Movie Trailers 2016 # 5

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!

Here’s another I’ve not heard of. Liotta and Stiles in a seedy bar. Stalking. Liotta does Pesci. Vikings. Anthony Hopkins does Clint Eastwood. This appears to be a revenge thriller with a stellar, but bizarre cast. One for streaming if the reviews are good.

Things To Know: Based on a recent novel, this sees a woman returning to her hometown to find that it is being run by an ex-cop turned criminal who takes a psychotic interest in her. Rather than run, she takes the fight to him with a couple of unlikely friends.

Whos To Know: Directed by Daniel Alfredson (The Girl Who Played With Fire) and starring Anthony Hopkins, Ray Liotta, Julia Stiles, and Alexander Ludwig.

The BFG

No Doom fans, not that BFG. I have the book, but haven’t read since my childhood, don’t recall it as one of my favourites. Nice effects, hopefully the performances are good. I’m sure it’ll be entertaining as it’s Spielberg, but there isn’t enough in the trailer to make me think a lot of kids would want to see it.

Things To Know: Based on the Roald Dahl classic about a giant who befriends a lonely girl.

Who’s To Know: Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Mark Ryland and Ruby Barnhill.

Memoria

Memories. 11/22/63. Reaching out to help kids avoid making the same mistakes you did? Plotting. Bullying. Booze drugs skateboards. Killer. This one doesn’t give too much away, and shows just enough to interest some people.

Things To Know: Based on a short story by James Franco.

Who’s To Know: Directed by Vladimir de Fontenay and Nina Ljeti and starring Franco, Thomas Mann, and Teo Halm.

I Am Wrath

Looks like another revenge thriller, similar to quite a few we’ve seen in recent years. Man takes on thugs. Possibly man will dance. Having said that, I do like the old ‘scumbags get their comeuppance when one man army hunts them down’ movies, as long as they’re done well. Naturally recent movies have focused more on the gritty side and a very loose look at the moral side of revenge, and this seems no different. Will be interesting to see if Travolta can pull it off.

Things To Know: After witnessing his wife’s murder and the corrupt police forces inability to press charges, an unemployed engineer and his friend use their mysterious past to take matters into their own hands.

Who’s To Know: Directed by Chuck Russell (Elm Street 3The Mask) and starring John Travolta, Rebecca DeMornay, and Christopher Meloni.

David Brent: life On The Road

I don’t like The Office and I cannot abide Ricky Gervais, a talent-free man riding on the coattails of many much smarter and funnier people. But some people like him. People are strange. Safe to say I won’t be watching this. He said ‘cumming’. It’s not funny in the way it thinks it is, nor is it funny in any other way.

Things To Know: A spin-off from The Office.

Who’s To Know: Directed by Gervais and starring Gervais.

Wellity wellity well, which one do you want to see? All? None? Nein? Let us know in the comments!

    After watching what I consider to be two back to back failures for Spielberg (Lincoln and Bridge of Spies), I am hoping that The BFG is a return to form for him. Plus the screenplay is written by the late Melissa Mathison, who also penned E.T. for Spielberg. I am hoping that this will be a great film. Anyway, keep up the great work as always 🙂
