new Cymbeline trailer

Michael Almereyda is the latest to tweak William Shakespeare’s work to suit his purposes. Almereyda’s Cymbeline sees him teaming one more with Ethan Hawke, who starred in the director’s Hamlet in 2000. Cymbeline envisions the original text as “an epic battle between dirty cops and a drug dealing biker gang set in a corruption-riddled America.” Ed Harris also stars, along with Milla Jovovich, John Leguizamo, Penn Badgley, Dakota Johnson and Anton Yelchin. Check out the new Cymbeline trailer below, along with a new clip. Read More »

new Foxcatcher teaser

Here’s another terrific new Foxcatcher teaser. Bennett Miller‘s new film is based on a true story about a wealthy guy (Steve Carell) who builds a facility to train wrestlers in the hope of winning gold at the 1988 Olympics. The wrestler he pinned his hopes upon, played here by Channing Tatum, was the younger brother of a more successful grappler, played by Mark Ruffalo. And it seems like the younger guy had some problems. In fact, it seems like a couple people have problems. We’ll leave it at that.

The marketing push for the movie so far has been all about setting up broken characters and some really heavy atmosphere, and this new Foxcatcher teaser continues in that mode. There’s little hint of where the story goes, but based on the way this teaser is cut, you know it won’t end well. Read More »

Connection trailer

La French, aka The Connection for international festival audiences, jumps off from the same ’60s and ’70s drug-trafficking patterns that inspired The French Connection. Jean Dujardin stars as a young magistrate thrust into an attempt to corral international heroin smuggling, and follows his “violent six-year campaign to bring down the kingpin of a major narcotics ring.”

A French-language trailer (no subs, sorry) has arrived just in advance of the film’s world premiere at TIFF. Shot on 35mm, this one has a great look, and Dujardin seems to be in a particularly energetic mode. Cédric Jimenez directed the film, which also stars Gilles Lellouche, Céline Sallette, and Benoît Magimel. Check out The Connection trailer below. (Update: there’s an English-subbed trailer now, too!)

Tyler Perry Gone Girl

The multi-hyphenate confessed he didn’t know who Fincher was when he signed on for the Gillian Flynn adaptation Gone Girl. If he had, he probably wouldn’t have joined at all. Hit the jump to find out why.

Gone Girl TV Spot

Ben Affleck knows a thing or two about negative PR, but even his Gigli-era troubles have nothing on Nick Dunne’s. The latest Gone Girl TV spot stacks the deck against Nick, pegging him as the prime suspect in the disappearance of his beautiful wife Amy (Rosamund Pike).

Of course, if the case were that straightforward there’d be no movie for David Fincher to make. Fortunately, as those who’ve read Gillian Flynn‘s book know, he’ll have plenty of twists and turns to work with before reaching the ugly conclusion. Hit the jump to watch the new Gone Girl TV spot.
