Wicked Movie: Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo cast!

Good news!

That’s right it has eventually happened we have casting news for the Wicked Movie version that has been talked about for so many years now that I have even lost count. It is one of the most successful and well loved stage musicals of all time, I myself have seen it nine times since first seeing it on Broadway back in 2009. (I even had a truly wonderful birthday cake for my 30th birthday that was Wicked themed). It is a truly fantastic show with so many outstanding songs and along with a good story with some amazing points to it all.

No Man of God

Delve deep into the darkly twisted mind of America’s most notorious serial killer

Starring Elijah Wood and Luke Kirby

‘Gripping… Kirby’s performance puts its queasy hooks in you’ – Variety

‘An electric duo, bonded by terrible, impenetrable truths that would make any “normal” person shudder’ – Indie Wire

‘For the unforgettable performances and skin-crawling realism alone… a must-see’ – Film Inquiry

First UK Trailer

Delve into the dark and twisted mind of one of America’s most notorious serial killers – Ted Bundy – in No Man of God a darkly disturbing new feature that’s set for its UK Premiere at FrightFest 2021, followed by its digital release on 13 September and on DVD and Special Edition Blu-ray on 25 October 2021.

The film follows a rarely seen moment in criminal history, after Bundy was sentenced to death and waited to meet his maker, the FBI sent in one of their top analysts to interrogate the murderer to try and find out the full extent of his crimes, his motives and to find answers for his heinous crimes to help the victims’ families.

Directed by Amber Sealey (How to Cheat) and penned by C. Robert Cargill (Doctor Strange) based on actual interview transcripts, the critically acclaimed film features outstanding performances from a stellar cast that sees Elijah Wood as FBI analyst Bill Hagmaier, the man tasked by FBI boss (Robert Patrick) to get inside the mind of the infamous killer, Ted Bundy played in an unnervingly convincing turn by Luke Kirby.

Bundy’s (Luke Kirby – The Marvelous Mrs. MaiselHalloween: Resurrection) reign of terror – that saw him kidnap, rape and murder many young women and girls, across numerous states and many years – ended with multiple death sentences, with the full extent of his crimes still to be realised. Bill Hagmaier (Elijah Wood – The Lord of the RingsEternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) was tasked with understanding how truly dangerous Bundy was and to give solace to victims’ families. Taken from real-life transcripts and revolving around a singular interrogation room, the mind of Bundy is explored in a lesser known period of his life on death row, from 1984 to the day of his execution in 1989. 

With time running out before the serial killer is given the chair, will Hagmaier be able to get closure for the families searching for answers? 

See the real face of evil in No Man of God, a truly terrifying real-crime horror.

Trailer: Cruella (2021)

So we have the trailer for the latest live action make the bad person look good film from Disney with Cruella. The worst thing is I am such a huge fan of Emma Stone (the rest of the cast is impressive as well) and then I just think this looks utterly pointless. Cruella DeVille wanted to kill puppies to make coat, I mean how is that going to be turned around or even approached?

Although I guess we can just assume that it will all be because a man broke her heart like in Maleficent right?

I place myself firmly on the fence whether I will actually watch this or not, I mean the more interesting thing will be if it goes straight to Disney+ and how much you will have to pay to watch it.

Thoughts? Will you be watching this one?
