In just a few short years, Melissa McCarthy has proven herself to be a major box office draw. This summer, she’ll put that appeal to the test again with her passion project Tammy. Her husband Ben Falcone directed the dark comedy, from a script they wrote together.
The plot centers on (you guessed it) McCarthy’s Tammy, a woman who’s just hit rock bottom. She’s desperate to get out of town, but she’s just crashed her car and doesn’t have any money. So she agrees to go on a road trip with her alcoholic grandma (Susan Sarandon), who wants to see Niagara Falls. The first teaser did a good job of setting the tone of the film; now check out the rest of the Tammy trailer, which lays out more of the story.

Melissa McCarthy co-wrote and stars in Tammy, a road-trip comedy opening July 2. The actresss’ husband, Ben Falcone, directed the film, which finds the main character on basically the worst day ever. She tries to get out of town, but has no car, so ends up on the road with her grandmother (Susan Sarandon). On paper, it sounds a little underwhelming but the prime Summer release date, and McCarthy’s last few hit films, definitely scream confidence. Does the trailer? Find out below. Read More »
The last time we saw footage from The Company You Keep — a political thriller directed by and starring Robert Redford — it was just about to premiere in Toronto. Now we’ve got a full, proper theatrical trailer for the movie. This trailer sets up the story a bit differently, using a dialogue cut-and-paste to lay out the story of two former Weather Underground members, one of whom is captured (Susan Sarandon), leading the other (Redford) to go on the run.
Shia LaBeouf is the reporter who goes on the trail of the story, giving the footage a real “All the President’s Men” sort of feel. Some of the rest of the impressive cast (Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Terrence Howard, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, Brit Marling, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper) gets time in this trailer, too, just to let audiences know that everyone showed up when Redford called.

Snitch is based — probably very loosely — on a real story in which a father tries to dig himself into the drug trade in order to help his son out of prison. The father here is played by The Rock, with Susan Sarandon showing up as the hard-ass prosecutor who doesn’t want to let his kid off easy, leading Dad into a gig driving for some pretty bad men in the hopes of taking down the people responsible for putting his kid behind bars.
Ric Roman Waugh (Felon, with Stephen Dorff) directs, and the supporting cast looks like the best part of the film: in addition to Sarandon you’ve got Michael K. Williams, Nadine Velazquez, and Jon Bernthal. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
With six stories spanning nearly three hours, told by an ensemble cast and three directors, the sheer amount of information presented by and discussions one can have about Cloud Atlas is staggering. Co-writers and directors Tom Tykwer, Andy and Lana Wachowski took David Mitchell‘s novel, which nests six stories within each other, and broke it down into one forward-flowing mosaic. Set in several time periods from the 1800s through the 2300s, the film blends genres and tones to show the human soul moving from century to century, and explore how our actions in one life might affect the next.
And that’s just a very superficial interpretation. There’s much, much more to the movie, which is why it’s one of the year’s best.
As one might expect on a production so massive, there are tons of bits of behind the scenes trivia and on-screen secrets. Were there additional stories meant for the film or novel? Were the directors ever on set together? How did characters get cast? Which actress thought she’d be fired? And what exactly happens at the end of the film? We’ve complied 15 things you probably didn’t know, or notice about Cloud Atlas. After the jump, read all about them. Read More »
