Protectors of Earth from the scum of the universe, the Men In Black are back with new F. Gary Gray directed sci-fi / action / comedy, Men In Black International.
Starring Tessa Thompson, Chris Hemsworth, Liam Neeson and Rebecca Ferguson, the focus this time is to deal with a new big threat, a mole in the Men in Black organisation.
The on screen chemistry between Thompson and Hemsworth is just great. I cant wait to see this new ‘international’ angle. It helps that it’s set in my beloved London town but really, this trailer is pretty well done.
I’ve been a fan of Rebecca Ferguson as an action star since Mission – Impossible Rogue Nation (2015), and now based on this trailer Tessa Thomson is definitely another new favourite.
Fingers crossed that Hemsworth’s seemingly British accent turns out great.
Emma Thompson, Rafe Spall, Kumail Nanjiani and Davina Sitaram also star.
The action sequences in Fallout are impressive, well-choreographed physical feats. You know, because it’s a Tom Cruise movie. Yet there was one moment at the beginning in the scene with the plutonium that felt too obvious as an action movie plot device – due to the way it was executed. It was unfortunately a moment that made me feel that little bit less enthused about the rest of the film.
As the story progressed, I was adequately engaged but whilst also simultaneously concluding that I probably need to give this franchise a break. That way when I return in some years, it will all feel kind of fresh and new again.
Even though I definitely had more fun with Rogue Nation, Fallout is still a good movie. It’s just unfortunate that for me personally, more than any specific action sequence or scene, the most memorable thing about director Christopher McQuarrie’s film is that it helped me realise what a truly great face Rebecca Ferguson actually has. A totally random observation, I know. Yet I’m quite sure, thoroughly accurate.
Watch Mission Impossible – Fallout because it’s good. Who knows, it may even be your favourite.
Tom Cruise, Rebecca Ferguson and Simon Pegg are back for M:I 6; a.ka. Mission – Impossible – Fallout.
Directed by Christopher McQuarrie and featuring new cast member Henry Cavill, Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his Impossible Mission Force (IMF) team are called upon to race against time after a mission gone wrong…
This is yet another fun-filled Mission: Impossible trailer. I’m ready for all the action.
The snowman is the new crime / horror/ drama based on the bestselling book by Jo Nesbø and stars Michael Fassbender as detective Harry Hole. Hole investigates the disappearance of a woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around an ominous-looking snowman. Directed by Tomas Alfredson; Rebecca Ferguson, Chloë Sevigny and Val Kilmer also star…
I’m big fan of Fassbender and Ferguson. This looks so good to me I can hardly wait.
Additional supporting cast includes J.K. Simmons ,Jamie Clayton, Charlotte Gainsbourg, James D’Arcy, Toby Jones, and Sofia Helin.
The Greatest Showman tells the story of P.T Barnum, a visionary who rose from nothing to create the mesmerising spectacle known as the circus. Directed by Michael Gracey; Zac Efron, Hugh Jackman, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendeya and Michelle Williams star…
I’m not the biggest fan of musicals but I like the cast too much to ignore this. There’s also the romance of it all, of course.
Paul Sparks, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Natasha Liu Bordizzo and Diahann Carroll also star.
Florence Foster Jenkins, the story of aNew York heiress who dreamed of becoming an opera singer, despite having a terrible singing voice is a movie I found to be just ok.
Starring Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg, ‘acting queen’ Meryl Streep and directed by Stephen Frears, I enjoyed the little moments of humour and I appreciated the film as a sweet story of one man’s complicated love for his wife and friend, particularly the lengths he and a number of her friends went to to ‘take care of her’.
It goes without saying that Streep performed well as Jenkins. Helberg and Grant were good too. Ordinarily, I personally can’t imagine myself gladly helping to delude a talentless person I care about into thinking that they were actually talented. Watching Florence Foster Jenkins has ensured that I’d take a little more time to consider it. Even though it all reeks heavily of the most cringe worthy moments in talent shows such as X-Factor and American Idol.
