It has been three days since I saw Dunkirk and I cannot stop thinking about it. That alone should be enough to tell you that the movie is great and that you should see it, so if an affirmation that it is worth seeing is what you are looking for you can stop reading now. Let me say this clearly and concisely right up front: Dunkirk is Christopher Nolan’s best film to date and you should absolutely seek it out on the biggest screen you can find.
Spider-Man is now in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so naturally Sony is plowing ahead with the rights they have for related characters.
Have I mentioned that this movie looks batshit insane? Because this movie looks batshit insane.
I was already looking forward to this movie but this new trailer has kicked that up a notch. It looks like George Miller might be certifiably insane. The imagery here is stunning and shocking and balls to the wall weird and I, for one, love it. Stop what you’re doing and watch this trailer now.
As reported by io9, this casting finally ends the rumours as to who will play the collection of supervillains. Suicide Squad sees them forced to come together to carry out the government’s dirty work, so it could work really well. Some interesting casting choices there – I’ve no idea who Rick Flagg is but Tom Hardy is always good value, and Margot Robbie playing Harley Quinn is a fantastic choice. Also, my countdown timer for when Will Smith pulls out has started. However, it’s Jared Leto‘s takeover of the Joker role that will have the most focus. He certain has the intensity, but does he have the dark humour?
We’ll find out…in 2016.
Final request, though: CAN HOLLYWOOD PLEASE STOP CASTING JAI COURTNEY. IN ANYTHING. EVER. Ahem. Thanks.
120 behind the scenes shots from all three of Nolan’s Batman trilogy. Cool.
Holy shit this movie looks completely awesome.
Max Rockatansky is finally coming back for real this time and there’s a poster to mark the occasion. Which will be nearly a year from now.
I love movies where the protagonist is stuck inside a single location – from Die Hard‘s Nakatomi skyskraper to Speed‘s bus and Phone Booth‘s…phone booth, the sense of bucking claustraphobia is not only a fantastic storytelling device but also allows the lead actor to really flail those acting skills (or, like Keanu, be…confused).
Well, now there’s a new one to add to the list (along with Ryan Reynolds’ Buried, which I still haven’t seen). Locke is movie that places (our friend) Tom Hardy in a car for ninety minutes…and that’s it. Whatever unfolds, it seems like him exiting from the car soon becomes less and less of a choice. Let’s take a took at the trailer.
Remember The Trip? That film in which Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon travel together through Northern England ostensibly to do culinary reviews for a news paper but actually to just do a bunch of improvised comedy over food?
It was a funny, and surprisingly somber, movie which I rather liked. The trailer for it went crazy viral based on a scene in which they duel their Michael Caine impressions.
Now they’ve made a sequel, The Trip to Italy, and the first clip from it is, obviously, more dueling Michael Caine.
