Piercing is the Nicolas Pesce directed thriller / horror about a man with a plan. A man with a plan to check into a hotel, call an escort service and kill an unsuspecting prostitute; and all after kissing his wife and baby goodbye.

Key cast includes Christopher Abbott, Mia Wasikowska, Laia Costa…

The weirdness of the trailer grabbed my attention. What Piercing has to say about a man such as the one in this story, and how he came to have  a plan such as his, that’s what has me most curious.

Probably unsurprisingly, this movie makes me want to re-watch American Psycho (2000).

Wendell Pierce, Olivia Bond, Marin Ireland, Dakota Lustick and Maria Dizzia also star.

Piercing Release Dates: February 1st, 2019 (US)…

Starring Natalie Portman and written / directed Brady Corbet, Vox Lux is a new drama / musical about the unusual set of circumstances that end up bringing unexpected success to a pop star.

Jude Law, Christopher Abbott, Willem Dafoe and Jennifer Ehle also star.

I’m drawn to what looks like the humour and kookiness of this movie. I also just want to see the talented Portman perform in a role I didn’t exactly expect her to play.

Vox Lux Release Dates: December 7th, 2018 (2018)…

Sweet Virginia is the story of a former rodeo champ who befriends a man with violent tendencies. Directed by Jamie M. Dagg; Jon Bernthal, Imogen Poots and Christopher Abbott star…

I’m in because of this trailer’s intriguingly dark quality. I’ve also encountered Bernthal’s face in quite a few trailer thumbnails recently and I just want to to see something else great that he’s in so I can stop thinking of him as the character he plays in The Wolf Of Wall Street (2013) and We Are Your Friends (2015). My senses also tell me that there’s a potentially great face-off coming between Bernthal and Abbott’s characters.

Sweet Virginia Release Dates: November 17th, 2017 (US)…

WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT (2016): New Trailer Starring Tina Fey & Margot Robbie

There’s a new Tina Fey comedy and it’s not Sisters (2015). Starring Fey, Alfred Molina, Margot Robbie, Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton, Whiskey, Tango Foxtrot tells the story of Kim Barker (Fey), a US journalist stationed in Afghanistan and Pakistan…

I really must give full points for the music in this trailer. It does a great job of setting the tone. Generally, I’m most excited about the humour which I think will work as an antidote to the tension-filled Kilo Two Bravo (2014)another war region movie – though certainly not a comedy.

My fingers crossed the film works, especially  since the last comedy set in Afghanistan (Rock the Kasbah (2015) apparently didn’t do so well.

Release Date (s): March 4th, 2016 (US & UK)…

James White is a promising new movie starring Christopher Abbot, Cynthia Nixon, Ron Livingston and Scott Mescudi. The protagonist is a young man struggling with self destructive behaviour…

I, like many have enjoyed the work of both Abbott and Nixon in their previous hit TV shows, Girls and Sex And The City, respectively. That fact combined with this intriguing trailer and Josh Mond’s direction… Well…

Release date(s): November 13th 2015 (US)

Happy James White 🙂
