Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks star in Disney’s forthcoming Saving Mr Banks and you can watch the UK trailer below.
Telling the story of how the story of Mary Poppins came to be, this film looks like it’s going to be an enjoyable jaunt with Hanks taking on the iconic role of Mr Disney himself.
It’s definitely worth a look, you know what to do!
Saving Mr Banks is released in the UK on 29th November
Out in the UK on October 18th, Captain Phillips comes from director Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Trilogy) and it is the fantastic directors take of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates.
A big fan of Greengrass’s work we recommend you take a look at the trailed below and then read on
If, like us, you’ve been pining for another Paul Greegrass movie since the original and the best Bournes, you’ll be delighted to know he is back with Captain Phillips, and this first trailers looks very promising.
Cloud Atlas is based on the best-selling novel by David Mitchell and bought to life by Tom Tyker, Lana and Andy Wachowski. Six individual interlinking stories which span over 500 years of time and space examines the drama, mystery & enduring love of the human soul.
An epically gorgeous piece of fantasy science fiction and one of the most ambitious films I’ve seen. Plenty of great performances on show from the impressive cast with the standouts being Tom Hanks, Hugo Weaving and Ben Whishaw. Although some stories are better than others and at times the film threatens to engulf you beneath its philosophy and its undeniably ambitious scope, there is barley a dull moment to this breathtaking unforgettable experience.
With a story that features a lawyer travelling the seas in 1849, a composer in the 1930’s, a journalist in the 70’s, an author in the present day, a servant clone in the 22nd Century and a tribesman living in a post apocalyptic future, it has been edited and put together so well that we can see how the decisions each character makes ripples through time and space. When all is said and done, you will be rewarded with the three hour run time by an irresistible film that celebrates both the courageousness of the human spirit and brave filmmaking. Destined to polarise audiences due to its long run time and deep complex subject matter where your full attention is required but ultimately this is all open to interpretation and I loved it.
