This “messaging” clip has arrived online for ‘Two Night Stand,’ a Miles Teller and Analeigh Tipton-led romantic comedy that marks the directorial debut of Max Nichols.

Opening on September 20th, the likes of Jessica Szohr, Leven Rambin and Scott Mescudi co-star in ‘Two Night Stand.’

Lead by ‘Beasts of a Southern Wild’ and ’12 Years a Slave’ star Quvenzhané Wallis in the title role and Jamie Foxx in the role of Benjamin Stacks, an update of the character Daddy Warbucks, ‘Annie’ is a contemporary adaptation of the musical of the same name, which in turn is based upon the 1924 comic strip ‘Little Orphan Annie’ by Harold Gray.

‘The Drop’ is a crime drama from Michaël R. Roskam, the Academy Award-nominated director of ‘Bullhead.’ Based on a screenplay from Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone), ‘The Drop’ follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters – “money drops” – in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood’s past where friends, families, and foes all work together to make a living – no matter the cost. The film, set for September 12th in the US and a November 14th bow in the UK and Ireland, also stars Noomi Rapace, Matthias Schoenaerts, John Ortiz and James Frecheville.
Your character Bob is the emotional center of the film, yet he demonstrates little overt emotion himself – so much of what is going on with him is under the surface. On his best day, Bob is not a terribly articulate guy, which is compounded by the fact that he has pushed everything down deep inside. What was it about Bob that intrigued you and sparked your interest?
Tom Hardy: I’m always fascinated by characters that don’t get the opportunity to speak their voice. I find that the most interesting characters are normally hidden under rocks and pushed into small corners of society where they don’t often have their voice heard. I like to look into characters that don’t normally get looked into. He’s unassuming and therefore underestimated. You never see him coming. The guy’s an Everyman with a big heart and a long story that he would never burden you with, because he prefers silence. He leads an ordinary life. And Michaël R. Roskam is a great bloke and a fantastic director. For an actor, he creates an environment that allows you to develop and facilitate the character and story by encouraging specificity and volition. The best idea always wins with Michaël. He wants to make great films with great characters and he delivers.
