Apologies to all of you LTLiens out there, this post is a week late. But, just because it’s late does not mean it’s not great! Wow, that was terrible. Anyways, this week we have some interesting ones with the Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt led science fiction thriller, Passengers. To go along with that, we have Trespass Against Us, and Ghost in the Shell.
A lot of excitement for this one. Chris Pratt + Jennifer Lawrence? Yes. I believe the chemistry between these two will be great. Two of the top personalities in Hollywood today. To go along with these two, we have Morten Tyldum, the director of The Imitation Game.
The story is about two people (Lawrence and Pratt) who have decided to leave their lives behind on Earth and travel to a new home. Originally meant to be sleeping in their hibernation chambers for 120 years while traveling through space, a malfunction opens their chambers 90 years earlier than expected.
Interest Level: 5/5
Release Date: December 21, 2016
Trespass Against Us
Michael Fassbender stars in the new film from Adam Smith about a man struggling to balance the life with his family and his life of crime. His father, played by Brendan Gleeson, seemingly pulls Fassbender’s character more and more into the life of crime he’s known his whole life, while Fassbender struggles to protect his family from the violence and uncertainty that comes with it.
An interesting one that looks like it could be good. I’m definitely interested in seeing how Fassbender rolls with this role, as he is too often cast in bug-budget studio films (e.g., X-Men, Assassin’s Creed). And Brendan Gleeson is always a welcome site.
Interest Level: 3.5/5
Release Date: November 24, 2016
Ghost in the Shell
Not a whole lot of information on this one, but it stars Scarlett Johansson as a police cyborg attempting to bring down a computer hacker. The teaser is short, I know. But, it looks interesting nonetheless.
The film is based on the manga series of the same name. That’s about all I have for you. So, sorry about that. But, keep you eyes open for this one as more news will surface closer to the release date.
Interest Level: 4/5
