Movie Trailer – Pinocchio (2019)

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Matteo Garrone

Starring: Roberto Benigni, Federico Ielapi, Marine Vacth

Release: December 25th, 2019

This is neither a Disney live-action re-do or the upcoming Guillermo Del Toro dark take on the tale, but rather an Italian version of the classic story starring Roberto Benigni, and that sounds great to me.  It looks weird, inventive, fun, and I’m in.

Movie Trailer – Mulan (2020)

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Niki Caro

Starring: Yifei Liu

Release: March 27th, 2020

I’ve said it a hundred times; I want Disney to stop making these ridiculous re-dos, just stop already, make something original or simply shut up.  BUT, if they have to do it I would hope that the new film would be more Cinderella and less Aladdin; don’t copy the originals, let the new casts shine and stop playing down to us like we’re dumb.  Fortunately, I think Mulan looks fantastic, exactly what I would wish for if Disney refuses to stop copying themselves, exactly what audiences should be asking for from this new wave of remakes.

Movie Trailer – Knives Out

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Rian Johnson

Starring: Everyone

Release: November 27th, 2019

I trust Rian Johnson a bit, I like this Agatha Christie style, and the cast seems legit: Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Toni Collette, Michael Shannon, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lakeith Stanfield, Don Johnson, Christopher Plummer, Jaeden Martell, Katherine Langford, Frank Oz for some reason.  I’m in.

Movie Trailer – Jumanji: The Next Level

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Jake Kasdan

Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan

Release: December 13th, 2019

Welcome to the Jungle was surprisingly good, and its sequel looks to be just as fun.  I’m picking up what these guys are throwing down.

Movie Trailer – Charlie’s Angels (2019)

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Elizabeth Banks

Starring: Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, Ella Balinska

Release: November 15th, 2019

This is going to be the worst movie ever made.

Movie Trailer – Trolls World Tour

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Walt Dohrn, David P. Smith

Starring: Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake

Release: April 17th, 2020

I liked Trolls enough, but I’m not sure I want to watch any more.  It’s a catchy movie, like a 90-minute pop song, and that’s fun in a way, but why would I want to watch a Version 2.0?  My kids will though, so I’ll check it out and probably minimally enjoy, I’m just not expecting big things.

Movie Trailer – Midway (2019)

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Roland Emmerich

Starring: Ed Skrein, Patrick Wilson, Nick Jonas

Release: November 8th, 2019

Emmerich knows giant, explosive destruction, he knows how to capture our attention, but that by no means that his movies are any good.  This might be his worst yet, based solely on the the cast, which is abysmal.  Skrein, Wilson, Jonas, Luke Evans, Woody Harrelson, Mandy Moore, Dennis Quaid, Aaron Eckhart; god help me.  Pearl Harbor tried a similar stunt and crashed & burned; I think Midway might suffer the same fate.

Movie Trailer – Doctor Sleep

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Mike Flanagan

Starring: Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, Bruce Greenwood

Release: November 8th, 2019

The Shining novel is phenomenal, while The Shining movie is only alright.  King wrote something perfect that Kubrick decided to overlook for the sake of creepy visuals, and that’s not what I would have done, not what any great director should have done with that amazing source material.  I’m about to read Doctor Sleep before I see this new film version, and I’m interested to see which I like better, but I’d put my money of Stephen over a director who’s no Stanley.

Movie Trailer – Ad Astra

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: James Gray

Starring: Brad Pitt, Liv Tyler, Tommy Lee Jones

Release: September 20th, 2019

I think this film with eventually fall right between First Man and Interstellar, two films that it seems to mirror quite heavily.  I think it will be more entertaining than the former but not quite as (literally) awesome as the latter.  But I’d watch Brad Pitt in space all day every day, and I like this director, so I expect to enjoy this movie.  Here’s hoping that it’ll be so much better than those conservative estimates.

Movie Trailer – Ford v Ferrari

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: James Mangold

Starring: Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Tracy Letts

Release: November 15th, 2019

This reminds me of The Fighter, and I think it has the chance to be as good.  I like the director, as well as the cast, obviously, including Letts and Jon Bernthal and Noah Jupe.  I’m expecting something really special out of the film, really really special.
