Bradley Cooper Just Wants to Get the Bad Guys in New AMERICAN SNIPER Clip; Plus 19 New Images

american-sniper-clip-images

Warner Bros. has released a new American Sniper clip and a batch of new images from director Clint Eastwood’s upcoming drama.  Bradley Cooper plays U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who served four tours of duty in Iraq and quickly became the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history.  His reputation extended across enemy lines, making him a prime target for the insurgency, and when he returned home to his wife and kids he struggled to leave the war behind.  I’ve seen the film and I really wasn’t crazy about it.  There’s a fascinating story to be told here, especially with regards to how Kyle’s life came to an abrupt end, but that’s not the one Eastwood is interested in telling; it’s a frustratingly one-dimensional portrayal of the war and its effects on those who fought in it.  Nevertheless, Cooper gives a strong performance as Kyle, which you can see here in this brief clip in which Kyle is arguing to be on the ground with the other soldiers instead of perched safely in his sniper’s nest.

Check out the new American Sniper clip after the jump, along with a batch of new images.  The film also stars Sienna Miller, Jake McDormanLuke GrimesSam Jaeger, Navid Negahban, Sammy Sheik, Mido Hamada, and Keir O’Donnell.  American Sniper opens in limited release on December 25th.

On the heels of the film finally screening for critics and guild groups, Universal Pictures has released a batch of Unbroken movie clips.  Directed by Angelina Jolie, the film tells the true (and incredible) story of Louis Zamperini (Jack O’Connell), a former Olympian and WWII bombardier whose plane crashed at sea in 1943.  Zamperini and two crewmates floated adrift for 47 days and 2000 miles, eventually finding themselves caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a POW camp where Zamperini was targeted by a sadistic overseer.  The film has been highly anticipated by many for its inspiring story and incredible behind-the-scenes (and in front of camera) team, so I’m looking forward to finally checking it out.

Watch 5 Clips and 11 Minutes of Behind-the-Scenes Footage From ANNIE

Sony Pictures has released five clips and more than ten minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from Will Gluck‘s modern reimagining of the Broadway classic Annie.  The film stars Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) as the spunky, street-smart title character, a foster kid living with the cruel Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz) until she’s taken in by the hard-nosed New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) in a thinly veiled campaign move.  There’s an undeniable cheese factor to Annie, but there’s also no doubt Quvenzhané Wallis can carry a film, and it’s nice to see Jamie Foxx loosen up a bit.  As someone who grew up on the original I’m excited to hear what they do with play’s poppy musical numbers, especially given Jay Z‘s involvement as producer.

Hit the jump to check out the new clips from Annie and get a behind-the-scenes look at the on-set hijinks.  The film also stars Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, and David ZayasAnnie opens in theaters December 19th.

20th Century Fox has released three clips and nearly 20 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from director Ridley Scott’s Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings.  The film is, of course, Scott’s take on the Bliblical story of Moses, with Christian Bale playing the former Egyptian prince and Joel Edgerton filling the role of the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses.  If nothing else, the film certainly looks to be visually impressive, as Scott returns to the scale of his previous period epics like Gladiator and Kingdom of Heaven.

Watch 5 New Clips from DUMB AND DUMBER TO, Plus Over 15 Images Tease Further Shenanigans from Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels

dumb-and-dumber-to-clips-images

Universal Pictures has released a batch of new Dumb and Dumber To clips as well as some new images from directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly’s upcoming comedy sequel.  The follow-up takes place 20 years after the original, as Jim Carrey’s Lloyd and Jeff Daniels’ Harry set off on a road trip in order to find a child Harry never knew he had.  Comedy sequels are very hard to pull off.  The problem with many of them is that they rely too heavily on revisiting jokes that worked well in the first movie, resulting in something that feels tired or too familiar.  There look to be some callbacks to the first Dumb and Dumber in this sequel (Brad Bluhm returns as Billy “Pretty Bird”, for one), but I’m hoping that they’re limited to a minimum.  Carrey and Daniels appear to be having a lot of fun reprising their roles, and I’m genuinely looking forward to seeing them goof off together onscreen once again.

Hit the jump to check out the Dumb and Dumber To clips and images.  The film also stars Laurie Holden, Kathleen Turner, Rob Riggle, Rachel Melvin, and Steve TomDumb and Dumber To opens in theaters on November 14th.

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.

A SECOND CHANCE Clips and Images Featuring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Go Deeper Into the Film’s Criminal Underworld

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.

Hit the jump to watch the collection of 22 Jump Street clips and behind-the-scenes footage.  The film also stars Ice CubeNick Offerman, Amber StevensPeter StormareRob RiggleDave FrancoJillian Bell, and Craig Roberts.  22 Jump Street opens in theaters on June 13th.
