Happy Friday, good people.
As we begin to clock watch, counting down the minutes until the weekend kicks off (around 3PM latest in Cape Town), having a gander at a few movie trailers always goes down a treat.
Last week, we featured these three, and we’re kicking off today’s round-up with a new trailer for the long-awaited Dune remake.
It was released yesterday, eight months after the first trailer, and Space says it’s “guaranteed to send tingles down your spine”:
A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, “Dune” tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people.
As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
In it, we get a pretty decent look at the main characters, like Timothée Chalamet (as Paul Atreides), Charlotte Rampling (Reverend Mother Gaius Mohiam), Josh Brolin (Gurney Halleck), Jason Momoa (Duncan Idaho), and Oscar Isaac (Duke Leto Atreides).
Dune will be released on October 22, so the wait must go on.
Last month, we saw a teaser trailer for Neill Blomkamp’s new supernatural horror, and now the full trailer is here.
Titled Demonic, Movieweb says some pretty impressive technology was used during the making of the film:
Blomkamp and the Demonic filmmakers utilized a new patent-pending method of volumetric capture, a form of technology that scans an actor from all sides and re-creates them in digital form. It’s been compared to the tech found in the Microsoft Kinect camera on the Xbox One and has been used by the VR and visual effects industries.
Demonic is reportedly using the most volumetric capture ever seen in a movie to date, and you can catch a good look at the technology on display in the movie’s new official trailer.
That we do:
Demonic will be released in cinemas and via Video On Demand from August 20.
To finish, something a little more lighthearted – American Sausage Standoff.
The upcoming Western comedy follows two men who find themselves on opposite sides of a conflict revolving around opening a small town’s first German sausage restaurant.
Below via Collider:
The trailer introduces us to Mike (Starr), a hustler and dreamer fresh out of prison who finds himself in the small town of Gutterbee and learns that one of its locals, Edward, has always had the humble ambition of opening his own sausage restaurant.
However, there are plenty of people in Gutterbee prepared to resist the idea of change, including Jimmy (Brown), the local kingpin who has been scaring off anyone who could prove a threat to their small-town ways and traditions.
Will Mike and Edward succeed at realizing their true American dream, or is it possible they’ve bitten off more than they can chew?
I dunno, I haven’t seen the movie.
The best we can do is that trailer:
American Sausage Standoff will be released in US theatres on August 27.
Right, that’s your three trailers perused.
