Set in the summer of 1947, Dr Faraday, a respectable country doctor is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall where his mother once worked. Little does Faraday know that he’s about to find out just how closely and terrifyingly the family of his new patient’s story is about to become entwined with his own.

From director Lenny Abrahamson, The Little Stranger is based on the novel by Lucinda Coxon and Sarah Waters. Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Charlotte Rampling and Will Poulter star…

The mystery intrigues me. Yet it’s mainly Poulter and his character that have me most interested.

The Little Stranger Release Dates: August 31st, 2018 (US)…

Peter Rabbit is the film adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s classic tale of a rebellious rabbit determined to sneak into a farmer’s vegetable garden. Will Gluck directs while James Corden, Daisy Ridley, Margot Robbie, Domhnall Gleeson…

I did grow up reading one or two of the Peter Rabbit books but I only remember the stories vaguely. My curiosity about how much I loved the books and the general cuteness of all the animals will have me tuning in. And… I’ve always enjoyed stories about mischievous and clever animals.

Peter Rabbit Release Dates: February 9th, 2018 (US); March 16th, 2018 (UK)…

Written and directed by Darren Aronofsky; Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer and Ed Harris are the stars of Mother!, a mystery / horror film about uninvited guests that disrupt a couple’s tranquil existence…

I will be brave enough and see this because a part of me wants to start liking scary movies – and I love all the film makers involved; Lawrence and Aronovsky because of everything they do, Bardem because of Skyfall (2012), Harris because of The Truman Show (1998) / A History Of Violence (2005), etc., etc…

I also wouldn’t mind hearing more of the beautiful / haunting music in this trailer.

Other cast includes Jovan Adepo, Kristen Wiig, Amanda Warren…

GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN (2017): New Trailer From Domhnall Gleeson & Margot Robbie About A.A.Milne, Creator Of Winnie The Pooh…

Goodbye Christopher Robin stars Domhnall Gleeson, Margot Robbie and Kelly MacDonald. It’s the new Simon Curtis directed movie that tells us the behind-the-scenes story of the life of celebrated author A.A. Milne; particularly how his son C.R. Milne inspired the creation of the Winnie the Pooh stories…

I’ll be tuning in because I’m a fan of Pooh and friends. I also just want to watch a film about a father’s great love for his son.

This trailer has a dream-like feel. I also get the sense that Margot Robbie’s character is a ghost; no idea if that was intentional since I know extremely little about A.A. Milne’s life, at this point.

The latest Tom Cruise movie American Made is a 1980s set story about a pilot who lands 2 jobs; one for the CIA and the other as a drug runner in the south. Directed by Doug Liman, Domhnall Gleeson, Caleb Landry Jones and Jesse Plemons also star…

I’m tuning in because this trailer looks good and I’m excited to see Cruise play a man of such questionable character. I also want to watch because it’s Tom Cruise, a.k.a great actor and excellent talk show host guest, especially on The Graham Norton Show. I’m also a massive Graham Norton fan. I digress.

American Made Release Dates: August 25th, 2017 (UK); August 29th, 2017 (US)…

THE REVENANT (2015): Great Movie, The Trailer Did Not Lie

The Revenant (2015): Leonardo DiCaprio
The Revenant (2015): Leonardo DiCaprio

Alejandro González Iñárritu is the director of The Revenant, a much talked about movie with a brilliant cast. Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hardy, Will Poulter and Domhnall Gleeson to name just a few.

In addition to the talented film making team, all anyone really needs to know before watching is that The Revenant is a tale of vengeance, the very highly justifiable kind.

Iñárritu is well known for his innovative shooting style and the way in which The Revenant is shot is no different. Not to say that you’re going to find anyone appear to be levitating as is the case in Birdman (2014) – Iñárritu’s previous Oscar winning movie. However, as the film’s magnificent teaser trailer revealed back in July 2015, you’re going to experience some very impressive things that you probably haven’t experienced before. There’s also the original musical score and beautiful wintery cinematography.

If all I’ve mentioned so far still isn’t reason enough to watch, there’s the possibility that The Revenant may just result in a long overdue Best Actor Oscar win for Leonardo DiCaprio. I mean, did you see the standing ovasion he received at the Golden Globes when his name was called for Best Performance By An Actor In A Motion Picture (Drama), for this very movie?

Bring on February 28th 2016, an Oscars presentation that will be interesting for several reasons.

Epic looking and with great trailer music, especially at the beginning. Something tells me that writer / director J.J. Abrams is going to make serious fans very proud indeed.

Time for me to get moving and watching the previous films if I don’t want to be completely clueless for what is likely the biggest film event of the year if not of all time.

UNBROKEN (2014): A Note On How to Achieve The Impossible, Starring Jack O’Connell

When I saw the trailer for Unbroken in 2014, I became very excited; first because I love Angelina Jolie. Second because Jack O’Connell is one of my recent favourite Actors (he was brilliant in Starred Up (20013) and lastly, the Louis Zamperini story.

Directed by Jolie and with British O’Connell in the starring role, Unbroken is the story of a man (Zamperini) who overcame one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after another.

Zamperini’s story of physical and mental endurance began well before the near fatal plane crash in WW2 that changed the course of his life.

It is in fact the very vital relationship he had with his family, namely his big brother, Pete, that really helped prepare him for every extraordinary thing he was  able to accomplish in the years that followed.

That goodness for the people who add immeasurable value in the way they encourage and believe in our capabilities, especially when we don’t.

The screenplay was penned by the Cohen brothers, Joel and Ethan, so clearly the film had everything going for it from writers, cast, crew and beyond.

The performances that stick in my mind come from O’Connell, of corse and Miyavi who plays the character of Sergeant Watanabe. Garrett Hedlund, Domhnall Gleeson and Jai Courtney also do a great job

If you haven’t already watched Unbroken, know that it’s a brilliant story of extraordinary strength of the human spirit. One that is so well told that you’ll be glad you had the chance to learn about Mr Zamperini.

As if I needed more reasons to love Angelina Jolie!

Happy Unbroken 🙂
