House of Gucci, King Richard, The Card Counter, Rare Beasts, Ghostbusters: Afterlife

House of Gucci     HD720p 31MB
Biographical crime drama - though it looks like it's also a comedy - about the family empire behind the Italian fashion house of Gucci. Spanning three decades of love, betrayal, decadence, revenge, and ultimately murder, we see what a name means, what it’s worth, and how far a family will go for control. At the centre of the movie is the story of Patrizia Reggiani (Lady Gaga), who was tried and convicted of orchestrating the assassination of her ex-husband and former head of the Gucci fashion house Maurizio Gucci (Adam Driver). Al Pacino, Jared Leto, Salma Hayek, Camille Cottin, Jack Huston and Jeremy Irons are also part of the cast.
The second trailer for a Ridley Scott (All the Money in the World, American Gangster, Hannibal) movie in the last ten days. He continues to work like clockwork.

King Richard     HD720p 108MB
Biopic that follows the journey of Richard Williams (Will Smith), an undeterred father instrumental in raising two of the most extraordinarily gifted athletes of all time, who will end up changing the sport of tennis forever. Driven by a clear vision of their future and using unconventional methods, Richard has a plan that will take Venus and Serena Williams from the streets of Compton, California to the global stage as legendary icons.
My first reaction was to wonder if there shouldn't be a biopic that focuses on the two sisters, instead one about the father. But I admit that I know nothing about Richard Williams.

The Card Counter     HD720p 94MB
Trailer for the latest guilt-ridden drama written and directed by Paul Schrader (American Gigolo, Cat People, First Reformed) in which redemption is the long game. A revenge thriller that tells the story of an ex-military interrogator (Oscar Isaac) turned gambler haunted by the ghosts of his past decisions. Tiffany Haddish, Tye Sheridan and Willem Dafoe are also part of the cast.
Will take part in the official competition in Venice in September. The official festival lineup was released earlier this week.

Rare Beasts     HD720p 82MB
Darkly comedic "anti-romcom" about Mandy (Billie Piper), a nihilistic young writer and mother who, while navigating her dysfunctional family and misogynistic workplace, falls for Pete (Leo Bill), a traditionalist searching for ‘restored’ male identity. David Thewlis and Kerry Fox are also part of the cast, Lily James has a cameo. Piper also wrote the script and directed.
Depressing. But also often very, very funny.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife     HD720p 101MB
A new trailer for the delayed Ghostbusters re-boot. When a single mom and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind. Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace and Paul Rudd are part of the cast. Members of the original movie are expected to make cameo appearances. Directed by Jason Reitman (Juno, Up in the Air, Tully), son of Ivan Reitman, director of the first two films.
Still a strong emphasis on kids and the "scary" aspects, and not on humour.

Dune, The Last Duel, Language Lessons, Nitram, Cryptozoo

Dune     HD720p 137MB   HD1080p 242MB
A new, extended trailer for Denis Villeneuve's take on Frank Herbert's novel. It tells the story of Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet), a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence - a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential - only those who can conquer their fear will survive. Also part of the extensive cast are Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Chang Chen, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa and Javier Bardem.
Still looks pretty epic. Now scheduled for a fall theatrical release. And will be available on some version of HBO Max October 22nd.

The Last Duel     HD720p 96MB
Trailer for the latest movie from Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, Robin Hood), a tale of betrayal & vengeance set against the brutality of 14th century France. It tells the story of a duel between French Knight Jean de Carrouges (Matt Damon) and his former squire Jacques LeGris (Adam Driver) which began when Carrouges's wife Marguerite (Jodie Comer) claimed she was sexually assaulted by LeGris. After a public trial, French King Charles VI (Alex Lawther) declared a duel to the death. Ben Affleck, Marton Csokas and Harriet Walter are also part of the cast. The screenplay based on a book was written by Affleck, Damon and Nicole Holofcener.
I suspect they won't speak a lot of French.

