I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited to see a movie since Toy Story 2 came out when I was 7 years old.
The latest superhero movie to be released this year is Deadpool, starring Ryan Reynolds as the knife-wielding, kickass superhero dressed in his red bodysuit. And it’s in cinemas on FEBRUARY 10TH – that’s tomorrow!
Not only do fans of the comic seem excited due to the accuracy of the costume and Ryan’s promise of staying true to the comic’s character and story (unlike the Wolverine Origins film), but Deadpool also has a lot of other people eager to see the movie.
Well that’s because of the film’s clever, and most likely very costly, advertising and marketing.
You might have sobbed your heart out after seeing The Fault In Our Stars and its tragic love story, but the latest John Green film adaptation Paper Towns will have you celebrating a life spent with true friends and ultimately discovering a life filled with moments that truly make you feel like you’re alive.
Directed by Jake Schreier and starring Nat Wolff (of TFIOS) and Cara Delvingne (Paper Towns being one of a string of films she’s set to appear in the next 12 months), the film focuses on lovestruck Quentin (Wolff), his high school friends and the girl across the street/object of his affections/popular girl in school, Margo Roth Spiegelman (Delvingne).
Tris is fighting fit in the second film of the Divergent series, Insurgent (release date 20th March 2015). The first teaser trailer gives us a glimpse of what Tris looks like since the first film Divergent, which was released 20th March 2014.
With a new short haircut – taken from the second book of the series written by Veronica Roth – we see female protagonist Tris (Shailene Woodley) jump off buildings, hanging off ropes and running into a burning building to save her mother.
I applaud you, David Fincher. Yet again, Fincher has made a disturbing, thought-provoking and nail-biting movie. Packed with tension, lies and accusations, Gone Girl is truly remarkable.
Starring Ben Affleck as husband Nick Dunne and Rosamund Pike as doting wife Amy, the film is described as portraying ‘modern marriage’. If modern marriage is how it is in Gone Girl then I don’t want to get married any time soon! We’re shown Nick and Amy in their early relationship days; we see them first meet, their charming ways and their love for one another blossom. Their relationship seems like a fairytale, with the treasure hunts that Amy leaves for Nick acting as a sign of the endless fun that the two have together.
Nick is the voice of the present in the majority of the narrative, and we learn more about Amy’s character in scenes referred to in her diary. From her we see how they met, how they fell in love immediately and make it to their fifth wedding anniversary. But then we start to see the cracks show. Before Nick discovers his wife’s disappearance he’s sat in his bar (cleverly named “The Bar”) complaining to his sister of their anniversary tradition of treasure hunts, seemingly bored of his married life. Then Amy’s diary entries before her disappearance, which we see her writing and are shown each entry’s events, steadily become more worrying.
Last night I decided to make a hot chocolate, curl up and finally watch The Perks of Being A Wallflower. Apart from knowing it was an adaptation of a novel and starred Emma Watson, I wasn’t too sure what to expect.
What I got was a sweet, touching film that also weaves around and delves into deep, serious issues.
Ever since we were given the tiny snippet of the latest Hunger Games film through the Capitol’s TV broadcast way back in June 2014, I’ve been preventing these words from spilling out into a blog post. But I can’t wait any longer and we’ve gained so much more info since then that I can’t help but type these words: THE MOCKINGJAY IS NEARLY HERE AND IT LOOKS EPIC!
Prepare yourself for the return to the city of sin:
After analysing the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer and seemingly a little unsure as to whether or not I should put myself through the film’s release, it was great to finally watch a trailer that built up my excitement with each shot! Of course, I’m talking about the new 3 minute 23 second red band trailer of the second Sin City film – Sin City: A Dame To Kill For.
As I’m a fan of action, Noir and all films that cleverly execute special effects that take you to a whole new dimension, A Dame To Kill For definitely looks like a film to watch. Starring Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke and new additions Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and even Lady Gaga (who must have enjoyed her time shooting – equipped with a golden gun of course – with director Robert Rodriguez in his film Machete Kills), the trailer gives us not a snippet, but almost a starter course to get us prepared for the main meal!
