LOVE. WEDDING. REPEAT. (2020): New Trailer Starring Sam Claflin, Olivia Munn, Freida Pinto…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Love. Wedding. Repeat. (2020).

Directed and co-written by  Dean Craig; Sam Claflin, Olivia Munn, and Freida Pinto’s latest comedy, Love Wedding Repeat tells the story of Jack; a young man trying to make sure his sister’s wedding goes smoothly.

Only, this task includes having to manage a small list of unexpected outcomes; namely the presence of an angry ex girlfriend and ‘the one that got away,’ a misplaced sedative in alternate versions of the same day.

I’m definitely ready for all the humour and wedding season high jinks. Also glad to see Munn in a new movie.

Eleanor Tomlinson, Joel Fry, Aisling Bea, Jack Farthing, Tim Key, Allan Mustafa, Alexander Forsyth and Stefano Patti also star.

Love Wedding Repeat Release Dates: April 10th, 2020 (US & UK)…

THE PREDATOR (2018): New Trailer From Jacob Tremblay, Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown…

In new action / adventure / horror The Predator, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race, after a young boy accidentally triggers the return of universe’s most lethal hunters.

Directed by Shane Black; Jacob Tremblay, Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown star…

This is a very good teaser trailer but not for a second would I ever think that an 11 year-old actor would be the one to put me at ease in terms of the expected quality level of a new movie. But then, not every 11 year-old is a very talented Canadian called Jacob Tremblay.

I’m very much looking forward to this, in part because of the beautiful bass in Boyd Holbrook’s voice.

Yvonne Strahovski, Thomas Jane, Keegan-Michael Key and Lochlyn Munro also star.

The Predator Release Dates: September 14th, 2018 (US & UK)…

OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY (2016): New Trailer From Jennifer Aniston, Olivia Munn, Jason Bateman…

Office Christmas Party is the latest comedy from Jennifer Aniston, T.J. Miller, Olivia Munn and Jason Bateman.

Directed by Josh Gordon and Will Speck, the story involves a bunch of grownup office workers partying hard and behaving quite badly.

Ill advised as it may be, Jennifer Aniston and my love for her work on Horrible Bosses (2011) is the key reason I’ll be tuning in. Not that I  want a carbon copy , of course, but I’d much rather this movie be like Horrible Bosses than  The Night Before (2015). The former was brilliant but the latter, not so much.

May this also be nothing like Sisters (2015), a movie similar to The Night Before in the way that it features grownups unconvincingly doing things and behaving in ways that would make sense for teenagers only.

Office Christmas Party Release Dates: December 9th, 2016 (US & UK)…

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE (2016): New Trailer Starring Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence…

Friday has arrived with a trailer starring Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence that I wasn’t aware was missing from my week.

Directed by Bryan Singer, X-Men: Apocalypse is the latest instalment of the X-Men franchise and it looks good…

Trailer 1

Trailer 2

I like both trailers, the specific footage  and dialogue is great especially for trailer one. What I’m less keen on is the continued use of the music first heard at 1:10. I feel as though once was quite enough.

Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence  all return for this instalment, along with some new mutants.

Release date(s): May 19th, 2016 (UK), May 27th, 2016 (US)…

MAGIC MIKE (2012): First For The Spectacle, Then The Story

A film about male strippers with Channing Tatum in the leading role isn’t something that’s particularly easy to ignore; even when you suspect that it may not be amazing.

The first time I watched the Steven Soderbergh directed story about a male stripper with a plan, I have to admit, I was probably too distracted by the dance moves and baby oil.

It was during the second viewing a few years later that I found myself appreciating Soderbergh’s vision a little more. Not to say that the film is now in my list of favourites because it did feel a tad long. However, this time round the lead character’s story and internal struggle is the thing I paid attention to and I’m glad I did.

Matthew McConaughey is very entertaining as Dallas; the seasoned male stripper in charge. Joe Manganiello, Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Adam Rodriguez, Cody Horn and Olivia Munn also star.

I can’t say that I’ve heard great things about the sequel, Magic Mike XXL (2015). But what you hear all depends on who’s asked and what motivated them to watch.

Happy Magic Mike 🙂


RIDE ALONG 2 (2016): Kevin Hart & Ice Cube Return In New Trailer

The trailer for the sequel to Ride Along (2014) is here. Watch it for at least two laugh out loud moments…

I enjoy Hart most in his standup comedy  and I’ll be watching this because of the two great comedy moments in this trailer. I’m also hoping like crazy, that there’s more good stuff where that came from.

Directed by Tim Story; Olivia Munn, Kevin Jeong and Benjamin Bratt also star.

Release Date (s): January 15th, 2016 (2016) January 22nd, 2016 (UK)…

Happy Ride Along 2 🙂


ZOOLANDER 2 (2016): A Teaser Trailer For Ben Stiller’s Return As Derek Zoolander

Written by Justin Theroux and directed by Ben Stiller, the teaser trailer for Zoolander 2 has arrived and a tease it absolutely is!

The sequel also stars Owen Wilson, Olivia Munn, Penelope Cruz, Kristen Wiig, billy Zane, Fred Armisen, and Christine Taylor.

I can’t wait to see Will Ferrell as Mugatu. His performance in the original Zoolander (2001) film is one of my favourite Ferrell portrayals. Time to re-watch it, also to remind myself of Derek Zoolander’s impressive patented poses; Blue Steel, Ferrari, La Tigre and of course, Magnum.

Happy Zoolander 2 🙂


MORTDECAI (2015): The Thing I Loved

I remember being very excited after seeing the Mordecai teaser trailer in late 2014, for reasons including very promising dialogue and Johnny Depp.

What I didn’t anticipate is that upon seeing the David Koepp directed movie, my favourite thing about it would be the aerial shot special effects for the film’s various locations.

Why this particular response? It’s the overcooked accents that spoilt the experience really. Not to say that everything else about the movie is great, mind you. It may simply be the case that Charlie Mordecai’s particular brand of eccentricity is really just  best enjoyed in small doses. I.e. the movie’s fun trailer.

Am I missing something? Did anyone absolutely love it?

Happy Film Loving, though, for me, I guess not in this case :-(…  :-)
