Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig can’t wait to get miniaturized in the first trailer for ‘Downsizing’

Published

on

Following its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last week, Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for Alexander Payne’s sci-fi comedy Downsizing. The film is perhaps one of the most divisive this awards season, earning mixed reactions from critics and audiences alike, and a 73% on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.

Downsizing follows a Paul (Matt Damon) and Audrey (Kristen Wiig), a couple who, in an attempt to abandon their stressed lives in Omaha, decide to shrink themselves and move to a new downsized community when Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall and propose a 200-year global transition from big to small. However, the couple’s choice triggers life-changing adventures, that could be for better or worse.

With a star-studded cast that also includes Christoph Waltz and Hong Chau, it’s a bit hard to not get at least a little excited for Payne’s latest effort, though, upon viewing this trailer and hearing some mixed reactions from my peers on the ground at TIFF, I’m staying cautiously optimistic about this one until it hits theaters on December 22, 2017.

Say what you will about Ready Player One, as I know the film has already stirred up quite a bit of controversy, especially among the Film Twitter types, but there’s no denying that this is one hell of a trailer. The dialogue, visuals, and music all come together so very well, and it should be interesting to see what Spielberg delivers when the finished product arrives in theaters next month.

Written by Zak Penn and Cline, Ready Player One features an all-star cast that includes Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg, and Mark Rylance. The film will be released on March 29.

The new ‘Rampage’ trailer features plenty of Dwayne Johnson and destructive monsters

Published

on

An action-packed new trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s upcoming monster movie Rampage was unleashed this morning and it further reveals what we can expect from the film inspired by the video game series of the same name, which finds a destructive gorilla on the loose in the streets of a busy city.

Johnson stars here as primatologist Davis Okoye, a man who shares an unshakable bond with George, an extraordinarily intelligent silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates the gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size.

“Of course the wolf flies,” Johnson says in one scene, as a gigantic, rather demonic-looking flying wolf comes crashing through a building, revealing that George isn’t the only victim of Project Rampage, which seems to have created an entire pack of alpha predators across North America hellbent on destroying everything in their path.

Brad Peyton, who previously collaborated with Johnson on the 2015 blockbuster hit San Andreas, directed Rampage from a script written by Ryan Engle, Carlton Cuse, Ryan J. Condal, and Adam Sztykiel.

Rampage also stars Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, P.K. Byrne, Marley Shelton, Breanne Hill, Jack Quaid, Matt Gerald, Jason Liles, Demetrius Grosse, and Will Yun Lee, and will open in theaters on April 20.