Language Lessons     HD720p 80MB
Comedic drama about a Spanish teacher and her student develop an unexpected friendship. When Adam’s (Mark Duplass) husband surprises him with weekly Spanish lessons, he’s unsure about where or how this new element will fit into his well-structured life. However, when an unexpected tragedy turns his life upside down, Adam decides to carry on with the lessons and develops a complicated emotional bond with his Spanish teacher, Cariño (Natalie Morales). It's also directed by Morales (Plan B) and she and Duplass also developed the script.
Already the second interesting movie from Morales this year.

Nitram     HD720p 23MB
Trailer for the latest intense drama directed by Justin Kurzel (True History of the Kelly Gang, Macbeth, Snowtown). Nitram (Caleb Landry-Jones) lives with his mother (Judy Davis) and father (Anthony LaPaglia) in suburban Australia in the Mid 1990s. He lives a life of isolation and frustration at never being able to fit in. That is until he unexpectedly finds a close friend in a reclusive heiress, Helen (Essie Davis). However when that friendship meets its tragic end, and Nitram's loneliness and anger grow, he begins a slow descent into a nightmare that culminates in the most nihilistic and heinous of acts.
I don't really think it's a "spoiler", but in case you don't want to know about the background of the movie, don't hover or click on this link. While it didn't win any prizes, it was still very well received in Cannes.

Cryptozoo     HD720p 82MB
Unusual animated movie that follows cryptozookeepers through a richly-drawn hallucinatory world as they struggle to capture a baku (a legendary dream-eating hybrid creature) and begin to wonder if they should display these rare beasts in the confines of a zoo, or if these mythical creatures should remain hidden and unknown. Voices are provided by Lake Bell, Zoe Kazan, Michael Cera, Louisa Krause and Peter Stormare.
Was very well received at festivals. Alternative trailer from Australia: HD1080p 40MB.

Titane, Turning Red, Naked Singularity, Memoria, The Lost Leonardo

Titane     HD720p 71MB
Dialogue-free trailer for this hard to categorise movie from France that is meant to shock and surprise. Following a series of unexplained crimes, a father is reunited with the son who has been missing for 10 years. It's directed by Julia Ducournau who previously made waves with her cannibal horror movie Raw.
Controversial as it may be, it was awarded the Golden Palm last weekend in Cannes.

Turning Red     HD720p 70MB
First trailer for the latest Diney/Pixar animated movie to be in theatres next March. It's about a 13-year-old who suddenly "poofs" into a giant red panda when she gets too excited (which is practically ALWAYS). Sandra Oh voices Mei Lee's protective, if not slightly overbearing mother, Ming, who is never far from her daughter-an unfortunate reality for the teenager. Written and directed by Domee Shi who won an Oscar for her short Bao.

Naked Singularity     HD720p 34MB
Crime thriller with comedic elements about a promising young NYC public defender (John Boyega) whose idealism is beginning to crack under the daily injustices of the very justice system he's trying to make right. Doubting all he has worked for and seeing signs of the universe collapsing all around him, he is pulled into a dangerous high-stakes drug heist by an unpredictable former client (Olivia Cooke) in an effort to beat the broken system at its own game. Bill Skarsgård, Ed Skrein and Tim Blake Nelson are also part of the cast.
There's a lot going on in this trailer.

Memoria     HD720p 72MB
Trailer for the latest meditative drama written and directed by previous Golden Palm winner Apichatpong Weerasethakul (Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives). Ever since being startled by a loud ‘bang’ at daybreak, Jessica (Tilda Swinton) is unable to sleep. In Bogotá to visit her sister, she befriends Agnès (Jeanne Balibar), an archaeologist studying human remains discovered within a tunnel under construction. Jessica travels to see Agnès at the excavation site. In a small town nearby, she encounters a fish scaler, Hernán. They share memories by the river. As the day comes to a close, Jessica is awakened to a sense of clarity.

