When he was employed to make a sequel to 1998 Michael Bay catastrophe bombast Armageddon, we’re unsure what anybody hoped for from filmmaker James Grey. There are zero large asteroids, no heroic Ben Affleck moments and never a touch of Aerosmith that we are able to hear. Sorry… We’re being advised that Armageddon Time has, the truth is, nothing to do with Michael Bay’s film and is as a substitute a semi-autobiographical coming-of-age story starring the likes of Anne Hathaway, Anthony Hopkins and Jeremy Robust. See the primary trailer beneath…
Armageddon Time is about in New York within the Eighties Reagan period because it explores the power of household, the complexity of friendship and the generational pursuit of the American Dream.
Newcomer Michael Banks performs Paul Graff, a personality loosely based mostly on author/director Grey himself, rising up in a time of Reagan era-politics and with the ever-present spectre of the Trump household years earlier than that meant extra than simply dodgy enterprise.
Trying set to be an awards contender, particularly after a rapturous response at Cannes this yr, the movie additionally options Jessica Chastain and Jaylin Webb. Armageddon Time can be in UK cinemas from 18 November.
