Here’s the official trailer for Spy the new comedy starring Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law and Jason Statham. It’s a typical ‘fish out of water‘ espionage comedy plot with McCarthy in lead comedic role.
Spy, which is just the most imaginative title, rattles along like so:
Susan Cooper is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. But when her partner falls off the grid and another top agent is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.
Spy is directed by Paul Feig the man who is taking over the Ghostbusters remake and judging from this trailer it’s probably a remake I shall leave well alone.
Oh look a film at sea, with submarines and divers and…holy shit…Nazi Gold?
Here’s the trailer for Black Sea a film about a jobless Scottish Submarine captain who brings together a misfit crew to go looking for sunken Nazi gold at the bottom of the Black Sea. Hilarity will inevitably ensue.
It stars Jude Law who has somehow managed to present probably the greatest worst Scottish accent since Christopher Lambert in Highlander.
Black Sea is directed by Kevin Macdonald (One Day in September, The Last King of Scotland), and goes on general release on January 2015.
It has action, great humour, the attention to detail for a period piece of this scale is fantastic, the chemistry between Downey Jnr and Law is more solid than the first and the cinematography is outstanding.
Sure it has some faults, a major villian just seems to vanish with no conclusion to his story and slow motion sequences are used a little too much, but for the most this is Indiana Jones in a top hat and tails or James Bond in a flat cap and tweed suit. In a year crowded with poor sequels and downright bad movies Sherlock Holmes 2: Game Of Shadows thankfully delivers the goods.
If like us you thoroughly enjoyed Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes back in 2009, then you’ll be delighted with the above trailer for the sequel Game Of Shadows.
Looks like a far darker film with the introduction of the infamous Professor Moriarty, played by Jarred Harris, (Mad Men, Fringe), and Sherlock’s older brother Mycroft, played by Stephen Fry. The chemistry between Law and Downey, which for us at least is what made the original so enjoyable, is maintained as are the excellent slow motion actions set pieces and fight scenes.
