Movie Trailers 2016 # 4

Look! Look at the things! Sparkly and new and full of intrigue, like a child fresh over the fields on the first day of Summer, shoving their hand into a muddy hole in the ground and yanking out fistfuls of gem-encrusted spiders. Why are they there? What do they do? Why are they biting me? MUMMY!? That’s right, it’s time for more trailers!

Search Party

 

Ooh, red band. Can’t say I’ve heard of this, so I wonder if there will be blood and guts. Desert. Mexico? So it’s a comedy? Yes. A stoner version of The Hangover, with an uglier cast. Various unlikely escapades. Bro. These overtly male comedy movies aren’t really my sort of thing, looks like several others from recent years.

Things To Know: This had an international release in 2014, so it doesn’t bode well that it’s taken this long to get out elsewhere. The film follows a bachelor party, failed wedding, and attempt to win back both the bride and the groom.

Whos To Know: Directed by Scot Armstrong (writer for Hangover Part II, Road Trip) and starring Thomas Middleditch and Shannon Woodward.

Tale Of Tales

 

Once again, I haven’t heard of this one. Some sort of fairytale inspired fantasy. Salma Hayek. Vengeful Queens. Vincent Cassel. Not sure what’s going on. Seems like a mixture of fairytales with a modern adult twist, intriguing enough but is it on par with Pan’s Labyrnith?

Things To Know: Based off a 17th Century collection of fairy tales, this adaptation will focus on three stories and has so far garnered good reviews praising its visual style.

Whos To Know: Directed  by Matteo Garrone (Gomorrah) and starring Salma Hayek, Vincent Cassel, Toby Jones, and John C Reilly.

Hard Sell

 

Boy, girl, mum. Not sure who is mum and who is girlfriend as they both looked identical. I feel another coming of age romance where the unlikely guy gets the unlikely girl in the end. Mother drama. Become something. Not a lot here to get me on board.

Things To Know: The story revolves around a poor kid in a rich school who team up with a rebellious rich girl to get money from various schemes and turn each others’ lives around.

Whos To Know: Debut film from Sean Nalaboff and starring Katrina Bowden, Skyler Gisondo, and Kristen Chenoweth.

Swiss Army Man

 

I don’t know, Paul Dano usually pisses me off in the same way that Kevin Spacey pissed me off. Suicide attempt. Miraculous salvation. Ah yes, the farting corpse. I have read about this one before. This one looks completely buck nuts, probably not one I’d pay for but wait till it comes to Netflix etc.

Things To Know: Debut film by a directing duo, this has seen mixed reviews due to its bizarre content but strong performances.

Whos To Know: Directed by Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, and starring Paul Dano, Daniel Radcliff, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

Blood Father

 

It’s been a while Mel, welcome back. Gritty. Bearded. One man Mel army? So, Mel is a tough guy who’s trying to save/protect/rescue his daughter from the police/mafia/bikers/murderers? Might be a interesting enough action drama.

Things To Know: Adapted from the book of the same name about a father protecting his estranged daughter.

Whos To Know: Directed by Jean Francis Richet (Assault On Precint 13 Remake) and starring Mel Gibson, Elizabeth Rohm, and William H Macy.

The most varied list so far with a range of genres and subjects tackled. Which ones are you looking forward to, and which are you going to skip – let us know in the comments!
