Director Simon Kinberg’s X-Men – Dark Phoenix has a good looking new trailer.

Starring Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and Sophie Turner, X-Men – Dark Phoenix is all about their team member Jean Grey’s new incredible corrupting powers and how the rest of the X-Men deal with it…

I’m in to enjoy the stunning visual effects and find out if Jean Grey will fully embrace her dark side. Before doing all that though, I’m a tad behind so I just need to watch all the movies after X-Men First Class (2011).

Evan Peters, Alexandra Shipp, Ato Essandoh, Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Summer Fontana also star.

X-Men Dark Phoenix Release Dates: June 7th, 2019 (UK & US)…

X-MEN – DARK PHOENIX (2019): New Trailer From James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner…

In X-Men Dark Phoenix, the X-Men must decide if the life of a team member is worth more than all the people living in the world. Reason being, Jean Grey has began to develop incredible corrupting powers that will turn her into a Dark Phoenix.

Directed by Simon Kinberg; key cast includes James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner…

I just recently finished watching Captain America – Civil War (2016) and the plot of Dark Phoenix reminds me of  it. I’m blaming that for my slightly subdued enthusiasm. Well, that and the fact that this trailer didn’t quite induce the expected yelp of excitement it’s predecessors did. I actually thought that the Lawrence, McAvoy and Fassbender phase of X-Men had been wrapped up. I’m not mad that it hasn’t yet, but I just wish that overall, this trailer had me more enthused.

My favourite line so far is ‘I’ve seen evil, and I’m looking at it now.’ It’s therefore unsurprising that what I’m most excited about overall is Sophie Turners ‘good girl gone bad’ performance.

Tye Sheridan, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, Alexandra Shipp, Ato Essandoh and Summer Fontana also star.

THE LIGHT BETWEEN OCEANS (2016): The Thing I Liked…

The Light Between Oceans is directed by Derek Cianfrance and based on M.L. Stedman’s novel about a couple raising the baby they rescued from a drifting rowing boat. The performances from Rachel Weisz, Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander are all good.

For me, The Light Between Oceans is a beautiful romance. Though definitely heartbreaking and featuring a number of morally questionable acts, the idea of the love between the lead characters as portrayed by Fassbender and Vikander is beautiful.

On account of the repercussions that resulted out of the questionable acts in this movie, by the end I was well and truly reminded of the importance of properly thinking through the options we allow ourselves to be coerced into choosing. Especially when the blindness of love and an all-consuming desperation are thrown into the mix. This, for me is a highlight of this film. I also very much enjoyed Vikander’s character’s forwardness in regards to her love life. Refreshing is one word for it.

On balance, I can’t say that I was able to enjoy The Light Between Oceans as much as I could have and that’s partly because the trailer revealed too much, which in turn contributed to the end result being quite unexciting. I suppose what I may never know is just how much more thrilling I may have found this movie had I never seen the trailer.

Watch it if you absolutely must. Just don’t misremember that I said you absolutely should.

ALIEN – COVENANT (2017): New Trailer From Michael Fassbender, James Franco, Carmen Ejogo…

Michael Fassbender, James Franco and Carmen Ejogo’s Ridley Scott directed new movie Alien – Covenant has an an excellently scary new trailer…

I remember being absolutely terrified after watching the original Alien (1979) movie. Maybe, just maybe I’ll be brave for this. Either that or this trailer is as far as my ‘peaceful sleep loving’ behind is going to get. Who knows, 2017 still could  be a year in which I surprise myself…

Alien – Covenant is the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS, and is linked to the original  Alien movie.

TRESPASS AGAINST US (2016): New Trailer From Michael Fassbender, Brendan Gleeson…

Trespass Against Us is Michael Fassbender’s new movie. Also starring Brendan Gleeson and directed by Adam Smith, Fassbender is a member of an outlaw family who’s trying to escape the criminal life…

I’m not a big fan of this trailer edit. I don’t like what it suggests about the quality of the movie. Nevertheless I remain curious especially about what it is that may have appealed to Fassbender, besides the chance to speak in his country’s accent, of course.

Trespass Against Us Release Dates: October 14th, 2016 (UK); November 24th, 2016 (US)…

Today’s trailer is for Assassin’s Creed and it’s exciting, particularly for fans of the computer game. I’m very happy because the trailer looks great and the movie’s stars are Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard…

Trailer 1

Trailer 2

Though I’ve never played the game,  I’m aware of it because it’s popular and I love the artwork,  including Aguilar’s costume. This may or may not mean that I have a crush on a computer game character…

The director is Justin Kurzel who has also worked with Fassbender and Cotillard in the visually stunning Macbeth (2015)

Brendan Gleeson, Brian Gleeson and Jeremy Irons also star.

Assassin’s Creed Release Dates: December 21st, 2016 (US & FR); December 30th, 2016 (UK); January 5th, 2017 (GER)…

Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander’s latest movie is based on a best selling book by M.L. Stedman. Director Derek Cianfrance’s film is about a couple who raise a baby they found adrift  on a rowboat…

A heartbreaking tale and streams of tears are guaranteed. I’ll tune in anyway because of  Fassbender’s performance.

Of course it would have been great if  this trailer hadn’t given away so much already. What to do, what to do…

The Light Between Oceans Release Dates: September 2nd 2016 (US); January 6th, 2017 (UK)…
