THE LITTLE HOURS Red Band Trailer

I came across this trailer will looking at other trailers. Well to be honest I feel down that movie trailer rabbit hole. But DAM I am glad I found this one.

Medieval nuns Alessandra, Fernanda, and Ginevra lead a simple life in their convent. Their days are spent chafing at monastic routine, spying on one another, and berating the estate’s day laborer. After a particularly vicious insult session drives the peasant away, Father Tommasso brings on newly hired hand Massetto, a virile young servant forced into hiding by his angry lord. Introduced to the sisters as a deaf-mute to discourage temptation, Massetto struggles to maintain his cover.

Death Note, Who Lives and Who Dies

This is an live action version of the Japanese Death Note  manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata. The story follows Light Yagami, a high school student who discovers a supernatural notebook from a Shinigami named Ryuk that grants its user the ability to kill anyone whose name and face he knows. The series centers around Light’s attempts to create and rule a world “cleansed of evil” as “God” using the notebook, and the efforts of a detective known as L to stop him.

I know very little of this series except that my son was a big fan of it. The clip below does peak my interest. But the real credit of this film will be him.

This Netflix original  version is directed by Adam Wingard (Blair Witch, You’re Next) and stars Nat Wolff (Paper Towns), Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers), Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out), Paul Nakauchi (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End), Shea Whigham (American Hustle) and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man).

FROM THE DESK OF SANDY WEXLER

Attention Future Hollywood Superstars,

So you think you got some chops, kid? You give ‘em the giggles down at the 4-H club, you make ‘em clap till their hands hurt at the local-yokel talent show. But do you have what it takes to crack the most exclusive client list in Tinseltown? That’s right; I am holding an open casting call for one amazing performer to join my all-star team at Wexler Management, which I humbly consider to be the world’s premiere collection of entertainment talent. The winner will be personally represented by me, show business legend Sandy Wexler, at a reduced commission rate (zippo).

You can also enter the contest by uploading your video on the Twitter or the Instagram using #SandyWexlerContest.

Quite frankly, this is the chance of a lifetime. As your manager, I’m not happy unless you’re happy. So what do you say we get happy together?

Finally The ‘Wolverine’ We Always Wanted

If you are to believe to all the reviews that have been out so far from the critics, Logan is finally the movie we have waiting for.  Logan won’t be out until March 3, 2017 but with the advance reviews Logan is presently holding a 96% score at Rotten Tomatoes.

logan-tv-spot-cb-fb
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

The film has been compared to a contemporary western. The film has been given a R-rating, thanks to Deadpool that showed a superhero movie with a R-rating can make a money and be a hit. The film is tracking to make $60 million on it’s opening weekend. According to Jackman this will be his final appearance as Wolverine a character that he has portrayed since he originated in 2000’s X-Men. There has been some rumors coming out that Hugh Jackman is having a hard time letting go of Logan. True or not it be nice to see him do it one more time. Hey Ryan think you can get him out for a quicky in ‘Deadpool 2’.

You can check to reviews here Variety and Heroic Hollywood

Logan also stars along with Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Dafne Deen, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Eriq LaSalle, Elizabeth Rodriguez.

Ghost In The Shell Trailer

Again one of movie trailers making a Super Bowl appearance is the movie adaption of ‘Ghost in the Shell’.  Based on the manga series of the same name written and illustrated by Masamune Shirow.  The first series was serialized in 1989. Ghost in the Shell is a story about a counter-cyberterrorist organization Public Security Section 9, led by Major Motoko Kusanagi. The story takes place in Japan in the mid-21 century.

A big controversy erupted with the casting of Scarlet Johansson in the lead role. To many it was another example of Hollywood’s white washing. Producer Steven Paul in a statement to Buzzfeed  back in June 30th, 2016, hope that fans will be “very, very happy” with the film.

I think everybody is going to end up being really happy with it. They’re going to be very, very happy with it when they see what we’ve actually done with it, and I don’t think anybody’s going to be disappointed.

I love Scarlet Johansson and she has proven over and over again that she can do action. I am hoping that the people over Marvel finally get off their ass and make a ‘Black Widow’ movie
