Based on true events, but adapted from the book Horse Soldiers; in the wake of the September 11 attacks, a Special Forces team are sent to Afghanistan, where they combine alliances and go to war with enemy forces. In recent memory, there have been numerous war films that have been breathtakingly deep, including Dunkirk and Hacksaw Ridge. It seems that 12 Strong, starring Chris Hemsworth and Michael Shannon, will be no different and we look forward to seeing it early next year.
This biographical, sports, black comedy is about figure skater Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie) and how her figure skating career took a turn for the worse when the pressure was at boiling point. The movie premiered at the Toronto Film Festival back in September, where it received huge plaudits, and with the trailer finally getting a world-wide release in the past few weeks, the anticipation is only growing and growing.
Steven Spielberg directs the period drama The Post; a story about Kay Graham (Meryl Streep), the first female publisher of the Washington Post, who is faced with the battle of a lifetime as she pushes to publish the Pentagon Papers. This trailer has seen many people discussing Oscar nods, and it has the necessary tools to warrant them, with a great director and cast (that includes Tom Hanks, Sarah Paulson, Bob Odenkirk and Alison Brie). It is a story I wasn’t fully aware of and one that seems to be increasingly important in today’s society.
