Movie Trailer: Conviction

Conviction

Fox Searchlight has released the trailer for Tony Goldwyn‘s Conviction, the “inspirational true story” of Betty Anne Waters (played by Hilary Swank), “a high school dropout who spent nearly two decades working as a single mother while putting herself through law school, tirelessly trying to beat the system and overturn her brother’s unjust murder conviction.” Sam Rockwell plays her brother, and the supporting cast includes Minnie Driver, Melissa Leo, Peter Gallagher, and Juliette Lewis. Seems like they took the Erin Brokovich formula, combining an inspirational true story with some great Academy Award winning and nominated actors. The voice over is a bit much, and the musical cue from Avatar is a bit distracting (yes, I know its originally from The Island…), but overall it looks like it could be a good film.

Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Last House on the Left Movie Trailer

Rouge Pictures has released the movie trailer for the remake of The Last House on the Left, the landmark suspense thriller that launched Wes Craven’s directing career. Is it just me or does this actually look like a fun thriller for a change? I haven’t seen Craven’s original in years but I don’t remember it looking this good. I’m also enjoying the extremely different and creepy cover of Sweet Child of Mine (anyone know who did it?) Watch the trailer and leave your thoughts after the jump.
