The latest trailer for the new Star Wars movie, Star Wars – The Last Jedi is here. Directed by Rian Johnson and starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Adam Driver, the story continues with Rey (Ridley) on her epic journey with Finn, Poe and Luke Skywalker following the events of Star Wars Episode 7 – The force Awakens (2015)…
I like the first 20 seconds of this trailer. After that though, it becomes a little tedious and leaves me thinking, ‘I know how to breathe but what else have you got?’ I found the trailers for the previous Star Wars movie far more exciting and thrilling – teaser trailer or not. It’s probably too early to call it of course. So I wait.
In director James Ponsoldt’s The Circle, Emma Watson is Mae, a young woman excelling in her job at the world’s largest tech and social media company, The Circle. Things take quite a turn when she’s encouraged by Circle’s founder Eamon Bailey (Tom hanks) to live her life completely transparently…
The Circle is based on the best selling book by Dave Eggers. John Boyega, Patton Oswalt, Bill Paxton Karen Gillan and Ellar Coltrane also star.
I love movies, but I do confess that there are some highly regarded films I’ve never watched – and a few more I may never seriously consider watching. Unfortunately all Star Wars films fall into this category.
Fantasy is simply not my favourite genre. In fact, I was quite sure that I’d probably never get round to watching a single Star Wars film. Unless…
…I met a really impassioned fan who somehow finally managed to convince me to put my aversion to fantasy film aside.
What I didn’t count on was that, that very person might just be new Star Wars writer / director J.J. Abrams.
I didn’t actually meet him, but I have seen the first 60 seconds of the new Star Wars Episode 7 – The Force Awakens teaser trailer:
I’m making no promises, of course. But when that next trailer does arrive, attention I will pay.
