Trailer Alert – You Were Never Really Here

Trailer – You Were Never Really Here Starring Joaquin Phoenix

You Were Never Really Here is basically a mix between Man on Fire & Only God Forgives. Need another reason to watch it? The film stars Joaquin Phoenix as Joe, a brutal and tormented enforcer on a rescue mission. If you need more ammo than that, I don’t know what to tell you. The rest of the cast is unknown, but the film is based on the Jonathan Ames novel of the same name. Watch this trailer and cherish it. You Were Never Really Here premieres April 6, 2018.

Trailer Alert – Deadpool 2 (Teaser)

Official Teaser

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.

Trailer Alert – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

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.

Trailer Alert: I, Tonya – Starring Margot Robbie

I, Tonya

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.

Trailer Alert: Gotti

I’m not sure if John Travolta knew he’d be playing John Gotti when he signed up to play Robert Shapiro in the O.J. Simpson True Crime story, but from an aesthetic standpoint Travolta’s portrayal of Shapiro and Gotti look one in the same. John Gotti was such a towering figure in New York during the 70s and 80s that it’d be surprising if you didn’t know who he was. Nicknamed the ‘Teflon Don’, Gotti ruled the mob scene in NYC and became the boss of the Gambino crime family. Whenever it looked like the authorities were closing in on an airtight case, Gotti somehow got out of it, but like all of the bosses before him, Gotti did eventually get locked up and died in prison in 2002. Gotti will explore the mafia kingpin’s meteoritic rise and catastrophic fall, and will be directed by Kevin Connolly (E from Entourage). Gotti premieres December 15th.

Trailer Alert: Red Sparrow

Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to ‘Sparrow School’ a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. But her first mission, targeting a CIA agent, threatens to unravel the security of both nations. – IMDB

Jennifer Lawrence has been in the news a lot lately, mainly because her new movie Mother! is the first movie in quite awhile to either earn lavish praise or hellish scorn. I’ve read about 15 non spoiler reviews of Mother! (I still really want to see it) and there is no middle ground when it comes to people’s feelings on it. Her follow up to Mother! will be Red Sparrow, a thriller helmed by her Hunger Games: Catching Fire & Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2 director Francis Lawrence. Jennifer just turned 27 last month, so it appears she has a lengthy acting career in front of her, and I’m glad to see her taking roles like Mother! and Red Sparrow. It’d be easy for her to embrace the America’s Sweetheart role that everyone seems to want her to play and only do happy go lucky movies, but she’s so versatile that it’d be a shame for her not to switch things up once in awhile. Red Sparrow premieries March 2, 2018.

Trailer Alert: The Shape Of Water (Red Band Trailer)

Simply put: if you enjoy Guillermo Del Toro movies, there’s a high chance you’re going to like The Shape of Water. IMDB explains the plot as “An other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.” Sign me the hell up. Add in Michael Shannon as a borderline psychotic government agent who yells at himself in the mirror and doesn’t understand sign language and you’ve got one hell of an intriguing story. The Shape of Water premieres this December.

Trailer Alert – Killing Gunther

If you watched Saturday Night Live any time between 2010 and the first half of 2016, chances are you know who Taran Killam is. He was the human Swiss army knife of SNL, as he could literally impersonate anyone, and his original characters were just as good (Jebidiah Atkinson, I miss you so). One of the reasons he left SNL was to pursue his own projects, the first of which just got an official trailer. Plainly put, Killing Gunther looks delightful. Taran Killam, Bobby Moynihan, CeCe from New Girl and a slew of other assassins are trying to kill Arnold Schwarzenegger. If that plot doesn’t interest you then maybe we shouldn’t be friends. The trailer has a nice lightness to it, and I can’t wait to check out the whole thing. Hopefully we get an official release date soon.
