Joe Pesci, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Harvey Keitel are the stars of new biography / crime / drama The Irishman.
Directed by Martin Scorsese, the story centres around a mod hitman’s recollection of his possible involvement with the slaying of Jimmy Hoffa.
A link to the latest trailer released on July 31st 2019 can be found below.
The names of everyone in this movie is enough to get any serious movie fan very excited – and excited I certainly am. I also have to congratulate the creative mind behind the decision to have the shell float in the place of the letter I. I admit to yelping with delight at the beauty of the execution, especially when De Niro’s name came up. Then I had rewind to watch it again in case I imagined the whole thing; and a third time so I could actually listen to the dialogue.
No actual footage has even been released but I’m convinced that Autumn has never seemed so very far away.
Paterno is a Barry Levinson directed drama / biography about Joe Paterno, the most successful coach in college football history and how he became embroiled in Penn State’s Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal.
Riley Keough and Tess Frazer co-star…
I’ve been ready for a great Al Pacino performance. I’ve been waiting (for far too long in my opinion) and finally, it looks like this movie may just be what I’ve been waiting for. The scenes where Paterno is forced to face tough questions about institutional failure should be a highlight…. fingers crossed.
The Pirates Of Somalia is based on the true story of rookie journalist Jay Bahadur’s time with Somali pirates. Bahadur spent time with the pirates for the purpose of providing the first close-up look into who they are, the way they live and the forces that drive them. Directed by Bryan Buckley; Evan Peters, Al Pacino and Barkhad Abdi star..
This could be interesting. Though, at the same time this trailer could have done a better job of selling the movie. I’m not in love with the way it ends. On a separate note, it’s good to see Abdi of Captain Philips (2013) playing a non-pirate role, as far as I can tell.
Al Pacino, Karl Urban and Brittany Snow are the stars of Hangman, a Johnny Martin directed thriller about a homicide detective and a criminal profiler on the hunt for a serial killer…
Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman’s Se7en (1995) has me believing that in every serial killer movie, a member of the investigative team is going to die, or at the very least be targeted by the serial killer. I’m tuning in because of Pacino and the story. I actually haven’t watched a good serial killer drama since the earlier seasons of The Mentalist. I live in hope.
