Knight of Cups

Terrence Malick‘s films are often quite patient in their pacing. They aren’t exactly high-energy, unless you find excitement in staring off into the distance for long periods of time, caressing a lover’s hand or hair, or talking about what it all means to be alive. Malick’s movies are invigorating in their own way, as tone poems. However, his latest film, Knight of Cups, looks quite enthralling, in a more conventional sense.

Watch the Knight of Cups trailer after the jump.

Green Room release

Green Room, the upcoming thriller from Blue Ruin writer/director Jeremy Saulnier, features Anton YelchinImogen Poots and Alia Shawkat as members of a band who are trapped in a backwoods venue by a white power gang led by Patrick Stewart.

The movie is perched near the top of my “most anticipated films of 2015” list, and there’s some good news and bad news on that front. The good news is that Green Room has been picked up for distribution in the US by the terrific A24, which also boasts films such as The Witch (see that ominous trailer here), The End of the TourEx Machina, and Slow West. The bad news is that the Green Room release isn’t set for this year.

She's Funny That Way

For the first time since 2001, we have a new Peter Bogdanovich film arriving this year. She’s Funny That Way (formerly titled Squirrels to the Nuts, a reference to Ernst Lubitsch’s Cluny Brown) stars Owen Wilson as Arnold, a theater director who gets involved with an escort and aspiring actress (Imogen Poots) whose therapist (Jennifer Aniston) is dating his playwright (Will Forte) — who, in turn, begins to fall for the escort.

Meanwhile, Arnold tries to duck the wrath of his wife (Kathryn Hahn), who’s also his star, along with her ex (Rhys Ifans). Lucy Punch is somehow involved as well. It’s a lot to keep track of, so see if you can keep up with the She’s Funny That Way trailer after the jump. Read More »

Roadies casting Wilson Poots

Patrick Stewart Green Room

Jeremy Saulnier is putting together the follow-up to his excellent thriller Blue Ruin, and he’s got a cast that makes the film an instant lock to see. Anton Yelchin, Alia Shawkat and Imogen Poots all star in Green Room, which Saulnier wrote and will direct. But it’s the most recent addition that will probably get your attention. Patrick Stewart has joined the cast to play the leader of a bunch of “white power skinheads.” Read More »

Jimi Hendrix biopic trailer

André Benjamin, aka André 3000 of Outkast, does a solid job of playing Jimi Hendrix in the movie Jimi: All Is By My Side. The film isn’t your typical biopic, as it veers away from providing a top to bottom account of the guitarist’s life. Instead, it focuses on the year of Hendix’s life in which he went from being an unknown supporting player to a guy on the brink of stardom.

During that year, he meets Linda Keith (Imogen Poots), who dates Keith Richards and consequently has the connections to get Jimi’s career started. The film wanders through this strange, intense year in the man’s life with an odd rhythm that gives it a unique feel. Some of that is captured in the new Jimi: All Is By My Side trailer, which you can see below. Read More »

Filth red-band trailer

In May, James McAvoy will show off his superheroic side as Charles Xavier in X-Men: Days of Future Past. But first, he’s gonna let out his inner villain in an Irvine Welsh adaptation.

The latest Filth red-band trailer has hit, and it shows McAvoy at his most unlikable. He plays Bruce Robertson, a sleazy, corrupt, drug-addicted cop who’ll stop at nothing to get what he wants. But the biggest obstacle standing in his way may be his own faltering grip on reality.

Jon S. Baird directed, and Imogen PootsEddie MarsanJamie Bell, and Jim Broadbent also star. Watch the video after the jump. Read More »

Andre Benjamin as Jimi Hendrix

John Ridley just had a great weekend as he won the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for his work on 12 Years a Slave. Even if there is still-simmering resentment between him and the film’s director Steve McQueen, taking home that Oscar, and the film’s own Best Picture win, have to have him feeling pretty good.

Ridley has his own directorial debut coming to theaters this year. All Is By My Side chronicles an early year in the career of Jimi Hendrix, picking up where the guitarist was “discovered” in a club by Linda Keith. The film follows Hendrix as he goes to London and assembles his first major band, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and prepares to play the Monterey Pop Festival.

We haven’t seen a trailer, but below you can see a clip of one scene, in which we see Andre Benjamin as Jimi Hendrix, in a dramatic moment with Linda Keith (Imogen Poots) during a conversation before he heads to Monterey. Read More »
