With writer/director Joseph Kosinski’s Oblivion opening April 19th, we’ve been provided with four clips from the sci-fi film.  The story takes place on a dystopian Earth and stars Tom Cruise as a drone repairman who holds the future of mankind in his hands after discovering a crashed spaceship. Oblivion also stars Olga Kurylenko, Morgan Freeman, Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Melissa Leo. 

Over the past few months we’ve seen tons of images, posters, images, and featurettes.  Based on what I’ve seen thus far, I’m counting down the days, especially since Kosinski told us that Oblivion will be presented “in IMAX will be full frame 1.9 through the whole thing.”  Needless to say, if you’re going to see the film, see it in IMAX!  Hit the jump to watch the clips and look for my video interviews with the cast week of release.

New Trailer for TO THE WONDER Starring Ben Affleck and Olga Kurylenko

The U.S. theatrical trailer for Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder is now available.  The mesmerizing trailer isn’t shy about touting the main theme of the film: love, in all of its dynamic incarnations.  In between shots of the main characters in the throes of passion or struggling with a relationship that’s lost its fire, a sermon on love narrates the changing nature and transformative power of the complicated emotion.  What’s starts out as a big-budget version of a jewelry advertisement eventually sinks its hooks into you if you let it.

Starring Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Javier Bardem and Rachel McAdams, To the Wonder opens on April 12th.  You can read Matt’s review of the film here.  Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.

First Clip from Terrence Malick’s TO THE WONDER Starring Olga Kurylenko and Ben Affleck

The first clip from Terrence Malick‘s To the Wonder has been released.  In the vague semblance of a plot, Olga Kurylenko plays a woman who travels to Oklahoma to be with the man (Ben Affleck) she loves only to discover that their relationship isn’t as strong as they previously thought.  There’s also a story involving a priest (Javier Bardem) who grapples with his loneliness and has almost no narrative relation to the other plotline.  This clip does play to the amount of silence in the film, but it’s a hollow silence that carries almost no dramatic weight.

Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for director Joseph Kosinski’s upcoming sci-fi film Oblivion. The story takes place on a dystopian Earth and stars Tom Cruise as a drone repairman who holds the future of mankind in his hands after discovering a crashed spaceship.  While the film’s first trailer was a tad underwhelming, this is undoubtedly the best trailer yet.  It does an excellent job of setting up the film’s plot while also teasing some absolutely gorgeous visuals and exciting tech.  We also get a good look at the character played by Melissa Leo, who appears to have some mysterious motives.

First Trailer for Action Thriller ERASED Starring Aaron Eckhart and Olga Kurylenko

The first trailer for director Philipp Stolzl’s long-delayed action thriller Erased (formerly titled The Expatriate) has finally been released online.  The film stars Aaron Eckhart as a former CIA agent who moves to Belgium with his estranged 15-year-old daughter (Liana Liberato) and takes a job as a security consultant at a multinational corporation.  He soon discovers that his co-workers are gone, the corporation no longer exists and his assistant is actually a trained operative trying to kill him.  The trailer gives off a very strong Taken vibe, and certain aspects of the pic actually look pretty interesting.  That said, when a film has been sitting on the shelf for over two years, it’s usually not a good sign.  One thing’s for sure, though: messing with people’s daughters is a good way to provoke a disproportionate (and unfortunate) response from the father.

2 New Featurettes for TO THE WONDER Offer a Look Inside the Filmmaking Process of Director Terrence Malick

to-the-wonder-images-slice

A couple of new featurettes for writer/director Terrence Malick’s upcoming romantic drama To the Wonder have made their way online.  The story involves a woman (Olga Kurylenko) traveling to Oklahoma to be with the man she loves (Ben Affleck), only to discover their relationship being tested by his childhood friend (Rachel McAdams) and a wayward priest (Javier Bardem).  These featurettes are beyond fascinating for any cinephile, as they give us a peek inside the filmmaking process of elusive director Terrence Malick.  The cast and crew talk about Malick’s atypical, improvisational filmmaking process, as many of them are never given a script and have to react to things Malick says while they’re filming a take.

A new trailer and poster have been released for Joseph Kosinski‘s sci-fi action film, Oblivion.  The story takes place on a dystopian Earth, and stars Tom Cruise as a drone repairman who holds the future of mankind in his hands after discovering a crashed spaceship.  The first trailer didn’t do much for me, but this new trailer does a much better job of laying out the plot, the conflict, and the larger world.  Now I’m intrigued, and I hope that Kosinski can deliver on the premise.

New images from two upcoming April films that both star Olga Kurylenko have been released online.  First up, a new image from director Joseph Kosinski’s sci-fi pic Oblivion has been released.  The story takes place on a dystopian Earth and stars Tom Cruise as a drone repairman who finds himself holding the future of mankind in his hands after discovering a crashed spaceship.  This new image doesn’t feature Kurylenko, but it does give is a nice look at Cruise making his “intense running” face while flanked by what looks like a bubble helicopter.  Oblivion opens on April 19th.

New images from writer/director Terrence Malick’s upcoming romantic drama To the Wonder have also been released.  The film stars Kurylenko as a woman who travels to Oklahoma to be with the man she loves, only to discover that their relationship isn’t as strong as they previously thought.  Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams also star and are featured in these images, but it’s my understanding that Kurylenko is the main focus of Malick’s dialogue-lite pic.  To the Wonder opens on April 12th.  Hit the jump to take a look at the images. [Update: More new images from To the Wonder have been released including a look at Javier Bardem.]

The first trailer has been released for Terrence Malick‘s To The Wonder.  In the vague semblance of a plot, Olga Kurylenko plays a woman who travels to Oklahoma to be with the man she loves only to discover that their relationship isn’t as strong as they previously thought.  There’s also a story involving a priest who grapples with his loneliness and has almost no narrative relation to the other plotline.  I caught the picture at TIFF, and although To The Wonder is one of Malick’s shortest films, it feels like his longest.  His attempt to make an intimate film about intimacy caved in on itself, and most of the movie is just people whispering narration and twirling.  The majesty presented in this trailer is almost completely misleading.

First Trailer for Joseph Kosinski’s OBLIVION Starring Tom Cruise

by     Posted 2 years, 9 days ago

oblivion-poster-slice

The first trailer for director Joseph Kosinski’s (TRON: Legacy) sci-fi film Oblivion has been released.  At first blush, it’s not exactly what I was expecting and I think that bodes well for the picture. Rather than a straight shoot-em-up actioner or a generic survival story, Oblivion looks to have elements of mystery and betrayal all tied into Tom Cruise’s character, Jack Harper.  Olga Kurylenko looks beautiful even dressed-down and Morgan Freeman channels his own version of Laurence Fishburne’s Morpheus. The all-white aesthetic looks sharp and clean against a backdrop of chaos and destruction and the overall design definitely has some nods to TRON. There are also elements of The Fifth Element, Minority Report and The Matrix presented in this introductory trailer, but Oblivion looks to be something all its own. (But what is up with that creature that looks like Darth Vader and sounds like a Tusken raider?)

The film also stars Andrea Riseborough, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Melissa LeoOblivion opens on April 19, 2013.  Hit the jump to watch.
