Warner Bros. has released a batch of eight The Judge clips from director David Dobkin’s (Wedding Crashers) upcoming drama.  Robert Downey Jr. plays an attorney who returns home for his mother’s funeral only to learn that his estranged father (Robert Duvall), a judge who suffers from Alzheimer’s, has been accused of murder.  The film marks a major departure for Dobkin, who has previously helmed comedies like Fred Claus and The Change-Up, and it’s also a big debut of sorts for Downey Jr.—The Judge is the first film released under his production banner Team Downey, which he runs with his wife and producing partner Susan Downey.  These clips offer a good snapshot of the film’s tone, which is certainly dramatic but also tinged with Downey’s signature quick-witted sense of humor.

Watch the Judge clips after the jump.  The film also stars Vera FarmigaBilly Bob Thornton, Vincent D’OnofrioJeremy StrongDax ShepardLeighton MeesterKen HowardDavid KrumholtzBalthazar Getty, and Denis O’Hare.  The Judge opens in theaters on October 10th.

Fed up with movies that rely on jump scares and gore to excess to freak you out?  You’ve got to check out these two new clips for Backcountry.  The film marks Adam MacDonald’s feature directorial debut and centers on Jenn (Missy Peregrym) and Alex (Jeff Roop), a couple that takes to the woods to get away from the big city for a bit.  Alex insists he knows the way to the secluded Blackfoot Trail, but when their path disappears, they’re stuck out in the middle of nowhere with no food or water, and in bear territory.

Backcountry is due to make its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday, September 8th.  It’s already got distribution in Canada, but hopefully a domestic distributor sees it and snatches it up fast because after watching these Backcountry clips, you’ll be dying to see the full feature.  Hit the jump to check them out.

Hopefully you’ve had your morning coffee and don’t plan on having a glass of wine for a while now because these new clips from The Sound and the Fury and The Riot Club might make you think twice about drinking either of them.  James Franco’s latest is just days away from its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival and has its Toronto International Film Festival screening coming up right after, so the team behind it has unveiled a clip from the film, teasing the intensity we’ve got coming.

We’ve also got Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club making its way to TIFF for a world premiere.  Even though Joey King and Scott Haze both look like they can get a little nasty in that piece from The Sound and the Fury, the Riot Club clip actually might be tougher to stomach.  Hit the jump to find out why.

One of the feature TIFF films that I’m most looking forward to seeing is Love is All You Need director Susanne Bier’s thriller A Second Chance.  Last month we posted the trailer which was gripping, tense and dour (in a good way).  As I said then, this project looks like a little bit of a twist on Gone Baby Gone (also a good thing) in that it explores thematic elements that could be seen as a counterpoint to that film.  Now we have a series of five clips, totaling eight minutes of the film, that flesh about the characters a bit.

The film was written by frequent Bier collaborator Anders Thomas Jensen and stars Jamie Lannister himself,  Nikolaj Coster-WaldauUlrich Thomsen, Maria Bonnevie, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Lykke May Andersen also appear.  Hit the jump to check out the A Second Chance clips.  We also have new images from the film.  A Second Chance will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 9th.

Last weekend may have been consumed by Mark Wahlberg, Autobots, Dinobots and one too many Michael Bay low angle shots, but there was also a unique take on romantic comedies in the mix too, David Wain’s They Came Together.  It stars Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler as Joel and Molly.  While on a double date with Bill Hader and Ellie Kemper’s characters, Joel and Molly run through the history of their relationship, hitting an abundance of all-too-familiar rom-com troupes along the way.

They Came Together hit select theaters and On Demand on June 27th, so if you caught Matt’s review, you might have already checked it out, but if you’d like a taste of the type of comedy and tone Wain’s going for first, we got our hands on some exclusive material from the film that might help you out.  Hit the jump to check out seven They Came Together clips as well as some sound bites from Hader on the process of making the movie as well.

With director Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys opening June 20th, Warner Bros. has provided us with seven clips from the musical.  The film, which is based on the extremely popular stage musical, tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, chronicling the group’s rise in the 1960s with such hits as “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Walk Like a Man” and subsequent troubles that came with their success.   As this featurette points out, the Four Seasons were far from your poster boys for upstanding gentlemen, as Eastwood describes them as a group of “juvenile delinquents.”  The film stars John Lloyd Young, Vincent Piazza, Erich Bergen, Michael Lomenda, Renee Marino, Mike Doyle, and Christopher Walken.  Hit the jump to watch the Jersey Boys movie clips.

Sony Pictures has release four 22 Jump Street clips and nearly 15 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s highly anticipated comedy sequel.  Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill reprise their roles from the first movie as their undercover cop characters are tasked with infiltrating a college campus.  Normally this would be a prime example of mining familiar territory in order to take advantage of a popular property, but Lord and Miller are on a fantastic role (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street, The LEGO Movie) and have a wonderfully inventive sensibility, so I’m inclined to think that we’re in for something really funny and self-aware with this follow-up.

Warner Bros. has released a batch of four Edge of Tomorrow clips and five minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from director Doug Liman’s upcoming sci-fi actioner.  The film stars Tom Cruise as a military officer who keeps being killed during a doomed combat mission to take down a hive-like alien race, only to wake up and relive the same day over and over again.  In order to perhaps change his fate and save humanity, he works with a Special Forces warrior (Emily Blunt) to train himself to become a better soldier.  Early response to the pic has been highly positive, and all of the trailers have teased a thrilling and fascinating sci-fi yarn.  As a big Cruise fan myself, I’m very much looking forward to seeing this one in a couple of weeks.
