Wrinkled and pale, the face of a woman stares into the camera as she lay lifeless on her pillow, her young daughter calmly watching from a chair in the corner. This is the introductory shot of director Richard Shepard’s The Perfection. An immediate glimpse into the twisted and traumatic story that tackles notions of PTSD, Shepard delivers a bold feature that keeps audiences vividly engaged throughout. Read More »

It’s been fun to see Jude Law drink swear, fuck, and punch his way through earlier trailers for Dom Hemingway. The handsome British actor plays a safecracker who’s just completed a twelve-year stint in prison, and seems determined to make up for lost time by partying his way to an early grave.
But if there’s one thing the movies love more than a bad boy, it’s a bad boy on his way to redemption. So the latest promo downplays his wild antics just a tad in favor of highlighting some more emotional material involving his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke). Misfits‘ Nathan Stewart-Jarrett makes an appearance, as does Clarke’s lovely singing voice. Watch it after the jump.

Jude Law is a pretty, pretty man, and (like many actors) he’s enjoyed a long, healthy career in part by capitalizing on this fact. But in Dom Hemingway, he’s nothing like the handsome, elegant presence we’ve come to expect. Instead, he looks bleary and bloated and altogether slimy, and his performance looks all the more entertaining for it.
Directed by Richard Shepard, the British crime dramedy stars Law as a loud, lewd safecracker just coming off of a twelve-year stint in prison. He reunites with his BFF (Richard E. Grant) to try to get his life back on track, which means trying to collect what he’s owed from his boss (Demián Bichir) and mending his relationship with his daughter (Emilia Clarke). Check out the newest red-band trailer after the jump.

After a string of strong supporting roles, Jude Law returns to the spotlight in Dom Hemingway. And what a noisy, colorful return it may be.
The gangster pic stars Law as a safecracker who’s just spent twelve years in prison for keeping his mouth shut. Once out, he reconnects with his old life by trying to collect his due from his boss (Demián Bichir) and make up with his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke). Richard E. Grant plays Dom’s best friend, who’s along for the ride.
The first trailer has just hit, and you can check it out after the jump. Be warned that it’s NSFW, unless your own boss doesn’t mind seeing Law’s bare bottom on your computer screen.
