A new batch of clips have arrived online for ‘Whiplash,’ which is led by Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons. Directed and written by Damien Chazelle (Guy And Madeline On A Park Bench), ‘Whiplash’ is adapted from a short film that won Sundance’s jury award for fiction in 2013 (also written and directed by Chazelle). Earlier this year the film won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at Sundance.
This first trailer has landed online from ‘Top Five,’ which is written by, directed by and stars Chris Rock. The comedy film sparked a major bidding war in September after premiering at the Toronto Film Festival to rave reviews. Paramount Pictures eventually picked up the project for a whopping $12.5 million and will release ‘Top Five’ on December 12th in the US and January 16th in the UK.
In ‘Top Five,’ Chris Rock plays Andre Allen, a successful comedian and movie star whose work was recently ravaged by a New York Times critic. His fiancée (Gabrielle Union) wants him to help her with her reality show while his agent (Kevin Hart) just wants him to make his next blockbuster. Instead, he teams with a journalist (Rosario Dawson) to make a serious documentary about the Haitian revolution. The likes of JB Smoove, Tracy Morgan, Cedric the Entertainer, Jerry Seinfeld, Adam Sandler, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd, DMX, Jay Pharoah, Anders Holm and Michael Che also star.
