First KNIGHT OF CUPS Trailer Reveals Terrence Malick’s Hollywood-Set Drama Starring Christian Bale

by     Posted One week ago

If you’re a fan of Terrence Malick, today is a very good day.  Earlier we learned that one of Malick’s films that he shot in 2012, Knight of Cups, is poised to debut at the Berlin Film Festival in February followed by a theatrical release later in 2015, and now the first Knight of Cups trailer has landed online.  The poetic, lyrical nature of Malick is on full display here, but this looks to be a much more hypnotic and chaotic film than his subdued, Oklahoma-set To the WonderChristian Bale leads a stellar cast that includes Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Antonio Banderas, and Brian Dennehy, and the Hollywood-set story marks a pretty major change of location for Malick, whose past two features have followed the lives of people living in the south/Midwest.  And it goes without saying that Emmanuel Lubezki’s cinematography is simply spectacular.  The slot for my most anticipated film of 2015 has now been filled.

Check out the first Knight of Cups trailer after the jump.  The film also stars Isabel Lucas, Imogen Poots, Wes Bentley, Freida Pinto, Teresa Palmer, Armin Mueller-Stahl, and the voice of Ben Kingsley and will be released in theaters sometime next year.

New THE LOFT Trailer Takes Karl Urban and Wentworth Miller to the Height of Paranoia

by     Posted 10 days ago

We saw the first trailer for The Loft more than two years ago, and now the film will finally see the light of day. Open Road Films has acquired The Loft from Universal and just released a new trailer and poster. The film stars Karl Urban, James Marsden, Wentworth Miller, Eric Stonestreet, and Matthias Shoenaerts as five married friends who share a secret penthouse where they can cheat on their wives and indulge in whatever fantasies they chose without leaving a paper trail.  Their party train quickly derails when they find the body of a dead woman in the loft and fall to paranoia as everyone begins to suspect one another.

The movie looks like it could be trashy fun, but none of the characters come across as particularly likeable, just a bunch of entitled dudes cheating on their wives.  It’s hard not to like Urban and Marsden though, so maybe the casting will make up for the off-putting nature of the characters. The film also stars Isabel Lucas, Rhona Mitra, and Rachael Taylor and opens in theaters January 23, 2015. Check out the first The Loft trailer after the jump.

Extended Featurette Provides First Look at Russell Crowe’s Directorial Debut, THE WATER DIVINER

by     Posted 238 days ago

An extended, behind-the-scenes featurette for The Water Diviner has provided a first look at Russell Crowe‘s upcoming directorial debut.  The story centers on an Australian man (Crowe) who travels to Turkey to attempt to locate the bodies of his three sons, who were killed there during WWI.  The featurette is narrated by Crowe, and his passion for the material really comes through.  Even though this is only his first feature, it looks like he’s come up with something that has a grand scope but retains its focus on the intimate character drama.  This is definitely one I’m going to be keeping on my radar, and although it doesn’t currently have a release date, I hope we’ll get to see it soon.

Hit the jump to check out The Water Diviner featurette. The film also stars Olga Kurylenko, Yilmaz Erdogan, Cem Yilmaz, Jai Courtney, Steve Bastoni, Isabel Lucas, Ryan Corr, Dan Wyllie, Damon Herriman, Jacqueline McKenzie, Michael Dorman, Megan Gale, and Dylan Georgiades.

New “Patriotic Trailer” for RED DAWN Starring Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson

by     Posted 2 years, 38 days ago

A new trailer for the Red Dawn remake, dubbed a “patriotic trailer,” has been released online.  Directed by Dan Bradley, the remake stars Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Josh Peck, and Arianne Palicki as a group of teenagers/young adults who must work together in order to repel invading North Korean forces.  It appears that the marketing campaign is now heavily geared toward the film’s patriotic appeal despite the fact that the filmmakers troublingly switched the nationality of the film’s villains from Chinese to North Koreans in post-production by changing the colors of the flags (‘Merica!).  Nevertheless, the film actually looks like it could be kind of fun if it doesn’t take itself too seriously.

