The Catcher Was A Spy is the story of a man in the midst of a double life; working both as a major league baseball player and a spy…
Directed by Ben Lewin; Paul Rudd, Connie Nielsen, Mark Strong and Sienna Miller star…
I don’t know about you, but I haven’t yet encountered a serious, non-comedic Paul Rudd movie that has me excited enough to see it; so deep is my appreciation of his comedic work. Unlike Steve Carell and a few other actors known first for comedy, I’m just finding it hard to make the shift from a funny Rudd to a serious Rudd. I think it’s going to take a film I simply can’t ignore for me to transition. Will The Catcher Was A Spy be that movie? I’m not quite sure yet but I wish.
Guy Pearce, Connie Nielsen, Jeff Daniels, Hiroyuki Sanada and Shea Whigham also star
Starring Kate Mara, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Paul Giamatti and Boyd Holbrook, Morgan is the story of an artificial being whose continued existence is to be decided by a corporate risk-management consultant…
I’m a fan of Alex Galand’sEx Machina (2015)and as I watched the above trailer, it occurred to me that this moviemay just be the closest thatEx Machina fans will ever get to a sequel. Not ideal but I’ll take it.
Morgan Release Dates: September 2nd, 2016 (US & UK); September 21st, 2016 (FR); November 24th, 2016 (GER)…
Directed by Luke Scott; Michael Yare, Anya Taylor Joy and Boyd Holbrook also star.
Starring Ethan Hawke, Paul Giamatti and Johnny Simmons, The Phenom tells the story of the relationship between a major League rookie pitcher, his new sports psychologist and an overbearing father (Hawke)…
I really want this movie to be great and I think I’ll like it. But if for some reason it isn’t and I don’t, I’d like to take a moment to say… ‘Well done trailer maker!’
Directed by Brad Peyton; Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Ioan Gruffudd, and Paul Giamatti are the stars of San Andreas – that California earthquake movie you may have heard about over the summer.
You may also have heard that the visual effects are breathtaking and they are. However, the thing I enjoyed most is actually the unique father daughter relationship. San Andreas isn’t a bad movie, there’s just nothing that feels particularly new about it, therefore making it feel not quite as epic as I’d hoped.
Some random things came to mind as I watched:
On account of all the dust, running, falling and screaming, how much fun was being an extra on this movie, really?
I honestly don’t recall the last time I saw such excellent mother/ daughter casting.
You’d have to be blind not to notice Alexandra Daddario’s eyeballs. If you’ve seen the film, I know you noticed!
I better be careful because I don’t know anyone that would come and rescue me at a time when the traditional emergency services cannot. But then again… you never know. Just don’t rely on it, of course. But still, you never know…
If by this point you’re still curious, watch it for the impressive visual effects and all else that appeals.
The red band trailer for F. Gary Gray’s biography of rap group N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton (2015) has landed.
Focused on the emergence of the group (ranked number 83 by Rolling Stone, on their list of the ‘100 Greatest Artists of All Time.’), fans of N.W.A’s music will be very happy indeed if the highly anticipated trailer is anything to go by.
Thankfully, due to involvement from founding members, Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, original N.W.A music will be featured and performed.
As someone ever curious about routes to success / greatness, in any field and in the face of adversity, I’m ready for this film right now.
