I, Tonya leads the new cinema releases and trailers February 23rd 2018

I, Tonya This week, there are THREE new films out for you to choose from: Margot Robbie and Alison Janney go head-to-head as the mother and daughter combo from hell in the true-life story, I, Tonya, Ruth Wilson returns to the fold after 15 years in Dark River, and there’s a group of old people getting together to find meaning to life in Finding Your Feet.

The trailer for this is full of plaudits whilst it attempts to look like an award-winning British movie, but for me, it’s not really hitting the mark for my interest. It’s possible I could be wrong, though.

Writer/Director: Clio Barnard
Also stars: Mark Stanley, Sean Bean

I, Tonya centres around competitive ice skater Tonya Harding, played by Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad), who rises among the ranks at the US Figure Skating Championships, but her future in the sport is thrown into doubt when her ex-husband intervenes.

With Ms Robbie in the lead role, I’m not an afficianaro of Ms Harding, to decide whether or not she’s a good likeness, but after seeing the teaser and now watching this Red Band Trailer, I’m really looking forward to it!

I, Tonya is released in the UK on February 16th, 2018, so presumably is trying for Oscars and BAFTAs.

Director: Craig Gillespie
Screenplay: Steven Rogers
Also Stars: Bobby Cannavale, Sebastian Stan, Mckenna Grace, Allison Janney, Julianne Nicholson, Bojana Novakovic

Hit or Miss? Verdict:

Easter 2018 – when is it in the UK?

Easter 2018
Easter 2018 is almost upon us, and everyone wants to bunk off work for a few days, and what better way to do that than with a four-day holiday?

As for when it occurs, it can happen at any time between March 22nd and April 25th, so occasionally clashes with my birthday.

Annihilation – New poster – Natalie Portman

Annihilation Annihilation has now had more info added to its characters, so while we know the film centres around a biologist (Natalie Portman, she was originally just known as The Biologist, like everyone else in the cast when it came to their profession (and it did seem quite a cool idea, originally, but it looks, now, like that info was just missing), and so as I type, IMDB is looking a little more filled out. Anyhoo, she signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition where the laws of nature don’t apply.

In an alien-style world and landscape, I was reminded of 2016’s Arrival, in terms of weirdness going on. However, I really enjoyed that, while writer/director Alex Garland’s Ex-Machina left me wanting.

This full trailer? While it does looks like Alien meets Jurassic Park, seeing this again, I am now really looking forward to this.

Annihilation has been put back from February 23rd to March 12th and will air on Netflix.

Director: Alex Garland
Screenplay: Alex Garland (based on the novel by Jeff VanderMeer)
Also stars: Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tessa Thompson, Oscar Isaac, Gina Rodriguez, Sonoya Mizuno, Benedict Wong, Tuva Novotny, Cosmo Jarvis

Movie Charts UK and US week ending February 18th 2018

Movie Charts UK and US week ending February 18th 2018This week’s Movie Charts UK and US week ending February 18th 2018 are as follows:

Which Movies Led To The Most Successful Games?

Which Movies Led To The Most Successful Games
Who doesn’t love a good movie? Everyone will have their personal preferences when it comes to the genre, but you could say that many of the classic films that have been released over the years are the types that engage a huge audience, not just a selection. Great movies often go on to inspire other areas too, especially if they’re extremely popular with viewers and successful at the box office, leading to successful games. What we have seen many times are video games that have been inspired by hit movies. So let’s take a look at a few of the best…

Goldeneye

Kingdom Come: Deliverance on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is the first game from Warhorse Studios, and who have stated that they have gone for a historically accurate and realistic depiction of 1400s Europe. You won’t find dragons, orcs, elves and giant spiders here – you have normal everyday people getting mixed up in the machinations of a false king and his conquest against the noblemen and leaders.

Lost In Space – found on Netflix from April 13th

Lost In Space
Lost In Space is entertainment that I only really encountered with the rather engaging 1998 movie starring William Hurt and Gary Oldman, and which would’ve spawned a sequel had there been the audience for it. These days, these sorts of worlds are better explored with a full series, and that’s what Netflix have done by commissioning exactly that, and this time, like the new Doctor in Doctor Who, Dr Smith is now played by a woman!

Doctor Who 2018 – The NEW Doctor Who Logo

Doctor Who 2018
Doctor Who 2018 indicates that new showrunner Chris Chibnall is making big changes with the new Doctor Who series with a brand new logo. I wonder what other changes he’s got in store, as this feels decidedly different.

Jodie Whittaker took over the role of The Doctor after Peter Capaldi hung up his sonic screwdriver on Christmas Day. I’m not 100% sure whether she’s the right decision for the part, but I know she’ll be a damn sight better than other contenders including Kris Marshall and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, from the godawful men-hating Fleabag.

The Housemaid on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Housemaid

The Housemaid centres around the fact that someone’s done a murder and bumped off Captain Sebastien Laurent (Jean-Michel Richaud), but with four members of staff at the French plantation, Sa-Cat, namely Mrs Han (Kim Xuan), Mrs Ngo (Phi Phung), Mr Chau (Kien An) and newcomer Linh (Kate Nhung) – the titular housemaid, the only likely culprit appears to be the ghost of Laurent’s dead wife, Madame Camille (Svitlana Kovalenko), who went mad and topped herself, and now is being blamed for every other odd thing going on at Sa-Cat…

Hmm… I can’t quite seeing BBC1’s Crimewatch buying that as a resolution to a case.
