HILARIOUS TRAILER FOR "GRABBERS" WITH RUSSELL TOVEY & RICHARD COYLE! SCARY TRAILER FOR SF ACTION "THE DAY"! ANTHONY MACKIE IS FALCON IN "CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER"

I have two brand new trailers for you today, people. The first one is for apocalyptic thriller THE DAY which opens in theatres later this August. A group of five
 survivors, armed with shotguns, axes and machetes, wander the back roads of a ravaged landscape looking for refuge in the film, a terrifying look into a post apocalyptic future. As war ravages humanity, destroying civilization and most of life on earth, the survivors realize they must do whatever it takes to stay alive. Lost, starving, and exhausted, they seek shelter in a seemingly safe abandoned farmhouse. However, while searching for food and resources, they unwittingly set off a trap signalling to their ruthless predators lying in wait to begin their deadly attack. With food and ammunition dwindling, the group must
make a desperate final stand-over a 24 hour period-battling for their ultimate survival. The cast is lead by Shawn Ashmore, Shannyn Sossamon and Dominic Monaghan.
HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
 More superhero news today as well! I told you yesterday that the official title for the sequel of last year's blockbuster will be CAPTAIN AMERICAN: THE WINTER SOLDIER, and a new update says that rising star Anthony Mackie (you can currently watch him in ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE HUNTER) will join Chris Evans in
 it. According to "MovieWeb" he will play Sam Wilson, a.k.a. The Falcon. He was first introduced in 1969, and is one of the first African American superheroes. His power comes from a suit that gives him super strength and allows him to fly, along with the telepathic ability to communicate with birds. The new title also hints that Sebastian Stan's Bucky Barnes will be brought back to life as The Winter Soldier.

GRABBERS TRAILER
Your second trailer for today is for a delightful and slightly crazy Irish comedy GRABBERS which hits cinemas over at Ireland this August and has two famous British stars Russell Tovey (from BEING HUMAN) and always brilliant and hilarious Richard Coyle (COUPLING) in the lead roles. This rather unusual, but highly original,
 film is a mix of comedy, action and science fiction. The story is set on an island off the coast of Ireland which, for reasons unknown, gets invaded by horrid bloodsucking aliens, after which the heroes of the story discover that getting drunk is the only way to survive.

  1. I knew Bucky would come back. His shock death and crappy fall was all but convicing. I hope Halye Atwell comes back as Sharon Carter

    1. I'd love to see Sebastian Stan again too. Haylee not so much, never liked her, but I know that most guys do... for certain reasons :)

  2. The Day looks very scary. Kind of like a deeper look at one of the more disturbing scenes in McCarthy's The Road.

    And I'm a big fan of Russell Tovey after seeing him in Being Human, but I'm not sure Grabbers, uh, grabbed me. :PP

  11. Love the look of The Day, I'll be checking it out for sure.

    Could not care less about Captain 2. I loathed the first as it had more cheese than the state of Wisconsin.

    1. I must admit, Melsy, that I still haven't seen the film. I do adore Chrissy Evans, but there's no way I'm gonna watch a film about a hero named America....

  12. "An island off the coast of Ireland which, for reasons unknown, gets invaded by horrid bloodsucking aliens, after which the heroes of the story discover that getting drunk is the only way to survive. " Anyone else detect a political analogy in this movie, LOL?

    1. I did detect it, Debs, that's why I put it :) It's the satire on the British invasion of holy Irish territories :(

  13. 'The Day" reminds me of the premise for the HBO series, "The Walking Dead." Still, I'll be checking it out come August.

    "The Grabbers?" Not so much.

    Have you seen "Bernie" with Jack Black yet? I can't find it anywhere here in Manila.

    1. that would be AMC show, not HBO, Jerry :) Yes, even the visual style is similar to the show, the colours....
      I haven't, Jerry, I don't do Jack Black...

  17. The Day is in a genre that I like. Looks like a cross between the original Night of the Living Dead and The Road. Hope it's not overly derivative. Looks like it could be disappointing.
