MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN and THE LIFE BEFORE HER EYES – New Movie Posters
Posted by Frosty
Okay, I need to explain to every publicist, actor and filmmaker I’ve been interviewing these past few days about why the interviews haven’t been running yet. There is actually a very simple answer that’s almost too embarrassing to say: I brought the wrong cable to Park City.
It ends up my new laptop can only use a firewire cable with the small ends and the one I brought has the large ones. Needless to say, I feel terrible, stupid, and completely unprofessional. And I’m sure a lot of you are just thinking…why don’t you buy a new one. Well, I’ve been trying, but none of the stores on Main Street have one for sale and there is no Best Buy or Target here in town. So, tomorrow, when I’ll actually have some free time, I aim to search far and wide to locate the cable that will bring tons of amazing, exclusive video interviews to all of you out there. I’ve interviewed more celebs and filmmakers one on one these past few days than I ever have in my life. You won’t believe what’s coming, and I’ve landed some great exclusive news.
So…again, to all the filmmakers and people I’ve spoken with…I’m truly sorry for any delay in posting and I promise you this will never happen again.
Now…about those new movie posters.
Lionsgate has just released the new poster for “Midnight Meat Train” and it’s below. The film stars Bradley Cooper, Vinnie Jones, Brooke Shields, and Leslie Bibb and it’s directed by acclaimed Japanese director Ryuhei Kitamura, and it’ll be his American debut. The film is based on Clive Barker’s short story from his classic Books of Blood collection. The movie hits May 16th and I think the poster looks kind of cool.
**update** I just found out that the poster below is temporary. The official one should be out soon.
The other poster is for “Life Before Her Eyes,” and it stars Uma Thurman and Evan Rachel Wood and it’s directed by Vadim Perelman (“House of Sand and Fog”). The film is a dramatic thriller about Diana (Uma Thurman), a suburban wife and mother who begins to question her seemingly perfect life--and perhaps her sanity--on the 15th anniversary of a tragic high school shooting that took the life of her best friend. In flashbacks, Diana is a vibrant high schooler (played by Evan Rachel Wood) who, with her shy best friend Maureen, plot typical teenage strategies--cutting class, fantasizing about boys--and vow to leave their sleepy suburb at the first opportunity. The older Diana, however, is haunted by the increasingly strained relationship she had with Maureen as day of the school shooting approached. These memories disrupt the idyllic life she's now leading with her professor husband Paul and their young daughter Emma. As older Diana's life begins to unravel and younger Diana gets closer and closer to the fatal day, a deeper mystery slowly unravels. The movie gets released on April 18th.
Anyway, I’m off to more movies. Expect some review later tonight and through the week. The interviews are finally slowing down so I can get back to why I’m here…watching a crapload of new films and reviwing them. Sorry for not posting as often as I usually do…but Sundance is only a temporary thing. I'm back in L.A. soon enough....
