Detroit (trailer #2)

You might have thought our trailer of the week this week might have been another black centric movie, but as much as I love the Black Panther trailer, I think this Detroit trailer is really something special. Detroit is the next film from acclaimed director Kathryn Bigelow of Point Break (not that new one), The Hurt Locker, and Zero Dark Thirty fame. Set to star a stellar, all be it young cast with the likes of John Boyega, Will Poulter, Jacob Latimore, Hannah Murray, and even the likes of Anthony Mackie, plus so many more, this movie looks to deliver some great performances.

The story is of course based on true events, with a script penned by Mark Boal who has worked with Bigelow before on The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark. It centers around a police raid that occurred in 1967 which then lead to some of the worst riots in American history, seeing even the National Guard being mobilized. I think this is going to be a really visceral and intense movie, made all the more difficult to watch knowing of how much truth lies behind its narrative. What do you think about the trailer? Does this movies look like something you’re going to want to see, or do you think it will be too much for you?

Coco (Trailer 1)

Now I know what you’re thinking, “I’ve seen this movie before, and it was called the Book of Life”, and you’re not really wrong. Coco comes to us from the heavy hitters that are Disney Pixar, who are known for a a laundry list of amazing films, so I think as much as this idea might seem to be taken, I think we have to give this film the benefit of the doubt that it will one of real quality.

Coco follows a young boy, who find himself on the wrong side of the tracks after the annual Day of the Dead celebrations, putting him in a place where no living person has set foot before. The movie also uses a mostly hispanic cast of voice talent to lend  a lot of authenticity to this project. The movie is directed by two directors who have been main stays in many of the previous Pixar movie line up, getting their bump up to full time directors for Coco. Though this trailer is mostly an introductory teaser trailer, we can really get a scene for the visual style, and their take on the classic Day of the dead imagery, and is a slight departure from the generally more photo-realistic styles used in pervious Pixar films. Are you excited to see Coco, or think its just gonna be a Book of Life knock off?

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!

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (final trailer)

Avatar meets the Fifth Element…I hope. That’s how I would describe what Valerian is to someone who’s never heard the name, and that sounds pretty good to me honestly. Valerian and the city of a thousand planets is the latest from long time director Luc Besson. Based on the Valerian and Laureline, a french 1960s comic book series, it sees the title characters on an adventure set on the planet like city of Alpha, a city thats home to a vast array of species and creatures.

The movie stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevigne in the title roles, but also boasts a solid supporting cast of well known actors and personalities. I’m personally a big fan of DeHaan’s acting, and think he brings both an intensity and a down to earth-ness that gives him a presence on screen while keeping him identifiable. Delevigne on the other hand, still has yet to impress me, and even in her best on screen performance so far in Paper Towns, I still don’t know if she can hold her own both against DeHaan and as a co-lead here.

Valerian is set to be one the most visual journeys of the year, but will it be able to put the backbone of story that a movie like this needs. If Besson can deliver another movie on the level of his Fifth Element, but with the added benefit of modern day technology. Are you excited for Valerian? Were you planning to see it, or are you considering it now?

Blade Runner 2049 (Trailer #1)

 

A slower week for trailers than last week, but we still got ourselves a hit with the first full length trailer for the upcoming Blade Runner 2049. After getting a tease last week, we only had to wait a few days to get first official trailer for long in demand sequel. The film sees the return of the title character portrayed by Harrison Ford, but not as the lead character here. That honor goes to Ryan Gosling, who plays a new young blade runner, who seeks some answers and Ford’s former blade runner might be his only help.

Set in the same futuristic world created by Ridley Scott back in 1982, new director  Denis Villeneuve takes over the reigns here and while he doesn’t seem to be trying to change the look of the movies too much, he certainly up dated them and is clearly also adding some of his signature directing style that he has come to be known and respected for. With a list of previous movies boasting Arrival, Sicario, and Prisoners, I personally think there wasn’t much of a better choice to lead this new Blade Runner movie to hopefully new heights. Are you excited for Blade Runner 2049, and how do you think it will do compared to the original?

Trailer of the Week!

Hey guys, just wanted to keep adding to the blog, so in that spirit I start a new ongoing series here called Trailer of the Week! Where every week, (usually on Friday) I will give out my choice for the best trailer of the week, why I think its such, and some info on the movie it supports. Hope you guys enjoy, lets get it started.

This weeks trailer of the week is:

Dunkirk (Main trailer)

This week has been a real good one for trailers, and it picking a top trailer wasn’t easy. The first trailer for Dark Tower, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and even the new Cars 3 trailer were all strong competitors. Then came Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk trailer… and wow. Dunkirk tells the true story (one of biggest true stories we’ve yet to get adapted in this form) of one of the largest evacuation of troops ever attempted when 400,000 allied soldiers were cut off and surrounded by the German army and had no where to turn. The rescue events enlist not just available troops, but also ropes in civilians that use their own personal boats to add to the rescue efforts.

This is Christopher Nolan’s latest project and features some new and old faces to his typical line-ups. Staring Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, James D’Arcy, and even Harry Styles among many others that let to movie boast a stellar cast to match some stellar visuals, and what so far is an intense and gripping score. Set to drop the end of July this year and will probably look to really up its marketing game from this point going forward. What do you think about the Dunkirk (main trailer), what are your hopes for the movie and are you planning to see it cinemas?
