Directed by Thomas Vinterberg, Kursk is a historical drama about the 2000 K-141 Kursk submarine disaster and the governmental negligence that followed.

Colin Firth, Matthias Schoenaerts and Léa Seydoux star…

The trailer makes me eager to watch Kursk because of Schoenaerts, Firth and Seydoux. I’m only slightly hesitant because I feel as though it’s going to make me mad. You know, on account of all the reasons the ending won’t be as happy.

Michael Nyqvist, August Diehl, Steven Waddington, Zlatko Buric, Matthias Schweighöfer and Joel Basman also star.

In the Francis Lawrence directed Red Sparrow which stars Jennifer Lawrence, Matthias Schoenaerts, Joel Edgerton and Jeremy Irons, a Russian spy falls for a CIA officer and considers becoming a double agent…

I’m in because the cast is great. I also want to see how it  all unfolds since the story is already being compared to that of Angelina Jolie’s Salt (2010) as well as Marvel’s Black Widow.

Joely Richardson, Ciarán Hinds, Charlotte Rampling and Mary-Louise Parker also star.

Red Sparrow Release Dates: March 2nd, 2018, (US & UK); March 1st, 2018 (GER)…

In Our Souls At Night, Jane Fonda and Robert Redford play a widow and widower who’ve lived next to each other for years. The pair have almost no relationship but that all changes when…

I haven’t seen Schoenaerts in a new movie for a while and I really want to. Thestory which intrigues me a little and Jane Fonda, I appreciate because of her great work in Grace & Frankie, Youth (2015). There’s also her interviews in The Hollywood Reporter Roundtables.

Directed by Ritesh Batra, Bruce Dern, Michael Love Toliver and Phyllis Somerville also star.

Our Souls At Night Release Dates: 2017 (US)…

DISORDER (2015): New Trailer Starring Matthias Schoenaerts & Diane Kruger

In Disorder, a.k.a Maryland, Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts is a highly capable bodyguard sufferring from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Diane Kruger is the wife of a wealthy but absent Lebanese businessman. If you try just a little, I could be wrong but you can probably guess  how  the story is likely to unfold…

My thoughts about the trailer include words like dangerous,sexy, thriller, Matthias Schoenaerts, etc., etc.

All that remains is for the movie to be as good as the trailer hints. Disorder is subtitled  but if you want to see Schoenaerts in English speaking roles, try The Drop (2014) and The Danish Girl (2015). He’s wonderful in both.

Written and directed by  Alice Winocour, the cast also features Paul Hamy and Victor Pontecorvo.

Disorder (Maryland) Release Dates: March 25th, 2016 (UK); August 19th, 2016 (US)…

THE DANISH GIRL (2015): For The Story Of Courage…

Directed by Tom Hooper, The Danish Girl is a love story based on a book of the same name by  David Ebershoff. The lives of real people / artists in the 1930s, Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener is at the centre of Hooper’s film. We meet the pair in the lead up to the point that Lili’s journey into becoming a transgender pioneer begins.

Considering the movie’s subject matter and the period in which The Danish Girl is set, you’d be right to assume that life was not easy for Lili long before and especially the moment she decided to be her true self. I find myself very glad to have been exposed to Lili and Gerda’s story at a time when, though very slowly indeed, humanity would appear to be moving in the right direction –  at least as far as the LGBTQ cause is concerned. Everything feels more hopeful as a result.

Performance-wise, though Eddie Redmayne disappointed me with what I’ve come to describe as the career blip of a movie that was Jupiter Ascending (2014). He’s of course still great thanks to The Theory Of Everything (2014) and now, The Danish Girl.

In her role as Gerder Wegener, I was impressed by Alicia Vikander’s performance. I only wish that I could say that I feel the same about her character’s wigs. Last but absolutely not least, Matthias Schoenearts. It’s simple really; I knew this after watching The Drop  (2014) but I absolutely must watch more of his movies. His work in he Danish Girl is perfectly measured. May we all be blessed with a friend as wise and thoughtful as his character, Hans.

My favourite part of the film overall is the ending. To say more would be to spoil, so if you haven’t already, watch it because it’s worthy.

A BIGGER SPLASH (2016): New Trailer Starring Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson & Ralph Fiennes

Directed by Luca Guadagnino, A Bigger Splash is a new mystery / crime / drama starring Matthias Schoenaertz, Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson and Ralph Fiennes…

I rather like the vibe of the trailer but not just because it seems to be set in sunny Italy. The music, editing and the little we now know about the characters and tensions so far has me mighty curious.

At this stage it’s probably a safe bet that for the characters of A Bigger Splash, things are unlikely to end well. Also Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008) randomly came to mind… I need to re-watch that movie.

A Bigger Splash Release Date(s): February 12, 2016 (UK);  May 13th 2016 (US)…

If watching The Theory Of Everything (2014) wasn’t enough to awaken you to the considerable acting talents of Eddie Redmayne, the new trailer for his latest Tom Hooper directed movie, The Danish Girl should be enough to inform you of what’s what…

Alicia Vikander, Ben Whishaw, Matthias Schoenaerts and Amber Heard also star.
