Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Feb 4-10)

I am still not 100% healthy again (darn you, clogged ear!) but I am feeling much better. I did unfortunately have to miss out on a couple things last week, but I did get to go to an event on Friday, which was better than nothing. Also, I left that one before midnight, so I felt very Cinderella-esque with my constant “I should go!”, while all the others kept partying. Anyhow, we are here for trailers!

Movies

The Sun is Also a Star

I feel like most of you will already have seen this, because it’s one of the most anticipated YA adaptations of the year, but it’s just so freaking beautiful.

Avengers: Endgame

We all needed to get sad again I suppose …

Shaft

We’re just getting reboots of everything these days, aren’t we?

Giant Little Ones

I’d watch this in a heartbeat!

Love Is Blind

I .. am not sure I get it all. She doesn’t see OR hear them? How?? But Aidan Turner … I’d watch it on some streaming platform probably.

Daffodils

I did not think this would turn into a musical?

Ugly Dolls

It looks cuter here than in the teaser, but it still feels like they want to recreate Trolls.

Missing Link

I like the look of this.

Toy Story 4

Is it really gonna take place in a carnival thing?

Wonder Park

Walk. Ride. Rodeo.

It doesn’t feel that Netflix to me.

TV Shows

The Handmaid’s Tale (Season 3)

I am so pumped for this, but also terrified of what will happen.

Dating Around

Wait! Netflix is helping people date now!? And they release it on Valentine’s Day in case you are single and want to watch other people date???

What We Do in the Shadows

Taika, you freaking mad genius!

In the Dark

I know that shows like this (reminds of Frequency for some reason) don’t last very long on the CW, but it’s the CW. I will watch it.

Grand Hotel

That guy who is applying for the job in the first scene is a close friend of a friend and I can’t get over that fact.

American Princess

It looks so weird, I dig it.

The Other Two

This doesn’t look like it will last at all.

LA’s Finest

I mean … I am not even into crime shows, but this looks fun. Sort of?

Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists

I can’t believe that the one person from the original show that is on here is Ali. I never liked her. (Okay, Mona is in it too, but … ugh)

Doom Patrol

Here for it!

Warriors

Sure, why not?

Anything catch your eye? There’s a couple things I am quite excited for. Let’s talk!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Jan 28-Feb 3)

Please send me all the good vibes you’ve got. I’ve been sick the past couple of days and it’s been super annoying and I’d like to go back to work tomorrow. Fingers crossed this works out, because there’s a lot of stuff happening this week!

Movies

Birds of Prey

I don’t really have a formed opinion on this movie yet.

Hobbs & Shaw

I have so many questions … why? How? Who thought we needed a Fast and Furious spin-off and those were the right people from the franchise to go with???

The Secret Life of Pets 2

You know what’s up with these character trailers by now.

A Breath Away

This actually looks really promising.

A Dog’s Journey

I am pretty sure A Dog’s Purpose failed big time at the box office, yet they still did a sequel.

Slut in a Good Way

Very interested in the choice of making this movie black and white?

The Wedding Guest

I miss Dev Patel doing light-hearted roles.

A Vigilante

Olivia Wilde went dark for this one!

Superpower Dogs

Documentary of the week because dogs and Chris Evans. Enough said.

TV Shows

The Red Line

This made me so, so sad. Injustice like that is just the worst, but the show looks great. Very emotional.

Hanna

When I think of this, I just can’t help but picture wee Saoirse Ronan instead.

Pearson

I had no idea there was a Suits spin-off.

Abby’s

I am not a sitcom person, so this is a mere maybe. Not many shows are filmed with live audiences these days.

The Breaker Uppers

This looks so silly, but … Taika Waititi!

Quicksand

This isn’t really my kind of show, but I appreciate the continued international content.

City on a Hill

Looks decent.

Good Girls (Season 2)

When Rio says “Elizabeth” I melt and I know how wrong that is.

Fuller House (Season 5)

Why did I think S4 was the final one??

Shadowhunters (Season 3B)

I have no idea what’s going on, because I haven’t watched it for a while.

Vikings (Season 6)

Can’t believe this show is ending. It was just always .. there?

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD (Season 6)

I gotta admit that I just put this here and didn’t even watch it, because I think I exited the show sometime around S3 or 4.

What have you been watching? I’ll probably update you all with another post on what I’ve been binge-watching soon!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Jan 21-27)

This week went by fairly quickly. I feel like I have gotten some of my reading mojo back as well as motivation to write, which makes me extremely happy. Here’s to hoping it lasts for a while, but now on to the new trailers:

Movies

Fast Color

This is legit the movie I am most looking forward to from the candidates we get this week. It looks stunning!

The Death and Life of John F. Donovan

Like, I am here for it, but they started the dramatic music way too early (and I say this with the utmost love for Woodkid).

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

Can we not glorify Bundy? Why is this music so upbeat? Dude is evil!

