Trailer: Yesterday

Posted on February 12, 2019 at 7:13 pm

If I may paraphrase John Lennon: Imagine there’s no Beatles. Richard Curtis, who made the greatest movie love letter to pop/rock and roll of all time, “Pirate Radio” as well as classics like “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Notting Hill,” and “Love Actually” has written a new film called “Yesterday,” directed by Danny Boyle (“Slumdog Millionaire,” “Millions”), about a world in which the Beatles never existed. When you look up “Beatles” online, all that comes up is the insect. Just one person remembers their songs, and when he plays them, everyone thinks he wrote them, which of course makes him wildly popular. I can imagine this will be a lot of fun. And I know the music will be great.

Trailer — Spider-Man: Far From Home

Posted on January 15, 2019 at 10:03 am

The last one was called “Homecoming,” but this time your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man (Tom Holland) is out of his friendly neighborhood and on a field trip to Europe with his classmates, including Zendaya as MJ. Guess who shows up — Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Also Jake Gyllenhaal as Mysterio. And I love that sizzle between Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) and Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). Spidey, take us home!

Trailer: Little with Issa Rae, Regina Hall, and Marsai Martin (Diane on Black-ish)

Posted on January 10, 2019 at 8:12 am

Remember “Big?” When a boy wished to be big and turned into Tom Hanks? Well, this is the other way around in “Little,” with Issa Rae as an executive assistant, Regina Hall as her tyrannical boss, and Marsai Martin (Diane on “Black-ish”) as her, well, Tom Hanks. Three of my favorite performers. I can’t wait.
