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.
Above is the first official trailer for the wholly uneccesary Point Break remake and although it looks actiony and sweaty enough it sadly seems to be lacking in something.
Directed by Ericson Cove, (Invincible), this time around Johnny Utah, played by Luke Bracey, (The November Man) takes on an extraordinary team of extreme sports athletes he suspects of masterminding a string of unprecedented, sophisticated corporate heists led by the enigmatic Bodhi, played Edgar Ramirez, (The Bourne Ultimatum).
Sounds like Ray Winstone, who plays Angelo Pappas, a role originally fleshed out by Gary Busey, has been attending the Dick Van Dyke School of movie accents. Terrible.
Point Break is scheduled for release on Christmas Day.
Here’s the first official trailer for the much anticipated music bio-pic Straight Outta Compton about the rise and fall of the iconic Los Angeles rap outfit N.W.A.
The film is directed by F. Gary Gray (Friday, Set It Off, The Italian Job), and is produced by founding members Ice Cube and Dr Dre. The plot for the movie rattles along like so:
In the mid-1980s, the streets of Compton, California, were some of the most dangerous in the country. When five young men translated their experiences growing up into brutally honest music that rebelled against abusive authority, they gave an explosive voice to a silenced generation. Following the meteoric rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton tells the astonishing story of how these youngsters revolutionized music and pop culture forever the moment they told the world the truth about life in the hood and ignited a cultural war.
Straight Outta Compton is scheduled for release on August 14th
Here’s the first official trailer for The Theory Of Everything and judging this footage alone I would say actor Eddie Redmayne is on course for an Oscar nod.
The film, directed by James Marsh, (Man On Wire), rattles along like so:
The extraordinary story of one of the world’s greatest living minds, the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who falls deeply in love with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde. Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking received an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of – time. Together, they defy impossible odds, breaking new ground in medicine and science, and achieving more than they could ever have dreamed.
The film is based on the memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, by Jane Hawking, and If you’re planning on seeing this movie make sure you sit next to an open window, as things could get a little smokey.
Imagine if you made a film today but based it in the 1970s version of the future?
Films from that era like Dark Star, Buck Rogers and Battlestar Galactica all had a specific look and feel of their vision of the future, naff robots, flared jumpsuits and crappy special FX. We look back at these films today with nostalgia but Space Station 76 directed by Jack Plotnik and starring Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler and Jerry O’Connell, bases it’s entire premise in the much cherised 1970s fututrism.
The plot of the black comedy deals with a group of people and robots living on a space station who end up facing inner turmoil when a new assistant captain arrives, sparking tension.
No word yet on an official release date.
I cannot contain my excitement for this movie any longer. Just look at this second trailer for Guardians Of The Galaxy and tell me this doesn’t look good.
A talking racoon with a gun scratching his balls, what’s not to like about that?
