From Yahoo! Movies comes this new trailer for the engaging and stunningly beautiful ‘Tracks.’ This adventure drama stars Mia Wasikowska and Adam Driver, is directed by John Curran (The Painted Veil, We Don’t Live Here Anymore), and the cinematography is by Mandy Walker. An adaptation of Robyn Davidson’s memoir of the same name, ‘Tracks’ chronicles the author’s (Wasikowska) nine-month journey on camels across the Australian desert. In 1977, Davidson traveled from Alice Springs across 2,700 kilometres (1,700 miles) of Australian deserts to the Indian Ocean with her dog and four camels. National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan (Driver) documents her journey. ‘Tracks’ will be released in cinemas on April 25th.
TRACKS tells the incredible true story of Robyn Davidson (Mia Wasikowska), a young woman who in 1977 undertook a perilous solo trek across 1,700 miles of stunning Australian outback. Abandoning city life, Robyn arrives in Alice Springs and declares her ambition to cross the desert to the Indian Ocean to the amusement of the locals. However after months of camping out and working on a camel farm people begin to take her seriously. A chance meeting with National Geographic photographer Rick Smoland (Adam Driver) provides her with the necessary financing for her expedition under the condition that he be allowed to photograph parts of her journey for the magazine. With only her dog and four unpredictable camels for company, she embarks on an inspiring and life changing journey of self-discovery.

Their subject: an alluring, but dangerously disturbed young woman (Olivia Cooke of Bates Motel). Their quest: to explore the dark energy that her damaged psyche might manifest. As the experiment unravels along with their sanity, the rogue PHD students are soon confronted with a terrifying reality: they have triggered an unspeakable force with a power beyond all explanation. Inspired by true events, The Quiet Ones is directed by John Pogue from a screenplay by Craig Rosenberg and Oren Moverman and John Pogue, and based on a screenplay by Tom de Ville.

UK Trailer For ‘Half Of A Yellow Sun’ – Starring Thandie Newton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anika Noni Rose & John Boyega
Soda Pictures has unveiled the UK trailer for ’Half of A Yellow Sun,’ the feature adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s acclaimed novel of the same name. For me, ’Half of A Yellow Sun’ is one the most compelling novels of the last decade (her latest novel ‘Americanah’ is fantastic too!). The Orange Prize-winning story follows the intertwining lives of several characters before and during the Nigerian-Biafran War of 1967-1970. The story is told through three different points of view: Ugwu, a thirteen-year-old boy from a small village who becomes a houseboy for a university professor full of revolutionary zeal; Olanna, the warm, progressive and beautiful daughter of well-to-do city-dwellers; and Richard, a white ex-patriot originally from England, who falls in love with Olanna’s twin sister.
Thandie Newton takes on the role of Olanna, with Anika Noni Rose as her sister Kainene. Chiwetel Ejiofor plays the role of revolutionary professor Odenigbo, with John Boyega as his houseboy Ugwu. Joseph Mawle plays the English writer Richard. Set to arrive in the UK on April 11th, ’Half of A Yellow Sun’ is adapted for the screen by Nigerian theatre director, playwright and novelist Biyi Bandele. The official synopsis for Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel can be read below the trailer. Expect a US release date for the film shortly.
