Welcome back to the end of the week! Check out the layout for this week, which are, once more, just a few choice projects of interest out of the many coming attractions unveiled. This week, however, most trailers skew adult-oriented to fair warning to anyone who should avoid more horrific/sexual content.
We’re starting with a movie that can’t help but continually pull my brain towards “Gone Girl.”
“Deep Water” stars Ana De Armas and Ben Affleck as a couple in which De Armas leans towards infidelity in a dynamic they both… live with, until the, admittedly exciting and well shot, thrills start:
Directed by Adrian Lyne, written by Zach Helm and Sam Levinson, and produced by Garrett Basch, Guymon Casady, Ben Forkner, Anthony Katagas, Arnon Milchan, and Steven Zaillian, 20th Century Studios will release this streaming on Hulu starting March 18th, 2022.
“7 Days” is a romantic comedy revolving around two strangers sharing their culture and lives as they’re forced to shelter in place, and I love the cast and names I recognize involved in this production:
Directed by Roshan Sethi, written by Roshan Sethi and Karan Soni, and produced by Liz Cardenas and Mel Eslyn, Cinedigm will release this in select US theaters and on VOD on March 25th, 2022.
“Midnight” is a clever premise for a thriller as a deaf witness to a kidnapping leads a serial killer (played by Wi Ha-Joon from “Squid Games”) to target her:
Written and directed by Kwon Oh-Seung, Epic Pictures and Dread will release this direct-to-VOD starting on April 5th, 2022.
“Tony Hawk: Until the Wheels Fall Off” is a long awaited retrospective of the life of the star/legend of skateboarding:
Directed by Sam Jones, HBO will release this streaming on HBO Max April 5th, 2022.
“The Novice” then features Isabelle Fuhrman playing an ambitious competitor in the sport of Rowing, with dim cinematography and a tone reminiscent of “Whiplash.”
Written and directed by Lauren Hadaway, IFC will release this in UK cinemas and on VOD on April 1st, 2022.
“Waterman” is a documentary of a, perhaps overlooked, figure in the history of surfing, five-time Olympic medalist, and Native Hawaiian, Duke Paoa Kahanamoku.
Directed by Isaac Halasima, Purdie Distribution will release this in select theaters on April 1st, 2022.
“Pleasure” is a modern exploration of the porn industry and there’s a green-band trailer released to tease what is said to be a more thoughtful movie on ambitions, losses, and overall cost demanded by more than just this industry:
Written and directed by Ninja Thyberg, co-written by Peter Modestij, and produced by Erik Hemmendorff, Eliza Jones, and Markus Waltå, Neon will release thisin select US theaters on May 13th, 2022.
“The Hater” is a comedy about the ambitions of one person wanting to “change the world” as a politician, and how her roots both motivate and stand as a barrier for her:
Starring, written, and directed by Joey Alley and produced by Thomas Benski, Adrienne Childress, Daniel Crown, and Tory Lenosky, Vertical Ent. will release this direct-to-VOD on March 18th, 2022.
“The Girl and The Spider” is a broad Swiss film about life and relationships in a moment where a woman is set to move out of her apartment:
Written and directed by Ramon Zürcher and Silvan Zürcher, The Cinema Guild will release this in select theaters on April 8th, 2022.
And, finally, Netflix is releasing a new doc about the death of a man that resulted in the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars in crypto-currency, “Trust No One: The Hunt For The Crypto King”:
Directed by Luke Sewell and produced by Minnow Films, Netflix will release this on March 30th, 2022.
And if you’ve made it through this emotional ringer, I appreciate your time and hope you found something interesting or exciting for the near future. See you next week!
