London Film Festival 2016 – trailer

Published

on

 

The countdown to this year’s BFI London Film Festival is on!  With exactly 20 days to go before the opening Gala screening of Amma Asante’s ‘A United Kingdom’, tickets are being snapped up at a rate of knots.  And now the event has its own trailer.

Not that over 380 films can be squeezed into just one minute, but it captures the huge variety of mouthwatering films lined up to celebrate the LFF’s 60th anniversary.  All the big titles you’d expect are there – Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in ‘La La Land’, Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Arrival’ and Sundance favourite ‘The Birth Of A Nation’.  But blink and you’ll miss ‘Chi-Raq’, Spike Lee’s hip-hop re-working of ‘Lysistrata’:  Disney’s Ugandan-set chess drama ‘Queen Of Katwe’ and the stunning sight of a 13 year old and her golden eagle in documentary ‘The Eagle Huntress’.  And then there’s the subterranean tones of Liam Neeson in ‘A Monster Calls’…….

The excitement’s building here at Movie Marker as well. We’ll be bringing you comprehensive coverage of the LFF – more about that as the festival draws closer – but, as the opening day on the 5th of October approaches, we’ll be running a special series selecting the best of the fest.  And it starts next week!

Zachary Levi Is ‘Shazam!’ In Official Teaser Trailer

Published

on

Not content with seeing Jason Momoa’s ‘Aquaman’ steal all of the DC glory at Comic-Con this weekend. Zachary Levi is taking a much lighter approach to this often brooding universe with ‘Shazam!’, working like a charm in the fun-filled teaser trailer released by Warner Bros.

Directed by David F. Sandberg, the initial footage focuses on foster kid Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who is chosen to channel superpowers through an ancient wizard, ultimately turning into the titular character with the childish sensibilities intact. Super strength? Flying? He seems more concerned on how he’s meant to pee in his red suit. Yet he’s soon having to use his abilities for good, when faced with Mark Strong’s big bad Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

‘Shazam!’ swoops into UK cinemas in April 2019.

Fantastical Debut Trailer For ‘Aquaman’ Welcomes You To Atlantis

Published

on

Still reeling from the critical reception which greeted ‘Justice League’ last year. Director James Wan and leading man Jason Momoa are tasked with keeping Warner Bros’ DCEU above water this December with ‘Aquaman’ and after seeing the action-packed first footage straight from Comic-Con, they seem up for the challenge.

Billed as the origin story of the half-human half -Atlantean. We catch glimpses of Arthur Curry’s (Momoa) family unit, most notably Nicole Kidman’s Queen Atlanna and his feisty red-haired ally Mera (Amber Heard), merely teasing his potential king status as he clashes with half-brother Orm (Patrick Wilson), allowing Wan to dial up the underwater spectacle and throw in a goat for good measure.

We’re positively drowning in excitement already. Here’s the trailer…

First ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’ Trailer Is An Atomic Blast

Published

on

Well. If you thought there wasn’t enough monster mayhem in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 effort.

Michael Dougherty’s (Krampus) 2018 film seems awfully keen to amend this with the epic debut trailer for ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’, pitting the iconic creature against some of his greatest adversaries. Expect stunning money shots of Mothra, Rodan and a certain three-headed titan by the name King Ghidorah, whilst the human heroics are left to the Russell family consisting of Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga and Kyle Chandler.

The film roars into cinemas next May.
