Zero Dark Thirty Trailer

I am still unsure whether or not i want to see this film or not because its not really my type of film but the trailer looks really good and it intrigues me. Some people i have talked to say its to soon to do a film about Osama bin Laden and i am still unsure whether or not i agree with that but the film does look good and it is more about the 10 year hunt for him.

So the film follows the special forces unit assigned to hunt bin Laden over a 10 year period and has been billed "the story of history's greatest man hunt for the world's most dangerous man" and was directed but Oscar winning director Kathryn Bigelow.

The trailer for the film looks really good, following both the team on the ground and the team back in the states trying to work out how to find bin Laden. Its already been nominated for five Oscars and four Golden Globes so it must be good.

The film stars Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Joel Edgerton, Chris Pratt, Jennifer Ehle, Mark Strong, Kyle Chandler and Edgar Ramirez and reunites the Oscar winning director/writer partnership of Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal who both were involved with the Hurt Locker.

I am still 50/50 whether or not i want to see the film mainly because the action/thriller type films don't really appeal to me but the trailer looks really good and i might just make an exception for this film as it does look really good. Might also have to check out the Hurt Locker as well (still haven't gotten around to seeing it).

The film is released on the 11th January so go and check it out.

Jurassic Park 4

It has been rumored for a while that there was going to be a new film in the Jurassic Park series. But it has been confirmed and a release date has been given!!!

So excited!  I love these films, I have very fond memories from my child hood watching these films, well the first two, the third wasn't that good, but the first two were fantastic.

If you have never seen these films then you should as they are fantastic. The basic run down is that Jon Hammond and a bunch of scientists have decided to make dinosaurs on cloned from DNA found preserved in amber and thus decided to turn it into a theme park, but first to test it out they send in a group of people to test out the park, which then leads things to horribly wrong and for the dinosaurs to start eating people.

The second one is slightly different and set on a different island but the dinosaurs are still there and still eating people but with a few different characters, but they are the . Th third one is a bit different where a kid goes missing on Isla Sorna (the island with the dinosaurs in it) and a rescue mission is hatched to go and find the kid with Dr Alan Grant (Sam Neil) for the first film as he is the only one who has ever been there and things go horribly wrong again!! Seems to be a bit of a pattern, but its still good. If you don't like anything to horrible, its not to bad (except when the guy gets ripped apart by two T-Rex's).

Jeff Goldblum stars in both of the first two films with Sam Neil, Richard Attenborough, Samuel L Jackson, Laura Dern, Julianne Moore, Vince Vaughn all star in either of the two first films.The first film won 3 Oscars and the second was nominated for 1, but they were both worthy of numerous  due to the brilliant mind of Steven Spielberg, i love his films but Jurassic Park is one of my favourites and i can't wait for the fourth one its going to be amazing especially if Spielberg is behind the camera.

If you have never seen Jurassic Park you must!!!

You can but the trilogy on Amazon for £10.19 and the Blu-ray for £9

The film is projected to be released in June 2014 and starting to get excited about it.

Can't wait for the fourth one to come out.

The Mortal Instuments: City of Bones Trailer

I love this book!!!

I am so excited to see this film!! The books were amazing so i have really high hopes for the film.

If you haven't read the book(s) and i strongly recommend them and this is kind of an over view of the story anyway Clary (Lily Collins) and her friend Simon (Robert Sheehan) are out at a club one night they find them selves stumbling into a paranormal world full of shadow hunters, demons, werewolves, vampires, witches and some serious family issues. Everything gets even more complicated when Clary's mum disappears and she ends up mixed up in all sorts of trouble but when she meets Jace Wayland (Jamie Campbell Bower) things start looking up and Clary starts to discover things about herself that her mother has hidden from her and starts to explore the powers she finds and fulfill her destiny with the help of her friends.

I really hope that the film follows the same path as the book does because they are brilliant and the trailer looks amazing so i have very high hopes. Staring along side Lily Collins, Robert Sheehan and Jamie Campbell Bower are Kevin Zegers, Johnathan Rhys Myers, Jamima West, Aidan Turner and Lena Headey.
I really hope that director Harald Zwart manages to make the film incredible and try not to change the story to much because the world that Cassandra Clare has created is fantastic and can't wait to see it one the big screen.

The films isn't due out until the summer so there is plenty of time to read the book before the film which i highly recommend or even re read the book.

The film is due out on the 23rd August 2013.
