Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson and Alex Sharp are the stars of How to Talk to Girls at Parties, a John Cameron Mitchell directed comedy / romance about an alien. An alien that’s touring the galaxy but breaks away from her group and meets two young inhabitants of the most dangerous place in the universe – the London suburb of Croydon…

I’m in for the alien activity and the costumes. I also can’t say that I didn’t find the line in the official synopsis about Croydon amusing.

THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER (2017): New Trailer From Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Alicia Silverstone, Barry Keoghan…

Co-written and directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, The Killing of a Sacred Deer stars Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Alicia Silverstone and Barry Keoghan. At the heart of the story is a charismatic surgeon who’s forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice after his life starts to fall apart and  the behaviour of a teenage boy he has taken under his wing turns sinister…

I remember enjoying The Lobster (2015), – the last Yorgos Lanthimos movie I watched. Therefore, I’m thinking and hoping  that  this is unlikely to disappoint. There’s also the wonderfully full beard that Colin Farrell is sporting. I at least need to look at that a little more.

THE BEGUILED (2017): New Trailer Starring Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning…

In The Beguiled, Colin Farrell plays a wounded Union soldier who cons his way into the hearts of the women in a Confederate girls’ boarding school. Soon enough, the women turn against each other but then they get smart and turn on him. Directed by Sofia Coppola; other acting talent includes Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning and Angourie Rice…

I find this trailer promising, especially because of the cast. I want to be even more excited but after The Bling Ring (2013) – the last Sofia Coppola directed movie I saw which I did not enjoy as much as expected,  I’ll wait and see;  in a very calm and perfectly balanced manner. Also this is a remake of the 1971 movie of the same name starring Clint Eastwood.

The Beguiled Release Dates: June 23rd, 2017 (UK); June 30th, 2017 (US)…

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)

In Genius, the new movie directed by Michael Grandage, Colin Firth is Max Perkins, the book Editor who oversaw the work of some of America’s best known writers. Namely, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe and Ernest Hemingway…

Genius looks like the kind of movie that’ll be most interesting to writers and fans of the key actors involved. I’m just not sure that this particular cut of the trailer has me that eager to see the film. Only if the inauthenticity of Jude Law’s accent wasn’t so obvious, maybe…

Nicole Kidman, Vanessa Kirby, Dominic West, Laura Linney and Guy Pearce also star.

Genius Release Dates: July 29th, 2016 (US)…

SECRET IN THEIR EYES (2015): The Things I Liked…

Directed by Billy Ray; Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Alfred Molina are the stars of Secret In Their Eyes. A story about a group of FBI Investigators; a close-knit team for whom everything changes when they learn the identity of the victim of their new murder case.

Ray’s movie follows the events and decisions that end up leading to a surprising, yet understandable conclusion, the revelation of which is a key highlight.

Seeing evidence of the depth of the friendships between the main protagonists – before, during and after the central crime, that is the thing I enjoyed most about Secret In Their Eyes . One more great moment would have been when the audience learns of  the victim’s identity. But…! that little nugget was unfortunately given away for free in the film’s trailer. What is one to do…?

Secret In Their Eyes could have been a better movie . The cast performed well but I think they were let down by post production, namely what felt like an awkward overuse of flashback and the trailer edit.

SECRET IN THEIR EYES (2015): A Good Thriller Is On the Way, Friends. It’s On The Way

The new Billy Ray directed mystery/ thriller starring Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor finally has a trailer and it looks rather good, I must say.

Two of the three lead Actors have an Oscar statue at home and the third is Oscar nominated so you know it’s going to be emotional.

The trailer is intense and best enjoyed without knowing too much about the film beforehand. So…

Can’t wait to see Julia Roberts being badass.

Happy Secret In Their Eyes 🙂
