This movie's release date has been pushed ugh to January ugh ugh! It was riveting to me, anyway. Not everyone was entertained by watching Tom Hardy's Locke drive in a car, talking on the phone for 85 minutes, but I was! The trailer for this movie looks like a cross between a Liam Neeson potboiler and a s film noir in which McConaughey plays a sucker who murders the new husband Jason Clarke of his ex-wife Hathaway.
That's probably overly complimentary, given the pushed date and the January of it all? But I have a low bar for this sort of movie, personally, so if you're like me, let's go. This movie is an American remake of Gerardo Naranjo's well-reviewed Mexican thriller of the same name.
Movies on TV this week Sept. 1 - 7, 12222: John Wayne in ‘The Searchers’ and more
Gloria — who used to live in Mexico, but now lives in Los Angeles — goes home to visit her best friend Suzu Cristina Rodlo , she's kidnapped by a drug cartel and has to do their bidding in order to stay alive. Hint: Their bidding is illegal and gets her into trouble with US law enforcement! Twilight 's Catherine Hardwicke — who is so skilled, and was sounding the alarm about Hollywood's gender bias behind the camera in — is the director, and Gina Rodriguez plays Gloria.
In other words, hell yes! I know I will be going to see Miss Bala the first day it opens, not only because the trailer looks like it kicks ass but because I want to show support for it. Writer-director Dan Gilroy, who was behind the dark drama Nightcrawler , is not saying much yet about what Velvet Buzzsaw is about.
Nor is Netflix, which is releasing this movie after its Sundance premiere in January. But here's the spare logline: " Velvet Buzzsaw is a thriller set in the contemporary art world scene of Los Angeles, where big money artists and mega-collectors pay a high price when art collides with commerce.
Now we know everything, don't we? Here's what we do know: The movie stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Gilroy's wife Rene Russo, who also costarred to say the least in Nightcrawler. He also told Business Insider that he originally wanted to release it around Halloween, and "that will give you some indication what kind of movie it is.
Art world horror? Hans Petter Moland directs the American remake of his own Norwegian thriller, In Order of Disappearance , in which a snow plow driver here, Liam Neeson takes revenge on a drug gang that killed his son. Laura Dern costars as his wife, and I do hope she gets things to do — the female leads in Neeson movies usually don't!
This trailer looks like good fun , but as readers of previous editions of this list know, I am a sucker for a Neeson thriller, no matter how bad. And The Commuter truly did test me, and yet here I am again, excited! On second thought, maybe Adam should have written this blurb. So those are good things already! It seems from the one-sentence logline that the agent is getting the rookie into some shady business "an intriguing and controversial business proposition" , but we will have to wait to see.
High Flying Bird is the second movie Soderbergh has shot on an iPhone last year's Unsane was the first. And this is another Netflix movie get used to it.
After the original Lego Movie , which was so brilliant, the Lego movies have been a bit…not great. I have to whisper so my kids don't hear me saying that about Ninjago — but honestly, outside of Lego-obsessed kids and their beleaguered parents, who knows what Ninjago is? I question that choice! This time, Lego Duplo invaders from space will try to destroy Bricksburg. Let's hope it's awesome. I had to!
Henson in the lead role instead. In her frustration, Ali visits a psychic — played by Erykah Badu!

Also, director Christopher Landon said that before the first movie — which he tried to make for 10 years — came out, he already knew what a second one would be. At the time, he said it would explain why Tree Jessica Rothe got stuck in a time loop and does again, it seems.
I'm sloooowwwwwwlllllllly psyching myself into watching it before Happy Death Day 2U comes out, and the clever trailer for it is further convincing me. Warning: Don't watch that trailer if you haven't seen the first one and care about spoilers, because Tree says how it ends. Mapplethorpe is the first narrative feature by the acclaimed documentarian Ondi Timoner, who made Dig! After Mapplethorpe's death, the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati was charged with obscenity for displaying his career retrospective, but that isn't portrayed in this film.
This movie received mixed reviews after it was at the Tribeca Film Festival in spring , but it seems notable for its subject matter and that it may be released unrated because of its sexual imagery and content. Oh, and it's interesting to me that Eliza Dushku and her brother Nate Dushku produced this movie! The end of Avengers: Infinity War was so desperately bleak, with half the universe turning to ash and no clear sense of how the remaining heroes could ever put things right again.
As everything was literally falling apart, Nick Fury Samuel L. Comics fans know Captain Marvel, aka Carol Danvers, as one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel comics canon. The trailers betray little sense of how they will apply that sensibility to a cosmic action spectacular, but they did convince Annette Bening to play an alien, which is a pretty good start. As is Julianne Moore's performance in the title role. At the premiere in Toronto, Lelio explained that he had a meeting with Moore, and she kept talking about how much she loved Gloria , and asked whether he was considering remaking it.

He said something like I'm not putting quotation marks around this because it's just from my memory , Well, I would if you would star in it. And here we are. In Gloria Bell , an upper-middle-class Los Angeles woman with adult children goes to discos because she loves to dance, and would also like to meet a man.
And she does! Arnold: He's played by John Turturro, who after playing character roles for years, is a surprisingly appealing romantic lead. Everyone is good in this movie, from Brad Garrett, who plays Gloria's ex-husband, to Holland Taylor, who plays her mother, to Michael Cera as her son — and sometimes he annoys me! Gloria Bell isn't a mystery of any kind, but I don't want to spoil a single thing that happens in it, because you should experience it yourself.
Go see Gloria Bell! Margin Call director J. Chandor cowrote the script with Mark Boal who wrote the original screenplay, back when Kathryn Bigelow was going to direct this movie. This movie has gone through many incarnations , but now it will actually exist on Netflix, no less. I don't know if this movie is going to be good, but I do know it's the reason we know about Affleck's back tattoo. Bless his heart, as Jennifer Garner would say! Haley Lu Richardson so good in The Edge of Seventeen and Cole Sprouse costar in Five Feet Apart , in which they both play teens with cystic fibrosis who can't get too close lest one make the other sick.
Who knew? Much like my cowriter — and friend! Get Out was a perfect movie perfectly timed to its moment, so it was going to be a tall order for any follow-up to match it, but I kept getting goosebumps writing this entry, which I take as a very good sign.
The "New Woman" Revised
From what the internet has gleaned , Captive State is the story of what things are like 10 years after an alien invasion, specifically in Chicago. John Goodman plays a cop who has gone along with the aliens and their insidious messaging, and Ashton Sanders Chiron in the middle section of Moonlight plays Gabriel, who tries to resist the aliens' conditioning and joins a rebel organization.
Captive State has a clever viral marketing campaign , and the teaser trailers make it look so good. My fingers are crossed. Yeah, no. Vandevere and a circus ringmaster named Max Medici. Also Eva Green is a trapeze artist, because of course she is. With Pet Sematary , the plot of the King novel and the Mary Lambert—directed movie is creepy as hell. A doctor and his family two kids, one cat move to a big house in Maine, right next to a dangerous road that semitrucks use to speed. Nothing good comes of this!
The remake of this new adaptation has had a long road to your screen, and I do get the appeal of the story. The original version of the Hellboy movie franchise — directed by Guillermo del Toro, starring Ron Perlman, and based on the Mike Mignola comics — came to an abrupt end in February when del Toro tweeted that his hopes for a third movie were dead forever. Marshall directed The Descent and also the widely derided, except by me , Doomsday in — so yay! Jordan Sanders, a stressed-out tech executive Regina Hall , wakes up on the morning of a big presentation as her year-old self Martin.
