In a lack of latest quality trailers, I have searched deeper into new stuff and found this interesting TV movie that you can watch on iTunes. The Rock and Roll Christmas is a film, distributed by MarVista Entertainment, a small company specialized in TV movies.
The movie Three Christs was planned to be released back in 2017, but it was prolonged to the later dates. It was premiered at TIFF in Toronto in September 2017, but it will hit theaters for a world-wide public next January. The movie is based on a book The Three Christs of Ypsilanti, by Milton Rokeach and it is both comic and deeply moving, with awesome cast full of great actors.
Vertical Entertainment is one of the newer film distribution companies, it is just 7 years old, but this year they have some interesting movies and famous actors under their roof. Films like Spider in the Web with Ben Kingsley, or The Professor and the Madman with Mel Gibson and Sean Penn, but also some other movies like She's Missing, with not so famous actors. It is okay to try different genres and actors, but the newest movie didn’t turn out as they expected. It is already in the theaters, but the overall ratings are lower than expected (on IMDB it is 4.2/10).
There were no big noise around the movie Honey Boy before the premiere and it’s already, at this moments, in the theaters around the world. But, on the other side, the movie has received a bunch of prestigious rewards on the International festivals like Sundance, Hollywood or London Film Festival. Great job done by Alma Har'el (director) and Shia LaBeouf (screenplay and main role) has brought a very nice ratings for the movie!
If you have watched recent interviews with Harrison Ford you have probably noticed his “poker face” firing sneaky jokes and playing the “lone wolf” role… Well, in the movie The Call of the Wild, he has to play a similar role, so I found it like a perfect fit for his personality… The official trailer looks great and it’s a pity that it is not scheduled for Christmas time as I think it is a perfect adventure family movie for watch on a cold winter day…
The movie The Death and Life of John F. Donovan was nominated for the Best Canadian Feature Film and it has really awesome cast of famous stars with interesting story. Natalie Portman, Susan Sarandon and young Jacob Tremblay have bring this story to life and watching the trailer I thought that it was actually based on the true story.
I hope that the movie The Way Back will be good as the trailer is! It looks like a sports story, but it’s a lot more about the ordinary man fighting with himself and bad decisions from the past. As always, Ben Affleck has done his job magnificently, bring this story very close to everybody and make us wonder about our decisions and future steps in our lives.
Paramount Pictures is polishing out its newest animation movie named simply - The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run. 🙂 The movie is done differently than a TV Series, as it is completely done in the CGI motion picture. Personally, I like more the old-type animation movies, but I’m a big fan of SpongeBob and I have to give a chance for this movie.
The movie Seberg is another great one that is coming from Amazon Studios with Kirsten Stewart in the main role. The movie is based on a true story about iconic American actress Jean Seberg, who lived half her life in France, but become famous by her performance in Jean-Luc Godards’s movie Breathless and her fight for civil rights.
Next February, Sony Pictures have scheduled the premiere of the horror movie Fantasy Island, based on a popular TV Series from the ‘70s about a magical island resort. The main difference is that the new version is actually a horror adaptation with an interesting twist. The cast of the movie isn’t unknown as it is usually in horror movies and the trailer looks interesting… As I said, the premiere is scheduled for Valentine's Day, so, you can invite your partner for a romantic fantasy night in the cinema…
