Rosemary's Baby trailer

TV, like cinema, is currently awash with new takes on old movies. Prequels to both Psycho and Silence of the Lambs are currently on the air, with a reimagined version of the Coen Brothers’ Fargo set to debut this week. Now, coming up on the horizon at NBC is a new Rosemary’s Baby, starring Zoe Saldana, Patrick J. Adams, and Jason Isaacs.

If you want to get real technical about it, this miniseries isn’t a remake of the Roman Polanski film but a fresh adaptation of Ira Levin‘s novel. Either way, though, the story remains the same: attractive young couple gets pregnant, but then comes to realize that something is not right. Earlier teasers have been pretty stingy about the footage, but the new minute-long trailer offers plenty to look at. Watch the video after the jump.

Annie international trailer

Plucky orphan Annie made her Broadway debut over thirty years ago, and started out as a comic book strip character fifty years before that. But Sony’s Annie makes her young and new again, by transporting the action to modern-day New York City.

Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) plays Annie herself, who’s under the not-so-caring care of Miss Hannigan (Cameron Diaz). Her boundless optimism pays off when she crosses paths with Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx), a billionaire running for political office. Watch the new Annie international trailer after the jump.

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 »

God's Pocket trailer

With a cast that also includes Christina Hendricks, Richard Jenkins, John Turturro, and Eddie Marsan, there’s plenty of reason to check out the God’s Pocket trailer below. Read More »

 

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we try and grow a beard, get weirded out in a strange house, consider whether something was afoot when Kurt Cobain ”allegedly” shot himself, get all modern up in here, take in the freaks in the NYC, and get our twerk on.

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.
