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:

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:

Next month a brand new British horror film hits selected cinemas across the UK. DementaMania tells the tale of frustrated office worker, Edward Arkham, who’s life takes a turn for the worst when he’s is stung by a mysterious bug. The sting and resulting rash unlocks the door to a secret world inside his head causing nightmarish fantasies to manifest themselves within vivid hallucinations.

Billed as somewhere between the yuppie gruesomeness of American Psycho and the hallucinatory madness of Jacob’s Ladder, DementaMania is directed by Kit Ryan and gets released on the 17th October. Check out the trailer below:
