Finding Steve Mqueen is a new crime / thriller based on a true story set in 1972 Youngstown, Ohio.

Starring Travis Fimmel, William Fichtner, Forrest Whitaker and Rachael Taylor, director Mark Steven Johnson’s story is about a gang of thieves as they attempt to steal $30 million in illegal contributions and blackmail money from President Richard Nixon‘s secret fund…

Looks like this could be fun. It kind of brings to mind Leonardo DiCaprio’s Catch Me If You Can (2002).

Lily Rabe, Jake Weary, Rhys Coiro, John Finn, Molly McQueen and Gioia Libardoni also star.

Finding Steve McQueen Release Dates: March 15th, 2019 (US)…

ROGUE ONE – A STAR WARS STORY (2016): The Latest Trailer Starring Felicity Jones, Ben Mendelsohn, Riz Ahmed…

The new Rogue One – A Star Wars Story trailer looks good and it definitely has less of a’low budget‘ feel compared to the teaser released back in April…

I’m thinking that the much reported about re-shoots helped do the trick.

Rogue One – A Star Wars Story… That’s right; starring Felicity Jones, Mads Mikkelsen, Forrest Whitaker and Genevieve O’reilly, we have another new Star Wars movie…

Teaser Trailer

Trailer 1

I’m going to admit that I’m not very excited about this one. But then again, I’m still yet to watch a single Star Wars film. Reason being, fantasy generally isn’t my favourite genre. Nevertheless, I couldn’t help but notice that the teaser trailer makes this film look more ‘low budget’ than Star Wars – Episode 7- The Force Awakens. it may be because it is.

Those who really love the franchise likely won’t agree, but I’m just thinking, isn’t this overkill? It still feels like The Force Awakens was released just yesterday.

Instead of J.J. Abrams, Gareth Edwards is directing. Riz Ahmed, Jonathan Aris and Donnie Yen also star.

SOUTHPAW (2015): Nothing New But Good Performances All Round

Antoine Fuqua is the man in the director’s seat for Southpaw, the movie where Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Billy Hope, a successful boxer seeking redemption after an unbearable tragedy derails his life completely.

Gyllenhaal’s physical transformation is noticeably impressive but it comes second to everything he manages to achieve with his character’s emotional journey.

As you watch the movie, you may find yourself cursing testosterone for being the cause of at least one of the bad things that happens to Hope. However, what seems like an absence of good sense likely also plays a large part.

Overall, there’s nothing particularly surprising or refreshingly new in Southpaw. Though there is one key aspect of the plot that would have been a great surprise – had it not been revealed in the trailer months prior.

Watch Southpaw because you like the filmmaking team and you’re curious about the movie’s exploration of redemption, regret, second chances, starting over and of course, the sport of boxing.

Forrest Whitaker, Naomie Harris and Rachel McAdams also star.
