Spider-Man's next big villain and 5 more big trailers you might have missed this week
Some big Oscar contenders in the mix of the new trailers this week.
Romance. Comedies. Dramas. And big, big action.
Loads to get excited about in this week's trailer round-up, starting with...
A CASTLE FOR CHRISTMAS
"Scotland's answer to Wilde Mountain Thyme, except it's set at Christmas." That has been the general consensus to this romantic comedy. You'll understand fully when you watch the trailer.
A Castle For Christmas will arrive on Netflix on 26 November.
THE POWER OF THE DOG
Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons and Kodi Smith-McPhee star in this powerful, emotional western drama. There are currently two movies being talked up a lot as being the front runners for the Best Picture Oscar this year. Kenneth Branagh's Belfast is one. This is the other one.
The Power of the Dog will be available on Netflix from 1 December.
Maybe not the best time for this to be arriving, as it tells the story of the world following the impact of a devastatingly deadly flu. Mackenzie Davis, Himesh Patel, David Wilmot, Gael Garcìa Bernal and more star, with the writer of the incredible The Leftovers running the show.
Station Eleven will debut in the States on 16 December, with no set release date for Irish audiences just yet.
Written and directed by Benjamin Cleary (who is from Dublin, just FYI!), this looks to have some vague elements in common with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, as a man (Mahershala Ali) is diagnosed with a terminal illness, and is offered a way to shield his wife and son from the grief of his death.
Swan Song will debut on Apple TV+ on 17 December.
A JOURNAL FOR JORDAN
Denzel Washington directs this romantic drama based on the true story of an American soldier (Michael B. Jordan) based in Iraq, who keeps a journal of his thoughts and feelings on love and life for his newborn son. And yes, we're already crying.
A Journal For Jordan will arrive in Irish cinemas on 21 January 2022.
Considering the two Venom movies have made a combined $1.3 billion at the box office (and counting), of course Sony were going to bring more famous Spider-Man villains to the big screen. This time, we meet Doctor Morbius (Jared Leto), who has successfully discovered a cure for his life-threatening illness... but at the cost of being a vampire.
Morbius arrives in Irish cinemas on 28 January 2022.
