As promised a post a day but owing to personal engagements yesterday, could not post. To that effect, will be doing a 2 in 1 post to cover for yesterday.
I’ll be talking about the trailers for 2 movies slated to be released this month of January, 2014. First off, is JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT.
Now after seeing this trailer i must say my mind has been captured by it not just by the fact that it’s an action and thriller movie, but its based on the works of the late Tom Clancy. Directed by Kenneth Branagh, Shadow Recruit stars Chris Pine as Jack Ryan (really hope he performs), Keira Knightley as Cathy Ryan, and Kevin Costner as William Harper. The plot centers around Jack Ryan, as a young covert CIA analyst, who uncovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S. economy with a terrorist attack. Judging from the trailer and the script, the movie might just kick-start the month and the new year on the right note.
Expected Rating: 7.5/10
In theaters on the 17th of January 2014.
Next up is I, FRANKENSTEIN
Who loved Underworld? Awesome movie. Infact it’s among my top 5 vampire movies of all time (not like i have watched so many though). Well the producers have decided to bring us another movie in that form except this time the focus ain’t on Vampires and werewolves, rather it’s on Frankenstein. Directed by Stuart Beattie, I Frankenstein casts Yvonne Strahovski as Terra (missed her from TV Show Chuck), Bill Nighy as Naberius, Miranda Otto as Leonore and Aaron Eckhart as Adam.
The plot is about Frankenstein’s creature who finds himself caught in an all-out, centuries old war between two immortal clans. Ironically from the trailer the movie looks appealing even though we know trailers can be deceiving but i will love to see what the Underworld team would do with this popular story and make it appealing to audiences. Oh did i mention i love the transformation from flying stone gargoyles to human form? Sweet!!! :D
Expected Rating: 6.5 or 7/10
In theaters on 24th January 2014.
So what are your thoughts on both movies? Do share with me in the comments box. Cheers.
