Trailer of the Week!

This weeks trailer of the week is:

Logan Lucky (Trailer #1)


Another week, another surprise from the trailer Gods with the debut trailer for the upcoming Logan Lucky (yes thats how its supposed to be) movie. First time writer Rebecca Blunt wrote the script that was directed by Steven Soderbergh of the Oceans movies franchise. Teaming up again with this Magic Mike star Channing Tatum, plus a stellar cast including Adam Driver, Katie Holmes, Katherine Waterston, Seth MacFarlane, Sebastian Stan, Hilary Swank, and what looks to be an enormous role from Daniel Craig, Logan Lucky looks to be another hit under Soderbergh’s belt.


It tells the story of two brothers (Tatum and Driver) who seeks to pull off a daring robbery at a big time Nascar race event, with some help from Daniel Craig’s Joe Bang. It seems like the entire cast here will also be sporting some very distinct, but so far very well done, southern accents, in a film that looks to be a cross between Ocean’s Eleven and Talladega Nights. This movie managed to fly in under the radar really till this debut trailer, and that was a great thing for it as it really allowed them to set the stage for the reveal of this new side of Daniel Craig that we haven’t seen before. What do you think about the trailer? Excited to see this movie, or does it look like a pass? Either way its our Trailer of the Week!


In Case you Missed It!

Midnight Special:


Jeff Nichols both wrote and directs Midnight Special, and I think that really tells in the final product. Sometimes being so close to a project can be a hindrance, as you might not be able to be as critic as you would need to be, but here, it really helps this movie keep a focus and pacing the never seems to stray from where it should, or needs to be.


Midnight special is a real fusion of the best aspects of science fiction, with the pure tension and unease of a great thriller. The first sounds and shots of this movie, drop you into the middle of a narrative, closer to its climax than its start, forcing you to lean on every word and expression to try and piece together what is happening as or before the movie itself begins to reveal more and more.


This movie is also really well shot, and that cinematography is compounded upon by a pulse raising score that elevates the heart rate, and an all around very impressive ensemble acting cast. If you like movies that keep your attention and constantly raise as many questions as they answer…If you’re a fan of great but subtle acting…If you’re a fan of the idea of a real science fiction thriller, then Midnight Special is a movie you will most definitely appreciate, and it has an ending that you and anyone else you make watch this movie can discuss for a long time.
