Trailer-Mr.Holmes

IMG_4492-0.PNG

Here is the first trailer for the highly anticipated ‘Mr.Holmes. 

Mr.Holmes sees Sir Ian McKellen take up the mantel of Sherlock. 

In 1947, the world famous sleuth has retired to a remote Sussex farmhouse, living in relative anonymity with only his housekeeper Mrs Munro and her young son Roger for company. Cantankerous, demanding and frustrated with the mis-representation of him in Watson’s best-selling novels, he diverts his attention to an unsolved case.  As the mystery deepens, Sherlock tries desperately to recall the events of 30 years ago that ultimately led to his retirement.

MR HOLMES will be released in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on June 19th.

Brosnan backs Idris Elba as Bond

IMG_4441.JPG

After the Sony hack a few months ago, it was revealed that Exec Amy Pascal was interested with the idea of Idris Elba (Luther, The Wire) take up the mantel of James Bond when/if Daniel Craig decides to hand over the keys to his Aston Martin.

Daily mail readers went in to melt down about a black man having a licence to kill.

Now, former 007 Pierce Brosnan has chimed in on the debate. Speaking to the radio times he said:

“Yeah, Idris Elba would make a good Bond. Colin Salmon also. May the best man get the job and may Daniel bring home the bacon for as long as he wants.”

Fans of the franchise may well remember that long before Daniel Craig was announced, Colin Salmon was the bookies favourite to take on the role.

Salmon has already appeared as Charles Robinson in three Bond films – Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough and Die Another Day.

Elba has stated that he would be interested in the role, were it offered to him. I personally would love to see him take on the role. Colin Salmon would also be a great choice, but I think him playing such a central character in the past may go against him.

Given the way Skyfall explored a lot of Bond’s past, I don’t think Daniel Craig is ready to go just yet.

The 24th Bond film ‘Spectre’ is currently in Production and is released on the October 23rd.

Michelle Gomez returning to Doctor Who

IMG_4440.JPG

Here’s some Doctor Who news that won’t shock anyone, Michelle Gomez will be reprising her role as the master “Missy” in series 9. She joins Peter Capaldi (The Doctor) and Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald) for the opening two-part story.

Michelle Gomez said: “Things have been a little beige since I left Missy behind, so I’m delighted to be putting my lippie back on. I’m positively dying to see The Doctor again!”

The opening episodes have been written by head writer, Steven Moffat and are titled The Magician’s Apprenticeand The Witch’s Familiar,

Steven Moffat added: “Everybody hide – Michelle Gomez as Missy was an instant hit last year, so she’s straight back to plague the Doctor and Clara in the series opener. But what brings her back into their lives is the last thing they’d expect.”

It was also announced that Jemma Redgrave will be reprising her role as Kate Lethbridge-Stewart.

The series is expected to launch August 29th.

Teaser trailer-Heroes reborn

IMG_4365.JPG

Last night Americans gathered to celebrate a game called ‘soup or bowl’. From what I understand, it’s an event where the nation look at pictures and have to guess if it’s a picture of some soup, or a picture of a bowl. During the ad-break NBC played a teaser trailer for Heroes:Reborn.

The teaser trailer does what it’s meant to do, tease. We start by seeing returning character Noah Bennet, played by Jack Coleman. We also got out first glimpse at Zachary Levi’s character.

Like most of you reading, I loved the first series of Heroes, but the show quickly took a nose dive there. I hope some magic can be reignited into the franchise.

Trailer-Wild Card

IMG_4341.JPG

It’s no secret that I love a Statham movie. So, I’m ridiculously excited for Wild Card.

Jason Statham plays Nick Wild, a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem. When a friend is beaten by a sadistic thug, Nick strikes back, only to find out the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss. Suddenly Nick is plunged into the criminal underworld, chased by enforcers and wanted by the mob. Having raised the stakes, Nick has one last play to change his fortunes…and this time, it’s all or nothing. From two-time Academy® Award-winning writer William Goldman (Best Original Screenplay, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, 1969; Best Adapted Screenplay, All the President’s Men, 1976).

The film also stars Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes), Michael Angarano (Almost Famous), Anne Heche (6 days, 7 nights), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) Sofia Vergara (Modern Family), and Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games).

WILD CARD is out in cinemas March 20

Deadpool starts shooting in March

IMG_4294.JPG

Fans have been waiting years to see Ryan Reynolds reprise his role as the merch with the mouth, now we’re one step closer. He and director Tim Miller are in pre-production for Deadpool. The movie finally starts shooting in Canada, in March.

The movie has booked two months at Vancouver’s North Shore Studios, although it isn’t known if the production will shoot in any other locations around the city.

I can’t wait, I’ve always thought that Ryan Reynolds was born to play two roles, Wally West AKA The Flash and, Wade Wilson AKA Deadpool.

I really hope the film can live up to my expectations. Reynolds and Miller has stated they wanted this to be R-rated (18 in proper money). But the pair eventually made a compromise with Fox, who wanted a PG-13 (12A in proper money).

The film will also star T.J. Miller (big hero 6) and Ed Skrein (the upcoming Statham-less Transporter movie).
Deadpool is set for a February 2016 release and will be part of the wider X-Men universe.

Trailer-John Wick

IMG_4292.PNG

Keanu Reeves has often been criticised for his lack of “range” however, when you need a good-looking moody guy who can kick ass, he’s the only one you call.
Below is the first trailer for his upcoming movie ‘John Wick’.

When a retired hit man is forced back into action by a brutal Russian mobster, he hunts down his adversaries with the ruthlessness that made him a crime underworld legend in John Wick; a stylish tale of revenge and redemption.

After the sudden death of his beloved wife, John Wick (Keanu Reeves) receives one last gift from her, a beagle puppy named Daisy, and a note imploring him not to forget how to love. But John’s mourning is interrupted when his 1969 Boss Mustang catches the eye of sadistic thug Iosef Tarasov (Alfie Allen) who breaks into his house and steals it, beating John unconscious and leaving Daisy dead. Unwittingly, they have just reawakened one of the most brutal assassins the underworld has ever seen.

John’s search for his stolen vehicle takes him to a side of New York City that tourists never see, a hyper-real, super-secret criminal community, where John Wick was once the baddest guy of all.

I am ridiculously excited for this film, I love a moody Keanu.

JOHN WICK opens nationwide across the UK on 10th April 2015.

Russell T Davies wants to write a Doctor Who movie

IMG_4291.JPG

Former Doctor Who scribe Russell T Davies has ruled out returning to write another TV episode, he would however be interested in writing a Doctor Who movie.

During an interview on BBC Radio 2, promoting his new set of shows for ch4, he said: “I think it should be in the cinemas immediately. It would be glorious. Imagine queuing up at the cinema to go and see a Doctor Who film.”

Asked if he would write it: “Yes please. If we could get the lawyers and contracts flying now. You know I would do that because I think there’s a big leap to be made.”

I would love to see RTD return to the Whoniverse, maybe one day we could see he and Moffat team up to write a big screen adventure.
