Directed by Drew Goddard, new thriller Bad Times At The El Royale is set in a rundown hotel with a dark past. A hotel where seven strangers with secrets to bury have one last shot at redemption – before everything goes to hell.
Chris Hemsworth, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, Jeff Bridges and Cynthia Erivo star…
With such a great cast and promising trailer, I say bring on the style, colour and madness.
Nick Offerman, Cailee Spaeny, Lewis Pullman and Bethany Brown also star.
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.
Starring Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig and Chris Hemsworth, Ghostbusters is simultaneously everything I expected and also what I did not expect. The former because the trailers were so very disappointing that I really ought to have known. The latter because the director is Paul Feig, the man who brought us big comedy hits such as Bridesmaids (2011) and Spy (2015).
Surely if anyone could do right by the much loved Ghostbusters classic it would be Feig, no? Apparently not because the words that went through my mind as I watched Ghostbusters were ‘Oh, this is bad and slow.’ ’Why does the green slime feel ridiculous, unfunny and the special effects dated?’ ‘Why am I not laughing?’ ‘Is this movie made for nine to fourteen year-olds?’ Was the production just a mad rush?’ ‘Where did it all go wrong? I had such high HOPES! (before I saw the trailers)’.
Even though the trailers did leave plenty to be desired, I didn’t really believe that we’d end up with what feels like a wasted opportunity and a Paul Feig movie I’d much rather forget.
Within all the madness, I did manage to find a few highlights. Firstly, there’s the great line or two delivered by Kevin (Chris Hemsworth) when he’s questioned about his glasses. Second, Leslie Jones’s energy and commitment to her character is something that really helped with my engagement levels. Third, the role played by Zach Woods – because he has great facial expressions and eyeballs. Last but certainly not least, Bill Murray. His character’s appearance actually helped lift things for a good few seconds, far from long enough, obviously.
At this point, I’d just really love for Feig’s next movie to be great because rightly or wrongly, he’s the one I’m most disappointed in.
I want to say that ‘here you have it, the first Ghostbusters trailer has finally landed!’ But as you’ll soon see…
It’s not all bad. The music works with the visuals. In fact, it’s really exciting at first because you think it’s leading to a moment of revelation. Only there is sadly, no revelation.
Pointless is a word that comes to mind for this teaser to a teaser trailer. I’m still excited about this reboot because it stars three great ladies of comedy; Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKinnon. The director, Paul Feig is the man behind Bridesmaids (2011) and most recently the very entertaining Spy (2015) so on hope lives!
One of the best executions of a teaser teaser trailer I’ve ever seen is for Deadpool (2016).
In just over two weeks (March 3rd 2016), we’ll have the next Ghostbusters trailer. All I have to say is, may it be good enough to make up for the above, dare I say, nonsense. Chris Hemsworth, Michael Kenneth Williams and Andy Garcia also star.
Directed by Ron Howard and based on the book by Nathaniel Philbrick, the thing that excites me most about this movie is the special effects. Whales are beautiful, majestic creatures and loving them as I do, I don’t know how easily I’ll be able to look at the whale as the ‘bad guy.’ On second thought, I’m thinking quite easily if I put myself in the place of the crew whose ship just sunk.
In the event that after seeing the In The heart of The Seatrailer, you thought the film was based on a different famous book, namely Moby Dick by Herman Melville, you’re not alone. For it is the same 1820 event that inspired Melville to write his famous story, first published in 1851.
I’m quite sure I’ll still love whales after watching In The Heart Of The Sea, how ever ‘bad’ this one particular whale may be.
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…
