Naomi Watts and Andrew Lincoln star in Penguin Bloom, a new drama about a family who take in an injured magpie that ends up making a profound difference in their lives.
Also starring Jacki Weaver and Rachel House, Penguin Bloom is directed by Glendyn Ivin.
Firstly, nice trailer. Second, I’m very interested in seeing how this story plays out. Particularly Watt’s characters journey through the five stages of grief.
I’m also curious about if and when a C.G.I. magpie was used, and excited to see Watts and Lincoln onscreen together. The latter of whom I’ve been a fan of ever since Teachers (2001-2003) – before he went stateside and starred in The Walking Dead.
Gia Carides, Leeanna Walsman, Lisa Hensley, Randolph Fields, Lisa Hensley and Donat Balaj also star.
Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, Tim Roth and Kelvin Harrison Jr. are the stars of Luce.
Directed by Julius Onah, Luce is the story of parents to an adopted son from war-torn Eritrea. Said parents are forced to reckon with their idealised image of their son, after an alarming discovery by a devoted high school teacher…
This rather good trailer edit has me scared. Scared for myself, scared for Spencer’s character because no one is listening to her and scared for Luce’s parents. I’m also very curious about what the alarming secret actually is.
We all know Watts and Spencer are great actors, so I can’t wait to see what Harrison does with this role. They do say that dark characters are more fun to play, after all.
Andrea Bang, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Norbert Leo Butz, Omar Brunson and Astro also star.
Starring Daisy Ridley, Naomie Watts, Clive Owen and Tom Felton, Ophelia is the Claire McCarthy directed re-imagining of William Shapeare’s famous Hamlet.
Set in medieval-era Denmark, the queen’s brightest lady-in-waiting Ophelia, finds herself drawn to Hamlet, the charismatic and elusive crown prince. Their secretive love affair begins and soon outside forces threaten to derail their union and devastate the royal family for good. Now Ophelia must decide where her devotion will ultimately lie.
I’m in to see the Hamlet story from this new perspective. I’m also equally interested to watch Ridley in a role other than her very high profile Star Wars projects.
Another thing, is it just me for whom Keira Knightly came to mind while I looked at Ridley in this trailer?
Devon Terrell, Sebastian De Souza, Dominic Mafham, Daisy Head, Adriana Hercigonja and Mia Quiney also star.
The perfectly titled The Glass Castle stars Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson and Naomi Watts. Written and directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, the story centres around a young girl’s coming of age in a poor, dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads…
The subject matter, this trailer and the actors have me so interested in this movie. Stories about parent / offspring relationships especially once the children are grown up are always interesting to me. Also, what wonderful roles these are for all the actors involved.
Starring Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts and Elisabeth Moss, Chuck is the story of the life of heavyweight boxer Chuck Wepner; the fighter that inspired Sylvester Stallone to write the Rocky movies…
I’m certainly not a major boxing fan since I haven’t yet watched any of the Rocky films. But I am interested in the story of the man who inspired them. Also, this looks like a great role for Schreiber.
You’d think that I’d be more than ready to watch a documentary about the very talented late actor Heath Ledger, nearly ten years after his untimely passing, but you’d be wrong. His deservedly revered performance in The Dark Knight (2008), remains one of the best character embodiments I’ve ever seen on screen; a performance so perfectly measured and mesmerising that I missed him terribly each time the camera pointed elsewhere.
Directed by Adrian Buitenhuis and Derik Murray, I Am Heath Ledger is a new documentary that celebrates Ledger’s life as an actor, artist and icon. Featuring interviews with those who knew him best personally and professionally, I Am Heath Ledger provides an intimate look through Ledger’s own camera as he films and often performs in his own personal journey…
I know that one day I’ll sit down and watch this documentary. That day will just take a little longer to get here.
Naomi Watts, Emile Hirsch, Djimon Hounsou, Ben Mendelsohn and Brokeback Mountain (2005) director Ang Lee are some of the friends and colleagues featured, along with family.
The Sea Of Trees stars Matthew McConaughey, Naomi Watts and Katie Aselton. It’s also the Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting 1997, Milk 2008) directed movie that was famously booed at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival…
Based on this trailer, I’d never have guessed that the movie is likely to be bad. All I’m sure of at this point, considering that love, grief and suicide are key themes is that a laugh a minute is unlikely to be words used to describe anyone’s experience of The Sea Of Trees.
My true reaction before realising that this is the movie that was booed was: ‘Yeah! Another Matthew McConaughey movie and it stars ken Watanabe too; an actor whose face I’ll always be glad to see because of the great work he did in one of my all time favourites, Inception (2010)’.
I think I’m going to give this movie a chance. I’m not promising that I’ll definitely make it to the very end, but I feel I must at least try.
Jake Gyllenhaal’s latest is directed by Jean-Marc Vallée a director known for Dallas Buyers Club (2013) and Wild (2014). Demolition is about the struggles of an investment banker after he loses his wife…
I saw the original trailer for Demolition a few months ago but that particular version didn’t quite sell the film to me. I remember getting a similar feeling to the one I experienced as I watched the trailer for Bradley Cooper’s Burnt (2015.
I like this version of the Demolition trailer better and I’ll be tuning in because it stars Jake Gyllenhaal. I’m also interested in finding out what it is that will eventually cause Davis Mitchell, the character Gyllenhaal plays to finally feel.
Chris Cooper, Heather Lind, Naomi Watts and Polly Draper also star.
