I love Emma Thompson and it looks like her new film that features Robert Carlyle as Director and star will only make me love her more.

Also starring Ray Winstone and Ashley Jensen, The Legend of Barney Thomson is a comedy about a man whose life changes suddenly from desperate mediocrity to something sinister and far more interesting.

I’m liking it already because it remind me of The Voices (2014).

Happy The Legend of Barney Thomson 🙂

Seth Rogen and James Franco are two filmmakers I really appreciate.

The Interview (2014) is their latest work – and the trailer…?

May their partnership thrive always.

Happy The Interview 🙂

SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN (2012): Great Example of Trailer Perfection

From the beautifully paced editing, perfect choice of music, to the narrative concept, dialogue and visuals / special effects; the Snow White And The Huntsman (2012) trailer provides just enough detail to make you aware that this is a wonderfully different retelling.

The decision to make Charlize Theron the key focus of the trailer is genius. This isn’t a film aimed at the traditional young Disney audience. Hence the absence of elements that quite frankly I’m glad are no where to be found. Musical numbers being just one of them.

This tantalisingly dark 1 minute 54 second trailer arrests the senses and refuses to let go until the very last second. What a wonderful marriage of audio visual delight delivered to perfection.

For many, Kristen Stuart is the big draw which is unsurprising due to the success of The Twilight Saga. For me though, without question it’s Charlize Theron.

The tone and delivery of Theron’s performance is such a thrill to behold, that to date I’ve watched the trailer a countless number of times.

The Snow White & The Huntsman trailer has a place in a compilation of my favourite film trailers of 2012. It also makes it on my list of favourite Charlize Theron  performances; Monster (2003) being one of them.

Happy Snow White And The Huntsman 🙂
