Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween – Trailer 1

Goosebumps 2
Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween is a sequel to 2016’s Goosebumps, a film no-one asked for, but clearly did well enough to warrant a sequel.

The first trailer doesn’t even have Jack Black in it, so is Jack Black back? Who knows. Either way, some kids come along and start sniffing around RL Stine’s books when they really shouldn’t… and then lots of CGI happens.

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween is released in the UK on October 12th.

Director: Ari Sandel
Cast: Madison Iseman, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Chris Parnell, Ken Jeong, and no-one else you’ve heard of.

Check out the trailer below:

The Favourite – Teaser 1 – Emma Stone

The Favourite
The Favourite is set in the early 18th century when a frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) is on the throne.

England is at war with the French, but nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving.

The Queen’s close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots.

Mark Kermode’s Secrets of Cinema Episode 1 – The DVDfever Review

Mark Kermode's Secrets of Cinema
Mark Kermode’s Secrets of Cinema is a new five-part BBC4 series about the movie critic’s first love, which starts with romantic comedies, and it doesn’t take long before Mr Kermode breaks films down a bit more than the rest of us would, for example, in terms of showing how Splash perfectly fits the three-act structure that most films follow, and I can see that in a lot of modern blockbuster films, today.

This first programme covers romantic comedies, aka “rom-coms”, with various chapters to each episode, such as “The Meet-Cute” – when the two characters meet and find each other attractive, The Casting – getting the right actors for your rom-com, as well as The Music and Dance – i.e. mixing the two together, since there’ll always be song-and-dance number in this genre of film, and he gives a good example with Joseph Gordon Levitt dancing to Hall & Oates’ You Make My Dreams Come True in the brilliant (500) Days Of Summer.

Wonder Park – Teaser 1 – Jennifer Garner

Wonder Park
Wonder Park centres around June (Brianna Denski), an optimistic, imaginative girl, who discovers an incredible amusement park called Wonderland hidden in the woods.

It’s full of fantastical rides and talking, funny animals – only the park is in disarray. June soon discovers the park came from her imagination and she’s the only one who can fix it, so she bands together with the animals to save this magical place and bring back the wonder in Wonderland.

Wonder Park is released in the UK on April 12th, 2019, so just in time for Easter, then.

Also stars: Ken Hudson Campbell, Kenan Thompson, Mila Kunis, John Oliver, Ken Jeong, Norbert Leo Butz, Matthew Broderick and Jennifer Garner (Peppermint).

The Piano 25th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Piano
The Piano is a film I first tried watch on video when it was first released, but I gave up halfway through as I found it too dull. So, why try to watch it again 25 years on? Because as times change, tastes change, too, and I’ve enjoyed a number of films these past few years which I wouldn’t have *got* back then. Hence, with the Blu-ray 25th Anniversary release here, it’s time once again to play The Piano.

The film’s set in the mid-19th Century, but while Ada (Holly Hunter, above-right) is mute, she actually can speak but somehow doesn’t, for reasons not even she knows. Hence, she lets the piano do her talking, and it’s certainly the only thing that brings her comfort – something she’s sorely lacking as she takes a boat over to New Zealand, where she’s getting married to Alisdair Stewart (Sam Neill). All her stuff, including her plinky-plonky musical instrument, ends up on the beach with nowhere to go. How are a young woman and a small child meant to move that before the tide comes in?!

Mom And Dad – The DVDfever Review – Nicolas Cage

Mom And Dad
Mom and Dad is out now on Blu-ray and DVD, and I have to say right off the bat that I love the way the opening credits are done in the style of a ’70s movie, showing pictures of the cast with their names, and before that, a copyright logo with the year the film was made, which, in this case, was 2017, even though it wasn’t put out on general release, even in the US, until January 2018.

But anyway, dates weren’t the reason you were interested in this film, and when I first saw the trailer, I wasn’t interested in it as the premise revolves around parents like Brent (Nicolas Cage – in angry mode, for a change) and Kendall Ryan (Selma Blair) trying to bump off their kids when something happens to make all adults turn on their offspring – it seemed a highly objectionable idea, but… then the film got a lot of rave reviews, so that piqued my interest and here I am, sat in front of it.

Red Sparrow (Censored) on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Red Sparrow
Red Sparrow brings us Jennifer Lawrence as Dominika Egorova, an expert ballet. Have you suffered a trip or fall at work? Could you claim compensation? Call Claims Direct now, since that’s what befalls this Russian lady who doesn’t look at all Russian.

Anyhoo, this stops her from being able to continue, but being out of work won’t pay the bills for her flat, or the healthcare for her mother, so she needs a few occupation, which leads her into working for some shady KGB-style organisation, the “Sparrow School”, and with Dominika having Uncle Vanya Egorov (Matthias Schoenaerts) as the man giving her the assignments, it’s like an alternate version of Nikita, as Dominika has some unconventional training and then gets into her mission, which involves American CIA agent Nate Nash (Joel Edgerton).

Tomb Raider 2018 on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Tomb Raider 2018 Tomb Raider 2018 is out now on Blu-ray, DVD and all formats to view at home and for when you journey all over the world, like Lara Croft and she’s reborn in the guise of the 2013 reboot game, of which I was not a big fan, unlike the 1996 original and a number of its sequels. I seemed to be in a small number when it came to that reboot, however. As for this film, and given that the Angelina Jolie movies were passable at best, this was clearly one of the movies I was least looking forward to, this year.
