YAY FOR OUR 100TH POST ON BVRN!
And this week it’s a Trailer Tu-Thursday! My favourites this week include a trailer for a film about a man and a stray cat, another about birds and a baby, and of course, a featurette about a wizard and some magical creatures. So many human-animal relationships going on here!
1. Central Intelligence
When it is released? 1st Jul 2016 (UK), 17th Jun 2016 (USA)
What is it about? After he reunites with an old school pal through Facebook, a mild-mannered accountant is lured into the world of international espionage.
Immediate thoughts? This is so clever! Showing some outtakes shows how great Johnson and Hart get along, and I’m so excited to see their on-screen relationship! It’s different for a trailer, and it works for this kind of film, nice!
When it is released? 3rd Feb 2017 (UK), 30th Sep 2016 (USA)
What is it about? Acclaimed writer and historian Deborah E. Lipstadt must battle for historical truth to prove the Holocaust actually occurred when David Irving, a renowned denier, sues her for libel.
Immediate thoughts? The complete opposite of Central Intelligence above, but this looks equally as captivating. Just in different ways, of course.
When it is released? 14th Oct 2016 (UK), 23rd Sep 2016 (USA)
What is it about? Storks have moved on from delivering babies to packages. But when an order for a baby appears, the best delivery stork must scramble to fix the error by delivering the baby.
Immediate thoughts? Babeh powda. I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!! EVERYTHING EVERYTHING EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS TRAILER IT JUST GETS BETTER AND BETTER AHHHHH! And I’m calm.
4. Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life
When it is released? 7th Oct 2016 (USA)
What is it about? A quiet teenage artist Rafe Katchadorian has a wild imagination and is sick of middle school and the rules that have been put before him. Rafe and his best friend Leo have come up with a plan: break every rule in the school hand book and as you expect trouble follows.
Immediate thoughts? This is not at all aimed towards me. But I love it.
5. The Lovers and the Despot
When it is released? 18th Jun 2016 (Edinburgh International Film Festival, UK), 23rd Sep 2016 (USA)
What is it about? After the collapse of their glamorous romance, a famous director and actress are kidnapped by movie-obsessed dictator Kim Jong-il. Forced to make films in the world’s weirdest state, they get a second chance at love, but only one chance at escape.

6. Swallows and Amazons
When it is released? 19th Aug 2016 (UK), 2016 (USA)
