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 (#10)

Geostorm

The weather goes crazy

I don’t really know what sort of vibe I have to get from this trailer. The music gives the trailer and the movie a more fun vibe, a bit like Guardians of the Galaxy. But the story in itself is more serious, with a lot of action, destruction and terrible, terrible weather. The premise is interesting and there are a lot of different directions they can take us in. But I don’t really know what direction they want to go to from this trailer. I hope the second trailer will give us a better direction, but for now this is one my watchlist. But I will see this one at home when I don’t have anything else to see.

The Wall

Mesmerizing Thriller

This seems like such a great movie. If you lose the promotional sentences throughout the trailer, you get an intense story about two comrades in arms divided by a wall, trying to survive a sniper that just wants to chat. This seems like such an action-packed movie, with so many thrills and one that will keep my on the edge of my seat. I can’t wait to see where this story takes us and if the last movies of Doug Liman can be any indication at all (Edge of Tomorrow and Mr & Mrs. Smith), this movie will be beautifully shot and the action will be on point. A must-watch for me.

Darkest Hour

Churchill gets another film

This is another movie about Churchill and World War II. What I find interesting about this one is that they seem to not shy away from the darker side of Churchill. Is this the truth? Probably not, and we will never really know how he was during that time or what he was thinking. But what we do know is that he was a difficult man to live and work with. So this movie will be an interesting point of view and I’m especially looking forward to see how they will show this difficult relationship of Churchill with his wife, his secretaries, the outside world, the politicians. A must-watch for me.  

A Wrinkle in Time

The latest from Disney

I do not know the original material on which this movie is based and I do feel that this will put me in a disadvantage. This movie, this story looks big and if you don’t know the backstory, I think you might lose the essence of the story. I hope that Disney learned from Tomorrowland and that they will make this story accessible to anyone, even those you haven’t read the book, not really simplifying it, but making it understandable to everyone. For the rest, I do think the trailer looks good. It promises to be a story full of magic, colour and an overwhelmingly big and well known cast. Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, Zach Galifianakis… are all in this movie. I’m a bit hesitant, but I think I’ll have to see this one in cinemas, just to be able to see all the colours and the action and the magic fully… I’m excited to see the full trailer.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Behind The Scenes)

Star Wars VIII has wrapped

I know this isn’t a real trailer and we don’t see a lot about the story, but the few images we get to see, have gotten me so excited for this movie. There will be a lot of action, lightsaber fights, new creatures, new characters and the story will apparently, if we can believe the interview bits, take us into new grounds and give us a new sense of Star Wars. It’s a sequel, but feels like a standalone. I’m so excited and I can’t wait to see the real full trailer to see where they will take us next.

Blade Runner 2049

The Sequel that no-one saw coming

We finally get a glimpse of the story in this full trailer. And this is the trailer I have been waiting for. Blade Runner being one of my number one favourite Sci-Fi film, I hold it near to my heart so I’m anxiously waiting for this film. I already know, I’ll either love it or hate it. And it all depends on the story. Here we see Officer K (Ryan Gosling) looking for Rick (Harisson Ford) because he found something that might change the world and he needs Rick to help him… understand? To testify? The exact reason we don’t know, but I do think the teaser we got from the story is an interesting one. But the images look great as ever and the music was here so well incorporated, it got me excited for the actual soundtrack.

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

Olaf’s Frozen Adventure

Olaf is back !

This looks so sweet. After seeing the short film which was centered around Spring, now we get to see them at Christmas time. And this is my favourite holiday. December is my favourite month. Frozen is one of my favourites films. So I couldn’t be more excited. Especially because it’s linked to Coco, the newest Pixar Film. We will have new songs about Christmas and family. I mean, who wouldn’t be excited? I do hope they don’t milk the story too much. I’d rather see a full length second film really soon, then 10 little short films. Disney get at it.

Flatliners

Students go further than ever to get a rush

This movie started out looking like a movie about students and partying, but then took a turn for the worse. Actually for the better, because it seems like a really interesting movie with great actors, a lot of possible crazy plot points and amazing action scenes. The concept is actually so interesting and one that has been touched upon here and there, but not in a full-blown movie. I can’t wait to see what they do with it and how it’ll turn out. I hope it doesn’t get stuck in its seriousness about the afterlife, but that they focus on the thriller aspect of the movie.

Jungle

Daniel Radcliffe is stuck in the Jungle

What is it with movies lately, this is the second trailer where the story takes us a certain way at first, and then turns it completely around and goes the thriller route? It’s build the entirely same way as Flatliners. First giving us a more ‘Into the Wild’-vibe. Daniel Radcliffe is on a journey around the world, travelling, experiencing life as it comes, seeing beautiful new places. Then he meets someone who takes him and a few others into the jungle to explore and leaves them all behind and then shit happens. It does seem like a great movie, with a lot of action and suspense, but the way the trailer was built, just reminded me a lot of the other one. I’m not sure I’ll see this one in cinemas though. Depends a bit on the second trailer. I’m more into the sci-fi storyline of Flatliners.

Goodbye Christopher Robin

story of the creator of Winnie The Pooh

This seems like such a cute movie, a bit like Paddington. The images look great and from this first look it seems a perfect blend of cinematography and music. I’m excited to see how Margot Robbie’s British accent will be. But I’m mostly excited to see how they’ll tell the story. I hope it will be full of fantasy, really putting the stories they tell on our screens in combination with their actual story. Just a bit of a mix like with Big Fish. We’ll have to wait and see. But I’ll be sure to check this one in cinemas.  

