The Leisure Seeker Trailer and Clips

Directed and co-written by Italian Paolo Virzì, The Leisure Seeker follows a vintage recreational vehicle as John, played by Donald Sutherland and Ella Spencer, played by Helen Mirren take one last road trip from Boston to the Hemingway House in the Florida Keys.

The road trip movie is about John and Ella arriving at the Keys before his Alzheimer’s and her cancer can catch up with them.  The movie is based on a novel, so the story is rich and thought-provoking.


Winchester Trailer

Directed by the Spierig brothers, Winchester looks like a fancy horror story that is true. The movie follows Sarah Winchester, played by Oscar winner Helen Mirren, who lives on an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco where the most haunted house in the world is built. Sarah Winchester is the heiress to the Winchester fortune from the famous Winchester rifles, and she continues to build her house 24/7. A true mania that lasts for decades.

But Sarah is not building for herself, for her niece, played by Sarah Snook or for the troubled Doctor Eric Price, played by Jason Clarke, whom she has summoned to the house. She is building a prison, an asylum for hundreds of vengeful ghosts, and the most terrifying among them have a score to settle with the Winchesters.

The Winchester house is a well-known tourist attraction. Even though I live in Northern California, I have never visited this house but friends have told me about it, and I have seen the billboards around Interstate 80 promoting the Winchester House as a mysterious home, nothing about it being haunted.

The trailer shows a horror movie at its best. This will be a fun movie to watch, especially with Mirren in the starring role.


The Fate of the Furious Trailer

Directed by F. Gary Gray, The Fate of the Furious, begins where Dom and Letty are on their honeymoon and Brian and Mia have retired from the game—and the rest of the crew has been exonerated—the globetrotting team has found a semblance of a normal life. But when a mysterious woman, played by Charlize Theron, seduces Dom into the world of crime he can’t seem to escape and a betrayal of those closest to him, they will face trials that will test them as never before.

From the shores of Cuba and the streets of New York City to the icy plains off the arctic Barents Sea, our elite force will crisscross the globe to stop an anarchist from unleashing chaos on the world’s stage…and to bring home the man who made them a family.

This is quite a cast with Vin Diesel is joined by a returning all-star cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Elsa Pataky and Kurt Russell. In addition to Theron, the series welcomes newcomers Scott Eastwood and Helen Mirren.

Another awesome trailer that I like.
