Patty Jenkins returns to direct the sequel to Wonder Woman (2017), Wonder Woman 1984

Pedro Pascal, Gal Gadot, Chris Pine and Robin Wright are among the key cast…

Interesting…

How is Steve alive? Why 1984? This trailer isn’t bad but why did I think it would be as thrilling as the fantastic trailer for Wonder Woman (2017)?

Right now I only have the answer for one of those questions.

Kristen Wiig, Connie Nielsen, Spencer Trinwith, Jamal Alkhaldi, Chris Silcox, Rick Kelvin Branch, Justin Sisk and Thomas Clay Strickland also star.

Wonder Woman 1984 Release Dates: June 5th, 2020 (US & UK)…

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.

Outlaw King Release Dates: November 9th, 2018 (US)…

WONDER WOMAN (2017): Good…

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 movie’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 with that said, Wonder Woman’s crime, for me, may be that the wonderful high I experienced as I watched the trailer from beginning to end wasn’t constantly present throughout the film. Not that I’m saying that would have been a great idea. Yet the truth remains there’s no denying, for me at least, 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 post trailer viewing), at the end of this Jenkins’s movie I said out loud, ‘It’s not a bad film‘.

Gadot is really great. She’s beautiful, strong, very capable and in my mind, 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, 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.

A Wrinkle In Time Release Dates: March 9th, 2018 (US), 23rd March, 2018 (UK)…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Wonder Woman (2017).


I haven’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)

Trailer 2

I definitely 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. 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. I’m so very ready.

Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright also star.

Wonder Woman Release Dates: June 2nd, 2017 (US & UK); June 7th, 2017 (FR);  June 15th, 2017 (GER)…

From the writer known for Sicario (2015) and Sons Of Anarchy comes Hell Or High Water, a new movie with Chris Pine and Ben Foster as two very desperate brothers in West texas…

I’ve probably seen enough bank robbery movies for this life time.So it’s the relationship between the two brothers and the catalyst(s) that lead to their desperate situations that intrigues me most.

Directed by David Mackenzie; Jeff Bridges, Dale Dickey and Katy Mixon also star.

Hell Or High Water Release Dates: Aug 12th, 2016 (US)…

THE FINEST HOURS (2016): New Trailer Starring Chris Pine, Casey Affleck & Eric Bana

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 expecting plenty 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 Finest Hours Release Date(s): January 29th, 2016 (US); February 19th, 2016 (UK)…

The new trailer for the latest Star Trek movie just arrived…

Trailer 1

Trailer 2

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.

Release Date (s): July 22nd (US & UK)…
