In Winchester – The House That Ghosts Built Helen Mirren is an eccentric firearm heiress who believes that she’s being haunted by the souls of people killed by the Winchester repeating rifle. Jason Clarke and Sarah Snook also star while Peter and Michael Spierig write / direct…
For some reason it crossed my mind after watching this trailer that there maybe an interesting twist in this story. I’m interested because it’s Helen Mirren and I’m hoping that the horrors are more like those in Crimson Peak (2015) rather than something that will induce nightmares for me.
Written and directed by film making brothers Michael and Peter Spierig, Predestination is a well acted mystery / sci-fi film, starring Ethan Hawke and Sarah Snook.
Due to the time travelling element, this is the kind of movie with plenty going on including a number of twists and turns that come quick and fast, so you’ll certainly need to be ready and alert.
As I watched, I found myself comparing Predestination to it’s more thrilling cousin, Inception (2010). Not that both films deal with the same subject matter exactly… but among other things, it didn’t help that one of the characters in the movie looked like a younger version of one of the Actors in Inception. I’ll let you figure out which one.
Watch it anyway if science fiction and particularly time travel are generally your thing. I’m only into sci-fi sometimes.
Ethan Hawke has been very busy. A fact that makes me, an eternal fan of great acting talent, a very happy so and so. With more than 5 releases out this year, including the already very well received Boyhood, who can blame me?
A sci-fi thriller from sibling Directors, Michael and Peter Spierig, the premise of Predestination is time travel for the purpose of preventing crimes from taking place. I say the trailer is quite promising. See for yourself:
Did Tom Cruise’s Minority Report (2002) come to mind as this preview played?
