Because there’s been a fair amount of movie news lately that excites me, I thought I’d forgo my previously planned book review today and talk about a couple of movie news items that have me all atwitter.
1. Dear White People theatrical trailer
It’s going to push a lot of buttons and make people uncomfortable, but I can’t wait to see this. (Don’t read the YouTube comments because internet.)
2. I Know What You Did Last Summer getting a reboot
The plan is to re-adapt the 1973 novel. Lois Duncan tweeted about it, saying the author is always the last to know, so I guess that means she’s not in on crafting the screenplay? It will be interesting to see if they go the more psychological route that the original novel delved into, or if they go straight slasher-flick like the 90s horror adaptation. Either way, I’m there. (ComingSoon)
3. Two Night Stand trailer
The movie stars Miles Teller (LOVE LOVE LOVE) and Annaleigh Tipton and looks pretty silly but sweet? I don’t know. I love Miles Teller so much that it hardly matters, because I will see it regardless.
4. New Mockingjay Trailer
Not that this needs more publicity, but it looks pretty great. Now with 100% more Katniss! I sent it to my BFFFFFFFF with a question “We will see this together y/y?” and she was like “I DON’T WANNA WATCH THE TRAILER BUT YESSSSSS” so that’s happening.
5. This is Where I Leave You trailer
It’s based on the novel of the same name by Jonathan Tropper. It’s got a pretty stellar cast and features a dysfunctional family, so you know I’m there. I’m not sure it’s going to be a great movie, but it certainly looks like it will be entertaining.
