Neue Trailer zu Terrence Malicks „Lets film a Terrence Malick-Drama at a Rock Festival“-Drama Song to Song, ein erster Teaser zur JJ Abrams/Stephen King-Serie Castle Rock, nochmal ein zweiter, längerer Trailer zum Hardcore-Horror The Void (den ersten Trailer hatte ich neulich erst hier gepostet), zur vierten Staffel von Silicon Valley, dem gradlinig und großartig aussehenden Thriller Mean Dreams, zur Mystery/Horror-Serie The Sinner, zu Guy Richies Guyrichisierung von King Arthur: Legend of the Sword und nochmal ein Trailer zu Power Rangers der trotz superbeknacktem Creature-Design aus der Transformers-Gestaltungshölle unterhaltsamer aussieht, als ich es hier jemals zugeben würde.
Und dann noch zum im März auf dem SXSW premierenden Us and Them, ein Klassenkampf-Thriller aus UK mit ein bisschen „Eat the Rich“-Attitüde:
Angry and frustrated, working class Danny aims to kick start a revolution by turning the tables on the establishment with a deadly game of chance. With it’s raw energy and stream of consciousness plot, "Us and Them" is a backlash against the drone of British period dramas. Danny is an ordinary working class kid who is tired of the rough deal he faces. His plan? To start a revolution by streaming attacks against the one percent on the web. His goal? To terrify the elite into bringing about change.
Writer/director Joe Martin taps into his blue collar roots to capture the zeitgeist of outsider politics that have gripped the western world. In "Us and Them" he lays bare the inequality and anger that wrong footed the media and led to the shock events of Brexit and Trump’s victory.
„The Last Jedi teaser trailer takes a cue from The Force Awakens teaser by having Finn be the first person we see. Much like the first shot in the aforementioned teaser from December of 2014, Finn appears in a stir, breathing heavily, waking up in a medical bay, which is where we left him at the end of The Force Awakens. […] From there, we get a shot of Poe Dameron coming through a sliding door on a ship, saying something along the lines of, 'They’re almost here'. The room supposedly shakes and the Rebel pilot looks concerned. This is followed by a completely different scene of a funeral procession walking through a huge city before a character in dark clothing draws a blaster and fires it at someone in the procession.
Then Poe is seen with Finn and the Rebel character played by Kelly Marie Tran, and they’re all dressed like First Order officers. […] Another shot features Captain Phasma leading a group of Stormtroopers, with the description adding that they look a little different, but also admitting that could be a misconception. Phasma tells the Troopers to 'Find them', and it appears to take place in the same city of the funeral processions. Stormtroopers fire all over, causing commotion all over.
There’s shot of General Leia who says 'Their shadow is growing', followed by a shot of Supreme Leader Snoke stepping out of the darkness. This supposedly isn’t a visual effect, but a practical one, with the character standing 8 feet tall, towering over General Hux who can’t bring himself to make eye contact with him. Snoke asks, 'Is he alive?' to which Hux answers, 'Barely'. Snoke responds, 'Good. The time has come for a family reunion'. […] Finn barges into a meeting that Leia and her advisers are having and says, 'They’re back', with the General being not surprised by this revelation. Finn reacts and says, 'You knew', with Leia saying, 'I felt it'. Then the Millennium Falcon flies out from waves into the sky, followed by TIE Fighters flying through space.
Finally, a Stormtrooper runs out of an alley in the aforementioned city, with several others following him afterwards. They meet Captain Phasma, to which one of the troopers says, 'It’s the Jedi'. Phasma stays while the other troopers run. A lightsaber ignition is heard, a blue light reflects off of Phasma’s helmet. The trailer cuts black and Luke says, 'Everything will die with us'.“
In this modern love story set against the Austin, Texas music scene, two entangled couples—struggling songwriters Faye (Rooney Mara) and BV (Ryan Gosling), and music mogul Cook (Michael Fassbender) and the waitress whom he ensnares (Natalie Portman)—chase success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.
A 15-year-old boy steals a bag of drug money and runs away with the girl he loves. While her violent and corrupt cop father hunts them down, they embark on a journey that will change their lives forever.
When police officer Carter (Aaron Poole) discovers a blood-soaked man limping down a deserted road, he rushes him to a local hospital with a barebones, night shift staff. As cloaked, cult-like figures surround the building, the patients and staff inside start to turn ravenously insane. Trying to protect the survivors, Carter leads them into the depths of the hospital where they discover a gateway to immense evil.
Following their collaboration on 11.22.63, J.J. Abrams is reteaming with Stephen King for another Hulu limited series based on King’s works. Titled Castle Rock, the series is being written by Manhattan creator Sam Shaw and Dusty Thomason.
Castle Rock, from Abrams’ Bad Robot and Warner Bros TV where the company is under a deal, is based on short stories by King. It is named after Castle Rock, the fictional area in King’s native Maine that serves as the setting for a number of his novels, novellas, and short stories. (Deadline)
The first installment of the close-ended series follows a young mother (Jessica Biel) who, when overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage, commits a startling act of violence and to her horror has no idea why. The event launches an inverted and utterly surprising crime thriller whose driving force is not the “who” or the “what” -- but the “why” -- as an investigator (Bill Pullman) finds himself obsessed with uncovering the woman's buried motive. Together they travel a harrowing journey into the depths of her psyche and the violent secrets hidden in her past.
Acclaimed filmmaker Guy Ritchie brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.” Starring Charlie Hunnam in the title role, the film is an iconoclastic take on the classic Excalibur myth, tracing Arthur’s journey from the streets to the throne.
When the child Arthur’s father is murdered, Vortigern (Jude Law), Arthur’s uncle, seizes the crown. Robbed of his birthright and with no idea who he truly is, Arthur comes up the hard way in the back alleys of the city. But once he pulls the sword from the stone, his life is turned upside down and he is forced to acknowledge his true legacy…whether he likes it or not.
