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.

Dressed Like A Bat. I Dig It! Trailer: Justice League!

The loooonnnnng awaited Justice League trailer is here.

It’s moody and Zack Snyder ponderous, but with some actual humor and wit. Combined with the previously released Comic-Con footage and it could be very interesting – maybe even really good.

There’s also a new poster.

Justice League opens on November 17th.

Matt Reeves has signed on the dotted line and will direct the next standalone Batman film, The Batman, starring Ben Affleck.

It’s an excellent choice as Reeves can handle horror-suspense (Let Me In), and big budget action-adventure (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes).

Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword looks to be a huge reimagining of the Arthurian myth – on a scale with John Boorman’s exquisite Excalibur, but considerably less shiny.

The new trailer for  King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is set against an immediately recognizable Led Zeppelin tune. The result is pretty impressive.

Bear In Mind This Isn’t The Red Band Trailer Trailer: CHiPs!

When I first heard that Warner Bros. was turning CHiPs into an action-comedy movie I was a bit leery – but then it occurred to me that they might turn it into a 21 Jump Street kind of update.

The first trailer premiered last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live and it seems like that’s what’s happened. Now I’m not so sure it was a good idea. I laughed at the trailer, but not nearly as much as I was expecting to.

CHiPs stars Dax Shepard and Michael Peña as Officers Jon Baker and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello. It opens on March 24th. The trailer follows the jump.

Collateral Beauty – I Hated This Movie!

Collateral Beauty is a story about grief, recovery and redemption – themes also found in Kenneth Lonergan’s brilliant Manchester By Sea. It angered me because it appeared to be an entirely different movie than the one suggested by the trailers – and by being a remarkably treacly film on its own merits.
