So tonight’s for the final Easttown mare and there are so many threads to be connected that I legitimately don’t know how they will answer all the open questions. I have a theory about who the killer is and me do not think it’s the same person who fathered Erin’s baby. Will Mare ever find happiness? It seems unlikely, I’m afraid. But she may find answers or closure.
I realized in this week’s trailer recap that we have – in addition to a time-traveling theme – two movies starring Sam Richardson, who played Richard Splett, arguably the best supporting character on the late HBO great show Veep. Please throw him in all things Hollywood, he’s hilarious.
The Tomorrow War
Chris Pratt is drafted into a war in which he must go into the future and fight aliens that sound and look (from the brief glimpse we get) like the Aliens aliens, because if the current humans don’t help, all humans will be wiped out / disappear “off the face of the earth” (which we know is Very Serious because two separate characters say so in the trailer). Lots of guns, lots of Pratt jokes (which somehow don’t quite land here) and lots of things that blow up, plus an Independence Day weekend release date will get a lot of people to watch this movie. And what a cast: JK Simmons, Betty Gilpin, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Yvonne Strahovski, and Sam Richardson all join Pratt, so hopefully they can breathe life into what looks like a movie we have seen once or twice before. The Tomorrow War is coming to Amazon Prime on July 2.
Based on the Ubisoft VR game of the same name, Werewolves inside Set in the small town of Beaverfield, Sam Richardson plays newcomer Forest Ranger Finn, who discovers a corpse that may have been the victim of a wolf attack. But not just any wolf! A snowstorm forces a group of the really weird townspeople to settle into an inn with Finn, and oh yeah, one of them is probably a werewolf. Horror / comedy combos aren’t always easy to perform, but the trailer shows that Richardson’s comedic chops are in good shape. Werewolves inside hits theaters on June 25 and on demand on July 2.
As my colleague Chaim Gartenberg pointed out earlier this week, this trailer doesn’t really tell us much about the plot of Eternals, the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We see how the Eternals, a band of immortal heroes, have helped humans through the ages. But something is wrong, because as Salma Hayek says in the voice-over: “We watched and guided. We have helped them move forward and they have seen them work miracles. Over the years, we have never interfered – until now. The cast includes Gemma Chan, Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Hayek, Lia McHugh, Don Lee, Richard Madden and Kit Harington, and is directed by Chloé Zhao, whose Nomadland won the Oscars for Best Picture and Best Director. Eternals is scheduled for release in November.
Mark Wahlberg stars as a man haunted by memories he doesn’t recognize because he’s surprised! he is an Infinite, a person who has had multiple past lives and is part of a secret group of warriors trying to save humanity from one of their own, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor. This is one of many movies whose release date has been shifted from last summer due to the pandemic, but strangely, it is not getting a theatrical release. Based on the book The Reincarnationist Papers through Eric Maikranz, Endlessly also stars Sophie Cookson, Jason Mantzoukas, Rupert Friend, Toby Jones and Dylan O’Brien, and was directed by Antoine Fuqua. It comes out June 10 on Paramount Plus.
This is the first official trailer for the latest M. Night Shyamalan movie (we got a teaser during the Super Bowl (and side note, what’s the difference between teasers and trailers?) A family (and others) on a beach vacation starts soon aging and adds years within hours Is it something in the water We don’t know Gael Garcia Bernal, Eliza Scanlen, Thomasin McKenzie, Aaron Pierre, Alex Wolff, Vicky Krieps, Abbey Lee, Embeth Davidtz, Rufus Sewell and Ken Leung play in Old, which hits theaters on July 23.
A movie based on a Disneyland ride starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt. Okay why not, we base movies on books, video games and board games so this is the next logical step, right? And the second trailer for this movie gives a glimpse of Jesse Plemons, usually a sign that things are heading in the right direction. Jungle Cruise is coming to theaters and Disney Plus (with Premier Access) on July 30.
