Millennium Films has released a new Before I Go to Sleep trailer.  Nicole Kidman stars as a woman who loses her memory every time she wakes up.  As she learns more clues about her condition, she begins to uncover a dark mystery about why she can’t retain her memories.  Given the terrific premise and strong cast, which also includes Colin Firth and Mark Strong, I have high hopes for this one.

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.

Studio Canal UK has released the first Before I Go to Sleep trailer.  Nicole Kidman stars as a woman who loses her memory every time she wakes up.  As she learns more clues about her condition, she begins to uncover a dark mystery about why she can’t retain her memories.  Although it looks like the movie is aiming for a Memento vibe, it strikes me as a really disturbing sequel to 50 First Dates.

Hit the jump to check out the Before I Go to Sleep trailer.  The film opens on September 12th, and co-stars Colin Firth and Mark Strong.

Rowan Joffe to Adapt BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP

by     Posted 4 years, 40 days ago

Writer-director Rowan Joffe (Brighton Rock) is set to adapt Steve Watson’s debut novel Before I Go to SleepVariety reports that the story is about “a young woman who, after a night of partying, wakes up to discover that she has aged beyond recognition.”  I like how the book is described as a “psychological thriller” when that logline could just as easily be applied to an Anna Faris comedy.

Joffe penned the script for The American, and his directorial debut, Brighton Rock, is currently playing at the Toronto International Film Festival.  Before I Go to Sleep will be produced under Ridley and Tony Scott’s production company, Scott Free.  StudioCanal will executive produce.
