sharper

Apple and A24 are uniting for Sharper, a new film starring Julianne MooreSharper follows a con artist, which comes from writers Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka. There’s really not a whole lot to go on here – no director, no synopsis, no clue as to what type of film this is going to be. But this is just the latest title in the Apple/A24 partnership – a partnership that also includes Sofia Coppola’s On The Rocks and The Sky is Everywhere.

the staggering girl trailer

Luca Guadagnino seems to have gotten a taste for atmospheric horror after dipping his toes in the genre with his remake of Suspiria in 2018. His follow-up short film, The Staggering Girl has that creepy giallo-inspired effect to it, with stars Julianne Moore and Kyle MachLachlan making their way through a version of Rome that is much more unsettling than the one that Guadagnino showed in his dreamy romance Call Me By Your Name. Watch The Staggering Girl trailer below.

After the Wedding review

After the Wedding is a remake of Bird Box director Susanne Bier’s 2006 movie of the same name, and while I haven’t seen that version, this one is a muddled melodrama that never comes together in satisfying fashion.

Michelle Williams plays Isabel, an American ex-pat living in India and working at an orphanage. One day, she receives a surprise phone call to come to New York City, because high-powered businesswoman Theresa (Julianne Moore) wants to provide funding for her orphanage. Soon after Isabel arrives, Theresa invites her to her daughter Grace (Abby Quinn)’s wedding, which becomes the setting for a revelation about the relationship between the key players. Read More »

Gloria Bell Trailer

Hollywood has always had a problem with giving women leading roles once they start hitting their 40s and 50s. Obsessed with the fresh-faced, young women pouring into Los Angeles everyday, it’s one of the more shameful sides of show business. But thankfully that’s started to change a bit with great roles for women of all ages, and A24 has just released the first trailer that gives Julianne Moore one of those fantastic roles.

Gloria Bell (Julianne Moore) is a divorced woman just trying to meet the right man all over again, hitting up night clubs, dancing like no one is watching, and living her best life. That’s when she meets Arnold (John Turturro), and it looks like everything is coming up Gloria. At least at first. See what happens in the Gloria Bell trailer below. Read More »
