You Shouldn’t Have Come Here Trailer: Tomb Raider!

With an Oscar®-winning lead and an Oscar®-winning director – Alicia Vikander and Graham Kin, respectively – you should probably expect a certain level of quality in Warner Bros. Pictures’ Tomb Raider.

The film’s first trailer suggests that young Lara Croft will be a force to be reckoned with – and Walton Goggins will be one helluva villain.

Tomb Raider opens on March 16, 2018.

SDCC 2017: Invigorating Justice League Trailer!

Warner Bros. Pictures unleashed (and that is the correct word) a new Justice League trailer at SDCC 2017 earlier today.

It sets up Steppenwolf as the villain (has the invasion from Apokalips begun?) and gives us a really good look at our heroes – Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash (Aquaman’s moment is particularly invigorating).

Also, more humor.

Justice League opens on November 17th.

In 2045 the world is  on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance).

The SDCC 2017 trailer for Ready Player One is unique. Enjoy.

Is it possible for a war movie top give you PTSD?

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, in IMAX, is a harrowing, edge of your seat thriller that practically drags you into the World War II evacuation of over 300,000 soldiers from the beach at Dunkirk.

Maddy Whittier lives in a house that, like the Mars biosphere training facility, is completely sealed off from the rest of the world – because Maddy has Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID), making her essentially allergic to almost everything.

When Olly Bright’s family moves in next door, he notices her looking out her window and is intrigued.

Based on the novel by Nicola Yoon, Everything Everything is a story of first love/coming of age/indomitable spirit.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Is a Kinetic Slog!

Guy Ritchie made his bones (so to speak) on hard-edged crime films with wicked humor and striking visuals. Then he went big budget with Sherlock Holmes and provided a very different (but surprisingly canonical) consulting detective. Next up was the criminally underrated The Man From U.N.C.L.E. – the best non-Bond Bond flick since the first Jason Bourne.

Now Ritchie is dissecting and reassembling the Arthur legend in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword – and it’s a very kinetic movie that is also, simultaneously, more than a bit of a slog.

Warner Bros. has released the final trailer for Wonder Woman and it’s chock full of new footage – more battles, a few more quips and a sense of just how epic the film is intended to be.

Additionally, the trailer includes a good deal more of Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor – showing that he’s more than just a DID (Dude in Distress). This is a guy who may not have superpowers, but is every bit as brave as Diana, Princess of Themyscira – and very good at his job.

Wonder Woman opens on June 2nd.

Going In Style – Grey Power!

Going in Style is the rare remake that is better than the original.

That’s because it creates a plausible (if not entirely believable) set of circumstances in which three octogenarians are forced to consider the unlikely remedy of robbing a bank – and are smart enough to do it.
