Lemon Tree Passage – Official Trailer #1 – Jessica Tovey Australian Horror Movie HD

lemon-tree-passageLemon Tree Passage is a local legend in Australia, where two of the residents introduce three American backpackers to the place where a ghost of a motorcyclist warns young drivers to slow down. After seeing the ghost first hand they uncover a malevolent force that posses the area and threatens to wreak havoc on the final days of their vacation. Isolated and ten thousand miles from home, the tourists find themselves caught in the clutches of an evil force much more heinous than the local myth believed.

The cast features Jessica Tovey, Nicholas Gunn, Pippa Black, Tim Phillipps and Andrew Ryan, so no-one famous then.

There’s no UK release date yet for Lemon Tree Passage, and it didn’t thrill me at all for a thriller, as it looks all “seen it all before”.

Interstellar Official TV SPOT – IMAX (2014) – Matthew McConaughey, Christopher Nolan Sci-Fi Movie HD

interstellarInterstellar now has an IMAX TV spot online, but this trailer has no IMAX footage in it at all as it’s all in 2.35:1.

Like the second and third Batman films from Christopher Nolan, Interstellar will also contain footage shot in the full IMAX ratio of 1.44:1, which is such a rarity these days because you have to shoot on film, and such stocks of film are depleting, meaning that this is most likely to be the LAST EVER FILM which features IMAX footage in 1.44:1. Lots of films contain IMAX footage shot digitally, but that ratio only opens up to a maximum of 1.90:1.

It’s the first new film from Nolan following the completion of his Dark Knight Trilogy, and features Matthew McConaughey and features as one of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

This film looks a bit like 1997′s Contact, given the subject matter, and that film also featured McConaughey, who appeared alongside Jodie Foster.

Interstellar has a cast of fantastic stars including Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, William Devane, Topher Grace, Wes Bentley, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow and David Oyelowo, and is set to open in the UK on November 7th, the same day as the US.

Amityville: The Awakening – Official Trailer #1 – Bella Thorne Horror Movie HD

amityvilleAmityville: The Awakening is upon us in due course and for this new film in the never-ending franchise, a single mother moves her three children into the haunted house not knowing of the house’s bloody history…

Starring Bella Thorne (right), Cameron Monaghan and Jennifer Jason Leigh - who really ought to know better, the trailer for this shows that there’s nothing new in this incarnation, and that most other films have done the scares a whole lot better.

Also, you can tell Amityville: The Awakening is a stinker as it just cries out for a Halloween release date… yet is shoved back to January 1st in the UK (and Jan 2nd in the US). Avoid.

The Calling – Official UK Trailer #1 – Donald Sutherland, Susan Sarandon Thriller HD

the-callingThe Calling stars Susan Sarandon as Detective Hazel Micallef, who hasn’t had much to worry about in the sleepy town of Fort Dundas until a string of gruesome murders in the surrounding countryside brings her face to face with a serial killer driven by a higher calling.

Also starring Gil Bellows, Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace and Donald Sutherland, this doesn’t look too bad, although it does seem to give away far too much in the trailer in an attempt to draw you in.

The Calling is out in the UK on October 10th

Whiplash – Official International Trailer #1 – J.K. Simmons, Miles Teller Drama HD

whiplashWhiplash stars Miles Teller as Andrew Neyman, a young musician who struggles to make it as a top jazz drummer.

That doesn’t sound like a fascinating premise, but the trailer shows a great performance from J.K. Simmons, as his teacher, who I remember best as Schillinger from prison drama Oz; and Paul Reiser is also in the film but not in the trailer.

Still, Whiplash looks worth a watch and it’s released in the UK on January 16th 2015

As Above So Below and Let’s Be Cops lead the new cinema releases & trailers – w/e August 29th 2014

as-above-so-belowThis weekend there are seven new films out for you to choose from: horror in As Above So Below, comedy in Let’s Be Cops, feel-good comedy drama in The Grand Seduction, drippy drama in If I Stay, Disney baseball in Million Dollar Arm, more comedy in Obvious Child and eco-drama in Night Moves.

As Above So Below

As Above So Below is a thriller set in the miles of twisting catacombs which lie beneath the streets of Paris, the eternal home to countless souls. When a team of explorers ventures into the uncharted maze of bones, they uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead.

A journey into madness and terror, As Above So Below reaches deep into the human psyche to reveal the personal demons that come back to haunt us all.

As Above So Below stars Ben Feldman, Edwin Hodge, Perdita Weeks and from the trailer it looks superb and consistent, so here’s hoping the finished film can maintain this pace.

Hit or Miss?

Into The Storm – The DVDfever cinema review

into-the-storm-featured

into-the-stormInto The Storm is the film I was expecting to outdo Twister in the special effects stakes, especially since it’s been 18 years since Speed’s Jan De Bont threw a cow in our face, much to Helen Hunt’s surprise. It didn’t, but it’s still worth a watch on the big screen.

The basic plot is that it’s graduation day at Silverton High School, in Averagetown, USA. Brothers Donnie (Max Deacon) and Trey (Nathan Kress) are putting together a time capsule video which will be unveiled in 25 years, so they’d best make it a good one. This means that, after a brief opener where we see four random high school students encounter a twister during the night (since a film’s got to grab you from the start), it then gives way to 25 minutes of lengthy scene-setting, introducing all the characters, including expert storm chaser Pete (Matt Walsh), whose team includes the stunning Sarah Wayne Callies (below), as Allison, and I remember her particularly from Prison Break as Dr. Sara Tancredi, who was decapitated at the end of season 3, but managed to get it all together again for season 4.
