Plus, it stars Rebecca Hall! I’ll watch anything with Rebecca Hall in it. Well, almost anything. Now that I think about it, she’s appeared in some films that I didn’t really care for but she still always gave a good performance and it really does seem like she should be a bigger star for now. So, let’s hope The Night House is a success!
The Night House premieres on July 16th! Here’s the trailer:
Guy Ritchie and Jason Statham are teaming up for an action revenge thriller, in which Statham kills a lot of of people. That’s really all I can tell from the trailer for Wrath of Man but really, all you need to know is that it’s Ritchie and Statham.
It’s amazing to think that there was once a time when I didn’t like Jason Statham. What was I thinking? I was probably just being a film snob. Today, of course, I realize that he’s the closest thing we’ve got to an old school action hero. Decades from now, people will be doing memes about how tough 90 year-old Jason Statham still is. Who would win in a fight between Jason Statham and Liam Neeson? Neeson, but only becuase Statham would take pity on him and allow him to win. Jason Statham’s cool like that.
Here’s the trailer for Wrath of Man. It premieres on May 7th!
I wrote about the lengthy history of Real Detective here. This cover is from June of 1936. Though the cover artist is unknown, I like the way the man on the cover is grabbing that money. It looks like he either just won it in a card game or maybe he lost it and he’s trying to keep the winner from taking it away from him. Either way, something big is about to happen.
But Not Tonight is a good example of the type of music video that used to dominate MTV, the movie soundtrack video. Depeche Mode recorded But Not Tonight for the film Modern Girls. The video cuts between scenes of the band performing and scenes taken from the movie, which is why Virginia Madsen, Daphne Zuniga, and Clayton Rohner are so prominently featured. The video did well on MTV, which didn’t translate into the movie becoming a hit.
While the movie was directed by Jerry Kramer, the video was directed by Tamra Davis. Davis was a prolific video director before moving into feature film and television directing.
