The trailer for Disorder appears to be selling a paint-by-numbers thriller, but everything else about the movie seems to suggest that there’s more going on here than meets the eye. For starters, there’s Matthias Schoenaerts and Diane Kruger in the lead roles and you’d be hard-pressed to name a movie where those two phoned in their lead roles. And then there’s director Alice Winocour behind the camera, who co-wrote last year’s critically acclaimed drama Mustang. Even if the trailer is selling an accurate portrait of Disorder, there’s a definite chance it will be a fair bit more interesting than your boilerplate Hollywood action movie.

You look at Swinton and immediately believe that yes, she is a legendary singer because Swinton is everything.
The newest trailer for A Bigger Splash is enigmatic, seemingly skirting around what’s really going on in this movie’s core, but it’s easy to buy what it’s selling. How could you say no to a movie starring Swinton and Ralph Fiennes and the stars of Bullhead and Fifty Shades of Grey? That’s too strange of a line-up to ignore.

The first Far From the Madding Crowd trailer eschews dialogue in favor of a montage backed with a gorgeous song; the strength of this footage might be enough to entice any lit obsessives, Mulligan fans, and period film devotees.
