Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – Official Trailer 2

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is JK Rowling‘s latest foray into fantasy nonsense, telling the adventures of writer Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards, seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school.

And now the second official trailer has been released.

I still haven’t got round to seeing a Harry Potter movie, but while I’ve no desiree to sit through all eight, the one I *do* keep meaning to catch up with is the third one, Harry Potter and the Prisoner Of Azkaban, as is was directed by Alfonso Cuarón, who had some fantastic one-take scenes in Children Of Men with Clive Owen, one lasting around 20 minutes. Mr Cuarón also made a little-known space movie called Gravity.

Doctor Strange – Official Trailer 2 – Benedict Cumberbatch

Doctor Strange Doctor Strange. Doctor Who. Doctor Foster. “Doctor, Doctor” by the Thompson Twins… the world is never short of doctors to put in the entertainment outlets…

Benedict Cumberbatch is Stephen Strange, the world’s top neurosurgeon, unfortunately injured in a car accident that ruins his career, but helpfully letting him discover the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions. This leads him to set out on a journey of healing, where he encounters the Ancient One (Ben Kingsley as Tilda Swinton), who later becomes Strange’s mentor in the mystic arts.

And now, a second trailer has been released.

I’m very tempted to see this one on the big IMAX screen at the Odeon Manchester Printworks, which is the second biggest IMAX screen in Europe and only slightly smaller than the BFI IMAX, since if the visuals are as regular in the film as they are in this trailer, then it’ll be quite a treat.

King Cobra – Official Trailer 1 – James Franco

King Cobra King Cobra tells the story of Sean Paul Lockhart (aka Brent Corrigan), played by Garrett Clayton, a gay porn headliner who, and how he fell out with the producer, Joe (James Franco), who made him famous. When Sean decides he’d be better off a free agent, a cash-strapped pair of rival producers aim to cash in by any means possible.

Written and directed by Justin Kelly, based on a story by D. Madison Savage, the film also stars some people you haven’t seen in a big film for a while, in Christian Slater, Molly Ringwald and Alicia Silverstone, plus Keegan Allen, Sean Grandillo and Spencer Rocco Lofranco, and it looks pretty good. Certainly will be worth it for Slater and Ringwald.

King Cobra is released on October 21st in the US, but as of yet there’s no UK date.

Fences – Official Trailer 1 – Denzel Washington

Fences Fences stars Denzel Washington as Troy, an African American father, who struggles with race relations in the USA while trying to raise his family in the 1950s and coming to terms with the events of his life.

Denzel also directs himself, plus Viola Davis (Suicide Squad) and Mykelti Williamson (Forrest Gump) from a script written by August Wilson, based on their own play.

Little else is known about this film just yet, although his character is rather a bar-steward, and I still don’t think that Denzel Washington can act his way out of a paper bag, and this was brought home even more with his recent foray into a Western with The Magnificent Seven, but despite all that, for a change, Fences does look like a Denzel film worth watching.

Fences is built in the US on December 25th, but as of yet, we’ve not got a release date for construction to begin in the UK.

Damned Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review – Jo Brand comedy

damned

Damned Damned is a new sitcom about social workers who are damned if they do, and damned if they don’t. In reality, they can never get a break. Too much is expected from them, and the moment something goes wrong, the press jump on them.

So far, I’ve seen the first two episodes, and both have begun with various calls coming in from the public including one-liners such as “What’s the alcohol allowance for a 12-year-old?” and “You’ve taken all the kids into care. Can you take the rabbit as well?”

Crisis In Six Scenes Season 1 – Woody Allen – The DVDfever Review

crisis-in-six-scenesb

Crisis In Six Scenes

Crisis In Six Scenes is the new TV project for prolific writer/director Woody Allen, a man who churns out a new film every year, even as he approaches his 81st birthday.

Set in the ’60s, he takes the lead role as Sid Munzinger, a novelist working on a new TV show, and having written a lot of television commercials in the past, but not everyone’s a fan. For example, the series begins with him at the barber shop wanting to get a haircut like James Dean, where he learns the man attending to his hair took ages to read his latest book… because it made him fall asleep.
