Jupiter’s Legacy, the new series about a fresh generation of superheroes whose job it is to live up to their parents’ legacy and do their part in keeping the world safe, has a noteworthy new trailer. One that stars Josh Duhamel, Leslie Bibb, Andrew Horton and Ben Daniels.
On account of the trailer music, how Duhamel has been aged, plus his not fully natural-looking beard, this trailer is not quite what I expected. Still, that doesn’t mean I’m not supercurious about how this new superhero series will differ from the stories we’re used to.
To be the children of superheroes appears to have parallels to being born into royalty. Well, except for all the hard physical labour, fighting and danger.
Mike Wade, Tenika Davis, Meg Steedle, Elena Kampouris, Tyrone Benskin, Matt Lanter and Anna Akana also star.
In a drama that spans several decades; new action/adventure Jupiter’s Legacy is the story of a new generation of superheroes. One whose job it is to live up to their parents’ legacy and do their part in keeping the world safe.
Navigating the dynamics of family, power and loyalty, Jupiter’s legacy stars Josh Duhamel, Ben Daniels, Leslie Bibb and Andrew Horton
This teaser reveals a minimal amount. Nevertheless, I have a feeling I’m going to be happy with this series. Well, just as long as it isn’t as bad as the last movie I saw with ‘Jupiter’ in the title. I’m of course talking about Jupiter Ascending (2015). A surprise disappointment that starred Eddie Redmayne, Sean Bean, Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis.
Elena Kampouris, Matt Lanter, Mike Wade, Tenika Davis, Meg Steedle, Anna Akana and Tyrone Benskin also star.
Josh Duhamel, Leslie Bibb and Nora Dunn’s latest movie The Lost Husbandis a film I enjoyed a little more than I expected to.
Directed by Vicky Wight, it’s a story that focuses on Libby (Bibb), a newly single mother who’s trying to put her life back together after her husband dies. And she starts by moving – along with her two children to her no-nonsense aunt’s goat farm in central Texas.
What stood from the very beginning for me as The Lost Husband played is the rather pleasant musical score. Then I noticed the films even pacing and the way it’s arguably not quite as clichéd as the Hallmark movies you may or may not have seen (*wink, wink). Particularly since this story is that little bit more complicated, among one or two other reasons.
Being in the mood mood for an ‘easy viewing’ movie experience with a little romance is the reason t I decided to watch The Lost Husband. The trailer also had me wanting to see Libby make it through the grief so she could start having fun again.
As Libby met the colourful town folk and started to learn more about farm life, largely from Duhamel’s farm manager character, James, it soon became clear that Libby was going to be all right. That’s around the time I started wishing that I too had an aunt who lived on a farm. That is until I remembered my irrational fear of earthworms, bugs and many other animals.
The only thing that I wish wasn’t quite so about The Lost Husband is its use of a specific cliché involving a group of jealous and unpleasant women during a scene in the town market. Some of the writing and acting in said scene stood out for the wrong reasons. Yet, I till say that if you’re intrigued enough, then give The Lost Husband a chance. Especially when it’s time for an ‘easy viewing’ film session.
There’s also the simple pleasure of Duhamel in a Cowboy hat. You know, in case watching Libby get her life back on track and the idea of a virtual farm-based escape doesn’t quite cut it.
Josh Duhamel, Leslie Bibb, Nora Dunn and Kevin Alejandro are the stars of The Lost Husband, the story of Libby (Bibb), a newly single mother trying to put her life back together after her husband dies.
Based on the best selling book by Katherine Center and directed by Vicky Wight, Libby and her children move to her estranged Aunt’s goat farm in central Texas, and soon they meet James (Duhamel).
I want to see Libby overcome, get her life back in order make for a great farm girl. That way I can believe I too could learn to do it too… should the opportunity arise.
I’m also just in for a little romance during these ‘social distancing’ times.
Georgia King, Carly Pope, Herizen F. Guardiola, Nora Dunn, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Callie Hope Haverda, Ashlyn Rainn Holmes, Roxton Garcia, Grey Acuna, Stone Garcia and Marquel Skinner also star.
Love, Simon is a good coming-of-age movie about the complicated love story of a young closeted gay man.
Starring Nick Robinson (Simon), Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhamel, I particularly appreciate how well written and cast the story is. I now think that a part of me had probably been waiting for a good teen movie that was different enough from all the others I’d loved before (not a deliberate reference to Netflix teen movie hit To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before (2018) – and this one happens to tick the boxes.
It could very well be the sunshine that made everything appear so beautiful but the film’s location was actually a highlight, thanks to all that light and colour. Director Greg Berlanti’s movie deals well with a good amount of the challenges that come with being a teenager (gay or not) in high school in America. And he does this without delving too much into the darker aspects. This is a drama/comedy/romance after all.
Performance-wise, Robinson and the rest of the cast do a good job in their roles, including the annoying character who I’m sure I found especially irritating because he was supposed to be. The good news is that he does eventually become less so, both to me and everyone else in the story.
I write all the above to say that I’m a fan of Love, Simon because it’s well done. I also love what it means for representation. Watch it because it’s good and ‘feel good’.
Greg Berlanti directs Nick Robinson, Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhamel in Love, Simon; a new coming-of-age drama about the hilarious, scary, life-changing and complicated love story of a young closeted gay man…
As a friend pointed out, this movie may just be the first mainstream teen film where the central story is about the coming out of a young gay man. This isn’t a thing I’ve seen before. I could be wrong of course, but at this moment, I recall no other mainstream teenage movie with a gay male protagonist.
The trailer for the Michael Bay directed fifth Transformers movie, Transformers – The Last Knight starring Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins and Stanley Tucci is finally here…
I loved the first Tranformers film; the one that starred Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox. The second instalment was so disappointing that I haven’t yet been able return to the franchise.
Maybe I’ll watch this because of the special effects and Anthony Hopkins – but really, I think this may be a movie most ideal for those who love big fiery explosions more than the average amount – which of course is absolutely fine.
