Star-studded ensemble prestige dramas might be to the fall season what superhero movies are to the summer one. Following Black Mass and ahead of The Martian comes the first trailer for The Big Short, starring Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Brad Pitt, and Ryan Gosling as four men who bet against the banks ahead of the 2008 financial crisis.
The Big Short is the first drama by Adam McKay, better known for comedies like Anchorman, Step Brothers, and The Other Guys. McKay and Charles Randolph (Love & Other Drugs) wrote the screenplay based on the nonfiction book by Michael Lewis (Moneyball). Watch The Big Short trailer after the jump. Read More »
For her first two features as a director, Angelina Jolie took on the wartime romance In the Land of Blood and Honey and the prisoner of war tale Unbroken. Now she’s heading into much more intimate territory with By the Sea, and the first trailer has just arrived.
Jolie writes and directs the drama and co-stars with husband Brad Pitt in the story of a couple spending time in 1970s France at a time when their marriage seems to be at its breaking point. It’s a pretty tense and ominous trailer only hinting at the struggles Jolie and Pitt’s characters are having in the film. Watch the By the Sea trailer after the jump! Read More »

Film adaptations of Stephen King stories are never a sure thing. On the one side there’s brilliant stuff like The Shining, Stand Be Me or The Shawshank Redemption. On the other side there’s disappointments such as Dreamcatcher, Thinner or 1408. Then, in the middle, there are dozens of films that have their fans, haters, and everything in between. Long story short, with the name “Stephen King” attached, you never know what you’re going to get.
Now, an old short story of King’s has been optioned for a film and it already has a pretty good start. The Jaunt, which is about a family who explores teleportation for travel to Mars, has been picked up by Brad Pitt‘s Plan B pictures. Mama director Andy Muschietti is eyed to direct.

More details are below. Read More »

Let’s just put all the good-looking, well-established movie star types in one movie. Maybe that’s the secret to success for a financial downturn movie. Adam McKay is writing and directing The Big Short, based on the book written by Michael Lewis of Moneyball fame. The book is the story of “the build-up of the housing and credit bubble of the 2000s,” so it may be quite a departure from McKay’s typical comedies. Brad Pitt‘s company Plan B is producing, and now Pitt is in line to star, along with Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling. Read More »
