Ted 2 – Official Trailer #1 – Mark Wahlberg, Seth MacFarlane Comedy Sequel HD

ted-2Ted 2 is the sequel to 2012′s Ted, a film which I never got round to seeing at the time but everyone seems to rave about a bear that swears. Hmm…

In this sequel, Ted wants to marry his girlfriend and then have children, but he doesn’t have a penis and can’t provide sperm, hence, cue lots of messing about in a sperm donor clinic, and Mark Wahlberg going along with it again.

Ted is again voiced by Seth MacFarlane, and the cast also includes Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Patrick Warburton, Dennis Haysbert, Lexi Atkins, Michael Dorn, Richard Schiff, Amanda Seyfried as Samantha Leslie Jackson (who’s never heard of Samuel L Jackson – laugh? I never started) and Sam J Jones (yes, Flash Gordon! He’s alive!)

Ted 2 is released in the UK on July 10th, and if you haven’t seen Ted, then it’s on Channel 4 this Saturday at 9pm. I’ll give it a try but I’m not expecting much.

Furious 7 – Official IMAX Trailer – Vin Diesel, Paul Walker Movie HD

fast-and-furious-7
Furious 7, nee Fast and Furious 7, continues the series that will never end until they’re all pushing up daisies, and this time round, Ian Shaw (Jason Statham) seeks revenge against Dominic Toretto and his crew for the death of his brother.

I’ve yet to see one of these films in full, and quite frankly, the trailer is enough for me. There’s a scene that takes up half the trailer which is actually quite amusing, but do I need to pay £10 to see that again, plus 2 hours of all the cast standing around talking? I don’t think so.

Furious 7 also stars Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker, Lucas Black, Vin Diesel, Ronda Rousey, Michelle Rodriguez, Kurt Russell, Jordana Brewster, Iggy Azalea, Djimon Hounsou, Nathalie Emmanuel, Tony Jaa, Tyrese Gibson and is released in the UK on April 3rd 2015.

Check out the trailer below which tells us that the film will be available in IMAX… not that it’ll be filmed that way. I’m surprised they don’t fake a 3D print at the same time:

Inherent Vice and (censored) Kingsman lead the new cinema releases & trailers – w/e January 30th 2015

inherent-viceThis weekend there are EIGHT new films out for you to choose from: slick period noir in Inherent Vice, censored comedy in Kingsman: The Secret Service, a great thriller in Free Fall, cops vs bikers in Cymbeline, inflatable CGI robots in Big Hero 6, trash in… erm… Trash, and drama in Anna and Modern Day Slavery, and Son Of A Gun.

Note: No-one should go and see Kingsman as it’s censored, and definitely no-one should see that or Big Hero 6 in IMAX because NONE OF EITHER WERE FILMED IN IMAX! YOU ARE PAYING EXTRA FOR NOTHING!!!

Inherent Vice stars the always-watchable Joaquin Phoenix as Larry “Doc” Sportello who, during the psychedelic 60s and 70s, is surprised by his former girlfriend and her plot for her billionaire boyfriend, his wife, and her boyfriend. A plan for kidnapping gets shaken up by the oddball characters entangled in this groovy kidnapping romp based upon the novel by Thomas Pynchon.

Paul Thomas Anderson never turns out a bad film (Magnolia being my favourite) and this film also stars Benicio Del Toro, Jena Malone, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon and Josh Brolin.

Hit or Miss? Verdict:

Ghostbusters III – Ghostbusteresses? The idea of a third film just gets worse and worse!

ghostbusters-iiiGhostbusters III is something that might’ve been half an idea in the early 1990s, after the wonderful 1984 original, but then we later had the dismal sequel, Ghostbusters II, in 1989.

Over the years, there’s been talks of endless rewrites, rebooting the franchise with young Ghostbusters, Bill Murray not being at all interested, only a cameo from Harold Ramis – who sadly passed away in February last year, and then… an all-female Ghostbusters movie. Everything we’ve ever heard about it all sounds like a collection of bad ideas.

But, the latter option appears to have won through.

Who’s up for it?

Desert Dancer – Official Trailer #1 – Freida Pinto Movie HD

desert-dancerDesert Dancer tells the tale of Afshin Ghaffarian (Reece Ritchie) and his friends, who, despite the dangers, form an underground dance company where, via hacking into YouTube, they learn from the very best – Michael Jackson, Pina Bausch, Gene Kelly and Rudolf Nureyev.

Reveling in the freedom of expression that dance gives them, they set upon putting on a performance deep in the desert, away from the watchful eyes of the military police.

Desert Dancer prides itself as (get ready to pass the sick bag) “a classic hero story about brave young people risking their lives to rebel against their government and fight for their dreams….” I told you.

Also starring Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire), plus Nazanin Boniadi, Tom Cullen, Marama Corlett and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s Simon Kassianides, Desert Dancer doesn’t yet have a UK release date but is out in the US on April 10th. Even when it does come out over here, I won’t be rushing to see it…

The Intruders – Official Trailer #1 (2015) – Miranda Cosgrove Movie HD

the-intrudersThe Intruders is nothing to do with the recent TV series, Intruders, but is instead yet another of those apparent thrillers where someone new moves into a house which has a spooky past. Those new people are teenager Rose Halshford (Miranda Cosgrove, right) and her Dad, Jerry (Donal Logue), and weird stuff starts happening at the hands of Tom Sizemore, Jenessa Grant and Austin Butler.

After the traumatic loss of her mother, a teenaged girl tries to uncover the dark secrets behind her new home, in spite of her father’s disbelief.

The Intruders is released in the US on February 24th but hasn’t yet got a UK release date. It’s possibly worth a watch.

Check out the trailer below:

The Fantastic Four – Official Teaser Trailer #1 (2015) – Miles Teller, Michael B Jordan Movie HD

The Fantastic FourThe Fantastic Four is not a third film in the series following the so-so 2005 reboot, but is yet another reboot, this time starring Whiplash‘s Miles Teller as Mr Fantastic, Kate Mara as The Invisible Woman, Michael B Jordan as The Human Torch and Jamie Bell as The Thing… yet, Billy Elliot! Then again, Bell was also up to all kinds of naughtyness in Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac, so all bets are off!

This new version is (it says here) a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centring on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.

The Fantastic Four also stars Reg E Cathey, Tim Blake Nelson and The Veteran‘s Toby Kebbell, and is directed by Josh Trank, who wrote the daft but engaging Chronicle and is released in the UK on August 6th.
