Matthias Schoenaerts, Connie Britton and Bruce Dern are the stars of new Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre directed drama The Mustang.

The Mustang has Schoenaerts playing Roman Coleman, a violent convict who’s given the chance to participate in a rehabilitation therapy program that involves the training of wild mustangs…

I really like this cast. Especially Schoenaerts and Britton. It’s great to see Schoenaerts, one of my absolute favourite actors in a leading role in an American movie.  

Naturally and in part because of Robert Redford’s involvement, this trailer has  me thinking of The Horse Whisperer (1998). Remember that movie? The one that introduced many to a talented young Scarlett Johansson?

Josh Stewart, Jason Mitchell, Gideon Adlon, Jasmeet Baduwalia, Kelly Richardson and Devin Marigny also star.

The Mustang Release Dates: March 15th, 2019 (US)…

THE LAND OF STEADY HABITS (2018): The Things I Liked…

The Land Of Steady Habits is the story of Anders (Ben Mendelsohn), a man who retires from his finance job and leaves his wife in order to renew his lust for life.

Things don’t quite go as smoothly as hoped for poor Anders. Directed by Nicole Holofcener, this story feels very real and true. It features a fair number of lost and hurt / hurting people trying, as well as others who don’t appear to be trying especially hard. Outside of Anders, whose journey intrigued me, I wanted to know more about why each person was really behaving the way they were but we never get to know about what makes up the other lost and hurting people in Anders’s circle. Certainly not as much as my curious mind desired anyway.

The unexpectedness of the humour in Holfcener’s film, the good performances and the unpredictability of the very human story is why I liked it. In addition to confirming that Mendelsohn’s American accent isn’t bad, The Land Of Steady Habits reminds me of how invaluable good family and friendships are, especially when things don’t quite work out.

Give it a chance if the protagonist’s situation intrigues you. It’s a little bit of a slow burn – like life can be sometimes, but not slow enough that I wanted to stop before the end.

PROFESSOR MARSTON & THE WONDER WOMAN (2017): New Trailer From Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall, Connie Britton, JJ Feild…

Written and directed by Angela Robinson, Professor Marston & The Wonder Women is the story of the unconventional life of Dr. William Marston; a Harvard psychologist and inventor who helped invent the modern lie detector test and in 1941 created Wonder Woman…

Dr. Marston was intriguingly unconventional and seventy six years ago he created the character in 2017’s biggest blockbuster movie. So, of course I have to watch. Especially considering how very promising and interesting this trailer looks.

Lastly, how beautiful is the music in this trailer.

Professor Marston & the Wonder Women Release Dates: October 27th, 2017 (US)…

BEATRIZ AT DINNER (2017): New Trailer From Salma Hayek, Connie Britton, Chloë Sevigny, John Lithgow…

I am a big Salma Hayek fan and I just couldn’t be happier to see her in a role that looks as great as the one of Beatriz in Beatriz At Dinner. Also starring Connie Britton, Chloë Sevigny, John Lithgow and Jay Duplass, Hayek’s Beatriz is a holistic medicine practitioner who attends a wealthy client’s dinner party after her car breaks down. And so begins very thought provoking dialogue…

Directed by Miguel Arteta, this great trailer has me very impatient to take in all of writer Mike White’s words.

Beatriz At Dinner Release Dates: June 9th, 2017 (US)…

AMERICAN ULTRA (2015): Chaotic & Fun Adventure Ahead

I’m hoping that  Kristen Stewart and Jessie Eisenberg’s new film, American Ultra ends up delivering all the thrills suggested in it’s fun looking mad and chaotic trailer.

Directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X (2012), the film appears to be one of those stoner comedy / adventure movie types; kind of like one of my favourites, Pineapple Express (2008) – how great that would be.

I’m looking forward to seeing both Stewart and Eisenberg in different types of roles than I’m used to. However I might just be more excited about the characters played by John Leguizamo, Topher Grace and Connie Britton.

Happy American Ultra 🙂
