Maps to the Stars trailer

It’s a good day when you get to see footage from one of your most anticipated films of the year, and this Maps to the Stars trailer is our first look at real footage from David Cronenberg‘s new movie. The film stars Mia Wasikoska as a young woman who bears a visible external scar, and probably some pretty serious internal damage as well. She turns up in Hollywood and scores a job as personal assistant to an actress played by Julianne Moore, but we soon learn that the girl has more on her mind than just doing her job well. Check out the trailer below for hints of much stranger stuff to follow.

Update: A second trailer has been released. It is even less safe for work than the first, but it is also actually a proper trailer rather than a sales reel. Both are embedded below.

Update 2: The sales trailer has been pulled.

gone girl trailer

Here’s the first full Gone Girl trailer, showing us the fruits of David Fincher‘s recent labors. The thriller adapts Gillian Flynn‘s best-selling novel (with a new ending scripted by Flynn) and stars Ben Affleck as a man whose wife (Rosamund Pike) goes missing on their fifth wedding anniversary. As the mystery of her disappearance persists, eyes turn towards Affleck.

This trailer should keep fans of the book happy, as it has more than enough imagery to recall the book’s key moments and general tone. And movie fans should love this teaser as it lays out many basic concepts without giving away anything specific. This looks and feels like a mystery, and a very engaging one at that. Read More »

Gone Girl first footage

David Fincher‘s next film is an adaptation of Gillian Flynn‘s novel Gone Girl, and the first footage from the film is now available. Unfortunately, this is one of those Entertainment Tonight teases, which means that irritating music and voiceover is slathered over the footage.

The first real trailer for Gone Girl will arrive on Monday, but in the meantime try to filter out the ET garbage and take a look at flashes of footage featuring Ben Affleck as a man whose wife (Rosamund Pike) goes missing, leading to difficult times for the guy. Read More »

A Most Wanted Man trailer

One of the very last films Philip Seymour Hoffman completed before his passing this past February was A Most Wanted Man, Anton Corbijn‘s adaptation of John le Carré‘s novel. The film premiered at Sundance this year to mostly (if not wildly) positive reviews, and is now heading toward a theatrical release this summer.

Hoffman leads the contemporary thriller as Günther Bachmann, a German spy looking for a half-Chechen, half-Russian immigrant (Grigoriy Dobrygin) with possible terrorist ties. The film looks checking out for many reasons, not least of which is the chance to hear Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, and Willem Dafoe try out their best German accents. Watch the first A Most Wanted Man trailer after the jump.

Borgman trailer

There are some wizards cutting trailers for Drafthouse Films, and this new Borgman trailer is quite good, and very chilling. The film is something of an enigma: a man fleeing a strange persecution turns up on the doorstep of a bourgeois family, and soon ingratiates himself into the family’s life, if not without a few difficulties along the way.

The story that follows is like the bastard child of Luis Buñuel and Micheal Haneke, with the influence of Dogtooth by Yorgos Lanthimos — an unusual, unsettling, and violent demolition of accepted social politics. This trailer captures the film’s spirit; watch below.  Read More »

keanu reeves knock knock

Eli Roth made a return to directing with last year’s The Green Inferno, which will be released in the US on September 5. He’s quickly following that film with a new horror/thriller called Knock Knock, and has just set Keanu Reeves to star. This film sounds like it will be a bit different than Roth’s other directorial efforts, however, as he describes it as the result of an ambition to make “a classic psychosexual thriller.” Read More »
