Trailer – Lights Out

Plot – A woman is haunted by a creature that only appears when the lights go out. A feature adaptation of the 2013 short film, “Lights Out” by David Sandberg.

Impressions – It’s really hard to take a 3 minute short film and stretch it to a full length 90 minute feature, the idea is a interesting one and the trailer has the spirit of the short so lets hope the full film turns out to be just as good.

Trailer – Deadpool

Plot – A former Special Forces operative turned mercenary is subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers and adopts the alter ego Deadpool.

Impression – Marvel finally attempting something a little bit different instead of the cookie cutter films that we have been getting over the last few years.

This is probably one of the only Marvel films i’m actually looking forward to seeing, the only other movie that has peeked my interest from the studio is Doctor Strange.

We will find out in 2016 if Deadpool turns out to be as entertaining as the trailer or as annoying as the character might get.

Tales of Halloween Trailer

tales of halloween

Cult filmmakers and familiar genre faces come together to bring you the ultimate Halloween film event with horror anthology TALES OF HALLOWEEN.

A suburban American town is terrorized by ghouls, aliens, and killers on one Halloween night.

With directors including Neil Marshall (The Descent), Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw 2,3 and 4), Luck McGee (The Woman) and more, this looks like a anthology horror movie that will have something for everyone.

They are really difficult to pull off as you know a few of the story’s will be pretty bad however if done right it can be entertaining enough to forgive it’s faults

Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice Comic Con Trailer

Synopsis – Fearing the actions of a god-like super hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Thoughts – No matter what i say or think this is going to put bums on seats when it’s released next March.

It’s two of the biggest superhero’s going toe-to-toe with each other, what more do you want.

Thank you to Warner Bros UK for giving us this fantastic trailer

Trailer: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, part 2

The first trailer for the conclusion to the Hunger Games series has been released, and it promises a rousing finale! May the odds be ever in your favour of seeing us at the cinema when The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is released on 19th November!

Trailer – The Martian

Plot – During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.

First Impressions – Ridley Scott hasn’t had a good time of late with his movies as Exodus, The Counselor and Prometheus failing to capture the brilliance of his early career, The Martian however looks like Scott is back on form.

By the looks of things it’s mixing the tension of Gravity and interstellar and if it can pull it off it might be one of the films to look forward too

Trailer – Ted 2

Newlywed couple Ted and Tami-Lynn want to have a baby, but in order to qualify to be a parent, Ted will have to prove he’s a person in a court of law.

Impressions – While Seth MacFarlane hit it out of the park with the first Ted film he stumbled with his follow up, A Million Ways to Die in the West, this however looks like MacFarlane back to his rude, crude and smutty ways.

Oh and the final joke in the trailer made me laugh like a little girl, more than any comedy has this year so far.

Trailer – Sinister 2

Sinister 2, the follow up to the 2012 horror hit, is in UK cinemas August 21, 2015. In the aftermath of the shocking events in Sinister, a protective mother (Shannyn Sossamon) and her 9-year-old twin sons find themselves in a rural house marked for death.

First Impressions: I really liked Sinister and this looks pretty much the same as before, which isn’t a bad thing, the only difference is that the director Ciaran Foy wants to show the evil Buhguul more.

*thanks to Entertainment one for the trailer

Trailer: Insidious Chapter 3

A prequel set before the haunting of the Lambert family that reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.

Impression – I initially didn’t like the second film in the series however after viewing it a second time i thought it was better than i originally thought, now with James Wan stepping away from the series and handing duties on to Leigh Whannell, the writter and one of the stars of the previous 2 films, the series looks likes it’s going back to it’s origins of being extremely creepy with hints of dark humor.  I’m now actually looking forward to the film which is set for a June 5th release date

Mad Max Fury Road Trailer

An apocalyptic story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and almost everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There’s Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa, a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.

 

The second trailer looks absolutely nuts, i wasn’t a fan of the first trailer as it made the film look very stagnant however in the second trailer it looks like the film is going 200MPH, we will see what the end product turns out like on May 15th
