A Quiet Place – April 2018
I’m not one of those people who screams to my cats “there’s no originality in Hollywood!” I’m not that guy mainly because I enjoy most movies. But i’m also not that guy because of movies like A Quiet Place. If you keep your eyes, ears and heart open enough, you’re bound to stumble across movies like this. It’s like one giant, high-stakes version of the quiet game. Which is really cool. Hopefully the trailers will keep the monsters hidden until I get into the theater. John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are married irl so it will be interesting to see there onscreen chemistry via sign language.
Deadpool is BACK.
If you follow Ryan Reynolds on Twitter (which you really should be doing) you know he has a very specific and hysterical sense of humor. Fans got a tiny sense of that humor peppered throughout his film career, but when Deadpool came out last year, you saw it in full force. Deadpool was a critical and box office success, and most of that credit has to go to Reynolds, who has been passionate about getting the movie made his way for a long time. Like most movies that do well in the box office, there is a sequel, but Reynolds and company continue to put their unique spin on everything, including teaser trailers. For most of this trailer Reynolds (as Wade Wilson) does his best Bob Ross impression, and it does not disappoint. Deadpool 2 is slated for release on June 1, 2018.

As far as movie title’s go, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is as on the nose as it gets. The movie is literally about a mother with a missing daughter who uses three billboards outside of Ebbing, Missouri to get the police to pay attention to her pleas for help. It’s got a dynamite cast, including Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell & Peter Dinklage. It’s also safe to say nobody plays a better angry character than Frances McDormand, and that’s on full display here. If you don’t believe me, watch the trailer all the way through until the scene where she’s driving by the field reporter trying to film her piece for the news. The movie is slated for release on November 10th, and has already racked up a 98% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The Tonya Harding story is one that people usually remember because of one event: when she had her boyfriend beat up Nancy Kerrigan’s knee with a pipe. Like most stories that focus on one day of a person’s life, there’s MUCH more to the story. The trailer for I, Tonya has a Wolf of Wall Street feel, as Robbie switches between acting for the camera and acting to the camera. There are a few shots where she’s talking directly to the audience, which I’ve always been a fan of as it keeps the audience on it’s toes. I, Tonya does have not an official release date as of this writing.
Anyone like me who has seen and enjoyed Man on the Moon has to be interested in this new Netflix documentary featuring a ton of behind the scenes footage from the set. Andy Kaufman was such a unique and singular figure that it almost seemed impossible for someone to be able to portray him accurately, but Carrey’s turn as Kaufman was great. If you’re wondering how someone could transform into Kaufmann without losing a bit of themselves, you mustn’t wonder anymore, as Carrey seems to go into full detail about how he lost himself in this role. Kauffman was one of his comedic inspirations, so it’s easy to understand why he wanted to commit so fully to the part, but it clearly took a toll on him and everyone on set. Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond premieres on Netflix November 17th.
Trailer Alert – The Last Jedi
WARNING: This trailer contains potential spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. If you’d like to go into The Last Jedi fresh, then skip this trailer and just watch the first trailer to help ease your nerves. Having said all that….THIS TRAILER FUCKS. I am beyond hyped for this. Like more excited than I was for Episode VII. That’s REALLY excited. So excited that I may try to stuff myself into an industrial sized freezer so. I can be preserved and then thawed for the premiere of this film (A la Eric Cartman waiting for the Nintendo Wii).
Does this look something you’d want to see? …What a stupid question, of course it is. The question is how many times will you see it? Me, I’m going to see it at least 3 times (regular, 3D and IMAX 3D). That should hold me over until I can watch the blu-ray extras so many times that the disc breaks in a million pieces.
The Justice League
Great trailer. The masterful Superman tease/dream (which we all knew was coming, don’t start bitching) was exactly what this final trailer needed. Everything else in the trailer, we’ve pretty much have seen before. AND still no big, out-in-the-open reveal of the villain, which is just the way I like it. It’s almost like they’re learning from the marketing/trailers of Batman V Superman.
HBO’s documentary wing consistently pushes out the year’s best documentaries, and judging by the trailer for Spielberg, which premieres Saturday night, their latest effort will be no different. Spielberg started directing in the late 60s and has turned into one of the most notable and influential filmmakers of all time. There isn’t much I can say about him that isn’t already known, so my advice would be to plop down on your couch Saturday and watch this doc.
