Trailer Time: Passengers Trailer #1 (2016) *Star Lord & Katniss Go Space Traveling*

Rogue One is going to have much stiffer competition at the box office than last year’s Episode VII had.  In addition to Oscar films going from limited to wide release, Assassin’s Creed, A Monster Calls (which recently moved into the Christmas slot for better awards consideration), and now a stunning trailer for Passengers, which packs the star power of Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence.  Official synopsis below:

On a routine journey through space to a new home, two passengers, sleeping in suspended animation, are awakened 90 years too early when their ship malfunctions. As Jim (Chris Pratt) and Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence) face living the rest of their lives on board, with every luxury they could ever ask for, they begin to fall for each other, unable to deny their intense attraction… until they discover the ship is in grave danger. With the lives of 5000 sleeping passengers at stake, only Jim and Aurora can save them all.
Passengers was directed by Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) from a screenplay by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus).

My Favorite Scene: Glory (1989) “One Tear”

Sometimes the word “favorite” isn’t exactly the right descriptor for this column.  This isn’t a scene I watch over and over because it’s fun.  It just happens to be one of the most powerful scenes I’ve ever seen in any film, and it’s a reminder that when Denzel Washington is paired with great material, he’s probably the best actor on the planet.

Glory is a criminally underrated film from 1989 that tells the story of the Massachusetts 54th: the first all-black, all-volunteer company in the US Army.  Some were free men from the North, others escaped slaves from the South.  All were fighting in a war that would be run by white men to determine the fate of their people, and they did so in the face of contempt from both  sides.  Directed by Edward Zwick and starring an ensemble that includes Morgan Freeman, Andre Braugher, Cary Elwes, and Matthew Broderick, Glory is the film that made Denzel a superstar and won him his first Oscar (for Best Supporting Actor).

2016 Emmy Winners List: Game of Thrones is the Most Decorated Drama of All-Time!!!

Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke, Danerys Targaryen

Game of Thrones, Veep, and The People vs. OJ Simpson were the biggest winners at Sunday’s Emmy ceremony, winning Drama, Comedy, and Limited Series.  Game of Thrones was the night’s biggest winner with 12 awards, bringing its series total to 38.  That breaks Frasier’s record for the most awards ever won by a Drama or Comedy series, and the show has two, albeit abbreviated, seasons left to catch Saturday Night Live which has the overall record with 44.

Veep’s continual Emmy domination is in the tradition of lazy Emmy voting that leads to repeat winners year-after-year (a trend that’s gotten much better on the dramatic side, but really did Ben Mendelsohn deserve another win?  He was more of a guest star in Bloodline’s second season.).  Its wins this year bother me less than when it has been inexplicably lauded over better shows like 30 Rock and Parks & Recreation.  The state of the comedy on TV, at this point, has degraded to the level where I don’t think any current show is worthy of recognition.

Cuba Gooding Jr., OJ Simpson, The People vs. OJ Simpson

Check out the list of major winners below including much deserved wins for Sherlock and John Oliver.  The People vs. OJ Simpson was given five much-deserved major wins for limited series and for series stars Courtney B. Vance, Sarah Paulson, and Sterling K. Brown.  By the way, how is Fargo still considered a “limited series” when production is starting on its third season?  Such are the baffling ways of the Emmys.

Trailer Time: Gold Trailer #1 (2016) *McConaughey Has Gold Fever*

*From Variety

“Gold” is directed by Stephen Gaghan and loosely based on the Bre-X mining scandal of the 1990s. McConaughey plays Wells as a down-and-out prospector who teams up with a geologist (Edgar Ramirez) to find a massive gold deposit in the jungles of Borneo.

“It’s amazing how a little gold dust can just change everything,” Wells says in the trailer. “For better or worse, the ride has begun.”

But keeping the gold is even harder as Wall Street,  the FBI and the Indonesian military take notice.

The film also stars Bryce Dallas Howard as Wells’ wife, Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbell, Bruce Greenwood and Stacy Keach.

Gaghan, who directed “Syriana” and wrote “Traffic,” helmed from a screenplay by Patrick Massett & John Zinman, who are also producing along with McConaughey, Teddy Schwarzman for Black Bear Pictures and Michael Nozik for HWY61.

“Gold” opens on Christmas Day in the U.S.
