New action/adventure/sci-fi The Tomorrow War has Chris Pratt playing Dan, a man drafted to fight in a future war. One where the fate of humanity relies on his ability to confront his past.

Directed by Chris McKay; additional key cast includes Betty Gilpin, J.K. Simmons, Sam Richardson, Edwin Hodge and Yvonne Strahovski.

Hello, interesting movie premise!

I’m also in to see Pratt in an action movie role; the kind that seems to have strong Tom Cruise vibes. Perhaps it’s just the shot at 16 seconds into this trailer that has me making the Cruise connection.

Also, there’s Gilpin. I feel as though her character is going to be quite the badass. If you’ve seen The Hunt (2020), then you know that she’s great at that.

Jasmine Mathews, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Ryan Kiera Armstrong, Keith Powers, Mike Mitchell, Seychelle Gabriel, Alan Trong, Chibuikem Uche and Felisha Terrell also star.

The Tomorrow War Rel;ease Dates: July 2nd, 2021 (US), Amazon Prime Video…

THE HUNT (2020): The Things I Liked

Betty Gilpin’s smart and badass character Crystal is my favourite thing about director Craig Zobel’s The Hunt; the most controversial near release of 2019.

Also starring Hilary Swank, Justin Hartley and Emma Roberts; Zobel’s story centres around twelve strangers who get kidnapped for the specific purpose of being hunted.

The Hunt‘s original 2019 release date was cancelled because following the launch of the trailer, America was unfortunately having to deal with another mass shooting. Additional complaints also came to light about the movie’s presumed controversial politics, concerning the relationship between the left and right.

I remember the filmmakers were happy to delay the movie’s release. And having now watched it, I can see why they insisted that The Hunt isn’t as problematic, in terms of premise and politics as many were assuming. Any talk of politics in the movie is mainly amusing. The real fun starts as we start learning more and more about Gilpin’s Crystal.

The Hunt isn’t the kind of movie to get top marks for story or all-round great acting where one or two earlier characters is concerned. But that doesn’t mean I won’t watch it again. For me, there’s just had too much fun to be had with Crystal.

Watch it if you’re curious.

Taraji P. Henson, Ed Helms, Betty Gilpin and Andrew Bachelor (King Bach) are the stars of Coffee and Kareem.

All so they can save themselves from Detroit’s most ruthless drug kingpin.

I’m looking forward to this one because I like Helms, Henson and Gilpin. Plus, that slap at 1:21 into this trailer is amusingly crisp and precise. There’s also the above image of Helms in the hat which happens to make me smile every time I look at it.

Chance Hurstfield, Serge Houde, RonReaco Lee, Samantha Cole, Fraser Aitcheson and Garfield Wilson also star.

Coffee & Kareem Release Dates: April 3rd, 2020 (US)…
