Dolittle, the Stephen Gaghan directed fantasy / comedy about a physician (Robert Downey Jr.) who discovers he can to talk to animals has a brand new trailer.

Additional key cast includes Kumail Nanjiani, Tom Holland, Antonio Banderas…

Perhaps it’s the music. Maybe it’s Downey Jr. Wait! it’s got to be the animals, right?

What am I saying? Clearly it’s all three things that made me strangely emotional as I watched this trailer. Looking forward to being moved and seeing how different things might be if we really could talk with animals.

Also, I’m definitely really looking forward to Nanjiani as the ostrich.

Emma Thompson, Marion Cotillard, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Sheen, Jessie Buckley, Selena Gomez, Rami Malek, Octavia Spencer, and John Cena also star.

Dolittle Release Dates: January 17th, 2020 (US); February 7th, 2020 (UK)…

Trailer 1

The truth is, I completely ignored the Andrew Garfield Spider-Man movies. It just seemed far too soon after the Toby Magguire era. The question now is whether I’m I ready for the Holland phase. Robert Downey Jr.’s role may just convince me. We’ll see.

Donald Glover and Michael Keaton also star.

Spider-Man Homecoming Release Dates: July 7th, 2017 (US & UK)…

CAPTAIN AMERICA – CIVIL WAR (2016): New Trailer From Chris Evans & Scarlett Johansson

A second trailer for directing brothers Joe and Anthony Russo has landed for the 2016 instalment of Marvel’s Captain America

Trailer 1

Trailer 2

I like the first trailer more than the second, thanks to the music and the circumstances of the the characters involved. I’ll watch Captain America Civil War for this reason, as well as another chance to see Chris Evans’ portrayal the rather admirable Steve Rogers.

This instalment of the franchise doesn’t seem to be about saving the world but more about Captain America’s relationship with his childhood friend, Bucky Barnes/ The Winter Soldier and how that effects others including Robert Downey Junior’s Iron Man.

Beyond the above, my personal level of excitement when it comes to superhero movies has definitely dwindled over time. That’s what happens in most instances when you’re fed the same kind of thing repeatedly and with minimal respite. At this time I find myself actually looking forward to the time when this particular series of the Captain America Story is wrapped up. I had to say it.

Release Date (s): April 29th, 2016 (UK), May 6th, 2016 (US)…

AVENGERS – AGE OF ULTRON (2015): It’s Really For The Comic Book Fans…

I’m not a comic book reader myself, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed The Avengers, back in 2012.

The main reason I was excited after seeing the trailer – for the sequel is James Spader’s Ultron voice and dialogue. When I did finally watch the movie, I found myself selfishly wanting more screen time for Ultron. He just seemed a lot more interesting than all the other characters; perhaps in part because he’s new to me.

As for how I feel about the film overall, director Joss Whedon hasn’t delivered a bad movie. Even though it felt slow in parts and I found the dialogue about Thor’s hammer at the rather awkward party repetitive. In the most part, I’m just bored of the film’s heroes and tired of the same ‘the world needs saving’ dramatics.

Besides Ultron, I did enjoy Mark Ruffalo’s portrayal of The Incredible Hulk and the main fight scene between Hulk and Ultron. Beyond that however, saying that I found the film’s trailer more thrilling than the movie is unfortunately, more true than not.

The fact it, it may actually be time for me to leave Avengers to the serious fans who really love the comic books. I say this because it’s unlikely that superhero movie fatigue will ever be a real thing for them. Tuning in to a brand new Avengers movie, for me, will likely be about the hope of seeing a seriously badass scene; like the lift sequence in Captain America: A Winter Soldier (2014) and the majorly thrilling vehicular pursuit of Nick Fury in the same movie. That’s about it.

Watch it if you really must and to see the above mention highlights.

More great Ultron (James Spader) dialogue.

Without further ado….

If you thought the first trailer for Marvel’s Avengers, Age of Ultron was good, there is more.

Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man… all the avengers are great. But as the movie title states. This is all about Ultron.

I’m going to tear you apart… from the inside

Really hear these words delivered by the wonderfully voiced James Spader (Ultron), and I think you’ll agree that evil has never sounded so good.

To think I believed ‘There are no strings on me from the first trailer was the best line…

2015 is going to be one of the best years for film. Aaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!!! That is a scream of joy. Holding it in? – not possible.

Happy Avengers, Age of Ultron trailer 🙂


CHEF (2014): Prepare To Feel Hungry, In More Ways Than One

Chef (2014)
Chef (2014)

Jon Favreau’s Chef is a comedy film with great music and mouthwatering food that makes you wish you had immediate access to all the bites featured.

More than a feast for your stomach and then some, it’s a beautifully told story about family – particularly the relationship between a busy father and his ten year-old son.

The film also speaks to the sensibilities of those stuck in a career path that no longer supports their need for creative freedom and / or desire to serve their passions in a way that makes them happy.

There are one or two more themes that emerge from the narrative thread. I’ll let you discover those beautiful gems for yourself. Maybe they’ll speak to you more than the ones that stood out for me. Either way you’re likely to be hooked as soon as the film starts.

Happy Chef 🙂
