Barry – Spring 2018
The synopsis for Barry is simple: Bill Hader stars as Barry, a seasoned assassin who discovers a new passion for acting while on assignment in Los Angeles. Add in the fact that this will be airing on HBO, and you have one of the more anticipated shows of 2018. I’m a huge Hader fan dating back to his SNL days, and I think his brand of humor will be perfect for this role. Not a lot is known about this show according to IMDb, but Alec Berg is listed as a writer and director. If you don’t know that name, you’ve probably heard of some of the shows he’s worked on. Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm & Silicon Valley just to name a few. This is only a teaser trailer, but with a spring 2018 debut planned, I’m assuming a full trailer is coming soon.
Andre The Giant Documentary
Both literally and figuratively, Andre the Giant was larger than life. At 7’4 and weighing anywhere between 460 and 530 pounds, Andre is one of the most popular figures in pro wrestling history. He dominated the sport in the 70s and 80s, wrestling all over the world to the delight of every fan. While many people remember Andre for his heel turn against Hulk Hogan during the build to WrestleMania III, he was so much more than that. In a world of bright stars and flashy gimmicks, Andre stood above them all.
HBO Sports, Bill Simmons and WWE are co producing the documentary on Andre the Giant, and HBO just released the first look. It’s just a teaser, but after the work ESPN did on the Ric Flair 30 for 30, I cant’ wait to see what HBO does with Andre’s incredible story. While 30 for 30s are great, HBO Sports is the premier sports documentary production. Broad Street Bullies. Magic & Bird: A Courtship of Rivals. Nine Innings From Ground Zero. No matter the sport, HBO always delivers. They’ve never entered the world of pro wrestling before, but with Bill Simmons and WWE involved, I have faith they’ll put something incredible together. The doc is slated for release sometime in Spring 2018, so be on the lookout for an official trailer sometime soon.
All The Money In The World – December 22nd
All The Money In The World has lived an interesting life even before it’s 12/22 release date. The film originally had Kevin Spacey the lead as J. Paul Getty, but after sexual assault allegations against the actor came to light, director Ridley Scott made the change to Christopher Plummer. I never saw any footage or trailer with Spacey in the lead role so I have nothing to compare this to, but Plummer looks like a natural fit for the role.
The film is based on the real life kidnapping of J. Paul Getty’s grandson John Paul III. It’s a pretty insane story, and seems like a perfect fit for the big screen. Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams also star, and Wahlberg can now add ex CIA agent to his long list of insane characters. Kudos to Ridley Scott for reshooting and editing this movie at the last minute so it could still meet it’s release date. The opposite of kudos to Kevin Spacey for being a world class piece of shit.

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.
