THE OLD GUARD (2020): The Things I Liked…

The Old Guard, an action/fantasy about a covert team of immortal mercenaries is not a bad film. However, though everyone performed well, for me, the movie tended to shine best when the camera was on its main character, Andy (Charlize Theron).

Another thing that director Gina Prince-Bythewood’s movie does well is the fight choreography; the kind that had me wanting to see the behind the scenes rehearsals as soon as possible. Especially for the major sequence towards the end.

As far as action/fantasies go, The Old Guard’s story is a good one and perfect for a sequel which I’d watch right away if it were possible. As you watch Theron, KiKi Layne, and Matthias Schoenaerts’s, another bit of good news is that it gets better as you continue to watch and it’s unlikely you’ll be able to guess everything that’s going to happen as the story unfolds.

What you probably should expect though is to be moved, because The Old Guard is definitely fun but it’s also more moving than you may anticipate and there’s certainly a lot more to love than not.

THE OLD GUARD (2020): New Trailer Starring Charlize Theron, Matthias Schoenaerts, Chiwetel Ejiofor, KiKi Lane…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of The Old Guard (2020).


Charlize Theron, Matthias Schoenaerts, Chiwetel Ejiofor and KiKi Lane are the stars of The Old Guard, a new fantasy/action movie directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood.

Theron plays the leader of a covert team of immortal mercenaries who are suddenly exposed, just as an unexpected new member is discovered. And so begins the fight to keep their identity a secret.

All this business of rapid healing has me intrigued, and I also find myself suddenly suspicious of Lane’s character.

I already know that Schoenaerts and Theron will be great. Fingers crossed for another good mercenary action movie from Netflix, especially considering the fun I had with Chris Hemsworth’s Extraction (2020).

Harry Melling, Natacha Karam, Marwan Kenzari, Van Veronica Ngo, Anamaria Marinca, Luca Marinelli, Adam Collins, Joey Ansah, Tuncay Gunes and Russell Balogh also star.

The Old Guard Release Dates: July 10th, 2020, Netflix/ Internet…

Directed by Justin Lin, Vin Diesel, Charlize Theron, John Cena, Helen Mirren and Michelle Rodriguez are the stars of the ninth Fast & Furious movie, Fast & Furious 9

The seemingly unbelievable stunts have me interest – especially for the entertainment value and/ or potential giggles, because I admit I was definitely amused as this trailer played.

Then there’s Theron, Cena and… did I see London, England as a location? These are the reasons for my interest.

Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris, Jim Parrack, Lucas Black, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Michael Rooker, Finn Cole, Cardi B, Tyrese Gibson and Anna Sawai also star.

Fast & Furious 9 Release Dates: April 2nd, 2021 (US & UK)…

Trailer 2 for Bombshell, the true story of the women who took on Fox News boss Roger Ailes and the network’s toxic male culture has landed.

Is it just me or does December 20th suddenly feel very far away?

After this second trailer, now I really can’t wait to see Robbie, Kidman and Theron’s performances. Go ladies!

Bombshell is a new biography / drama starring Margot Robbie, Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman.

Directed by Jay Roach, Bombshell is based on the true story of the women who decided to take on Fox News boss Roger Ailes and the toxic male culture he presided at the network…

As this trailer played, I thought… ‘That’s definitely Margot Robbie and I think that’s Charlize Theron. And look! Nicole Kidman?‘ In other words, well done to the makeup and prosthetics people.

I’m sure this will be great, though I imagine, also not the easiest to watch. Looking forward to hearing all the ladies speak in the accents of Megyn Kelly (Theron), Kayla Pospisil (Robbie) and Gretchen Carlson (Kidman).

Connie Britton, Allison Janney, Alice Eve, Kate McKinnon, Alanna Ubach, Stephen Root, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Nazanin Boniadi, John Lithgow and Elisabeth Röhm also star.

THE ADDAMS FAMILY (2019): New Trailer From Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Oscar Isaac, Allison Janney…

Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz , Oscar Isaac and Allison Janney are the stars of the remake of the story of a peculiar, ghoulish family known as The Addams Family .

Directed by  Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon, the story is based on the much loved characters created by Charles Addams…

I’m definitely not mad that this remake exists. However, I can’t help but feel disappointed because this is animated rather than a live action version. I’d just have loved seeing the real Charlize Theron dressed up as Morticia Addams. I’d simply have absolutely loved it!

Lastly, seeing the strangeness of the Addams family has reminded me of the almost equally strange main family in the Hotel Transylvania movies. Anyone else?

Nick Kroll, Aimee Garcia, Finn Wolfhard, Scott Underwood, Bette Midler and Elsie Fisher also star.

The Addams Family Release Dates: October 11th, 2019 (US); October 25th, 2019 (UK)…

LONG SHOT (2019): New Trailer From Charlize Theron, Seth Rogen, Alexander Skarsgård…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Long Shot (2019).


Long Shot is the latest comedy starring Seth Rogen, Charlize Theron and Alexander Skarsgård.

Directed by Jonathan Levine, Rogen is Fred Flarsky, an unemployed journalist who decides to pursue his childhood crush. The only thing is, his childhood crush is Charlotte Field, one of the most powerful and unattainable women on the planet.

Rogen and Theron together seems surprising somehow, yet I definitely do love them both separately so I hope this really works.

Andy Serkis, Randall Park, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aviva Mongillo, James Saito and Ravi Patel also star.

Long Shot Release Dates: May 3rd, 2019 (US & UK)…

And so ensues adefinite change in the her life in the most unexpected ways.

I know it’s only January but this is already one of my favourite trailers of 2018. Right after the ‘frozen pizza, awesome’ comment, I was almost certain that the next clip would show that she’d killed him. But then I realised that she of course had absolutely no energy left to spare.

Mark Duplass, Emily Haine, Marceline Hugot, Gameela Wright and Elaine Tan also star 

Tully Release Dates: April 20th, 2018 (US & UK)…
