What Happened to Monday? Official Trailer #1 (2017) Noomi Rapace, Willem Dafoe Sci-Fi Movie HD

 

Tommy Wirkola’s international career had begun badly with Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters, an enticing film on paper who proved to be unsuccessful. After shooting Dead Snow, the director makes another attempt with Seven Sisters, or “What Happened to Monday”? The film is a pleasant surprise and gradually transformed itself into a thriller where the action is carried out with a masterly hand. Wirkola offers a solid history with compelling action sequences and allows himself an exemplary sobriety turning a film concept into a work of explosive science fiction. The fluidity of the staging, the ramifications of the scenario and the universe anchored in the narration make 7 Sisters a success. The rhythm is maintained from the beginning to the end. Do not miss this film, who is never stupid, does not forget to entertain without never betraying its subject.

BAD GENIUS Official International Trailer (2017) | GDH

 

Piano notes, writing on erasers, memory tricks, pencils with a cracked bar code, and more are waiting for you in this comedic suspense. With the elements listed above, it ‘s hard to expect a real suspense as we know it today, but Bad Genius is actually a surprising thriller.
There is no investigator, the narrative takes place in a school, with average students, no shady individual is walking in the dark and above all, there is no murder. The viewer expects secondary dramas rather than suspense, but Bad Genius keep his audience in suspense from the beginning to the end. The cheating scenes are worthy of the biggest scenes of suspense films, where each second seems to last an eternity and where everything can collapse in the space of a few seconds.
The characters are necessarily part of the fascinating aspects of this Thai film. Each of them has his own personality, all are unique, and above all, personages are neither all white nor all black. With them, we are far from the Hollywood productions where the main character is always helped by people who have never no defect…

LOGAN LUCKY | Official HD Trailer

 

We are clearly in the comic book, where Soderbergh sometimes gives a glance at the Coen brothers but without revealing anything about the plot not to spoil any pleasure. In the film, The pictures move from one plan to another without any transition. It’s up to the viewer to fill the gaps and imagine, but explanatory” flashbacks, complete the gap at the end.
If you like the Ocean’s film type, you will not be disoriented. The film certainly does not revolutionize the genre, but we must admit that Logan Lucky is incredibly funny and efficient thanks to an excellent scenario filled with percussive dialogues and crazy characters. Channing Tatum, Adam Driver and Daniel Craig (unrecognizable) form a trio of soc ‘cases we take a cunning pleasure to follow. In summary: a funny breakout comedy with some great actors!
