Let’s be honest, it’s a bit quiet out there at the moment, what with the writers and actors striking. I’m not complaining because it’s a delightful break from the relentless onslaught of rubbish that they beam into our eyeballs. It also gives us an opportunity to re-watch classics as well as watch movies from yesteryear that we’ve never considered bothering with before. Currently, I’m watching The Fly II after putting myself through The Fly for Film Club and I’ll post a Retro Review a little later.
This also gives us the opportunity to seek out trailers for movies that often slip under the radar because they aren’t superhero capers or an unwanted reimagining of a perfect movie that the talentless hacks in Hollywood want to ruin for propaganda purposes. So below are five movie trailers that I’ve stumbled across lately that look interesting for one reason or another. Here goes.
Randy (Johnny Berchtold) is perfectly content fading into the background. But when his coworker Benson (Kyle Gallner) goes on a sudden and violent rampage leaving a trail of destruction in his wake, Randy is forced to face his fears and confront his troubled past to survive.
A student at Oxford University finds himself drawn into the world of a charming and aristocratic classmate, who invites him to his eccentric family’s sprawling estate for a summer never to be forgotten.
Amy (Madi Monroe) and Mike (Marlon Kazadi) uncover a centuries-old secret when they decide to watch an exclusive film reel. Before they know it, their town has been turned to the undead before their eyes. The duo must track down an infamous filmmaker (Dan Akroyd) and navigate a town of hungry zombies to break the curse before it’s too late.
T.I.M. follows Abi, a robotics engineer, as she moves to the countryside to work for a tech firm that’s developing an A.I. manservant: T.I.M. She is hoping the new job will be a fresh start, allowing her to rebuild her relationship with her husband, Paul, following his affair, and start a family. As a perk of the job, Abi is given her own prototype T.I.M. She’s thrilled. After all, they’re meant to change your life.
Following the brutal murder of a young real estate agent, a hardened detective attempts to uncover the truth in a case where nothing is as it seems, and, by doing so, dismantles the illusions in his own life.
So what do you think, any of those tickle your fancy? Personally, The Passenger and Reptile look right up my street, and Zombie Land looks like it could be a bit of mindless fun. Let me know what you think in the comments section, you magnificent bastards.
