What We Missed: Dedication Movie Trailer

Dedication

Dedication Movie PosterThe new movie trailer for Dedication came out while we were away from the real world at a place called Comic-Con). Dedication is a new independent romantic comedy about a misogynistic children’s book author (Billy Crudup) who is forced to work closely with a female illustrator (Moore) instead of his long-time collaborator and only friend (Tom Wilkinson).

“I’ve never been good at finding things. I’ve always been good at losing things.”

The Weinstein Co nabbed the film at Sundance this year. I heard some descent buzz for the film at the festival, but was unable to find a convenient open slot for a screening. A couple weeks ago, TWC released a movie poster for the film, which I really dug. The trailer has shades of Garden State and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Check it out after the jump.

I’m a sucker for Mandy Moore films. Call it a crush. But even Moore can’t save a horrible mess of a film, which was evident in Because I Say So and License To Wed. So the question now becomes: Did Moore star in two or three bombs in 2007? We’ll find out.

Dedication is scheduled to hit theaters on August 24th 2007.

Dedication Movie Poster

Dedication Movie PosterThe Weinstein Co has released the theatrical movie poster for Dedication, the new romantic comedy starring Mandy Moore and Billy Crudup. I heard some descent buzz for the film at Sundance, where Weinstein and First Look purchased the film for $4 million. The movie follows a misogynistic children’s book author (Crudup) who is forced to work closely with a female illustrator (Moore) instead of his long-time collaborator and only friend (Tom Wilkinson). The poster has shades of Squid and the Whale and Year of the Dog, but since the story involves a children’s book illustrator, it makes more sense.

I’m a sucker for Mandy Moore films. Call it a crush. But even Moore can’t save a horrible mess of a film, which is evident in Because I Say So and License To Wed. So the question now becomes: Did Moore star in two or three bombs in 2007? We’ll find out. Considering the film is actor Justin Theroux’s directorial debut, I’m not expecting much.

Dedication is scheduled to hit theaters on August 24th 2007. Check out the full poster courtesy of cinematical, after the jump.

License to Wed Movie Poster and Production Photos

License to Wed Movie PosterI love Mandy Moore, but what has happened to her film career as of late? She had a great run of teen films. She even elevated to some really interesting issue based comedies (Saved! and American Dreamz). Her latest effort, Because I Said So, was unwatchable. It was marketed towards the teen/college crowd, but in reality the film was for the Over-40 woman demographic.

Robin Williams has also had a good run of clunkers as of late (Happy Feet being the only exception. And don’t give me RV and Night at the Museum made money. Money does not mean quality). So it makes perfect sense that the two stars would team up for their next film, License to Wed. And if Warner Bros had any faith in this film, why did they give it a July 4th release date? I mean, going head to head with Michael Bay’s live action big screen adaptation of Transformers doesn’t mean the film is doomed… right? I hear the movie trailer will probably be attached to In The Land of Women, which hits theaters Friday. Expect to see it online soon.

Warner Bros has sent us over the new Theatrical movie poster for the film, seen right. Click on the image for a better view at Mandy Moore’s sour face. You can find 20 production photos and the official plot synopsis after the jump.

Movie Review: Because I Said So

Because I Said So

Returning from Sundance is a shocking experience. For almost two weeks I got to see some of the best that independent cinema has to offer. And there were quite a few films this year I did not like. Because I Said So makes me think I may have been a little too hard on some of those films. I forgot what lows a Hollywood effort could reach.
