From writer / director Bart Layton, American Animals is a new crime / drama about four young men who mistake their lives for a movie and attempt one of the most audacious heists in U.S. history.
Evan Peters, Barry Keoghan, Blake Jenner and Jared Abrahamson star…
I like the words ‘four young men who mistake their lives for a movie…’ With a description that starts like that I can’t help but expect good things. I’m looking forward to finding out how all the madness turns out.
Ann Dowd, Udo Kier, Elijah Everett and Lara Grice also star.
The Pirates Of Somalia is based on the true story of rookie journalist Jay Bahadur’s time with Somali pirates. Bahadur spent time with the pirates for the purpose of providing the first close-up look into who they are, the way they live and the forces that drive them. Directed by Bryan Buckley; Evan Peters, Al Pacino and Barkhad Abdi star..
This could be interesting. Though, at the same time this trailer could have done a better job of selling the movie. I’m not in love with the way it ends. On a separate note, it’s good to see Abdi of Captain Philips (2013) playing a non-pirate role, as far as I can tell.
I saw the names Kevin Spacey and Michael Shannon which led me to immediately watching the new trailer for the Liza Johnson directed comedy, Elvis & Nixon…
In terms of the casting, at first I thought, ‘What? Michael Shannon? As Elvis?’ But then I finished watching the trailer…
Shannon certainly doesn’t bear much of a facial resemblance to Elvis Presley but it does look like he’s succeeded in all the other key areas. I say this having not heard him sing. In fact, I’m not even sure that he’ll sing at all in the film. I’ll be watching for the comedy and the two lead actors.
Evan Peters, Colin Hanks and Alex Pettyfer also star.
Friday has arrived with a trailer I wasn’t aware was missing from my week. Directed by Bryan Singer, X-Men: Apocalypse is the latest instalment and it looks good…
I like both trailers, the specific footage and dialogue is great especially for trailer one. What I’m less keen on is the continued use of the music first heard at 1:10. I feel as though once was quite enough.
Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence all return for this instalment, along with some new mutants.
