Checkout the new movie trailers for Hands of Stone, La La Land + Jack Reacher: Never Go Back…
Here’s the first trailer for Jonathan Jakubowicz’ Hands Of Stone, which tells the true story of boxing legend Roberto Duran.
Hands Of Stone follows the life of Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez), the Panamanian fighter who made his professional debut in 1968 as a 16 year?old and retired in 2002 at the age of 50. In June 1980, he defeated Sugar Ray Leonard (Usher Raymond) to capture the WBC welterweight title, but shocked the boxing world by returning to his corner in their November rematch, famously saying the words “no mas” (no more).
La La Land, the next film by Damien Chazelle, looks to have plenty of music, but appears to lighten up on the abuse. While the tone doesn’t feel quite so bright and cheery as your average Hollywood musical, there’s an undeniable magic in the first trailer. The overall tone of the trailer is peaceful and somber. The song heard in the background called “City of Stars” is sung by Ryan Gosling, and does a pretty good job of setting up the movie. In the film, Emma Stone is an aspiring actress and Gosling is a dedicated jazz musician. The film revolves around them falling in love, but it’s also about the difficulties that they have staying there. The song’s lyrics don’t know whether love will last, and we won’t know either until the movie comes out.
Tom Cruise has reached that stage in his career where he’s sick and tired of bad guys, and he’s just ready to beat some ass. The original Jack Reacher movie was a quiet success, earning enough money (and critical praise) to justify a sequel.
There are so many Jack Reacher stories, thanks to the prolific writings of Lee Child, that Tom Cruise could crank out a dozen more of these movies without missing a beat. However, Cruise is 53, so his ass-beating days are likely limited. We know that he’s on tap for a sixth Mission: Impossible movie. There are rumors of him teaming up with Christopher McQuarrie for Edge of Tomorrow 2. And that’s in addition to the projects Cruise has added to his resume already. Jack Reacher 3 would be a decade away, at least. We hope its much sooner.
