Anna is writer /director Luc Besson’s story of Anna Poliatova; a striking beauty with a secret that will unleash her indelible strength and skill. Skills to become one of the world’s most feared government assassins.

Key cast includes Sasha Luss, Cillian Murphy, Helen Mirren, Luke Evans…

I wish that the weapon sound effects in this trailer didn’t sound quite so exaggerated. Especially for the moment at 1:10 when the neck slicing using two plate halves happens.

Regardless of my one gripe, this seems quite promising and I look forward to finding out how Anna compares to hit female assassin TV show Killing Eve (2018), Angelina Jolie’s Salt (2010) and Charlize Theron’s Atomic Blonde (2017).

Lera Abova, Alexander Petrov, Nikita Pavlenko, Anna Krippa, Aleksey Maslodudov, Eric Godon, Ivan Franek and Adrian Canalso star.

Anna Release Dates: June 21st, 2019 (US)…

THE PARTY (2017): New Trailer From Kristin Scott Thomas, Timothy Spall, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Patricia Clarkson…

The Party is a new drama / comedy that starts as a celebration and ends with blood on the floor. The film’s very talented cast includes Kristin Scott Thomas, Timothy Spall, Emily Mortimer, Cillian Murphy, Patricia Clarkson…

Watching this rather good trailer reminded me so much of how much I love this kind of film. The kind where adults are stuck in a relatively confined space and they’re forced to resolve any issues they may have with each other, usually resulting in brilliant comic moments. In case my description doesn’t paint a clear enough picture, watch Roman Polanski’s Carnage (2011), a film with great dialogue and a truly brilliant cast, not unlike this one.

Written and directed by Sally Potter; Bruno Ganz also stars.

The Party Release Dates: October 13th, 2017 (UK)…

A shootout between two gangs in a deserted Boston warehouse, in 1978 is what happens in director Ben Wheatley’s new movie Free Fire. Starring Cillian Murphy, Armie  Hammer, Brie Larson and Sharlto Copley, we hopefully have a rather stylish movie on the way – specially if we’re to believe the well edited trailer before us…

Right Away, Guy Ritchie’s style of film making came to mind as this trailer played – from Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels (1998) to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) and beyond. I’m just hoping that Wheatley’s movie is as good as the style and great stories that inspired it. Bring on the thrills great camera work, story and all else, no pressure.

What great choices Mr Copley makes in the roles he plays. So many pleasant surprises…

Michael Smiley, Jack Reynor, Babou Ceesay and Sam Riley also star.

Free Fire Release Dates: 2017 (US); March 31st, 2017 (UK)…

The first trailer for Dunkirk, the new movie directed by the rightly celebrated writer/ director, Christopher Nolan has landed…

Teaser trailer

Trailer 1

Generally speaking, war movies aren’t my favourite genre of film but I’ll probably try anything once if Nolan is at the helm. This teaser trailer is great tease for the first look. A look that left my heart was threatening to exit my chest by the end. Trailer one reminds me of what makes great trailers.

The stars of the movie include Nolan regulars Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy. Then there’s Mark Rylance and Harry Styles. What a gift it must be for one’s first movie to be directed someone at the level of of Christopher Nolan. If I were in the position of Mr Styles,  I don’t think  I could ever get over such a thing regardless of how  small my part may be.

Dunkirk Release Dates: July 19th, 2017 (FR); July 21st, 2017 (US & UK); July 27th, 2017 (GER)…

Set in WII, Anthropoid, Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan’s new movie is based on the true story of the mission to assassinate one of Adolf Hitler’s generals, Reinhard Heydrich…

The trailer is good so I’m intrigued. But watching? That will happen because of Cillian Murphy. I’d also like to see Jamie Dornan in something good.

Toby Jones, Charlotte Le Bon and Anna Geislerová also feature.

Anthropoid Release Dates: August 12th, 2016 (US)…

IN THE HEART OF THE SEA (2015): New Trailer From Chris Hemsworth & Cillian Murphy

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy and Ben Whishaw, In The heart of The Sea tells the story of the the 1820 sinking of Whaleship Essex in the pacific Ocean…

In The heart Of The Sea (2015) Trailer 

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 Sea trailer, 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.

Release Date (s): December 11th, 2015 (US), December 26th, 2015 (UK)…

INCEPTION (2010): Only If Other Films Would Stay Away From The Music

Part of what makes Christopher Nolan’s Inception (2010) so very good, is Hans Zimmer’s brilliant musical score.

Unfortunately, since the the film’s release, seemingly far lesser movies keep using it. I say ‘seemingly far lesser’ because I can’t actually see myself ever watching any of the offending titles.

I admit, I’m probably too attached to the original film and music, but all the trailers I’ve seen that use the Inception score really don’t look very promising. If they did, I wouldn’t be writing this.

You only have to watch the following Airborne (2012) trailer to see and understand.

Eeewwww indeed! To help get that gross Airborne taste out of your mouth, here are two fantastic Inception trailers…
