Wilson Trailer

Directed by Craig Johnson and after watching the trailer, I had a good laugh. Wilson may prove to be very funny. The poster is not all that engaging because it just shows two men at a urinal, big deal.

The trailer is hopeful. Lauren Dern has proved to be quite the actress of late. The Fault in Our Stars and Wild she played a mother while in Wilson she plays and wife and an uncaring mom.

Woody Harrelson stars as Wilson, a lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged cynic who reunites with his estranged wife, played by Laura Dern, and gets a shot at happiness when he learns he has a teenage daughter, played by Isabella Amara, he has never met.  In his uniquely outrageous and slightly twisted way, he sets out to connect with her.

The movie is based on a graphic novel of the same name and expands the events of the book beyond its single-page graphic novel style vignettes. The characters are developed further by filling in the blanks, and the characters are flawed. With that, the movie might be worth a watch if you like funny making fun of people’s tragic lives.

Collide Trailer and Film Clips

Directed by Eran Creevy, Collide follows a young American couple who are plummeted into an adrenaline-pumping game of cat and mouse across Europe. They find themselves caught between two ruthless, feuding criminals.

The movie stars Nicholas Hoult, Oscar nominee Felicity Jones, Oscar winners Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley.

The wild and intricately folded, twisted story begins after a heist goes terribly wrong, Casey Stein, played by Hoult, finds himself on the run from a ruthless gang headed by mob boss Hagen, played by Hopkins. Now Casey has precious cargo that belongs to Hagen, who will stop at nothing to retrieve it. Left with no choice, Casey calls his former employer and drug smuggler Geran, played by Kingsley to protect his long-time girlfriend Juliette, played by Jones, before Hagen gets his hands on her. Casey sets out on an adrenaline-fueled car chase on the German highways to save the love of his life before it’s too late.

Another clip of the two stars together.

This is a great clip with Anthony Hopkins.

I think this is a great interview with the actors Nicolas Hoult and Felicity Jones.

New clip title You Want More.

New clip to go crazy over.

The intense film clip, enjoy.

After watching the trailer, I sense a twist in the story at the end. Don’t you?

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and based on Capcom’s hugely popular video game series comes the final movie from a pretty popular video game film franchise. The movie picks up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, Alice, played by Milla Jovovich, is the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead.

Now, she must return to where the nightmare began – The Hive in Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse.

The trailer is cheesy, but game fans will enjoy the show.

Lost in London Trailer

Directed by Woody Harrelson this unprecedented live feature film event, Lost in London LIVE, that he wrote and will also co-star with Owen Wilson and Willie Nelson, giving audiences the unique opportunity to watch a film shot in real time.

Loosely based on a crazy night full of real-life events, the movie follows Harrelson, playing himself, as he struggles to get home to his family. Run-ins with royalty, old friends, and the law all seem to conspire to keep Harrelson from succeeding.

“I’ve always loved theatre and film and wanted to find the best way to merge the two. When I decided to shoot this in real time I realized it wasn’t quite like true theatre because the one piece missing was a live audience. By broadcasting the film live as its being shot I hope to truly blend the excitement of live theater with the scale and scope of film,” said Harrelson.

I hope this film event is a success because I get a kick out of people pushing the envelope in an industry that is all too redundant with remakes and sequels.

The Space Between Us Trailer

Directed by Peter Chelsom, this interplanetary adventure, a space shuttle embarks on the first mission to colonize Mars, only to discover after takeoff that one of the astronauts is pregnant. Shortly after landing, she dies from complications while giving birth to the first human born on the red planet – never revealing who the father is.

But once his explorations begin, scientists discover that Gardner’s organs can’t withstand Earth’s atmosphere.
