Starring Jamie Dornan, Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo; Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar is a new comedy about two lifelong friends who decide to leave their small Midwestern town, for the very first time.

Directed by Josh Greenbaum; friendship, romance and a villain’s evil plot are what can be expected in an adventure of a lifetime.

Damon Wayans Jr., Wendi McLendon-Covey, Michael Hitchcock and Kwame Patterson are among the additional key cast.

What a quirky little thing this one is. At the very least I have to see how it turns out.

I also find myself randomly wondering how many people this could potentially inspire to leave their small towns. I’m sure the answer will depend, in part, on how effective the villain is. I think we’ll be OK as long as the villain isn’t too much like the ones in Taken (2008).

Reyn Doi, Mark Jonathan Davis, Tom Lenk, Karen Maruyama, Hank Rogerson and Shantira Jackson also star.

Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar Release Dates: July 16th, 2021 (US & UK)…

WILD MOUNTAIN THYME (2020): New Trailer From Emily Blunt, Jamie Dornan, John hamm, Christopher Walken…

Written/directed by John Patrick Shanley; Wild Mountain Thyme is the latest drama/romance starring Emily Blunt, John Hamm, Jamie Dornan and Christopher Walken.

Blunt and Dornan are star-crossed lovers in Ireland, a pair who find themselves caught up in their family’s land dispute.

It’s strange but earlier in the afternoon, a few hours before I came across this trailer, I was thinking about how long it’s been since I saw a new trailer starring Emily Blunt.

I’m in because it’s Blunt, even though I have to admit to not being a big fan of the way this trailer is edited. Largely because it’s oddly jumpy, awkward, and I’m also not so sure about the Blunt/Dornan chemistry. Anyone else see what I see?

Lastly, I keep reading the title of this movie as Wild ‘Mushroom’ Thyme. I just hope I didn’t type that unintellay somewhere.

Jon Tenney, Dearbhla Molloy, Danielle Ryan, Lydia McGuinness, Abigail Coburn, Darragh O’Kane and Martin F Ward also star.

Wild Mountan Thyme Release Dates: December 11th, 2020 (US)…

Set over the course of one year, new drama Endings, Beginnings focuses on a 30 something year-old woman (Shailene Woodley) as she navigates through love and heartbreak.

Directed by Drake Doremus of Like Crazy (2011); additional key cast includes Jamie Dornan, Sebastian…

Something tells me that at the end, she’s going to choose herself. Whatever the choice, may the journey towards it be an interesting and engaging watch. Just kidding.

I can just imagine huge Dornan and Stan fans feeling completely spoilt with this one. And to them I say, ‘calm yourselves!’ – All in jest of course.

Matthew Gray Gubler, Lindsay Sloane, Kelly Albanese, Shamier Anderson, Luke Baybak, Lola Blanc, Janice LeAnn Brown, Garrett Coffey and Sherry Cola also star.

Starring Jamie Dornan, Jemima Kirke, Alice Eve and Ben Mendelsohn; writer / director Emma Forrest’s Untogetheris a  new drama about a recently sober writer with a stalled career, who starts an affair with a successful writer.

All the while her sister finds herself drawn to a politically engaged rabbi while dating an agEing rocker.

I’m curious about this one because though this trailer doesn’t exactly have me yelping with joy, I’m curious to find out what the special thing about the story is. Specifically the thing that made all the talented actors involved say ‘yes’ to the script.

And who knows, with Valentines Day soon arriving, this may just be what I’m in the mood for around that time.

Billy Crystal, Lola Kirke, Scott Caan, and Jennifer Grey also star.

Untogether Release Dates: February 8th, 2019 (US)…

A PRIVATE WAR (2018): New Trailer From Rosamund Pike, Jamie Dornan, Stanley Tucci, Tom Hollander…

A Private War is the true story of Marie Colvin, the fearless rebellious spirit who was driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe, to give voice to the voiceless.

Directed by Matthew Heineman; Rosamund Pike, Jamie Dornan, Stanley Tucci and Tom Hollander star…

I’ve always been intrigued by people drawn to such dangerous jobs. Especially since it’s so far removed from what I’d rather be doing. I’m guessing a mixture of purpose and adrenaline are contributing factors to the choice.

Alexandra Moen, Corey Johnson, Raad Rawi, Jérémie Laheurte and Jesuthasan Antonythasan also star.

My Dinner With Hervé is a new Sacha Gervasi written / directed biography about French actor Hervé Villechaize.Villechaize later took his own life at the age of 50.

Starring Peter Dinklage, Jamie Dornan, Andy Garcia…

I’m in for the Dinklage / Dornan dynamic and the unfortunately tragic story of Villechaize’s life. I also want to listen to see how convincingly French Dinklage’s accent is.

Oona Chaplin, Helena Mattsson, Mireille Enos and Wallace Langham also star.

FIFTY SHADES FREED (2018): It’s…

Knowing as I do that 2017’s Fifty Shades Darker did very little to improve on the original Fifty Shades Of Grey (2015) movie, I was ready for this third instalment, Fifty Shades Freed to be in no way a step up… and it isn’t, at all. I do however feel as though the trilogy shifted from ‘bad’ and ‘definitely still bad’ to something that resembles a much-less-tame romantic Hallmark film. To be clear, Hallmark movies are not great either, even though they’re not always as bad as ‘the worst.’

Starring Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson, Rita Ora and directed once again by James Foley; in Fifty Shades Freed, Anastasia and Christian get married, but their troubles with people from Christian’s past are far from over.

Just as was the case with the previous two movies, ridiculous and not well written or well acted things happen in Fifty Shades Freed. Yet though not in a movie theatre, I still sat and watched anyway because firstly, I felt like I needed to see the whole trilogy through to the end. Second, I really wanted a glimpse at the wedding. Third, I wanted one more look at a depiction of the ever intriguing lifestyles of the super rich and last but certainly not least, Rita Ora’s gorgeous face, acting.

The Fifty Shades movies always had little chance of being good because of the not so great source material. Even still, that was never going to be enough to stop many of the millions of fans of the book, fans of Dakota Johnson, fans of Jamie Dornan or fans of Rita Ora (me) from watching the films. It also won’t stop some romantics (like myself) who need a very far from taxing romance film to play semi in the background as they sit still whilst doing other equally non-taxing things.

Whatever your reason to watch or not, your decision is probably right, for you. Also, if you start and promptly abort, you also cannot be blamed.

Happy Film Loving.

The Robin Hood story of an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown has been refreshed for a new outing. 

Directed by Otto Bathurst; key cast includes Taron Egerton, Jamie Dornan, Jamie Foxx, Ben Mendelsohn…

Before I knew that Bathurst was in charge, I couldn’t help but think of Guy Ritchie as the director while this trailer played. I’m in to see Egerton have even more fun on screen.

Eve Hewson, Josh Herdman and Tim Minchin also star.
