Since we’re back on the writing train there are a fair number of trailers out there to catch up on. Too many really, so I’m just going to dive back in. Let’s do that now!
Trailers / Comments Off on Here’s The New Trailer for Suicide Squad
News / Comments Off on Jared Leto is The Joker In Suicide Squad
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.
Posters / Comments Off on Focus Poster: Will Smith and Margot Robbie Sharing The Blurriest Of Tender Moments
Here’s a poster for next years Will Smith / Margot Robbie team up Focus. It’s out of focus. I see what they did there.
Trailers / Comments Off on ‘Focus’ Trailer: Will Smith + Margot Robbie Pulling A Long Con
I love a good con movie. When they’re done right they’re the most engaging of whodunits because you never know who is doing exactly what to whom. Focus stars Will Smith as a con man who appears to take young, just starting out con woman played by Margot Robbie (of Wolf of Wall Street fame) under his wing.
Yeah, I’ll buy that. Let’s take a look.
If you’d asked me a few hours ago what I expected to write here I probably would have said something like “Well, After Earth looks like it might be cool but M. Night Shyamalan directed it so I’m worried it’s going to suck.”
To be fair, M. Night Shyamalan’s track record of late isn’t exactly stellar. Signs and Unbreakable were middling. Lady in the Water and The Village were terrible. The Last Airbender was atrocious. It seems that every subsequent film has gotten worse and worse. My fears were unfounded though because I thought that the movie would be bad because he’d throw in some ridiculous twist that would make me groan at having to sit through the movie to get to it. Turns out it’s bad just because it’s just a pretty straightforward bad movie.
Trailers / Comments Off on Trailer: After Earth Trailer #2
Trailer #2 for After Earth is better than the last trailer for After Earth.
I dunno, this might look spectacular but sicne I am aware that M. Night Shyamalan directed leaves me worried that it might suck.
We’re back after a hiatus and this week we’re talking about Las Vegas, E3 and how underwhelmed we are, The Walking Dead game, Black Mirror, Battleship and Men in Black 3!
