Nieuwe Trailers: Aretha Franklin, Coen-broers, 3e seizoen v ‘True Detective’ en thriller ‘Captive State’

Hey mede-filmverslaafden!

Kwam deze trailers tegen die om verschillende redenen de moeite waard zijn, denk ik. De eerste is die van een nooit eerder vertoonde documentaire uit de ’70’s over de opname van een legendarisch live-album v Aretha Franklin. Die moet ik echt zien! Dit is het verhaal:

Amazing Grace
Once upon a time, Aretha Franklin recorded a double album from two shows she did at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in 1972. Sydney Pollack happened to capture the concerts for posterity; for a variety of reasons, the film was kept from seeing the light of day. Now, four decades and some change later, we’ll finally get to see the Queen of Soul making what is routinely considered to be one of the greatest live recordings ever. It world-premieres at the Doc NYC Film Festival on Nov. 12th. We’re praying for word on a proper theatrical run.


The Ballad of Buster Scruggs
Six stories, two brothers, one genre — Joel and Ethan Coen’s Western anthology hit theaters on Friday and will start streaming on Netflix on Nov. 16th. (See it in theaters if you can; it works wonders on the big screen.) You get everything from Tim Blake Nelson as a singing gunfighter to Tom Waits as a literal gold digger on the cusp of finding the mother lode — as well as laughs, poetry, blood, sweat, tears, thrills, spills, chills, movie stars and death. [Spoiler: Lots of death.] It’s most definitely a Coen brothers joint, trust us.


Captive State
This second teaser for the new movie from Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt starts out like a conspiracy thriller: propaganda about a brave new world, men in ski masks taking whisking an innocent bystander away, shots of an urban city in ruins, a massive pageant in a football stadium, furtive glances between folks, some rioting and a voiceover that promises that we will rise up, etc. It’s all very standard paranoia, Big-Brother-is-out-to-get-you stuff, until … wait, what the fuck is that thing that’s standing there, sort of click-growling and causing people to scream?! Ok, you have our attention. This hits theaters on Mar. 29th, 2019.

Je kent de hoofdrolspeler v het 3e seizoen v True Detective oa van House of Cards en hij won een Oscar voor de film Moonlight. Hopelijk is seizoen 3 weer op (of boven) het niveau van het eerste seizoen. S2 vond ik wat tegenvallen…

True Detective, Season 3
Come back with us to 1980, when Detective Wayne Hays (Mahershala Ali) catches a missing-kids case in the Ozarks. It seems like it should be an open-and-shut deal, right? Given that it’s the narrative of Nic Pizzolatto’s latest crime-anthology installment, we’re assuming that answer is a very solid nope. The trailer for the HBO show’s third season looks like the new season is juggling three different timelines, serious racial tension, creepy looking stoner dudes, angry parents and some pulpy ennui. It premieres on Jan. 19th. Fingers crossed that a) it’s not as bad as Season 2 and b) this one wins Ali an Emmy.