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind

I really like the title and it looks like a great movie.

The White Crow

I like ballet movies and I caught a glimpse of Sergei Polunin and he is a formidable dancer.

Drunk Parents

Meh. I very much doubt I would pay for a ticket at the movie theater to see this.

Run the Race

This, too, does look like a TV movie.

The Unicorn

I just clicked for Lucy Hale in this one.

Abe

The sound on this one is off somehow, but Noah Schnapp and food! I am into it.

TV Shows

American Gods (Season 2)

I am pumped! As long as it has Mad Sweeney, I will tune in.

The Umbrella Academy

I CANNOT WAIT!!! It looks so good and I am seriously counting the days until it releases. Bless Gerard Way!

The Boys

Another comic book adaptation and I am IN!

The Spanish Princess

I looks good. Starz knows what to do with historical subjects.

Bless this Mess

It does look like a bit of a mess indeed.

The Enemy Within

I shared a teaser before and I still don’t care about the topic, but here you go.

What are you watching? Did you like anything you saw here today? Let’s talk about it in the comments below!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Jan 14-20)

It’s Sunday and you all know what that means – a new batch of trailers has arrived! I hope you all had a good week. I initially planned to post more on the blog, but then I just couldn’t find the time. Maybe next week!

Movies

Berlin, I Love You

I am not going to go into detail on how the movie should be called Berlin, ich liebe dich based on the previous movies being Paris, je t’aime and New York, I Love You … but whatever. I am also not going to comment on how I only saw two German actors in that whole thing, because … I like the look of it … a lot.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

I am sad by how underwhelmed I am by these trailers.

Red Joan

I love the casting and I actually think the subject matter looks interesting too.

Ghostbusters (2020)

Why are we doing this again?

Little Woods

It looks sad, but Tessa Thompson and Lily James in one movie – it’s as if someone made this specifically for me.

Five Feet Apart

They made another trailer or was the first one just a teaser? I can’t remember. Really glad the topic of CF is getting exposure, but I can’t see this becoming a huge commercial success. But we will see.

Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase

I feel like I am not the target audience for this.

The Hummingbird Project

Why would take away Alexander’s hair?

Paddleton

This could be right down my alley. It’s one of those lazy Sunday movies.

I Like Flynn

I would have never pegged this for a theater release.

Patrick

THE GAME OF THRONES REFERENCE FROM FORMER DAARIO!!! (Otherwise the movie looks silly)

High Life

The creep factor on this is on a level I don’t know how to describe.

John Wick: Chapter 3

I know this franchise has a cult following, so I am not going to comment on it (couldn’t really anyway since I haven’t watched the previous ones).

High Flying Bird

I can’t really see myself being super into this topic, but it doesn’t look bad.

Penguins

Documentary of the week.

TV Shows

Now Apocalypse

The so didn’t get the rights to call it Apocalypse Now and will forever confuse audiences now.

Space Force

Just the fact that someone made this into a show is hilarious in itself.

Dirty John

Guess Netflix bought the rights to another show with a very creepy man as the main focus.

Game of Thrones (Season 8)

This still isn’t actual footage from the episodes, but I am so here for Jon and Arya protecting MY queen. (The lone wolf dies but the pack survives – I have to keep believing that!)

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Season 4)

Kimmy Schmidt is one of those shows that I always watch, that has some really great gags, but in the end it doesn’t stick super strongly. So, what I am trying to say is, I am not really sad that this will be the final season.

What are you watching? Did anything in particular catch your eye? Let’s talk about!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Jan 7-13)

I can’t believe that has only been the second week of 2019, because somehow it feels like we’ve been at it for months already! Anyway, this year will hopefully hold some great movies for us, so let’s check out some trailers:

Movies

Little

I know this has big remake vibes like What Men Want, but I am still here for it. It looks funny.

Hotel Mumbai

I heard Dev talk about this movie at a festival, but I still wasn’t prepared for the intensity of it all.

IO

Uhm … I thought Io was just spewing volcanoes and therefore definitely not livable? I’ll still watch it for sure.

Polar

Has Netflix discovered Vanessa Hudgens for themselves? I am more excited about Mads and Lagertha being in this.

Velvet Buzzsaw

Why did this have to turn into a horror flick?

FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened

Documentary of the week

TV Shows

HBO Line Up

My Queen Sansa is not having it in that small moment with Dany. I can’t wait!

One Day at a Time (Season 3)

Who else is SO ready for all the B99 cameos!?!?!

The Punisher (Season 2)

There is no Karen Page in this trailer and that makes me angry. She better not be sidelined, because I am gonna go ahead and guess that Netflix will have to cancel this like all their other shows because of Disney+.

Pure

Joe Cole! Joe Cole! Joe Cole!

Siempre Bruja: Always a Witch

I didn’t expect there to a be a time travel element, but I am here for it.

