New ‘Interstellar’ 60-Second Trailer Adds More Intrigue to Nolan’s Latest
Director Christopher Nolan has been deservedly getting some run around here recently. His ouevre was dissected in a best to worst film list and his upcoming movie sits atop our poll of most anticipated movie to come (cast your vote in our sidebar!). Now we see the latest short TV trailer for his end of the year epic, Interstellar. The film, which stars Matthew McConaughey, but also includes Michael Caine, Jessica Chastain, Matt Damon and Casey Affleck to name a few, is about a man going to save the world in outer space (in a nutshell). The trailer should get you sufficiently hyped about the upcoming feature. Enjoy.
A Terry Gilliam Film Stars Christoph Waltz: ‘The Zero Theorem’ Movie Trailer
Terry Gilliam’s crazy mind (the creator of Twelve Monkeys and Brazil) delivers another in that same vein (Brazil comes to mind immediately after watching the trailer below). Christoph Waltz, Oscar-winning star of Inglourious Basterds, stars as an “IT drone who’s lost his soul and maybe his mind” according to Time Out. The Zero Theorem is getting what you would expect from early reviews. It’s a mixed bag. A 30 from Variety and 80 from Empire tell you all you need to know about it’s divisiveness. Oddly, the film has been in development forever, been reviewed/seen long ago and finally released. These problems do it no favors up front, but have a look at the zaniness for yourself and determine if its your cup of tea. Of note: Be on the lookout for Matt Damon appearances. The film is out now. Enjoy.
Martin Scorcese Presents: ‘The Revenge of the Green Dragons’ Movie Trailer
This is kind of interesting considering I just wrote about Infernal Affairs very recently. Now, the director of that film brings us another stylish thriller that is set here in the states. With the executive producing help of legendary director Martin Scorcese, The Revenge of the Green Dragons movie trailer is upon us. The film is set to debut next month, oddly enough on DirecTV before it launches into theaters a month later. The film looks to be in the same style and vein as Infernal, perhaps with a more gangster twist. Have a look for yourself and let us know what you think about the asian gang flick.
Satirical ‘Dear White People’ Movie Trailer Also Does Not Spare Blacks
A Sundance winning movie Dear White People has its first official trailer. I was expecting to hate Dear White People based on the title alone. I very well may have been wrong in that racist, stereotypical prejudgement, although early IMDB reviews are not flattering: 4.2/100 on 811 votes. Okay, I’m taking it too far, but you get the point. The trailer directs satirical humor on race relations in all directions and based on the 2 and a half minute look below, it may indeed be worth your while. Whites, blacks, and even a shot at mexicans can be found within. Normally, when you see a title like this, you know it is attempting to draw controversial attention to itself and while that is assuredly the case, there still could be laughs and truths to be had. We will see.
Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike in ‘Hector and The Search For Happiness’ Movie Trailer
In this often disillusioned world, a movie about looking for happiness seems appropriate. Thus, the deliberately titled Hector and The Search For Happiness is timely.
The film is based on the bestselling novel by François Lelord, and Pegg plays a disillusioned psychiatrist searching the globe to find the secret to happiness.(Deadline)
Hector (Simon Pegg) leaves his love (Rosamund Pike) to begin his quest that takes him to remote locations and has him meeting all types of people. Will he return fulfilled or will he forever be trapped in a state of never ending searching? Alas, you need to see the movie in order to find out the answer, yes? Enjoy the trailer.
David Fincher’s New ‘Gone Girl’ Trailer with Ben Affleck & Rosamund Pike
Director David Fincher’s Gone Girl is one of the most anticipated films of the year. It is currently tearing up the poll on our site for being just that. We saw the first trailer for the film not too long ago, and while cold and didactic, it wasn’t particularly revealing. This latest trailer has a little more going on for it. Admittedly, most of the excitement surrounding this film for fans is simply based on the trust that is held for the director. The casting of Affleck may put more asses in the seats at the end of the day, but I wouldn’t view his inclusion as a particularly needle swaying issue one way or another. Have a look and enjoy.
Christian Bale in Ridley Scott’s ‘Exodus: Gods & Kings’ Movie Trailer
Christian Bale stars as Moses in director Ridley Scott’s latest epic. The man behind the 2000 hit Gladiator and the not so much flop Kingdom of Heaven (Orlando Bloom may have had something to do with that), comes back to a similarly-looking film with a bigger star. Whereas Gladiator made Russell Crowe a star, Bale is an established lead of the highest order, who can make Hollywood fare or Oscar fare and sometimes both. A good combination to have when you are looking for a hit like Scott is. This biblical film has a good chance to do just that.
The Exodus Gods and Kings trailer can be seen in its entirety below. Have a look and wait for the film to arrive soon.
Brad Pitt & Logan Lerman Lead David Ayer’s ‘Fury’ Movie Trailer & Synopsis
David Ayer, the writer behind Training Day and director of End of Watch leaves behind the cop genre for war with his upcoming feature Fury. Fury stars Brad Pitt and Logan Lerman in a World War II epic. The trailer itself is a mix of action and drama, with somewhat typical genre tropes though there is enough room for hope that the film will bring more to the table. The plot synopsis via Wikipedia is below:
The film is set during the last months of World War II in April 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theater, a battle-hardened U.S. Army sergeant in the 2nd Armored Division named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank called “Fury” and its five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.
