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.

The movie is based on the novel by Ransom Riggs and it stars Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Terence Stamp, Kim Dickens, Rupert Everett, Judi Dench, and Samuel L. Jackson. Continue reading Trailer Time: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Trailer #1 (2016) *Is Burton Back?*
One of the most overlooked films of the year and, unfortunately, I don’t think that bodes well for future entries in the franchise was Gavin Hood’s adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s classic: Ender’s Game.
