Movie Trailer – A Quiet Place

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: John Krasinski

Starring: John Krasinski, Emily Blunt

Release: April 6th, 2018

What the what?! What’s out there that they’re hiding from?  I want to know, but I also don’t.  Good job guys, you got me, I’m in.  And how cute that Krasinski & Blunt play a couple when they are one in real life.  Well, it would be cute if they weren’t being terrorized by some unknown, sound-sensitive force.  The fact that Krasinski also wrote & directed this movie makes me want to see it all the more.  I can hardly wait.

Movie Trailer – Rampage

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Brad Peyton

Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Dean Morgan

Release: April 20th, 2018

Screw you, I want to see this.  I can be wishy-washy on disaster movies; sometimes I’m right there eating the cheese, and sometimes it’s basically the worst movie ever.  But I guess that’s the genre, you have to buy in, because of course it’s bad, it’s whether or not you enjoy the awful, nonsensical chaos.  Rampage I’m ready to love, and I’ll tell you why; because of the video game.  I didn’t play it much at the arcade (my local one was called Tilt), and it’s not my favorite game to play at the barcade now that I’m grown, but boy did I ever rent this cartridge and waste away the hours destroying shit.  My sister and I would get it, play it, leave it on all night because you couldn’t save your progress, and then beat it in the morning.  The NES would be so hot you couldn’t touch it, but it was worth it.  I loved this game, and I’m ready to love this movie.  Now, I know it’ll probably suck, like San Andreas, and it looks like they just used the same exact footage, simply overlaying some CGI animals and stealing scenes from Kong: Skull Island.  But the Rock is still the Rock, he’s kinda made for this style, and I’m ready for him to take on a childhood favorite, especially alongside Harris who I think very highly of, and Morgan who is a great villain (you want to watch The Salvation, not Desierto).  Begin the rampage, I’m ready.

Movie Trailer – The Pirates of Somalia

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Bryan Buckley

Starring: Evan Peters, Barkhad Abdi, Al Pacino

Release: December 8th, 2017

I’m not sure Evan Peters is ready for this role quite yet.  He’s great as Quicksilver, he’s tried popping up a few other places, but he hasn’t landed that great role yet/hasn’t delivered that key performance.  I can see how this is supposed to be his moment, but either he’s not ready or this film just was never going to be the vehicle, because it doesn’t look promising.

Movie Trailer – The Mercy

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: James Marsh

Starring: Colin Firth, Rachel Weisz, David Thewlis

Release: 2017

You kidding me, Firth & Weisz as husband and wife; where do I sign up to be their housekeeper?  Seriously, I was sold before the trailer even came out, and now I’m even more interested.  What an odd true story, and I have no doubt that it will be well-made, from the acting to the direction (The Theory of Everything).  Why haven’t we heard much about it before now though, and why isn’t it in the Oscar race?  Does the studio know something that we don’t, that’s my only concern, but I’m willing to chance it.

Movie Trailer – Hollow in the Land

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Scooter Corkle

Starring: Dianna Agron, Shawn Ashmore

Release: December 8th, 2017

News flash; Dianna Agron is not about to become the next Jennifer Lawrence.  This film is attempting to be Winter’s Bone, to launch its blonde star like that movie did, but Agron just doesn’t have the talent.  Lawrence did, it was obvious, no wonder that feature soared, but this one won’t because its lead isn’t really any better than Glee.

Movie Trailer – Game Night

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein

Starring: Rachel McAdams, Jason Bateman, Kyle Chandler

Release: March 2nd, 2018

Sitting down to watch this trailer, I really didn’t expect to be excited to see this movie, but I really, really am.  I was shocked that I found it to be funny, and looking back I’m not sure why; it’s not like these actors are terrible, I just got a sense that it would simply be another, throwaway comedy, like Sex Tape or something.  But it’s not, it’s very different, and I’m not even sure why.  I’m being vague, I get that, “not sure”, “got a sense”, “didn’t expect”, but I jut can’t put my finger on why I’m confident that I will laugh a lot during this movie.

Movie Trailer – The Post

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Steven Spielberg

Starring: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Bob Odenkirk

Release: January 12th, 2018

I’m legitimately worried that this movie will be terrible.  We saw it with Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford in Truth, and I think we might see the exact same thing with Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in The Post.  It’s a combination of Truth, Bridge of Spies, and Spotlight, and I’m not sure that’s something I’m all that excited to see.  The content is relevant, the actors and director are unquestionably excellent, this film is already getting buzz as the most likely to win Best Picture; I just don’t see it.

Movie Trailer – Den of Thieves

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Christian Gudegast

Starring: Gerard Butler, O’Shea Jackson Jr, 50 CentPablo Schreiber

Release: January 19th, 2018

This movie is filled with guys who are either barely actors or who aren’t actors at all; we should definitely not be surprised when it’s the worst movie of 2018, holding the title all through the year.  I mean, Butler was in 300 but has sucked in literally everything else, O’Shea can only play his own father, 50 is a rapper, and Porn Stash from OITNB will never live down that role.  Also, the director has never directed before; I wish someone would unmake this movie.

Movie Trailer – Thoroughbreds

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Cory Finley

Starring: Anya Taylor-Joy, Olivia Cook, Anton Yelchin

Release: March 9th, 2018

Oh Anton, we miss you.  I wasn’t alive when James Dean died, but losing Dean must have felt like it did to lose Yelchin, a young talent that you knew would grow into a megastar gone way too soon.  I’d watch this movie just to see Anton again, but it also looks like it might actually be good.  I am a bit worried about the amateur director, but the young actresses have chops and I’m hopeful that the film will succeed because of its actors.

Movie Trailer – Winchester

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Michael & Peter Spierig

Starring: Helen Mirren, Jason Clarke

Release: February 2nd, 2018

For a haunted house movie, this doesn’t look terrible, and it has solid actors.  But really, it’s still just a haunted house movie; what makes it any better?
