This is the trailer for Dead Reckoning. The trailer looks low budget and kind of predictable but that explosion at the end had to have cost some money, right? Anyway, this film looks very melodramatic and very silly and very over the top and I imagine I’ll probably love it for exactly those reasons.
I’m Your Woman is an upcoming 70s crime drama, which is another way of saying that it’s a film about people who surround themselves with wood paneling and shag carpeting. In this one, Rachel Brosnahan plays a woman who is forced to go on the run after her husband betrays his criminal partners.
I’m Your Woman will be released on Prime on December 11th. Here’s the trailer:
Yes, yes …. I know. I’m two days late in sharing this. Listen, these things happen and I think you should find it within your soul to forgive me. After all, how can you be angry when I’m sharing a trailer for a PIXAR film?
Personally, I have loved just about every PIXAR film that I’ve ever seen. That said, I also think that it’s possible that PIXAR is secretly run by aliens who want to see how frequently someone can be traumatized before they totally give up on happiness. From all of the toys being given away in Toy Story 3 to the first ten minutes of Up, PIXAR is all about getting people to cry. I’ve cried during every PIXAR film that I’ve ever watched, with exception of those movies about the talking cars.
This latest PIXAR film is called Soul and it’s about just that. It’s about …. well, the plot sounds really strange to me so I’m not even sure if I want to try to type it out. I will say that it involves death and not giving up on your dreams and celebrating life and it’ll probably make me cry a lot.
Soul was originally going to be released into theaters but we all know what they say about the best laid plans of Disney and PIXAR. So, instead, it’ll be released on Disney+ on Christmas Day. Hopefully, Disney+ will let its subscribers watch it, as opposed to charging them an extra thirty dollars for the opportunity. (That’s right …. I’m looking at you, Mulan!)
The upcoming film Jungleland features a trio of underrated actors: Charlie Hunnam, Jack O’Connell, and Jonathan Majors. It’s a film about a bare knuckles boxer who travels across the country with his brother, who also happens to be his manager. I assume that they solve crimes or something. The important thing, though, is to remember the friends that everyone made along the way.
Anyway, Jungleland is due to be released on November 6th and here’s the trailer:
Yesterday, the second trailer for Ammonite dropped.
Up until a few months ago, Ammonite was getting a lot of buzz as a possible best picture nominee. That buzz has died down a bit and it seems like, whenever I read anything about the Oscar race, Ammonite is kind of getting overshadowed by the acclaim that’s greeted Nomadland and One Night In Miami. One thing that I’ve repeatedly seen is people who have seen the film saying that it doesn’t quite work but that’s it’s beautifully acted by Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan. Probably not coincidentally, Winslet and Ronan are both still very much a part of the current Oscar speculation even if Ammonite is no longer the Best Picture favorite that it once was.
Myself, I’m still looking forward to seeing the film. Winslet is one of the greatest actress of her generation and Ronan is one of the greatest of her’s. Anything that brings these two together should be worth watching.
All Joking Aside is a new film from Quiver Pictures, which will be released, on demand, in November. November 13th, to be exact!
It’s a film set in the world of stand-up comedy. Raylene Harewood plays a young, aspiring comedian who develops an unusual friendship with an older, jaded comic after he heckles during her first open mic. The film was directed by Shannon Kohli. To quote Kohli from the film’s press release, “While more and more funny women are breaking through and establishing a presence in popular culture, it’s a trend that needs to be supported and I really hope that this film can play a part in that.” That sounds good to me!
Here’s the trailer!
All Joking Aside will be released on November 13th.
