Sharknado 2: The Second One – Official Trailer #1 – Syfy Channel Sequel HD

sharknado-2Sharknado 2: The Second One is a new period drama about Wittgenstein and the origins of his philosophies… oh no, it isn’t!

It’s the film where a freak weather system turns its deadly fury on New York City, unleashing a Sharknado on the population and its most cherished, iconic sites – and only Fin (Ian Ziering) and April (Tara Reid) can save the Big Apple.

Yes, Ian Ziering and Tara Reid! Remember them? They’re not dead after all, they’ve just clearly been in hiding.

Also starring Vivica A. Fox, Mark McGrath and Kari Wuhrer, Sharknado 2: The Second One airs on Syfy this Thursday at 9pm and it looks ace!

The Zero Theorem on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

the-zero-theoremfeatured

the-zero-theorem

The Zero Theorem is one of those off-the-wall films I wanted to see when it came out at the cinema, but my local Odeon criminally ignored it, and while I could’ve found somewhere in Manchester to watch it, the car parking situation is abysmal down there, so it’s a no-go.

Recent examples, for which I’ll also wait for the Blu-ray releases, are Cold in July and Boyhood.

In this film, Christoph Waltz (below) is Qoehn Leth, a man who’s not very well, and constantly refers to himself as “us”. Like Homer Simpson, he wants to get classified as disabled so he can work from home, on the Zip-T program, a graphics-filled program which is, intentionally, about as much fun to the end user as working in a call centre would be for anyone. Of course, to the viewer, it looks amazing, but when tied in with the 1984-style dystopian nightmare world, it’s just another element of hell for Qohen.

Nightcrawler – Teaser Trailer #1 – Jake Gyllenhaal Movie HD

nightcrawlerNightcrawler proves that Jake Gyllenhaal rarely chooses a conventional film.

It’s a pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Gyllenhaal plays Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling – where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents.

Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou thrives. In the breakneck, ceaseless search for footage, he becomes the star of his own story.

Also starring Bill Paxton, Ann Cusack and Riz Ahmed, Nightcrawler is due out in the UK on November 14th.

Mommy – Official International Trailer #1 – Xavier Dolan Drama HD

mommyMommy is a new French-Canadian drama about a widowed single mother (Anne Dorval), raising her violent son alone, who finds new hope when a mysterious neighbour inserts herself into their household.

Also starring Antoine-Olivier Pilon, Suzanne Clément, Alexandre Goyette and Patrick Huard, this film is written and directed by Xavier Dolan.

It’s also filmed in an odd ratio, as it’s not quite 4:3, and it’s kinda like it’s been shot with a mobile phone held vertically, rather than horizontally (the proper way). However, it definitely looks worth a watch.

Mommy doesn’t yet have a UK release date, however, only getting a September 19th release date in Canada so far.

The Grand Budapest Hotel on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

grand-bupapest-hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel makes its way on to Blu-ray and DVD, with a bold instruction at the start of the film: “PLEASE SET YOUR MONITOR TO 16X9″. You’ll see why in due course.

The film involves the theft of a priceless painting, a wealthy, 84-year-old dowager (Tilda Swinton) who dies which leads to a will that’s bound to be contested by various members of her family, plus Willem Dafoe as a violent thug who’ll sort out the contesting of the will by his own terms.

The Purge Anarchy & Joe lead the new cinema releases & trailers – w/e July 25th 2014

the-purge

This weekend there are five new films out for you to choose from: action in The Purge: Anarchy, drama in Joe, more apparent action in Hercules, an E.T. rip-off in Earth To Echo, and a dire piece of CGI nonsense in The House of Magic.

The Purge: Anarchy

The Purge: Anarchy is a sequel to a film which completely passed me by when it came out last year and starred Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey. In The Purge, all emergency services were suspended for a 12-hour period during the purge. Murder becomes legal. In fact, any and all crime is legalised.

This sequel follows this on with exactly the same thing, and stars Frank Grillo, Zach Gilford, Michael K. Williams, Kiele Sanchez, Amy Paffrath, Edwin Hodge and Carmen Ejogo.

Noah – out on July 28th on Digital HD, video on demand, Blu-ray & DVD

noah

Noah is the one about a man who built a big ark to take a load of animals, when he got word that there was going to be a bit of a flood on the way. Of course, these days, if it happened, the powers that be would no doubt blame it on man-made global warming like they always do. Similarly, the existence of a higher power also seems to go unchallenged by some. Anyhoo…

Directed by Darren Aronofsky, Russell Crowe stars as the titular hero alongside Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth, Nick Nolte, Mark Margolis, Kevin Durand, Leo McHugh Carroll and Marton Csokas, Noah is out on Monday, July 28th on Digital HD, video on demand, Blu-ray & DVD.

Need For Speed 3D on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

needforspeed2014featured

Need For Speed

Need for Speed aims to do for movie franchises what the bafflingly popular Fast and Furious series has also done, but in this case it’s also based on the popular videogame franchise, and how many videogames have been made into great movies? Very few.

Mechanic Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul) is given the option to earn a quick buck, well, $500,000, by his wealthy ex-partner Dino (Dominic Cooper), who turns up out of the blue to offer him this chance. It involves dealing with a flashy car with a chequered past and it’s sure to get our hero into trouble, but his eyes fazed over the second Dino mentioned the amount of money he’ll be getting.

A further bet and an impromptu race ends up with Tobey going to the clink for a couple of years, while Dino gets off scot-free, the latter framing the slightly-bearded one from the annoying Xbox One adverts, where he’s clearly so enthralled with Titanfall (so he claims) that he diverts away from it to watch the football.
