So yesterday I watched the first episode of the Netflix documentary This is a robbery about the 1990 robbery at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston and the accents alone made me homesick.
For those who didn’t grow up in the land of dropped Rs, two thieves dressed as police stole 13 works from the museum, worth a total of $ 500 million. The art, including paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Degas and Manet, has never been found and no arrests have ever been made. The museum is offering a reward of $ 10 million for information leading to the recovery of the stolen works. I try to avoid spoilers because although I grew up in Boston and am familiar with the story, a few headlines about the doc have plagued that it ‘solves’ the case. Very interested to see the filmmakers’ theory of what happened!
This week’s trailer collection features Villains, Containers, and Ghostbusters. You’re welcome.
The woman in the window
Get strong Rear window vibes from the second trailer for this movie, which was set to premiere in theaters in May. Amy Adams stars as Anna Fox, a seriously agoraphobic woman who suspects she witnessed the murder of her boyfriend (played by Julianne Moore) in the building next door. A serious gaslighting follows. The woman in the window also stars Brian Tyree Henry, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Anthony Mackie, Tracy Letts and Gary Oldman. It hits Netflix May 14.
This is the second trailer for the villainess’ upcoming origin story from 101 dalmatiers and it makes me think we should be rooting for Cruella? Even though she wanted to make a coat out of puppies in the original movie? And is it literally called “cruel devil”? I’m still not completely sold on the whole idea of an origin story for a movie villain (and more to come), but when Emmas Stone and Thompson are involved (Thompson’s character is the Baroness von Hellman … ‘hell’ right in her name), then it’s worth a look. Cruella will hit theaters and Disney Plus on May 28 (for a fee).
Okay, so this is a character-specific teaser trailer for the upcoming one Ghostbusters continued with Paul Rudd, introduce us to a cute? Spooky? Threatening? Stay-Puft marshmallow … creatures. Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, Carrie Coon, and some of the original Ghostbusters will be in Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which hits theaters on November 11.
The next Marvel spin-off series is all about Loki, the trickster god of Asgard, introducing the Time Variance Authority and Owen Wilson as Mobius. Tom Hiddleston is as good as Loki that I may have to retract or at least reconsider my previous statement about movie villains. Loki is coming to Disney Plus on June 11th.
