Trailers of the Week:
1. The Monuments Men. Written by, directed by and starring George Clooney, this film may very well be the historical fiction lover’s dream. Based on a true series of events, follow special unit tasked with protecting the artifacts and art work from destruction by the Nazis in WWII. Also starring Matt Damon, John Goodman, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray Jean Dujardin and more, this one hits theaters on December 18.
2. Hercules: The Legend Begins. I am surprised that this first trailer for the next sword & sandal film about Hercules is relatively blood-less, especially in the fight scenes. SMH. This first of two Hercules films scheduled for 2014 stars Kellan Lutz as the half-god son of Zeus who must fight for life and love against all manner of evil and tyranny. (I had to write a compelling synopsis since the trailer itself does nothing for me until I see Liam McIntyre from Spartacus haha). I’ll just say that this comes out in March 2014, but I’m already more interested in Dwayne Johnson’s Hercules film in July.
3. The Spoils of Babylon. I have NO idea what this tv series is about but the trailer had tons of actors in it and shows multiple time periods I figured you might want to take a look. Perhaps it is a social commentary on the horrific appearance of bad wigs. Watch this trailer for the movie based on the novel of the same name and you decide. Starring Tobey Maquire, Kristen Wiig, Jessica Alba, Tim Robbins, Val Kilmer, Haley Joel Osment and more.Enjoy this latest trailer for this remake of a man who usually finds adventures in his imagination and ventures on one of epic proportions. Adventure and romance are only part of the goals in this film that stars Ben Stiller and Kristin Wigg. Look for it on Christmas Day.
4. Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (int’l trailer). This newest trailer for the upcoming Tom Clancy character film gives more action and more footage of what to expect from this action thriller starring Chris Pine, Kenneth Branagh, Kevin Costner and Keira Knightley. Recruit some friends to watch this with you on Christmas Day.
5. Non-Stop. There are rules in the movie universe that sometimes bad guys never quite understand. One of those rules: “Don’t mess with Liam Neeson!” ha. Check out this first trailer for this thriller high in the skies starring Neeson as an Air Marshal fighting against an unknown threat on a plane from a malicious source with further bad intentions yet to be revealed. Yeah, this comes out in February (the 28th) when a lot of bad movies do, but, it’s Neeson with Julianne Moore and Anson Mount. Give it a shot.
6. Belle. This time period drama tells the “true story” of a race, love, prejudice and personal struggles as a young mixed race woman is adopted into an aristocratic family and must constantly struggle through persistent reminders of the status quo…but she does not do so lying down. This film, with a strong female presence/lead, stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw (the tv show Touch) along with Matthew Goode, Tom Wilkinson, Sarah Gadon and more is releases on May 2, 2014.
7. Devil’s Due. Here’s another staple found footage horror movie for the beginning of next year that deals with a coming baby that may very well be the AntiChrist. I’m not a fan of these types of movies that rely mainly on shock-and-scare moments sprinkled with gore and possession, but whatever floats your boat. haha. This horror flick is scheduled to release on January 17.
8. The Grand Budapest Hotel. The latest from Wes Anderson stars Ralph Fiennes, Adrien Brody, Saoirse Ronan, Willem Dafoe, Ed Norton, Bill Murray, Tom Wilkinson and more. Follow the adventures of a hotel concierge and lobby attendee in classic Wes Anderson whimsical fashion.
