Trailer park: Now You See Me 2, The Hateful Eight, Point Break

Next up for the ‘trailer park’ we have an odd mix: a comedy focused on the zeitgeist-y hot topic of magic, the cinematic event that’s a Tarantino release and the remake of a ’90s cult classic (to some at least).

Now You See Me 2
(out June 2016)
A surprise hit a few years ago, this ensemble cast gelled well and were a treat to watch. From the trailer you’ll see it’s more of the same, but with a few additions including Lizzy Caplan and – in an inspired touch – Daniel Radcliffe.

The Hateful Eight
(out Dec 2015/Jan 2016)
Tarantino threw his toys out the pram a few times during the evolution of this film due to script leaks but thankfully he manned up and made it. It will be interesting to see how this fits into his legendary filmography, as it has lashings of Reservoir Dogs and touches of Django about it.

Point Break
(out Dec 2015/Jan 2016)
Kathryn Bigelow made her name directing this 1991 action flick with Keanu Reeves as a young, dumb cop chasing Patrick Swayze’s thrill-seeking criminal. Originally Gerard Butler was set to play Brodie but pulled out, so they’ve got a lookalike. And in Keanu’s role they’ve got a hybrid of Paul Walker and Heath Ledger, so we’ll see how it pans out.
