Denis Villenueve has earned a lot of praise here on this site, and rightfully so, with films like Prisoners, Enemy and the sadly still unseen Sicario, which I am certain will be/is very good. Arrival though, is a different sort or beast as it appears the French Canadian director is venturing into Alien/Interstellar blockbuster territory and I wonder whether or not it is the best thing for him (from this fans perspective). The film stars Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker, in addition to special effects laden Aliens who have visited Earth for reasons unknown. The film drops stateside on 12/16. Have a look at the trailer below and we will share more pertinent information as it becomes available. Fingers crossed on this one.
In what is hopefully but almost assuredly not going to be the last X-Men movie, we get the team all back together again for another go around in X-Men: Apocalypse. Stealing the movie’s name from an old 2pac album seems inauspicious in and of itself, but to trot out it boy (though a very quality actor) Oscar Isaac in a villian role here shows the level of desperation and staleness that has come to one of Marvel’s hallmark franchises. J-Law, Fassbender, McAvoy, etc. can’t possibly hold up the film on their own – No, we need another star to help sell tickets to a destruction movie that will probably fail to inspire yet still rake in box office dollars. Rant over. See the trailer below.
Matt Damon returns in the titular role of Jason Bourne in the new trailer for the upcoming film of the same name. Paul Greengrass is back at the helm and other familiar faces include Julia Stiles’ Nikki. Alicia Vikander, fresh off of her Oscar win and Tommy Lee Jones joins the fray for what should be a grand return to the franchise that made Damon an ultra star. Check out the first official trailer below and get hyped for the film and forget that the Jeremy Renner 4th film ever happened, ya dig?
Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game) makes his introduction in the first trailer for the November 16 release of Marvel’s Doctor Strange. The full trailer features Strange learning the ways of his power from a chrome-domed Tilda Swinton. There is a brief shot of Rachel McAdams as a nurse and Chiwetel Ejiofor as well it appears. Mads Mikkelsen (Pusher trilogy) is not pictured. Check out the teaser of the Doctor Strange trailer below and mark your calendars accordingly.
Official Premiere of ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Movie Trailer
The first Star Wars film franchise spin-off is set to debut this December. That’s coming directly on the heels of last year’s The Force Awakens which is still smashing box office records and debuted on Blu-ray last week. This movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story stars Felicity Jones and takes place after Star Wars prequel Revenge of the Sith but before A New Hope, so between films 3 and 4. This could cause some timeline trouble for the uninitiated but I’m sure will be plenty of fun for fans to try to decipher. The trailer reveals Jones’ character to be a rebel with a shady past and introduces several new characters. Have a look at the trailer and commence with your plans for this December. Enjoy.
Ryan Gosling & Russell Crowe in ‘The Nice Guys’ Movie Trailer
Shane Black, director of Iron Man 3 and writer of classic buddy films like the Lethal Weapon series, handles both duties in this 70’s Los Angeles who done it film, The Nice Guys. The film is due May 20th to domestic theaters. The trailer provides enough visual fun and quippy hi jinx to be a certain add to your 2016 film calendars, if it wasn’t already. Russell is the muscle and Ryan is the P.I. (of sorts) in this twisted tale that looks a bit like it has some Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas mixed into it. Check out the full trailer below. Looks like one to see. Enjoy.
