THE PREDATOR | Moustache Trailer Reaction

The Predator is due for release on 14th September and we finally have a trailer. Written and directed by Shane Black (Hawkins in Predator/writer of Lethal Weapon/director of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang), this is the first Predator movie since 2010's Predators and it looks interesting. I'm also pleased to say there isn't a Xenomorph in site

The official synopsis:
From the reaches of outer space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. Now, the universe's most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA of other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a rag tag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
Well that all sounds very dramatic! Without giving too much away, the trailer does hint at the plot. We get to see Boyd Holbrook's Quinn McKenna being interrogated by a Government man about a mission that went wrong, during which an "alien" is hinted at. This is apparently the mission where McKenna gets hold of some Predator tech which he mails to himself, only for his son Rory (Jacob Tremblay) to discover it. Rory then appears to accidentally cause a ship in Earth's orbit to crash land, triggering this whole mess.

Casey Bracket (Olivia Munn) - the aforementioned science teacher - speaks about "hybridisation" and how the Predators are using the DNA of other species to enhance their own abilities. There's an interesting shot of some artefacts in a glass cabinet - two masks and a shoulder mounted gun - probably from previous Predator movies. We know this is set in the same universe as the previous movies and that Jake Busey will be playing the son of Peter Keyes, his father Gary's character from Predator 2.

There are some shots of at least one Predator doing what they do best. Some general action shots mixed with shots of some of the ex-soldiers, including Keegan-Michael Key, Thomas Jane, Trevante Rhodes and Alfie Allen. Of course we get to hear that well-known Predator growl, and one of their signature tri-lasers is seen pointed at Munn's character.

Ever since it was announced that Shane Black was making a new Predator movie, I have been more than slightly intrigued. Now we have a trailer and things are looking very interesting. This trailer does what it should; give a few hints and introduce a few characters while providing snippets of the action. And it does all of that without giving too much away, granted it's a Predator movie, we already know the basics. But with Shane Black at the helm and some - shall we say - upgraded Predators running around, I am very excited to see the return of the galaxy's greatest hunter!

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…

Dune | Moustache Trailer Reaction

Like one of the massive space ships that feature within it, the trailer for Denis Villeneuve's take on 'Dune' has landed... and it's magnificent. If you've not seen it, or you simply want to watch it again, you can check it out below:

Trying to tame Frank Herbert's legendary sci-fi novel, it seems, is a challenge like no other. But if anyone is up to the task, it's a fair bet that it's Denis Villeneuve. The French-Canadian director is no stranger to reviving beloved sci-fi properties; Blade Runner 2049 is a worthy sequel to the original Blade Runner, and an outstanding movie in its own right - the best of 2017 in my opinion. Add to that his previous projects (Sicario, Arrival, Prisoners), and you've got a director with a talent for combining complex narratives, fascinating characters and stunning visuals, in a way that's both gripping and intelligible.

From the moment the trailer begins you can feel the epic scale of what has been created here. Gr…

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 6 | Home Before Dark

We're back on Apple TV+ this week, checking out one of Apple's new TV shows: Home Before Dark.

As always you can check out the previous post in our Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide by clicking here.

Ever since her Dad took her into the newsroom where he works, nine year old Hilde Lisko (Brooklynn Prince) has been fascinated with journalism. So fascinated in fact, that she started her own newspaper - The Magic Hour Chronicle. But when Matthew Lisko (Jim Sturgess) - Hilde's Father - loses his job, the family is forced to move to Matthew's home town of Erie Harbor, a place he hasn't been back to in many years. There, a chance encounter leads Hilde to look into a thirty year cold case, one that involved the murder of a teenage boy and tore the town apart. Could that be the reason why Hilde's Dad left and never came back?

I will admit that when my fiancé and I were checking out the new content available on Apple TV+ (we had just finished watching the availab…
