Love Beats Rhymes Trailer

Directed by RZA, Love Beats Rhymes follows a struggling rapper Coco, played by Azealia Banks. She enrolls in a poetry class and thinks her rhymes will impress her teacher, Professor Dixon, played by Jill Scott.

With a twist, Dixon challenges Coco to seek real meaning in her lyrics, setting her on a journey of discovery that takes her through rap clubs and poetry slams, and leading her to find her true voice.  She even finds true love. Lionsgate is calling this an uplifting movie with costars Lucien Laviscount and Common.

The movie looks grainy and unkept. An interesting look that might draw rap enthusiasts.

The Greatest Showman Poster and Trailers

Directed by Michael Gracey, The Greatest Showman, stars the all so talented cast starting with Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, and Zendaya, and featuring original songs by the Oscar Winning lyricists of La La Land, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

The trailer is so upbeat and promising. I know there will be no letdown at the box office or a disappointment in the movie theaters.

The story follows Jackman’s character Inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnum. The trailer shows off an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business while telling a magical story of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.

This trailer shows a more modern twist in the music. Interesting way, it might grab the attention of the younger audiences like teenagers.

Pitch Perfect 3 Trailer

Directed by  Trish Sie, the cast just keeps getting larger and larger with an impressive list of talent.

Now graduated from college and out in the real world where it takes more than a cappella to get by, the Bellas return in Pitch Perfect 3, the next chapter in the beloved series that has taken in more than $400 million at the global box office.

After the highs of winning the World Championships, the Bellas find themselves split apart and discovering there aren’t job prospects for making music with your mouth.  But when they get the chance to reunite for an overseas USO tour, this group of awesome nerds will come together to make some music, and some questionable decisions, one last time.

Song to Song Trailer and Film Clips

Directed by Terrence Malick, who brought of The Thin Red Line and Tree of Life, brings his filmmaking style in this modern love story set against the Austin, Texas music scene, two entangled couples—struggling songwriters Faye, played by Rooney Mara, and BV, played by Ryan Gosling, and music mogul Cook, played by Michael Fassbender, and the waitress whom he ensnares, played by Natalie Portman, —chase success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.

I am curious how this will play out with Malick’s style of artful and non-sequitur cut ways he uses to tell a deep and meaningful life of his characters.

The Andy Warhol styled poster is pretty cool and does convey a modern twist of Pop Art and its crazy, eschewed pop culture.
