47 Meters Down Trailer and Clips

Directed by Johannes Roberts, we meet Lisa, played by Mandy Moore, on the rebound after a devastating break-up. She is ready for adventure while on vacation in Mexico. Even still, she needs a little extra persuasion when her daring sister Kate, played by Claire Holt, suggests they go shark diving with some locals.

Stranger Things star Matthew Modine also stars as one of the locals. He plays the causal intensity so nicely and wickedly.

The trailer is pretty intense and a great way to gobble up popcorn.

Once underwater in a protective cage, Lisa and Kate catch a once in a lifetime, face-to-face look at majestic Great Whites. But when their worst fears are realized and the cage breaks away from their boat, they find themselves plummeting to the bottom of the seabed, too deep to radio for help without making themselves vulnerable to the savage sharks, their oxygen supplies rapidly dwindling. 47 Meters Down is a terrifying tale of survival set in the domain of the ocean’s fiercest creatures.

Here is the second trailer, “I am so scared!” is kind of a cheesy line because who wouldn’t be scared. The line is redundant and the director should just let the actress act scared. No words are needed for this horrific setup.

Here are some clips from the movie. Yikes!

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Trailers

I wanted to post both the green and red trailers, but the red one is blocked for now. I will post it as soon as the production company allows me to do so.

With that, Kingsman: The Golden Circle looks like a fun movie with enough wry humor to keep the edge off of another superhero movie.

I am curious about Sir Elton John’s appearance in the movie as well. I hope he has enough screen time to make the viewing worthwhile.

Directed by Matthew Vaughn, who directed the last Kingsman, the trailer pretty much tells the story as we follow a young protege becomes a part of the independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe.

In Kingsman: The Golden Circle,  our heroes, played by a stellar cast of Oscar winners, face a new challenge. When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both established. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for

The trailer shows the usual green screen effects claiming a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world.

There are two green trailers but both are different.

American Assassin Trailer and Clips

Directed by Michael Cuesta, American Assassin stars Dylan O’Brien, who is known for starring in MTV’s Teenwolf and Maze Runner movies.  The story follows black ops recruit Mitch Rapp, played by O’Brien, is reeling from the death of his fiancée in a terrorist attack when he is assigned to shadowy CIA figure Stan Hurley, played by Michael Keaton, to receive special training in tracking terrorists.

Rapp and Hurley are then dispatched to join a Turkish agent on a mission to stop a mysterious operative from unleashing chaos of international proportions.

Michael Cuesta is directing his first major box office movie. He is best known for directing and producing the TV series Homeland and independent films such as L.I.E. and Kill the Messenger.

The Blu-ray and DVD are on the streets, so enjoy these clips.

The trailer looks good and the movie is promising. I will be taking my teenage daughter to see it the first weekend it opens.

Mitch Rapp character is in 16 books written by Vince Flynn, so O’Brien’s career is looking mighty fine and flourishing.

Here is the Redband trailer, fantastic.

Here is the Greenband trailer, enjoy!

Tommy’s Honour Trailer and Clips

Directed by Jason Connery, golf lovers will enjoy this movie, and they probably have heard of this true story.  Tom and Tommy Morris, father and son pioneers of professional golf, relied on skill, business acumen, and working-class street smarts to make Tommy one of the world’s first sports superstars and found the modern game of golf.

Jack Lowden looks grand in this movie along with Sam O’Neill and Peter Mullan.

Detroit Trailers

A compelling and driven story about a time that will never be forgotten but is this movie about the true story.

From the Academy Award-winning director of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, Detroit tells the gripping story of one of the darkest moments during the civil unrest that rocked Detroit in the summer of 1967.

 

 

 

This trailer is so good, and I hope the movie is just as good.

This movie tells a story that the country needs to know. It is the truth and dramatized for the silver screen.  The more I see images and videos of this story I am in shock and amazed at the brutality of this era.

Bigelow is a fine filmmaker and knows how to tell a true story to move the audience.

American History teachers need to encourage their students to see this movie. This incident really happened in our country.

All Eyez On Me Trailer

Directed by Benny Boom, All Eyez On Me follows the true, untold story of a prolific rapper, actor, poet and activist Tupac Shakur. The movie begins with Shakur from his early days in New York City to his evolution into being a successful and well-known rapper before his untimely death at the age of 25.  Shakur odds were against him, but raw talent, powerful lyrics, and revolutionary mindset propelled him into becoming a cultural idol with a legacy that continues to grow after his passing.

The trailer looks good, but as most trailers do, it tells the whole story of the movie. Shipp should do look like Shakur, and I am impressed.

The Zookeeper’s Wife Trailer and Clips

Directed by Niki Caro, The Zookeeper’s Wife stars Jessica Chastain as Antonina and her husband, Dr. Jan Żabiński, played by Johan Heldenbergh. They are the keepers of the Warsaw Zoo, one of the largest and most prolific zoos in 1930s Europe.

In 1939, Antonina opens the gates of the zoo as a crowd has already gathered to view the many species on display in the zoo. Her husband Jan has recently been appointed the director of the Warsaw Zoo and faces the scornful, yet envious advances of Dr. Lutz Heck, played by Daniel Brühl, the head of the Berlin Zoo as “Hitler’s zoologist”.

Shortly, Antonina and her son Ryszard, played by Timothy Radford and later, Val Maloku, are shocked to witness the aerial bombardment of Warsaw as German forces storm Poland. The Zoo is not to be spared and bombs destroy the cages and kill many of the animals. As Polish resistance collapses under overwhelming odds, Dr. Heck arrives at the zoo, beseeching Antonia to let him save the “prize” specimens, which she reluctantly grants, but then learns that his motives are suspect.

Warsaw becomes the scene of a monstrous upheaval with Jews first identified and their stores and shops looted.  Jan and his wife decide to help a Jewish friend hide for the Nazis. The Zabrinskis devise an elaborate plan to spirit away Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto, even as it is being devastated by a relentless, murderous Nazi juggernaut. Snatching children and adults from the ghetto, over 300 “guests” inhabit the Zabrinski’s home on their way to freedom, with new identification papers and sometimes, even a wig and a makeover to fool the Nazis.

Watching Chastain in the trailers and clips shows so much talent. She is so talented and from my hometown.
