Michelle Williams Joins The ‘Venom’ Cast

Im 50-50 on this movie. I trust the Marvel part with 50% and the Sony part I dread. But the casting has had me intrigued. No exception with the news today that Michelle Williams ( of Dawson’s Creek fame ) has joined the cast of the Venom movie.

The Taboo trailer is here. Drama series starring Tom Hardy

tom-hardy-taboo-set-02052016-lead01-600x450

 

Back in November 2014  I first wrote about this drama series TABOO , which was set to be produced by Ridley Scott , and star Tom Hardy.  At that point my interest was not at all that big, as I said “I might watch it “.  Now the eight episode series has released its first trailer, and I must say my interest is slightly elevated. Have a look :

 

Set in 1813, “Taboo” is based on an original story by Hardy and his father, Chips Hardy ( yes , his name is Chips ) . Hardy has the lead role of “James Keziah Delaney,” an adventurer who returns from Africa with 14 ill-gotten diamonds looking for vengeance after the death of his father ( Chips ? ). Refusing to sell the family business to the East India Company, he sets out to build his own trade and shipping empire and finds himself playing a very dangerous game ( Monopoly for realz )
Taboo is still in production and will not be out until at least 2017, when it will be shown on FX.  It is the first major production for Tom Hardy’s company Hardy Son & Baker ( wonder why it wasn’t Hardy Son & Chips )

What did you think of the trailer ? Let me know by posting me an actual letter. Or do the lazy thing and comment below.

DUNKIRK1940

The Dunkirk evacuation, code-named Operation Dynamo, also known as the Miracle of Dunkirk, was the evacuation of Allied soldiers from the beaches and harbour of Dunkirk, France, between 27 May and 4 June 1940, during World War II.

According to Variety  Nolan will direct “Dunkirk” from his own original screenplay as his next project. Insiders say the yet-to-be cast unknowns will lead the cast, but that Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh and Tom Hardy are in talks to join the ensemble.

We buried him proper . Trailer For The Revenant

 

file_611517_revenant-picture-1

This one gives us a little more story. The first trailer had no dialog at all, and In my opinion it was a better trailer than this new one. That being said, this film looks freaking awesome. I see awards potential here . For Tom Hardy of course, not Leo. He gets no awards, that’s a known fact ?

 

 

 

Inspired by true events, The Revenant tells the story of an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, where explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass must endure unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption.

The Revenant is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker, Academy Award winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu

Also starring Domhnall Gleeson and Will Poulter, the film is based on the novel by Michael Punke. Mark Smith and Iñárritu wrote the script for the movie, produced by Arnon Milchan, Steve Golin, David Kanter, Keith Redmon, and Iñárritu.

The movie will be free to watch online sometime early January when the studio sends out the Oscar screener :)

The Revenant trailer starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy… Looks fuck awesome !!!

20th Century Fox  released The Revenant trailer today! Opening to limited release in theaters on Christmas Day, the action adventure will then expand to a wide release on January 8, 2016. The old American Sniper routine i guess.

In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness,  explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy).

The Revenant is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker, Academy Award winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman, Babel).

Also starring Domhnall Gleeson and Will Poulter, the film is based on the novel by Michael Punke. Mark Smith and Iñárritu wrote the script for the movie, produced by Arnon Milchan, Steve Golin, David Kanter, Keith Redmon, and Iñárritu.

Will this be the one that earns Leo his Oscar ?  I doubt it. But Hardy could get the supporting actor award 🙂  And he also could beat Leo for Best Actor with his dual role in LEGEND !! We shall see.

I love that this will be one of the MANY films I will get to see for free during Hollywood Silly Season.  I can´t wait !!

Tom Hardy x2 In The New Trailer For LEGEND

legendmovieposter_large

In Legend, Tom Hardy plays real-life identical twins and infamous London gangsters Ronald and Reginald Kray. It was a role originally intended for two different actors,but after one dinner, Hardy convinced director Brian Helgeland that he needed to play both parts. And seeing this first trailer I am really glad the director agreed. This looks fucking great.

The Kray twins ran the East End during the height of the swinging ’60s. In spite of their many crimes — including armed robberies, arson, and even murder — the twins became celebrities, hanging out with the likes of Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland.

Check out the new trailer below:

 

Legend also stars Emily Browning, Christopher Eccleston, Taron Egerton, Tara Fitzgerald, Chazz Palminteri and David Thewlis.

Cross Creek Pictures’ Brian Oliver and Tyler Thompson produce with Working Title Films’ Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner alongside Christopher Clark and Quentin Curtis. Legend opens in the UK on September 9 and in limited release stateside on October 2.

