Starring Christian Bale, Matt Damon, Jon Bernthal and Caitriona Balfe, Ford v Ferrari is a new action / drama from Logan (2017) director James Mangold.

It’s the true story of the battle between car manufacturers Ford and Ferrari to win Le Mans in 1966…

I like the pairing of Bale and Damon, and since this is an American movie, I guess we likely already know who ‘wins.’

I’m ready for the dialogue and humour. I also can’t help but wonder how differently the Italians might tell this story.

Ray McKinnon, Josh Lucas, JJ Feild, Noah Jupe, Stefania Spampinato, Tracy Letts, Wyatt Nash and Hélène Cardona also star.

Ford v Ferrari Release Dates: November 15th, 2019 (US &UK)…

Written / directed by Adam Mckay, Vice is the story of Dick Cheney, the most powerful Vice President in history, and how his policies changed the world as we know it.

Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Steven Carell and Sam Rockwell are among the key cast.

I’m certainly happy to let this brilliant cast teach me some things about American / World history. I actually didn’t realise how much I’d missed watching a Christian Bale movie until this trailer.

It’s true that I’d have liked to see Bale’s  everyday face but then he wouldn’t be playing this character. I’ll be remedying the situation by rewatching America Psycho (2000) and /or restarting the best Batman movies ever made, in my humble opinion.

Alison Pill, Jesse Plemons, Tyler Perry, Shea Whigham, Eddie Marsan, Lily Rabe and LisaGay Hamilton also star.

Vice Release Dates: Decemeber 21st, 2018 (US); February 9th, 2019 (UK)…

Directed by Andy Serkis, Mowgli is another live-action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s beloved adventure story, the one about an orphaned boy raised by wolves.

Key cast includes Rohan Chand, Benedict Cumberbatch, Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale, Matthew Rhys, Freida Pinto…

 

I’m interested to find out the ways in which this version of The Jungle Book story will differ from the rather good Jon Favreau directed version, The Jungle Book (2016).

Tom Hollander, Jack Reynor and Peter Mullan also star.

Mowgli Release Dates: 2019 (US & UK)…

Starring Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Ben Foster and Peter Mulan, Hostiles tells the story of what happened when in 1892, a legendary Army captain reluctantly agreed to escort a Cheyenne chief and his family through dangerous territory…

The brilliance that is Mr. Bale is the reason I’m tuning in. He embodies such screen presence, charisma and that’s before he even says a single word.

Directed by Scott Cooper; Jesse Plemons, Stephen Lang, Paul Anderson and Q’orianka Kilcher also star.

THE PROMISE (2016): New Trailer From Oscar Isaac, Christian Bale, Charlotte Le Bon…

Starring Christian Bale, Oscar Isaac and Charlotte Le Bon, the backdrop of The Promise is the last days of the Ottoman Empire/ the Armenian genocide. The heart of the movie is a love triangle – one between the beautiful, sophisticated Ana, a renowned American journalist and a brilliant medical student…

I’m curious about The Promise mostly because of the talented Mr Bale but also because of the controversy surrounding the subject matter, the Armenian Genocide. At time of writing, The Promise hasn’t  even been properly released yet except at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival on September 11th; yet it has a very poor IMDB score of 1.8 out of 10, the lowest I’ve ever seen on the site. I refuse to believe that Christian Bale would choose to be in a movie as terrible as the score suggests. Unfortunately, I can’t quite say the same for Oscar Isaac – on account of Mojave (2015). I digress. My guess is that those opposing the movie for political reasons have decided to do what they can to deter others from seeing it. If that’s the case, time will tell how well that’s going to work.

The Promise Release Dates: 2016 (US)…
