Brad’s Status – Trailer 1 – Ben Stiller

Brad's Status Brad’s Status stars Ben Stiller as Brad Sloan… or any other Ben Stiller movie, since he never changes.

Here, he’s a father to a son Troy (Austin Abrams), who’s checking out colleges on the East Coast, but along the way he meets up with old friends, including Craig Fisher (Michael Sheen) and Jason Hatfield (Luke Wilson), who’ve all done far better than him and, thus, make him feel inferior about his life’s choices.

The ‘status’ side of it comes from everyone updating Facebook, telling the world how wonderful their lives are.

Brad’s Status… er… updates (sigh) on September 15th in the US, but as of yet, there’s no UK date. Hopefully, it’ll be updated to ‘cancelled’, since it looks quite dull. That said, it’s an Amazon movie, so it’ll most likely be simultaneously available everywhere.

Then again, writer/director Mike White also made the brilliant 2002 Jennifer Aniston comedy drama, The Good Girl, so I’m conflicted…

Also stars: Jenna Fischer, Jemaine Clement, Shazi Raja, Luisa Lee

Against The Law – The DVDfever Review – Daniel Mays

Against The Law

Against the Law centres around as Peter Wildeblood (Daniel Mays) in a drama based on his autobiography, and as part of BBC’s Gay Britannia season, about how it’s 50 years this year since it was rightly legalised to be homosexual. However, what I did learn from this drama, is that the law could’ve been put in place so many years earlier, and that Peter was the catalyst for this, as he was one of the first in this country to declare in public that he was gay.

Micro Machines: World Series on Xbox One – The DVDfever Review

Micro Machines: World Series

Micro Machines: World Series comes after a long wait since the PS1 MM game, and is back after a lot of fans waited in hope for the franchise to return. Developed again by Codemasters, does the game bring back what the fans have long waited for? No need to stand on ceremony – in short, no. In long… nooooooooo.

Gameplay is s probably the only part I can say anything positive about. At least it’s solid with fun driving and usage of weapons depending on which vehicle and weapon add-on you’ve equipped. Plus, you can unlock more add-ons for your desired vehicle including weapons, paint jobs or vehicle variants.

Free Fire on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Free Fire

Free Fire has a simple premise – an arms deal goes wrong. Tetchy people with itchy trigger fingers lead to guns being shot when it really wasn’t necessary, as everything was almost about to go smoothly, despite gun dealer Vernon (District 9‘s Sharlto Copley) supplying the wrong type of weapon.

Set in 1970s Boston (but filmed in Brighton!), the men and woman – yes, a sole female in Justine (Room‘s Brie Larson) – meet up just outside a warehouse and go in to seal the deal.

On Saturday, at Comic-Con International, fans from around the world were given a sneak peek at the new series trailer for the show during a panel with cast and creatives from the series. It was moderated by series guest star Rainn Wilson (Harry Mudd), featured a conversation with cast members including Sonequa Martin-Green (First Officer Michael Burnham), Jason Isaacs (Captain Gabriel Lorca), Doug Jones (Lt. Saru), Shazad Latif (Lt. Ash Tyler), Mary Wiseman (Cadet Sylvia Tilly), Anthony Rapp (Lt. Paul Stamets) and James Frain (Ambassador Sarek).

Triple Threat – Comic-Con Teaser – Iko Uwais

Triple Threat
Triple Threat is based around a hit contract, taken out on a billionaire’s daughter, and they’re intent on bringing down a major crime syndicate. A down and out team of mercenaries must take on a group of professional assassins and stop them before they kill their target.

So, it’s lots of improbable martial-arts-by-numbers, held together by the most threadbare of plots, judging by the trailer.

Triple Threat doesn’t yet have a UK release date, or anything specific, other then “2018”

Director: Jesse V Johnson
Writers: Joey O’Bryan, Paul Staheli
Stars: Michael Jai White, Scott Adkins, Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Celina Jade, Michael Bispingm, Selina Lo, JeeJa Yanin

9/11 – Trailer 1 – Charlie Sheen

9/11 9/11 centres around a group of five people who find themselves trapped in an elevator in the World Trade Centre’s North Tower on September 11th, 2001.

The trailer comes across as a passionate idea, naturally, but it’s acted so badly and with a bollocksy all-American gung-ho nature, especially when it comes to the tagline…

    “They work together, never giving up hope, to try to escape before the unthinkable happens.”

9/11 is released, only in the US so far, on September 8th, and looks more like a TV movie than a theatrical one.

Director: Martin Guigui
Stars: Charlie Sheen, Whoopi Goldberg, Gina Gershon, Luis Guzmán, Wood Harris, Olga Fonda, Jacqueline Bisset, Billy Malone

Rebel in the Rye – Trailer 1 – Nicholas Hoult

Rebel in the Rye Rebel in the Rye tells the life of celebrated author – and recluse – JD Salinger (Nicholas Hoult, right), who gained worldwide fame with the publication of his novel, The Catcher in the Rye.

Writer/Director: Danny Strong, based on the biography, “JD Salinger: A Life”, by Kenneth Slawenski.
Also stars: Zoey Deutch, Kevin Spacey, Lucy Boynton, Sarah Paulson, Victor Garber, Hope Davis, Amy Rutberg

Rebel in the Rye isn’t a film I particularly fancy, but if it’s for you, then so far it only has a US release date of September 15th.
