Chappie – trailer

By the looks of the trailer, Neill Blomkamp‘s (District 9, Elysium) forthcoming film, Chappie, is basically a 2015 remake of Short Circuit for adults. Maybe that’s a tad cruel as it does look pretty entertaining, but it certainly the first reference point I thought of about 30 seconds into the trailer.

The film stars Dev Patel, Sharlto Copley, Sigourney Weaver and Hugh Jackman, and Blomkamp‘s also made the interesting decision to cast Die Antwoord duo, Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er in support roles – which is either a cynical piece of crossover casting that’ll draw in fans of the groups’s shock-rap stylings, a lame idea that’ll backfire like the film efforts of Madonna or Prince or a truly inspired idea. Time will tell.

Chappie is released in UK and US cinemas on the 6th March next year – check out the trailer below:

Based on a loose idea to marry film star quotes with cartoon animals, here’s an old Jack Nicholson quote mixed with a cartoon raccoon…

Here’s one for all those Back To The Future trilogy fans who dared to dream – or the naysayers who said it would never happen. It’s not perfect but it’s still pretty mindblowing nonetheless – and who better to demo it’s wonderment, than the World’s most famous ever skateboarder, Tony Hawk – check out the video clip below:

St. Vincent – trailer

Bill Murray‘s one of my all-time favourite movie stars. He’s one of the few actors who’ll make me go and see a film just because he’s in it.

St. Vincent is his latest movie and it’s due in UK cinemas on the 5th December. Check out the trailer below:

David Cronenberg‘s latest film, Maps To The Stars is out in UK cinemas now. It’s kind of flown under the radar somewhat and reviews seem to have been mixed. Julianne Moore is usually a sign of quality though and I always enjoy a delve into Cronenberg‘s peculiar mind. Check out the trailer below:

Low Down – trailer

Posted in Film, Movies with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 25, 2014 by dc

Low Down follows the life of pianist Joe Albany from the perspective of his young daughter, as she watches him contend with his drug addiction during the 60s and ’70s jazz scene. It should be getting a release very soon after decent reviews earlier in the year on the film festival circuit. As yet though, there’s no official release date. Check out the trailer below:
