Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson are the stars of Solo – A Star Wars Story, another instalment of the many more star wars movies to follow.

Directed by Ron Howard, the story is set years before the Rebellion when, in the midst of an adventure into a dark criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his future copilot Chewbacca and encounters Lando Calrissian…

I’m intrigued by Solo’s implied rebel ways but that’s about it really. I’m still no closer to watching my first Star Wars movie. One day it’s possible that someone, somewhere will convince me. It just hasn’t happened yet.

Thandie Newton, Paul Bettany and Warwick Davis also star. 

Solo – A Star Wars Story Release Dates: May 25th, 2018 (US & UK)…

THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN (2017): Good, Harrelson Was Fun…

Starring Woody Harrelson, Hailee Steinfeld, Blake Jenner and Kyra Sedgwick, director Kelly Fremon Craig’s movie, The Edge Of Seventeen features good performances from the entire cast.

Steinfeld whose great work in True Grit (2010) will probably always be my favourite of her roles did a good job of playing a high school student. One whose life becomes even more challenging than it already was now that her brother and best friend have started dating.

What’s useful to note is that this tale of a high school student finally growing up is more a drama than it is comedy. As such, definitely don’t expect to laugh too much. What you probably can expect is for a thought similar to the following to enter your mind: ’Parenting is hard, adolescence is hard, relationships, friendships and siblinghood are hard; especially when you get a massive wrench in the works that is your life and your main support is absent.’

I enjoyed Harrelson and Sedgwick’s performances the most. Harrelson for the humour and Sedgwick for her portrayal of a struggling mother of two teenage children.

By the end, even though my teenage years weren’t the worst, I was left feeling rather grateful that my those years are well and truly behind me. In truth, of course, every decade of life is challenging; except that with time, we hopefully should be getting better and wiser so we hurt people less.

LBJ (2017): New Trailer From Woody Harrelson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, C. Thomas Howell, Bill Pullman…

In LBJ, Woody Harrelson stars as the President of the United States of America. Directed by Rob Reiner, the drama / biography tells the true story of Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) – from his young days in West Texas to his time in the White House…

I want to see this so I can marvel at the seemingly great prosthetics on Harrelson’s face. I’m also curious about the story since it’s, in a way the other version of events that we didn’t get to see in Jackie (2016).

At this moment in time however, I may  need a break from movies set at The White House. You see, I’m half way through season three of House Of Cards and my goodness is it dark and intense!

LBJ Release Dates: November 3rd, 2017 (US)…

THE GLASS CASTLE (2017): New Trailer From Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, Naomi Watts…

The perfectly titled The Glass Castle stars Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson and Naomi Watts. Written and directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, the story centres around a young girl’s coming of age in a poor, dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads…

The subject matter, this trailer and the actors have me so interested in this movie. Stories about parent / offspring relationships especially once the children are grown up are always interesting to me. Also, what wonderful roles these are for all the actors involved.

Max Greenfield and Sarah Snook also star.

The Glass Castle release Dates: August 11th, 2017 (US)…

There’s a new War For The Planet of the Apes trailer and it looks really good. Starring Woody Harrelson, Andy Serkis and  Ruby Rose,  in this instalment Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans and massive losses are suffered all round…

Well done trailer maker! I actually want to forget about the other films in the franchise and just watch this. Only I know only too well just how unwise that is.

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI (2017): New Trailer Starring Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell…

The trailer for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri may start slow but it only gets better and better, so stick with it. Starring Woody Harrelson, Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell and Caleb Landry Jones, this one is a dark comedy from the writer / director of  the rather memorable In Bruges (2008) – Martin McDonagh. The story of  Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri centres around a mother who takes matters into her own hands with her local law enforcement representatives, after progress stalls in her daughter’s murder investigation…

Wasn’t that a good one? I forgot how much a fan of Frances McDormand’s work I am.

Lucas Hedges, John Hawkes, Peter Dinklage and Abbie Cornish also star.

WILSON (2017): New Trailer Starring Woody Harrelson, Laura Dern, Judy Greer…

Woody Harrelson, Judy Greer and Laura Dern are the stars of Wilson, a Craig Johnson directed comedy about a middle aged misanthrope who gets the surprise of his life after reuniting with is estranged wife…

Based on the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes, I want to see this because I rather enjoy Harrelson in comedy roles. His part in 2011’s Friends With Benefits is one of my favourites.

Cheryl Hines and Margo Martindale also star.

Wilson Release Dates: March 24th, 2017 (US)…

Starring Woody Harrelson, Andy Serkis and  Ruby Rose, In War For The Planet of the Apes – the third movie in the franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans. A conflict that results in unimaginable losses and a most epic battle…

Teaser trailer

Trailer 1

Since I haven’t yet watched the first two Planet Of The Apes movies, I’m sure that I’m missing something about why what happens in this teaser trailer is supposed to get fans audibly excited for more. The official trailer has since cleared that up.
