Let’s check out some interesting movie trailers released this week. This includes Sam Mendes’ 1917, Scorsese’s crime drama The Irishman, Blumhouse thriller The Hunt, and few more. Most of the films we are listing here are promising with interesting storylines of varied genre.
This upcoming World War I epic 1917 is coming from the Academy Award-winning director Sam Mendes and has an incredible cast, including Colin Firth and Benedict Cumberbatch.
While we can for now feel this something in line with Saving Private Ryan, the story is set during the First World War, and here the key characters are assigned a mission to save not just one but hundreds of British soldiers. 1917 is slated for a January 10 worldwide release.
For all those fans of Goodfellas, the showman Martin Scorsese is back to the crime drama genre with his latest creation The Irishman. While we will be seeing Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci together once again in key roles, Al Pacino is working for the first time with Scorsese.
The film is based on “I Heard You Paint Houses: Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran & Closing the Case on Jimmy Hoffa” by author Charles Brandt. So, this might throw some light on the rise of Frank Sheeran from a war veteran to a hitman and might also include the circumstances leading to the Jimmy Hoffa disappearance. This Netflix film will release in New York Film Festival on September 27.
‘Queen & Slim’ – Story of a black couple
It’s a story about a black couple Queen and Slim who is pulled over for a minor traffic violation. The situation takes an unfortunate turn resulting Slim shooting the cop in self-defense. That was caught on camera and goes viral forcing the couple to go on the run.
Soon they unwittingly become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief, and pain for people across the country. As they run from one hiding place to another, they will discover themselves and each other. Queen & Slim is releasing on November 27.
Producer Jason Blum’s upcoming action thriller The Hunt looks terrific in the trailer as we see humans hunting human for sport. This sounds strange but the storyline, as we can see in the trailer, has a twist and might be a successful one like the earlier The Purge movie series.
The Hunt is directed by Craig Zobel and has an ensemble cast that includes Hilary Swank and Emma Roberts. The film is coming to cinemas on September 27, 2019.
