NAPLES ’44 (2016): New Trailer For World War II Documentary Voiced By Benedict Cumberbatch, Adriano Giannini…

Directed by Francesco Patierno, Naples ’44 is a documentary about a British Intelligence Officer in Naples at the end of World War II. Based on Norman Lewis’s acknowledged masterpiece about a war-torn city and its unforgettable humanity, Benedict Cumberbatch and Adriano Giannini lend their voices to bring Lewis’s words to life…

The visuals in this trailer have me very intrigued indeed. They’re, in parts horrific, hugely disturbing but also undeniably beautiful all at the same time. I can’t wait to see it all together. I’m also looking forward to hearing Cumberbatch bring his vocal talent and presence to the  cause

Naples ’44 Release Dates: November 29th, 2017 (US)…

THE CURRENT WAR (2017): New Trailer From Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult, Tom Holland…

Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, The Current War is the story of the cutthroat race between electricity titans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to determine whose electrical system would power the modern world. Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult and Tom Holland star…

I find this trailer somewhat over stylised. Nevertheless, there’s just too much impressive talent involved. And I definitely don’t just mean the actors. I can’t wait to see how people battled for market share back then compared to the tech giants of today.

I wonder if The Current War will come close to replacing The imitation Game (2014) as my favourite Benedict Cumberbatch movie. I think not but I’m open to pleasant surprises.

Ekow Quartey, Tuppence Middleton and Matthew Macfadyen make up additional supporting cast.

The Current War Release Dates: January 19th, 2018 (US)…

Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett, Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba are back for the next Thor movie instalment. Directed by Taika Waititi, in Thor – Ragnarok,  Thor, the hammer wielding god of thunder, lightning, storms, etcetera, must face the Incredible Hulk in a gladiator match and save his people from the ruthless Hela (Blanchett)…

I haven’t watched any Thor Movie’s since Hemsworth’s first because Thor generally isn’t my favourite Marvel superhero. However, this undeniably cool new  trailer may just have pulled me right back in. There’s also another reason… my favourite acting queen! Cate Blanchett, of course.

Thor  – Ragnarok Release Dates: October 27th, 2017 (UK) November 3rd, 2017 (US)…

Jamie Alexander and Tessa Thompson also star.

WALK WITH ME (2017): New Trailer For Mindfulness Documentary Narrated By Benedict Cumberbatch

Directed by Marc Francis, Max Pugh and narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch, Walk With Me is a documentary that follows a community of Zen Buddhist monks and nuns whose lives are focused on mastering the art of mindfulness with well-known teacher Thich Nhat Hanh…

Walk With Me seems ideal for fans of mindfulness and those who are sort of a little curious about it but haven’t bothered to find out more because it looks like a lot of hard work. ‘Isn’t sleep and general relaxation enough though?’, some in the latter group may or may not have wondered, probably.

According to the all knowing internet, ‘Mindfulness is a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique’.

I’ll eventually tune into this one – if only to find out whether the beautiful bass in Benedict Cumberbatch’s voice will prove as distracting as this trailer suggests.

DOCTOR STRANGE (2016): New Trailer From Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams & Tilda Swinton

It may not look like it at first and second glance, (at least not to me) but Doctor Strange, the latest movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams and Tilda Swinton is part of  the Marvel universe…

Teaser Trailer

Trailer 2

Even though I’m over the ‘saving the world’ storyline synonymous with Marvel’s movies. I’m open to finding out how Doctor Strange will do the same thing but hopefully somehow – maybe in a new way, differently. Hmmmmm…

Some of the footage in this trailer has brought Inception (2010) to my mind. However I do know that this is unlikely to be much like that.

Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen and Benedict Wong also star.

Doctor Strange Release Dates: October 28th, 2016 (UK); November 4th, 2016 (US)…

BLACK MASS (2015) Trailer 2, Looking forward To The Humour

Trailer 2 for Black Mass, one of the year’s most promising films is here.

Featuring the brilliant acting talents of Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch and Dakota Johnson, to name just a few, the story of James ‘ Whitey’ Bulger, south Boston’s most infamous violent criminal is looking like something no true film fan is going to want to miss.

After seeing this trailer, what’s suddenly very intriguing is the female characters. Particularly how much denial they were likely in. I guess we’ll all find out in 5/6 months. Something tells me that the soundtrack to this movie  is going to be good.

Happy Black Mass 🙂
