Finding Steve Mqueen is a new crime / thriller based on a true story set in 1972 Youngstown, Ohio.

Starring Travis Fimmel, William Fichtner, Forrest Whitaker and Rachael Taylor, director Mark Steven Johnson’s story is about a gang of thieves as they attempt to steal $30 million in illegal contributions and blackmail money from President Richard Nixon‘s secret fund…

Looks like this could be fun. It kind of brings to mind Leonardo DiCaprio’s Catch Me If You Can (2002).

Lily Rabe, Jake Weary, Rhys Coiro, John Finn, Molly McQueen and Gioia Libardoni also star.

Finding Steve McQueen Release Dates: March 15th, 2019 (US)…

Travis Fimmel, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi and  Charlie Plummer are the stars of Lean On Pete, an Andrew Haig directed adventure / drama about a teenager who befriends fading racehorse, Lean on Pete.

I’m interested in this movie mainly because I want to learn more about the impracticalities of having a pet horse sans stable/ barn. If something else about the movie ends up resonating with me, then great.

Amy Seimetz, Ayanna Berkshire, Steve Zahn and Thomas Mann also star.

Lean On Pete Release Dates: February 16th, 2018, (UK); March 30th, 2018 (US)…

WARCRAFT (2016): The Things I Liked…

I don’t really understand the idea that Warcraft is a movie only true fans of World Of Warcraft (the multiplayer online role-playing game that this movie is based on) can enjoy. I had a good time and I’m certainly not a ‘true fan.’ Especially since the only reason I know about World Of Warcraft is because of the characters of CBS’s comedy series, The Big Bang Theory.

Since fantasy movies generally aren’t my thing, it may not surprise you to learn that I found The Lord Of The Rings trilogy incredibly punishing – and I don’t just mean the length of the movies. Regardless of this, every so often one or two fantasy films gets through to me and I can’t quite explain why. Warcraft is one such movie. Perhaps it’s because something about the fantasy movies I respond most to in a positive way, remind me of tales I heard and/or read in my youth.

I like how the story of Warcraft comes together. The characters may not be the most complex but sometimes that’s OK, for me at least. The pace of the movie kept me engaged and the special effects were fun. Another highlight is the way the Orcs move, particularly Toby Kebbell’s Antonidas. 

Directed by Duncan Jones, the rest of the cast , namely Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Ben Foster and Travis Fimmel all played their roles well. I also think that Paula Patton’s Garona is arguably her best work since Precious (2009). She may have been in better films since, but my disappointment as I tried and failed to sit through Baggage Claim (2013) is so very deep that… Have you tried to watch Baggage Claim?

I say ignore everyone that claims Warcraft can only be enjoyed and understood by fans of the game, for a good time is what I and the same may be for you.

Of all the Warcraft trailers, this is my favourite…

May this non-traditional ‘superhero’ movie about saving the word be as refreshingly great as this footage plus dialogue suggests – and  please let this be the best Paula Patton performance ever.

Hello, perfect trailer music.

MAGGIE’S PLAN (2015): New Trailer From Ethan Hawke, Julian Moore & Greta Gerwig

Directed by Rebecca Miller, Maggie’s Plan stars Julianne Moore, Ethan Hawke & Greta Gerwig in story that centres around a young woman who is eager to start a family on her own. The only thing is, she ends up becoming a mistress and breaking up the marriage of her professor lover and his wife (Moore)…

As you can tell from the trailer, there’s quite a lot going on. I like that Maggie’s Plan has been categorised as a comedy. Although, I don’t recall laughing, let alone smiling more than once during the trailer. The most exciting thing about this movie, for me is brilliant actress, Julianne Moore. Even more so because she’s sporting what sounds like a convincing European accent.

Travis Fimmel, Bill Hader, and Maya Rudolph make up other key supporting cast.

Maggie’s Plan Release Dates: May 20th, 2016 (US); July 8th, 2016 (UK)…

I don’t usually write about 15 second teaser trailers but the one for Warcraft ooks rather good – and yes, it’s based on that very popular video game by Blizzard Entertainment…
