Several trailers for interesting things have copped up over the past couple of weeks. Let’s take a look at them!
Edge Of Tomorrow
Based on the novel All You Need Is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, Edge Of Tomorrow has 100% more Tom Cruise than the novel and, of course, a lot of running. Still, the book was very good and any movie that’s a combination of Groundhog’s Day and any aliens invade Earth movie can’t be all bad, right?
HBO is on a roll recently with terrific genre(-ish) fare like Game of Thrones and True Detective. Now they’re adding The Leftovers, the new series from LOST writer and producer Damon Lindelof and based on Tom Perrotta’s novel of the same name. What happens when 2% of the world’s population up and disappears? Subscribe to HBO to find out! Certainly looks interesting…
What happens when you mix the old “humans only use 10% of their brains” canard, Luc Besson, Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman? You get Lucy, which looks like a cross of Limitless and Payback. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing. At the very least we get to see Ms. Johansson kick some serious @$$.
Radio Free Albemuth
Yet another PKD story makes it to the big screen with this indie adaptation of Radio Free Albemuth. It seems to have won many awards at several Independent Film Festivals and has some interesting names hyping the movie. Even with the flat acting and low budget this looks rather intriguing. It’s PKD after all.
