Trailers You Might Have Missed … (March 23-29)

I want to use this weekly opportunity to check in with all of you! I hope quarantine life is treating you alright and that you stay home (if that is an option for you) and safe and sane. I think studios are a bit reluctant to release stuff these days, because cinemas are closed, so I am not sure how interesting this post will really be, but let’s check it out!

Movies

The Lost Husband

It looks simple enough, but sweet? Like the kind of “Safe Haven”/”Life as We Know It” stuff Duhamel used to do?

The Great

I am so into this.

The Main Event

The only experience I have with wrestling is GLOW, but okay.

Coffee & Kareem

Ed Helms and Taraji P Henson is such a funny idea for a pair to being with.

The Willoughbys

Yes, this is for me.

Survive the Night

I am just kind of over Bruce Willis thriller/action movies? Not even Chad Michael Murray as his son can raise my interest.

The Host

I think I’ll pass.

Tigertail

For some reason I thought this movie was already out just based on the name? But then I realised that I was stupid and had in reality thought of the madness that is Tiger King.

Fatima

I am really not one for religious content.

Most Dangerous Game

Didn’t I already post this?

TV Shows

Defending Jacob

Okay, my heart skipped a couple beats watching this! It’s not even my regular go to genre, but Chris Evans looks phenomenal in it. The acting is going to cause so many feels.

#blackAF

Is it copying/plagiarism if you use your own material?

Run

Still very much into the idea of this, even if it’s mostly due to Domhnall Gleeson and Phoebe Waller-Bridge being involved.

Into the Night

This took such an unexpected turn!

Survive

Every time they show more of this, it looks even creepier.

Brews Brothers

It looks so dumb, and I am not opposed to it.

Dirty John: The Betty Broderick

Oh, I thought the Dirty John series was just a limited series thing instead of an anthology-esque show.

Future Man (Season 3)

I don’t feel qualified to talk about this show.

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (March 16-22)

I feel sorry for all the movies and TV shows that had to halt production, for all the projects that had to postpone their release or resort to an early digital release. We all turn to entertainment in these times, so, I hope we are all able to really show appreciation for their work and are able to support them in other ways.

Movies

Inheritance

I DIDN’T EVEN RECOGNISE SIMON PEGG!? WTF? The cast of this is amazing and even though it’s not my usual genre, I am tempted.

Selah and the Spades

The suspense is there for sure.

Adventures of Rufus the Fantastic Pet

Eh … that cat looks super weird.

Deerskin

Just imagine how wrong things must have gone for someone to diss you with a “you don’t exist anymore”.

Clover

I think thriller comedies are a weird genre.

Bad Therapy

It’s messed up.

Hippopotamus

This is the kind of movie that REALLY freaks me out.

TV Shows

Never Have I Ever

You instantly got me with “a new Mindy Kaling show”.

Upload

This feels super Black Mirror, but I am here for it!

Maxxx

This looks just so dumb

The Midnight Gospel

I’ve never done drugs, but I strongly assume that this is an accurate representation of what it looks like if you do them.

Free Ray Shawn

I’ve never watched anything on Quibi before?

Nailed It (Season 4)

I need something to laugh, so I will watch this again (even though I strongly believe that not even professional bakers can achieve these tasks within the time limits and people are set up to fail).

Is there something you’d like to watch? Let’s chat!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (March 9-15)

I hope you are all doing well, not taking the social distancing too hard and finding ways to keep yourself entertained in the meantime. I know you don’t need to read about the virus here on top of everywhere else, but due to the next monthly update not being for a while, I just wanted to inform you all that I will not be going to Canada anytime soon. Measures in my own country have increased and, in general, it would neither have been a responsible nor smart choice to go right now. All of that has left me rather sad, but I suppose it wouldn’t have been fun over there either. So, let’s get back to regular programming and start talking trailers!

Movies

Soul

IT LOOKS SO COOL!

Jungle Cruise

On the one hand, I think this is so silly, but on the other hand, I am on board.

Uncorked

Didn’t know this movie was made until just now, but I will HAPPILY watch anything with Mamoudou Athie. He is seriously underappreciated.

The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee

Awe, if Paul Hogan did this to have fun, I am all for it.

Bad Trip

I … don’t think I need this in my life. I never enjoyed anything jackass-like before.

The Artist’s Wife

This movie has a realness to it.

Arkansas

It’s a maybe from me.

The Quarry

This just isn’t really my kind of movie.

True History of the Kelly Gang

George MacKay out there, still giving very intense roles his all!

The Little Dragon

Not a huge fan of the animation style, so will likely pass.

Children of the Sea

This could be cool, I think.

TV Shows

Home Before Dark

I super like the look of it. I mean, they torched that little girl’s bike. That’s brutal!

