Trailer Park: The Nice Guys, Jane Got A Gun

For the latest in my ‘trailer park’ series I wish to draw your attention to a couple of films that look like they’re going to kick ass and entertain in equal measure. Shane Black, last seen as writer-director of Iron Man 3brings us a cop caper with an unlikely – but brilliant looking, at least in the trailer – pair of misfits. And Natalie Portman makes a welcome return after a few years of misfiring duds (bar the Thor films) in a rather sumptous looking Western.

The Nice Guys
Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe might sound an unlikely duo on paper, but from the trailer their chemistry looks evident and this looks a genuinely funny prospect.

Jane Got A Gun
Natalie Portman is due a return to form I’d say, and here she might have it, in a Western which sees her team up with Joel Edgerton to thwart an evil Ewan McGregor.

Start small and go large. That’s the name of the game. Trailer wise the BFG could be that ‘small’ film, but I doubt it. So forget what I’ve said and check out this lot.

The BFG
(out July 2016)
In order to do a story like this Roald Dahl 1982 classic justice you need someone who can do wonder and character and, generally, is one of the world’s best storytellers. Step forward Steven Spielberg. This should be quite a treat.

Captain America: Civil War
(out April/May 2016)
Hard to say how much of Mark Millar’s graphic novel this latest Marvel Studios film will mine, but pitting Tony Stark against Steve Rodgers seems like a great idea on paper. This may be the last outing for some of the existing team, so let’s hope it’s a good one.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
(out March 2016)
What Marvel can do, DC can do better (or differently at least). Here they’ve betted the house by facing off their two biggest properties. It looks good though, dark, gritty and really rather an exciting movie for the first half of next year.

Continuing my run of ‘trailer park’ blogs, here’s another. This one focusing on sci-fi, fantasy, adventure and action. ‘Tis the season to fight monsters, tra la la la laa.

The Jungle Book
(out April 2016)
Picking up (in a way) where Life of Pi left off, this film takes the technology further in what looks to be a frankly awe-inspiring version of this classic story. With a strong cast expect to be dazzled and delighted.

X-Men: Apocalypse
(out May 2016)
Upping the ante, that’s what superhero films are all about. For the latest in this franchise the gang face Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse, the first mutant, and immensely powerful to boot. This has promise.

Warcraft
(out June 2016)
Aiming to be perhaps the first director to create a successful film based on a computer game, Duncan Jones could well pull this off. It’s not holding back either, with an epic trailer promising spectacle and character in spades.
