Here’s the second eye melting trailer for the first person movie Hardcore Henry, starring Sharlto Copley, Danila Kozlovsky and Tim Roth.
The film is directed by first time Russian director Ilya Naishuller and the plot rattles along like so:
Hardcore Henry is a first-person perspective action film, in which the audience sees everything through the eyes of Henry, who’s resurrected from the brink of death as a cybernetic super soldier that remembers nothing about his past. He is trying to save his wife Estelle, who has been kidnapped by Akan, a powerful warlord with a plan for bio-engineering soldiers. In the unfamiliar city of Moscow, Henry tries to avoid being killed while discovering the truth behind his identity.
Hardcore Henry is scheduled for general release on April 8th.
So this is really fucking awkward.
In a month when high profile black actors and actresses rightly boycott the Oscars in protest over Hollywood’s lack of diversity, a white European actor has now been cast to play the role of one of the most famous Black American singers in history.
Apparently Joseph Fiennes has been cast as Michael Jackson in a British film about an alleged road trip he took with Marlon Brando, and Elizabeth Taylor directly after 9/11. The story goes the trio wanted to get out of New York so they hired a car and drove to Ohio.
Really? What’s next? Stephen Fry cast as Little Richard? Hugh Laurie to play Nat King Cole? The only way this production can redeem itself in the diversity stakes will be if Caitlyn Jenner plays Elizabeth Taylor and Morgan Freeman is cast as Brando.
Here’s the teaser trailer for the forthcoming movie A Monster Calls starring Liam Neeson, Sigourney Weaver and Felicity Jones and is based on the best selling children’s fantasy book of the same name written by Patrick Ness.
The plot of A Monster Calls rattles along like so: A young boy (Lewis MacDougall) escapes into a fantasy world of monsters and fairy tales as a way to cope with his mother’s (Felicity Jones) illness and bullies at school.
Fans of the original book will be encouraged to learn that the movie was directed by Spanish film maker Juan Antonio Bayona whose previous credits include The Orphanage and The Impossible.
A Monster Calls is set for release on October 14th.
Here’s the trailer for the housing market crash movie The Big Short, directed by Adam Mckay, (Step Brothers, Anchorman) and stars a raft of talent including Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt.
The film is based upon the true story and best selling book, of the same name, by author Michael Lewis and tells the story of four outsiders who saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy. Their next move was then to bet against the banks after which the dark underbelly of the financial industry was fully exposed.
The Big Short is due for release this Christmas.
WARNING: The trailer above contains NSFW material.
Here’s our first official look at the much-anticipated first-person action movie Hardcore from director Ilya Naishuller, who you may remember was the man responsible behind the outrageous first-person short film Bad Motherfucker, which became a viral sensation.
Now Naishuller is back with a full length movie which is being funded by Indiegogo. The plot for Hardcore rattles along like so:
You remember nothing. Mainly because you’ve just been brought back from the dead by your wife (Haley Bennett). She tells you that your name is Henry and congratulations, you’re now a cyborg. Five minutes later, your wife has been kidnapped and you should probably go get her back. Who’s got her? His name’s Akan (Danila Kozlovsky), he’s just a psychotic megalomaniac with telekinetic powers, and a never-ending army of mercenaries. You’re also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, Russia and everyone wants you dead. Everyone, except for a mysterious British fellow called Jimmy (Sharlto Copley). He might be on your side. Good luck Henry. You’re very much likely to need it.
No word yet on when we can expect to see Hardcore in British cinemas.
Ever since it was first announced I have been feverishly anticipating Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s The Revenant, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy and judging by the fascinating trailer above, which features some jaw dropping cinematography, my high expectations for this film may have been met.
The plot for The Revenant rattles along like so:
Deep in the uncharted American wilderness, hunter Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is severely injured and left for dead by a traitorous member of his team, John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). With sheer will as his only weapon, Glass must navigate a hostile environment, a brutal winter, and warring Native American tribes in relentless quest to survive and exact vengeance on Fitzgerald.
Since this trailer was released last week reports have leaked online that the film is $40m over budget and although it’s release date is December 25th, Iñárritu is yet to film the end of the movie.
Above is the first official trailer for the movie Goosebumps directed by Rob Letterman, (Shark Tale, Monsters v Aliens) and stars Jack Black and is based on the best-selling series of kids books of the same name.
The plot for Goosebumps rattles along like so:
Upset about moving from a big city to a small town, teenager Zach finds a silver lining when he meets the beautiful girl, Hannah living right next door. But every silver lining has a cloud, and Zach’s comes when he learns that Hannah has a mysterious dad who is revealed to be R. L. Stine, the author of the bestselling Goosebumps series. It turns out that there is a reason why Stine is so strange… he is a prisoner of his own imagination – the monsters that his books made famous are real, and Stine protects his readers by keeping them locked up in their books. When Zach unintentionally unleashes the monsters from their manuscripts and they begin to terrorize the town, it’s suddenly up to Stine, Zach, and Hannah to get all of them back in the books where they belong.
It looks like a delicious mix of Joe Dante’s Gremlins, The Monster Squad and Jumanji. Goosebumps is scheduled for release on October 16th.
