Set in the first century C.E, Mary Magdalene is a new drama about controversial biblical character, friend and follower of Jesus ChristMary Magdalene

Garth Davis directs while Rooney MaraJoaquin Phoenix and Chiwetel Ejiofor star…

I don’t know that Phoenix as Jesus Christ feels like a perfect casting instinctually. However I’m very open to be proven wrong, especially since Phoenix is quite the talent.

Also, not that this movie will be as brutal as Mel Gibson’s The Passion of The Christ (2004) –  but I kind of don’t want to sign up to witness all that violence again. It’s a tough one since I want to watch the story of Mary Magdalene, sadly there’s just no telling her story without Jesus particularly because she’s with him till the very unfortunate end. What to do, what to do…

Sarah-Sofie Boussnina, Ariane Labed, Ryan Corr, Tahar Rahim and Lubna Azabal also star.

In A Ghost Story, Casey Affleck is a deceased husband who returns as a ghost in a white sheet to re-connect with his grieving wife (Rooney Mara)…

Written and directed by David Lowery, what I like most about this trailer, besides its main star Rooney Mara is the featured music. As for my feelings about the film, I have to confess that it all looks mighty depressing – unlike 1990’s Ghost. Therefore I’ll just make sure I’m in the right mood for it. By which I don’t mean a depressed mood. Merely a mood where I’m open to the ‘exploration of legacy, love, loss, and the enormity of existence’ – for approximately two hours.

Celebrated filmmaker Terrence Malick has a new movie starring Natalie Portman, Rooney Mara, Michael Fassbender and Ryan Gosling. Song To Song is about two intersecting love triangles set against the music scene in Austin, Texas…

I want this to be great because I’m a fan of everyone involved. I especially want this to be better than Malick’s previous movie Knight Of Cups (2015), which I’m yet to see but I know the reception wasn’t great. On another note, I’m going to guess that both trailers were edited by the very same person, probably.

Song To Song Release Dates: March 17th, (2017); 2017 (UK)…

Starring Rooney Mara, Robert Redford and Jason Segel, The Discovery is set one year after the existence of the afterlife is scientifically verified, resulting in millions around the world killing themselves in order to ‘get there…’

Directed and co-written by Charlie McDowell, the concept is simply too interesting not to tune in and I’m sure it’s safe to say that all is not as it seems.

The Discovery Release Dates: March 31st, 2017 (US)…

Riz Ahmed, Rooney Mara and Ben Mendelsohn’s latest film Una is based on the playwright David Harrower’s play Blackbird, a story about a young woman’s journey to reclaim her past. After seeing the photo of a man she used to know as a young girl, she tracks him down and shows up unexpectedly…

This I’m curious about because of the talented cast; Riz Ahmed was brilliant in Nightcrawler (2014), Ben Mendelsohn had a great turn in Starred Up (2013)  and last but not least, Rooney Mara, an actress of  only so far seen fully in The Social Network (2010).

Tobias Menzies, Tara Fitgerald and Isobelle Molloy also star.

LION (2016): New Trailer Starring Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, Nicole Kidman…

Lion, directed by Garth Davis and starring Dev Patel, Rooney Mara and Nicole Kidman tells the true story of Saroo Brierley, a young boy separated from his family in Calcutta at age five and his journey to find them 25 years later…

Slumdog Millionnaire (2008) is the last great Dev Patel movie I saw. I’m sure there’s a handful I’ll get to soon but I’d really like to start with Lion. I can’t wait for the  happy ending – if only  for all the other times when the real life endings are far from happy.

David Wenham, Tannishtha Chatterjee and Benjamin Rigby also star.

Lion Release Dates: October 12th, 2016 (UK); November 26th, 2016 (US)
