Darkest Hour | Moustache Trailer Reaction



The first trailer for Gary Oldman's "Darkest Hour" has arrived. After Brian Cox portrayed Winston Churchill during the build up to D-Day earlier this year, Oldman is now playing the war time leader at the point in which he became Prime Minister. A time when he faced defeat in Europe as well as a German invasion, lack of support from his own party and an unprepared public.


If Cox's 'Churchill' was about the man behind the public persona, 'Darkest Hour' looks to be more about the leader as seen by the public. Gary Oldman seems to have slipped into the shoes of the man that led this nation to victory very well. Even in the trailer Oldman's performance is very powerful, throughout the trailer we get to see him deliver some of his famous speeches in rousing fashion. The scene where he screams at Stephen Dillane's 'Viscount Halifax' for interrupting him is almost enough to make the viewer stand to attention!


It really is a dark time for Churchill; having just been appointed he must rally the nation and turn the war effort around, all whilst his own party plot against him. But where others in the party want to negotiate for peace, Churchill knows there is no negotiating with Hitler, there's only victory or defeat! And Gary Oldman's performance looks to bring this complicated man and his incredible story to life beautifully.


From the director of Atonement, Joe Wright and with a supporting cast including Kristin Scott Thomas as Clementine Churchill, Ben Mendelsohn as King George VI and Lily James as Churchill's personal secretary, Elizabeth Nel, Darkest Hour really is a movie to look out for! In fact after 'Churchill', 'Their Finest', 'Dunkirk' and now 'Darkest Hour' 2017 is looking like a great year for movies about British involvement in World War 2!

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so!


Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically differen…

Dates for Phase 5 of the MCU may have been Leaked

After unveiling Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at Comic Con last month, it's believed that plans for Phase 5 will be announced at D23. But have some of the release dates may have already been leaked?



Charles Murphy (@_CharlesMurphy) - someone who is known for revealing accurate info - has tweeted possible release dates for two upcoming movies. According to Murphy (which "could be subject to change"), Black Panther 2 will arrive in cinemas on 18th February 2022, and will be followed by Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on 6th May 2022. These dates are similar to the movies that preceded them, Black Panther was released on 13th February 2018 and GOTG Vol. 2 on 27th April 2017. Both movies had a lot of success in their respective slots, so it makes sense that Marvel would attempt to continue that success with future instalments. It has also been confirmed by James Gunn, that he won't be working on GOTG Vol. 3 until after he's completed production of "The …

JOJO RABBIT | Moustache Teaser Reaction

If Top Gun: Maverick is the most exciting teaser of late, then the teaser trailer for "Jojo Rabbit" has got to be the most bizarre. If you haven't seen it, check it out below:


Taika Waititi's latest movie is based on the book "Caging Skies" by Christine Leunens, and tells the story of Jojo "Rabbit" Betzler (Roman Griffin Davis). A member of the Hitler Youth, Jojo's world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic. And the only person he has to turn to as he attempts to deal with all that he's going through, is his imaginary friend...Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi).

Now I know what you're thinking; "this sounds bat shit insane!" And to be fair, you're probably right. But Jojo Rabbit looks - in true Waititi fashion - absolutely hysterical. It is definitely something you have to see to believe, and that's just the trailer. One thing fans of …
