Outlaw King is a new David Mackenzie directed historical drama about Robert the Bruce, the great 14th Century Scottish figure whose bravery and cunning defeated and repelled the much larger and better equipped occupying English army.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chris Pine, Florence Pugh and Billy Howle are among the key cast…
I’m interested because of Pine and Taylor-Johnson. I’m intrigued by Robert the Bruce’s story as well as being partial to a Scottish accent.
Tony Curran, Alastair Mackenzie, Duncan Lacroix and Stephen Dillane also star.
As good a film as Wonder Woman is, I’m quite sure that I adore the trailer more.
This is probably the first time I’ve said I love a trailer more than I love the film, but without really meaning that the film is bad. The pace of this movie was OK and the humour was fun but there’s something about the film’s initial trailer that I just cant forget about – because it was super.
Of course the exceptionally chosen, perfectly rousing trailer music coupled with great editing, storytelling and visuals had much to do with it. Yet Wonder Woman’s crime, for me at least may be that the wonderful high I experienced as I watched the trailer simply wasn’t constantly present throughout the film. Not that I’m saying that would have been a great idea, mind you.
It’s just that there’s just no denying, for me, the noticeable absence of said high by the end of this movie. Instead of taking my hands to the air whilst silently yelping, so as not to annoy my neighbours – as I did the first time I saw the trailer; at the end of this movie, all I could say as teh credits started to roll was ‘It’s not a bad film‘.
Gadot is really great. She’s beautiful, strong, very capable and in my mind remains my big sister. You probably already have but I’ll still say it all the same, watch it because it’s good.
Fantasy/adventure, A Wrinkle In Time is a story about a young girl called Meg. Meg is sent into space with her brother and a friend by three peculiar beings.
Together they must venture there to find Meg’s scientist father after his sudden disappearance. Directed by Ava DuVernay; A Wrinkle In Time stars Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
Reasons to watch this movie include the story, which is completely new to me, the magic, the talented cast and the beautiful visuals. I’m liking Oprah Winfrey as the voice of the narrator, as well as the hint of a vibe similar to Alice In Wonderland and The Wizard Of Oz.
Mindy Kaling, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Peña, Bellamy Young and André Holland also star.
I hadn’t really paid much attention to many of the Wonder Woman news headlines ever since it was announced that Gal Gadot had won the role. Hearing about the resultant backlash concerning her casting only worked to make me impatient for the day when she hopefully gets to silence all her critics with a brilliant performance…
Trailer 1 (Comic-Con)
I like the Comic-Con trailer more than I do the one for Justice League (2017) – a trailer that was also released on the same day.
The music, visuals and general ‘badassery’ just speaks to me more. Though not just because the Amazon princess and I are both young ladies.
It crossed my mind that Wonder Woman is kind of a female Captain America. I say this initially because of the shield. I’m sure there are probably other reasons but I’m completely new to this story so I’d just be guessing. Lastly, I’d love for this Patty Jenkins directed film to be as powerful in its ability to silence the critics of Gadot as Casino Royale (2006) was for critics of Daniel Craig’s casting as James Bond.
Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright also star.
Based on a true story, The Finest Hours tells the story of a group of men whose jobs will remind you that what you do for a living probably isn’t that bad. At least that’s what went through my mind…
A rescue mission at sea is at the centre of The Finest Hours. Starring Chris Pine, Holliday Grainger, Ben Foster, Casey Affleck, Kyle Gallner, and Eric Bana, I’m expectingplenty of drama, action and I’m sure, breaks of of several kinds.
Craig Gillespie, director of one of my favourite Ryan Gosling movies, Lars & The Real Girl (2007) is the man in charge.
The new trailer for the latest Star Trek movie just arrived…
I didn’t find myself particularly enthused after trailer one, on account of the peculiar music choice and me generally not being a ‘trekkie’ / massive Star Trek fan. However, trailer two is better and I’m certain trekkies will likeit even more than I do.
Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba, Zachary Quinto, Sofia Boutella and Simon Pegg star whilst Justin Lin directs.
