Starring Charlize Theron, Mackenzie Davis and Ron Livingston, Tully is a comedy about motherhood. One in which a mother of  three children, begrudgingly accepts her well-to-do brother’s gift of a ‘night nanny’, in the hopes that it will help destress her life. And so ensues adefinite change in the her life in the most unexpected ways.

Tully is written by Diablo Cody of Juno (2007) and Young Adult (2011), while Jason Reitman directs…

I know it’s only January but this is already one of my favourite trailers of 2018. Right after the ‘frozen pizza, awesome’ comment, I was almost certain that the next clip would show that she’d killed him. But then I realised that she of course had absolutely no energy left to spare.

Mark Duplass, Emily Haine, Marceline Hugot, Gameela Wright and Elaine Tan also star 

Tully Release Dates: April 20th, 2018 (US & UK)…

In dark comedy Gringo which stars Charlize Theron, David Oyelowo and Joel Edgerton, Oyelowo is Harold Soyinka, a former law-abiding citizen who, in his battle to survive finds himself a wanted criminal.

Directed by Nash Edgerton, Amanda Seyfried Thandie Newton and Sharlto Copley also star…

I’m really looking forward to seeing Oyelowo in a comedy role because this trailer is really fun. Something about this movie reminds me of We’re the Millers (2013), a fun comedy. Also, Copley and Theron are usually great in comedy roles.

Gringo Release Dates: March 9th, 2018 (US & UK)…

ATOMIC BLONDE (2017): New Trailer Starring Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman, Sofia Boutella…

Starring Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman, Sofia Boutella and directed by David Leitch, Atomic Blonde is all about an undercover MI6 agent who is sent to Berlin during the Cold War. The mission is to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and recover a missing list of double agents…

I like how the plot for this movie reads. It somehow brings to mind ideas of a female James Bond character. How exciting! As a big ‘Lady Theron’ fan, I very much look forward to watching her administer a tonne of serious ass-kicking. Ass kicking so good that this trailer already has me desperate to place Atomic Blonde next to Casino Royale (2006) in my list of  favourite action thrillers. Well done, trailer maker!

Atomic Blonde Release Dates: July 28th, 2017 (US), August 11th, 2017 (UK)…

From Straight Outta Compton (2015) director F. Gary Gray, The Fate Of The Furious, the new Fast And Furious movie trailer starring Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham to name just a few is here…

Trailer sneak peak

Trailer 1

I haven’t watched any of the furious films since the original but I have two reasons that make me more likely to get back into them: Charlize Theron and director,  F. Gary Gray.

Michelle Rodriguez, Helen Mirren, Scott Eastwood and Lucas Black also star.

The Fate Of The Furious Release Dates:  April 14th, 2017 (US & UK)…

Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara and George Takei are the stars of an intriguing new animation…

Directed by Travis Knight, I don’t know much about the story, but those visuals sure have my attention. Right now I’m guessing that  what’s coming is an adventure with a tiny  but mighty protagonist.

Release Date (s): August 19th, 2016 (US), September 9th, 2016 (UK)

I tuned in to the original film, Snow White & The Huntsman (2012) because the trailer was brilliant and Charlize Theron was involved. With the The Huntsman Winter’s War, the same reasons apply, but with the added bonus of two more talented ladies, Emily Blunt and Jessica Chastain…

MAD MAX – FURY ROAD (2015): For The Portrayals Of Madness

I remember absolutely nothing about the original Mad Max films. I’m not even sure that I’ve ever properly watched one. However, after seeing the teaser trailer for the 2015 version (Mad Max, Fury Road), it looks to be a fantastic spectacle.

Teaser Trailer >

All that’s left for me to do is get in the mood for another apocalyptic tale. Somehow I think Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult will manage to convince me. After all, what’s more intriguing than portrayals of ‘mad’ by talented Actors? Yes. Nothing.

After the tease… The Official Main Trailer >

How amazing was that? Talk About Relentless!

The Final Trailer >

And so the final stretch of the wait begins.

Happy Mad Max – Fury Road 🙂

SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN (2012): Great Example of Trailer Perfection

Snow White And The Huntsman (2012)

From the beautifully paced editing, perfect choice of music, to the narrative concept, dialogue and visuals / special effects; the Snow White And The Huntsman (2012) trailer provides just enough detail to make you aware that this is a wonderfully different retelling.

The decision to make Charlize Theron the key focus of the trailer is genius. This isn’t a film aimed at the traditional young Disney audience. Hence the absence of elements that quite frankly I’m glad are no where to be found. Musical numbers being just one of them.

This tantalisingly dark 1 minute 54 second trailer arrests the senses and refuses to let go until the very last second. What a wonderful marriage of audio visual delight delivered to perfection.

For many, Kristen Stuart is the big draw which is unsurprising due to the success of The Twilight Saga. For me though, without question it’s Charlize Theron.

The tone and delivery of Theron’s performance is such a thrill to behold, that to date I’ve watched the trailer a countless number of times.

The Snow White & The Huntsman trailer has a place in a compilation of my favourite film trailers of 2012. It also makes it on my list of favourite Charlize Theron  performances; Monster (2003) being one of them.

Happy Snow White And The Huntsman 🙂
