Starring Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, Emma Thompson and Adam Sandler; The Meyerowitz Stories – New & Selected is the latest from writer / director Noah Baumbach. Stiller, Hoffman, Sandler and Thompson play members of an estranged family that gathers in New York for an event celebrating the artistic work of their father…

I particularly like the idea of Stiller, Sandler and Hoffman performing together. I’m also in for the family dynamics that’ll undoubtedly result in interesting conflict; not that I like to see family members fight, you understand…

KUNG FU PANDA 3 (2016): For The Overwhelming Cuteness

I’m certain that children will find Kung Fu Panda 3 very entertaining indeed. Just as I’m sure that the movie has a lovely message about fulfilling your destiny, doing the right thing, family, friendship, etc. etc. I for one, watched Kung Fu Panda 3 in part for the humour. The story is good too but mostly, the cuteness of the animals was my biggest draw – and on that basis the movie delivered.

Bryan Cranston’s Li voice and the ‘egg laying out of fear’ joke/ sequence are also key highlights.

Jack Black, Bryan Cranson, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, J.K. Simmons Seth Rogen, Jackie Chan and Lucy Liu are among the stars.

Watch it for the reasons above.

Just when I thought I’d have to wait until the next Minion movie for a serious overload of cuteness…

I’ve seen pandas in real life and let me say, yes they are very cute but pandas can also be incredibly boring! Sitting around and eating bamboo all day long. So… thank heavens for overactive imaginations – the result of which, in this case is the above really fun trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3.

I love that the Kung Fu Panda movies are about finding your true self as well as being funny and cute – something I’m always happy to get more of.

Jack Black, Lucy Liu, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Brian Cranston and Dustin Hoffman are providing just some of the key voices.

Release Date (s): January 29th, 2016, March 11th, 2016 (UK)…

THE PROGRAM (2015): New Trailer For Lance Armstrong Doping Scandal Biopic

Ben Foster, Chris O’Dowd and Guillaume Canet are the stars of the Stephen Frears latest. The Program is the film adaptation of former road racing cyclist, Lance Armstrong’s fall from grace.

I actually wasn’t particularly enthusiastic about the first trailer when it was released a few months ago. Reasons included doubts as to whether Foster actually sounds like Armstrong. I’m still not convinced that he really does but this new trailer is definitely better…

I don’t feel quite quite ready for a movie version of a story that was only recently told by the documentary, The Armstrong Lie (2013). However, I’m presuming it will be interesting to see dramatisations of events we’ve so far only been told about. Foster will likely do a good job of portraying Armstrong even if I feel like he didn’t get the voice quite right.

I’m most looking forward to seeing Irish actor Chris O’Dowd excel in a serious dramatic role. Until then…

Dustin Hoffman, Jesse Plemons Elaine Cassidy and Bryan Greenberg also star.

Release Date (s): October 16th 2015 (UK & US)

Happy The Program 🙂
