Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and Jacob Tremblay are the stars of Doctor Sleep, a new horror movie based on Steven King’s novel of the same name.
Set decades after the events of The Shining (1980), a now-adult Dan Torrence meets a young girl with similar powers as his. Dan must try to protect her from a cult who prey on children with powers…
I’ve never seen The Shining and that’s mainly because it’s a horror movie and I’m scared. It’s not completely my fault though because at seventeen, my Media Studies teacher wouldn’t let the class watch The Shining because according to her, it was too scary. I myself had zero objections with her decision – especially since by that point, I’d already seen The Omen (1976), the film responsible for my general aversion to scary movies since the age of twelve.
As for whether I’ll watch Doctor Sleep? I may just. Especially if others find it to be less scary than The Shining.
The moments I like in this new trailer include when Dan says the words ‘The Shinning’ – the penny drops and I realise what this is.
There’s also my general happiness at seeing Rebecca Ferguson as a cast member. She’s been one of my favourites ever since Mission – Impossible 5, Rogue Nation (2015). As for Jack Nicholson standout star of The Shining, I’m not even sure he’s still acting but I definitely half expected that he’d show up in this trailer. He still might. Well, that’s assuming he wasn’t killed off; something I’d know had I actually seen the original movie.
Have you seen The Shining? Is it as scary as they say?
Zahn McClarnon, Bruce Greenwood, Carl Lumbly, Selena Anduze, Carel Struycken, Emily Alyn Lind, Jocelin Donahue, Nicholas Pryor and Selena Anduze also star.
In new comedy Good Boys, three sixth grade boys (11 / 12 year olds) ditch school and embark on an adventure that involves carrying accidentally stolen drugs, being hunted by teenage girls, and trying to get home in time for their first kissing party.
Directed and co-written by Gene Stupnitsky, Good Boys is co-produced by Seth Rogen and stars Jacob Tremblay, Keith L. Williams, Brady Noon, Molly Gordon…
As a fan of Rogen and Superbad (2007), I simply have to watch this one. I’m just hoping that this long trailer didn’t show too many of the jokes.
Midori Francis, Enid-Raye Adams, Chance Hurstfield, Millie Davis, Benita Ha, Lina Renna and Vicky Lambert also star.
In new action / adventure / horror The Predator, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race, after a young boy accidentally triggers the return of universe’s most lethal hunters.
Directed by Shane Black; Jacob Tremblay, Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown star…
This is a very good teaser trailer but not for a second would I ever think that an 11 year-old actor would be the one to put me at ease in terms of the expected quality level of a new movie. But then, not every 11 year-old is a very talented Canadian called Jacob Tremblay.
I’m very much looking forward to this, in part because of the beautiful bass in Boyd Holbrook’s voice.
Yvonne Strahovski, Thomas Jane, Keegan-Michael Key and Lochlyn Munro also star.
In Wonder, the latest movie from Julia Roberts, Jacob Tremblay and Owen wilson, August (Auggie) Pullman is a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade at a mainstream elementary school for the first time…
Jacob Tremblay is such a great young talent. He along with Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson are great reasons to watch this movie. It also helps that the film is based on R.J. Palacio’s bestselling book of the same name. I don’t recall the last time I watched Wilson in a non-comedy role so this should be interesting.
Naomi Watts, Jacob Tremblay, Sarah Silverman and Jaeden Lieberher are the stars of The Book Of Henry, the Colin Trevorrow directed movie about a single mother raising a genius child. But wait. There’s more…
I’m intrigued because of the genius child and seemingly regular mother dynamiC. I also can’t wait for the police commissioner to get what’s coming to him.
Based on the novel by Emma Donoghue, the story of Room is one of the love between a mother and her child. Particularly, in this instance, all that such a love can come to mean, given the enclosed surroundings that the two are forced to call home.
The scenes that stick with me after watching Room are the ones that involve an incredible amount of tension and suspense and the very powerful / moving moments sans dialogue.
Directed by Lenny Abrahamson, the reasons I had to watch Room include the extraordinary story, the film’s trailer, and the promise of Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay’s performances.
The mother / son dynamic is the key focus of Room and understandably so. However, I still found myself wanting to know more about Sean Bridger’s ‘Big Nick’ character and how it is that he came to be. Something tells me that the ‘Big Nick’ movie exists, it just may not be based on a book by Emma Donoghue.
Watch Room for the performances, camera work, general execution and all that the story has to say about love and imagination.
Speaking of imagination, there’s one specific movie that popped into my mind as I watched Room and it’s Roberto Benigni’s Oscar Winning, Life Is Beautiful (1997), a movie I highly recommend.
