Mountains are a great metaphor in movies. They symbolise a seemingly insurmountable challenge that the protagonist must slowly traverse in order to reach the peak (their ultimate goal.) When the plot of the film in question strands its two leads on an actual mountain, then you know there is going to be a lot of sequences showing the characters overcoming diversity.
This is the case of The Mountain Between Us a story of two people trying to survive after their private plane crashes and very little hope of escape.
Idris Elba and Kate Winslet show off their more action oriented sides as they brave the perils of the mountain and try to reach civilisation once again.
The Mountain Between Us is out in cinemas October 20!
Brace yourselves folks, one of the greatest TV series to grace our screens last year has released its first trailer for the brand new season!
I am talking about Preacher. The show which has a disaffected holy man suddenly blessed with the power to make anyone do as he tells them. He also hangs around with his ex-girlfriend who can create rocket launchers out of paint cans, and a vampire. It’s a pretty weird, pretty awesome show, when I describe it like that…
From police shootouts, to car stunts, to complaining and then slowly coming around to Dexy’s Midnight Runners, these trailer are incredible!
It’s an awful lot to take in. But it’s definitely going to be worth the wait.
Preacher returns June 25th!
Look, behold, one of the greatest cinematic moustaches of all time and the film isn’t even out yet.
Based on the classic Agatha Christie book and directed by Kenneth Branagh, the film revolves around a murder …on the….orient express. It’s up to detective Poirot to solve it! Here, played by Branagh. Of course.
Murder on the Orient Express has been done many times before and we are still not convinced about Daisy Ridley’s acting ability BUT this could be good. It’s certainly going to appeal to a new audience, as well as the old and better versed.
Murder on the Orient Express is out November 10th!
