Apparently today is trailer Thursday as several brand new trailers have made their way online. The next one, and probably not the last, is Daydream Nation, an indie-rock influenced teen drama, described by Variety as “Juno as reimagined by David Lynch, or a funnier, sunnier Donnie Darko.” It stars Kat Dennings (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, Thor) as the new girl in town who ends up falling for one of her teachers, played by Josh Lucas (A Beautiful Mind, Poseidon). Written and directed by Michael Goldbach, the film is scheduled for a release in New York and Los Angeles on May 6 followed by a release on DVD and Blu-ray May 17. We ran a trailer for the film almost a year ago but now that it’s actually coming out, we figured you might like to see the official one. Read More »

It’s been slow on the casting front since late December, when Hollywood pretty much shut down for the holidays. Now that everyone is back to work things are picking up slowly.

Christina Ricci has joined the cast of Bel Ami, which already stars Robert Pattinson and Uma Thurman. Based on Guy de Maupassant‘s short story ‘Bel Ami,’ the film will follow George Duroy (Pattinson), a young journalist who rose from poverty to become one of the most successful men in Paris via the ruthless and calculating bedding of the city’s most glamorous and influential women. Kristin Scott Thomas is also in the cast. Filming starts next month in Paris. [Production Weekly]
