Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson and Alex Sharp are the stars of How to Talk to Girls at Parties, a John Cameron Mitchell directed comedy / romance about an alien. An alien that’s touring the galaxy but breaks away from her group and meets two young inhabitants of the most dangerous place in the universe – the London suburb of Croydon…

I’m in for the alien activity and the costumes. I also can’t say that I didn’t find the line in the official synopsis about Croydon amusing.

In The Beguiled, Colin Farrell plays a wounded Union soldier who cons his way into the hearts of the women in a Confederate girls’ boarding school. Soon enough, the women turn against each other but then they get smart and turn on him. Directed by Sofia Coppola; other acting talent includes Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning and Angourie Rice…

I find this trailer promising, especially because of the cast. I want to be even more excited but after The Bling Ring (2013) – the last Sofia Coppola directed movie I saw which I did not enjoy as much as expected,  I’ll wait and see;  in a very calm and perfectly balanced manner. Also this is a remake of the 1971 movie of the same name starring Clint Eastwood.

The Beguiled Release Dates: June 23rd, 2017 (UK); June 30th, 2017 (US)…

20th Century Women (not Fox – as I thought at first glance), is the latest comedy/ drama starring Annette Bening, Elle Fanning and Alia Shawkat. Written and directed by Mike Mills, the film looks at love and freedom as explored by three women in 1970s Southern California…

Annette Bening, the main if not only reason I’d watch this movie, is an actress I’ve appreciated since American Beauty (1999)I’m  hoping that that love only grows after this film – especially since I’m not exactly in love with this trailer at present. Though that may change tomorrow, maybe.

Additional cast includes Greta Gerwig, Billy Crudup and Laura Wiggins.

20th Century Women Release Dates: January 20th, 2017 (US & UK)…

Ben Affleck is director, producer and star of Live By Night, a new crime drama about the dealings of a group of people involved in organised crime during the United States prohibition era. Based on the novel by Dennis Lehane; Zoe Saldana, Scott Eastwood, Elle Fanning and Chris Messina are just some of the talented cast…

Johnny Depp’s Public Enemies (2009) came to mind as I watched this trailer. Which will be the better movie, I wonder…

Live By Night Release Dates: January 13th 2017 (US & UK)…

Nicolas Winding Refn, celebrated director of Drive (2011) and Only God Forgives (2013)has a new movie. Starring  Elle Fanning, Alessandro Nivola, Christina Hendricks and Bella Heathcote, what we have is a thriller / horror coming…

I haven’t watched Refn’s previous movie Only God Forgives (2013) but it’s clear to me that  the man loves neon. This time round neon is not just part of the cinematography / mis en scene, but it’s in the movie’s title.

I’ll be watching because drive was good, as is Fanning. I just need to get brave first. You know, for the horror.

Keanu Reeves, Jena Malone Desmond Harrington and Charles Baker also star…

The Neon Demon Release Dates: July 8th, 2016 (UK); Jun, 2016 (US)…

A new trailer arrives for a movie about the movie business in the 1940s…

Directed by Jay Roach; Bryan Cranston, Helen Mirren, Louis C.K., Diane Lane and John Goodman are all great reasons to watch. Other reasons include all the beautiful words / dialogue, including the following…
