In what may be the most dysfunctional family holiday film since the Griswolds took on National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, a new red-band trailer for The Oranges has landed. Directed by Julian Farnio (Entourage), The Oranges centers on two suburban families who are the best of friends and the most boring and predictable of people. That all changes when the daughter of the Ostroffs starts an affair with the father of the Wallings.
Starring Hugh Laurie, Catherine Keener, Oliver Platt, Allison Janney, Adam Brody, Alia Shawkat and Leighton Meester, The Oranges opens October 5th. Hit the jump to check out the red-band trailer.
The trailer and poster for Kenneth Lonergan’s Margaret have gone online. The long-awaited and long-delayed follow-up to Lonergan’s You Can Count on Me, Margaret centers on a high school student (Anna Paquin) who discovers that watching Alison Janney get hit by a bus will really throw you for a loop. There’s definitely going to be a tough balance here between hitting honest emotions of a teenager who witnesses and feels responsible for a tragedy and going too melodramatic. Hopefully Lonergan and his excellent cast, which also includes Mark Ruffalo and Matt Damon, can keep the story grounded.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster. The film also stars J. Smith-Cameron, Jean Reno, Jeannie Berlin, and Matthew Broderick. Margaret opens September 30th.
