In writer / director Gareth Evans’s new thriller Apostle, Dan Stevens is Thomas Richardson, a man on a mission to rescue his sister after she’s kidnapped by a religious cult.
Other key cast includes Michael Sheen, Kristine Froseth…
I didn’t know I needed a promising Dan Stevens film in my life until I saw this trailer. Oddly enough, perhaps even more than the above trailer, I found myself rather impressed by the special effect on the ‘t’ of Apostle at the very end. You didn’t miss it did you?
Lucy Boynton, Bill Milner, Mark Lewis Jones and Ross O’Hennessy also star.
Written and directed by Brian Crano, Dan Stevens and Rebecca Hall star in Permission, a comedy drama abouta woman soon to be proposed to.
The same woman also listens to a friend who suggests that she should date other men before committing to forever with her her boyfriend…
The precise nature of my thoughts when I read the synopsis went something like: ‘Oooooh… this sure isn’t going to end well… probably.’ Nevertheless though, I’d still quite love to be surprised, for entertainment value purposes.
Gina Gershon, François Arnaud, Raúl Castillo, Michelle Hurst and Morgan Spector also star.
The last time Disney had a live action movie made of one of their fairy tales, I was beyond thrilled. Thrilled with the trailer, thrilled with the cast list and absolutely delighted with the end result. The movie I’m talking about is of course, Kenneth Branagh’sCinderella (2015).
For me personally, Cinderella was always going to be a hard act to follow. Bill Condon’s Beauty & The Beast is a movie I was also looking forward to. However, to be fair, Beauty & The Beast doesn’t quite have the likes of acting queen Cate Blanchett on the cast list. So you can imagine that my enthusiasm just wasn’t the same. Additionally, the acting and singing weren’t bad but as a non-fan of musicals, all the singing probably didn’t help me appreciate the film more. I really did enjoy the romance towards the end and I think the movie was alright, overall. Without a doubt though, my preference is certainly Cinderella. I imagine that big fans of Beauty & The Beast rather enjoyed this remake of the fairy tale about a monstrous-looking prince and a young woman who fall in love. Maybe they even loved it as much as I did Cinderella.
I understand that Aladdin is coming next. I’ll of course eventually watch it even though it is a musical.
Marshall is the story of Thurgood Marshall, the first African American Supreme Court Justice. Starring Chadwick Boseman, Dan Stevens, Josh Gad, Jussie Smollett and Kate Hudson, director Reginald Hudlin takes us through one of Marshall’s career-defining cases…
I’m excited because Boseman is good and Marshall the man is interesting because of his achievements. Also, what I’ve seen so far in this trailer is reminding me of the undeniable cool factor as embodied by Denzel Washington’s character in American Gangster (2007) – a movie I need to re-watch again soon.
The trailer for Norman, the latest movie starring Dan Stevens, Richard Gere, Michael Sheen and Steve Buscemi looks peculiar. Witten and directed by Joseph Cedar, Norman is the story of Norman Oppenheimer, a small time operator who befriends a young politician at a low point in his life. Three years later, when the politician becomes an influential world leader, Norman’s life dramatically changes for better and worse…
May the changes that happen in Norman’s life make for very interesting viewing because the cast is good. I’m also quite curious about what it really takes to be a so-called ‘operator.’
Charlotte Gainsbourg, Lior Ashkenazi and Jonathan Avigdori also star.
Today’s trailer definitely isn’t the kind of thing I’d been expecting from Oscar winning actress Anne Hathaway. Still, Colossal, a Nacho Vigalondo written and directed movie about a woman (Hathaway) who finds that severe catastrophic events are in some way connected to her present mental breakdown could be absolutely great. Even though the following trailer which also stars Jason Sudeikis and Dan Stevens hasn’t quite managed to convince me just yet…
I’ve decided that I’m going to trust in Hathaway’s choices and hope for the very best. Other cast includes Austin Stowell, Tim Blake Nelson, Miho Suzuki and Rukiya Bernard.
Starring Dan Stevens as Prince Adam / Beast, Emma Watson as Belle and Luke Evans as Gaston, the new Beauty & The Beast trailer is finally here…
I’ll be watching this simply because I love the animated version. Interestingly though, I don’t currently sense the magical feel the live action version of Cinderella (2015) gave me after I watched that specific trailer. May the magic be there with the finished product of this new adaptation.
