► Trailers Vol. 003
I was a big fan of The Wolverine and thought it was a lot better than the general consensus seemed to be. I couldn’t be more excited for Logan. I never read the comic series Old Man Logan but this seems to be largely based around that and takes an entirely different approach to superhero movies in general.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - Teaser
I was a huge fan of the first Guardians film just like everyone else and this teaser trailer seems to hit all the right beats moving. I am worried, however, that they might try to do too much with this one.
I can’t say that I know much about writer/director Jim Jarmusch but from what I have read, it tends to be difficult to instill his films into a two minute trailer. Regardless of that fact, I still think there is a lot in this trailer that looks interesting and it could be a potential hit, at least critically.
Frank & Lola
This appears to be a captivating, and anxiety-filled movie. There is quite a lot going on and it has a thriller sensibility, at least in the way the trailer has portrayed it but I think there is a lot more going on than what is presented here which is always a good thing. This comes from another writer/director, but as opposed to Jim Jarmusch, this will be Matthew Ross’ debut feature film.
This film has a very silimar ascetic to Frank & Lola, at least based on the trailers. Written and directed by Tom Ford, yes, the designer, and apparently this is his second film after A Single Man, which seems like it actually got a fair amount of praise critically. Add in all of the great talent in this film and there might be something here.
Rules Don’t Apply
A movie centered around the eccentricities of Howard Hughes, starring writer/director Warren Beaty, with a star studded cast around him. It feels very much like a mix between Hail! Caesar and Saving Mr. Banks.
It must be a wonderful thing to be a part of the Coppola/Schwartzman family with all they have done in film and music. Dreamland is directed by Robert Schwartzman, and features his brother, Jason Schwartzman as a co-lead in the film. It’s yet another movie focused around relationships with a very old-timey feel. I’m really interested to see how this debut film compares to the rest of the family tree.
