Posted in Cinema, Film, Movie, Movies with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2019 by dc

Everywhere you look there are sequels, reboots and remakes on the cinematic horizon. The new Terminator Dark Fate sequel looks half decent though and the hype suggests it may put the whole franchise back on track after 2 or 3 duff films and the short lived TV series, The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Check out the freshly released featurette trailer (that’s just aired at the San Diego Comic-Con) below:

Hugely anticipated ‘Top Gun 2: Maverick’ trailer released

Posted in Cinema, Film, Movie, Movies with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2019 by dc

It’s a film I never thought would be made and one I’ve had zero desire to ever see, and yet there’s something weirdly intriguing about it’s very existence. Top Gun 2: Maverick is a weird sequel that’s been 33 years in the making and in many ways it epitomises pop culture’s ongoing fascination with 1980’s.

Truth is, the newly released trailer gives very little away about what to expect from the film, except the obvious fighter pilot plane porn and splashes of melodrama. Tom still looks strangely boyish though and the fighter plane stunts look beautiful. It can’t be any good though, can it? Check out the trailer below:

Top Gun 2: Maverick is expected to hit UK and US cinemas in July 2020.

Watch Jim Carrey as Jack Torrance in The Shining

Posted in Film, Movie, Movies, Technology, Viral with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 9, 2019 by dc

Ctrl Shift Face is becoming quite the YouTube celebrity with his Deep Fake reinterpretations of movie and TV show scenes. He’s been pumping out content for a couple of months now and the videos are pretty impressive demonstrations of where Deep Fake technology is currently at. It’s not perfect, but it is very odd (and a bit disturbing sometimes too).

Check out Ctrl Shift Face‘s latest Deep Fake movie mash-up with Jim Carrey as Jack Torrance in Stanley Kubrick‘s The Shining below:

All round nice guy and action movie super duuude, Keanu Reeves is being heavily linked with the Moon Knight role as the MCU looks set to line up it’s next batch of movies.

Moon Knight may be one of Marvel‘s lesser known heroes but I’ve been a fan ever since I came across the Bill Sienkiewicz illustrated comics in the late 80’s.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently revealed that they’ve been in continued talks with Keanu to join the MCU at some point in the near future. And earlier today, Bill Sienkiewicz tweeted his approval.

Of course there are other roles Keanu‘s also being linked to, including, Druig (from The Eternals), Kraven the Hunter (a baddie from countless comics including Spider-Man and Daredevil) and the Silver Surfer.

I’m hoping he ends up as Moon Knight. The MCU has been a bit predicatable and safe of late, despite its box office successes, and I’d love to see a few more slightly left field comic book adaptations see the light of day.

Timothy Spall and Vanessa Redgrave star in new biopic, Mrs Lowry & Son

First Turner, now LowryTimothy Spall is back as another world famous artist in Adrian Noble‘s new biopic, Mrs Lowry & Son.

Starring alongside Vanessa Redgrave as his mother, Spall plays L.S. Lowry, the Lancashire artist famous for painting scenes of industrial life in North West England in the mid-20th century.

The trailer looks beautiful, with sumptuous cinematography by Josep M. Civit and the kind of weight and gravitas you’d expect from an Adrian Noble film starring two truly iconic actors.

The film’s script is by Martyn Hesford, whose previous scripts include some great Dickens TV adaptations and the award winning Kenneth Williams TV biopic, Fantabulosa, so it’ll be interesting to see how his first foray into cinema fairs.

Check out the new trailer below – the film debuts at the Edinburgh International Film Festival later this month, before a release on the 30th August:
