Okay, so I got off my repeat track and drank Far away on Netflix on Labor Day and … I really wanted to like it! The acting was so good and looked beautiful, but the script just strained the confidence at every turn.
It began promisingly with an incident aboard the spacecraft that made the rest of the crew wonder if first-time commander Emma Green (Hillary Swank) was really up to the long-term mission to direct them to Mars. And there are great performances of first-class staff.
I just wish the writers had resisted the desire to include standard rom-com tension and endless Eureka! moments (e.g., a man on Earth receives a static electric shock and realizes that it may be key to helping the space crew from his last misfortune!) and we could completely eliminate the B-plot of Green̵
Also cool: my complete joy Verge colleagues with experience watching the trailer for the new Dune remake. I haven’t seen the 1984 movie or read the novel, so I’m general Dune neophyte. But apparently the sandworm is a big shocking deal, and fear is the killer of the mind. Here is the analysis of the trailer team. Dune is scheduled to arrive in theaters on December 18.
And here are a few more trailers to watch, including one that is one hundred percent specially adapted for this former English major:
“A young bride arrives at her husband’s imposing family mansion on a ventilated English coast and turns out to be battling the shadow of his first wife, Rebecca, whose legacy lives in the house long after her death.” I mean, just inject this into my veins. right now. Rebecca is a 1938 Gothic novel by Daphne du Morier, made by Alfred Hitchcock in a film starring Lawrence Olivier and Joan Fontaine, which won an Oscar for Best Picture in 1941 (see this trailer here). This remake includes Lily James as the second Madame de Winter, Armi Hammer as Maxim and Christine Scott Thomas (yesssss) as Mrs. Danvers. Rebecca visits Netflix (and select theaters) on October 21.
This documentary is about men looking for rare truffles from Alba in Piedmont, Italy, and the beautiful landscapes in the trailer scenes make it more like a feature film. Diversity says, however, that not everything is idyllic in the countryside; Climate change and deforestation are very real threats to this age-old tradition. But the directors approach the topic “with respect, curiosity and awe”, Diversitythe review says. Truffle hunters is scheduled to arrive in theaters on December 25.
This series is about former sneakerhead Devin, now a father who stays at home, who is still obsessed with finding a pair of zeros, a kind of sacred grail of sneakers. Minor spoiler: this is not just a sneaker show. Alan Maldonado plays the role of Devin and honestly he is so funny and charming in the trailer that I can’t wait to watch him. Sneakers arrives on Netflix on September 25th.
