Everyone, take a moment.
We’ve made it through to Thursday and the weekend is within sight.
Before you leave the office on Friday (or in the current climate, put your pyjamas back on at home), it’s worth watching these two trailers.
In fact, you’re here now, so you may as well knock them on the head this very moment.
The first is a documentary that looks at the life of a comedy legend, John Belushi, who left a rather complicated legacy behind.
This from Vulture:
…the film looks back on the life and career of Belushi through “previously unheard audiotapes” featuring those who knew and worked with him — including Dan Aykroyd, Carrie Fisher, Lorne Michaels, Penny Marshall, Chevy Chase, Jim Belushi, Harold Ramis, Jane Curtin, Ivan Reitman, and Belushi’s wife Judy — and “captures the complicated and singular essence of a beloved American icon who changed culture and comedy forever.”
In a time when comedians were rock stars of sorts, Belushi was up with the wildest of them.
Here’s that trailer:
Belushi will premiere on Showtime on Sunday, November 22.
One down, one to go.
The second trailer worth a squizz sees Tom Hanks starring in his first-ever Western, News of the World.
Hanks plays the role of Captain Jefferson Kyle Kid, with this synopsis via Collider:
Five years after the end of the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Hanks), a widower and veteran of three wars, now moves from town to town as a non-fiction storyteller, sharing the news of presidents and queens, glorious feuds, devastating catastrophes, and gripping adventures from the far reaches of the globe.
In the plains of Texas, he crosses paths with Johanna (Helena Zengel), a 10-year-old taken in by the Kiowa people six years earlier and raised as one of their own. Johanna, hostile to a world she’s never experienced, is being returned to her biological aunt and uncle against her will.
Kidd agrees to deliver the child where the law says she belongs. As they travel hundreds of miles into the unforgiving wilderness, the two will face tremendous challenges of both human and natural forces as they search for a place that either can call home.
With a CV that rivals the best in the business, you can always expect a solid display from Hanks.
Our first glimpse of the movie dropped yesterday:
This is down for a Christmas release.
Let’s just hope Hanks isn’t taken hostage by some QAnon looney before then.
