The international trailer, released overseas to promote Thor: Ragnarok contains not only some shocking new revelations but a distinct shift in emphasis for Marvel’s superhero buddy/road flick and surefire fall blockbuster.
The latest promo clip reveals that Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Doctor Strange makes an appearance – obviously repaying the favor of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) showing up in Doctor Strange‘s post-credits sequence last fall.
But Doc’s appearance here seems meatier, with Cumberbatch’s basso profundo voice bearing an ominous warning for the God of Thunder about his new destiny. Doc is not generally known for fortune-telling parlor tricks, so the change he senses in Odinson’s future much be pretty significant.
Of course you do! Who wouldn’t?
Well, we’re all about to get our chance, thanks to Jennifer Lawrence‘s new partnership with Omaze benefitting Represent.Us, a non-partisan organization that wants to “fix America’s broken political system.”
While announcing the opportunity to win the boozy meet-and-greet, JLaw did a bit in which she tried to guess if a quote was from a wine review or a review of one of her movies. Hilarity ensued.
After a long absence – has it really been since last December’s Passengers?– Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar-winning actress and America’s Sweetheart, is returning to screens this fall in a psychological thriller/horror movie called Mother! (yes, the exclamation point is part of the title).
It’s written and directed by Darren Aronofsky, who did the masterful Black Swan, so we should expect lots of mind games from the script. Let’s take a look at the excellent, intriguing trailer:
My first impression is that the trailer is very tense, aided immeasurably by the music, which I don’t recognize. (This is a major plus, as modern trailers all seem to use the same five or so musical selections; boring.) Is it from the film? I hope so!
Since the Guardians of the Galaxy is the most cosmic film franchise of them all, we cannot expect director James Gunn to make a pedestrian announcement about the Blu-ray release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – it has to bend reality!
And this does. Gunn has brought in no less a cosmic entity than David Hasselhoff to break the news of Guardians on home video with an original song, “Guardians Inferno.” Grab hold of something and roll video:
