(343) Never Enough! + links

  • Since this RF is as usual going to be filled with hot dudes I'm delighted that Gal Gadot shared stunning picture of herself in costume from Wonder Woman 1984 so at least I have something for my straight male readers to enjoy this week.
  • And that's Mario.
  • His pants probably flew off when he saw this.
  • So after Solo's disastrous box office performance Disney is putting all the spin offs on hold...except for Rian Johnson's trilogy. If they are trying to put everyone off this franchise they are doing an exceptional job. 
  • What on Earth are Carell and Zemeckis doing? The story is very cool but that execution seems like way too much, not to mention that animation looks creepy as hell. The trailer is beyond corny and that has gotta be the worst use of music in trailer in months, at least since that terrible use of Believer in Murder in the Orient Express. It's so goddamn on the nose I actually cringed. Reddit had a field day with this trailer:

    Screaming Sunday - Hereditary

    By Sati. Sunday, June 17, 2018 , , 12 Comments
    Movie rating - 81/100
    Plot:  When the matriarch of the Graham family passes away, her daughter's family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry.
    The heroes: Graham family, trying to figure out just what the hell is happening.
    The antagonists: Among others the sound Charlie makes which you will not be able to unhear.
    Best scene: It involves a car.
    Oh-oh something's not right line: Who is going to take care of me when you die?
    What makes it so great? There are multiple scenes where something frightening is on the screen but there is no 'look!' signal from the director. No loud music. No zoom. Nothing that would happen in 9 out of 10 other horror films out there to draw your attention to the nightmarish element of the shot.

  • Did you miss me?
  • Yes, the marketing for Aquaman is finally here. And that right there is the finest journalism since TMZ wrote about Jason pumping gas. And yes, we are going to spend a lot of room in this RF on it. But let's start with something else.

    The impressive first trailer for Luca Guadagnino's "Suspiria" is here

    By Sati. Monday, June 4, 2018 , , 20 Comments
    Luca Guadagnino, who bored me half to death last year with the tale of a peach and Armie Hammer's relentless Oscar thirst is back and this time he made something that may actually interest me - a remake of the classic horror film Suspiria.

  • Caught up with Westworld. The premiere was absolutely terrible - 74 minutes and not a goddamn thing happened - but it got better from there. The last episode was incredible and it was insanely impressive given it was Lisa Joy's first director gig.

  • ...and please leave me there because I clearly need Jesus (1,2).
  • So one of our favorite things of the year happened this week. MET Gala. That magical evening where celebrities look like total clowns. This year the theme was Heavenly Bodies so you can imagine how bad it got.

    and...10 more great uses of songs in movie trailers

    By Sati. Wednesday, May 9, 2018 , , 20 Comments
    And one more time, here are 10 more awesome uses of songs in teasers and trailers (part 1part 2). This time it's only movies. We'll probably gonna have these posts every once in a while since practically all I listen to are either soundtracks or trailer songs and clearly there is no shortage of awesome Imagine Dragons songs they can use flawlessly to market a movie.

  • Everyone, stop everything. I don't know how they did this but they got Celine Dion to record a song...for Deadpool 2. There's music video and everything.

    Things get tiny and huge in the second trailer for "Ant-Man and The Wasp"

    By Sati. Tuesday, May 1, 2018 , 12 Comments

    On the heels of devastating everyone last week, the timing was perfect for Marvel to release brand new - and very fun - trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp aka a sequel to my second favorite MCU movie. The official synopsis for the film reads "as Scott Lang balances being both a Super Hero and a father, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past.". Even though we saw Michelle Pfeiffer, who plays Janet van Dyne, Hope's mother who is lost in Quantum Realm, on the poster released yesterday, there is no footage of her in the trailer, other than in the full costume in flashback sequence. But we do see lovely glimpses of Quantum Realm.
