THE PREDATOR | Moustache Trailer Reaction

The Predator is due for release on 14th September and we finally have a trailer. Written and directed by Shane Black (Hawkins in Predator/writer of Lethal Weapon/director of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), this is the first Predator movie since 2010's Predators and it looks interesting. I'm also pleased to say there isn't a Xenomorph in site

The official synopsis:
From the reaches of outer space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. Now, the universe's most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA of other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a rag tag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
Well that all sounds very dramatic! Without giving too much away, the trailer does hint at the plot. We get to see Boyd Holbrook's Quinn McKenna being interrogated by a Government man about a mission that went wrong, during which an "alien" is hinted at. This is apparently the mission where McKenna gets hold of some Predator tech which he mails to himself, only for his son Rory (Jacob Tremblay) to discover it. Rory then appears to accidentally cause a ship in Earth's orbit to crash land, triggering this whole mess.

Casey Bracket (Olivia Munn) - the aforementioned science teacher - speaks about "hybridisation" and how the Predators are using the DNA of other species to enhance their own abilities. There's an interesting shot of some artefacts in a glass cabinet - two masks and a shoulder mounted gun - probably from previous Predator movies. We know this is set in the same universe as the previous movies and that Jake Busey will be playing the son of Peter Keyes, his father Gary's character from Predator 2.

There are some shots of at least one Predator doing what they do best. Some general action shots mixed with shots of some of the ex-soldiers, including Keegan-Michael Key, Thomas Jane, Trevante Rhodes and Alfie Allen. Of course we get to hear that well-known Predator growl, and one of their signature tri-lasers is seen pointed at Munn's character.

Ever since it was announced that Shane Black was making a new Predator movie, I have been more than slightly intrigued. Now we have a trailer and things are looking very interesting. This trailer does what it should; give a few hints and introduce a few characters while providing snippets of the action. And it does all of that without giving too much away, granted it's a Predator movie, we already know the basics. But with Shane Black at the helm and some - shall we say - upgraded Predators running around, I am very excited to see the return of the galaxy's greatest hunter!

These days it seems that most movies and TV Shows about World War 2 focus on the Americans. We have even seen a British operation depicted as carried out by the Americans - U-571 - yes Hollywood, we're still bitter. That's not to say there haven't been some good ones; Saving Private Ryan, Band of Brothers, The Pacific, Hacksaw Ridge, these are all brilliant depictions of World War 2. But are we in danger of younger generations thinking the Americans single-handedly won the war? What happened to the good old days when movies were made about British actions? Or better yet, movies like The Longest Day and A Bridge Too Far, which told the story from the point of view of all involved, including the local civilians. That said, could movies like Dunkirk and Darkest Hour be a sign that things are changing?

Recently we spoke with Lance Nielsen, the Director/Writer/Producer is currently working on a TV series that depicts the actions of British Airborne forces during the war. "P…

Breathe Easy: Average Guy Movie Review

Breathe Easy is an independent film, shot in multiple locations throughout ten countries. This global accomplishment took more than 20 directors roughly a year to make. Strange clouds have appeared in the sky across the globe and people are starting to behave in very strange ways. Governments are scrambling to deal with the crisis, but without knowing the cause, what can they do except...Breathe Easy? 

In a time when Hollywood studios can afford to film all over the world, it's easy for us to become indifferent. But an independent film shooting in ten countries including the UK, US, Australia and Hong Kong is an incredible achievement. And the results speak for themselves. Instead of focusing on one region or group during a global disaster - with small updates of events occurring elsewhere - the action is shared pretty much equally across all locations. It's an interesting look at how different people react to the same situation. Some will run, some will hide. Some will just ge…

So That Avengers 4 Trailer Leak...Do We Believe It?

Warning: Possible Spoilers

Esquire have recently reported on a post to the Marvel Studios subreddit. A user posted what is supposed to be a description of a leaked trailer for Avengers 4, which has now been deleted.
But the question is; is it real? Some consider it "too detailed to be fake", while others are calling it "bad fan fiction".

Here's what the post said:

The trailer starts off showing the damaged Infinity Gauntlet in a field on the farm planet. As the camera focuses in on the gauntlet, we hear Tony's voice: "We were destined to lose." Epic music score starts. The Quinjet is shown landing in a Wakandan wasteland as we hear Rogers say: "We have come so far." Tony and Nebula step off the jet as the remaining Avengers approach. Steve has a look of relief and says: "Tony". Tony, seemingly defeated, shakes his head and gives a friendly smirk back to Cap. Marvel Studios logo appears. We get a glimpse of the Battle of New York from…
