Coming Soon Trailers

Ok you have watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens umpteen times by now and you’re ready to see something new. Well here at Deluxe Video Online we took a peek at this weekends upcoming films and wrangled up the trailers for you.

The Revenant

The Revenant attempts to give us a new look at the old west Starring Leonardo Dicaprio and Tom Hardy. Revenant is based on a true story of fur trapper Hugh Glass, who was mauled by a grizzly bear and managed to drag himself 200 miles to safety. ( And just to set the record straight Leo is not raped by the bear.)

Director Alejandro González Iñárritu (Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)) sets out to capture the brutal nature of the landscape and eschews any cgi. The owner of three Academy Awards, Iñárritu is certainly up for the challenge.

A surefire top ten of 2016 even this early on,  The Revenant has been doing quite well in it’s very limited release and we will see if this trendy strategy pays off at the Box Office.

When To See It: Theatres. If Hugh Glass can drag himself 200 miles, you can certainly hop in your car and go check this one out.

The Forest

Natalie Dormer of Game of Thrones fame stars as Sara Price, who travels to Japan compelled with the thought that her twin sister Jess (also Dormer) is in mortal danger.

The Forest is set in Japan’s Aokigahara Forest, infamous for the number of local citizens who go there to commit suicide. While the premise is as probably entertaining for the Japanese as a 9/11 themed  horror flick is to Americans, the trailer turns out to be a complete snoozefest.

When To See It: Never, just go out into the forest on your own and stare at a rock. It’ll probably be as entertaining and you’ll save a few bucks aswell.

The Masked Saint

We have another movie based on a true story this week, Focusing on a pastor’s mission to help his community by risking his identity. By presumably returning to his former life as a wrestler to fight criminals.

I haven’t fact checked this film, and by how boring the trailer was I am not going to bother. For starters we all know wrestling is fake, and the idea that this guy is running around bodyslamming criminals seems laughable. What happens if the gangbanger goes off script? I don’t know, nor do I care.

When to see it: If Monday Night Raw left you feeling empty inside, perhaps you can VOD The Masked Saint.

For VOD this week we get 3 mediocre films:

Machete Kill: Another fun outing with Danny Trejo in the Machete series, and perhaps a bit funnier now that Charlie Sheen has aids.

A Fantastic Fear Of Everything This film was skewered by critics but Simon Pegg is so damn likable you want to check this out.

Summer In February Billed as an epic love story, that is all that I had to hear. As well as Titanic was made it was still boring as shit at times. This is no Titanic folks.
