Directed by Robert Rodriguez, co produced by James Cameron and starring Christoph Waltz, Rosa Salazar, Jennifer Connelly and Eiza González, Alita – Battle Angel is an action-packed story. One set several centuries in the future and about hope, love plus empowerment.

The protagonist played by Salazar is a young woman’s journey to discover the truth of who she is and her fight to change the world…

Nice trailer. How absolutely beautiful was that moment when Ed Skrein’s character got smashed? I just can’t wait to see all the visual effects come together.

I’m going to confess that as soon as I saw James Cameron’s name, I couldn’t help but think ‘So this is why the next Avatar movie is delayed?’ I’m quite sure that’s nonsense but you understand.

Another thought that crossed my mind is, ‘Why do Alita’s eyes have to be so large?’ Perhaps it’s explained in the manga series that I’ve never read. Perhaps.

Michelle Rodriguez, Jackie Earle Haley, Ed Skrein and Jorge Lendeborg Jr. also star.

Alita – Battle Angel Release Dates: July 20th, 2018 (UK & US)…

Only The Brave is based on the true story of the elite crew of firemen known as the Granite Mountain Hotshots from Prescott, Arizona. In June 2013 the men battled a wildfire in Yarnell, AZ that claimed the lives of 19 of their members. Directed by Joseph Kosinski; Josh Brolin, Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller and Taylor Kitsch star…

The cast is reliable, the story interesting and that footage of a bear running whilst on fire is spectacular. My fingers are crossed that there’ll be more very impressive fire special effects in the finished movie.

Only The Brave Release Dates: September 22nd, 2017 (UK); October 20th, 2017 (US)…

AMERICAN PASTORAL (2016): New Trailer From Ewan McGregor, Dakota Fanning & Jennifer Connelly

Based on the novel by Philip Roth, Ewan McGregor’s new movie, American Pastoral is set in postwar America and centres around a man whose previously perfect seeming life is abruptly changed when his daughter’s new political affiliations come to light…

Also starring Jennifer Connelly, Uzo Aduba and Dakota Fanning, I know I’m excited  because I’m already imagining some of the possible dramatic exchanges likely to take place.

This is also Ewan McGregor’s directorial debut – therefore reason enough for this movie fan to tune in. Especially since, even though I’m not loving this particular remix of Tears For Fears’ ‘Mad World,’ the trailer isn’t bad.

American Pastoral Release Dates: October 21st, 2016 (US); November 4th, 2016 (UK)…

Written and directed by Paul Bettany, Shelter is not the kind of love story you can expect around Valentine’s day…

Starring Anthony Mackie and Jennifer Connelly, it’s the film’s intriguing character stories, their seemingly unique experience and the New York City setting that has me very curious indeed.

Release Date (s): November 13th 2015 (US limited release), November 27th 2015 (UK)…

STUCK IN LOVE (2012): Family, Love & Writing

Written / directed by Josh Boone and starring talent that includes Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Connelly, Lilly Collins, Kristen Bell, Logan Lerman and Nat Wolff; Stuck In Love is a well acted family drama.

Watch it for a look into a year in the life of a family that consists of a successful Writer, his ex wife, their teenage children and particularly how all parties navigate through their own experiences of love.

This movie is definitely not too emotionally taxing. Actually… that may depend on how closely you relate to the character you identify with the most. Still, overall it’s a pleasant watch.

There’s also potential value for any Writers/ aspiring Writers and anyone generally curious about other families. I know I always am.

My favourite part is all the scenes Kristen Bell is in because her fun character is unlike any I’ve ever seen her play before.

Happy Stuck In Love 🙂