The Third Day

This turned dark fast.

Altered Carbon: Resleeved

Yo, I didn’t even have the time to check out the second season of the live action show yet. No way am I going to watch this animated stuff too.

Did you see a movie or TV show you’d like to watch? Let’s talk about it!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (March 2-8)

I hope you are all doing well! There’s not much to talk about considering that my last post was my monthly wrap-up, so let’s dive right into the trailers!

Movies

Banana Split

THIS IS MY KIND OF MOVIE!!! (I seriously wouldn’t even have minded if they’d made it gay)

Connected

They kind of lost me a little bit with the robot apocalypse? But it still has great animation style.

Artemis Fowl

I hear people who have read the book aren’t into this.

Lost Transmissions

It’s not something I’d expect Simon Pegg in, but I am not against it.

Antebellum

I still think this looks cool?

Only

This … this is exactly like that Casey Affleck movie? Just that it was about his daughter instead of his wife? Why are they producing all these movies where women go extinct???

Seven Stages to Achieve Eternal Bliss

This is the kind of strangeness I expect Taika Waititi to partake in …

Greyhound

I am sorry, but war movies just really aren’t my thing.

Blue Story

Peoples feels about this movie are very mixed and I don’t know what to say about it, cause I don’t think it’s my lane?

Radium Girls

I don’t know why (maybe The Kissing Booth?) but I can’t take Joey King all that serious.

Proxima

Apparently they worked really close with ESA experts to make this movie realistic, but Eva Green is spectacular either way.

Sea Fever

This has been done so many times, it’s just in the sea this time around.

The Other Lamb

Cult movies are just creepy beyond anything.

TV Shows

I Know This Much Is True

We don’t just get one, but TWO Mark Ruffalos in this!

Unorthodox

The first shot is of Berlin and then it just continued far different from what I expected. But it’s very Berlin in the end.

The English Game (Mini-Series)

Did not expect this to get so intense.

Our Girl (Season 4)

I LOVE THIS SHOW! I am actually glad Captain James isn’t in this, because he behaved so out of character last season and I didn’t like that at all. I pretend it never happened.

Elite (Season 3)

I AM READY!!! Like SO SO SO ready!!!

Casa de Papel/Money Heist (Part 4)

I am still no season 1 …

What We Do In the Shadows (Season 2)

Let the weird continue.

Siren (Season 3)

Despite this title sounding like a very me thing, I have never watched the show and therefore have nothing to say.

Ozark (Season 3)

I TRIED, okay? I just didn’t get into this show and was surprised it had a third season.

What did you think? Are there shows or movies you would like to watch? Let’s chat!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Feb 24 – March 1)

February is over (and we even had a lovely leap day this year), but you won’t get my monthly wrap-up until tomorrow. Today remains all about trailers for upcoming films and shows. Let’s get started!

Movies

The High Note

It looks like a simple enough formula, but I would watch this.

The Blithe

The cast of this! And it actually looks like fun too.

Self Made

Anything with Octavia Spencer is a hit!

The Healer

I know it looks cheesy af and I am not sure how much I am into the religious component, but I am kind of into it.

Almost Love

I like how the woman is kind of the sidekick to the gay couple this time around.

Candyman

Look, I don’t watch horror. Why would I want to scare myself on purpose? But, I can acknowledge what Jordan Peele is doing for the genre, especially black people in it. So, I thought I’d share this regardless.

Fatale

This is really more of a teaser than anything else.

Rumble

Guess we are really doing 2021 trailers already?

Emperor

I just saw TVD’s Bonnie and kind of clicked?

Enemy Lines

I don’t think Ed Westwick is still a thing. That’s the only thought I had really.

Abe

Didn’t I already post this but in far worse quality?

Robert the Bruce

I don’t think that’s my kind of historical movie.

The Last Vermeer

And this isn’t really it either.

TV Shows

Gangs of London

This is basically modern day Peaky Blinders and even with Jon Shelby (seriously though, support Joe Cole. He is brilliant!)

Tales from the Loop

I like exploring stuff that doesn’t make sense necessarily.

The Eddy

Musical dramas really can be hit or miss with me and this doesn’t exactly tell us a lot just yet.

GO KARTS

Is this an Australian show? If they made this but didn’t give me a second season of Tidelands, I am going to be pissed.

The Letter for the King

I think I’d watch this.

Betty

I actually haven’t watched very many HBO shows lately and I don’t think I will get started on this one either.

Roswell, New Mexico (Season 2)

When they released the poster for the season, I was like “why does he look like a ghost??”. Never did I expect freaking Max Evans to remain dead permanently. They better fix this.

On My Block (Season 3)

This show is so out there, but also so relatable.

