Dave Bautista, Kristen Cui, Jonathan Groff, Ben Aldridge and Nikki Amuka-Bird are the cast of Knock at the Cabin, the latest horror/mystery/thriller from M. Night Shyamalan.

At the centre of the story of a young family taken hostage by armed strangers. Strangers who demand the family decide what they believe, in order to make an unthinkable decision.

I’ve seen this trailer approximately four times now, and the one thing that has stayed consistent regarding my thoughts is how wonderful a young actor Kristen Cui, the young girl in this movie, seems to be.

Another thing that hasn’t changed with each viewing is how promising it all seems. That is until towards the end when Bautista’s character says: ‘…Your family has been chosen to make a horrible decision. If you fail to choose, the world will end.’

After all that engaging mystery, I’m sad to say that I find myself disappointed by this seemingly simplistic and somewhat underwhelming turn of events. I’m very likely judging far too soon, of course, and I may just have tired of the ‘or the world will end.’ However, there is Shyamalan’s reputation, which most certainly precedes him.

What are your feelings about this trailer? Is it time for a good Shyamalan movie? Fingers crossed that I’m way off – and Knock at the Cabin turns out to be great.

Abby Quinn, Jerry Lobrow, William Ragsdale, Clare Louise Frost, Kat Murphy, Debbie Lay, Satomi Hofmann, McKenna Kerrigan, Mike Wilson, Michael J. Kraycik, Scott Vogel and Brian Foreman also star.

Knock at the Cabin Release Dates: February 3rd, 2023 (US & UK)…

Directed and co-written by Zack Snyder; Army of the Dead is a new action/crime/horror about a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas. In the midst of it all, a group of mercenaries decide to take the ultimate gamble, and venture into the quarantine zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.

Garret Dillahunt, Dave Bautista, Ella Purnell and Ana de la Reguera star.

I love the synopsis of the movie, in part because it brings to mind good memories of watching un heist movie, Ocean’s Eleven (2001). And my favourite zombie film, Train to Busan (2016).

Hopefully this will be the perfect mix of both genres.

Nora Arnezeder, Samantha Win, Matthias Schweighöfer, Lyon Beckwith, Theo Rossi, Tig Notaro, Michael Cassidy, Omari Hardwick, Lora Martinez-Cunningham and Raúl Castillo also star.

Army of the Dead Release Dates: May 21st, 2021 (US)…

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

Dave Bautista, Kumail Nanjiani, Karen Gillian and Iko Uwais are the stars of new action / comedyStuber.

Directed by Michael Dowse, Bautista plays a detective who recruits his Uber driver (Nanjiani) into an unexpected night of adventure…

The pairing of Bautista and Nanjiani looks like a great idea with very entertaining results. Just the previous day I mentioned having not seen Bautista in many roles where he’s the lead. And now we have two in a row. I’m definitely not in any way complaining.

Natalie Morales, Betty Gilpin, Mira Sorvino, Jimmy Tatro, Joshua Mikel, Scott Lawrence and Christine Horn also star.

Stuber Release Dates: July 12th, 2019 (US & UK)…

In Peter Segal directed family movie My Spy, Dave Bautista is JJ, a hardened CIA operative sent to surveil the family of a precocious 9 year-old name Sophie. In no time at all, JJ finds himself at the mercy of Sophie’s disarming charm and wit.

Other key cast members include Chloe Colman, Ken Jeong, Kristen Schaal…

I’m quite sure that My Spy will be the first movie I see with Bautista as the lead. It’s a little bit the story but really, it’s mostly the onscreen chemistry between Bautista and young Coleman that has me most curious.

On a side note, Dwayne Johnson definitely did cross my mind as this trailer played and I’m sure you know why; wink, wink.

Michelle McLeod, Parisa Fitz-Henley, Nicola Correia-Damude, Laura Cilevitz, Sima Fisher, Ali Hassan and Marcus Cornwall also star.

My Spy Release Dates: August 23rd, 2019 (US); August 30th, 2019 (UK)…
