Dad’s Army hits the big screen

Dad's Army hits the big screen

So the first trailer for the reboot of Dad’s Army is out.

It hits the big screens in 2016. It has Toby Jones as Captain Mainwaring, Michael Gambon as Prviate Godfrey, Bill Nighy as Sergeant Wilson, Tom Courtenay as Lance-Corporal Jack Jones, Bill Paterson as Private Fraser and Daniel Mays as Private Joe Walker. And Catherine Zeta-Jones will set pulses racing in her role as visiting journalist Rose Winters

Any reboot is always a challenge, however I am quite looking forward to watching this when it comes out. The characters are not quite the same as the long running TV series. Bill Nighy though makes the role of Sergeant Wilson his own.

Though Tom Courtenay makes a cracking Corporal Jones.

Jurassic World Trailer

Stop what you’re doing and watch the trailer for the new film in the Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World.

I am not sure if I am impressed or disappointed.

What do you think?

World War Z

A three minute clip of World War Z has been released.

Despite the poor reviews and perceptions of this film, I might go and see it, well wait until it comes out on DVD.

The books is very different to what I have seen of the film,  so you might want to get a copy of  World War Z and have a read.

See some photographs from Glasgow where they filmed the above scene.

Red Dawn Trailer

Now we can see the full Red Dawn trailer.

I have to admit I enjoyed the original Red Dawn movie when it came out in 1984 and do rewatch it now and again.

The remake has been in the works for a fair few years now, same basic storyline as the 1984 movie, but this time no Russians or Cubans, now we have Chinese, sorry now it’s North Korean, invaders. They were going to be Chinese, but the movie makers realised that if they did that then they would be unable to show it in the China market and that’s a lot of potential tickets and money.

Looks like it could be fun. So far no real trailer, but there was some footage recently on Entertainment Tonight.

Update: ah the vagaries of YouTube means that the video has been removed by Open Road Films…
