This weekend’s Transformers: Age of Extinction is the first entry in the franchise not to use a Linkin Park tune as its main theme. But that’s okay, because Linkin Park has found another way to contribute to the American cinema landscape.
Today we have the first trailer for Mall, directed by Linkin Park member Joseph Hahn and featuring music by Linkin Park. The indie drama follows five people who come together after a shooting at a shopping mall. Cameron Monaghan (Shameless), James Frecheville (Animal Kingdom), Gina Gershon, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Peter Stormare star. Watch the Mall trailer after the jump.

Imagine the Lonely Island video “Motherlover” as a sun-drenched literary drama, and you have the basic premise of Anne Fontaine‘s new film Two Mothers. Naomi Watts and Robin Wright star as two childhood pals living side-by-side on a gorgeous Australian beach, along with their strapping sons Ian (Xavier Samuel) and Tom (James Frecheville). Their lives are idyllic but lonely, and it’s not long before the two women begin eyeing each other’s sons with something more than motherly affection.
There’s obvious potential for serious sleaze, but the film has some classy pedigree behind it. It’s an adaptation of a novella by Nobel laureate Doris Lessing, and Fontaine approaches the material with an elegant eye. Toss in two acclaimed actresses, and, well… it still looks kind of trashy, but it could also be genuinely moving and thought-provoking. Watch the trailer after the jump.
