Teaser Trailer For Jason Reitman’s ‘Men, Women & Children’ – Starring Ansel Elgort, Rosemarie Dewitt, Jennifer Garner…
Paramount Pictures has set loose this first trailer for ‘Men, Women & Children,’ which is from Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Jason Reitman. The film stars Rosemarie Dewitt, Jennifer Garner, Judy Greer, Dean Norris, Adam Sandler, David Denman, Jason Douglas, Dennis Haysbert, Shane Lynch, Will Peltz, J.K. Simmons, Timothée Chalamet, Olivia Crocicchia, Kaitlyn Dever, Katherine Hughes, Elena Kampouris, Travis Tope and Emma Thompson. ‘Men, Women & Children’ is based on Chad Kultgen’s novel of the same name with Reitman directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Erin Cressida Wilson (Secretary, Chloe). The film will have its world premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival and opens on October 3rd in the US. Expect a UK release date shortly.
After premiering at the Berlin Film Festival in February to critical acclaim, Studio Canal have today revealed this first trailer for Yann Demange’s ’71. The thriller centers on a young British soldier (Jack O’Connell) who is accidentally abandoned by his unit following a riot on the streets of Belfast in 1971. Unable to tell friend from foe, and increasingly wary of his own comrades, he must survive the night alone and find his way to safety through a disorientating, alien and deadly landscape.
Paul Anderson, Richard Dormer, Sean Harris, Martin McCann, Charlie Murphy, Sam Reid, Killian Scott, David Wilmot, Jack Lowden and Jim Sturgeon round out the cast. Written by Gregory Burke, ‘71 is Yann Demange’s feature debut after directing TV series including the award-winning ‘Top Boy’ for Channel 4. Recently seen in ‘300: Rise Of An Empire’ and ‘Starred Up,’ Jack O’Connell’s portrayal of World War II hero Louis Zamperini in Angelina Jolie’s ‘Unbroken’ is already generating award season chatter. ’71 opens on October 10th in the UK. Expect word on a US release date shortly.
The main cast for Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s long awaited sequel includes the original ‘Sin City’ cast members: Mickey Rourke as Marv, Jessica Alba as Nancy, Bruce Willis as Hartigan, Rosario Dawson as Gail and Jaime King as Goldie/Wendy. New cast members for the neo-noir crime action thriller include: Eva Green as Ava Lord, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Johnny, Dennis Haysbert as Manute, Christopher Meloni as Mort, Jeremy Piven as Bob, Stacy Keach as Wallenquist, Jamie Chung as Miho, Ray Liotta as Joey, Juno Temple as Sally, Julia Garner as Marcy, and Josh Brolin as Dwight. The film arrives on August 22nd in the US and August 25th in the UK. I’m posting a bunch of interview for this film later this week, so stay tuned!
From Fox Searchlight comes this latest clip from Michael R. Roskam’s (Bullhead) much-anticipated ‘The Drop,’ featuring Tom Hardy and the late, great James Gandolfini. Set for a September 19th release date in the US and a November 14th bow in the UK and Ireland, the film also stars Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, John Ortiz and James Frecheville.
‘The Drop’ focuses on a man (Tom Hardy) who wants to shed his criminal path but somehow gets mixed up in a bad heist and a killing resulting from a lost and contested pit bull. Rapace will play Nadia, a woman who crosses paths with the protagonist when he finds a wounded puppy outside her home. Author Dennis Lehane adapted the film from his own short story that first appeared in ‘Boston Noir.’ Previous Lehane movie adaptations include ‘Mystic River,’ ‘Shutter Island’ and ‘Gone Baby Gone.’
And here’s the news story that’s formed the biggest smile on my face today: During a chat with Edith Bowman on BBC 6 Music for “Screen 6 Special”, Simon Pegg revealed that he’s working on a new film with his long time collaborator and friend Edgar Wright. Given that their “Three Flavours Cornetto” trilogy concluded last year with ‘The World’s End,’ he had the following to saying about this new project.
“Edgar and I were having a conversation the other day about it, and it has a title and everything. We’re kind of into a creative cycle now. We’ve all got different things [going] on and we know we have to get those things done. The coming-together thing is without question on the table and will happen when we can do it.” Simon Pegg continued, “When we said the trilogy was over, it was because that group of films was over. They’re all kind of related with each other and deal with a specific idea. There’s a criteria to those films. The next thing we do won’t do that, it will just be something else. It will happen. We made three films in ten years and hopefully in the next decade we’ll make another three. I really love working with those guys and I wouldn’t ever not want to work with them. It’s not even a question.” Fingers crossed we get some info on this project shortly.
