Black Mass trailer

If you haven’t been impressed with the work Johnny Depp has been putting out over the past decade, with disappointments like Mortdecai, The Tourist, Dark Shadows, The Lone Ranger, Transcendence, and tired Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, it looks like Black Mass might restore your faith in the actor.

A new trailer for the crime thriller from Crazy Heart and Out of the Furnace director Scott Cooper has just surfaced showing off more of what appears to be an Oscar-worthy performance from Johnny Depp as the infamous Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, who was given free criminal reign thanks to his brother (Benedict Cumberbatch) being situated at the FBI.

Experimenter trailer

Just in case this month’s The Stanford Prison Experiment failed to satisfy your craving for fact-based Sundance dramas about messed-up psychological experiments, Magnolia Pictures has just dropped the new trailer for Experimenter.

Peter Sarsgaard stars as Stanely Milgram, whose name has become synonymous with his most famous experiment. In the early 1960s, with the horrors of Nazi Germany still a recent memory, he demonstrated the willingness of ordinary people to follow orders.

Also starring are Winona Ryder as Milgram’s wife, Jim Gaffigan as his colleague, and Anton Yelchin, John Leguizamo, Taryn Manning, and Anthony Edwards as some of their subjects. Watch the Experimenter trailer after the jump. Read More »

Black Mass trailer

“If nobody sees it,” Whitey Bulger tells his six-year old son in this new Black Mass trailer, “it didn’t happen.” But much of what we’ll see in this movie did happen, as Bulger, played here by Johnny Depp, was among the most notorious gangsters in Boston’s history — hell, in US history. He topped the FBI’s Most Wanted list for years. Depp may be channeling Jack Nicholson’s performance from The Departed, a performance which was also at least inspired by Bulger, but he still comes off as intense and terrifying in this new trailer.  Read More »

What’s a heroic band of gunslingers without a bad guy to fight? Thankfully Antoine Fuqua‘s The Magnificent Seven has finally found its villain in Peter Sarsgaard, who’ll play robber baron Bartholomew Bogue.

Sarsgaard joins a starry cast that includes Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke, and Vincent D’Onofrio. It no longer includes Jason Momoa, who has pulled out after entering talks earlier this month. More on the Magnificent Seven Peter Sarsgaard casting after the jump.  Read More »

Night Moves trailer

Following the release of an international promo last week, a second Night Moves trailer has been released, this time for the U.S. market. The Kelly Reichardt-directed thriller stars Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, and Peter Sarsgaard as a trio of radical environmentalists who join forces to blow up a dam.

Though all three profess to live by the ideals that led them to this extremist act in the first place, it’s not long before paranoia, doubt, and distrust set in. Watch the video after the jump.

Few modern American historical figures are as mysterious and mythical as chess champion Bobby Fischer. The first American, and youngest World Chess Champion, who famously disappeared for several decades, has been the subject of multiple narrative and documentary films.

A new effort has recently moved up on the board. It’s called Pawn Sacrifice and will be directed by Ed Zwick with Tobey Maguire set to play Fischer. Now Peter Sarsgaard and Liev Schreiber have joined the film, which has been gestating for several years with David Fincher once attached to direct. It finally starts filming in October. Read More »


Amanda Seyfried‘s covered more genres in the few of years than some actors do in their entire careers. She’s done an indie drama (The End of Love), a thriller (Gone), a musical (Les Misérables), a romcom (The Big Wedding), a kids’ cartoon (Epic), and now, she’s gonna do porn. Er, that is, a movie about porn.

Jeffrey Friedman and Rob Epstein‘s Lovelace chronicles the story of Linda Boreman, who became an international sensation after changing her name to Linda Lovelace and starring in the crossover porn hit Deep Throat. Seyfried plays the title character, while Peter Sarsgaard co-stars as her husband/Svengali Chuck Traynor. Watch the first trailer after the jump.

Blue Jasmine (header)

How many career resurgences has Woody Allen had at this point? I’ve lost track, but we’re square in the middle of one now, kicked off with the career-topping success of his 2011 release Midnight in Paris. His new film, Blue Jasmine, stars Cate Blanchett as “a New York housewife struggling through a life crisis.” That sounds middling to dire until you see what Blanchett is doing with it — she’s entitled and insufferable, but ragged and clearly, if comically, worn down to a nub.

This trailer introduces her character, and the sister (Sally Hawkins) who takes her into her San Francisco home when Jasmine’s husband (Alec Baldwin) turns out to be less than an upstanding dude. Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K., Andrew Dice Clay, Peter Sarsgaard, and Michael Stuhlbarg also star; you’ll only get a glimpse of Louis C.K. here, but he seems to be playing a suitor for Hawkins.
