The Rewrite – Official Trailer #1 – Hugh Grant, Marisa Tomei Romantic Comedy HD

the-rewriteThe Rewrite stars Hugh Grant in a romantic comedy, amazingly enough, as Keith Michaels, an Oscar-winning writer in a slump who leaves Hollywood to teach screenwriting at a college on the East Coast, where he falls for a single mom taking classes there, namely Marisa Tomei.

Directed by Campbell Scott and also starring Allison Janney, J.K. Simmons and Bella Heathcote, this looks like it could be worth a watch for Tomei, at least, even if it’s not the most original concept.

The Rewrite is released in the UK on October 8th.

The Pyramid – Official Trailer #1 – James Buckley – Horror Movie HD

the-pyramidThe Pyramid is what’s found by a team of U.S. archaeologists, which is buried deep beneath the Egyptian desert. As they search the pyramid’s depths, they become hopelessly lost in its dark and endless catacombs. Searching for a way out, they become desperate to seek daylight again. They come to realize they aren’t just trapped, they are being hunted.

It’s yet another “everyone’s trapped and we’ll run around screaming” horror film, which are coming thick and fast, but it looks okay.

The film stars The InbetweenersJames Buckley, plus Ashley Hinshaw and Denis O’Hare.

The Pyramid is unearthed (see what I did there? Eh? Eh? Is this thing on?) in the UK on December 5th.

Rosewater – Official Trailer #1 (2014) – Gael García Bernal, Jon Stewart Drama HD

rosewaterRosewater features Gael García Bernal as a journalist who is detained in Iran for more than 100 days and brutally interrogated in prison by a man called Rosewater, played by The Bridge‘s Kim Bodnia.

Written and directed by The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart, I was looking forward anyway to see his creation after he took several months off from the show last year to make this, and to know that it also stars Kim Bodnia? This is a must!

Rosewater doesn’t yet have a UK release date but is out in the US on November 7th.

Exists – Official Trailer #1 – Eduardo Sánchez Horror Movie HD

existsExists is a horror movie set in the woods where, for five friends, it was a chance for a summer getaway – a weekend of camping in the Texas Big Thicket. But visions of a carefree vacation are shattered with an accident on a dark and desolate country road. In the wake of the accident, a bloodcurdling force of nature is unleashed – something not exactly human, but not completely animal – an urban legend come to terrifying life…and seeking murderous revenge.

Directed by Eduardo Sánchez, and starring Dora Madison Burge, Samuel Davis, Denise Williamson, Roger Edwards, Chris Osborn, plus Brian Steele as the Sasquatch, this does seem rather ‘seen it all before’, but then the director was also responsible for 1999′s supposedly ‘groundbreaking’ The Blair Witch Project, which I thought was dire. Hence, you know what to expect, as it’s basically the same.

Exists doesn’t yet have a UK release date, but is out in the US on October 24th.

Trash – Official UK Trailer #1 – Rooney Mara Movie HD

trashTrash-picking goes on in the slums of Rio, and two boys find a wallet in amongst the daily detritus of their local dump. However, little do they imagine that their lives are about to change forever. But when the local police show up, offering a handsome reward for the wallet’s return, the boys, Rafael and Gardo, realize that what they’ve found must be important, since all the bad guys are after their blood in order to get it.

Directed by Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot), it stars Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen and Wagner Moura.

Trash looks rather like formulaic… ‘trash’, but if you want something that’s bound to be feel-good nonsense, then it’s released in the UK on January 30th.

UK Top 100 Music chart summary & my views w/e September 6th 2014

September 6th 2014Going straight in at No.1, in the UK Top 100 Music Chart w/e September 6th 2014, is Lilly Wood and Robin Schulz with Prayer In C and it’s okay, but nothing to get excited about. Certainly something that would sound better when in a club and you’re pissed, so who’s buying it at home?

Interestingly (or not), the track is billed to “Lilly Wood & The Prick and Robin Schulz”. But I guess Radio 1 wouldn’t say “The Prick”, even if they hire enough of them.

As such, David Guetta feat. Sam Martin with Lovers On The Sun drops to No.3, and it’s rather soulless. Definitely not worthy of a top track.

There’s just one other new entry in the Top 10 – Maroon 5 at No.2 with Maps.

You can hear the Lilly Wood and Robin Schulz track here:

The Interview – Official Trailer #1 – James Franco, Seth Rogen Comedy HD

the-interviewThe Interview poses Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen), who run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.

Also starring Lizzy Caplan, plus Randall Park as Kim Jong-un, this looks well worth a watch, but you’ll have to wait until January 30th for the UK release date.

COMPETITION – Win Homeland Season 3 on Blu-ray!

homeland-season-3

DVDfever.co.uk and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment have teamed up to give you a chance to win a copy of Homeland Season 3 on Blu-ray.

There are 2 Blu-rays to be won!

Homeland Season 3 sees Claire Danes return as Carrie Matheison, and Mandy Patinkin as Saul Berenson, beginning to pick up the pieces of their shattered professional lives, as they’re swept up in the political and media firestorm surrounding the terror attack and the subsequent search for the whereabouts of Nick Brody (Damian Lewis), following the aftermath of the horrific terror attack that decimated the U.S. intelligence apparatus, and prompted a global manhunt for this man who is the world’s most wanted terrorist.

Winston Wolf – Pulp Fiction-inspired Direct Line “Break In” TV advert

winston-wolfWinston Wolf is the character portrayed by Harvey Keitel (right) towards the end of Quentin Tarantino‘s classic second movie, Pulp Fiction, which also starred John Travolta, Uma Thurman and Samuel L Jackson.

Winston, aka “The Wolf”, fixes problems. It’s a contraversial choice, for sure, since in Pulp Fiction, he was telling Jules and Vincent to scoop up the blood-soaked body and brain of a young man called Marvin, just in the middle of having a discussion about how the two of them managed to cheat death, despite a hidden shooter coming out from the back room at the last minute and using a ‘hand cannon’ to try and blast the pair into next week, as you can see here.

And I used to be with Direct Line, but every year I shop around for new insurance, and Direct Line no longer put themselves on comparison sites, and every time I used to use this company, they always cost more than some of the rest, so that’s why I no longer check their website.

Still this is a superb advert in which he tells them how they can prevent a further break-in. I’m curious, though, as to why the couple have pictures of their items which have been stolen. Who takes a picture of standard household items?

And it’ll be interesting to see if Winston Wolf returns in more adverts once the Daily Mail have had a moan. Check it out below:
