Is Loki the Marvel Studios/Avengers spin-off series I’m most excited about? Yes! And full disclosure, as a non-reader of comic books, I have no idea about what the synopsis could be, since Marvel hasn’t revealed much and I recall nothing of the last one or two Thor movies. Because I haven’t seen them… yet.

Still, who needs a synopsis anyway, when Tom Hiddleston is reprising his role as the favourite villain of many movie fans?

The excellent cast includes Sophia Di Martino, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Owen Wilson.

How much fun is this trailer? So much fun that it has me ready to place Loki at the currently short list of recent Avengers spin-off shows. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is in second place and unfortunately, last has to be WandaVision, for reasons outlined in the linked post

Richard E. Grant, Lucius Baston, Chris Brewster, Cailey Fleming, Isabelle Fretheim, Michael Rose, Aaron Beelner and Reese Giles also star.

Loki Release Dates: June 11th, 2021 (US), Disney+

Tom Hiddleston, Sophia Di Martino, Richard E. Grant and Owen Wilson are the stars of new Marvel Entertainment/Disney+ series Loki.

Hello, beautiful trailer!

I have no idea why they’ve chosen to call this a ‘clip;’ especially considering the editing. Anyway, what a magnetic villainous presence Hiddleston conveys. I’m excited to see his Loki being as simultaneously cool and bad, as only the very best villains can be.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Lucius Baston, Chris Brewster, Cailey Fleming, Isabelle Fretheim, Michael Rose, Aaron Beelner and Reese Giles also star.

EARTH AT NIGHT IN COLOR (2020): New Trailer For Documentary About What Animals Do At Night…

Earth at Night in Color is a new Tom Hiddleston narrated Apple TV+ documentary series. One that’s offering a close look at what animals do at night. All possible thanks to the use of cutting-edge camera technology.

I’m quite impressed with the capabilities of high-tech cameras. However, I’m of course, more interested in learning precisely what the animals get up to once the sun has set.

Our narrator Mr. Hiddleston is known to enjoy the odd impression here and there; as confirmed during an appearance on The Graham Norton Show. As such when he speaks in this trailer, I keep imagining him attempting an impression of iconic broadcaster and natural historian, Sir David Attenborough. Anyone else imagining the same?

Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett, Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba are back for the next Thor movie instalment. Directed by Taika Waititi, in Thor – Ragnarok,  Thor, the hammer wielding god of thunder, lightning, storms, etcetera, must face the Incredible Hulk in a gladiator match and save his people from the ruthless Hela (Blanchett)…

I haven’t watched any Thor Movie’s since Hemsworth’s first because Thor generally isn’t my favourite Marvel superhero. However, this undeniably cool new  trailer may just have pulled me right back in. There’s also another reason… my favourite acting queen! Cate Blanchett, of course.

Thor  – Ragnarok Release Dates: October 27th, 2017 (UK) November 3rd, 2017 (US)…

Jamie Alexander and Tessa Thompson also star.

EARLY MAN (2017): New Trailer From Tom Hiddleston, Eddie Redmayne, Maisie Williams…

Starring Tom Hiddleston, Eddie Redmayne and Maisie Williams, Early Man tells the story of how one plucky caveman unites his tribe against a mighty enemy. Directed by Nick Park, this animation / comedy / adventure is set during the time of the dinosaurs and woolly mammoths…

I loved Chicken Run (2000) and so would just adore it if this were as good if not better. Since the same people are behind both films, there’s definitely a good chance.

Early Man Release Dates: January 26th, 2018 (UK)…

The full trailer for the Jordan Vogt-Roberts directed origin story of King Kong is here. Starring Brie Larson Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John C Reilly and Thomas Mann, the action / fantasy / adventure that is Kong – Skull Island looks good…

I like this trailer. Along with cinematography and special effects first seen in the Kong – Skull Island Comic-Con trailer, I’m now also looking forward to the humour, courtesy of John C. Reilly’s character.

Corey Hawkins, Toby Kebbell and Jason Mitchell also star.

Kong – Skull Island Release Dates: March 10th, 2017 (US & UK); March 9th, 2017 (GER)…

KONG – SKULL ISLAND (2017): New Trailer From Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman…

Kong – Skull Island is the latest from Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and John Goodman. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, it’s an  action adventure story focused on the origins of King Kong…

Was I ready and in need of another King Kong movie. No. But that doesn’t mean it won’t be just what I need by the time it’s released. Also, I’m definitely not at peace with the idea that humans are going to Skull Island, Kong’s home to capture and hurt him. Though, at least in this instance one can say, it’s just a movie.

The cinematography and dynamic between Hiddleston / Larson, plus Jackson / Goodman are very interesting. The movie also stars Corey Hawkins, John C. Reilly, Jason Mitchell and Toby Kebbell.

Kong – Skull Island Release Dates: March 10th, 2017 (US & UK); March 9th, 2017 (GER)…

CRIMSON PEAK (2015): Style, Story & Cinematography…

The first thing I noticed and immediately loved about Crimson Peak is the cinematography. Particularly the rich colours, beautiful period fashion and the use of light and shadow.

Directed and co-written by Guillermo del Toro, Crimson Peak is a visual feast of a gothic romance. One that features a gifted author, Edith (Mia Wasikowska) who is a young lady faced with the choice between two potential suiters.

One of Edith’s suiters is her childhood friend Alan, (Charlie Hunnam) and the other is a dark, mysterious and mesmerising newcomer called  Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston).

I’d like to think that faced with Edith’s predicament I might be wise enough to make the ‘healthiest’ choice. But considering how much I find myself mesmerised by Hiddleston’s character’s voice, words and presence, I’m thinking absolutely not.

A feast for the eyeballs is  one way to describe Guillermo del Toro’s movie. I also like the  beautiful romance which just happens to be a great reminder for how truly blinding love can be.

It crossed my mind that perhaps some of the ghostly special effects could have done with a little extra financial investment. But overall, I like Crimson Peak.

Lastly,  what a wonderfully meaty role Jessica Chastain was blessed to play.

Watch it for the story, romance, and visual beauty. As you do that, I’ll I continue dreaming about having full access to the beautiful contents of Edith’s wardrobe.

Happy Film Loving 🙂