Razzie Reviews The New @MadMaxMovie. Sort of …..

«You know, hope is a mistake». That is one of Tom Hardy’s ten lines in the film. And it sums up what i thought going in to see the film. I have watched the trailers  leading up to the release of the film. A film that wrapped principal photography in December 2012 !!

One trailer after another showed a wild chase through a desert. And that is really all they showed.That and proclaiming the the director of BABE 2 : Pig in the City was a MASTERMIND.

I myself started thinking a while back that maybe that’s all there is to this film. In fact , when i posted the first full trailer for the film in the end of March  , I wrote :

“Insanity indeed. And a little indication of what little actual plot there may be to this movie, filling the gaps between the short chase in the beginning, and the LONG chase at the end.Seems BIG ALBINO is running the show. He has a harem of ladies with chastity belts , which presumably he uses to conceive more albino warriors. Mad Max has to save them, and a chase ensues which is very very very very long. The End”

“From MASTERMIND George Miller………”

Trailer Post Here

And sadly that turned out to be the truth. There is no movie here. No character arks, no plot, or point. Its a 90min chase scene , which is fun to watch for the first 20 minutes, but does indeed wear pretty thin after a while. Like I said , the movie wrapped in December 2012. So MASTERMIND has had two and a half years of post production on this chase scene. And still the CGI albinos falling,  exploding , and rolling through wrecked vehicles sticks out like a sore thumb.

I haven't got a line here either. Lets just continue the chase ok.

I haven’t got a line here either. Lets just continue the chase ok.

I could try to go deeper into the “plot”, or the world in which this is all happening, but I really don’t see the point. MASTERMIND didn’t care enough to explain it, so why should I ?  And really, I doubt MASTERMIND could explain much of it, because its so far fetched , and unbelievable that I suppose only MASTERMIND can understand. The whole “society” that “Immortan Joe” has created just reeks of stupidity . Just the insanely unpractical elevator for his vehicle  defies all logic. And the fact that gasoline is supposed to be hard to come by in this world is kind of hard to believe, since everybody seems to have gas, and nobody seems to think twice about using  200 000 gallons of it to catch a couple of breeders.  But now It seems I’m trying to make some sense of this thing, and i told myself i wasn’t going to do that.

Old Fat Guy Made to Look Badass.

Old Fat Guy Made to Look Badass.

The film has gotten some pretty great reviews. Reviews i have not bothered reading i should say. Even one of our biggest newspapers gave it a perfect 6 out of 6.   Now, a top 6  is what I might give , say, The Godfather part 2. so how this chase scene can be lumped into that category is beyond me.  As far as action vs drama i would say that James Camerons ALIENS is a near perfect action film. But there is a build up there. There is a plot. A reason why .Its not just colonial marines shooting in every direction for 90 min.  Hell, even MICHAEL BAY tries to have some kind of story, and dialog in his explosion fests.  Mad Max Fury Road has none of that.It doesn’t even try. Its just : Get to the chase scene, because that’s the film. Its just to much of a good thing. And what they have going in the vain of dialog, and scenes in between chases, when they have to stop for a minute or two are just so lackluster, that i think seriously the whole MASTERMIND moniker that George Miller has slapped on himself is a huge inside JOKE . I’m sure the entire screenplay has less words in it than this review. No joke.

I guess my expectations were a bit to high for this film. Slowly leading up to its release I started thinking that maybe the whole film was just a long long chase scene. And I then went into it hoping that it would have something else, something more. But MASTERMIND disappointed me here.  I love me some Tom Hardy, and I can say that his movie LOCKE, which is him alone in a car, talking for 90min is a FAR BETTER film than Fury Road.  In the Mad Max film series i place Fury Road dead last. Explosions does not a movie make. Anyone that has ever criticized Michael Fucking Bay movies would be a huge hypocrite if they gave this film anymore than 50% rating . A 5/10.  A 3/6  or whatever system you have for rating these things.

 

Thats what i give it in the end .  A 3 out of 6.  There is some spectacular action in it, but beyond that there isn’t much here. And i suppose MASTERMIND never intended there to be anything else. The “Plot” is a rip-off from his earlier films. And if you are a fan of NASCAR then you might really love Fury Road. I was disappointed. And i doubt i will ever bother watching this film again. There were two guys my age sitting next to me in the theater, and when the movie ended  one guy turned to the other and asked : “Did you fall asleep?”  .  And that just about summed it up for me. . . .

Mastermind ??  Sure, whatever.

There is only one Road Warrior, and his name is Mel!
