Directed by José Padilha (Narcos, Elite Squad), 7 Days in Entebbe follows the inspired true events of the 1976 hijacking of an Air France flight en route from Tel Aviv to Paris.
Watching the trailer, I can sense the gripping terror of the passengers and those who attempted to rescue the hijack victims. The movie shows the most daring rescue mission ever attempted.
Written by Gregory Burke, who also wrote 71, a gripping film about Ireland’s Civil War, 7 Days in Entebbe unique and talent cast includes Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl), Daniel Brühl (The Zookeeper’s Wife), Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes), Ben Schnetzer, Lior Ashkenazi, and Denis Ménochet.
Directed by Arron Sorkin, Molly’s Game follows Molly Brown, played by Jessica Chastain, a true story of a beautiful, young, Olympic-class skier who ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons.
Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business giants and finally, unbeknown to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey, played by Idris Elba, who learned there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led people to believe.
Kevin Costner plays Larry Brown, Molly’s father, and Graham Greene plays the Judge Foxman with other talented actors like Michael Cera, Jeremy Strong, Chris O’Dowd, and Bill Camp.
The trailers show a great movie about a story that will unravel and bring to light the true meaning of honesty and be true to oneself.
The featurette has Arron Sorkin talking about the movie along with Jessica Chastain.
Directed by Brett Donowho, Acts of Violence follows three Midwestern brothers, a crime lord, played by Cole Hauser, and an incorruptible cop, played by Bruce Willis, are on a deadly collision course when the youngest brother’s fiancée is kidnapped by human traffickers.
The story is simple, they have to save her, the MacGregor boys call on their military training – and the strength of family – to fight the most important battle of their lives. Also, starring is Sophia Bush as Detective Brooke Baker.
I must have watched the trailer over ten times to count how many superheroes are in this movie. Infinity of superheroes is definitely the way to interpret the title.
Then, at the very end of the trailer, we see and hear Thor say, “Who are you guys?” I like the line better in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, “Who are those guys?”
The poster is slick but doesn’t say much. When the character posters come out it will be an epic download for all the fans.
The movie will be fun entertainment, and I look forward to seeing more trailers, clips, and sound bites.
Directed by Beth Lamure, Daisy Winters follows an eleven-year-old girl, played by Sterling Jerins. Her unconventional, yet deeply loving relationship with her mother becomes painfully broken.
Along with her journey, including her quest to discover her father, the courageous, resourceful and precocious Daisy learns about how to embrace every moment with determination and an unrelenting belief in herself.
The story pretty much covers everything – love, death, and the meaning of life.
The movie also stars Brooke Shields, Carrie Preston, and Iwan Rheon.
It’s about time! Incredibles is one of my favorite Pixar movies. I wonder if the movie will be able to hold its uniqueness because the first movie had a clever twist. Superheroes were against the law. It’s interesting how Pixar will simply insert a similarity to something treacherous that happened in our history as an incredible animated movie that appears innocuous.
The logo being altered by Jack-Jack is clever and is the handwriting on the wall that is telling us Incredibles 2 will be a great and entertaining movie. I am excited.
Titled Rising Son with the same talented voices Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) is left to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life, giving him an opportunity to bond with his younger son, Jack-Jack, whose superpowers are emerging—much to Dad’s surprise.
I can’t believe it, Brad Bird is returning to Pixar and directing this movie.
Directed by John Krasinski, A Quiet Place is a supernatural horror movie teaming up husband and wife, Krasinski and Emily Blunt. The movie also stars the Millicent Simmonds of Wonderstruck. The trailer is eerie but beautifully shot. The overall plot is being kept under wraps.
Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, Hotel Transylvania 3 follows Mavis who surprises Dracula with a family voyage on a luxury monster cruise ship so he can take a summer vacation from providing everyone else’s vacation at the hotel. Of course, the rest of Drac’s Pack cannot resist tagging along.
The monsters are all having a great time, indulging in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to colossus sized buffets and exotic excursions, but then the unexpected happens as Drac falls for the intriguing-yet-dangerous captain of the ship. Balancing family, friends and a budding romance might just be too much, even for the most powerful vampire.
The movie is filled with stellar voices by Adam Sandler (Dracula), Andy Samberg (Johnny), Selena Gomez (Mavis), Kevin James (Frank), Fran Drescher (Eunice), Steve Buscemi (Wayne), Molly Shannon (Wanda), David Spade (Griffin), Keegan-Michael Key (Murray) and Mel Brooks (Vlad).
Directed by Ava DuVernay, Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time is based on a wonderful and timeless book by Madeleine L’Engle. My daughter read her book with awe and excitement. The timeless classic came to the screen before in the 1980s. The technology at the time failed to bring the magical story to life.
Now, the audience will be able to view the dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.
The movie’s cast is stellar with Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Michael Pena, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Zack Galifianakis, and Chris Pine.
DuVernay is a woman of many firsts in the movie industry as a director and screenwriter. In 2012, she won Best Director for her second feature Middle of Nowhere at Sundance becoming the first African-American woman to win the award. For her work in Selma, she was the first black female director to be nominated for a Golden Globe Award and the first black female director to have her film nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. A Wrinkle in Time exceeds a budget of $100 million, making her the first black woman to direct a live-action film with a budget of that size.
The movie’s screenwriter, Jennifer Lee, is best known as the writer and director of the Disney’s Frozen, for which she earned an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
The second trailer shows more of the storyline. The CGI is pretty awesome looking. I just hope there are no pan shots of CGI.
The Party is a very British movie with a stellar cast. Here is the first trailer, and I am intrigued that it is in black and white.