Russian Doll

Is this Happy Death Day in serial format?

Weird City

It’s weird. Let’s leave it at that.

Hanna

So, this is supposedly based on the film Hanna.

Roswell, New Mexico

SOON! It will never hold up to the brilliant show from my past, but I am ready for more alien action.

The Enemy Within

It’s very hard for me to get into these kind of shows. There are just so many crime shows already.

What have you been watching? I’ve been binging a lot of Netflix, so I will likely make another post about that soon!

Random Movie Recommendations: Karen Gillan Edition

Usually, I have movie recommendations based around a theme or genre for you, but not this time. This time, it’s simply Karen Gillan. I adored her when I first met her as Amy Pond on Doctor Who, I was happy for her when she started to get major roles in Hollywood and I was beyond impressed when I watched her directorial debut. Now, she is coming to Berlin for a project I am not really at liberty to talk about and you never know, maybe our paths will cross one day?

The Party’s Just Beginning

(TW: suicide, excessive drug and alcohol use, bullying of/violence against trans characters)

Honestly, the trailer didn’t really convince me to watch the movie. It was a little bit all over the place, whereas it didn’t feel like that at all to me when I watched the entire movie. This was Karen’s directorial debut and she showed the bleak and somber side of Scotland, her home, for sure. The movie was harsh, but hit deep (being stuck in eternal grief stages is a big mood) and I am excited to see what more Gillan will show us in the future.

Please, don’t watch this while being in a bad place mentally! My own state of mind wasn’t that great and the movie threw me for a real bender. As much as I want to commend Karen Gillan for her work here, it is depressive and does not sugarcoat anything whatsoever. It can be a cleansing movie, but it can also destroy you emotionally.

Really could have needed someone to hold me after this. Preferably, also Lee Pace …

Not Another Happy Ending

On to something way more fluffy! We are still in Scottish territory, but this is an awesome RomCom about a writer who has writer’s block and her editor trying to sabotage her relationship because she writes better when she’s unhappy. Tell me that doesn’t intrigue you! I dare you!!

I don’t even know what to say. This movie offers pretty much exactly what it advertises – light entertainment. If you don’t go into it expecting mad twists and turns or some sort of unpredictable storyline you will be fine and most likely enjoy yourself.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

I was very tempted to put Guardians of the Galaxy as one of her more mainstream projects here, but then I decided against it. Nebula is for real one of my most favourite characters in the MCU, but Jumanji was more of a surprise. So, that’s what I am going with.

When I was younger, I was obsessed with the original Jumanji movie. Nothing, I was sure of it, could ever compare to it. And Welcome to the Jungle definitely isn’t up to par with the original, but it is a lot of freaking fun. Sometimes you just have to not take everything so seriously and these sequels can be downright hilarious. They are even making another movie (with the same actors) and I am confused and suspicious but I learned better than to judge it before watching it.

Have you watched any of these? Do you like Karen Gillan as much as me? Let’s chat about it!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Dec 31 – Jan 6)

I know I have given you quite a lot of trailers and such to think about already with my best of 2018 lists (you can check out my thoughts on books, movies and TV shows in the previous posts), but the week wouldn’t be complete without a trailer post on Sunday. So, here we go!

Movies

The Secret Life of Pets 2

There’s just so many character trailers.

Anthem of a Teenage Prophet

Another YA book adaption as far as I know, just that the book title is Anthem of a Reluctant Prophet. I might read it, but I am not sure yet.

I Hate Kids

I can’t believe they are trying to release this in cinemas, because it looks like VoD for sure.

Close

Is that … is that Liesel from The Book Thief?

Ashes in the Snow

This is based on a book. That’s all I know about it.

Arctic

I am a huge Mads Mikkelsen fan, but I am not sure this one is for me.

TV Shows

BBC Drama

There is no way you could get all the shows in this with one watch and without pausing but I am super pumped about so many of them!!! Some new Peaky Blinders and The War of the Worlds, World on Fire as well as Noughts & Crosses on the top of the list. (I need to catch up on Poldark, Les Mis and Killing Eve though)

Carmen Sandiego

Why am I so jaded and don’t like this animation. Actually, I don’t hate the animation, I just don’t like it for these characters. I liked how it used to look in the past. I have become old and grumpy …

Sex Education

This could go both ways and be really good or really, really beyond saving terrible.

Punisher (Season 2)

I AM SO READY FOR THIS FAM!

Friends from College (Season 2)

I am also really excited for this!

American Gods (Season 2)

It feels like they are taking forever with this new season. There better be a lot of Mad Sweeney, because his episode was my fave of Season 1.

Stranger Things (Season 3 – date announcement)

It’s still so far away …

Shameless (Season 9)

I honestly haven’t seen this show for about 3 seasons now. I was just too disappointed that Lip managed to mess up his college education and gave up.

What have you been watching? Did you start good into the new year? Let’s chat!
