Shia LaBeouf, Lucas Hedges, Noah Jupe and Maika Monroe are the stars of new drama Honey Boy.
Set over the course of a decade, written by Shia LaBeouf and directed by Alma Har’el, Honey Boy is the story of a young actor’s efforts to mend his relationship with his hard-drinking, law-breaking father…
This must have been quite the journey for LaBeouf considering it appears to be based on the story of his relationship with his own father. I’m ready for good performances from everyone. Especially young Mr. Jupe.
FKA Twigs, Natasha Lyonne, Noah Jupe, Laura San Giacomo, Clifton Collins Jr. and Martin Starr also star.
In new adventure story Peanut Butter Falcon, Zak (Zack Gottsagen) is a young man with Down syndrome who runs away from a nursing home to make his dream of becoming a wrestler come true.
Directed by Tyler Nilson, Michael Schwartz and also starring Dakota Johnson and Bruce Dern, Zak must convince small time outlaw Tyler (Shia LaBeouf) to help him…
‘Where’s this going?’ That was my initial thought at the start of this trailer. but by the end I was won over, completely. Now I’m in the mood for adventure, humour and I’m looking forward to seeing LaBeouf in a role that doesn’t seem as dark as his other relatively recent ones.
John Hawkes, Deja Dee, Thomas Haden Church, Jon Bernthal, Yelawolf, Jake Roberts and Mick Foley also star.
Starring Shia laBeouf, Sasha Lane, and written / directed by Andrea Arnold, American Honey tells the story of teenage misfits in a travelling magazine sales crew…
I clicked on the trailer because I saw Labeouf’s name but I kept on watching because of Sasha Lane. Even though the movie won the coveted Jury Prize at the 2016 Cannes Film, I realised that the trailer wasn’t doing much to convince me to see it. Reason being, there doesn’t seem to be much that’s particularly new about the story. Selena Gomez and James Franco’s Spring Breakers (2013) came to mind as something potentially similar.
Maybe we’ll all be pleasantly surprised. I’d love for my initial impression to be wrong. Maybe I’ll find out soon.
