Rules Don't Apply Trailer

Warren Beatty gives a towering performance in Rules Don’t Apply. The film features one of Beatty’s most nuanced and vulnerable performances as the ambitious, charismatic, and deeply troubled Howard Hughes. Fans eager to see the actor, writer, and director’s return likely won’t leave the movie disappointed by his performance. Before Beatty ends his 15-year hiatus from acting next Friday, a new trailer without dialogue has been released for his fifth directorial effort.

Below, watch the Rules Don’t Apply music trailer.

It’s been 15 years since Warren Beatty has acted in a movie and 18 years since he stepped behind the camera, so the return of the Hollywood legend as both actor and director in Rules Don’t Apply should be enough to pique the curiosity of anyone with a sense of film history. But if a 79-year-old living legend isn’t enough, this film also features delightful young actors like Alden Ehrenreich and Lily Collins, a supporting cast stacked with some of your favorite actors, and a new trailer that makes Beatty’s return to the silver screen look like a charming, frothy, and likable time at the movies.

Rules Don’t Apply brings Warren Beatty back to us. Beatty, who hasn’t directed since 1998’s hilarious Bulworth, has returned with a movie that defines “longtime passion project.” Ever since seeing Howard Hughes in-person in 1973, Beatty has wanted to make a film about the man. He finally did it with Rules Don’t Apply, although it’s less a biopic, more of a romance between Lily Collins and Alden Ehrenreich‘s characters.

Rules Don't Apply Trailer

It’s been 18 years since Warren Beatty was behind the camera with the political comedy Bulworth. Now he’s finally back in the director’s chair with a project that has been kicking around for a long time. Though the project has always been said to focus on Howard Hughes, the first trailer for the film shows that this is more of an ensemble romantic comedy.

Rules Don’t Apply follows the budding romance between a young aspiring actress (Lily Collins) and her married driver (Alden Ehrenreich) as they both have to deal with the eccentricities of the famous billionaire Howard Hughes (Warren Beatty), who employs them both.

It’s been almost two decades since Warren Beatty has directed a film. He last starred in the disastrous Town & Country, but his last directorial effort was 1998’s Bulworth, a hilarious and somewhat overlooked film. The director is famously known for taking his time with each project, but this is his longest hiatus yet. However, we’ll soon see Beatty return to the big screen this November when the actor, director, producer, and writer’s newest picture, now titled Rules Don’t Apply, finally opens in theaters.

Below check out the Rules Don’t Apply first look.

Seth Grahame-Smith‘s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was once such a hot property, bidding for the movie rights began before the book even hit shelves. But it’s spent the past five years in development hell, shuffling from one high-profile movie star and director to another.

The last we heard of it was in May, when the David O. Russell-penned script landed with Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) and Lily Collins (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones). Progress has been pretty quiet since then, but the project is apparently far from dead — in fact, it’s nearing the start of production. More details after the jump.

The Mortal Instruments City of Bones

The combined powers of Harry Potter, Twilight, and The Hunger Games have opened the floodgates for a tidal wave of sci-fi / fantasy YA adaptations — it seems like a new potential franchise goes into development every week. As with any genre, though, not all of these films are created equal.

The best ones capture the imaginations of young and old alike, while the worst are forgotten almost before they even open. Time will tell where on the spectrum The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones will fall, but feel free to make an educated guess based on the new trailer after the jump.

Lily Colins / Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

I suppose it’s appropriate that a movie about the undead would itself have trouble staying dead. After years of failed attempts by Lionsgate to bring Seth Grahame-Smith‘s Jane Austen spoof Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to the big screen, the project suddenly sprang back to life this spring when a new backer signed on. And now those folks have managed to get a new star and director on board as well.

Burr Steers has just signed on to direct Lily Collins in the film, which is now going by the title Pride, Prejudice, and Zombies. Because that first “and” was the problem all along, I guess. Hit the jump for more details.

Nothing can stop the wave of YA adaptations coming to movie theaters in the next year or two — not even the relative disinterest in the movies. Beautiful Creatures and The Host didn’t really hit so far this year, but there are more to come. Earlier today we saw the trailer for the new Percy Jackson film, and now here’s the first full trailer for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.

The film features Lily Collins as a young woman who learns that there is a shadow conflict just out of sight, with half-angel warriors battling demons right before the unseeing eyes of humanity. With her own eyes open to the conflict, Collins’ character is quickly drawn in. This trailer shows far more of the newly-done effects than did the teaser, and it also makes the film look rather like a revamped Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Have a look below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

If Girls seems to chalk up Hannah’s bad ideas to her relative youth, the first trailer for Writers suggests such misguidedness may simply be an occupational hazard. In the directorial debut by Josh Boone, Greg Kinnear plays an acclaimed novelist who deals with his divorce by alternately spying on his ex-wife (Jennifer Connelly) and screwing his married neighbor (Kristen Bell).

His kids Samantha (Lily Collins) and Rusty (Nat Wolff) are both budding writers as well, though they take totally opposite approaches to life. She racks up “experiences” in the form of notches on her bedpost, while he pines after a pretty high school classmate (Liana Liberato) with a mean boyfriend. Watch the first trailer after the jump.
