We’ve seen a trailer and clip from Sofia Coppola‘s new movie Somewhere, but with festival season approaching and the film making a debut at the Venice Film festival in a week or so, the picture remains a bit of a mystery.

But now we know a little bit more, thanks in part to a recent interview with Coppola, who talks about the genesis of the film. There’s also a soundtrack lineup so you can get some idea of the tone of the film based on this collection of songs. All the info is after the break. Read More »

The director Peter Medak has had an interesting career. While he’s done mostly TV for the past few years, he made a mark early on with the unusual Peter O’Toole film The Ruling Class. Since then he’s made a bit of crap here and there, as well as a few other good, or at least interesting movies, like The Changeling, The Krays and Romeo is Bleeding.

Now he’ll direct Stephen Dorff and Maria Bello in a thriller called Carjacked. Read More »

Movie Trailer: Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere

Sofia Coppola's Somewhere

Focus Features has released the first movie trailer for Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere starring Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning. Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. It very much feels like a thematic/tonal sequel to Lost in Translation, another Coppola film about famous father figure connecting with a daughter figure (more metaphoric in the other film) in a hotel.

This looks like it could be a return to form for Coppola. Sofia’s first two films Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation were some of my favorite movies of their respective years of release. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below!
