The Trailer For “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” Dropped On Fred Rogers’ Birthday

March 20, 2018 / Posted by:

Today would have been Fred Rogers’ 90th birthday and in commemoration, Focus Features released the first full length trailer for their upcoming documentary called Won’t You Be My Neighbor? about the man who was too good for us. There are a few things that are guaranteed to have my eyes squirting like a talented porn star in seconds flat; watching horses run, the opening bars of You’ll Never Walk Alone sung by Judy Garland and videos of animals being reunited with their humans are all up there. But nothing does me in faster than watching Mr. Rogers interact with children. I’ve just spent 5 minutes trying to clean the snot off of my keyboard so I advise you take any necessary precautions before proceeding.

Here’s the trailer:

The movie is directed by Morgan Neville who won an Oscar for directing 20 Feet From Stardom which also made me ugly cry (anything to do with music usually does) so I’m really going to need to hydrate before stepping foot in the theater for WYBMN. Entertainment Weekly adds:

As the trailer reminds us, that includes lessons about death, assassination, divorce, and about caring for and accepting our neighbors. “Children have very deep feelings, just the way everybody does,” Rogers explains in the trailer.

It won’t be in theaters until June 8th so that gives me plenty of time to stock up on Kleenex, Advil, Visine, garments to rend and pillows to punch. We need Mr. Rogers’ message of love, empathy and sanity now more than ever. Also, I’m not gonna lie, young Fred could definitely get it.

We Can Finally Watch The Bollywood Style Rom-Com Brie Larson Made In 2013

February 8, 2018 / Posted by:

I’m sure we’ve all done something for money that we regret. Luckily for us normals, whatever it was is probably safely filed away somewhere in the back of our minds under “Let’s Never Speak Of This Again”. Unluckily for academy award winning actress Brie Larson, her questionable transaction is about to be released in theaters and On Demand tomorrow.

Back in 2013, well before she won her Oscar for Room, even before she was on anybody’s radar with Short Term 12, Brie made a “Bollywood” musical called Basmati Blues about a scientist named Linda who develops a super strain of rice and gets sent to India by her evil corporate boss (who is named Gurgon (!), played by Donald Sutherland) for… well for reasons. After sitting on the shelf for 5 years, Brie probably thought she was in the clear but then here comes 2018 like “surprise, bitch!”.

Two Trailers For “Solo: A Star Wars Story” Were Released

February 5, 2018 / Posted by:

During yesterday’s National Sporting Event, a sneak peek of the teaser trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story aired. So, basically a teaser trailer for a teaser trailer. Then the actual teaser trailer dropped today but it’s only slightly longer than the teaser, teaser trailer. Both the pre-teaser and the actual teaser show the big debut of Alden Ehrenreich as Han and Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian, but only one of them might be a terrible actor. Also in it are Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) with bangs, Woody Harrelson with bangs and Chewbacca, also with bangs.

Here Is The Newest Trailer For “Tomb Raider” Featuring A Kinder, Gentler Lara Croft

January 19, 2018 / Posted by:

I don’t play video games so I don’t really know what Lara Croft’s deal is supposed to be. I did see the first movie with Angelina Jolie and it was fun to watch a female lead be a swashbuckling adventurer who seemed to give few if any fucks. Now I’ve just watched the newest trailer for the new reboot simply called Tomb Raider starring Alicia Vikander and I’m spitting mad for no good reason. In #thesetryingtimes, you’d think I’d have something better to get worked up about. Yet, here we are.

The Season 2 Teaser Trailer For “The Handmaid’s Tale” Is Here

January 15, 2018 / Posted by:

The trailer for season two of The Handmaid’s Tale is here and it looks like a real no fun bummer; but fashion. It’s a decent trailer but I kinda feel like I’ve seen it all before. For starters, they lost major points for originality by doing that thing they all do these days where instead of dialog there’s a slowed down, minor key version of an uptempo song and it makes me stabby. I want to snap the index finger off of whoever keeps plucking the same key on the piano over and over and over again. Your movie or television program is dark and twisty, WE GET it!

Here’s the trailer.

Like I said, it all seems very familiar. There are only so many times you can stick a camera on a drone to show ladies in red arranging themselves into the form of a pentagram, or whatever. Besides, Busby Berkeley already did it better. Also, there is something Elisabeth Moss does with her face and neck in the scene where she’s with her husband and daughter that I hate. She looks like she’s trying to swallow a frog. Here’s what I saw watching this:

The Martian, Planet of the Apes, that Mean Joe Green coke commercial, Pulp Fiction, The Remains of The Day, Citizen Caine, Cool Hand Luke, The Crucible, a Canadian remake of Born of the Fourth of July, Signs, Miller’s Crossing, that weird 1984 Mac commercial, The Girl on The Train, The Hunger Games.

That said, I enjoy most of those points of reference so I’m on board. I hope Elisabeth manages to hork up whatever it is that’s choking her.
