Movie & TV News (#4)

Three of the latest news fresh out of Movieland I’m most excited about

 

Stranger Things

News_03This is another series that just got a new release date and a new poster! I haven’t had the chance to watch this one yet. I know, I know… no excuses, but I just didn’t want to get up in all the hype. The trailer got me really excited, but with everyone loving and praising it, I wanted to wait a little bit until the storm settled before watching it, so I would be able to give my honest review of it. But it’s definitely on my watchlist this summer.

Now this poster has got me even more excited. The sky seems crazy with all the red and with the four kids standing and watching it turn and twist, a feeling of impending doom settles over you. The craziness is far from over if we can believe this poster. I can’t wait to watch this series and then continue directly with the second season. I still have a few months before October 27th is here.

Quentin Tarantino has a new project in the works

News_04Now this is a director that I can see tackling this project. If you know anything about the Manson Murders, then you know it was quite a shock in the entire movie world. With the death of Sharon Tate, the wife of Roman Polanski, and four other persons, this is a gruesome story and one that will impact Polanski in a big way.

We will have to wait to see what Tarantino will do with this story, but if he goes the same route as he did with Inglorious Bastards, we can expect a crazy film with the story loosely based on real events but with his signature style. I’m interested.

Outlander Season 3

News_01We finally have a release date for the new season on Starz. This is one of my favourites series of all times. I’m obsessed with Scotland and have been for years, blame it all on Braveheart (aka. my favourite film of all times). Whenever I hear bagpipes I lose myself in a sort of trance, so you don’t even want to know how I excited I get whenever the title song of Outlander comes on.

After a shocking first season and a second season full of twists and turns and heartbreak, I am totally ready for a more action-packed third season where hopefully we get some more scenes between Jamie and Claire. The first season was packed with cute and steamy scenes between these two and in the second season we see them apart as well. I hope the third season will be able to put them back together. Because these two together is just chemistry.

The use of history with the magical element and a love story that spans several centuries is just so interesting. The production design on this entire series is out of this world and the actors are subtle, but so strong in their rendition of these characters. I seriously can’t wait for september 10th.

 

What do you think? Which of these three news are you most excited about? Let me know in the comments below.

New Trailer Reviews (#5)

Star Trek: Discovery (Netflix)

Netflix gives Star Trek a go

It’s quite interesting to see the different movie franchises taking the step to the small screen. And here we even get a franchise that started on the small screen, jumped to the big screen and is now leaping back to small screen. And with Netflix it’ll come even to our phone screens. I’m actually excited about this one. It seems great and the production design seems out of this world. I just hope it doesn’t go the way the current Marvel stories are evolving into. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how it’ll go.  

From the Land of the Moon

Marion Cotillard at her best

This movie looks so great. It gives me the feeling of a beautiful European art film. Marion Cotillard is great and is back to what she can do best: deep and dramatic roles. This film will probably rip my heart out, throw it on the ground and stomp all over it. It’s been a long time since seeing such a film that got me really excited, with an interesting story and cast. So I’ll definitely check this one out on the big screen.

Paddington 2

Yes, he’s back

When it was first announced they were making a second Paddington, I was a bit hesitant. I loved the first one so much and I didn’t want them to screw it up. But now after seeing this first teaser I’m actually really excited. Paddington is really sweet and I do have the feeling the family is even more involved in this story. I can’t wait to see what they all get up to and what the story will be all about.

Rough Night

Euhm… What?

This just seems so wrong. It looks like one of those films again. I think they want to make another movie with strong women, to empower us, but I don’t think they are hitting their mark. It seems pushed. It seems strained. This is a perfect movie to watch with my friends on a slow saturday night, but not on the big screen.

Logan Lucky

Steven Soderbergh is here to wauw us again

With a cast of Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, Seth MacFarlane, Adam Driver and Riley Keough, this movie can’t be anything but great. And especially with Steven Soderbergh in the director seat and with this amazing trailer, this is a movie I’ll definitely see in cinema’s. It looks crazy and so much fun and I… Can’t… Wait… 😀

Victoria and Abdul

The queen and her friend invite us

This movie and the story, the story that is known by everyone, this will be a great one. This will touch everybody. This certainly will touch me. And with Dame Judi Dench, you know the acting will be on point. I don’t even want to tell more about it, because this is certainly one I will watch. And the sooner it gets out, the better.

What do you think? Are any of these films on your watchlist? And which ones will you be seeing in cinemas?
