First Trailer For Jon Stewart’s Directorial Debut ‘Rosewater’ – Starring Gael Garcia Bernal As Maziar Bahari
Open Road Films has unveiled this first trailer for ‘Rosewater,’ Jon Stewart’s much anticipated feature directorial debut. Stewart penned the script, which is adapted from Maziar Bahari’s 2011 book ‘Then They Came For Me: A Family’s Story of Love, Captivity and Survival,’ which he co-wrote with Aimee Molloy. Gael Garcia Bernal (Amores Perros, The Motorcycle Diaries) is playing Bahari.
‘Rosewater’ follows Maziar Bahari, a BBC journalist who leaves his pregnant fiancé behind in London while he travels to Iran to spend a week covering the country’s 2009 presidential elections. Bahari was soon arrested by Revolutionary Guard police, and he winds up spending 118 days in a notorious Iranian prison where he is brutally interrogated by a man whose defining characteristic is the smell of rosewater. In a twist of fate, Bahari’s appearance on ‘The Daily Show’ was used against him when he was accused of being a spy. Stewart and ‘The Daily Show’ covered Bahari’s saga nightly and had the journalist appear on the show to talk about his ordeal once he was released from prison.
From Lionsgate comes this new UK poster and trailer for the fantasy/thriller ‘Horns.’ Directed by Alexandre Aja (Piranha 3D, High Tension) and based on Joe Hill’s popular novel of the same name, ‘Horns’ follows Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe), the number one suspect for the violent rape and murder of his longtime girlfriend (Juno Temple). Hungover from a night of hard drinking, Ig awakens one morning to find horns starting to grow from his own head and soon realizes their power drives people to confess their sins and give in to their most selfish and unspeakable impulses – an effective tool in his quest to discover the true circumstances of his late girlfriend’s tragedy and for exacting revenge on her killer.

Set for January 30th in the UK (expect a US date shortly), the film is set in an unnamed city where teenagers Raphael, Gordo and Rat spend their time picking through litter in the hope of finding useful waste. One day they discover a leather bag whose contents will bring them into conflict with the brutal local police force as they find themselves unlikely whistleblowers in a city rife with corruption. Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen, Wagner Moura, Selton Mello, Rickson Tevez, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein star.
When two trash-picking boys from Rio’s slums find a wallet in amongst the daily detritus of their local dump, little do they imagine that their lives are about to change forever. But when the local police show up, offering a handsome reward for the wallet’s return, the boys, Rafael (Rickson Tevez) and Gardo (Luis Eduardo), realise that what they’ve found must be important. Teaming up with their friend Rato (Gabriel Weinstein), the trio begins an extraordinary adventure as they try to hang onto the wallet, evade the police, and uncover the secrets it contains.
