The BBC have released a trailer for the upcoming series 10 of Doctor Who. I have to say, the trailer looks impressive. Peter Capaldi and Pearl Mackie seem to have great chemistry, it reminds me of The Doctor and Ace dynamic. I’m optimistic for the series a head.
Warner Bros. have released the first trailer for the new Ben Affleck film, Live By Night, which he both directed and stars in (as far as I know, he hasn’t written the theme tune. Doo-doo-doo).
Let’s be frank, the film looks awesome! It’s based on the 2012 novel by Dennis Lehane. It also stars Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller, Zoe Saldana, Chris Messina, and Chris Cooper.
Here’s the synopsis:
Boston, 1926. The ’20s are roaring. Liquor is flowing, bullets are flying, and one man sets out to make his mark on the world.
Prohibition has given rise to an endless network of underground distilleries, speakeasies, gangsters, and corrupt cops. Joe Coughlin, the youngest son of a prominent Boston police captain, has long since turned his back on his strict and proper upbringing. Now having graduated from a childhood of petty theft to a career in the pay of the city’s most fearsome mobsters, Joe enjoys the spoils, thrills, and notoriety of being an outlaw.
But life on the dark side carries a heavy price. In a time when ruthless men of ambition, armed with cash, illegal booze, and guns, battle for control, no one—neither family nor friend, enemy nor lover—can be trusted. Beyond money and power, even the threat of prison, one fate seems most likely for men like Joe: an early death. But until that day, he and his friends are determined to live life to the hilt.
Joe embarks on a dizzying journey up the ladder of organized crime that takes him from the flash of Jazz Age Boston to the sensual shimmer of Tampa’s Latin Quarter to the sizzling streets of Cuba. Live by Night is a riveting epic layered with a diverse cast of loyal friends and callous enemies, tough rumrunners and sultry femmes fatales, Bible-quoting evangelists and cruel Klansmen, all battling for survival and their piece of the American dream. At once a sweeping love story and a compelling saga of revenge, it is a spellbinding tour de force of betrayal and redemption, music and murder, that brings fully to life a bygone era when sin was cause for celebration and vice was a national virtue.
San Diego comic con is now in full swing and, every studio is showcasing their projects. CBS have released the teaser trailer for Star Trek: Discovery, the TV series from Bryan Fuller that will air on CBS All Access, in the US and on Netflix in the rest of the world, next year. There’s still no news on casting, but speculation is that the new ship will feature a female Captain.
Bryan Fuller confirmed that the series will be told, much like a novel and not the traditional episodic structure.
It’s no secret that Batman v Superman received mixed reviews from critics and fans alike, but today the studio used its Comic-Con panel to pull out the big guns. First, we got a look at the awesome Wonder Woman trailer. Then another trailer for suicide squad. Then, they gave us some footage from The Justice League.
It certainly seems that the over all time has been lightened, I can only attribute that to Affleck’s increased creative control.
Below are two new clips for Finding Dory, the long-awaited sequel to 2003’s Finding Nemo.
In Finding Nemo, a clown fish named Marlin (Albert Brooks), paired up with forgettful-Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) to find his missing son, Nemo (Alexander Gould). The new film is set a few months after the events of the first, and sees Dory on a mission to find her long-lost family.
When Finding Nemo was released in 2003, it became Pixar’s highest grossing hit, making over $900 million at the world wide box office.
Finding Dory is released in UK cinemas on July 29 2016.
