Bumblebee - A mystical bond between man and machine

Bumblebee - A mystical bond between man and machine

In direct contrast to my post this week about struggling to care for the Westworldian robots, now I’m all over-excited at the thought of this Transformer’s spin-off featuring the one and only Bumblebee. Of course, part of that is because Haiz is in it, but equally, it’s hard not to love that big yellow beast, isn’t it? I wonder why I care more about the machine with headlights for shoulders than the one that looks and feels and is acted by a human being.

The Greatest Showman - I'm putting together a show

The Greatest Showman - I'm putting together a show

At first glance, this film looks like it pushes all the right buttons. A lonely man with a big idea fighting against all odds, some misfits who just want to be accepted, and… well, and Zac Efron. But all you need to remember from this trailer, and hopefully from the movie is this: No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else. Wisdom.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle - I, like, can't even with this place

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle - I, like, can't even with this place

Oh my stars. Unlike Baywatch, where I had all the expectations in the world and was a bit disappointed by the trailer, for Jumanji, I had nothing. When I rewatched the original for Film Watch, it wasn’t as good as I remembered, so why would this be any better? Well, the first trailer was released today and already, I am loving the look of this remake. I’m really hoping Karen Gillan’s character can keep up this level kick-ass (I mean, literally high-flying kicking someone off a motorcycle!

Battle of the Sexes - We want a little bit of what you've got

Battle of the Sexes - We want a little bit of what you've got

This looks AMAZING. One of the bonuses of this film is that there’s a documentary about this subject too, which is on my documentary to-watch list that never gets looked at. If they could just go ahead and dramatise all of them, I’d be able to cross a lot more off that list!

Kingsman 2 - I hope you're ready for what comes next

New trailer released for The Golden Circle, the sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service (which I can’t believe I watched two whole years ago!). I actually ended viewing this trailer with my mouth agape. The first film garnered a 5 out of 5 stars rave review from me, and this second one looks just as good. It’s also a great excuse to have to re-watch the first one again… just to make sure I haven’t forgotten anything.

That tale as old as time

That tale as old as time

Beauty and the Beast was never one of my favourite Disney films but with Emma Watson in the live action remake, I’m interested to see how it comes to the big screen. A teaser trailer was released this past week, with just a few glimpses of the lady in question, and no sign of the beast at all. I’m a bit concerned that this teaser doesn’t really do much to make it look live action, up until you see Emma’s lovely face.

Going above and beyond

Going above and beyond

A new trailer for the third installment of the Star Trek reboot was released recently and it looks quite a lot like the previous two! This time, however, it’s co-written by Simon Pegg and directed by Justin Lin, who played a big part in getting me hooked on the Fast and Furious franchise (something I’m still not totally over!) J.J. Abrams has had to hand over the baton to another director, busy as he has been with bringing Star Wars back to life, and that might make this third film an interesting proposition.

Hey Flash, wanna hear a joke?

Hey Flash, wanna hear a joke?

Zootopia looks like one of those films that is going to be almost unbearably cute. A world of animals of all shapes and sizes, all getting along? Hello! More than anything though, the films many trailers have opened my eyes to the world of sloths - who knew these creatures were so adorable? The way his face lights up at the joke… so… slowly. It’s amazing. Actually, it reminds me of a video tutorial I saw once about creating digital cartoons - how to manipulate the face to show sadness or happiness, and to go from one state to the other.

Merry Minionmas

Merry Minionmas

Despite this being an advert (although it’s for free popcorn so who can argue?), it’s worth sharing because the minions get all Christmassy and start singing carols. If you watched their last attempt at singing and were put off, understandably, then do give them a second chance. I’m so glad the minions have their own film coming out, although do wonder if they will be required to communicate better and thus lose just a little bit of their charm.

Crushed it

Crushed it

Pitch Perfect 2! A trailer! So much awesome! Fat Amy continues to steal the show, but I can’t wait to see the group back together. And bonus Hailee Steinfield who appears to be in every film ever these days.
