Trailer for THE FACE OF LOVE Starring Annette Bening, Ed Harris, and Robin Williams

IFC Films has released the trailer for director Arie Posin’s (The Chumscrubber) upcoming drama The Face of Love.  The film stars Annette Bening as a grieving widow who happens upon a man (Ed Harris) who looks almost exactly like her deceased husband.  The two strike up a relationship and a flood of old feelings come rushing back to her again.  The film looks to be a pretty interesting romantic drama that sidesteps the clichéd psychological thriller aspect that the premise might suggest.  Bening and Harris appear to have solid chemistry, and I’m interested to see how the story plays out.

Japanese Trailer for SNOWPIERCER Features Plenty of New Footage

by     Posted 105 days ago

The legend of Bong Joon-ho‘s Snowpiercer is beginning to eclipse the actual movie.  The story is set in a new ice age caused by a failed experiment to stop global warming that killed virtually all life on the planet.  The sole survivors live on a train called Snowpiercer—powered by a perpetual machine—who struggle with the class system implemented on the train.  Snowpiercer was a hit in Bong’s native South Korea, and it’s slowly rolling out to other territories.  However, behind-the-scenes wrangling continues between Bong and U.S. distributor The Weinstein Company.  Harvey Weinstein wants a shorter, more action-oriented cut, while Bong obviously wants to keep his cut intact.  The result is that we currently don’t know what we’ll get or when we’ll get it.  As we wait, new trailers continue to roll out, and a new one from Japan features plenty of fresh footage, and a heavy emphasis on the movie’s protagonist, Curtis (Chris Evans).

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, Alison Pill, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, and Ko AsungSnowpiercer opens in Japan on February 7th.  Let us know what we’re missing, Japan.

Four months ago, we reported that Ethan Hawke would reunite for his Hamlet director Michael Almereyda for another modern spin on the Bard’s work.  This time, they’ve teamed up for one of Shakespeare’s lesser-known works, Cymbeline.  In the play, the story is about [per Yahoo! Movies] “the impossible love between Imogen (Dakota Johnson) and Posthumus (Penn Badgley), and on the conniving influence of the Queen (Milla Jovovich) on her husband, King Cymbeline (Ed Harris).”  The new adaptation was reportedly “in the vein of Sons of Anarchy and Baz Luhrmann‘s Romeo + Juliet, and is an epic battle between dirty cops and a drug-dealing biker gang set in a corrupt 21st century America.”  The trailer has now come online, and it looks like Amereyda has delivered on that promise in an effective and exciting manner.

A French trailer has been released for Bong Joon-ho‘s Snowpiercer, and it provides our best look at the movie yet.  The story is set in a new ice age caused by a failed experiment to stop global warming that killed virtually all life on the planet.  The sole survivors live on a train called Snowpiercer—powered by a perpetual machine—who struggle with the class system implemented on the train.  This trailer provides not only a clearer picture of the plot, but also tons of visual effects we haven’t seen before.  It also has Alison Pill firing an automatic weapon, so that’s fun too.  Overall, Snowpiercer looks like an exhilarating ride, but we’ll have to see if we get the original South Korean cut or a shorter, dumbed-down version The Weinstein Company wants for U.S. distribution.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, and Ko AsungSnowpiercer currently does not have a U.S. release date.  The film premiered in Bong’s native South Korea last month, and was a big hit at the box office.

New SNOWPIERCER Trailer Highlights Action of the Train and Axe Variety

Give me a futuristic science fiction premise and a stylish director, and I’m a happy moviegoer.  By the looks of it, Bong Joon-ho (The Host) delivers with Snowpiercer—and adds a nice cast to boot: Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Alison Pill, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, Ko Asung.

