Journey’s End Trailer #1 (2018) “Innocence Lost; Courage Found”

Ever since The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, I’ve been awestruck by Asa Butterfield’s talent.  He was one of the finalists to be Spider-Man in the MCU, and I was rooting for him, though Tom Holland has that so owned now, I think it was for the best.  Through Hugo and Ender’s Game, Butterfield has continued to blow me away, and I’m hoping as he transitions into adulthood he’s the rare star that manages to continue to find good roles and evolve as an actor.  Journey’s End is a World War I epic based on the novel by R.C. Sherriff.  It’s scheduled to hit theaters February 2, 2018.

Dunkirk Blu Ray Release Date and Special Features

Christopher Nolan Filming Dunkirk

There are a group of great films this year at the very top of what has been, otherwise, a mediocre year in film.  Nearly 11 months into the year, Dunkirk is still my pick for Best Film of 2017.  Part of me wonders how much of the immersive experience of Dunkirk will be lost when you’re viewing it at home and not in an IMAX theater.  Gravity is a comparison you could draw.  That film is still good at home, but it’s nothing compared to what it was in IMAX 3D.  I suspect it will still be one of the best war films I’ve ever seen and at the top of Christopher Nolan’s very elite resume alongside The Dark Knight, Inception, and Memento.  The official press release from WB as to the film’s blu ray and 4K special features is below (man, I wish Nolan would do director’s commentaries).  Dunkirk will hit stores just in time for Christmas: December 19, 2017.
