New Trailer Reviews (#11)

Wind River

Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen reunite

This seems like an amazing thriller, where you’ll be sitting at the edge of your seat for the entire movie. Putting this movie in sdsd, they have the opportunity to use the harsh living conditions and the surrounding nature, to increase the tension and the action. From the different reviews showed in the trailer and the different I’ve read online, this seems a thriller like none other and one that is truly special. Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen have this connection on screen that will surely help the movie and the story develop. This is one that I’m asap going to put on my ‘to watch’-list.

Professor Marston & the Wonder Women

The story behind the comics

First we get the Origin story of Wonder Woman (and the first solo female superhero movie), and now we get a behind the scenes look at the lives of the her writer. And it’s an unconventional one. There has always been rumors and different facts that have been circulating about Mr. Marston and his polyamorous relationship with his wife and a former student. Both had a huge impact on the creation of Wonder Woman and on her feminist background. Another really interesting movie and one I definitely want to watch. The entire story is just so interesting to me and I hope to get a glimpse in how Wonder Woman was created.

Only the Brave

Story of Survival & Friendship

At first glance, when the trailer starts, I had the feeling that this would be yet another thriller, survival, disaster movie, but while the trailer continues, the story shifts. They focus on the story of these guys, this band of brothers you can say, who want to help, who train, who get through so much, each for their own reasons, but at the end of the day, to survive, to help and to save their town and their loved ones. Pulling the story more towards the human stories and their backgrounds, away from the pure disaster movie, it makes it so much more interesting. Definitely a must-watch for me.

The Shape of Water

The newest from Guillermo Del Toro

This seems like such an interesting story like none I have seen before. And such a story in the hands of Guillermo Del Toro, always gives us a really beautiful, yet gripping, sometimes frightening movie. It has his specific style through and through. And from the beauty of the images and the combination with the music from Alexandre Desplat, you can be sure that it will enthrall and mesmerize you. This is another movie I have been eagerly waiting for and I can’t wait until it drops in cinemas.

The Snowman

The Snowman is coming for you

What is it with movies with crazy psychopath killers. This is the second on in this list. Here we get one that is obsessed with the snow and calls himself The Snowman. Now, it does seem a little bit different and I’m quite looking forward to see how Michael Fassbender will be in this movie, but I’m not quite sure I’m going to see this one in cinemas. I’ll probably pick it up when it’s in stores to see it at home.

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

SDCC 2017 – News & Trailers

Pacific Rim: Uprising (Teaser Trailer)

And rise we will

I’m so ashamed to admit that I haven’t seen Pacific Rim by Guillermo Del Toro, really. It’s definitely on my ‘to watch’-list, but with the abundance of films that come out each year, it always get pushed back and back and I never get around to it. I might have to change this now. Just because of this teaser. It looks great. It doesn’t give anything away from the story, nothing really. But the images look great. The appeal is definitely there. And with John Boyega (a bit more serious than we’re used) and apparently Scott Eastwood attached as well, this movie can’t be anything but great. If the story isn’t there, at least the images will look great and it will be a true spectacle. I can’t wait.

Wonder Woman #2 has been confirmed

Oh, she’ll be back

News_01It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody that, after the huge success Wonder Woman had at the box office, WB decided to make a sequel of it. It still hasn’t met all expectations, but her run isn’t over yet and I’m sure she’ll even surpass the sum Batman v Superman made. DC and Warner Bros finally found their way and it would be a total waste if they didn’t go further with this character. This news was nearly drowned under all the other amazing clips, trailers and news that was released at Comic Con, but for me it is an important one, so I wanted to add it in right here.

 

Justice League – Trailer

All In

This looks epic. After watching this trailer I’m left behind with jitters all over my body. The different action sequences look insane. The interactions between the characters are so interesting and funny. I’m a huge fan of Aquaman and The Flash, so I’m so happy to see they get their fair share of screentime and we get the first scenes underwater as well. I just hope they don’t go to dark with the story, but that they keep it a bit lighter that we’re used from DC. To be continued.

Ready Player One – Trailer

Finally we got images

This is another story, movie, event I’m hugely looking forward to. This seems amazing. I haven’t had the chance to read this book yet, but a lot of my friends have and they absolutely love it. When I heard Steven Spielberg would direct, my excitement for this movie rose and I have been eagerly waiting for a few snippets here and there. Off course they would release this trailer on Comic Con and I absolutely love it. I do get a bit of a Tron-vibe, but that is maybe because I don’t really know the story. I can’t wait to see this one and I’m sure it’s going to be an epic adventure.

