It costs a jaw-dropping $4 million dollars to get a 30-second spot in the Super Bowl. Can you blame studios, then, for wanting to make the most of their purchase by hyping up the ads in advance? Marvel Studios has released a brief teaser for their latest Captain America: The Winter Soldier promo, which will debut during the big game on Sunday.
Additionally, the studio has unveiled a couple of new posters featuring the film’s main characters. Check ’em all out after the jump.

Along with dropping temperatures and changing leaves, one hallmark of the summer-to-fall transition is the gradual replacement of action-movie tentpoles with awards season hopefuls at the multiplex. With Labor Day weekend just around the corner, the first posters have dropped for two Oscar contenders coming to theaters in the cooler months.
The first poster, for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, features director/star Ben Stiller literally walking on air, while the one for J.C. Chandor‘s survival drama All Is Lost drags Robert Redford down into the water. Check them out after the jump.

We don’t see a lot of actors doing solo pieces on film. It takes guts to be the only person projected on a screen for 90 minutes. But in All Is Lost, Robert Redford plays a sailor whose boat collides with an abandoned shipping container, wounding his ship and setting him up for a very difficult time at sea. Redford is the only person in the film, so no one can hear him when he screams the one line in the trailer: “help!”
The film comes from J.C. Chandor, who made Margin Call, and this first trailer makes it out to be very effective, if quietly so. All the splashy review comments from the film’s Cannes debut certainly insist that we watch this. After looking at the trailer a couple times I’m inclined to agree. Read More »
Damn, how David Lowery‘s career has rocketed forward this year. After a few years in which he crafted a string of shorts and the feature St. Nick, Lowery had three films at Sundance this past January. They were Pit Stop (which he co-wrote), Upstream Color (which he edited), and the great modern-ish western Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, which he wrote and directed. Saints is, as far as I’m concerned, among the best films of 2013 so far; it will be released by IFC later this year.
Lowery was recently set to write a remake of Pete’s Dragon for Disney, and now he’ll direct Robert Redford in a film called The Old Man and the Gun. The story is centered on Forrest Tucker, a lifelong bankrobber who spent much of his life in jail, whose story came to light after he was arrested for a Florida bank robbery at the age of 78.