The Lost Leonardo     HD720p 86MB
Documentary about the story behind Salvator Mundi, the most expensive painting ever sold at $450 million, claimed to be a long-lost masterpiece by Leonardo da Vinci. From the moment it is purchased from a shady New Orleans auction house, and its buyers discover masterful brushstrokes beneath its cheap restoration, the fate of the Salvator Mundi is driven by an insatiable quest for fame, money and power. But as its price soars, so do questions about its authenticity.
One of those stories that are hard to believe. One where you don't know if you should laugh or cry.

Crime drama in which Beckett (John David Washington), an American tourist in Greece, finds himself at the center of a dangerous political conspiracy – and on the run for his life. Alicia Vikander, Boyd Holbrook and Vicky Krieps are also part of the cast.
I hope Vikander won't mind if I mention that, with regard to the opening scene of the trailer, I know exactly where she is. She's standing above the ruins of the Apollo Temple in Delphi, the one that housed the oracle.
Will start streaming on Netflix August 13th.

Jolt     HD720p 35MB
Action movie about a sardonically-funny bouncer (Kate Beckinsale) with a painful secret: Due to a lifelong, rare neurological disorder, she experiences sporadic rage-filled, murderous impulses that can only be stopped when she shocks herself with a special electrode device.

Lin-Manuel Miranda contributes a few songs.

Mandibles     HD720p 67MB
US Trailer version for the latest absurd comedy written and directed, photographed and edited by Quentin Dupieux (Deerskin, Rubber, Wrong). When simple-minded friends Jean-Gab and Manu find a giant fly trapped in the boot of a car, they decide to train it in the hope of making a ton of cash.
Difficult to truly measure, but it looks a bit sillier than his previous films. But as usual, it's only little over an hour long. A recent article/interview with Dupieux.

Rufus Buck has his own fearsome crew, including “Treacherous” Trudy Smith (Regina King) and Cherokee Bill (LaKeith Stanfield), and they are not a group that knows how to lose.

So far puts a lot of emphasis on style and shootings.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings     HD720p 80MB
Second trailer for the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's about skilled martial artist Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) who was trained at a young age to be an assassin by his father Wenwu (Tony Chiu-Wai Leung), who left in an attempt to create a normal life for himself in San Francisco.

Mild-mannered government agent James Preble (Kentucker Audley) travels to a remote farmhouse to audit the dreams of Arabella "Bella" Isadora (Penny Fuller), an eccentric, aging artist. There he finds Bella's vast VHS archive, which contains a lifetime of dreams.

Maybe even a little too whimsical, but it sure looks very visually inventive. Received very favourable reviews at festivals.

But making it there won’t be easy, after her car is stolen, and the clock is ticking on her plan to tie up loose ends with friends and family. Accompanied by her younger self (Cailee Spaeny), Liza embarks on a hilarious journey across Los Angeles, running into an eclectic cast of characters. The list of cameo appearances includes Helen Hunt, Olivia Wilde, Fred Armisen, Lamorne Morris, Bradley Whitford, Nick Kroll, Whitney Cummings and Colin Hanks. It's alsao co-written and directed by Lister-Jones and her husband Daryl Wein.
Looks like a very pleasant way to end things.

Pig     HD720p 90MB
Thriller drama about a truffle hunter (Nicolas Cage) who lives alone in the Oregonian wilderness who must return to his past in Portland in search of his beloved foraging pig after she is kidnapped. Alex Wolff and Adam Arkin are also part of the cast.
At this point it's really, really difficult to say if we are meant to take this movie seriously, or if Cage is kind of parodying himself. But I feel compelled to share the trailer.

Summer of Soul (...Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised)     HD720p 51MB
Documentary that is part music film, part historical record created around an epic event that celebrated Black history, culture and fashion.

With a target on her back, she has only one chance to survive: Reunite with her mother and her lethal associates, The Librarians (Angela Bassett, Michelle Yeoh, Carla Gugino). Paul Giamatti is also part of the cast.
What's not to like? Will start streaming on Netflix July 14th.
There was an earlier, slightly longer trailer for which I'm unable to provide a direct download link for the English version. But if you would like to listen to a version dubbed into German, or Russian.

