This clip is amazing. I love the swimsuit.

This clip is intense, so I am guessing this is an action, science fiction movie. The bad guy is the spacecraft.

Cars 3 Official Teaser Trailer

Pixar and Disney are promoting everything will change from this moment and what that means is there is an accident on the racetrack. There is a dark car that seems sinister with the added promotion of a dark story.

All I can say is that I hope Pixar doesn’t disappoint us and keeps to the traditional Pixar style of great characters and awesome storyline.

Smurfs: The Lost Village Trailer

smufsvillageDirected by Kelly Asbury, in this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil wizard Gargamel does.  Embarking on a rollercoaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history.

The voice cast includes Demi Lovato, Rainn Wilson, Joe Manganiello, Jack McBrayer, Danny Pudi, and Mandy Patinkin.

This clip is kind of fun.

Miss Sloane

Directed by John Madden, in the high-stakes world of political power-brokers, Elizabeth Sloane, played by Jessica Chastain, is the most sought after and formidable lobbyist in D.C. Known equally for her cunning and her track record of success, she has always done whatever is required to win.

But when she takes on the most powerful opponent of her career, she finds that winning may come at too high a price.

Miss Sloane also stars Mark Strong, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alison Pill, Michael Stuhlbarg, Jake Lacy, David Wilson Barnes, Raoul Bhaneja, Chuck Shamata with Christine Baranski, Sam Waterston, and John Lithgow.

Kong: Skull Island Trailer

Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Kong: Skull Island is being touted as remaking the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure. I must admit how can a remake (or reimagining) be original. If it is original, then don’t call it a Kong movie.

In the film, a diverse team is brought together to explore an uncharted island in the Pacific, which is as beautiful as it is treacherous.  But as they venture deeper into the unknown, they are unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.

The movie stars Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, John Ortiz, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary and John C. Reilly.

The screenplay is by Dan Gilroy, who wrote on of the Bourne movies, and Max Borenstein, who wrote Godzilla, story by John Gatins and Dan Gilroy.

Patriots Day Teaser Trailer

Directed by Peter Berg, in the aftereffects of an undefinable act of terror, Police Sergeant Tommy Saunders, played by Mark Wahlberg joins gutsy survivors, first responders, and investigators in a race against the clock to hunt down the bombers before they attack again.

Interlacing together the stories of Special Agent Richard Deslauriers, played by Kevin Bacon, Police Commissioner Ed Davis, played by John Goodman, Sergeant Jeffrey Pugliese, played by J.K. Simmons and nurse Carol Saunders, played by Michelle Monaghan this primeval and constant chronicle captures the suspense of one of the most high-level manhunts in law enforcement history and the strength of the people of Boston.

It appears to be based on a true story, so that is enticing.  The cast is brilliant and guided by a true to the core director who also worked with Wahlberg on Deepwater Horizon.

Transformers: The Last Knight Trailers

Transformers: The Last Knight will be a summer movie and it looks like some cast members are returning. We are blessed with Anthony Hopkins this time around.

I love that line, “I am really glad I got in that car with you.” It is kind of cheesy, but fun. I would like to say that line to Walberg.

Here is the international trailer, and it offers more information about the storyline.

Online trailer looks pretty good.

Here is the Super Bowl Ad, pretty short and sweet, and there is at least one new face.

Sir Anthony Hopkins narrates the teaser trailer with great visuals.

Hidden Figures Official Trailer

I saw the first trailer in the movie theaters about two weeks ago and thought why hasn’t this story been told yet. It is priceless and needs telling.

Directed by Theodore Melfi, Hidden Figures is the inconceivable, not surprising, true story of Katherine G. Johnson, played by Taraji P. Henson, Dorothy Vaughan, played by Octavia Spencer, and Mary Jackson, played by Janelle Monáe. The movie follows brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history. That happens to be the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

The Little Prince Featurette

Directed by Mark Osborne, The Little Prince is a feature length animated film inspired by the French novella Le Petit Prince, first published in 1943 by poet, author, and aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. The novella is one of my daughter’s favorite books.

The movie uses four types of animation: hand drawn 2D animation, CG animation, paper cutout animation and stop-motion animation to bring this fable of friendship, love, loss and loneliness to life.

The Little Prince is voiced by Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Mackenzie Foy, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Albert Brooks, Benicio Del Toro, Ricky Gervais, Bud Cort, and Riley Osborne with Paul Giamatti. The Little Prince includes an original score and songs by Hans Zimmer and Richard Harvey featuring Camille.

I have to admit this trailer is so cute and sweet. Netflix is producing some notable movies, and I am a happy subscriber.
