Bright Trailer #1 (2017) *Will Smith’s Netflix Blockbuster*

Netflix continues to forge ahead with their plans to take on the big boys in movies as well as TV, despite the critical bomb that was Brad Pitt’s War Machine.  The next big effort will come in December with Will Smith and Bright.  You can’t say it’s not ambitious.  I really didn’t think you could come up with a more diverse, racially-divided LA, but…hats off to David Ayer for bringing elves into the mix.  It looks like it could be great or awful with absolutely no middle ground.

The movie was directed by Max Landis and it also stars Noomi Rapace, Edgar Ramírez, Ike Barinholtz, and Brad William Henke.  Bright will be available to stream on Netflix starting on December 22, 2017

Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves, and fairies have been co-existing since the beginning of time. Bright is genre-bending action movie that follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward (Smith) and Jakoby (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine patrol night and encounter a darkness that will ultimately alter the future and their world as they know it.

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.

My Favorite Scene: The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) *Hand Towel Throwdown*

We are now two days away from the fifth entry in the Bourne series: Jason Bourne.  The film marks the return of Matt Damon to the title role and director of films two and three: Paul Greengrass.  Most likely, this will be the last Damon Bourne film.  We’re looking at the first three entries in the series in this column leading up to the film (because really why submit yourself to The Bourne Legacy?).  Two weeks ago, we looked at The Bourne Identity, last week we looked at The Bourne Supremacy, and this week we look at the last film to feature Damon & Greengrass: 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum.

Trailer Time: Joy (2015) *Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and David O. Russell Again*

Joy is the story of a family across four generations and the woman who rises to become founder and matriarch of a powerful family business dynasty.

Alright, that’s not terribly descriptive, but at this point you kind of just have to know that the last two times David O. Russell directed Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper, all three were nominated for Oscars and Lawrence won once (and should’ve won twice).  Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle and now Joy.
