Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy star in director Seth Gordan’s (Horrible Bosses) Identity Thief which has McCarthy stealing Bateman’s identity to live a lavish life of bubble baths and recliners. He travels across the country to track her down and physical comedy ensues.
The talent here is in top form, but will the laughs still pay off in the theater after another couple of trailers and TV spots? I’d stay away from anymore laugh spoilers if you want to enjoy this one.
The film also stars Jon Favreau, Amanda Peet, John Cho, Robert Patrick, and Eric Stonestreet. Identity Thief opens February 8, 2013.
Watch the trailer below:
Here is the first trailer for the baseball drama Trouble with the Curve starring Clint Eastwood; so wasn’t he supposed to stop after Gran Torino? What a champ. He stars as an aging baseball scout who goes on one last recruiting trip with this daughter (Amy Adams).
I can’t say any strong writing is being shown off here, weak for Eastwood who certainly knows drama (Million Dollar Baby). He didn’t directed or write this feature, so I guess he’s just along for the ride, no matter how movie of the week it feels. The film also stars John Goodman, Matthew Lillard, Matt Bush, Robert Patrick and Scott Eastwood.
The film opens on September 28th, watch the trailer below:
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 the first trailer for Ruben Fleischer‘s (Zombieland) Gangster Squad starring everyone cool in Hollywood. The trailer is awesome, but that’s easy for me to say because I love watching anything that takes us back to the 1940s. Sean Penn is gangster Mickey Cohen, Josh Brolin is the head of the LA task force trying to bring him down.
The film stars Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, Emma Stone, Nick Nolte, Michael Peña, Anthony Mackie, and Giovanni Ribisi. Gangster Squad opens this year.
Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and–if he has his way–every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop…except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart. “The Gangster Squad” is a colorful retelling of events surrounding the LAPD’s efforts to take back their nascent city from one of the most dangerous mafia bosses of all time.
