Welcome to the trailer park! This week: Super Bowl TV spots everywhere, High Rise gets its full trailer and The Jungle Book is looking pretty damn fine.
Super Bowl TV Spot 1: Get a first look at Psylocke’s lightsaber! I mean, um, psi-blade.
“With the emergence of the world’s first mutant, Apocalypse, the X-Men must unite to defeat his extinction level plan.”
10 Cloverfield Lane
Super Bowl TV Spot 2: The mystery continues in this sneaky Cloverfield sequel.
“The majority of the movie takes place in an underground cellar, and revolves around a young woman who wakes up in the cellar after a severe car accident and fears she has been abducted. Her captor, a doomsday prepper, tells her he saved her life and that there has been a terrible chemical attack that has left the outside uninhabitable. She does not know what to believe and as tensions rise, she decides she must escape, regardless of the terrors that await outside.”
Super Bowl TV Spot 3: “My god, that’s Jason Bourne!”
“Matt Damon returns to his most iconic role in Jason Bourne. Paul Greengrass, the director of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, once again joins Damon for the next chapter of Universal Pictures’ Bournefranchise, which finds the CIA’s most lethal former operative drawn out of the shadows.”
The Jungle Book
Super Bowl full trailer: The latest Jungle Book trailer introduces us to its entire cast — including Christopher Walken as King Louie!
“The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray).”
House of Cards Season 4
Get ready to binge watch!
“Frank and Claire continue their pursuit for power, battling everyone in their way, including each other.”
In which Tom Hiddleston is an “excellent specimen”.
“1975. Two miles west of London, Dr. Robert Laing moves into his new apartment seeking soulless anonymity, only to find that the building’s residents have no intention of leaving him alone. Resigned to the complex social dynamics unfolding around him, Laing bites the bullet and becomes neighbourly. As he struggles to establish his position, Laing’s good manners and sanity disintegrate along with the building. The lights go out and the lifts fail but the party goes on. People are the currency. Sex is the panacea. Only much later, as he sits on his balcony eating the architect’s dog, does Dr. Robert Laing finally feel at home…”
The Lobster has already been released in Australia, but it’s too absurd and wonderful not to share again.
“In a dystopian near future, single people are obliged to find a matching mate in 45 days or are transformed into animals and released into the woods.”
The Purge: Election Year
An election-themed horror movie is an interesting idea, but let’s be honest that nothing fictional could be scarier than the idea of Trump actually winning the US election.
“It’s been two years since Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) stopped himself from a regrettable act of revenge on Purge Night. Now serving as head of security for Senator Charlie Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), his mission is to protect her in a run for president and survive the annual ritual that targets the poor and innocent. But when a betrayal forces them onto the streets of D.C. on the one night when no help is available, they must stay alive until dawn…or both be sacrificed for their sins against the state.”
