Trailer: Avengers: Endgame
I don't know what the movie is going to be like, and I don't know what the resolution will be like—how they‘ll reverse things so all of these lucrative properties are alive again and making money for Marvel/Disney without it seeming like a massive cheat to the rest of us—but the tone of the first trailer to drop on “Avengers: Endgame” is just about perfect: from Tony Stark drifting and dying in space, to the reappearance of a fierce Hawkeye, to Black Widow’s quiet conversation with a determined Captain America. Plus the reappearance of Scott Lang adding a comic touch at the end of all this gravitas. That's amazing they‘re able to do that—put Cap and Ant Man in the same scene, with their different tones, and make it work. I know we’re superhero saturated as a culture but this got me excited to see the movie when it's released in April. Hell, I want to see it now.
Trailer: Vice (2018)
Wow. An unrecognizable Christian Bale looks and sounds freakin' amazing here. He looks like he already has a lead actor nom sewn up and maybe the win. He's the tragedy, and Sam Rockwell, as W., is the farce. As was true in real life for Cheney/Bush:
In the meantime, check out the cast list:
- Christian Bale ... Dick Cheney
- Sam Rockwell ... George W. Bush
- Steve Carell ... Donald Rumsfeld
- Amy Adams ... Lynne Cheney
- Alison Pill ... Mary Cheney
- Eddie Marsan ... Paul Wolfovitz
- Shea Whigham ... Wayne Vincent
- Tyler Perry ... Colin Powell
- Bill Camp ... Gerald Ford
- Justin Kirk ... Scooter Libby
- LisaGay Hamilton ... Condoleezza Rice
Some of my favorite characters actors—Marsan, Whigham, Camp—are here. And in these roles? In a movie written and directed by Adam McKay, who gave us “The Big Short”? I'm so in. December 25.
Here's Jeff Wells on it. No word on when/if/where it arrives.
Trailer: Le Retour Du Heros (2018)
This looks fun. I‘ve been missing me some Jean Dujardin. It’s “Return of Martin Guerre” but funny—that double-take after spitting into the baby carriage is perfect—and will lead off SIFF's annual French fest on Sept. 27. On se voit le-bas.
Trailer: Roma (2018)
Coming to select theaters and on Netflix. See it in theaters, people.
