New ‘IT’ Trailer is Sufficiently Terrifying
The more we see from IT, the better this adaptation looks. Warner Brothers released the second full trailer for their Stephen King adaptation and it’s clear that they’re going for full terror. Somehow, this trailer manages to be even creepier than their previous one, which is saying something because the initial trailer was downright petrifying. We also finally get a little taste of how Bill Skarsgard will be portraying King’s legendary clown as we hear him speak for the first time. Hopefully, the movie itself will be as nightmare inducing as the trailers have been. If they stick close to the book, that shouldn’t be a problem. IT opens in theaters everywhere on September 8.
First ‘Suburbicon’ Trailer Promises Madcap Crime from Clooney and Coens
Anytime George Clooney and Coen brothers collaborate, magic seems to happen. Suburbicon looks like a continuation of this trend, even if the collaboration is a little different this time. Clooney directs from a script co-written by the Coens, and things seem appropriately madcap and wild. Matt Damon stars as a man whose life is disrupted thanks to dealings with the mob. After his wife is murdered, his sister-in-law (Julianne Moore) comes to stay with him, which doesn’t at all deter to the mafia who is still trying to get what’s owed to him. Co-starring Oscar Isaac, Suburbicon looks like one part suburban satire and one part zany crime comedy. From what we’ve seen so far, we’re all in. Suburbicon hits theaters on October 27.
Final ‘Detroit’ Trailer is Harrowing
With just one week left to go before Detroit hits wide-release, a final trailer reveals even more from Kathryn Bigelow’s latest effort. Set during the tumultuous Detroit riots, the film follows the harrowing events that transpired at the Algiers motel. The film looks to be another masterpiece of gritty realism from the director of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, taking you deep into the tension that surrounded the riots for an unparalleled examination of race in America. Detroit opens in select cities on July 28 and hits theaters everywhere on August 4.
Warwick Davis Reunites with Ron Howard for New ‘Star Wars’
Newly crowned director of the Han Solo solo movie, Ron Howard, who recently took over the project from directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord, announced yesterday that Warwick Davis has joined the cast in an undisclosed role. Davis is a familiar face among the sets of Star Wars movies, having appeared in Return of the Jedi, The Phantom Menace, The Force Awakens, and Rogue One. This also marks a reunion between Howard and Davis, who worked together on Willow three decades ago. Responding to a question asked by a fan on Twitter, Howard also said that he was happy fans were still asking about a sequel to the cult-favorite fantasy, which was also a collaboration between the director and LucasFilm. Perhaps Howard’s work on the new Star Wars will inspire the director to return to that magical world at a later date.
