Movie Trailer – The Kid Who Would Be King

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Joe Cornish

Starring: Louis Ashbourne Serkis, Dean Chaumoo, Angus Imrie

Release: March 1st, 2019

This looks brilliant, as I think British people would say; aren’t they just the coolest?  Really, British people are better than other people, it’s something to do with the accents and the dry humor, or maybe with the rain, who knows.  But this movie looks done right, aimed at kids and their families in a way that promises entertainment for everyone.  And then Rebecca Ferguson & Patrick Stewart pop in for good measure?  Sign me up.

Movie Trailer – Destroyer

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Karyn Kusama

Starring: Nicole Kidman, Sebastian Stan

Release: December 25th, 2018

This isn’t Kidman’s usual type of role, which just might be the perfect thing for her.  Recently she’s been delivering peak performances (The Killing of a Sacred Deer, The Beguiled), but she’s never been one of my favorite actresses, her characters are all too breathy & flustered & melodramatic.  But this role looks like it might challenge her in exactly the way that will bring out her best, and I’m ready to watch.

Movie Trailer – Jonathan

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Bill Oliver

Starring: Ansel Elgort, Suki Waterhouse, Patricia Clarkson

Release: November 16th, 2018

What a dumb premise, and I feel bad for anyone who falls for it.  It’s a stupid, YA, no talent idea that won’t be elevated to something else, mostly because this cast couldn’t possibly do that.

Movie Trailer – The Aftermath

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: James Kent

Starring: Keira Knightley, Alexander Skarsgard, Jason Clarke

Release: April 26th, 2019

Kent’s only other feature is Testament of Youth, which I really liked, and which features some excellent young actors who have since become, or were in the process of becoming, stars.  I think he will handle this period nicely, and these actors are good enough to pull off these roles, there’s no doubt about that.  What I worry about is that we just saw the entire film, minus the ending, so we’ll only be waiting on the main character’s final choice, we already know most everything else.  A period piece, WWII, a different angle, this cast; I’m there for all that, but does this film have anything else to offer other than what we can easily see on the surface, that’s the question we’ll need to have answered.

Movie Trailer – High Life

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Claire Denis

Starring: Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Mia Goth

Release: November 7th, 2018

There has been considerable buzz about this movie coming out of the festivals, mostly that it’s bizarre, but I’m OK with that.  I’m OK with Robert Pattinson in a wacky space thriller where he has to donate his sperm for some reason, and Juliette Binoche rules over it all like a wicked queen.  That’s not everyone’s cup of tea, that’s for sure, but I’m in line without hesitation.

Movie Trailer – Galveston

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Melanie Laurent

Starring: Ben Foster, Elle Fanning

Release: October 19th, 2018

I love that Laurent is continuing to direct, and this would be her biggest picture to date, so good for her.  She’s talented, but I do worry that this film feels like too many others, which is something that new directors cling to, recycling what they know has worked before.  That sometimes leads to great things, there’s no reason it can’t here, I’m simply a little hesitant.  But Foster is a genius, and Fanning is improving with age, so perhaps we should give this movie a chance, even if the trailer doesn’t make it look spectacular.

Movie Trailer – Aladdin (2019)

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Guy Ritchie

Starring: Mena Massoud, Will Smith, Naomi Scott

Release: May 24th, 2019

What a stupid teaser, what a fucking stupid fucking teaser.  Oh this movie is going to be terrible, so incredibly terrible, I can smell it a mile away, without even having seen any idiotic footage, which is no fault of my own, by the way, Disney.  Guy Ritchie?  Will Smith? Are you kidding me?!  I will literally find a hat and eat it if this movie is anything other than a disaster.  I know this is just a teaser, the full trailer could look completely different, but there are a thousand red flags up, and my money is on “bust”.

Movie Trailer – Pet Sematary (2019)

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Kevin Kolsch, Dennis Widmyer

Starring: Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, John Lithgow

Release: April 5th, 2019

King is my favorite author, obviously this movie has been done before, but I think this team will do both the book and the original film justice, because I’m scared for my life already.  Creepy, disturbing, frightening, gross; however you want to describe it, this trailer looks to be leading us down a very dark hole.  And no, I don’t want to go, but I have to see what’s down there.

Movie Trailer – Bodied

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Joseph Kahn

Starring: Calum Worthy

Release: November 2nd, 2018

Kahn does music videos, Eminem was a rapper, and now they’re combining to make a racially-charged comedy starring a guy no one’s ever heard of before?  That shouldn’t work, yet this trailer looks hilarious and I’m gonna be first in line to see this movie.

Movie Trailer – The Mule

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Clint Eastwood

Starring: Clint Eastwood, Bradley Cooper, Michael Peña

Release: December 14th, 2018

This movie looks like a cross between Sicario, Hell or High Water, and A Perfect World, which is alright with me.  Eastwood stars and directs, he brings in Cooper, who might be his protegee, and all looks to go smoothly, at least judging by the trailer.  Robert Redford may have done his swan song this year, this could be Clint Eastwood’s, and we might be seeing the end of an era, so don’t miss out.
