The Art Of racing In The Rain is a new Simon Curtis directed comedy / drama starring Milo Ventimiglia, Kevin Costner and Amanda Seyfried.

Costner lends his voice to a golden retriever named Enzo as he recalls the life lessons he’s learned from his race car driving owner, Denny…

A part of me half-seriously suspects that this movie was made to make more people into dog owners. For me, perhaps one day but I’m really watching for two reasons which are Ventimiglia and the fact that Kevin Costner has lent his rather pleasant voice to represent this very gorgeous canine.

Gary Cole, Kathy Baker, Al Sapienza, Martin Donovan, Karen Holness and also star.

The Art Of Racing In The Rain Release Dates: August 9th, 2019 (US); November 8th, 2019 (UK) …

In new crime / drama The Highwaymen, Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson are two police officers who have come out of retirement to catch infamous bank robbing outlaws Bonnie & Clyde.

Directed by John Lee Hancock; additional key cast includes Kathy Bates, Thomas Mann, Kim Dickens, John Carroll Lynch…

I haven’t watched a Bonnie & Clyde movie for a long time and I definitely don’t remember the story focusing mainly on the officers trying to catch the outlaws. As such, I’m rather looking forward to this seemingly fresh perspective.

I also didn’t realise I’d missed seeing Kevin Costner in a movie until I saw him here. How can I not miss him when I loved his character in Hidden Figures (2016) so much?

W. Earl Brown, David Furr, and Brian F. Durkin also star.

The Highwaymen Release Dates: March 29th, 2019 (US)…

Aaron Sorkin, a Hollywood name most film lovers know purely for his great screenwriting abilities has directed an exciting looking drama. Starring Idris Elba, Jessica Chastain, Michael Cera and Kevin Costner, Molly’s Game is a true story about an Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game and became an FBI target…

I’m excited for reasons including the fact that I really enjoy Aaron Sorkin’s writing. As such, I’m hoping that his directing will be great too. The paring of Elba and Chastain is one I didn’t know I wanted to see until I just saw it. Fingers crossed that this movie turns out really well.

Chris O’Dowd, Rachel Skarsten and Bill Camp also star.

Molly’s Game Release Dates: November 22nd, 2017 (US), December 29th, 2017 (UK)…

HIDDEN FIGURES (2016): For The Sisterhood, Strength & Determination

Hidden Figures, the movie about the three African American women whose mathematical contributions led to NASA’s first successful space missions is a film that did two important things for me. First it gave myself and many others a long overdue history lesson and second, it reminded me that that even though there’s still a considerable way to go, humanity really has come quite the distance in terms of equality and civil rights.

Seeing the challenges faced by the film’s main characters, the ways they dealt with the obstacles they encountered is really a great and empowering thing for anyone to witness. I particularly adore the sisterhood, strength, determination and good humour between them. By them I of course mean  Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson. I see these ladies as the kind of women with personal attributes that many would  probably want for the women and young girls in their life. And I’m not even talking about the mathematical genius.

Starring Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae, there really is no faulting any of the performances in Hidden Figures. Director Theodore Melfi’s movie is a good example of what a well-put-together film can look like. Watch it because it’s thoroughly deserving of all its success. It’s also a beautiful celebration of truly great women and the people good and brave enough to do what was necessary to help them shine.

Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst, Jim Parsons, Glen Powell and Mahershala Ali also star.

Starring Taraji P Henson, Janelle Monae and Octavia Spencer, Hidden Figures tells the true story of 3 African American women whose mathematical abilities / contributions led to NASA’s first successful space missions..

I just love when people achieve far more than other’s expectations of their abilities. Taraji P. Henson and Octavia are wonderful actresses so i can’t wait to see the inspiring story of mathematician Katherine Johnson on the big screen.

Jim Parsons, Kevin Costner and Kirsten Dunst also star while Theodore Melfi directs.

If you know about the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), then you know what Mix Martial Arts is, the increasingly popular sport that has just sold to a group of investors for $4bn, making it the largest franchise sale in sports history.

Directed by Vlad Yudin, The Hurt Business looks at the rise of the sport through the eyes of its biggest stars including Chuck Liddell, Ronda Rousey, Jon Jones, Kenny Florian and Tito Ortiz…

I’m not a watcher of MMA myself but I am curious about the fighters.

Lastly, well done, trailer maker.

CRIMINAL (2016): New Trailer Starring Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Costner & Gal Gadot

The plot of Criminal involves the planting of a deceased persons skills and memories into another individual. Sounds a lot like sci-fi to me, But it’s the brand new  action / drama from director of The Iceman (2012), Ariel Vroman. Ryan Reynolds, Gary Oldman, Kevin Costner and Gal Gadot are the stars…

This trailer, though not perfect, I’m interested. The involvement of Gary Oldman and Tommy Lee Jones gives me the most hope.

I’m curious as to why, knowing the outline of the plot as I do… I wonder why Criminal isn’t categorised under sci-fi. Does its categorisetion really mean that science makes it possible for one person’s skills to be implanted into another? If so, forget Rosetta Stone; I’m acquiring Italian Language skills the new way!

Criminal Release Dates: April 15th, 2016 (US & UK)…
