IsLokithe Marvel Studios/Avengers spin-off series I’m most excited about? Yes! And full disclosure, as a non-reader of comic books, I have no idea about what the synopsis could be, since Marvel hasn’t revealed much and I recall nothing of the last one or two Thor movies. Because I haven’t seen them… yet.
Still, who needs a synopsis anyway, when Tom Hiddleston is reprising his role as the favourite villain of many movie fans?
The excellent cast includes Sophia Di Martino, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Owen Wilson.
How much fun is this trailer? So much fun that it has me ready to place Loki at the currently short list of recent Avengers spin-off shows. The Falcon and the Winter Soldieris in second place and unfortunately, last has to be WandaVision, for reasons outlined in the linked post
Richard E. Grant, Lucius Baston, Chris Brewster, Cailey Fleming, Isabelle Fretheim, Michael Rose, Aaron Beelner and Reese Giles also star.
Tom Hiddleston, Sophia Di Martino, Richard E. Grant and Owen Wilson are the stars of new Marvel Entertainment/Disney+ series Loki.
Hello, beautiful trailer!
I have no idea why they’ve chosen to call this a ‘clip;’ especially considering the editing. Anyway, what a magnetic villainous presence Hiddleston conveys. I’m excited to see his Loki being as simultaneously cool and bad, as only the very best villains can be.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Lucius Baston, Chris Brewster, Cailey Fleming, Isabelle Fretheim, Michael Rose, Aaron Beelner and Reese Giles also star.
Motherless Brooklyn story of Lionel Essrog (Edward Norton), a lonely 1950s New York private detective afflicted with Tourette’s Syndrome. Armed only with a few clue and his obsessive mind, Lionel is determined to solve the murder of his mentor and only friend, Frank Minna (Bruce Willis).
Additional key cast includes Willem Dafoe Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Leslie Mann, Alec Baldwin…
I like the first 30 seconds of this trailer most and I’m curious about how Lionel will use his unique mind to solve his friend’s murder.
Fingers crossed for an engaging t experience throughout.
Ethan Suplee, Michael Kenneth Williams, Bobby Cannavale, Dallas Roberts, Fisher Stevens, Cherry Jones and Robert Wisdom also star.
The Morning Show is a new Apple TV series starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell and Mark Duplass.
Set in the wake of a major scandal at an early morning news channel, The Morning Show follows the unique challenges faced by the men and women we trust to tell the truth, and what happens when they prove themselves to be dishonest…
Aniston and Witherspoon on screen together; that’s a key reason I’m looking forward to this one. I’m a fan of Carell, Mark Duplass and Gugu Mbatha-Raw too, of course.
I was also listening quite closely when Crudup’s character said ‘Watching a beloved woman’s breakdown is timeless American entertainment.’ Now I know that I can’t wait to see how said woman will be fighting back.
The Morning Show brings to mind Gabrielle Union’s Being Mary Jane. I’m curious about the ways it’ll be different.
Nestor Carbonell, Karen Pittman, Bel Powley, Victoria Tate, Desean Terry, Shari Belafonte, Katherine Ko and Ian Gomez also star.
Kate Beckinsale, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Damson Idris and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s new film, Farming is not going to be an easy one to watch.
It’s the story of a young Nigerian boy, ‘farmed out’ by his parents to a white British family in the hope of a better future.
Based on writer / director Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s actual life, instead of things going as his parents dreamed, Akinnuoye-Agbaje becomes the feared leader of a white skinhead gang…
A beyond heart breaking story that is at the core, a tale of survival, I intend to watch this. I’ll just make sure I’m not already having a bad day when I do. Knowing that Akinnuoye-Agbaje made it through is what makes me even more determined to dedicate the required time. I can’t wait to find out how he got to the other side of hate.
Jaime Winstone, John Dagleish, Theo Barklem-Biggs, Ann Mitchell, Genevieve Nnaji and Skye Lourie also star.
Regardless of how much I wished and hoped, Irreplaceable You which stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Michiel Huisman is not a good movie. However sweet the premise of the love story may be and as tragic as the story’s end is, the execution was not satisfying.
It’s odd to say this of a movie about a young couple whose love story is cut short by terminal illness but, I kept thinking where’s the heart, the soul? Why am I not connecting to this story – let alone the characters?
Overall, I don’t think I really bought much of what was happening throughout. My viewing session kept being interrupted by thoughts of ‘this is not great’ and ‘The Fault In Our Stars (2014)’ did a much better job of telling a similar story.
What I know for sure is that story editing, the writing, cliches and perhaps insufficient chemistry between the two leads has something to do with why Irreplaceable You isn’t great. There were a few moments where I thought ‘this is where it takes a turn and gets better’ but it never did.
If I had to pick a thing or two I liked, I’d say the moment in Central Park during the ‘Did you know’ game because I learned one or two things I didn’t already know. There’s also Jacki Weaver. However small the part or disappointing a film, ‘Queen Weaver’ never seems to give a bad performance. I haven’t watched all her movies, of course but I always buy everything she’s selling. The Voices (2014), for example.
The Fault In Our Stars, definitely watch that instead. Really.
Irreplaceable You is a Stephanie Laing directed romance / comedy / drama about a couple for whom ’till death do us part’ is coming coming much sooner than expected.
Key cast includes Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michiel Huisman and Christopher Walken.
I’m in for the comedy and romance. No doubt I’m also going to ‘boohoo’ quite a bit The story rather demands it.
I had no idea that I’d just been looking at Michiel Huisman of The Age of Adaline (2015) and Game of Thronesuntil 1:09 into this trailer. Perhaps the people behind Superman are correct, spectacles are quite the disguise.
Claire Holt, Jacki Weaver, Brian Tyree Henry, Tamara Tunie and SteveCoogan also star.
