On the Second Day: We Heard about Trailers and Pre-Production

 

Trailers Coming Your Way

Tomorrow, March 29 two trailers will debut. The second trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets AND It. Yes, that It, the one with the clowns. If you’re equal parts scared and excited to see it, then you are not alone. Check back tomorrow to be the first to see them both.

 

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Director Luc Besson and the film’s star, Cara Delevingne both spoke about the upcoming film. Luc said he remembered reading the comic as child and couldn’t wait for the technology to catch up with the imagination from the comic. The wait is almost over, the film opens at AMC Theatres on July 21. Cara enjoyed her experience during filming and did some of her own stunts. Who’s ready to see this one come to the big screen? *Raises Both Hands

 

A Very Bad Christmas

Mila Kunis shared that she’s reuniting with Bad Moms co-stars Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn for A Bad Moms Christmas. She told the audience that it’s “fun to get paid to hang with friends,” and that “Christmas is the super bowl for moms.”

 

Mile 22

Director Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg will team up once again for Mile 22, a film about a CIA field officer and an Indonesian police officer forced to work together as they confront violent and extreme political corruption. STX has plans to make the film a trilogy. And Mark said that he “hopes that this is the role that will define him as an actor.” Mark and Peter have most recently worked together on Patriots Day and Deepwater Horizon.

 

Molly’s Game

Making his directorial debut is acclaimed writer, Aaron Sorkin in the upcoming film Molly’s Game. The film stars Jessica Chastain (who you can see in The Zookeepers Wife at select AMC Theatres this weekend), Idris Elba and Kevin Costner. Molly’s Game is the story of a young skier and former Olympic hopeful becoming a successful entrepreneur when she establishes a high-stakes, international poker game.  The movie is based on Molly Bloom’s memoir.

 

Ugly Dolls

Always be yourself, even if you are an Ugly Doll. That’s the premise of STX’s animated film based on the kid’s toy of the same name. Acclaimed director Robert Rodriguez will be venturing into animation for this May 2019 release centered around ‘being bold, being unique, & being yourself’.

 

Two More Things that Made Us Smile

  1. Three words, Eddie Murphy Project. Three more words, is in Pre-Production! Yes, there is a project for Eddie Murphy in the works. That’s all we know and that’s all we need to walk down Eddie Murphy memory lane, queue old clips of all of his movies.
  2. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is in pre-production. If you just dusted off your soundtrack to this favorite, you are not alone.
