The trailer for the long awaited DC Comics Harley Quinn movie, Birds Of Prey – And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn. is finally here.
Directed by Cathy Yan, this new story starts after Quinn (Margot Robbie) splits up with the Joker and joins three female superheroes. Namely Black Canary, Huntress and Renee Montoya. Their mission being to save the life of a little girl from an evil crime lord…
I’m in because maybe finally all the excitement and yelping with delight that was a result of me seeing Quinn in the Suicide Squad trailer can deliver on its promise. Fingers, toes and everything crossed. There’s still hope because Robbie is great.
Derek Wilson, Matthew Willig, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Chris Messina, Rosie Perez, Charlene Amoia, Isabel Pakzad and Ali Wong Also star.
Bombshell is a new biography / drama starring Margot Robbie, Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman.
Directed by Jay Roach, Bombshell is based on the true story of the women who decided to take on Fox News boss Roger Ailes and the toxic male culture he presided at the network…
As this trailer played, I thought… ‘That’s definitely Margot Robbie and I think that’s Charlize Theron. And look! Nicole Kidman?‘ In other words, well done to the makeup and prosthetics people.
I’m sure this will be great, though I imagine, also not the easiest to watch. Looking forward to hearing all the ladies speak in the accents of Megyn Kelly (Theron), Kayla Pospisil (Robbie) and Gretchen Carlson (Kidman).
Connie Britton, Allison Janney, Alice Eve, Kate McKinnon, Alanna Ubach, Stephen Root, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Nazanin Boniadi, John Lithgow and Elisabeth Röhm also star.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino’s latest film starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Al Pacino and Margot Robbie has a new trailer.
Ready or not, here is a 2.5 minute tease of a crime / drama / thriller about a TV actor and his stunt double, as they embark on making a name for themselves in the film industry….
So far, I must admit that Once Upon A Time In Hollywood has not quite garnered the same kind of excitement within me as Tarantino’s previous films. I blame that on this trailer appearing to be a slight change of pace / style compared to Tarantino’s other movies. Nevertheless, I still can’t wait to see how he’ll keep things interesting. I mean, the man has never before let us down, right?
There are a number of things including the history lesson that made me want to watch Mary Queen Of Scots; the story of the troubled relationship between Elizabeth I, Queen of England, and her cousin Mary Stuart.
Considering that director Josie Rourke’s film is a costume drama, I’d hoped to see lots of sumptuous clothing design, in addition to very well written dialogue delivered by great actors. The film’s trailer even had me expecting something not too far from as epic as director Shekhar Kapur and Cate Blanchett’s Elizabeth (1998).Unfortunately for me, things didn’t quite transpire that way.
Starring Margot Robbie, Saoirse Ronan, Joe Alwyn and Guy Pearce, there certainly were a handful of well designed costumes to enjoy. Yet it’s the few moments of beautiful visuals – especially outdoor cinematography that proved most arresting for me. Even more so than the dialogue and general story editing which I have to admit had me less engaged and interested than I envisioned I’d be.
It’s likely that in addition to finding the story more dull than anticipated, my interest also started to diminish in part because of how distressing sitting through the sexism and misogyny proved to be.
Just like my recent review of On The Basis of Sex (2018), another historical drama, it’s the part near the very end that I liked most about Mary Queen Of Scots. Meaning, everything from the moment the two royals finally meet. Actually, even with that said, I still choose the few visually arresting moments over the dialogue and this telling of the Elizabeth I and Mary Stuart story.
Watch Mary Queen Of Scots if you absolutely must. As for myself, I think it’s time I re-watched the great Elizabeth (1998).
In The Lego Movie 2 – The Second Part, it’s just five years since everything was awesome, but now LEGO DUPLO® invaders from outer space are wrecking everything, and so the new threat must be dealt with.
Chris Pratt, Margot Robbie and Alison Brie star while Mike Mitchell and Trisha Gum direct…
I decided that I already like this movie simply because of the title – especially ‘the second part’ of it. Looking forward to all the humour and silliness.
Tiffany Haddish, Jonah Hill, Elizabeth Banks, Stephanie Beatriz, Channing Tatum, Nick Offerman, Will Arnett and Charlie Day also star.
From director Josie Rourke, Mary Queen Of Scots is a new historical drama about the relationship between Elizabeth I, Queen of England, and her cousin Mary Stuart.
Saoirse Ronan, Margot Robbie, Guy Pearce, Joe Alwyn and Gemma Chan star…
First of all, isn’t it special and interesting that two Australian actors have had the opportunity to play Elizabeth I on the big screen twenty years apart? Cate Blanchett’s performance in Elizabeth (1998) is still so powerful and fresh in my mind.
When I first saw Margot in this trailer, I wasn’t sure… but then as the trailer played some more, my faith increased. The real main reason I can’t wait to see this one is the brilliant Ronan. I just want to see her deliver all the great dialogue that wonderful way she knows how. I’ll also be marvelling at the visual spectacle of it all, of course.
Bring on the rivalry!
David Tennant, Brendan Coyle and Jack Lowden also star.
