First VICE Trailer: No Rules and No Consequences in Bruce Willis’ Robot-Filled Resort

by     Posted 17 days ago


The first trailer for Brian A. Miller’s Vice just arrived and there is a lot going on in it.  The film stars Bruce Willis as Julian Michaels, the designer behind a resort called Vice, a place with no laws, no rules and no consequences because the folks inside are not real people.  They’re artificial inhabitants.  Similar to The Purge, Vice brings up the idea of giving clients the opportunity to get the violence out of their systems, but right around the one-minute mark, the film’s trailer switches gears and puts the focus on one particular robot (Ambyr Childers) who becomes self-aware and escapes, threatening to destroy Julian’s business.

There’s definitely something entertaining about it, but the trailer also feels like a sloppy mashup of high-concept scenarios that have worked in the past.  Hit the jump to give the Vice trailer a watch for yourself.  Vice hits theaters and On Demand on January 16th and also stars Thomas Jane, Johnathon Schaech, Bryan Greenberg, Charlotte Kirk and Tyler J. Olson.

Promo Poster for VICE Starring Bruce Willis, Ambyr Childers and Thomas Jane

The latest installment of promo posters from Steve’s visit to Berlin’s European Film Market gives an early look at the sci-fi action-thriller, Vice.  While a lot of promo posters pop up for movies that will never see the light of day, Vice managed to sell to over 37 countries in one week, nearly selling out completely.  The recent news that Bruce Willis joined the picture likely helped sway buyers.  Also starring Ambyr Childers and Thomas Jane, Vice is set in a luxury resort of the future in which synthetic staff members tend to each and every whim of their rich and famous guests.  When a glitch allows one staffer to relive her previously wiped memories, she sets off on a path of revenge against those who have harmed her.  Hit the jump for more on Vice and to take a look at the promo poster.

First Trailer for Sundance Horror Entry WE ARE WHAT WE ARE

by     Posted 1 year, 114 days ago


We Are What We Are, a remake of the Mexican horror film of the same name, premiered at Sundance in January to very good reviews.  The first trailer is here, and it is effectively creepy.  I kept waiting for the jump scare, but instead the clip burns slowly and deeply.  The story is set amid a torrential rainstorm that shines a light on the seemingly wholesome Parkers: “As the unrelenting downpour continues to flood their small town, the local authorities begin to uncover clues that bring them closer to the secret that the Parkers have held closely for so many years.”

Bill Sage, Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner, Michael Parks, Kelly McGillis, Nick Damici, Wyatt Russell, and Jack Gore star.  Directed by Jim Mickle (Stake Land), We Are What We Are opens in limited release on September 27.  Watch the trailer after the jump.

Ambyr Childers Joins Paul Thomas Anderson’s THE MASTER and Ruben Fleischer’s GANGSTER SQUAD

by     Posted 3 years, 77 days ago


Ambyr Childers biggest role to date is her two-year stint on All My Children, but now she’s landed supporting roles in two major upcoming films.  Deadline reports that Childers has signed on to co-star in Paul Thomas Anderson’s religious drama The Master (tentative title), and Ruben Fleischer’s 1940s crime drama Gangster Squad.  In The Master, Childers will play the daughter of a Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman), a man who decides to create his own religion after witnessing the horrors of World War II.  The film also stars Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Jesse Plemons, David Warshofsky, Laura Dern, Lena Endre, Rami Malek, Madisen Beaty, Josh Close, and Fiona Dourif.

As for Gangster Squad, Childers’ will play a “key role” but that’s all we know about the part.  The movie centers on an LAPD task force and their attempt to bring down infamous gangster Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn).  Ryan Gosling, Sean Penn, Anthony Mackie, Michael Peña, Giovanni Ribisi, Emma Stone, and Nick Nolte will co-star.  Gangster Squad is due out October 19, 2012, and (fingers crossed) we can expect The Master to make the late 2012 festival rounds.
