The Last Jedi trailer is here…
I think a few people will see Star Wars: The Last Jedi in movie theaters this Christmas. The film’s director and screenwriter Rian Johnson continues to show that he’s the real deal within the beloved fictional cinematic world of Star Wars.
Is it Christmas yet?
Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
“Flashback Friday” is a thing in American culture.
But what about “Flash-Forward Friday”?
Murder on the Orient Express was a very well-received 20th century novel by Agatha Christie. In part, that praise may be the result of the stunning views and luxurious cabins that make up a train ride on and along the Orient-Express.
Returning to Ms. Christie’s literary prowess, some may argue that her engaging mystery is a giant in the realm of crime fiction. And the reason the aforementioned category “crime fiction” is not limited to books in the previous sentence is because, as it’s turning out, Murder on the Orient Express is looking more and more like a thrilling cinematic ride in its own right.
Slated for theatrical release on November 10, 2017, the film’s cast (Kenneth Branagh, Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley, Michelle Pfeiffer, Judi Dench, Penélope Cruz, Josh Gad, Leslie Odom Jr., Willem Dafoe) is preparing audiences for unrestrained (ironic, yes, I know) chaos this November that can only be matched by our own wild and crazy Thanksgiving dinners.
Here’s an early Thanksgiving treat: A second helping of sorts for Murder on the Orient Express in the form of its second (and recently released) trailer.
Should I read the book or just wait and see the movie?
Reading is fun, that’s true. However, if I read the book before seeing the film and, thereby, discover all the entertaining spoilers, would I go mental? To that I might say, duh.
That never-ending, fundamental conundrum continues to (metaphorically) kill book and movie lovers. The back-and-forth book vs. movie debate will never reveal its definitive killer and victim (of sorts) to the end of providing a standardized answer in every person’s case…
unlike a certain train full of fascinatingly suspicious passengers.
Did you know yesterday’s blog post, “An Eternal Rey of Light,” was going to have a sequel?
Like most sequels, this blog post will be heavy on the action.
Continuing on the legacy of famed composer John Williams, specifically concerning his track titled, “Rey’s Theme” from The Force Awakens soundtrack, it seems prudent to show a brief interview with Rey herself:
Actress Daisy Ridley.
In this interivew, Ms. Ridley discusses her reaction to her theme song and, more importantly, the man who came up with said theme.
And here’s a bonus clip of John Williams discussing The Force Awakens and Rey.
That’s what you call being pitch perfect.
The whole “murder thing” aside, the Orient Express looks like the quality of train Sheldon Cooper would enjoy.
Murder on the Orient Express will hit movie theaters this November.
The vibe of this film is a fun, yet sinister murder mystery with as many twists-and-turns as a train is structurally able to endure. And the star-studded cast (Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley, Kenneth Branagh, Michelle Pfeiffer, Judi Dench, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe, Leslie Odom Jr. and Josh Gad) has the potential to elevate a standard whodunit to a clever and surprising edge of your seat cinematic puzzle.
One guarantee for Murder on the Orient Express:
This film will be a character-driven thrill ride.
