12 Strong (based on the book Horse Soldiers, a vastly superior title) is The Green Berets for today (that is not a compliment) – with Chris Hemsworth starring as John Wayne.
The new Tomb Raider trailer is filled with action and a lot of new footage. Plus, more Walton Goggins (the guy is everywhere!) – and archer Lara!
Tomb Raider opens on March 16th. The IMAX ticket will be worth it.
If the quality could be maintained, it would be lovely to open each new movie year with a Paddington movie
Paddington 2 brings the same sharpness of detail, sense of whimsy, and whiff of danger that made Paddington a global hit.
Anything Danny Ocean can do, Debbie Ocean can do better – and with a smaller crew.
Ocean’s 8 opens on June 8, 2018.
Earlier today, Warner Bros. dropped the final trailer for Justice League.
It still has the kind of ponderous feel of a Zack Snyder film, but is leavened with some very potent humor (personally, I’m going to see Justice League for Aquaman’s somewhat flip attitude and zest for battle, alongside The Flash’s geeky awe and enthusiasm).
Justice league opens on November 17th.
Officer K – a blade runner working out of LAPD – finishes an assignment and sets off a chain reaction that could be world altering.
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.
Denis Villeneuve presents a brief prologue to Blade Runner 2049 – giving us a bit of history in 2036: Nexus Dawn.
Blade Runner 2049 opens on October 6th.
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). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world.
When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.
The SDCC 2017 trailer for Ready Player One is unique. Enjoy.
Ready Player One opens on March 30, 2018.
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.
