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

trailers

Some weeks I really struggle to find anything interesting, well THIS WEEK WAS FAR FROM THAT! So many new trailers came out, even if a lot of them were for movies that already had trailers, I am excited about most of them. Let’s get this started!

Movies

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Does it look awesome? Definitely! Does it look anything like the book? Not really?
Ransom is cool with the changes they made, so I am definitely going to sit here and start complaining without having seen the actual movie BUT I just want to throw it out there in order to make sure that everyone who hasn’t read it knows that’s mostly not what’s happening in the books.

Now You See Me 2

I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE! MAAAAAGIC!

X-Men: Apocalypse

I am so afraid of that movie. I am scared it’s going to be really heart crushing. What’s up with all the negativity towards this movie? I think it looks super intense. When the bombs go up and the music starts – oh my!

The Legend of Tarzan

That definitely isn’t the Tarzan version I grew up with, but I am sort of intrigued. Whenever I watch it, I can’t help but wish for the Phil Collins songs to start playing in the background. And was that Vandal Savage at 1.35? Uuuuh! (Definitely me paying attention to the wrong things)

Central Intelligence

It might be funny. I said might!

Storks

It’s so adorable!

Ben-Hur

I am not really into these sort of historic films, but maybe one of you is. I am just going to leave this here.

Genius

Interesting cast! I am not sure how I feel about Jude Law with that accent though.

Jane Wants a Boyfriend

I love both, Amir Arison and Eliza Dushku, so, even if they aren’t even the main characters, I want to watch that movie.

Sausage Party

Please, be aware that this is definitely not for children hahaha

TV Shows

Orphan Black Season 4

I don’t even know what to say about this show anymore.

The A Word

It’s Eccleston and that’s the main reason I even watched that promo … but it’s actually an interesting topic! I am just not sure that’s my kind of show.

Good Behavior

It’s Michelle Dockery! I am not used to seeing her in modern day life and without her air of aristocracy.

As always, what do you want to watch? What’s your kind of movie or show? Let me read all about it in the comments!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Feb 15-21)

trailers

So, quite honestly I can’t remember all that much about last weeks trailers and such. Seen as I am not usually smart enough to keep this post in the drafts until Sunday when I want to post this, but rather check all the trailers again right on the day itself – let’s see what I can find!

Movies

Sing

As promised last week, the trailer for Sing! Not THAT much more than last week, but now we have a little more context.

Alice Through the Looking Glass (Grammy Trailer)

We all know this doesn’t really have anything to do with the books anymore, except for tiny snippets, but I am so cool with that. I am just glad there’s another movie!

Florence Foster Jenkins (Teaser)

Oh the cast is just fantastic on this one! I think it’s about a rich woman who wants to be a singer but has a terrible voice, I could remember that wrong though.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

It’s Magnus!!! *cough* I mean Harry Shum Jr. of course … Looks really epic though and Netflix barely ever does anything wrong.

Colonia

It looks freaking creepy! I am weirdly proud of how far Daniel Brühl has come though! And Emma Watson of course too!

Midnight Special

I just saw Adam Driver … yeah, I didn’t pay much attention after that anymore, my brain just went on a Kylo Ren daydream-trip.

The Preppie Connection

Thomas Mann sounds JUST LIKE he did in Me and Earl and the Dying Girl – the same bored tone. I don’t like it?

TV Shows

The Catch

Another Shonda Rhimes show … that woman is dominating Thursdays on ABC.

Orphan Black Season 4

Just some more Teasers and BTS stuff for Orphan Black.

Thirteen

I like some of the actors, but he way the story is told seems so creepy. Not sure yet …

Turns out, I found quite a bit! Did you see some shows/movies you might like?

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Jan 11 – 17)

trailers

It’s that time of the week again where I try to show you some Trailers and promos of TV shows you might have missed. There was not much fun and light stuff released this week, everything was mainly going in the more serious direction, but I hope you’ll still enjoy my finds!

Movies

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

Sooo … this is not usually my kind of movie, but it is the film John Krasinski got really ripped for and I love him … but the fact that this is based on someone’s life just sort of freaks me out a little.

Hail Caesar!

There’s already been a full Trailer release for this movie, but that particular Teaser is new, so I thought I’d share it! I think it looks quite funny … in an odd way!

Money Monster

And we are back to something serious. The thing is that I am not really a huge fan of George Clooney. I don’t dislike him, but I am just not really gripped that often … however, IT’S CLAIRE FROM OUTLANDER! I am quite excited to see her in modern day clothing (even though I have seen her in other stuff before).

The Secret Life of Pets

Again, the first trailer has been released a while back, but THIS LOOKS SO FUNNY! I can’t wait for that movie!

Sing Street

YAY to British movies! And the music that is going to be featured is just the greatest!

TV Shows

Orphan Black Season 4

I’m a little creeped out but whatever … Orphan Black can’t come back soon enough!

So, that’s it for this week! Let me know in the comments below what you think!

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

trailers

Apparently this really is a weekly feature now – YAY! I am sorry I didn’t write a post about the Christmas Special/Series Finale of Downton Abbey, but I didn’t know what to say. Everything was perfect, everyone is happy and so am I! But now onto some movie and TV trailers!

Movies

I Saw the Light

I Saw the Light is a Hank Williams bio-pic, a person I know virtually nothing about, but I do love the cast! We had a Hiddleston trailer last week, why not again? He met his current girlfriend Elizabeth Olsen while shooting and I just think they are amazing together!

