Movie Trailer – Mary Queen of Scots

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Josie Rourke

Starring: Saoirse Ronan, Margot Robbie, Guy Pearce

Release: December 7th, 2018

This is basically Josie Rourke’s first film, and that concerns me, if only because these powerhouse actresses and this epic story could escape the control of someone without a ton of experience, causing the movie itself to barrel on without restraint, which obviously wouldn’t be a great thing.  But let’s give Rourke the benefit of the down, let’s say the film is a smashing success; it’ll be its two stars that take it there.  What a pairing, Ronan and Robbie, either of them could win Best Actress, it’s almost too much talent to have on screen at once in dialogue.  I’m excited to see this film, to see what it can be; I just hope nothing goes wrong.

Movie Trailer – The Favourite

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Yorgos Lanthimos

Starring: Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone, Olivia Colman

Release: November 23rd, 2018

Dogtooth, The Lobster, The Killing of a Sacred Deer; to see a Lanthimos movie is to take a daring chance, but the result is usually something wickedly entertaining.  He’s such a unique director, and I’m glad he’s found success, because his wacky vision is a breath of fresh air, and Hollywood will only benefit by being pushed away from the norm by someone who is anything but.  This film looks funny and strange and uncomfortable and dirty, and the cast is brilliant.  There’s really no reason not to watch.

Stranger Things much?  First It, now this; I know people are gonna copy what’s successful, but try not to make it so obvious.

Movie Trailer – The Hate U Give

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: George Tillman Jr.

Starring: Amanda Stenberg, Anthony Mackie, Regina Hall

Release: October 19th, 2018

Like Detroit, this movie will be powerfully intended but weakly delivered, which is a shame, because these stories need to be told.  I guess that, as films with POC as their main characters rightly increase, there might be some growing pains as they are inexpertly produced.  That’s fine, we’re here to support the movement, I just have to call a poor trailer a poor trailer, and I have to predict that the independent quality of this adaptation will leave much to be desired.

Movie Trailer – Mandy

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Panos Cosmatos

Starring: Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough, Linus Roache

Release: September 14th, 2018

“Nicolas Cage gives the performance of a lifetime”?  That wouldn’t be so hard, SINCE HE’S THE WORST ACTOR IN THE HISTORY OF FILM!  Why do people keep casting this guy?  He’s terrible, awful, shouldn’t be here, yet is a mazillionaire.  Christ.

Movie Trailer – The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Jody Hill

Starring: Josh Brolin, Danny McBride, Montana Jordan

Release: July 6th, 2018

Oh no, Netflix, what have you done.  You made Josh Brolin look like a fool, you kept Danny McBride in the spotlight, and you cast some random kid with an accent because that’s supposed to be funny.  That’s a whole lot of wrong right there, and I’m gonna need you to make up for it a different time, because you now owe us an apology.

Movie Trailer – Beautiful Boy

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Felix Van Groeningen

Starring: Steve Carell, Timothee Chalamet, Amy Ryan

Release: October 12th, 2018

Chills.  I got actually chills.  And I’m a cynic, so that’s a big deal.  This cast, this true story, the heart behind it that you can already see; this is something special.  And if you’ve seen Broken Circle Breakdown, you know that this director is used to doing the heavy lifting, that he won’t shy away from tragedy.  Wow, I can’t wait.

Movie Trailer – Support the Girls

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Andrew Bujalski

Starring: Regina Hall, Haley Lu Richardson

Release: August 24th, 2018

I really liked Regina Hall in People Places Things, and I’m willing to give her a chance in this, even if it doesn’t look quite as funny.  I saw Bujalski’s last film, Results, and it was OK, but not special.  Hall & Richardson will need to be perfect to make this film great; I think there’s a real chance that they can.
