Here is the anticipated first trailer for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Josh Brolin stars as the “physically-altered” Dwight (Clive Owen in the first film), who is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord (Eva Green), and then watches his life go straight to hell. He says the title in the movie! It’s good to see Mickey Rourke on the screen again; he owned this role back in 2005 and seems to be back at home here.
The film also stars Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Stacy Keach, and Julia Garner.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens on August 22nd, watch the trailer below:
Sam Rockwell is one of my favourite actors and I find it a shame that he hasn’t had a so-called “breakout role” yet. He’s appeared in numerous memorable supporting roles in a load of films and usually ends up being the best part of them.
His newest film, Better Living Through Chemistry, has the actor portraying a small town pharmacist who gets in over his head when he becomes involved with a bored trophy wife played by Olivia Wilde. I know it sounds like run of the mill romantic comedy fodder, and the poster certainly doesn’t help matters, but judging from the trailer it looks like we’re in for a fun dark comedy that could surprise us.
Check out the trailer for yourself after the jump!
Here is the first Trailer for Derek Cianfrance’s The Place Beyond the Pines Starring Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper. It could be the last trailer of the year we post; it could also be my favorite trailer of 2012 and a favorite movie of 2013 if it lives up to what we have heard and see in the trailer – that it’s awesome.
The film centers on two fathers: Luke (Ryan Gosling) is a professional motorcycle rider who turns to bank robberies to support his newborn son. But when he crosses paths with father and rookie police officer (Bradley Cooper), their violent confrontation spirals into a tense generational feud. Who do you root for here?
The Place Beyond the Pines also stars Eva Mendes, Ben Mendelsohn, Rose Byrne and Ray Liotta.
The film opens March 29, 2013.
Welcome to The CoF Weekend Preview, here is a look at what’s opening this weekend. Check out our Fall & Holiday Movie Guide for the rest of the year’s releases.
This is the only big release this weekend, so give it a chance because it looks like a lot of fun. There is also something called The Collection, a sequel to the 2009 movie The Collector (I see what they did there). For fans of Goodfellas and The Sopranos, two of the greatest anything ever, it’s also a chance to see a movie with the stars of those respective works, Ray Liotta and James Gandolfini. This movie was made for men, but ladies hear me out: Twilight has been #1 now for two weeks at the box-office; it’s time to let the guys have this one.
Here a new trailer for Killing Them Softly starring Brad Pitt as a mob enforcer called in to investigate the robbery of a high-stakes card game. It’s a shorter trailer than the one we showed you before [see here], but still does a good job at showing off the carnage to come.
The film also stars James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, and Richard Jenkins.
Killing Them Softly, based on George V. Higgins’ crime novel Cogan’s Trade, follows Jackie Cogan (Brad Pitt), an enforcer who investigates a heist that takes place during a high stakes poker game perpetrated by two junkies played by Scoot McNairy (Monsters) and Ben Mendelsohn (Animal Kingdom). Andrew Dominik (Chopper, Assassination of Jesse James) both writes & directs the film.
Killing Them Softly opens November 30th.
Well The Details looks like a complete mind bender, and this is just from the bizarre trailer of course. Tobey Maguire stars as a married man who makes a series of very bad decisions (cheaters gonna cheat) and suffers through the repercussions. I’m all for dark comedies, but is this what that is? I couldn’t really tell. Elizabeth Banks, Laura Linney, and Ray Liotta star in it, so there’s that.
The Details will be available VOD on October 5th and then a theatrical release on November 2nd. After the odd synopsis, watch the trailer.
When hungry raccoons discover worms living under the sod in a young couple’s backyard, the pest problem sets off a wild and absurd chain reaction of domestic tension, infidelity, organ donation and murder by way of bow and arrow.
The Iceman takes a look at the life of Richard Kuklinski, a professional hitman who kept his work secret from his family and took many lives over a few decades. It’s a great trailer below with Michael Shannon looking great as always, we’re fans of his around here you may have noticed.
The film also stars Winona Ryder and Chris Evans. The Iceman premiered at the Venice Film Festival and is to play at the Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals.
FYI: He received the nickname “The Iceman” because he froze the bodies of his victims in order to disguise their time of death and throw the authorities off track. That’s cold man.
Watch the trailer below:
The first trailer for Killing Them Softly directed by Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James) and starring Brad Pitt, Pitt, Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta, and James Gandolfini has a great trailer out now.
The film follows Pitt as a mob enforcer hired to restore order after the robbery of a mob-protected card game. It doesn’t look like a typical mob movie that’s for sure, but I sure do hope that Liotta and Gandolfini share some screen time, that’s Goodfellas and The Sopranos people! The trailer shows off some comedy and a Johnny Cash track that is very fitting. Killing Them Softly opens on October 19th.

If you’re new to The City of Films (hi there), then you may not know how obsessed we are with Goodfellas. It’s a perfect film and deserves daily recognition for everything it’s done for influences on just about everything considered entertainment today. Too much? I don’t think so.
GoodFellas based on the bestseller ‘Wiseguy’, by Nicholas Pileggi and directed by Martin Scorsese (also known as the man) is turning 20, to mark the film’s anniversary, GQ interviewed nearly sixty members of the cast and crew, along with some noteworthy admirers of the picture. It’s an extensive look back that worth the read, have fun everybody! Now go home and get your fuckin’ shinebox. [Check it out]
Liotta (Henry Hill): I think I was the first person that Marty met, but it took maybe a year. It was a very long process. I was new. I’d only done three movies at the time. All I heard was that the studio wanted somebody else—”What about this?” “What about Eddie Murphy?”
Isiah Whitlock, Jr. (Doctor): If I start watching it, I’ll be up all night. Sometimes I hate to put the movie on because it’s like, I’ve got shit to do.
