Movie Trailer – Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: David Yates

Starring: Eddie Redmayne, Jude Law, Katherine Waterston

Release: November 16th, 2018

Am I the only one not excited about this?  I didn’t really enjoy the first Newt movie all that much, and I don’t see why this time will be any different, as much as I really do love Dumbledore and Jude Law.  This movie looks to simply be a giant showing off that is massively dependent on our already being supporters of this universe.  I don’t see anything independently wonderful at all.

Movie Trailer – Sorry to Bother You

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Boots Riley

Starring: Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson

Release: July 6th, 2018

I’ve seen some amazing “bonkers” films, especially in the last year, and I’m always ready for more, but this movie might be too much.  The trailer makes it look that way anyway, but I’ve also heard great things coming out of festival screenings, so I’m torn.  Had I seen this preview cold, I would have said that it looks too out there.

Movie Trailer – The Seagull

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Michael Mayer

Starring: Annette Bening, Saoirse Ronan, Elisabeth Moss

Release: May 11th, 2018

It’s hard to tell if it’s just a strange, old-fashioned, out of touch trailer, or if this movie will actually be this bad.  I like period pieces, I love Saoirse, I’m prepared to enjoy a film like this, but the preview has turned me completely away.  I hope I’m completely wrong, but I think something went sour.  A Chekhov play directed by the guy who brought us the TV show Smash?  I think we might have found the problem.

Movie Trailer – Paterno

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Barry Levinson

Starring: Al Pacino, Riley Keough

Release: April 7th, 2018

This cast is good enough to make this HBO film work (I love Riley Keough), but I’m not sure anyone else involved in the movie is; Levinson hasn’t directed a hit since 1996.  Also, and I hate to say it, but this story feels a little old.  I don’t believe that it’s lost its importance, but I think the time for catching our attention with this version has passed, and so will I.

Movie Trailer – The Grinch

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Yarrow Cheney

Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch

Release: November 9th, 2018

What an awful trailer.  I’d be worried anyway, considering the studio and the untouchable story they’re touching, but this trailer is just the icing on the poisoned cake.  It isn’t funny or interesting, and I’m worried that the same will be true about the entire film.

Movie Trailer – The Outsider

Director: Martin Zandvliet

Release: March 9th, 2018

Basically, this is a mob movie starring Jared Leto and set in Japan?  That’s not good.

Movie Trailer – In the Fade

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Fatih Akin

Starring: Diane Kruger

Release: 2018

Wow, powerful, and I did not see it coming at all.  We’ve seen revenge movies before, but somehow this looks one step above, and I’m excited to give it a real chance to impress me.

Movie Trailer – Guernsey

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Mike Newell

Starring: Lily James, Michiel Huisman, Penelope Wilton

Matthew Goode, Jessica Brown Findlay, Tom Courtenay

Release: April 20th, 2018

I’m not sure if they changed the title or if it was a working title, but this movie used to be called Guernsey, and now it’s The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, which is a stupid name so I refuse to call it that.  Anyway, this movie looks cheesy of course, but I think I still want to see it.  Mainly because Lily James is a phenom, a real star in the making.  She can do so much, and it would take me a long time to list all the things I think she’s been fantastic in.  It’s nice to see some of Downton Abbey reuniting for this film (at least four actors), and there is plenty of other talent on display here too, so I’m hopeful that the skill will outshine the sap and that we will be pleasantly surprised by something more than a historical romance.

Movie Trailer – Kings

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Deniz Gamze Erguven

Starring: Halle Berry, Daniel Craig, Lamar Johnson

Release: April 27th, 2018

This doesn’t really feel like an actual movie, more like an educational video or something they show you in school.  I don’t understand why someone as talented as Halle Berry keeps doing awful films, and why Daniel Craig got within a hundred miles of this project.  I don’t mean to devalue the importance of the story here, but it just doesn’t look professionally done.

Movie Trailer – On Chesil Beach

Category : Movie Trailer

Director: Dominic Cooke

Starring: Saoirse Ronan, Billy Howle

Release: May 18th, 2018

Saoirse may have had one or two stumbles up the ladder, but basically she has risen to the top in 10 years, and should now be considered one of the best young actresses in the business.  And it seems, which is remarkable, that she could go even higher, that she’s barely flexed her muscles, that she could be an all-time great.  This film has a certain Brooklyn feel, but with more anger and more despair, a story that she’s definitely ready to take on.
