DUMBO (2019): New Trailer From Tim Burton – Starring Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito…

Directed by Tim Burton, Dumbo is Disney’s re-telling of the story of an elephant ridiculed for his big ears. Ears he’s in fact able to use as wings and fly.

Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Michael Keaton and Danny DeVito star…

To my surprise his trailer didn’t move me. It is only a teaser so there’s time. I do remember the Dumbo story though only vaguely. Perhaps the next Dumbo trailer will have me more excited, the way the Cinderella (2015 ) trailer did.

Dumbo Release Dates: March 29th, 2019 (US & UK)…

FANTASTIC BEASTS 2 – THE CRIMES OF GRINDENWALD (2018): New ‘First Look Trailer’ From Eddie Redmayne, Collin Farell,  Katherine Waterston…

Fantastic Beasts 2 – The Crimes of Grindenwald is the second instalment of the ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them‘ series.

Directed by David Yates; starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Ezra Miller, the story is all about the ongoing adventures of Newt Scamander….

I’m still yet to watch the first movie because fantasy isn’t my favourite genre. Nevertheless, it looks as though a lot of footage from the first movie has been used for this trailer. It could just be the general look of the films and the fact that Redmayne’s character appears to sport the same outfit at all times. You know, like Bart Simpson.

It could also be that the marketing people wanted to release something exactly a year before the first movie but they had absolutely nothing to show and so they opted to use old footage. That’s probably it.

I’m sure I’ll eventually make time for these movies. Especially since I put off watching Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and actually rather enjoyed it when I saw it, finally.

Fantastic Beasts 2 – The Crimes Of Grindenwald Release Dates: November 16th, 2018 (US & UK)…

Written and directed by Dan Gilroy of Nightcrawler (2014)Roman J, Israel, Esq. stars Denzel Washington, Colin Farrell, Carmen Ejogo and Shelley Hennig in a story about a driven, idealistic defence attorney. One who, as a result of a tumultuous series of events, finds himself in a crisis that leads to extreme action…

Of course I’m in! Washington and Farrell,  such a promising pairing – and thats before one even mentions Mr. Gilroy, the man responsible for the movie that really should have resulted in an Oscar nomination for Jake Gyllenhaal.

THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER (2017): New Trailer From Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Alicia Silverstone, Barry Keoghan…

Co-written and directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, The Killing of a Sacred Deer stars Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Alicia Silverstone and Barry Keoghan. At the heart of the story is a charismatic surgeon who’s forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice after his life starts to fall apart and  the behaviour of a teenage boy he has taken under his wing turns sinister…

I remember enjoying The Lobster (2015), – the last Yorgos Lanthimos movie I watched. Therefore, I’m thinking and hoping  that  this is unlikely to disappoint. There’s also the wonderfully full beard that Colin Farrell is sporting. I at least need to look at that a little more.

The Killing Of A Sacred Deer Release Dates: October 20th, 2017 (UK); November 3rd 2017 (UK)…

THE BEGUILED (2017): New Trailer Starring Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning…

In The Beguiled, Colin Farrell plays a wounded Union soldier who cons his way into the hearts of the women in a Confederate girls’ boarding school. Soon enough, the women turn against each other but then they get smart and turn on him. Directed by Sofia Coppola; other acting talent includes Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning and Angourie Rice…

I find this trailer promising, especially because of the cast. I want to be even more excited but after The Bling Ring (2013) – the last Sofia Coppola directed movie I saw which I did not enjoy as much as expected,  I’ll wait and see;  in a very calm and perfectly balanced manner. Also this is a remake of the 1971 movie of the same name starring Clint Eastwood.

The Beguiled Release Dates: June 23rd, 2017 (UK); June 30th, 2017 (US)…

THE LOBSTER (2015): It’s Good & You May Be Surprised…

Starring Colin Farrell, and Rachel Weisz, The Lobster is a sci-fi/ comedy/ romance set in a world that looks like earth but there are very different rules that govern how to live. One rule being, you have to live in a couple. If single you’re sent to a hotel where you’ll have 45 days to find a partner. Should you fail to do so, you get turned into an animal of your choosing.

‘Delightfully nuts’ were the words that came to mind when I first saw the trailer for The Lobster. After experiencing The Lobster I’d say that my words were accurate.

There is one thing I didn’t expect and that is just how dark the film actually gets. I found myself very happily amused from the start to around half way through. Then the darkness sets in and I basically didn’t laugh again until very close to the end.

The film’s trailer led me to expect more humour than, dare I say, horror. So I found myself somewhat disappointed with the end result. Not to say that The Lobster isn’t good because it’s true what many critics have said, the writing and the concept is original. The film is generally well executed and the movie is funny. I simply just had more fun during the funny moments and much less fun during the dark phase.

The people who love horror and comedy, maybe in equal measure are the one who will have the best time. My favourite thing about writer/ director Yorgos Lanthimos’ movie is that you can hardly accurately guess where the plot will take you next and that, as I’m sure you know is very rare indeed.

Also starring John C. Reilly, Lea Seydoux, Olivia Coleman, Ben Whishaw and Ashley Jensen, watch The Lobster for the humour and the element of difference. Just don’t expect to laugh throughout. If I’m really honest, there actually isn’t that much stopping me from properly labelling The Lobster as a ‘comedy/ horror’ film. However, I am generally quite the wuss, so…

Have you seen it? What did you think?

FANTASTIC BEASTS & WHERE TO FIND THEM (2016): New Trailer Starring Eddie Redmayne & Colin Farrell

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them (2016), Colin Farrell

All J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and Wizard fans can rejoice, for there is a new trailer to excite you all…

Teaser trailer 1

Teaser trailer 2

Comic Con trailer

Written by Rowling, directed by David Yates and featuring a cast that includes Eddie Redmayne, Colin Farrell, Ezra Miller and Jon Voight, I’m intrigued by these first two teasers. The first, though a tad long winded, the second one is fantastic.

I’m also hoping that fans of good film will have a great time alongside Rowling fanatics.

THE LOBSTER (2015): Trailer Of The Week

Colin Farrell’s latest…

Delightfully nuts seems like the perfect phrase. I can’t wait to see how things turn out for Farrell’s character. Though, perhaps the title of the movie may have given it away.

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, the rest of the cast includes Olivia Coleman, Rachel Weisz, John C. Reilly, Ashley Jensen, Lea Seydoux and Ben Whishaw.

Personally, I’d want to be a Snow Leopard. You?

Release Dates: October 16th 2015 (US & UK)

Happy The Lobster 🙂
