Viggo Mortensen has had a busy couple years, though he hasn’t been doing Hollywood films. The Two Faces of January (trailer) and Jauja (trailer) have premiered recently in Berlin and Cannes, respectively. Now he’s got a third film hitting a major fest this year. In Far From Men, French writer-director David Oelhoffen started with the Albert Camus short story The Guest to create what is, in many respects, a western — just one set in Algeria during the revolution of the mid/late 1950s. Check out the Far From Men trailer below. Read More »

Nightcrawler stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a guy who discovers that his intense work ethic and lightweight moral sense combine to make him a talent in the field of shooting bottom-feeding TV news. Initially unsuccessful in his job hunt, a chance encounter with a news team led by Bill Paxton leads Gyllenhaal’s character to start gathering news on his own… and perhaps even tweaking it a bit, as this new Nightcrawler trailer suggests. The film was recently moved to an October 31 opening; see the new trailer below. Read More »
The Woman in Black: Angel of Death follows up, obviously, on The Woman in Black, the 2012 gothic horror film that saw Daniel Radcliffe facing down a malevolent spirit. Part of the appeal of the first film was seeing Radcliffe out of his Harry Potter garb, but the movie was also effective as horror. It doesn’t leave much room for a direct sequel, however. And so Angel of Death moves forward to 1941, when two teachers and their students attempt to escape the Blitz in London. They end up at the Eel Marsh House, where the woman in black waits. Check out the Woman in Black sequel teaser below. Read More »
Katie Holmes is just about the last person you’d expect to see with a gun in her hand, angrily staring down violence in a small town. And that’s probably a significant part of the reason she was cast in Miss Meadows, from writer/director Karen Leigh Hopkins. Holmes plays a small-town teacher who has a dark secret. She doesn’t just teach manners to young kids; she also violently enforces them by night, with a pistol rather than a ruler. Check out the Miss Meadows trailer below.

A Good Marriage is based on Stephen King‘s novella from the Full Dark, No Stars collection, and it’s the first King screenplay to hit the big screen in a long time. The film stars Joan Allen, Anthony LaPaglia, Kristen Connolly, and Stephen Lang in a story about a woman who discovers that her perfect, loving husband is in fact a serial killer. Nice concept, but this first A Good Marriage trailer shows that it might falter in the execution. Check it out below. Read More »
