Trailers Week 47: 31/05/15

Point Break
This remake of Katheryn Bigelow's classic 1991 surfer heist flick looks like it goes in a completely different direction. Instead of Bodhi's gang being selfish bank robbers, they are now Robin Hood type figures. All I want to see is the return of the Richard Nixon mask. Aussie actor Luke Bracey stars as Johnny Utah and Édgar Ramírez as Bodhi. Also starring Teresa Palmer and Ray Winstone.

The End of the Tour
This biopic is about a five day road trip journalist David Lipsky had with the late acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace during the tour of his classic book Infinite Jest. This movie looks like it might provide an insight into the tortured soul of Wallace. Starring Jason Segel as Wallace and Jesse Eisenberg as Lipsky.

The Diary of a Teenage Girl
This quirky comedy is about a teenage girl exploring her sexuality and recording the process of it. I think there needs to be more movies like this so that everybody (especially young women) feel comfortable with their bodies the way they are. Starring Bel Powley, Chris Meloni, Kristen Wiig and Alexander Skarsgård sporting a rather sleazy moustache.

Pawn Sacrifice
Tobey Maguire stars as chess prodigy Bobby Fischer, who was used in a ploy to heighten the US' perceived intellectual dominance over the Soviets by playing against their best player, Boris Spassky. Also starring Liev Schreiber and Lily Rabe.

A Walk in the Woods
Robert Redford is usually in serious movies that have a political or survivalist aspect to them. This latest one looks to be more of a comedy about two old friends who attempt to hike the Appalachian trail before they die. While I'm sure there will be serious moments, it looks like it will be a lot of fun. Also starring Nick Nolte, Mary Steenburgen and Emma Thompson.

Cop Car
This thriller is about two boys who come across an abandoned cop car and decide to take it for a ride. Soon they find out that it belongs to a corrupt sheriff who will do anything to retrieve the car. Starring Kevin Bacon.

American Ultra
This stoner sleeper spy action comedy says it all in the genre. Jesse Eisnberg, Kristen Stewart, Connie Britton and Topher Grace star.

The Face of an Angel
We get a closer look at Michael Winterbottom's drama about a journalist who is investigating the murder of a tourist in Italy. Starring Daniel Brühl, Kate Beckinsale and Cara Delevingne.
