Operation Finale is the true story of the team of secret agents brought together to find Adolf Eichmann, the infamous Nazi architect of the Holocaust.

Set 15 years after World War II, Operation Finale is directed by Chris Weitz and stars Oscar Isaac, Ben Kingsley, Mélanie Laurent, Joe Alwyn…

I’m excited at the prospect of seeing Ben Kingsley in a movie that looks worthy of his talents. I also want the bad guy caught, of course.

As I watched this trailer, it occurred to me that so iconic is Christoph Waltz’s turn as Col. Hans Landa in Inglorious Basterds (2009), I will probably always think of him every time I see another actor in the Colonel uniform of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi army. I confess that I say this as someone who’s yet to watch Schindler’s list.

Nick Kroll, Lior Raz and Haley Lu Richardson also star.

Operation Finale Release Dates: September 14th, 2018 (US)…

Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton and Will Poulter’s latest movie, War Machine is a satire of America’s war with Afghanistan. Directed by David Michôd, the comedy/ drama focuses on the people running the war campaign…

I can’t wait to see this movie. Following the trailer for Bright (2017) starring Will Smith and Okja (2017) with Jake Gyllenhaal, War Machine is the third trailer in three days for a movie starring a Hollywood A-lister, that’s due to be released exclusively on Netflix. Interesting times indeed.

On another note, I kind of already inherently knew this but my goodness Brad Pitt is easy to watch. I guess it’s called charisma… among other things.

Emory Cohen, Ben Kingsley, Topher Grace, Scoot McNairy and Anthony Michael Hall also star.

War Machine Release Dates: May 26th, 2017, (UK); 2017 (US)…

It’s time for another re-imagining of a popular story from your childhood…

I recall the story somewhat vaguely and I do like the cast. Idris Elba, Neel Sethi, Scarlett Johansson, Ben Kingsley, Lupita Nyong’o and Christopher Walken make the cast of this Jon Favreau directed version.

Having just seen the above trailer I’m curious to find out whether I’ll warm to Scarlett Johanson’s Kaa voice. Not quite sure at this point. I’m most ready for Bill Murray’s Baloo voice.

Happy The Jungle Book 🙂

THE WALK (2015): Joseph Gordon-Levitt Is Philippe Petitte

The trailer is out for the new Robert Zemeckis film based on French High-Wire Artist Philippe Petit. The Walk has an international cast led by Joseph Gordon-Levitt and includes Ben Kingsley,  Charlotte Le Bon, James Badge Dale and Ben Schwartz.

What lies ahead is an exciting risk taking adventure. Though I don’t know if I’ll be able to completely suspend my disbelief when it comes to the French accent.

Still, somehow the story of a man who chooses to walk on a wire from great heights, and without any safety precautions is probably interesting enough to convince me. That is unless I opt for the 2008 documentary, Man on Wire instead.

Happy The Walk 🙂
