Philip Seymour Hoffman's Jack Goes Boating
Philip Seymour Hoffman makes his directorial debut with Jack Goes Boating, which premieres at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival as part of the Premieres category. Written by Bob Glaudini, the story follows a stoner limo driver who looks for different ways to improve his skill-set as a way to attract a girlfriend, and goes on a blind date, which “sparks a tale of love, betrayal, friendship, and grace centered around two working-class New York City couples.” Hoffman also stars in the romantic comedy, alongside Amy Ryan, John Ortiz, Daphne Rubin-Vega, and Tom McCarthy.

American Gangster

The international trailer for Ridley Scott’s American Gangster in now online. This trailer is a lot more action packed than the trailer from a few months ago. I’m extremely impressed. This is one of must watch films of the fall. I don’t think there is any way this movie could be bad. If anything, it might disappoint because of such high expectations. It almost seems like Scott has made a Scorsese film. Mozart’s Requiem serves a perfect background soundtrack.

The film is based on an article from Mark Jacobson, about a drug lord who smuggles heroin into Harlem during the 1970s by hiding the stash inside the coffins of American soldiers returning from Vietnam. The film stars Denzel Washington, Russell Crow, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Josh Brolin, Armand Assante, RZA, John Ortiz, John Hawkes and Ted Levine. Check out the trailer after the jump.
