An Irish Ranger who’s been fighting for the British Army abroad abandons his post to reunite with his family. Despite experiencing the horrors of war, he’s shocked by the destruction of the Great Famine in Ireland – his homeland and the brutalisation of his people and his family.

Directed by Lance Daly; Black 47 stars Hugo Weaving, James Frecheville, Freddie Fox, Stephen Rea…

This trailer reminds me a little of Tarantino’s The Hateful 8 (2015). The story and style are why I’m interested. I’m also in for a little bit of a history lesson.

Sarah Greene, Jim Broadbent, Barry Keoghan, Moe Dunford and Ciaran Grace also star.

Black 47 Release Dates: September 28th, 2018 (US & UK)…

MORTAL ENGINES (2018): New Trailer From Peter Jackson Starring Hera Hilmar, Hugo Weaving, Jihae…

Directed by Christian Rivers, starring Hera Hilmar, Hugo Weaving and Jihae, Mortal Engines is an action / fantasy / sci-fi movie set many years after the ‘Sixty Minute War.’ A time when cities survive a now desolate Earth by moving around on giant wheels, attacking and devouring smaller towns to replenish their resources…

The concept for this movie which has Peter Jackson of The Lord Of The Rings trilogy involved as one of the screenwriters is definitely interesting. Nevertheless, there are just a few reasons why I find myself intrigued but not quite excited, yet.

One reason is the fact that I don’t really know the film’s star so I don’t have that prior connection. Another reason is we don’t get to see her face in this trailer so there’s that barrier to connection.  Last but absolutely not least, the idea of London, England my dear beloved city existing only on wheels is very unsettling to say the least.

Now that all my random thoughts have been aired, I’m quite sure that I’ll  get over my concerns enough to appreciate one more fearless screen heroine.

Joel Tobeck and Robert Sheehan also star.

Mortal Engines Release Dates: December 14th, 2018 (US & UK)…

JASPER JONES (2017): New Trailer From Toni Collette, Hugo Weaving, Levi Miller, Angourie Rice…

Jasper Jones is a coming of age mystery / thriller about what it really is to be courageous. Starring Toni Collettte, Hugo Weaving, Levi Miller and Angourie Rice, a 14 year old boy embarks on a journey to find the true killer of a young local girl and prove his friend’s innocence…

Directed by Rachel Perkins, Jasper Jones is based on the best selling Novel by Craig Silvey and I want to see it because it looks good and rightly or wrongly, this trailer kind of reminds me of  To Kill A Mockingbird (1962).

Aaron L. McGrath and Matt Nable also star

Jasper Jones Release Dates: 2017 (AUS)…

HACKSAW RIDGE (2016): New Trailer From Mel Gibson Starring Andrew Garfield

Andrew Garfield is the star of Mel Gibson’s latest film, Hacksaw Ridge. Garfield plays real life WWII American Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, a man who joins the army but refuses to kill people…

I don’t know what the word is for how this trailer makes me feel but I know I’ll have to be in the right mood to sit and watch. It seems to have a kind of Forrest Gump quality but pulls even harder at the heartstrings; all of which makes me think that the end product is going to be dare I say, overly sappy.

Perhaps I’d be more intrigued had the trailer not revealed so much. All that has been left out of this trailer appears to be the presentation of the Medal of Honour. As continues to be the case, I ‘m missing the good trailers of the past that really cleverly showed you only enough and never too much.

My favourite Mel Gibson directed movie will likely always be Apocalypto (2006).

Sam Worthington, Ryan Corr, Luke Bracey, Vince Vaughn and Hugo Weaving also star.

Hacksaw Ridge Release Dates: November 4th ,2016 (US); (GER)

THE DRESSMAKER (2015): For The Story, Fashion & Style

The Dressmaker is a fun revenge drama set in a rural small town in Australia. I use the word ‘fun’ because of the dialogue, characters, cinematography and the haute couture fashion and colours of the 1950s.

The character played by Hugo Weaving is the source of several laughs and a definite highlight. As always, the film’s star, Kate Winslet delivers a wonderful performance. The movie’s beautiful soundtrack, courtesy of composer, David Hirschfelder is also another plus.

Directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse and based on the novel by Rosalie Ham, watch The Dressmaker because it’s good and  you probably won’t be able to guess how things are going to unfold until they do.

Sarah Snook, Judy Davis, and Liam Hemsworth also star. Here’s the trailer for a taster.
