The trailer for Norman, the latest movie starring Dan Stevens, Richard Gere, Michael Sheen and Steve Buscemi looks peculiar. Witten and directed by Joseph Cedar, Norman is the story of Norman Oppenheimer, a small time operator who befriends a young politician at a low point in his life. Three years later, when the politician becomes an influential world leader, Norman’s life dramatically changes for better and worse…
May the changes that happen in Norman’s life make for very interesting viewing because the cast is good. I’m also quite curious about what it really takes to be a so-called ‘operator.’
Charlotte Gainsbourg, Lior Ashkenazi and Jonathan Avigdori also star.
Passengers is the new sci-fi / adventure movie starring Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt and Michael Sheen. Everything takes place aboard a spacecraft that’s en route to a distant colony planet whilst carrying thousands of people. Things get particularly interesting when a malfunction in the spacecraft’s sleep chambers results in two passengers being prematurely awakened – 90 years earlier than planned…
Indeed the acting star power of this movie is off the charts. But the thing that excites me most is the fact that Passengers is directed by Morten Tyldum, the man behindThe Imitation Game – one of 2014’s very best movies. I can’t wait to see how well this story is constructed. My eyes definitely glistened at ‘You die, I die!’
Laurence Fishburne, Marie Burke and Aurora Perrineau also star.
7 Days In Hell is HBO’s new sports comedy/ TV movie starring Andy Samberg, Kit Harrington, Mary Steenburgen, Fred Armisen and many more including Serena Williams and John McEnroe who play versions of themselves.
Shot in the style of a documentary expose, the TV movie focuses on the rivalry between two fictional tennis players, known to be the greatest of all time and their 2004 match that lasted 7 days. The concept is definitely nuts, but in the very best way.
All I know of Kit Harrington is that he is / was in that massively successful TV Show, Game Of Thrones, a series I’m still yet to watch, but something tells me that his Seven Days In Hell character, Charles Poole is very different to Jon Snow in an exciting way.
I’m expecting great performances from the entire cast, but besides Kit Harrington’s character, I really hope there’s plenty of Fred Armisen as the Tennis Historian because my, that accent is really rather good / brilliantly entertaining.
