Passionate about movies, sports and writing, Ryan hails from Bend but lives in Springfield now. He earned his college degree in journalism from the University of Oregon and hopes to one day write a novel. He also enjoys sunsets and long walks on the beach.
The trailer for Black Mass debuted a few days ago, but I had to put it up. Johnny Depp stars as Whitey Bulger, one of the most notorious gangsters in American history who eventually became an FBI informant. This might be my favorite trailer of the year so far. Rather than show scene after scene, it revolves mostly around one scene in the movie where Bulger is sitting at a dinner table asking for the secret recipe to a steak. It's captivating, chilling and might just be Depp's return to form. The cast is outstanding and this looks like it might be the best American gangster film since American Gangster eight years ago. Black Mass opens September 18.
Tomorrowland Trailer #3
Disney has released a new Tomorrowland trailer. The film follows Casey (Britt Robertson), a smart young teen with scientific curiosity who teams up with former boy-genius inventor (George Clooney) to embark on a journey to Tomorrowland. This is more of an extended scene, but it's a great set piece that probably takes place in the first act and sets up a visually unique film that's fun and smart. Tomorrowland opens May 22.
Jurassic World Trailer #2
The second trailer for Jurassic World has landed online. Featuring a fully functional park, visitors have seen just about everything so scientists decide to genetically enhance a new dinosaur. Probably not a good idea. This trailer is action packed and you get a little more of Chris Pratt training raptors. I'm not a huge fan of the digital look of the film, but it's our first Jurassic Park movie in 14 years so who cares. Jurassic World opens June 12.
