Southpaw and Spectre Trailers
Training Day director Antoine Fuqua disappointed me with last year's The Equalizer. However, I will definitely give him another chance to impress this July when he premieres the boxing drama, Southpaw. An almost unrecognizable Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Billy Hope, a bruising fighter who work his way to the top just as his world starts to crumble around him. Gyllenhaal gave an unbelievable Oscar-snubbed performance in Nightcrawler last year, and I'll watch just about anything he does at this point. Southpaw's boxing backdrop is just icing on the cake.
American Beauty filmmaker, Sam Mendes, took the reigns of the James Bond franchise with 2012's Oscar-winning Skyfall. He returns this November with the highly anticipated follow up, Spectre. Daniel Craig reprises his role of James Bond as a cryptic message from his past directs him to a sinister organization. With the phenomenal Christoph Waltz in a villainous role, the sky is the limit for this newest installment. Check out the debut teaser trailer for Sam Mendes' Spectre below.
