Daredevil trailer

Here’s the trailer for Marvel’s brand new series, Daredevil.

The show debuts on Netflix on April 10.

It stars British actor Charlie Cox (last seen in The Theory of Everything) as Matt Murdock whom after being blinded as a young boy, fights against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the Super Hero “Daredevil” in modern day Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.

The show also features Vincent D’Onofrio and Rosario Dawson.

New Home clips

Here’s a couple of clips from new DreamWorks animation Home.

The film features great voice cast including Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez.

When Oh (Jim Parsons), a loveable misfit from another planet, lands on Earth and finds himself on the run from his own people, he forms an unlikely friendship with an adventurous girl named Tip (Rihanna) who is on a quest of her own.

Through a series of comic adventures with Tip, Oh comes to understand that being different and making mistakes is all part of being human.

And while he changes her planet and she changes his world, they discover the true meaning of the word Home.

The film is released in the UK on March 20.

2015 preview: Films

There are so many films that I’m already looking forward to in 2015 but I have managed to narrow the list down to just ten.

Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie: you might think ‘oh, good grief!’ But I always enjoy a bit of Charlie Brown and the gang. The trailer looks a lot of fun and the use of computer animation isn’t distracting at all.

The Minions Movie: Minions make me giggle. That’s all.

Jurassic World: I still remember sitting in the cinema watching the opening five minutes of Jurassic Park and thinking ‘oh this is going to be good!’. Unfortunately the two sequels never quite lived up to the first. Can this new film, directed by Colin Treverrow, take us back to the magic and wonder of the first?

Birdman: a but of a cheat this one as I’ve already seen it – but it’s not out in the UK until 2015! Michael Keaton is on top form as the former superhero actor trying to kickstart his career by starring in, and directing, a Broadway play. The supporting cast are also excellent – particularly Emma Stone as is daughter. But my favourite thing about Birdman is the craft that’s gone into making the film – the idea of just a single shot through the whole film, I think it’s incredibly clever!

Whiplash: I’m calling it now, you won’t see a better onscreen villain in 2015 than JK Simmons’ horrific music teacher. He’s brutal! Miles Teller holds his own but it’s Simmons who has the showier role and he absolutely runs with it. An Oscar is surely in the bag. Whilst there are plot points in the film that I could see coming the ending was fantastic. It’s a great movie.

Selma: British actor David Oyelowo stars as Martin Luther King in the drama which focuses on his campaign for civil rights and the march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, in 1965. Oprah Winfrey is among the supporting cast.

Spectre: Bond is back! But no Judi Dench this time. Can director Sam Mendes emulate the phenomenal success of Skyfall? I’ve never been a huge fan of 007 but I am looking forward to the new film. Plus, who’s going to perform the theme song?

Tomorrowland: George Clooney leads the cast of this scifi mystery about a former boy-genius and a gifted teenager who set out on a dangerous mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic location caught between time and space. The cast also includes Hugh Laurie and young actress Britt Robinson. It’s directed by Brad Bird who made the last Mission: Impossible movie as well as Pixar’s The Incredibles so I think it should be in safe hands.

Avengers: Age of Ultron: Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America (and the others) back on screen together. I just can’t wait! Director Joss Whedon’s brought the whole gang back (we might even get to see Tom Hiddlestone’s Loki). Avengers Assemble set the bar so high, can they reach those heights again? Or even top them? We’ll find out in April.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens: did you really think I wouldn’t include this in my list of must-see films? Of course it tops the list! The first film I ever saw at the cinema was Star Wars, it is the franchise that I have loved for over 30 years. And it’s back. And I can not wait until December!!

So that’s my top 10 must-see movies for 2015. Close but no cigar mentions for Love is Strange, Blackhat, Cinderella, Frankenstein, The Lady in the Van and Absolutely Anything.
