Michael Fassbender The Snowman trailer

The Snowman
Director: Tomas Alfredson
Screenwriter: Hossein Amini, Peter Straughan
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Val Kilmer, Toby Jones, David Dencik, James D’Arcy, J.K. Simmons
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated R | 119 Minutes
Release Date: October 20, 2017

A good mystery thriller has us on the edge of our seats and has us convinced we know who the criminal is at some point in the movie only to realize it wasn’t who we thought it was. It builds upon itself with great characters giving more than terrific performances. And it has a story that keeps us engaged for the entire duration.

But Tomas Alfredson‘s adaptation of Jo Nesbø‘s The Snowman is anything but the aforementioned qualities. It is sporadic, horribly paced, and lacks any sort of structure. Instead, we are given a fairly predictable film that feels like it was just piled on top of each other trying to pass itself off as a decent movie. My full review below.

Dunkirk trailer header

While Christopher Nolan has stepped away from the superhero genre for quite some time, he’s still in the business of large-scale epic films. The Interstellar director will be taking audiences to the past by revisiting one of the most critical events in World War II. Dunkirk is based on the real-life aftermath of the Battle of Dunkirk, which saw the Allied Forces (Britain, Belgium, Canada, and France) suffering a major blow to their military force and then stranded on the French coast. With the German army surrounding them, the Allied Forces execute Operation Dynamo, which helped evacuate the stranded soldiers in what is considered one of the most successful rescue missions of the war.

Check out the newest trailer for the film here below.

Dunkirk trailer header

In the past few years, Christopher Nolan has given us a taste for superhero theatrics in the Dark Knight trilogy, taken us to the various levels of dreams in Inception, and traveled through space and time in Interstellar. But his next feature is a bit more grounded in reality; in fact, it draws a bit from history.

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Dunkirk, a film that follows the events of the British military operation that helped save the lives of 330,000 soldiers while on the shores of French seaport of Dunkirk. Check out the trailer below.

Marvel Agents Of Shield Poster

This year’s New York Comic-Con brought a highly anticipated panel for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In addition to a surprise appearance from a cast member, there was also a special screening. Head of Marvel Television Jeph Loeb began the panel by reminding the audience of how far Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has come.

“As many of you remember, we were in a much smaller hall when we first announced that we would have our first live-action television series,” he said.

Then, much to the audience’s shock, Loeb went on to say, “Anybody can be Hydra,” as he opened his jacket to reveal a HYDRA logo on a t-shirt underneath.

Hitchcock Header

Production for any film will have its fair share of problems on the set. The new Sacha Gervasi-directed drama Hitchcock will shed light on the kinds of problems that Alfred Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins) experienced on and off the set of his greatest thriller Psycho.

Check out the first trailer for the film here below.

This latest biopic only covers the period of time in which Hitchcock was trying to get Psycho from development to production to full release. There are many conflicts that stand in Hitchcock’s way. People believe he is past his prime, there are production issues on set, and his romanced interest Alma Reville (Helen Mirren) believes she is being overshadowed by Hitchcock’s greatness. Scarlett Johansson will play Janet Leigh, while Danny Huston, Toni Collette, Jessica Biel, Michael Stuhlbarg, and James D’Arcy provide supporting roles.

Cloud Atlas Header

A slew of new promotional material for Cloud Atlas is hitting the marketing wire, and it does a great job of showing the ambitious scope of The Wachowskis’ latest film. The project is difficult to describe largely because it features a large cast playing as multiple characters cross various time periods. In the film these actors play a variety of roles, some which requires the actor to play something outside of their own race, age, and even sexuality. Now seven promotional banners put these roles and time periods up on display. Check out the seven new banners, plus two tv spots here below.

There has been positive buzz circling around Cloud Atlas since it made its official debut at the Toronto International Film Festival. Critics have praised The Wachowskis (Andy and Lana) and Tom Twyker for creating a movie that is not limited to one genre. Others have praised the make-up used to change the actors’ appearances.
