Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Marcia Gay Harden and Teyonah Parris are the stars of new Joe Lynch directed action / thriller Point Blank.

In a race against time, rival criminals and renegade cops, an emergency room nurse (Mackie) must team up with an injured murder suspect in order to save his pregnant wife…

I’ll give this a chance because of Mackie, especially. Also Netflix movies seem to slowly be getting better.

I admit that there’s actually one specific point in this trailer that captured my imagination more than anything else – and that’s the gorgeous purple hue of Mackie’s outfit. You can see it from approximately 0:10 into the trailer.

Christian Cooke, Boris McGiver, Ming Wang, Carly Tamborski, Harrison Sheckler, Markice Moore and Lea Hutton Beasmore also star.

Point Blank Release Dates: July 12th, 2019 (US)…

Directed by Jonathan Helpert; Anthony Mackie, Margaret Qualley and Danny Huston are the stars of IO. 

IO is a new sci-fi movie about one of the last survivors on a post-cataclysmic Earth. A place where a young scientist has dedicated to find a way for humans to adapt and survive, rather than abandon their planet. Unexpectedly, she begins to question her decision following the arrival of another survivor…

I’m intrigued by the premise and I like Mackie, especially ever since I saw his great work in The Hurt Locker (2008).

Then there’s the fact that the last time I put my trust in Netflix and sat down to watch one of their sci-fi movies, namely Extinction (2018), I found myself wanting. I wish my expectations were higher with this, nevertheless move move forward with hope.

IO Release Dates: January 18th, 2019 (US & UK)…

In Catherine Hardwicke directed crime / thriller Miss Bala, Gina Rodriguez is a beauty contest winner who ends up forced to work for a crime boss after she witnesses a murder.

Anthony Mackie, Matt Lauria and Ismael Cruz Cordova also star…

I want to find out how well Rodriguez does in the role. Fingers crossed that it’s all well executed overall.

Miss Bala Release Dates: January 25th, 2019 (US); February 8th, 2019 (UK)…

DETROIT (2017): New Trailer From Kathryn Bigelow, Starring John Boyega, Will Poulter, John Krasinski…

Oscar winning director Kathryn Bigelow’s latest movie is all about the 1967 police raid in Detroit, USA that lead to one of the largest citizen uprisings in the history of the United States. John Boyega, Will Poulter, John Krasinski Anthony Mackie and Jack Reynor star…

This is definitely in my list of best trailers of 2017. Boyega and Poulter’s accents sound great – according to my non-American ears. I look forward to the seriously tense scenes that are surely coming my way.

Tyler James Williams, Kaitlyn Dever and Hannah Murray also star.

Detroit Release Dates: August 4th, 2017 (US)…

LOVE THE COOPERS (2015): For Weekend Easy Viewing With A Side Of Romance

I would describe Love The Coopers as less like Elf (2003) and more like ABC TV series, Brothers & Sisters.

Directed by Jessie Nelson and starring John Goodman, Diane Keaton, Ed Helms, and Steve Martin, I’d say that Love The Coopers is one of those holiday films that reminds you that every family has its unpleasant tensions and challenging relationships. But the good news is, the tense moments are wisely interspersed with humour and cheer.

The character Olivia Wilde plays is my favourite, partly because I find Wilde rather likeable in real life, but mostly I relate most to aspects of her character above the others in the movie.

I was in the mood to watch something that didn’t demand too much from me and that’s exactly what I got with this movie. Love The Coopers probably won’t make my top 10 favourite Christmas movies list, but it is easy relaxing viewing with a side of romance – and one can always make a little time for something like that.

Anthony Mackie, Jake Lacy, Amanda Seyfried and Marisa Tomei also star.

CAPTAIN AMERICA – CIVIL WAR (2016): New Trailer From Chris Evans & Scarlett Johansson

A second trailer for directing brothers Joe and Anthony Russo has landed for the 2016 instalment of Marvel’s Captain America

Trailer 1

Trailer 2

I like the first trailer more than the second, thanks to the music and the circumstances of the the characters involved. I’ll watch Captain America Civil War for this reason, as well as another chance to see Chris Evans’ portrayal the rather admirable Steve Rogers.

This instalment of the franchise doesn’t seem to be about saving the world but more about Captain America’s relationship with his childhood friend, Bucky Barnes/ The Winter Soldier and how that effects others including Robert Downey Junior’s Iron Man.

Beyond the above, my personal level of excitement when it comes to superhero movies has definitely dwindled over time. That’s what happens in most instances when you’re fed the same kind of thing repeatedly and with minimal respite. At this time I find myself actually looking forward to the time when this particular series of the Captain America Story is wrapped up. I had to say it.

SHELTER (2015): New Trailer Starring Jennifer Connelly & Anthony Mackie

Written and directed by Paul Bettany, Shelter is not the kind of love story you can expect around Valentine’s day…

Starring Anthony Mackie and Jennifer Connelly, it’s the film’s intriguing character stories, their seemingly unique experience and the New York City setting that has me very curious indeed.

Release Date (s): November 13th 2015 (US limited release), November 27th 2015 (UK)…

TRIPLE 9 (2016): Explosive New Trailer Starring Norman Reedus, Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul…

Just when I feared things were slowing down trailer-wise because Christmas is coming…Chiwetel Ejiofor, Norman Reedus, Woody Harrelson, Kate Winslet and Aaron Paul have a brand new trailer and this Red Band version is gritty, riotous and explosive. Perhaps a ‘Valentines day romantic movie’ antidote; especially so considering the US release date is February 2016…

Triple 9 is from John Hillcoat, a name you may recognise because he’s the director behind the rather good Tom Hardy and Guy Pearce movie, Lawless (2012).

I want to take a moment to say well done to the trailer maker because it’s great that very little of the plot has been revealed but yet I’m hooked. It’s probably best that I savour this moment because by the time trailer 2, 3 and maybe even 4 come around, I’ll know far more than I could ever want prior to the movie.

So looking forward to this and very excited to see what looks like a seriously badass turn from Kate Winslet.

Release Date (s): February 19th 2016 (US)…

Happy Triple 9 🙂