Daddy’s Home 2

Meet the Fockers #2

I wasn’t really interested in the first film, but this one seems actually really funny. Plus, I must be honest, I’m a sucker for a good Christmas movie. It does remind me a lot of Meet the Fockers and Meet the Parents. But with Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell it will have it’s own type of humor. And I can’t wait to see Mel Gibson and John Lithgow clash. This will be one I will watch in the month of December, at home, and add to my pile of Christmas movies to get me excited for the holidays. I’m already in the mood for it. ^^

Home Again

Another Romantic Comedy with Reese Witherspoon

Now this second trailer has me a bit more excited for this film. The short sentence I read on IMDb, doesn’t really come over in the trailer though. I didn’t get the feeling they were moving in with her and her family, but I do think this will give a more interesting twist to the story and i can’t wait to see how it will turn out. I won’t go see it in cinemas, but I’ll pick it up when I want to watch a movie on a lazy night or for a fun girlsnight.

The Mountain Between Us

Idris Elba and Kate Winslet try to survive

I don’t really know what to think of this movie. It’s packed with star power. Idris Elba and Kate Winslet are both great actors with different awards behind their names and now they are acting together in a disaster movie. Do they want to attract award nominations and make a really serious movie about survival, or do they just want to make a good disaster movie, full of action, survival and suspense? I just don’t know and this bothers me a bit. Normally a trailer is more ‘open’ about the way they want to take this movie, but here I frankly don’t know. I prefer to know it before I watch a movie so I can put myself in the right mindset. Maybe trailer #2 will give me another perspective on this. I will watch it, but probably not in cinemas.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard

Funny and Action, I’m in

Now, this seems like a fun movie. With Ryan Reynolds as the bodyguard charged with protecting Samuel L. Jackson as the hitman, this movie has a lot going for it. Next to them we can also see Salma Hayek and so many others. It seems to has a nice plot, a lot of crazy action scenes and gives of a little bit of a Deadpool and Kingsman vibe. This will definitely be one I’ll be seeing in cinemas, just to experience it in all its glory on the big screen.

Murder on the Orient Express

A huge cast tackles this well-known tale

This was a trailer I waited so long for and it looks great! The huge cast they got together is just so impressive that I’m sure this film will be amazing. The cinematography looks great. The music seems on point. The graphics are perfect. It all seems so well put together and the tension is already real in the trailer. I can’t wait to see this great story turned to the big screen again with some of the biggest stars of the moment. November can’t be here quick enough.

Coco

The latest Pixar Movie

Yes, Pixar is back! And this seems like the cutest film ever. I already saw the teaser trailer, but here we get to see more of the story and the feel of the movie; At first sight, it does remind me a bit of ‘The Book of Life’, but I hope the story takes us a totally different way. I think they will focus more on family and the differences between their worlds. The images and graphics look great, as per usual with a Pixar movie and I’m sure it will hit us right in the heart. Definitely one I will watch in cinemas.

Black Panther

Damn

I like where Marvel is heading with this one. I watched it three-four times in a row just to be sure that I catched up on all the little details. Because, wauw. The way they blend African culture with the modern world is amazing. The action scenes look mindblowing. The costumes are ridiculously gorgeous and the story will be, in my opinion, one of the more interesting ones in the Marvel universe. Only negative point is that we’ll have to wait until February of next year until we can see it.

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

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?

Trailer Review – Wonder Woman

This June, witness the future of justice

The new trailer for the 2017 Wonder Woman is out and gave us a little sneak peak of what is to come. You can see it right here.

I’m not a huge fan of DC Comics, I’m more of a Marvel girl myself, but I did enjoy The Dark Knight series by Christopher Nolan. I’ve always been a huge fan of his, but here I thought he made these stories really his and left his mark on the superhero genre. So when Ben Affleck came as the new Batman and they made an entire new series with this character, I was hugely sceptical. And honestly I haven’t seen the latest one, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and I heard this wasn’t the best story out there. This is the movie though where Wonder Woman is first introduced. I am highly anticipating her Origin story though.

Wonder Woman_01

Wonder Woman has in my mind always been one of the strongest female superheroes out there and one I always looked up to. I’m especially interested in this one, because next to being an Origin story, they’re also making it a war film. And we’re going to get the entire story, from when she first arrived on the island of Themyscira, until she leaves to fight in WWI.

Wonder Woman_02

Judging by this trailer, the production design will be sick. They pulled all the stops out. The images look great. The costumes are fierce and all the Amazons look magnificent. The action scenes are breathtaking. And this is only the trailer. Can you feel how excited I am? Gal Gadot is also remarkable as Wonder Woman and I can’t wait to see what she brings to the character. Costume- and look-wise she’s Wonder Woman incarnated and I can’t wait to see her on the big screen in her own movie, the first superhero movie focused on a female character.

Wonder Woman_03.jpg

One thing I want to touch upon, but only a tiny little bit, is the shaved armpits. Why did this blow up so much? Yes, they didn’t have any ads that showed them beauty and the rules they have to follow, but women have been following specific rules long before advertisements ever became a thing. Women always had to look beautiful and different then men, so my question to you is why couldn’t there be any rules on their island? Why couldn’t there be any rules (not touched upon in this trailer, movie or in the comics) regarding beauty? They braid their hair, they wear specific type of clothes that facilitate their fighting. So why couldn’t there be any rules about this? Would I have preferred that she had some armpit hair? Yes. But does it bother me she doesn’t? Not at all. And I’m sure it won’t take away from my pleasure seeing this movie. I’m just glad there’s finally a female superhero movie.  

This is one of the superhero movies that I’m most looking forward to this year and I can’t wait until it comes out in theatres on June 1st.
