Alright, it’s time to unwind with a few trailers.
It’s become something of a Friday tradition, and it sure beats keeping an eye on the actual news.
Apologies to sufferers of ophidiophobia – the snake picture will make sense in due course.
Let’s begin with a Bruce Willis film that hits just a touch close to home in the current climate, Breach.
The plot begins with the fact that a deadly plague has wiped out most of Earth’s population.
Yeah, too close to home. Here’s The Verge:
…300,000 survivors, including Bruce Willis and Thomas Jane, are headed to “New Earth” in a very safe spacecraft where nothing will go wrong and no one will turn into a hideous drooling space monster.
Haha I jest, of course, and since this is a Bruce Willis movie you know there will be gunfire and witty quips sprinkled throughout the mayhem.
Much gunfire, sure, but the witty quips is debatable.
Here’s the trailer:
Breach is due for US release on December 18, 2020.
Let’s turn that action nozzle down a tad with our second trailer, and the indomitable Meryl Streep.
This one involves a cruise trip, which is definitely not recommended at this moment in time, reports Variety:
The comedy follows a renowned author, Alice Hughes (Streep), who embarks on a journey with old friends in the hopes of healing old wounds. Her nephew also comes along to accompany the ladies, until he finds himself involved with a young literary agent.
As they are all stuck together on a cruise ship, tensions begin to rise, and Streep’s character is forced to confront the ways in which she may have hurt the ones she loves the most.
By virtue of Meryl’s involvement, we’ll give it a go:
Let Them All Talk is set for release on December 10 on HBO Max.
Let’s finish with a true-crime caper that is unique in its subject matter.
This via Alabama News:
One of Alabama’s strangest crime stories was set in motion 29 years ago in Scottsboro, where a Pentecostal preacher’s wife told police her husband tried to kill her, using the snakes he employed in his church services.
The story of Glenn Summerford, convicted on an attempted murder charge and serving a 99-year prison sentence, is the subject of “Alabama Snake,” a documentary directed by Theo Love that premieres next month on HBO and HBO Max.
A press release from WarnerMedia says the “details of the investigation and trial that followed has haunted Southern Appalachia for decades.”
Snakes, attempted murder, a preacher – what a recipe.
Alabama Snake premieres on December 9 on HBO.