Have you seen any of these before? Would you like to watch any of the things mentioned? Let’s chat!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Feb 17-23)

I don’t even know what I did this week, but post it was not. I do have a couple ideas for upcoming stuff though, so, fingers crossed I’ll get to them next week. For now, let’s stick to trailers though!

Movies

Endings, Beginnings

This movie is largely improvised and I cannot wait to finally watch it!! I saw the interviews and stuff at TIFF last year and have been yearning for at least a trailer since then.

Big Time Adolescence

This is just Pete and MGK being themselves, but I am so glad they FINALLY released the trailer.

Run

Hello Domhnall Gleeson, I don’t know what’s happening, but I want to see it.

The Secret Garden

I am quite excited, even if it is nothing like the old movie … or the book? Because there was no actual magic?? But I think I’ve said all that before.

Dream Horse

I thought I already featured this another week, but it was another horse movie. Who would have thought that 2020 was still the year of horse racing movies?

Bad Education

I thought this was something to do with Jack Whitehall, but alas … it’s a Hugh Jackman thing instead.

The Postcard Killings

Not my genre at all, but I saw Jeffrey Dean Morgan and couldn’t resist.

Human Capital

I saw Robin from Stranger Things and just clicked again.

TV Shows

Amazing Stories

Teen Wolf’s Stiles and YOU’s Love – count me in!

I Am Not Okay With This

ooookay, so I thought this was just awkward teen stuff and not another telekinetic Carrie-esque thing the Stranger Things folks came up, just with the cast of IT, but … I am still going to watch it?

Feel Good

This is actually the comedian’s real story, so that’s neat that she gets to tell it.

Little Fires Everywhere

It looks so good.

Freud

I am not a Freud enthusiast, but this is German/Austrian Netflix content, so I feel a weird loyalty towards it.

Elite (Season 3)

I am so ready for this and SO happy that the wait isn’t that long!

On My Block (Season 3)

This trailer came out of nowhere and the fact that the date is only a couple weeks away is even more surprising, but you won’t see me complaining.

Westworld (Season 3)

I can’t watch this, because I haven’t watched the last season yet. But enjoy!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Feb 10-16)

It’s Sunday and we all know what that stands for on the blog – new trailers! Since I have been posting quite a bit lately, I don’t think we need a catch up on things, let’s just dive right in!

Movies

The Batman

This is a camera test more than anything else, but I wouldn’t even be mad if that’s all they released. No trailers about the storyline or so, just camera tests with different characters. I’d be so into that.

The Green Knight

I AM 100% HERE FOR THIS! 100%!!

The French Dispatch

I am Wes Anderson trash and I will watch this very Anderson-esque tale inspired by The New Yorker!

Hooking Up

I like the male/female role reversal we have going on here and the serious subtext!

After We Collide (After 2)

It looks steamier than the first one? I am basing this all on the trailer, I have to admit that I did not watch that stuff. Also … was that Dylan Sprouse? And I know Candice King is in it too …

The Secret Dare to Dream

Okay … so, not to bash anyone who believes in the book, but … this is a work of fiction and I’d like to consider it as such and ignore the book part? Cause it looks cute, but in a “everyday magic”-kind of way. I believe that it’s productive to go into situations with a positive mindset, but in no way can the power of thinking save your house from a natural disaster. Sorry, but no.

The Iron Mask

Look, I know this story, I just never expected to see it with Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan?

Tuscaloosa

Not your typical romance movie.

10 Things We Should Do Before We Break Up

Not your typical romance movie, the second.

Run This Town

I just love Ben Platt.

Military Wives

This feels like a bit of a niche audience movie, but I can see some people really enjoying this.

Standing Up Falling Down

I wasn’t sure if I had included that already, so here we go again, just to make sure. (Cause in this house we support Ben Schwartz in all his endeavors)

The Stranger

I have a hard time taking Dane DeHaan seriously, through no fault of his own, but he just has such a young face.

Cut Throat City

Not my thing.

TV Shows

Noughts & Crosses

FINALLY!!! I am not even joking, but I waited over A YEAR for this promo alone. The BBC had it in their 2019 line up and then never released the show. You can’t deny me access to Josh Dylan content for that long.

Survive

Sophie going dark again!

The Letter to the King

I mean, why not? It doesn’t look like it would be off brand for me to watch.

Altered Carbon (Season 2)

Honestly, I didn’t even watch the full trailer, because I was quite happy with the mysterious teaser last week and it’s releasing soon anyway, so I am here for it.

Killing Eve (Season 3 Date Announcement)

Do I really have to say anything?

Sex Education (Season 3 Announcement)

Castlevania (Season 3)

I think I watched the first season of it, but it wasn’t exactly my thing.

The Protector (Season 3)

I know a couple people who will be happy about more of this!

Stranger Things (Season 4)

Who all knew that a certain someone wasn’t dead?
