Writer/ Director Nancy Meyers’ new movie The Intern stars Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway…
I didn’t write about the first trailer because it didn’t have me excited. But the latest one is definitely preferable. It’s the young female entrepreneur element that appeals to me most. That and the generally trustworthy cast that includes Rene Russo.
What I can confirm first and foremost is that Song One is well-acted and definitely not the kind of feel good romantic comedy that you may be expecting. It is indeed a hopeful drama but it’s also quite dull and depressing in parts.
The film, written and directed by Kate Barker-Froyland starts with a 19 year-old musician played by Ben Rosenfield getting hit by a car. His sister (Anne Hathaway), in trying to do everything she can to help end his comatose state, starts a relationship with his favourite musician, James Forrester (Johnny Flynn).
This is one you watch if the story and themes mentioned above intrigue you. Another reason would be if you’re more than just a casual fan of Hathaway and / or folk-rock music. Otherwise it’s likely that you’ll find yourself checking the time after hitting play – and more than once.
I enjoyed the sibling relationship aspect of the story most. Lastly, ‘In April’ and ‘Little Yellow Dress’ are my favourite tracks from the soundtrack.
