The Space Between Us
Trailer Tuesday

Trailer Tuesday vol. 36: Little Men, Morgan, The Space Between Us + more!

So you wanna hear something really annoying? Suuuuure you doooo! I had prepared last week’s Trailer Tuesday down to collecting the YouTube video links, which is one of the last things I do. It was all ready in a text edit file on my computer. MY COMPUTER!! My computer then proceeded to break, and wouldn’t boot past the logo screen. Le sigh. Consequently, I have included last week’s trailers in this week’s Trailer Tuesday. Voila! Problemo, solvelo!

1. Beauty and the Beast
When it is released? 17th Mar 2017 (UK and USA)
What is it about? An adaptation of the classic fairy-tale about a monstrous prince and a young woman who fall in love.

2. Indignation
When it is released? 4th Jun 2016 (Sundance, UK), 29th Jul 2016 (USA)
What is it about? In 1951, Marcus, a working-class Jewish student from New Jersey, attends a small Ohio college, where he struggles with sexual repression and cultural disaffection, amid the ongoing Korean War.
Immediate thoughts? I love the intrigue. I want to know what happens!

3. Little Men
When it is released? 5th Aug 2016 (USA)
What is it about? A new pair of best friends have their bond tested by their parents’ battle over a dress shop lease.
Immediate thoughts? I don’t know, this seems so nice. I really like the editing, the cards, the music, the story shown, it’s lovely.

4. Ghostbusters
When it is released? 15th Jul 2016 (UK and USA)
What is it about? 30 years after Ghostbusters took the world by storm, the beloved franchise makes its long-awaited return. Director Paul Feig brings his fresh take to the supernatural comedy, joined by some of the funniest actors working today.
Immediate thoughts? OOOOOH I’m loving this!!

5. Personal Shopper
When it is released? 19th Oct 2016 (France)
What is it about? Revolves around a ghost story that takes place in the fashion underworld of Paris.
Immediate thoughts? They say any press is good press, so the fact that Personal Shopper was booed at Cannes has only made me more interested than I would have been.

6. The Witness
When it is released? 3rd Jun 2016 (USA)
What is it about? The name ‘Kitty Genovese’ became synonymous with apathy after news that she was stabbed to death while 38 witnesses did nothing. Fifty years later, her brother uncovers a lie that transformed his life, condemned a city and defined an era.
Immediate thoughts? I’d like to know more about this story, I just hope the film (from a filmmaking point of view) has a conclusive ending, even if Bill doesn’t find one.

7. Sausage Party
When it is released? 2nd Sep 2016 (UK), 12th Aug 2016 (USA)
What is it about? An animated movie about one sausage’s quest to discover the truth about his existence.
Immediate thoughts? It’s still good! …And traumatising.

8. Star Trek: Beyond
When it is released? 22nd Jul 2016 (UK and USA)
What is it about? The USS Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.
Immediate thoughts? It’s Star Trek, come on, how can you not love it (as my sister would say). I love what I’m seeing and hearing! And I love the look of that white-haired woman!

9. The Blackout Experiments
When it is released? 22nd Jul 2016 (USA)
What is it about? This documentary follows a group of people who discover the ultra-scary, psycho-sexual horror experience Blackout, and develop an obsession that hijacks their lives and blurs the line between reality and paranoid fantasy.
Immediate thoughts? Oh. my god. This looks… crazy.

10. Independence Day: Resurgence
When it is released? 23rd Jun 2016 (UK), 24th Jun 2016 (USA)
What is it about? Two decades after the first Independence Day invasion, Earth is faced with a new extra-Solar threat. But will mankind’s new space defenses be enough?
Immediate thoughts? I dislike long trailers. By long I mean anything longer than 2 minutes usually. This extended trailer is over 4 and a half minutes, and I absolutely loved the relaxed, yet still trailer-like feel. Kudos to the trailer editor.

11. Finding Dory
When it is released? 29th Jul 2016 (UK), 17th Jun 2016 (USA)
What is it about? The friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish reunites with her loved ones, and everyone learns a few things about the real meaning of family along the way.
Immediate thoughts? I wasn’t expecting to feel any different about Finding Dory from this trailer, but it almost had me in tears!

12. Seoul Searching
When it is released? May 2016 (USA)
What is it about? During the 1980’s, the Korean government created a special summer camp for “gyopo” or foreign born teenagers where they could spend their summer in Seoul to learn about their motherland. While the intentions of the program were honorable, the activities of the teens were not. The program was eventually cancelled after a few years because the government simply could not control the youth. Seoul Searching is a teen comedy and coming of age film, based on a true story about one of the summer camps that took place in 1986.
Immediate thoughts? One of Justin Chon’s latest films oooooh

13. Morgan
When it is released? 2nd Sep 2016 (USA)
What is it about? Morgan is about a corporate risk-management consultant who has to decide and determine whether or not to terminate an artificial being’s life that was made in a laboratory environment.
Immediate thoughts? Ya yaya?

14. The Space Between Us
When it is released? 19th Aug 2016 (UK and USA)
What is it about? A young man raised by scientists on Mars returns to Earth to find his father.
Immediate thoughts? I LOVE THIS!! SO MUCH MORE THAN EXPECTED!! Give it a chance, stick it out through the beginning. The concept is genius!

15. The Fundamentals of Caring
When it is released? 16th Jun 2016 (Edinburgh International Film Festival, UK), 24th Jun 2016 (USA)
What is it about? A man suffering an incredible amount of loss enrolls in a class about care-giving that changes his perspective on life.

Artwork Wednesday

Artwork Wednesday: Ghostbusters, Fantastic Beats, High Rise + more!

A beautiful New Year to you! I know I’m late to say it and I’m sick of hearing the ‘Happy New Year’ phrase by this point, but I couldn’t not say something in my first post of the year could I?!

Yes, you may have noticed there was no Movies Tag or Trailer Tuesday post this week. Not a great start to my blogging year is it? I was planning on skipping over the truth about the monstrosity that is missing my two main blog posts for the week, by teasing you with the new stuff I’ve got coming, but maybe it’s best to be honest and say: I was just too tired to write them.

Now that’s out of the way, for this week’s Artwork Wednesday I’ve got more posters than usual, and as I thought it would be a nice way to ease you into the new year, I’m releasing you from my normal rambling. Let’s get down to the good stuff… What’s the good stuff? The visuals of course!
