For the record, I’ve actually heard some good things about the upcoming horror film, Come To Daddy. The film, which features Elijah Wood as a troubled man who makes the mistake of visiting his even more troubled father (Stephen McHattie), is said to be a truly frightening and thought-provoking film. We’ll get to see for ourselves when Come To Daddy is released in March!
The Truth is a film about the strained relationship between an legendary actress (Catherine Deneuve) and her screenwriter daughter (Juliette Binoche). Directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda, it’s his first film to be set outside of Japan and not to be in his native language. Completing the international feel of the production is Ethan Hawke, cast as Binoche’s husband.
The Truth received some favorable reviews when it played at both the Venice and the Toronto Film Festivals earlier this year. It will be receiving a general release on March 20th of 2020.
Well, actually, it looks like Pearce is trying to preserve the peace. Of course, he’s trying to preserve it in the most violent way possible but that’s his right. He’s a small town peace officer, after all. And it looks like there’s a lot of bikers coming into town.
Anyway, I like Guy Pearce. And here’s the trailer!
2019 is nearly over and that means that it’s time to start thinking about the films of 2020!
With that in mind, here’s the trailer for the upcoming horror film, Awoken. Apparently, it’s about a woman trying to cure her brother from a life-threatening case of insomnia. Unfortunately, judging from the trailer, it does not look like things are going well.
Russian Sleep Experiment is a term that should strike fear into the heart of everyone.
Here’s the trailer for Wonder Woman 1984, which looks wonderful! I mean, seriously — Wonder Woman and the 80s!? How can’t you love that?
Other things I like about this trailer:
It doesn’t give away too much of the plot!
Wonder Woman using her tiara as a boomerang!
A battle in the White House!
The clothes! The cars!
Chris Pine is back!
The perfect use of New Order’s Blue Monday as the trailer’s soundtrack. Hopefully, this won’t be a case where a song only appears in the trailer!
Now, just from looking online, I can see that some people are already trying to do the whole “here’s the political subtext of Wonder Woman 1984” thing but you know what? There will be time for that later. You’ve got a while to go before the movie comes out so, if you’re so obsessed with politics that you have to bring it into everything, you’ll have plenty of time to do that and bore everyone silly with your analysis. For now, let’s all just enjoy the damn trailer!
Here’s the trailer for The Assistant, starring Ozark‘s Julia Garner as …. well, as an assistant.
(Of course, the correct term in administrative professional.)
I’m usually pretty skeptical of late January/early February releases but this trailer looks pretty good and the film’s been well-reviewed by some sites and people whose opinions I generally respect. I’ve worked as an assistant in an office so, to a certain extent, I could relate to the trailer. Of course, my experiences were never as bad as Julia Garner’s appear to have been. For instance, it recently occurred to me that I’ve never had an employer yell at me. Apparently, that makes me unique or something.
Anyway, prepare to take a journey into wage slavery with the trailer for The Assistant!
You would think that I would be super excited about the fact that my favorite MCU character, the Black Widow, is finally getting her own solo film. (That Brie Larson’s anemic Captain Marvel got her solo film before the Black Widow is an injustice that I’ll never get over.) And I guess I am excited. The trailer, which you can watch below, is pretty good. It looks like an attempt to bring some Bourne/007 action to MCU and that would seem like the perfect approach to take to the character.
If I’m less than enthusiastic, it’s because 1) I’m still upset over what happened to the Black Widow in Avengers: Endgame and 2) this film is a prequel as opposed to a sequel. Which means that, despite starring Scarlett Johansson, the film is not going to open with the Natasha coming back to life. (You have to wonder if, with recent events. anyone in the MCU regrets killing off one of their best characters as opposed to letting Jeremy Renner’s archer take the fall.) Florence Pugh, in Black Widow, is playing a character who apparently took over the Black Widow name in the comic books so here’s my fear: the film will feature a mid-credits scene of Florence Pugh at Natasha’s grave, announcing that she’ll carry on her legacy. That’s my fear.
