new Dardenne Brothers trailer

The Kid With a Bike, the last film from sibling directors Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne, was one of the best films of 2011, and will probably end up standing as one of the best films of the decade. So we’d be excited at the prospect of any new film from the brothers. The fact that their new movie, Two Days, One Night, stars Marion Cotillard is just a lovely bonus. The film will premiere at Cannes next month, and the first new Dardenne Brothers trailer film is below. Read More »

The Normal Heart trailer

With each new breakthrough, HIV/AIDS becomes more treatable. But it wasn’t so long ago that the disease was completely new and utterly terrifying. In the first full-length The Normal Heart trailer, Mark Ruffalo plays an activist who witnesses the start of the AIDS crisis in the early ’80s. He’s so outraged by the public’s clueless, callous response that he decides to do something about it.

Julia Roberts plays a doctor who treats many of the disease’s first victims, Matt Bomer plays Ruffalo’s journalist boyfriend, and Taylor Kitsch and Jim Parsons play other activists who get wrapped up in the cause. Watch the new The Normal Heart trailer after the jump.

Joss Whedon In Your Eyes

Joss Whedon‘s next movie as a director is about as mainstream and big-budget as movies get. But his next release as a writer is more Much Ado About Nothing than Avengers. Directed by Brin Hill, In Your Eyes follows two people (Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David) who’ve never met and are separated by thousands of miles. Nevertheless, they share a metaphysical connection that neither of them can quite explain.

Tribeca Film Festival attendees will get to watch the full movie when it premieres this weekend, but the rest of the world can watch the opening scene right now. Watch the first In Your Eyes clip after the jump.

The Graduate Live Read

Early on in The Graduate, there’s that iconic moment. Ben Braddock, a recent college grad, is talking with the beautiful older family friend Mrs. Robinson. Ben says, “Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me.” It’s iconic thanks to director Mike Nichols’ choice of angle, the delivery of the line by Dustin Hoffman, and the way that one sentence sets the entire story into motion.

At Jason Reitman‘s final live read of the season, actor Jay Baruchel played the role of Ben Braddock. When he got to that line, delivered next to his Mrs. Robinson, Sharon Stone, the 32-year-old actor broke character, cocked his right arm on his side and whispered, “Yes!” He was excited, not just because he nailed the legendary line, but maybe he got the feeling what was to follow was going to go very well. Reitman’s casting of Baruchel as the nervous, unsure, yet charming and likable Ben couldn’t have been more perfect. The same could also be said for Sharon Stone, whose Mrs. Robinson was sexy, confident and cool.

Though both actors were merely sitting in chairs, reading lines of dialogue, their body language created an electric chemistry that turned the combination of a great cast and a flawless script into a memorable event. Below, read more details about the Film Independent at LACMA Live Read of The Graduate. Read More »

The Immigrant trailer

We got our first look at the Cannes 2014 slate this morning, but there are still a few Cannes 2013 films making their way to theaters. One is James Gray‘s The Immigrant, starring Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix, and Jeremy Renner.

Cotillard stars as Ewa, a Polish woman who emigrates to New York in 1920 with her sister Magda (Angela Sarafyan). The two are separated upon their arrival at Ellis Island when Magda turns out to be sick.

Desperate, penniless, and alone, Ewa accepts the help of a charming stranger named Bruno (Phoenix) who turns out to be a pimp. He traps her in a life of prostitution, but she sees the potential for salvation when she meets his more pure-hearted cousin Orlando (Renner). Watch the new The Immigrant trailer after the jump.
