With an October 17th release in place, IFC Films has unveiled this first trailer for Peter Sattler’s ‘Camp X-Ray.’ In the film, a young woman (Kristen Stewart) joins the military to be part of something bigger than herself and her small town roots, but ends up as a rookie guard at Guantanamo Bay. Her mission is far from black and white, as she is surrounded by hostile jihadists and aggressive male squadmates. When she strikes up an unusual friendship with one of the detainees (‘A Separation’ star Payman Maadi), both of their worlds are forever shifted. The film, with a screenplay by Sattler, also stars Lane Garrison, J.J. Soria and John Carroll Lynch.
First Trailer For ‘Two Night Stand’ – Starring Analeigh Tipton, Miles Teller & Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi
This first trailer has arrived online for ‘Two Night Stand,’ a Miles Teller and Analeigh Tipton-led romantic comedy that marks the directorial debut of Max Nichols. In the film, a no-strings-attached, online hook-up turns into a morning-after disaster for twenty-something New Yorkers Megan (Tipton) and Alec (Teller). When a paralyzing blizzard hits the city trapping them in Alec’s cramped Brooklyn apartment, they are forced to get to know each other far beyond the confines of a typical one-night stand. Opening on September 20th, the likes of Jessica Szohr, Leven Rambin and Scott Mescudi co-star in ‘Two Night Stand.’
Warner Bros. Pictures has released this new batch of clips from the feature adaptation of Gayle Forman’s 2009 novel ’If I Stay.’ From director R.J. Cutler, the dramatic thriller stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Jamie Blackley, Mireille Enos, Joshua Leonard, Liana Liberato, Aisha Hinds, and Stacy Keach. ‘If I Stay’ is the story of the gifted classical musician Mia (Moretz) and her boyfriend, Adam (Blackley), an up and coming indie-rock star. Torn between two paths in life, her art or her relationship, Mia is forced to make an even starker choice between life and death when she is caught in a fatal car accident with her family one snowy morning in Oregon. ‘If I Stay’ opens in theaters on August 22nd in the US and August 29th in the UK.
New Full-Length Trailer For ‘Beyond The Lights’ – Starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Nate Parker & Minnie Driver
BET and Relativity Media have unveiled this theatrical trailer for writer/director Gina Prince-Bythewood’s (The Secret Life of Bees, Love & Basketball) ‘Beyond the Lights.’ Gugu Mbatha-Raw recently said the drama is a chance to explore the darker side of a glamorous industry, “When you are groomed into these shiny music-industry acts from a young age, there are a lot of identity issues…. it’s about the psychological expectations of fame.”
The tale follows a perfectly packaged pop star, played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who’s been groomed for stardom from a young age by her overbearing, opportunistic mother (Minnie Driver). Also starring Nate Parker, Danny Glover, Jordan Belfi, Aml Ameen and Machine Gun Kelly, ‘Beyond the Lights’ opens on November 14th in the US. The-Dream is creating all the original music for film, which will be choreographed by Laurieann Gibson.
While ‘Frank’ opened in the UK and Ireland back in May, the film – which is fantastic I might add – opens in the US on August 15th. Coinciding with the US release, Michael Fassbender, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Domnhall Gleeson and the rest of the Soronprfbs (the band depicted in the film) teamed up to perform “I Love You All” on The Colbert Report. Directed by Lenny Abrahamson and penned by Jon Ronson and Peter Straughan, ‘Frank’ stars Gleeson, Gylenhaal, Scoot McNairy, Carla Azar and Fassbender as the titular character, a brilliant and eccentric musician who wears a giant papier–mache head at all times.
Domhnall Gleeson plays Jon, a wannabe musician who finds himself out of his depth when he joins a maverick pop band led by the enigmatic Frank – a musical genius who hides himself inside a large fake head — and his terrifying sidekick Clara (Maggie Gylenhaal). It is a fictional story loosely inspired by Frank Sidebottom, the persona of cult musician and comedy legend Chris Sievey, as well as other outsider musicians like Daniel Johnston and Captain Beefheart.
Fox Searchlight Pictures has revealed the first trailer for ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,’ which opens on March 6th, 2015.
