Sony Pictures Classics has released the first Still Alice clip from co-directors and co-writers Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland’s adaptation of the Lisa Genova novel of the same name, and it’s heartbreaking.  Julianne Moore stars in the film as a linguistics professor who begins showing the signs of Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease and must come to grips with the illness alongside her family.  By most accounts, Moore is the current frontrunner to win the Best Actress Oscar for her performance in the film.  It debuted to strong reviews at TIFF, and even co-star Kristen Stewart is generating some awards buzz for her supporting performance.  This clip is devastating to watch, as Moore describes to her daughter what it’s actually like to start losing her memory and, by extension, herself.

Watch the first Still Alice clip after the jump.  The film also stars Alec Baldwin and opens in an Oscar-qualifying limited run in December before expanding on January 16th.

Disney has released the first Avengers: Age of Ultron clip from writer/director Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated Marvel Studios sequel.  The clip debuted earlier tonight during ABC’s new episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., where the first trailer was set to premiere before it leaked last week.  Age of Ultron sees the titular Avengers battling a force of their own invention, as Tony Stark’s new robot Ultron gets a mind of his own and decides that humanity is in need of wiping out.  This clip is essentially what was shown at Comic-Con this summer, and it shows that despite the serious tone of the trailer, there’s still plenty of fun to be had.  In the clip, the Avengers are letting off steam in the form of an Avengers party in Stark’s penthouse, as they each take turns trying to lift Thor’s hammer.  Shenanigans ensue.

Watch the first Avengers: Age of Ultron clip after the jump.  The film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, James Spader, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Andy Serkis, and Samuel L.

We have an exclusive Before I Go to Sleep clip to share.  Nicole Kidman stars as an amnesiac who wakes up every day with no memory.  The clip sets an ominous tone as Kidman watches a video of herself explaining her predicament that ends abruptly with a “He’s coming.”  Based on the S.J. Watson novel, the premise leads to darker territory as “terrifying new truths begin to emerge that make her question everything she thinks she knows about her life—as well as everyone in it, including her doctor (Mark Strong) and even her husband (Colin Firth).”

The thriller, directed by Rowan Joffe (Brighton Rock), opens October 31.  Watch the Before I Go to Sleep clip after the jump.

We have an exclusive Low Down clip to premiere.  Based on the memoir by Amy-Jo Albany, Low Down examines the complex relationship between jazz pianist Joe Albany (John Hawkes) and his daughter Amy-Jo (Elle Fanning): “Set against a sensuously textured 1970s Hollywood, the film beautifully evokes a colorful, seedy world of struggling musicians, artists, and vagabonds.”  Peter Dinklage plays one of those vagabonds, offering Amy-Jo a tour of his hole-in-the-wall in the clip.

Lena Headey, Flea, Caleb Landry Jones, and Glenn Close also star.  Low Down opens in New York October 24 and reaches Los Angeles October 31.  Watch the clip after the jump.

DreamWorks Animation has released a new The Penguins of Madagascar clip that takes us through the beginning of the movie.  Directed by Eric Darnell (Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted) and Simon J. Smith (Bee Movie), the film finds the scene-stealing penguins leading a film of their own as they’re joined by a wolf named Classified (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch), who leads a covert team of protective animals.  This is one of the clips they showed at Comic-Con, and like everything else I’ve seen from this movie, it looks surprisingly charming and funny.

Open Road Films has released a new Nightcrawler clip from director Dan Gilroy’s upcoming psychological thriller, which was one of the best films I saw at the Toronto International Film Festival this year.  Jake Gyllenhaal plays Lou Bloom, a sociopath who plunges into the depths of filming gruesome footage for local news, and begins pushing the limits between covering the news and making it.  The film has shades of Network and Taxi Driver, and you’ll get a little taste of the former in this new clip that finds Bloom pitching himself to a late night network news producer played by Rene Russo.  Their relationship in the film develops in delicious fashion, and I can’t wait to see the movie again when it opens on Halloween.

While DreamWorks Animation has a kind of “throw everything against the wall and see what sticks” attitude when it comes to their films, every once in a while they put together something special.  I wasn’t necessarily looking forward to the spinoff feature The Penguins of Madagascar, but ever since that first trailer I’ve found myself wanting to see more comedic adventures from the titular penguins.  A new Penguins of Madagascar clip has now landed online, and it once again highlights the humorous interplay amongst the penguins and their love of Cheezy Dibbles as they find themselves squaring off against a vending machine.  It’s funny stuff, and I’m genuinely eager to catch the film in theaters next month.

First Clip from Susanne Bier’s Long-Delayed SERENA Starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper

serena-clip

Magnolia has released the first Serena clip online, and it gives a bit of a hint as to why the movie has sat on a shelf for so long despite starring two of Hollywood’s hottest actors, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper.  They play Serena and George Pemberton, newlyweds trying to build a timber empire.  The business takes off thanks to Serena’s ability and ambition, but when she uncovers the truth of George’s past, it threatens the stability of their marriage and business.  While I enjoy hearing Bradley Cooper talk about mahogany as the next guy, this clip is passionate scene without much passion, except when they kiss and the handheld camera swooshes around like it’s trying to get a better shot.

Hit the jump to check out the Serena clip.  The movie also stars Sam Reid, Rhys Ifans, Toby Jones, and Sean Harris, and will premiere at the London Film Festival before opening in the U.K. on October 24th.  Serena hits VOD in the U.S. on February 26, 2015 and will open in theaters on March 27th

Jennifer Garner Polices Her Daughter’s Facebook in New MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN Clip

Paramount Pictures has released a new Men, Women & Children clip from director Jason Reitman’s (Up in the Air) latest feature.  The drama follows the loosely connected stories of a group of teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate life in the digital age, and having seen the film at TIFF, I can attest that it’s a moving and dark snapshot of humanity and the ways in which we interact with one another.  While the film is really about larger issues than technology, it does use our tech-obsessed culture as a conduit through which to dig into bigger themes, and this new clip shows Jennifer Garner’s over-protective mother casually perusing through her daughter’s (Short Term 12’s Kaitlyn Dever) Facebook page.  Garner’s character is one of the more disturbing in the film, offering a glimpse at the kinds of parents that think it’s their duty to monitor each and every interaction their child has with another human being.

Entertainment One has released the first Son of a Gun clip.  The Australian thriller follows a young man (Brenton Thwaites) who becomes the apprentice of a calculating crime boss (Ewan McGregor).  The clip shows what looks like the meet-cute between the two in prison, where the apprentice walks by and shows the boss where he went wrong in his chess game.  McGregor is more intimidating than I expected.

Alicia Vikander, Jacek Koman, Matt Nable, and Tom Budge also star in the feature directorial debut of Julius Avery.  There is no U.S. release date yet, but Son of a Gun opens October 14 in Australia.  Watch the Son of a Gun clip after the break.
