'Ghost in the Shell' Film Trailer Preview


The first clips to upcoming Japanese classic 'Ghost in the Shell' has been released, and a fan has pieced them together to form its first teaser trailer.

Controversially starring Scarlett Johansson as The Major, a cyborg human hybrid, that leads a team to take down an enemy of computer hackers, intent of bringing a cyber technology company down.


Whilst the original was made at a time and context that really resonated with Japan, whether this becomes a hit as well in its obviously westernised take or another piece of nostalgia cash cow remains to be seen.

The film premieres March 2017. Check out the first trailer below:

'Passengers' Film Trailer Preview

There seems to now always be this one sci-fi space movie that comes out every year with awards bait written all over it... we had Gravity, Interstellar, The Martian... and now it seems 'Passengers' is filling that role (or is it in contention with 'Arrival'?).



Starring two of Hollywood's most sought after stars, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are two space colonists awoken early in cryogenic sleep on a routine journey to a new space home. 90 years too early. The two eventually fall in love, but when they discover that the ship is malfunctioning, they must try to save themselves, and the 5000 other people on board.

Whilst the two stars will be enough to draw a large audience, the trailer suggests that the film will boast spectacular visuals and some exciting action. I just hope that the romance isn't always this cheesy, and that there is some deeper and more complex plot.

The film will be released this December. Check out the trailer below:

'Nocturnal Animals' Film Trailer Preview



Following his film debut of 'A Single Man', Tom Ford's second film looks to be an awards hit, having just won the Venice Grand Jury prize.

With a great support cast including Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Armie Hammer and Isla Fisher, this looks to be one crazy film, if the trailer is anything to go by.
