It wasn't me

HBO released the trailer for the second season of Tracy Ullman's Show...



I enjoyed the first season (especially the Judi Dench segments) and am looking forward to the new one when it premieres on October 20th.

Terror Train

A new trailer was released today for the upcoming Kenneth Branagh directed Murder on the Orient Express...



It has a great cast including Tom Bateman, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Josh Gad, Derek Jacobi, Leslie Odom Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley, Marwan Kenzari, Olivia Colman, Lucy Boynton, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Sergei Polunin.

I never read the book or watched the original film, so it'll all be new to me.

I'm looking forward to solving the mystery with everyone else when the film opens on November 10th.

Death by cake

The first full trailer for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was released today...



I have to be honest, as much as I love me some Dwayne Johnson and Nick Jonas, I had no desire to see this movie when I heard it was being made. It just seemed like a cheap reach (with Robin Williams having died) to make a quick buck off of the previous film.

However...this trailer looks fun and actually made me laugh a couple of times.

Well played, marketing folks.

We'll see how I feel about it when it opens on December 20th.

Why am I naked?

Steven Colbert being revealed as a robot from Westworld may have been my favorite moment of the Emmy Awards last night...



The surprise appearance of Titus from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt at the end of that was also hilarious.

Glutton for punishment

If you had suffered what her character has throughout all of these films, wouldn't you just MOVE out of the neighborhood and, maybe, go live with the gals at the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel to be as far away from your 40-year stalker as possible?!

I think Maggie Smith could probably take Michael Myers with one eyebrow arched appropriately.

Here's what she thinks about Jamie Lee Curtis putting herself through all of this again...

I couldn't agree more.

Ladies in waiting

Looks like Jennifer Lawrence is going undercover for the movie Red Sparrow...



She's already proven she can kick-ass in the X-Men movies, so it will be interesting to see her go all-out as a solo assassin (like Charlize Theron did recently in Atomic Blonde).

The movie opens on March 2nd.

Also, the first trailer for All the Money in the World (about the kidnapping of John Paul Getty's 16-year old nephew in 1973) was released today...



All the Money in the World follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Michelle Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (a nearly unrecognizable Kevin Spacey) to pay the ransom. When Getty Sr. refuses, Gail attempts to sway him as her son’s captors become increasingly volatile and brutal. With her son’s life in the balance, Gail and Getty’s adviser (Mark Wahlberg) become unlikely allies in the race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money. 

It's got a great cast and the story is definitely interesting (I didn't know that this actually happened), so I'm looking forward to seeing this when it comes out on December 8th.

Enigma?

The first full trailer for Season 9 of Curb Your Enthusiasm was finally released...



He's really such an awful character, yet usually gets what's coming to him, one way or the other.

The good news is that watching him get his karmic payback is always hilarious and well worth the wait.

The new episodes begin airing on HBO on October 1st.

The first full trailer for Alexander Payne's new film, Downsizing was released this morning...



This looks awesome and hilarious. I love Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig and the idea of living better/smaller is something I'm onboard with.

Sign me up!

The movie opens on December 22nd.

A new TV trailer for Thor: Ragnarok was just released....



Still looking action-packed and fun-filled.

The movie opens on November 3rd.
