Cat picture is way relevant. So why am I posting trailers today? Because tomorrow night I’ll be out watching Prometheus, that’s why. I’ll do my best to get a review up right after I get home but considering that won’t be until 3AM there’s a chance I might just leave it until the next day seeing as I’m going to Sweden on June 2nd. So I figured I’d post a couple of trailers today. First up will be Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables, followed by Steve Carell and Keira Knightley starring Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World. After that something retro. Enjoy!
So here’s a trailer for Les Miserables. It’s from tom Hooper who directed a very successful piece of Oscar bait called The Kings Speech. Which I’ve still not seen because I’m a bad person. It’s probably great and all sorts so I figure this might be too. Also it’s good to see Hugh Jackman doing a musical again. You should see the stage performance version of Oklahoma with him in it. I saw it just after finding out he was cast as Wolverine in the X-Men films. That did not fill me with confidence at the time.
Next up is Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World. It’s a film about the last days of Earth before everyone is wiped out by a 70 mile wide meteorite. Steve Carell wants to go see the one that got away before he dies and gains the help of his neighbour played by Keira Knightley. I’ll hazard a guess that they end up falling for each other after some form of disappointment. Whatever, looks like a good film with Carell making decidedly less stupid noises than he usually does. that’s a good thing.
For my retro trailer… well I was gonna post the Alien trailer what with me seeing Prometheus tomorrow but i already did that. It was actually the first retro trailer I posted. So here’s the trailer for Aliens! This was back when James Cameron made films with stories and characters that, largely, he had created or developed rather than just picking characters off a shelf and saying “that’ll do”.
I dislike Cameron’s last 2 films…
So obviously I have the review for Prometheus coming up, can’t wait to see that. Following that though I’ll have a review for Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives, a slightly different film. Not sure when I’ll get that done because time is limited before my excursion to Stockholm. It may end up being written when I return late next week. I’ve picked out the film that will be review number 150, not saying what. That may come right in the middle of my marathon of Batman reviews. I can assure you it’ll be quite a break from norm for that week.
