Here is the first trailer for Billy Bob Thornton’s first feature directing job in over a decade, Jayne Mansfield’s Car. The film takes place in the 1960′s and revolves around a man whose wife left him and moved England. She has died and wishes to be returned to Alabama; cue the culture clash.
Thornton wrote, directed, and starred in one of my favorite movies of all time, Sling Blade. This looks to be a return to form with a solid cast and blend of both comedy and drama. This will certainly be on my radar once it gets a distribution deal and release date. The cast I referred to includes Robert Duvall (legend), John Hurt, Kevin Bacon (loving his role here), Frances O’Connor, Robert Patrick (wow he looks different), and Ray Stevenson.
Here is a new international trailer for Lars von Trier’s Melancholia, and an older trailer from a few months ago I just found as well. In the sci-fi/psychological drama another planet that is going to collide with the Earth, but at the same time it also revolves around a wedding and the lives and relationships of certain people. It stars Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland, Alexander Skarsgard, Charlotte Rampling, John Hurt, Stellan Skarsgard and Udo Kier.
If anything, a Lars von Trier movie will surprise you (Dancer in the Dark, Dogville, Antichrist), so I do look forward to seeing Melancholia even if it does seem more mainstream than his previous works. The film premiered in May 2011 at the 64th Cannes Film Festival where Kirsten Dunst received the Cannes Film Festival’s Best Actress Award for her performance.
Here’s the press release, which includes a synopsis and the two trailers:
Warner Bros. Pictures gives us a look back at the first six Harry Potter movies and a look into the epic finale coming this week. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is the final adventure in the Harry Potter film series, the battle between the good and evil forces of the wizarding world escalates into an all-out war.
The stakes have never been higher and no one is safe. But it is Harry Potter who may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort.
It all ends here.
A new trailer for director Tarsem Singh‘s (The Fall, The Cell) Immortals has been released, you can see the first trailer over here. If you think it looks very much like 300, that’s because it does. Having seen Singh’s past work (you have to see The Fall) I trust he’s going to bring more than an unofficial 300 sequel to the table.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer and read the synopsis. Immortals stars Henry Cavill, Stephen Dorff, Isabel Lucas, Freida Pinto, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz, John Hurt, and Mickey Rourke. Check it out November 11, 2011.
An incredible way to leave us before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 arrives, an epic trailer that stands as the final trailer for any Harry Potter film, it all end indeed. This trailer is tailor made for fans of the film franchise and books, the build up is just what you have been feeling all along. Continue Reading…
