Neue Trailer zum grandios aussehenden A Monster Calls, dem billig aber interessant wirkenden VR-Horror Let's be evil, dem Crime-Dingens White Girl, dem Rassismus-Drama Loving, Outback-Horror in Downhill, dem PTSD-Drama Quarry und La La Land mit Emma Stone und Ryan Gosling von Damien Chazelle, der mit Whiplash damals meinen Lieblingsfilm des Jahres 2014 abgeliefert hatte. Favs: Monster Calls und Lets be evil.

A Monster Calls

A visually spectacular drama from acclaimed director Juan Antonio Bayona (“The Impossible”), based on the award-winning children’s fantasy novel. 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall) attempts to deal with his mother’s (Felicity Jones) illness and the bullying of his classmates by escaping into a fantastical world of monsters and fairy tales that explore courage, loss, and faith.

Newsbits:

  • Neue Marvel-Serie: Marvel Series Lands Put Pilot Commitment At Fox: „The untitled project will focus on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.“
  • More Saw: Jigsaw Is Back! Maybe? There’s A New SAW Film, At Any Rate: „an eighth installment, subtitled Legacy, will be going into production this fall up in Canada. First was a production notice from a local IATSE chapter, and now the Ontario Media Development Corporation (those venerable horror news scoopers!) have leaked word that the Spierig Brothers, best known for Daybreakers and Predestination, will be calling the shots on this long-awaited (by me) series return.“

Lets be evil

Step into a virtual reality nightmare. Desperately in need of money to care for a sick parent, Jenny (Elizabeth Morris) takes a job supervising children at a learning center for gifted students. But when she and two other new employees are ushered into a maximum-security underground bunker where eerily robotic children are outfitted with augmented reality glasses, Jenny finds herself thrust into a disturbing technological experiment in which she is an unwitting player in a terrifying virtual game. This future shock brain-bender is a creepy kids thriller for our tech-addicted culture.

White Girl

Equipped with platinum blonde hair and a winning smile, college girl Leah (Morgan Saylor) seeks out pleasure in any form. She has two weeks before fall semester, and in between getting high with her roommate and snorting lines with her boss, she finds time to hit it off with a handsome, young Puerto Rican drug dealer named Blue. Within days, the two are selling dime bags to her affluent white colleagues, collecting fast cash, and living the high life. But their euphoria comes to a grinding halt once Blue is arrested and Leah’s left with a hefty amount of his coke. Does she sell it to save him or use it herself?

Loving

From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols, “Loving” celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown. Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry – and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since.

Downhill

After his best friend dies in a racing accident, biking star Joe agrees to go back on the wheels for an exhibition in Chile. On a test run with his girlfriend Stephanie, they stumble upon a badly injured man dying from a mysterious virus. That’s the start of a very bad day for them as they become the target of relentless killers ready to do anything to prevent their secret from leaving the mountains…

Quarry

'Quarry' is the story of Mac Conway, a Marine who returns home to Memphis from Vietnam in 1972 and finds himself shunned by those he loves and demonized by the public. As he struggles to cope with his experiences at war, Conway is drawn into a network of killing and corruption that spans the length of the Mississippi River.

La La Land
