Happy Saturday! Or, if you’ve been following the Rugby World Cup, it’s our weekly hyperventilation and flailing session -_-; Anyway, wasn’t planning on posting this as my blogging schedule as more or less filled up until January (oops) but I was going through my bookmarks the other day and realised I accumulated a number of movie trailer links recently 😀 Plus, the first trailer I’ve listed here prompted me to do this because OMG
We finally have a proper full-length trailer for this show! The teasers were cool but an absolute torture to watch because I wanted to see actual footage from the show/Jessica Jones doing stuff. Like many I wasn’t familiar with the comic but after the success of Daredevil (review) earlier this year and the premise of Jessica Jones’ story, I can see why they chose it as the next adaptation. So yeah, the cast and the story piqued my curiosity, but seeing the trailer now I am quite excited for it. I don’t think I’ve seen Krysten Ritter in a dramatic role quite like this before, and from the glimpses we’ve seen of David Tennant, he’s looking positively creepy. Yeah, I’m ready for this show.
I read the first Shannara trilogy by Terry Brooks when I was in high school and The Elfstones of Shannara, which this adaptation is based off from, was my favourite. So I was both excited and wary when I heard that they were adapting this into a television series–by MTV, no less. I’m still a little sceptical as it looks to be geared to a particular crowd but I’m also intrigued to see how they pull it off. Plus, it’s such a mind-boggle that John Rhys-Davis is playing an elf here 😉 Methinks I need to revisit the book…
Had no idea that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt starred in another movie together. Looks pretty, I’m intrigued.
I admit, this movie caught my attention because Josh Charles is in it, but it looks interesting and touches on some very serious issues of mental health.
This looks like such Oscar bait material (gah, why did I use that phrase, I hate that phrase, lol), but it looks interesting and the cast is solid.
Again, it looks like it’s catered for Oscar season but it is something the Coen brothers would film about, and again the cast looks solid and the humour quirky. Why not?
I read the book years ago when the whole adding-a-supernatural-twist-to-classics was just taking off and thought it was amusing enough. I admit I wasn’t terribly excited when I first heard it was being adapted because zombies since have oversaturated pop culture, but watching the trailer now it looks fun. I wouldn’t say no to watching it, haha 😛
Moving along with the fairy tale live-action adaptations, there’s finally a trailer for the French adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. Should be interesting and I think I read somewhere that it’s following the original story (I’m not familiar with the original tale, I’m only going by the Disney movie, oops :3). Plus Lea Seydoux looks stunning as always. Wouldn’t say no to Vincent Cassel either, I’m always impressed by his performances.
What do you think of these trailers? Will you be checking any of them out?
