BRIGHTBURN (2019): New Trailer From Elizabeth Banks, Meredith Hagner, David Denman…

In new horror movie Brightburn, a child from another world crash-lands on Earth, only instead becoming a hero to mankind, he’s something far worse.

Directed by David Yarovesky; Elizabeth Banks, Meredith Hagner, David Denman, Jackson A. Dunn, Matt Jones and star…

I’m drawn to this because I like Banks. Whether I make it to the theatre or not is another matter entirely. I mean, after all, this is categorised as horror rather than horror / drama / mystery, like  A Quiet Place (2017) –  scary-ish movie I had no issue watching.

Brightburn Release Dates: May 24th, 2019 (US & UK)…

Directed by Brian Henson;  Melissa McCarthy, Elizabeth Banks and Joel McHale star in The Happytime Murders; an action / comedy about a disgraced LAPD detective-turned-private eye puppet. 

The private eye puppet is determined to solve the case when the puppet cast of an ’80s children’s TV show begins to get murdered one by one…

I don’t yet know what to make of this. I’m just glad that the word ‘Muppets’ isn’t in the title, considering the ‘R’ rating. It will hopefully be a good comedy thanks to the involvement of Banks in particular and McCarthy. Fingers crossed.

The Happytime Murders Release Dates: August 17th, 2018 (US); August 24th, 2018 (UK)…

Based on the hit children’s TV series and directed by Dean Israelite, Power Rangers stars Elizabeth Banks, Bill Hader and Bryan Cranston. The actual  Power Rangers are played by Ludi Lin (The Black Ranger), RJ Cyler (The Blue Ranger), Naomi Scott (The Pink Ranger), Becky G (The Yellow Ranger) and Dacre Montgomery (The Red ranger). They are a group of are high school students infused with superpowers that they must harness to save the world…

I used to watch the TV series growing up. Something – namely the trailer plus the high number of super hero movies in recent years and my current feelings about the phenomenon (boredom) tells me that I should probably leave this movie to the die-hard fans and the young people who are still  into the TV series. I haven’t quite fully decided just yet.

Power Rangers Movie Release Dates: March 23rd, 2017 (GER); March 24th, 2017 (US & UK)…

Trailer 1 of The Hunger Games, Mocking Jay Part 2 arrives and it’s clear that the makers had the word ‘epic.’ in mind. Huge fans of the franchise will be overjoyed and might even scream. I’m not the biggest fan so I didn’t, but I do understand.

Happy The Hunger Games, Mockingjay, Part 2 🙂

THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 2 (2015): A Second Teaser Trailer

After last month’s release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 teaser trailer, I thought we’d see approximately 2 more trailers before the November release date. Not so, because here comes, yes, another teaser.

No one is going to blame you if the following thoughts went through your head as you watched.

  1. Whose music video is this? 
  2. Really? Another teaser?
  3. Ok. I want that red suit!
  4. Is white really the best colour for combat gear?

Before deciding to patiently (not so patiently) wait for November, you first need to stop imagining the people in white performing a very impressive street dance routine and Katniss Everdeen lip synching lyrics that include the words, ‘red’, ‘white’ and ‘unite’.

Good luck with that.

Happy The Hunger Games, Mockingjay, Part 2 🙂

Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Sam Claflin, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Donald Sutherland and Julianne Moore, the trailer for the final installment of The Hunger Games films is here…

In this Francis Lawrence directed finale, one thing is clear, President Snow’s reign must end. I really do  hope that it’s a spectacle as exciting as can be.

How true is the idea that President Snow is probably the worst possible Santa Claus anyone could ever imagine.

Happy The Hunger Games, Mockingjay, Part 2 🙂

Like a great film, great trailers are not easy to make.

Elizabeth Banks, Diane Lane and Dakota Fanning are the stars of the latest brilliant trailer. It’s so interesting that I’m more than ready to watch the movie right this minute.

See for yourself…

It’s good because of the editing, music atmosphere, stars and the masterful tease.

Happy Every Secret Thing 🙂