Thor: Ragnarok – Trailer

The latest by our favourite God

I still have the feeling that I’m looking at a trailer for the next Guardians of the Galaxy. The way they use the music, the way they get a group of misfits together to overthrow a goddess in this case and save the world. I’ve been there and seen that. The only thing that does differ is the world their one. And Cate Blanchett looks just epic as Hela. Can’t wait to see her in all her forms and use her magic. I’m still very excited for this one, because Thor will forever hold a special place in my heart, but I do hope they didn’t lose too much of what him Thor.

Off course there has been so much more that has been released at Comic Con, but these are the ones that I am most excited about. What news or trailers were you excited to see or read about? What did I overlook? Let me know in the comments below and let’s discuss.

New Trailer Reviews (#3)

 

Tulip Fever

Tulip, Art and The Netherlands…

Being from Belgium, I’ve known a little bit about the history of the Netherlands and their beautiful flowers, the Tulips. Here, this movie will give us a combination of what they’re known for the best: Tulip and art. Now, this story does remind me a little bit of ‘The Girl With The Pearl Earring’, working with a similar story (painter falls in love with his subject). But with Alicia Vikander and Dane DeHaan, I can’t expect anything but greatness. These are highly talented actors and I can’t wait to see what they bring to the story.

Colossal

Anne Hathaway is a kickass Monster

Now this one seems interesting. Anne Hathaway gets her chance here to put her comedic talent to use in an action movie. It seems an interesting story, another twist to a genre overly present on screens nowadays. It seems dark and funny and I can’t wait to see what turn this story will take. I hope it doesn’t take itself too seriously or too funny, but that they easily find the perfect combination. This is a must-see for me.

The Defenders (Netflix)

Netflix Latest Marvel Story

I’m just not convinced. I’m not… You can say what you want, but they don’t seem an interesting match to me. The fun thing about the Avengers is that they are all so different and their differences make their combination interesting. Daredevil, Jessica Jonas, Luke Cage and the Iron Fist are all broody, dark people and I’m afraid they will all be mushed together. I’m just not sure about this one.

The Dark Tower

Another Stephen King Adaptation

Sometimes I get the feeling they don’t know what to film anymore. They keep picking up other stories that already have known success. This one seems  rather interesting, but I’m a bit scared that the trailer looks too good to be true. Knowing Stephen King and his Fantasy stories, there will be a lot of background and story you’ll have to know before understanding the entire world and I’m afraid the movie won’t be long enough to be explained logically. Either it will only be explaining the world to set everything up for the next film (if there is one). Or it will be more action and we’ll be guessing how the world works. I’ll definitely check this one out, but I’m not entirely sure whether I’ll see it in cinemas or at home. One thing I am excited about seeing is Matthew McConaghey as a bad guy. That must be so interesting.

Dunkirk

Christopher Nolan tackles a War story

This is one of my more anticipated movies of all time! Okay, of 2017. I mean Christopher Nolan who tackles the story of Dunkirk, what could go wrong. This can’t be any more than perfection. I can’t wait to see how he brings this story to life and if you look at the cast (except of Harry Styles, I mean, Euhm what the hell?) this movie will be brought to life by some amazing actors. I just… I can’t put my thoughts and emotions on paper, because I’m so excited! I’ll definitely check this one out in cinemas.

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

Star Wars News

New Trailer for Star Wars VIII + the Carrie Fisher Tribute

We’ve got a new trailer and it’s amazing. Watch it right now.

We get to see so much, yet the story isn’t unveiled. There is much to get from this trailer but it’s more in the sounds, then the actual images. We see Rey lifting up rocks, with Luke saying ‘Breath, just breath’. Will he be teaching her, like Yoda taught him? She’s on the island where we left them in Star Wars VII after all. 

It follows with images of the back of Princess Leia, a map of some sort, the broken mask of Kylo Ren, Finn in some sort of box or plane, Poe Dameron and BB8 under attack and some other epic images with the last sentence of Luke finishing it all: ‘It’s time for the Jedi to end.’ What does it all mean? Where is this story going to take us?  

It all looks epic and I can’t wait to go see it in cinemas and to explore this world even more. It will be bittersweet after losing one of its stars. 

The Star Wars celebration also gave us a beautiful Carrie Fisher Tribute.

I’ll be honest with you, I did cry a little bit watching this. It shows just how funny, beautiful and real she was. Carrie Fisher was one of the most talented actresses and writers out there and we lost a beautiful person. She was princess Leia and although all the difficulties she had in her life, she was always real and never ashamed of herself.

She was a perfect role model for all young women out there and a person I look up to a lot. I never had the opportunity to meet her, even though she was in Belgium a few years ago and I will always regret that.

I’ll always keep her strength in mind though when I’m faltering or feeling under the blue and I’ll give her values to my children. I’ll teach everyone around me what she taught me. It’s important we never forget to be strong women in this world, to be ourselves and to be as accepting as she was.

These movies teaches us important lessons while being entertaining as hell. And in this crazy world we need as much strength as we can get. 

May the Force be with you.
