Gone Girl              Trailer


(Ian)  I’m in the minority of readers that didn’t think the book was great. There was definitely a film in there, but due to some overly cutesy writing, it didn’t entirely work for me. My hope is with Flynn adapting her own novel, that by filtering it through Fincher, it becomes something more. 


A Most Wanted Man          Trailer


Anton Corbijn’s adaptation of a John Le Carre novel, A Most Wanted Man, starring PSH in one of his final performances, releases on July 25th 


Obviously we highly anticipated this one. 


God’s Pocket              Trailer


The word out of Sundance on John Slattery’s directorial debut, God’s Pocket, due to release on May 9th, has not been good, but it’d be very hard to pass on one of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s last performances. 


Expect it to be discussed on The Flicksation Podcast soon. 


Maps to the Stars                Trailer


(Ian) David Cronenberg’s new film is surely near the top of my most anticipated list. There may not be a young actress attaching herself to more interesting material of late than Mia Wasikowska. Plus RPatz!


The Homesman         Trailer


(Ian) In case you needed a dose of Tommy Lee Jones.

The Drop                       Trailer


This comes from the director of Bullhead, stars James Gandolfini (amongst a ton of talent) and is right near the top of all of our must watch lists. The Drop, formerly known as Animal Rescue, releases on September 19th.

TRANSCENDENCE     trailer…

(Eric) The first trailer is out for Wally Pfister’s directorial debut TRANSCENDENCE.    Depp, Freeman, and Kate Mara star. I am going to avoid seeing this trailer until I am forced to in the theater because I am definitely an opening day attendee.

NIGHT MOVES      International Trailer…

(Eric) The new trailer for Kelly Reichardt’s latest, NIGHT MOVES.   I guess Peter Sarsgaard is the new go-to guy for films about environmental terrorism. I am looking forward to this quite a bit…

The Giver                     Trailer


(Ian) Is this just more of the same generic Young Adult stuff, or something more? Someone who has read the book, let us old folks know.