The Eyes of Tammy Faye     HD720p 89MB
Comedic drama that provides an intimate look at the extraordinary rise, fall and redemption of televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker (Jessica Chastain). In the 1970s and 80s, Tammy Faye and her husband, Jim Bakker (Andrew Garfield), rose from humble beginnings to create the world’s largest religious broadcasting network and theme park, and were revered for their message of love, acceptance and prosperity. Tammy Faye was legendary for her indelible eyelashes, her idiosyncratic singing, and her eagerness to embrace people from all walks of life. However, it wasn’t long before financial improprieties, scheming rivals, and scandal toppled their carefully constructed empire. Directed by Michael Showalter (The Big Sick, The Lovebirds, The Baxter).
The concept of a "televangelist" is very foreign to me. But this looks quite funny and moving.

tick, tick...Boom!     HD1080p 26MB
Teaser trailer for this adaptation of the autobiographical musical by Jonathan Larson, the creator of Rent. The film follows Jon (Andrew Garfield), a young theater composer who’s waiting tables at a New York City diner in 1990 while writing what he hopes will be the next great American musical.

Will be shown in select theatres and start streaming on Netflix in the fall.

With less than a month until the birth of their first child, Jackie (Jess Weixler) and Elliot (Joshua Leonard) embark on a madcap odyssey of self-discovery in an attempt to rid themselves of the inherited dysfunction of their own upbringings. It's also directed by Leonard, and co-written by the two leads.
Probably especially appreciated by viewers who have kids.

As he fights to find the truth about Mae's disappearance, he uncovers a violent conspiracy. Thandiwe Newton, Daniel Wu and Cliff Curtis are also part of the cast. Written and directed by Lisa Joy, co-creator of the "Westworld" TV series. A piece of trivia that became more relevant after I've watched the trailer, she's the sister-in-law of Christopher Nolan.
Looks very promising. Will start streaming on HBOMax August 20th.

The Duke     HD720p 93MB
Comedic drama from the UK that tells the true story of Kempton Bunton, a 60-year old taxi driver (Jim Broadbent), who in 1961 stole Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. It was the first (and remains the only) theft in the Gallery’s history. He sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government invested more in care for the elderly - he had long campaigned for pensioners to receive free television. Helen Mirren plays his wife, Fionn Whitehead, Matthew Goode and Anna Maxwell Martin are also part of the cast. Directed by Roger Michell (Notting Hill, Morning Glory, Hyde Park on Hudson).
I believe that's what you call a crowd-pleaser.

It's about a family (Gael Garcia Bernal, Vicky Krieps) on a tropical holiday who discover that the secluded beach where they are relaxing for a few hours is somehow causing them to age rapidly ... reducing their entire lives to a single day.

Despite the fact that this is apparently based on a video game, this still looks quite fun.

Plan B     HD1080p 24MB
Comedy that follows a straight-laced high school student (Kuhoo Verma) and her slacker best friend (Victoria Moroles) who, after a regrettable first sexual encounter, have 24 hours to hunt down a Plan B pill in America's heartland. Directed by actress Natalie Morales.
Seems clearly inspired by Booksmart. Which isn't a bad thing. Will start streaming on Hulu May 28th.

Siberia     HD720p 88MB
Psychological (horror) thriller directed by Abel Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant, The Addiction, King of New York). It's about Clint (Willem Dafoe) who tends bar at a snowbound roadhouse whose patrons speak a language he doesn’t understand, and things may not be what they seem. Desperate for answers, he drives a sled team to a nearby cave, but finds no peace. Are the spirits that confront him mere figments of his imagination - or will they slowly tear his body and soul to pieces?
Festival reviews are very mixed.

Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard     HD720p 48MB

As Bryce is driven over the edge by his two most dangerous protectees, the trio get in over their heads in a global plot and soon find that they are all that stand between Europe and a vengeful and powerful madman (Antonio Banderas). Again directed by Patrick Hughes.
