There haven’t been many trailers to share, lately. That’s largely due to the uncertainty that’s surrounding COVID-19 and when — if ever — certain films are going to be able to get a theatrical release. That said, there is a new trailer out and I think that a lot of our readers are going to be interested in it.
So, without further ado….
Inmate #1 is a documentary about how all-around badass Danny Trejo went from being a convict to being a cultural icon. As anyone who has ever seen Trejo interviewed can tell you, he’s got an inspiring life story and he’s also a wonderful storyteller. I’m looking forward to seeing this documentary, which will be released in the United States on July 7th.
This trailer just dropped today and I watched it and I thought the movie looked like it might be fun. It’s called A Rough Draft and it’s about a video game designer who gets sucked into some sort of multi-dimensional portal or something like that. I mean, the plot sound stupid but the trailer looked like it could be entertaining. If nothing else, it looked like it might be the Asylum version of Ready Player One and y’all know how much I love The Asylum.
But then I did some research and I discovered that this movie was released in Russia in 2018 and apparently, the Russian critics hated it and it was a total bust at the box office. A Rough Draft is based on a popular Russian novel so it was a widely anticipated release but the general consensus was that it didn’t live up to what people were hoping for.
I mean, that happens, right? The trailer still looks like fun.
Then I discovered that the film is now available to stream on Prime. Apparently, it just dropped like two days ago, with absolutely no fanfare. So, I guess I’ll watch it next and discover whether or not it’s actually any good.
While we think about what won at the Oscars, we can also think about some of the movies that will be coming up over the next couple of months!
For instance, let’s consider the upcoming film, Resistance. Resistance is being distributed by IFC films and it stars two past Oscar nominees, Jesse Eisenberg and Ed Harris. The film deals with how, as a young man, the French mime Marcel Marceau was a member of the French Resistance. Eisenberg plays Marceau while Ed Harris will play American General George Patton. It’s an inspiring story and it has all the elements for a good and powerful film.
Resistance will be released on March 27th. Here’s the trailer:
Out of the three shows that are featured in the teaser below, it’s the one with Wanda and Vision that most interests me. I can’t wait to see what happens with those two characters. And, of course, there’s no way I couldn’t smile a little when Loki popped up. His death in Infinity War depressed me almost as much as Black Widow’s death in Endgame.
Actually, the <inions are cute. One of the first things that Arleigh and I bonded over was our love of the Minions. That said, I have my doubts that there’s really much more that can be done with the Minions. Still, I get the feeling this new movie will be cute.
No Time To Die is the 25th James Bond film and apparently, it’s going to be Daniel Craig’s last. I’ve been pretty critical of Craig’s interpretation of Bond and I hated SPECTRE but the Super Bowl teaser for No Time To Die actually looked kind of good.
So, let’s hope for a film that will leave us stirred and not shaken!
Hell yeah! This teaser is literally one of the main reasons I’m watching the Super Bowl this year! I’m a little bit worried that the movie is going to be like, “Yes, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow is dead but here’s a replacement that we won’t have to pay as much!” but still, I can’t wait to see it.
Seriously, if I could be any MCU character, I would be the Black Widow. (I also would have shoved Jeremy Renner off that cliff in Endgame. Seriously, I’m still mad about that scene.)
Here it is! The Top Gun: Maverick Super Bowl spot!
This spot admittedly doesn’t really tell you a lot about the film. Tom Cruise is back, but we already knew that. Val Kilmer shows up for a second or two. Lots of airplanes, of course. And really, that’s probably all that this preview needed to be effective.
