Fiction, Action and Exaggeration

Surrounded by a certain mystery about its screenplay,10 Cloverfield Lanewill hit theatres tomorrow. This is a film that takes place in the same universe as Cloverfieldreleased a little less than ten years ago. On the trailers we find a young woman locked in a cellar by the man she thinks is her kidnapper. The latter explains to her that she must not go out, because there is a mortal danger lurking outside. The rest is easy to guess… The film scores 8 out of 10 on IMDb (7.1 out of 10 forCloverfiledfirst of the name) against 7.5 out of 10 on Senscritique (5.8 for the first opus).

If you’re a fan of action, twists and police investigations, thenTriple 9should interest you: “Michael Atwood and his team of corrupt cops attack a bank in broad daylight. While investigating this spectacular robbery, Detective Jeffrey Allen is still unaware that his own nephew Chris, a police officer of integrity, is now the partner of one of thethugs. This film scores 6.9 out of 10 on IMDb and 6.8 out of 10 on SensCritique.

A French comedy will also be playing:Marseille(nothing like the Netflix series). It is directed by Kad Merad, who also plays the role of Paolo, a man from Marseilles who has moved to Canada and is returning home to see his father. He gives the line to Patrick Bosso who plays his brother; a story of love and family.

In the name of my daughteris a Franco-German drama inspired by a true story about the struggle of a father (Daniel Auteuil) who, following the death of his daughter, will do anything to shed light on this drama. Finally, fans of fiction will be able to go to the movie theatres to watchEvolution, a rather dark and mysterious film about a village or the ocean shore where strange rituals take place.

From Game of Thrones to Kubo, sword fights rage

As for this week’s announcements, fans ofGame of Throneswill be delighted to discover a trailer for season 6 (watch out for spoils if you haven’t watched previous seasons). After a relatively calm first minute, the fighting resumed.

Universal Pictures presents its next animated film:Kubo and the magic sword. The main character is an intelligent young boy who is a storyteller in a seaside village. But his life will be turned upside down when he mistakenly summoned a demon. To be seen as a family, but if you are patient:Kubo and the magic swordwill only be released on October 12, 2016.

Special children help each other, the Avengers fight each other

20th Century Fox is also banking on fantasy for its next filmMiss Peregrine and the Special Children, a film whose story seems to be an adaptation ofX-Men, but where people have different powers. Jacob is a child like any other, at least that’s what he thought until he arrived at Miss Peregrine’s house. His power? Saving his new friends from terrible enemies. Scheduled to be released in theatres on October 5th.

With one month to go before its theatrical release,Captain America:… Civil Waris entitled to a new trailer. Action, explosions, destruction and fighting of all kinds are obviously on the agenda. There is also the whole Avengers clique or almost, with Spiderman in addition.

For Jacquouille “it’s OK”, while for Harry it’s just beginning

In a very different register, Jacquouille la Fripouille and Godefroy le Hardi return for new adventures inLes Visiteurs 3 : The Revolution. The humour is still as bold as ever and the action takes place during the French Revolution. A host of renowned actors is announced, under the leadership of Jean-Marie Poiré: Christian Clavier, Jean Reno, Marie-Anne Chazel, Franck Dubosc, Karin Viard and Sylvie Testud.

In a little less than a month, a surprising film will be released:Hardcore Henry. Seriously injured, Hary is saved by his wife who turns him into a cyborg. But he’s gonna have to fight to get her back, because she was taken by a psychopath. Special feature of the film: it is entirely filmed in subjective view, as in an FPS.
