Movie Trailer Roundup - Aug 16th

1. Dolemite Is My Name

2. The Kill Team

The last thing I expected A24 to make was a war movie, but they might be the perfect people to tell the story about the Maywand District murders. This stars Nat Wolff (Paper Towns) and Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) with Dan Krauss directing/writing/producing.

3. 10 Minutes Gone

I cannot tell you the last time I saw a movie trailer with the “In a world…..” announcer voice guy narrating it, OR a person walking non-facetiously away from an explosion. This stars Bruce Willis (Die Hard) and Michael Chiklis (The Shield) and it’s directed by Brian A. Miller, the same guy who makes all of Willis’s recent shitty movies. Has anyone ever been more scared than Chiklis was shooting this gun?

4. A Hidden Life

This movie actually has a decent amount of hype around it. It’s about a real life Austrian conscientious objector to WW2 who was (spoiler alert) jailed and executed by the Nazis. He was later beatified by the Catholic church as well. You might know the star, August Diehl, from his role as the SS officer in the pub scene from ‘Inglourious Basterds’. The late Michael Nyqvist (John Wick) also has a role. The rest of the cast don’t have a ton of Hollywood exposure other than maybe Matthias Schoenaerts, who was in ‘Red Sparrow’. Terrence Malick (The Thin Red Line) wrote and directed the movie.

5. Little Women

‘Little Women’ is an extremely famous piece of American literature that has been adapted to screen, TV, stage, operas and more no less than 50 times. One movie was released in 2018, but the most famous recent adaptation was in 1994 starring Winona Ryder, Gabriel Byrne, Kirsten Dunst, Claire Danes and Christian Bale. This one, however, stars Saoirse Ronan (Ladybird), Emma Watson (Harry Potter), Florence Pugh (Midsomer), Timothèe Chalamet (Call Me by your Name), Laura Dern (Jurassic Park), Meryl Streep (Sophie’s Choice), Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) and Chris Cooper (The Patriot). Greta Gerwig (Ladybird) is directing, which is almost as appealing as the all-star cast they put together.

6. Last Christmas

This is dangerously similar to the subplot of ‘Elf’. A down on her luck girl finds love while working at a christmas shop. I do think Emilia Clarke is very well suited for the Rom Com genre, though. She stars alongside Henry Golding (Crazy Rich Asians), Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and Emma Thompson (Love Actually). Paul Feig (A Simple Favor) is directing a story written by Thompson and Greg Wise.

7. Zeroville

I don’t quite know what to think of this based off the trailer That said, the cast is almost too big to fail. I’m not even going to list them off, just take a look:

Franco is also directing, and I’m not entirely sure where his cancelation stands at this point. Don’t forget to subscribe to Lights, Camera, Pod,follow us on Twitterfollow us on Instagram and join in on the conversation on our Reddit.