The story is set in a new ice age caused by a failed experiment to stop global warming that killed virtually all life on the planet.  The sole survivors live on a train called Snowpercer—powered by a perpetual machine—who struggle with the class system implemented on the train.  You’ll have to take my word on the story, because the brief 47-second clip—labeled “Final Trailer” in the week leading up to the August 1 release in South Korea—focuses more on speedy train rides through a snowy mountain landscape and Evans axing a few passengers than class politics.  Still looks great.  No word on the U.S. release date yet, so stay tuned.  Watch the trailer after the jump.

First Trailer and New Images from SWEETWATER Starring January Jones, Jason Isaacs, and Ed Harris

by     Posted 289 days ago

sweetwater-january-jones-slice-1

Today is the one-two punch of trailers for the worst films I saw at Sundance this year.  Earlier, we got the trailer for The Lifeguard, and now we have Sweetwater (which will be called “Sweet Vengeance” in some territories).  The western stars January Jones as a frontier woman who hunts down a religious fanatic Prophet Josiah (Jason Isaacs) when he murders her husband over a land dispute.  Ed Harris co-stars as a crafty lawman who’s hunting down Josiah for different reasons.  The trailer desperately tries to give off a Django Unchained vibe by highlighting the violence, but there are plenty of violent westerns.  Sweetwater is one of the really shitty ones.

Hit the jump to check out some new images along with the trailer to see what I mean.  Sweetwater currently has no domestic release date, although I wouldn’t be surprised if it were dumped directly to video.

A couple days ago, we got some cool images from Bong Joon-ho‘s Snowpiercer, which showcased the film’s setting, a post-apocalyptic train divided into classes.  A new trailer has been released highlighting the revolution the lower classes are bringing against the passengers at the front, and there are also new images and six new featurettes that take us even deeper into the movie.  They provide interviews with the actors, Bong, and the South Korean crew members.  Unfortunately, only the interviews with the English-speaking actors are in English—there are no English subtitles for the Korean speakers.  However, these featurettes are still worth watching, and one of them gives us our first look at Alison Pill, who we hadn’t seen in either posters or passports.  We learn that she plays a teacher in one of the upper classes of the train.

Nine international character posters have been released for Snowpiercer, the English-language debut of Korean director Bong Joon-ho (The Host).  The story is set in a new ice age caused by a failed experiment to stop global warming that killed virtually all life on the planet.  The sole survivors live on a train called Snowpiercer—powered by a perpetual machine—who struggle with the class system implemented on the train.  The posters all provide the first hint of a release date by listing “Summer 2013″.  However, since these are international posters, we don’t know if that’s summer for the U.S., other countries, or both.

A new red-band trailer and some images for director Michael Bay’s upcoming dark comedy Pain & Gain have been released online.  Based on a true story, the film stars Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson as two bodybuilders who get caught up in an extortion ring and kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong.  The main focus of this trailer is on the film’s humor, some of which is great (Rebel Wilson and Wahlberg’s closing rant are highlights), while other jokes seem a bit forced and are reminiscent of the more juvenile stuff in Bay’s Transformers franchise.  Nevertheless, I’m very excited about the prospect of Bay tackling this “small-scale” true crime story, and Wahlberg and Johnson look to make a great comedic pairing.

New TV Spot for Michael Bay’s PAIN & GAIN Starring Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson

pain-and-gain-slice

Paramount has released a new TV spot for director Michael Bay’s incredibly promising black comedy Pain & Gain.  Based on a true story, the film stars Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson as two bodybuilders who get caught up in an extortion ring and kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong.  The film’s first trailer is fantastic, and this TV spot does a great job of showcasing that pic’s charm and comedy.  Pain & Gain looks like it could actually be Bay’s most entertaining film yet, but I have a feeling they’re keeping some of the story’s more sordid details under wraps.  The real life ordeal is fairly horrific, though I expect Wahlberg and Johnson will bring enough levity/ridiculousness to the film to make it palatable.

Hit the jump to watch the latest TV spot.  Anthony MackieRob CorddryEd HarrisTony Shalhoub, and Rebel Wilson co-star.  Pain & Gain opens April 26, 2013.
