Karyn Kusama’s film Destroyer highlights an ongoing trend of Australian actors working in Hollywood that are unable to disguise their accents (see 2018’s Mary Queen of Scots and anything Sam Worthington).

A sentimental new trailer for Avengers: Endgame has been released and while we see a new look for the Avengers, we’re still none the wiser as to what will actually happen in this film.
Disney brings its signature charm in the first full trailer for Guy Ritchie’s live-action adaptation of the classic animation Aladdin.
Good Boys is basically Superbad (2007) or any other similar American teen-comedy with pre-teens taking over from their slightly older counterparts.
Suppose you had the option in a game of Scrabble to play the word SACCHARINE or ANARCHIC. Saccharine, meaning excessively sweet and sentimental, and anarchic, much to do with lacking control over circumstances, are both worth more than 15 points but also summarise the range of emotions experienced by Bill Nighy and company in the 2019 British drama-comedy, Sometimes Always Never.
Captain Marvel doesn’t break any new ground in the superhero genre, however, it’s one hell of an enjoyable ride.

Oscar-winning director Neil Jordan’s latest, Greta, is a genre-piece that offers up some silly thrills that for the most part, work for entertainment’s sake.
Any film which opens with ‘Based on a true story’ incites a desire to know just how true to life the plot is. Director James Marsh attempts to keep King of Thieves as verbatim as possible and you can be assured that there is little glamorizing of this story. The crooks in this film, led by Michael Caine, are surprisingly vicious and callous with a good deal of incontinence thrown in.
Single location films aren’t easy to pull off and on the rare occasion when done right (like in 2010’s Buried) they can be quite engaging and fast-paced. The Danish-set The Guilty, without a doubt, falls into the engaging category, but not only does it keep our adrenaline pumping, it unfolds layer upon layer with a situation you don’t see coming and will leave you assessing what our protagonist (and the audience) has had to deal with after the final credits roll.
