Posters for a trio of non-superhero, non-franchise movies have landed online, and we thought it prudent to share. Briefly:
- Whiplash – Our own Matt Goldberg is quoted on the Whiplash poster for this dark drama, which stars Miles Teller as an aspiring jazz drummer who studies under a ruthless instructor (J.K. Simmons). I’m actually quoted on the trailer myself, as the film was one of the breakout hits of this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The pic opens in theaters on October 10th. Read Matt’s review here.
- Before I Go to Sleep – A poster and release date have been unveiled for this thriller starring Nicole Kidman as a woman with no memory. Secrets are subsequently revealed about the true nature of her doctor (Mark Strong) and husband (Colin Firth). The film opens in theaters on October 31st.
- Laggies – Only half-heads are glimpsed in the debut poster for Lynn Shelton’s dramedy about a woman (Keira Knightley) who decides to run literally away from adulthood by hanging out with a teenager (Chloe Grace Moretz) and her father (Sam Rockwell). The film opens in theaters on October 24th. Read Matt’s review here.
