The Old Man & The Gun is the true story of Forrest Tucker and his unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public.

Directed by David Lowery; Robert Redford, Sissy Spacek, Elisabeth Moss and John David Washington star…

Redford’s character looks so adorable, charming and fun to watch. Just how different this film will be to other bank robber stories, that is my question and I’m looking forward to finding out.

THE SEAGULL (2018): New Trailer From Saoirse Ronan, Anette Bening, Elisabeth Moss, Corey Stoll…

Based on Russian Playwright Anton Chekov’s famous play The Seagull. Saoirse Ronan, Anette Bening, Elisabeth Moss and Corey Stoll star while Michael Mayer directs.

The Seagull tells the story of ageing actress Irina who visits her brother Pjotr and her son Konstantin on a country estate and brings Trigorin, a successful novelist, with her. What follows is the chaos of romantic and artistic conflicts between four characters…

All I knew about The Seagull until now is that it’s a famous play by Anton Chekov, one that many great actors have been delighted about having a part in. Knowing that as I do, I find myself a little underwhelmed after seeing this trailer. I was perhaps expecting greater dramatics. Maybe the finished product will provide what I imagine to be missing.

Billy Howle, Michael Zegen and Jon Tenney also star.

The Seagull Release Dates: May 11th, 2018 (US)…

THE SQUARE (2017): New Trailer From Elisabeth Moss, Claes Bang, Dominic West…

Written and directed by Ruben Östlund, The Square is a satirical drama about the sense of community, moral courage and the affluent person’s need for egocentricity in an increasingly uncertain world…

Interesting synopsis, I must say. The square seems to have a similar quality to The One I Love (2014), an Elisabeth Moss movie I like. It’s perhaps the slightly crazed energy both films seem to share that had me linking the two.

The Square Release Dates: March 16th, 2018 (UK)…

Starring Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts and Elisabeth Moss, Chuck is the story of the life of heavyweight boxer Chuck Wepner; the fighter that inspired Sylvester Stallone to write the Rocky movies…

I’m certainly not a major boxing fan since I haven’t yet watched any of the Rocky films. But I am interested in the story of the man who inspired them. Also, this looks like a great role for Schreiber.

Chuck Release Dates: May 5th, 2017 (US)…

THE FREE WORLD (2016): New Trailer From Elisabeth Moss, Boyd Holbrook, Octavia Spencer…

In director Jason Lew’s latest movie The Free world, Boyd Holbrook is a recently released former convict and Elisabeth Moss, a married woman with an abusive husband. One fateful day, the two meet and a connection soon happens…

Chances are that things aren’t going to end very well for both characters. The move from an abusive husband to a recent former convict isn’t exactly the the best trajectory for a woman, but I am looking forward to seeing how it all unfolds.

The Free World Release Dates: September 23rd, 2016 (US)…

TRUTH (2015): For Blanchett’s Performance…

TV news producer Mary Mapes, news anchor Dan Rather and the events that led to very harsh scrutiny, especially aimed at Mapes (Cate Blanchett) is what Truth is about. It is also a movie worth seeing especially for Cate Blanchett fans.

Directed by James Vanderbilt, I appreciate Truth as a film that features a few good people  who make decisions based on factors including how easy it will be to live with themselves afterwards. I enjoyed the dialogue towards the end, especially since I want to believe that I would perform as well as Mapes – should I ever find myself in a similar high pressure predicament.

I watched Truth because I knew it would be worth it for Blanchett’s performance alone -and it is. By the end I was also happy to learn a few hard truths about the world of news journalism.

John Benjamin Hickey’s portrayal of a dedicated, thoughtful and unflinchingly supportive husband is another personal highlight. I always love such stories of great friendships. Joy (2015) comes to mind as a recent example that features a great friend played by Dascha Polanco.

Robert Redford, Topher Grace, Dennis Quaid, David Lyons,Stacy Keach and Elisabeth Moss are all good in their roles of course, but watch it for the main performance. I’ve seen Blanchett in many films and picking a favourite still proves impossible.

HIGH-RISE (2015): New Trailer Starring Tom Hiddleston & Jeremy Irons

Something peculiar and featuring very promising cinematography is coming and it’s called High-Rise

Starring Tom Hiddleston, Sienna Miller, Jeremy Irons and Luke Evans, High-Rise is a  film about life veering out of control for the residents of a tower block / high rise building. The  cinematography, editing and mysterious happenings in this trailer has me curious. I’m hoping that all my guesses about what it could all possibly mean are proven incorrect upon viewing.

High-Rise Release Date(s): March 2016 (UK)…

Luke Wilson and Olivia Wilde are the stars of the new movie from Kill Your Darlings (2013) director, Reed Morano…

Meadowland follows the struggle of two individuals and how they’re affected by an unimaginable loss.

I’ll be watching for the interesting subject matter and also because of Giovanni Ribisi, Elizabeth Moss, John Leguizamo and Olivia Wilde. Great trailer music and editing. Just not a fan of the textual interruptions.

Juno Temple and Kevin Corrigan also star.

Release Date (s): October 16th, 2015 (US).

Happy Film Loving  🙂