While the segments are separate, there are plot and thematic links between them.” Actors Cate Blanchett, Mia Wasikowska, and David Wenham are all set to make their directing debuts on the film.  There’s currently no word on who Byrne, Weaving, and Otto will play or if they’ll be in the same segment.

First Trailer for RED DAWN Remake Starring Chris Hemsworth, Adrianne Palicki, and Josh Hutcherson

The first trailer for the long-delayed Red Dawnremake has been released.  Watching this trailer, I’m reminded of why we now use aliens for all of our invasion movies.  Being a superpower, it’s tougher to imagine the U.S. getting invaded by almost any other country.  The original worked in 1984 because it preyed on Cold War fears, and those fears no longer exist.  Even when China was the foe for the remake (a post-production change was made so that we wouldn’t lose money from their bustling economy; now the baddie is North Korea, which is laughable since they can’t even get a working rocket let alone an invasion force), there wasn’t too much fear, although that would at least provide a credible war.  I will say that the rah-rah freedom on display is kind of cute, and it’s interesting that the remake focuses on the characters going on a mission rather than simply trying to survive like in the original.

That Red Dawn remake that everyone nearly forgot about is finally hitting theaters this November, and a revamped poster for the film has been released.  The pic was actually filmed in 2009, but sat on the shelf for years due to MGM’s financial troubles.  Moreover, in a fairly disturbing move, the filmmakers decided to digitally change the film’s villains from the Chinese to the North Koreans once they realized the film’s box office chances in China would be severely crippled if the country was painted as villainous.  Nevertheless, the pic is finally set for release this year and due to the delay, it now boasts the stars of two major franchises: Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson.  This new poster plays up the “Go America!” aspect and makes damn sure audiences know that Thor and Peeta are here to save the U.S. of A.

Red-Band Trailer for THE LOFT Starring Karl Urban, James Marsden, Eric Stonestreet, and Rhona Mitra

A red-band trailer has gone online for the thriller The Loft.  The film centers on five friends who have a loft where they can go to cheat on their wives.  Their perfect locale hits a bit of a snag when they find a woman brutally murdered in the loft, and they don’t know who’s responsible.  I first thought that this would be a claustrophobic film where the five friends would be turning on each other since they each have a key to the loft.  Instead, they start suspecting their wives to be jealous murderous who discovered their husbands’ secret.  It’s an odd approach, although it makes sense since the guys seems sleazy enough to distrust the woman they’ve wronged rather than the dishonest guys in their company.  The only question is whether or not we’ll care what happens to the five adulterers, and if we’d rather see them get their comeuppance than solve the mystery.

Hit the jump to check out the red-band trailer.  The impressive cast features Karl Urban, James Marsden, Wentworth Miller, Eric Stonestreet, Rachael Taylor, Rhona Mitra, Valerie Cruz, and Isabel Lucas.  The film currently has no release date.

Sneak Peek at the Trailer for the RED DAWN Remake

by     Posted 2 years, 140 days ago

red-dawn-trailer-sneak

A sneak peek at the upcoming trailer for the remake of Red Dawn has gone online.  For those unfamiliar with the film, it’s about a group of teenagers who decide to take up arms and fight against a foreign invasion.  In the original 1984 version, it was the Russians, and the remake wanted to update the invaders to the Chinese.  However, after they finished shooting, the producers discovered that this might hurt distribution in China, so they decided to do some CGI change-ups to the flags and turn the invaders into North Koreans (in the hopes that you don’t notice that Chinese people and Korean people don’t look the same).

If you forgot that there was a remake of Red Dawn, you’re not alone.  The film was completed years ago, but had to sit on the shelf while MGM went through a financial meltdown (a fate shared by The Cabin in the Woods).  The movie was picked up for distribution by Film District in September 2011, and it will finally hit theaters on November 21st.  The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Adrianne Palicki, Isabel Lucas, Josh Peck, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Connor Cruise.  Hit the jump to check out a sneak peek at the trailer.
