Lupita Nyong’o has already made her mark in Hollywood at just 36-years-old. She won an Academy Award in 2014 for her work in 12 Years a Slave. She also starred in Black Panther (one of 2018’s most successful films) and Jordan Peele’s latest masterpiece, Us.
And while she’s known mostly for her intense/serious roles, her upcoming film ‘Little Monsters‘ promises to add a little humor to her resume.
The trailer features Nyong’o as the eternally optimistic elementary school teacher Miss Caroline, who is overseeing a field trip to a petting zoo. The day starts out normally and seems to be going well. Then, the zombies arrive. Just next door to the petting zoo is an army base where a series of experiments have gone awry, creating a zombie virus that spreads quick.
Things get incredibly silly and just a little scary from there. This movie will hit theaters in the UK on November 5. It’ll hit theaters in the states on November 15.
So the trailer for the new Star Wars movie finally hit the interweb and I have to say people are surprised. Surprised and impressed. From the start to the finish the trailer draws you in and leaves you wanting more.
The first character we see is an intense faced John Boyega. Right then you tell yourself that Boyega is perfectly cast. Not too big of a star and he is known already from his Sci-fi role in 2011 ‘Attack the Block’ and he is immediately believable. We see him rockin the familiar Stormtrooper outfit and from that point on, all you can think of in your mind is, “It’s on”.
Then you see Daisy Ridley swoop in, and quickly it cuts over to Oscar Isaac piloting an X-wing leading the other X-wings into formation, then the scene quickly flashes to what appears to be at least one of the films villains yielding a light saber.
OMG! At this point you forget about Disney, you forget about all of your J.J. Abrams worries and your Star Wars senses are on overload. You can’t handle anymore. That’s when you see the Millennium Falcon swoop in and you hear the John Williams’’ classic Star Wars theme…….then your head explodes, or you applaud. Or your head explodes while you are applauding.
For now the score is, Disney and JJ one, cynical doubting fans 0. But this is just the first battle. The scary part is there is so much more to come. Enjoy the tease.
