Trailers of the Week: (all synopses are directly from IMDB.com)
- Starring: Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried, Rooney Mara, Levi Miller, Garret Hedlund and more.
- Releasing: July 17, 2015.
- Director: Joe Wright
- Synopsis: “The story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny — to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan.”
Thoughts: I am a Pan Fan. As you know, Hook is my favorite all-time movie. The story of Peter Pan has always been one I have enjoyed. Really looking forward to this one and I like the look of it: the colors, the cast the change-up of story…I am excited to see it.
- Starring: Jennifer Aniston, Anna Kendrick, William H. Macy, Sam Worthington and more.
- Releasing: 2015
- Director: Daniel Barnz
- Synopsis: “Claire initiates a dubious relationship with a widower while confronting fantastical hallucinations of his dead wife.”
Thoughts: Being touted as an Oscar-worthy performance by Jennifer Aniston, this drama looks full of intense performances, plus, it’s always nice to see Anna Kendrick! Aniston steps out of her usually archetype and steps into a role and genre that may pay off for her.
- Starring: Chris Pratt, Judy Greer, Ty Simpkins, Bryce Dallas-Howard, Vincent D’onofrio and more.
- Releasing: June 12, 2015
- Director: Colin Treverrow
- Synopsis: “Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park (1993), Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond.”
Thoughts: New dinosaurs, new cast, same excitement to see it! This first look at how some people just never learn from their dinosaur size mistakes has got me pumped. Smart inclusion of one of the most recognizable movie themes of all. I’m curious if composer Michael Giacchino (Star Trek) will have any memorable additions to this sequel’s presentation. I want my ticket already…to the theater for this one, I’ll skip on a ticket to the park. 🙂
- Starring: Elizabeth Banks, Anna Kendrick, Hailee Steinfeld, Rebel Wilson, Alexis Knapp and more.
- Releasing: May 15, 2015
- Director: Elizabeth Banks
- Synopsis: “Collegiate a cappella group the Barden Bellas enter into an international competition that no American team has ever won.”
Thoughts: I’ll admit, I was surprised to see Elizabeth Banks listed as the director. This is her debut as the solo director of a full-length feature and I am happy for her. What a choice! The Bellas are back and in a “You Just Got Served” style, the acappella battle begins and the Bellas look for an international win. Get ready for this exciting Sing Off Sequel.
- Starring: Asa Butterfield, Rafe Spall, Sally Hawkins, Jo Yang and more.
- Releasing: 2015
- Director: Morgan Matthews
- Synopsis: “A socially awkward teenage math prodigy finds new confidence and new friendships when he lands a spot on the British squad at the International Mathematics Olympiad.”
Thoughts: Asa Butterfield may one day do a different type of role than what he usually gets cast in, but for now this blue-eyed mild-mannered character works for him. I was actually intrigued by the story (most people can relate at some level) and the casting of Sally Hawkins who was great in last year’s Blue Jasmine.
- Starring: Michael Caine, Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Mark Prior and more.
- Releasing: February 13, 2015
- Director: Matthew Vaughn
- Synopsis: “Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn, Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.”
Thoughts: Some surprising cast members showed up in that trailer, huh? This one has had my attention for months. The references are out of control. 😀 This is a spy thriller that has seemingly, all the right elements. Don’t miss it.
- Starring: Patrick Stewart, Carla Gugino, Matthew Lillard and more.
- Releasing: January 14, 2015
- Director: Stephen Belber
- Synopsis: “As a Juilliard professor is interviewed by a woman and her husband for her dissertation on the history of dance in 1960’s New York, it becomes increasingly clear that there are ulterior motives to the couple’s visit.”
Thoughts: Patrick Stewart is one of those actors that could make a documentary about spitwads become an award-winning phenomenom. I’m not calling this movie a spitwad at all (don’t misunderstand). I am saying, however, that I’m not certain the film would capture the attention of half as many people if it didn’t have Stewart in the role. I’m glad that he is taking on roles outside of what he is most famous for and bringing performances with even more depth to the screen.
- Starring: Juno Temple, Carey Mulligan, Michael Sheen and more.
- Releasing: May 1, 2015.
- Director: Thomas Vinterberg
- Synopsis: “The story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching willfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba’s choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.”
Thoughts: Based on the 1874 Thomas Hardy novel and remade from the 1967 version comes this period drama romance starring a new cast. Not my cup of tea, but someone will undoubtedly appreciate it. Carey Mulligan is such a talented actress and I wish she would do more to expand her acting choices instead of doing the same. But this is a different type of film for Juno Temple.