Everybody Wants Some

THIS LOOKS SO HILARIOUS! And it has Tyler Hoechlin, Ryan Guzman and Blake Jenner in it. I like it already!

Deadpool New Red Band Trailer

Deadpool trailers aren’t anything new, but this one has a couple different scenes in it. It’s going to be so much fun!

TV Shows

Orphan Black Season 4

Admittedly, this is not a real trailer. It’s not even a real teaser, but I do love the show so much, I couldn’t help but wanting to include it!

Flash Remainder of Season 2

Not much to say, except for yay! I can’t wait for them to go to Earth 2!!!

Arrow Remainder of Season 4 (SPOILERS!)

I swear I am going to kill them if they kill Felicity! Are we clear?

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

I CANNOT WAIT!

What will you be watching? Did I miss something crucial? Any thoughts?

Orphan Black Season 3 Premiere

I love Orphan Black and after the discovery of the male Castor clones, I was majorly excited for the Season 3 Premiere of the show. Please beware of Spoilers for the first two episodes of the new Season!

Male clones … I don’t know why I am so happy about that, but I am. I think Ari Millen was a great choice too! He already portrayed Mark, a supposed member of the Prolethean group, all through Season 2. I really liked him a lot, because he defied the leader of the group and seemed to have somewhat more sense than the others. Finding out that he’s one of the Castor clones was so exciting and now Sarah gets to meet all sorts of other versions of them. As always I am more than impressed by Tatiana Maslany‘s and Ari Millen‘s acting, because I often wonder how they shoot all the scenes.

I hope you’ve seen everything that happened last Season, because otherwise this will all be pretty confusing. Let’s dissect what’s happened in the Season 3 Premiere (“The Weight of Combination”/”Transitory Sacrifices of Crisis”) :

  • Sarah meets Rudy, one of the Castor clones, who tells her that she should count her sisters and lo and behold, Helena is missing. As we know, Mrs S betrayed Helena and handed her over to Paul (who’s part of Castor) in order to protect Sarah. But of course, Sarah isn’t grateful, because there is nothing more important to her than protecting her family, which ultimately ends in her having to send Kira away again. I feel so sorry for them, they’re never able to just be together.
  • There was this scene where Sarah had to play Rachel and Alison played Sarah and that was just so weird. I wonder how Tatiana felt playing that scene.
  • Speaking of Helena: she’s pregnant! And she talks to a scorpion which no one other than her can see… I’m guessing that’s not a good sign, but don’t fret, Sarah is coming for her!
  • Cosima feels better! I love her so much and I am happy she didn’t have to die, but her relationship with Delphine is definitely on the rocks or over …
  • Alison is my favourite and ever since she and Donnie are working together and don’t have secrets anymore, they are even more hilarious! She now wants to take over the drug dealing business from some teenage kid, in order to gain the votes for her campaign from all the addicted soccer moms. Who even thinks like that? It’s genius!
  • Cal … I love Michiel Huisman, be it in this, as Daario in Game of Thrones or in the new movie The Age of Adaline. I don’t even care that he earned his money by creating dubious weapons, he seems like a good father to Kira and that’s all that matters now. And his conversations with jealous Paul are always fun to watch.
  • Have I mentioned that I think Ari Millen is great? The Castor clones are so interesting and it’s great that, contrary to the Leda clones, they are aware of each other. Rudy’s and Seth’s relationship was so cute and heartbreaking. I find Rudy most intriguing so far! He seems like the Sarah Manning of the Castor clones to me. And then there’s Mark … the last scene of “Transitory Sacrifices of Crisis” looked seriously painful and he better watch out, because Sarah is coming for him. Now I just wish that the Leda and Castor clones would work together instead of against each other.

This Season will surely be exciting! What are your thoughts on Orphan Black?

One Woman to Play Them All

Orphan Black is one of the new hit shows of BBC America and after watching the first season almost in one day, I can’t help but be amazed at the acting skills of Tatiana Maslany – but more about that later on.

Orphan Black is about a young woman called Sarah, who wittnesses the suicide of another woman, who looks just like her. Having had somewhat of a dodgy, criminal past and being in desperate need of a hide-out, Sarah steals the identity of her lookalike. What she didn’t expect though, is the fact that Elisabeth (the woman she stole the identity from) was a cop. After that things just get weirder and weirder, and quite complicated if I might add. It turns out that Sarah and Elisabeth are only two of a series of clones who all look exactly the same, but differ in personality. I hope I could get your attention by now, because I doubt I can explain any more of the plot. Basically, it has a lot to do with evolution (or as they call it here neolution) and the whole concept of nature and nurture.

The show is extremly interesting to watch and all the parts were amazingly cast. Tatiana Maslany, whom I mentioned before, plays Sarah and all of the other clones. Her repertoir is astonishing and I always forgot that she’s only one person. She is so precise in acting out the different characteristics of every clone, that it almost seems like there are several people playing the parts instead of one. I wonder if there is anything she can’t portray. But Tatiana isn’t the only one who does a great job. Jordan Gavaris for example, who plays Sarahs former foster brother Felix, brings a great element of humor to an otherwise mysterious and sometimes even action-packed show. Other cast members include: Dylan Bruce, Kevin Hanchard, Matt Frewer, Mary Doyle Kennedy and many more.

I absolutely cannot wait to see what will happen in the next season. Too bad I have to wait so long. What did you think of Orphan Black? Are you as impressed with Tatiana Maslany as I am?
