Bryan Singer’s latest X-trilogy is nearing a conclusion with X-Men: Apocalypse now only seven weeks shy of its May 27 premiere. And as that date fast approaches, we don’t expect to see too much new footage beforehand. That said, the marketing team is still at work, and the new international trailer did offer a few new clips…
The title of Prometheus 2 has been officially announced by director Ridley Scott in a recent interview. The sequel will be named Alien: Paradise Lost. Check out the interview below, which also contains a bit of news on Blade Runner 2.
I have been following The Counselor with a lot of anticipation since it was announced that Pulitzer prize winning author Cormac Mccarthy had penned the screenplay. When Ridley Scott was announced as director I was even more excited. The second trailer for the upcoming thriller is out now and boy, does it look every bit as promising as I hoped:
The trailer is just about as vague as the synopsis, which has me both intrigued and overjoyed: Per IMDb, The Counselor stars Michael Fassbender as “a lawyer [who] finds himself in over his head when he gets involved in drug trafficking.” We don’t need to know more – too many trailers spoil the fun by showing the best action sequence or the funniest joke in the previews. Here we get just enough of a tease to pull us in, though the names attached are sufficient enough for me. This should be good.
The film marks the second time in 2013 that Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender will appear on screen together. You can check out the other with this 12 Years a Slave trailer.
The first trailer for 12 Years a Slave has arrived and let’s just say, this movie looks amazing.
Chiwetel Ejiofor, who has been at the top of many people’s list for Black Panther (speaking of, have you checked out our Justice League Casting Couch?), stars as Solomon Northrup. Based on his own memoirs of the same name, the film follows Northrup’s journey from being a freed man living in New York to being tricked by a fake job offer and sold into slavery.
If that’s not the crappiest thing that could happen to a person, I don’t know what is.
Joining Ejiofor is a star-studded cast including Brad Pitt, Alfre Woodard, Michael K. Williams (Chalky White in Boardwalk Empire), Paul Giamatti, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Dano, and Michael Fassbender.
12 Years a Slave marks the third time Michael Fassbender and director Steve McQueen have worked together. McQueen has been nominated and won many awards for his previous work but with this cast combined with a premiere date of December 26th, it appears as McQueen and company might be gunning for the big prize come Oscar time.
