As I sat here enjoying a coffee and contemplating college work the inevitable happened.
I started to trawl the internet.
I flicked through my FB account, scrolled through the nights Tumblings and ended up on Youtube.
I wanted to bring your attention to a few things that are on the horizon.
A couple of them not too far away.
The closest one being Child 44. Due for release next week.
Not only does this film star Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Noomi Rapace but it also stars Joel Kinnaman!! alongside an old fellow castmate from Easy money, Fares Fares.
As stated on IMDB, this is a film based on the first of a trilogy by Tom Rob Smith and set in the Stalin era of the Soviet Union. The plot is about an idealistic pro-Stalin security officer who decides to investigate a series of child murders in a country where supposedly this sort of crime doesn’t exist. The state would not hear of the existence of a child murderer let alone a serial killer. He gets demoted and exiled but decides, with just the help of his wife, to continue pursuing the case.
The next is Avengers: Age of Ultron
Due out the week after Child 44 and a film I know is highly anticipated by many.
However, let’s take a moment to contemplate the following….
Forget Robert Downey Jr, forget Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth, forget Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Renner….. let’s take a moment to appreciate that Paul Bettany finally gets to make an appearance.
He has been the voice of the faithful ‘Jarvis’ accompanying Iron Man on all his adventures and now, because of Ultron, he becomes ‘The Vision’
I for one, cannot wait to see Paul like this!
And finally, the cast read throughs have started for next year’s Suicide Suad.
DC’s attempt at keeping up with the Marvel Juggernaut.
With Will Smith attached to the project it should hopefully do quite well.
Oscar winner Jared Leto (although not in this photo) is also in it as The Joker, but if you look closely at the top left of the photo, you’ll see my man Joel Kinnaman with a nice big grin on his face!
He is playing Rick Flagg, who I believe may be the leader of the Squad.
We’ve got a bit of a wait for this one as it’s not due out until August next year.
And now, I really must get this college work done.
