A24's Untitled Film Trailer Preview

A24 dropped a surprise new trailer for an upcoming sci-fi film which has yet to receive a title. The cryptic trailer gives glimpses into what the film is about with some intriguing word play:

Beyond Reality- Realise Feeling- Feel Bare- Bear Witness- Witness Change- Change Identity- Identity Questions- Question Life- Live Beyond

Themes of cloning, identity, artificial intelligence and conspiracy are rife within these clips and despite there not being a single recognisable cast member, it is a cleverly put together teaser that has me wanting to know a lot more!

Given A24 also released the sleeper hit 'Ex Machina' in 2014, and was my favourite film of that year, I am extremely interested in what this could be!

Check out the teaser below:

2017 Hottest Films

2016 was a mixed bag of films, but not for Disney, who keep breaking record after record with their films including 'Zootopia', 'Captain America:Civil War', 'Dr Strange' and 'Finding Dory'.

Superhero films continue to dominate the theatres with the release of 'Suicide Squad', 'Star Trek Beyond', 'Batman VS Superman' and 'X-Men: Apocalypse', along with sequels such as 'Jason Bourne', 'Jack Reacher' and 'Now You See Me 2'. 

My vote for best movie of 2016 goes to... Arrival. Denis Villeneuve's near perfect movie is brilliantly clever and one that meaningfully stands out amongst the others.

'Passengers' Film Review

Due to a malfunction, Jim Preston (Chris Pratt) and Aurora Lane (Jennifer Lawrence) are two passengers on a spacecraft travelling to a distant colony planet, who awaken from cryogenic sleep 90 years too early. 

With no method of returning into their hibernation pods, the two must come to terms with living the rest of their life on board the space craft, and with each other. As the ship continues to malfunction, the two attempts to find the source; but Jim's terrible secret threatens to tear the two apart.

Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik 'I Don't Wanna Live Forever' New Single

It might not be a new album, but it would not be right for 2016 to end without new music from pop sensation Taylor Swift, given her usual release schedule of an album every 2 years. It has been two years since her record breaking release of 1989.

'I Don't Wanna Live Forever' is a duet with Zayn Malik for the Fifty Shades Darker Soundtrack, and has already topped the Itunes Chart. Let's hope this is a precursor for more Swift music in 2017!

Check out the new single below:
