Time And All That Trailer: A Ghost Story!

With A Ghost Story, acclaimed director David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies SaintsPete’s Dragon) returns with a singular exploration of legacy, loss, and the essential human longing for meaning and connection.

Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Academy Award-winner Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Academy Award-nominee Rooney Mara), only to find that in his spectral state he has become unstuck in time, forced to watch passively as the life he knew and the woman he loves slowly slip away.

Increasingly unmoored, the ghost embarks on a cosmic journey through memory and history, confronting life’s ineffable questions and the enormity of existence.

A Ghost Story opens on July 17th.

Origin Story Trailer: Pan!

Pan 1-sheet - Peter

We all know the story of Peter Pan – whether it be through J.M. Barrie’s novel or Disney – or at least we think we do. In fact, we know the story of the Darling children’s encounter with Peter Pan. Peter’s origin is something else again – and that’s what addressed in Pan: the story of the orphan boy with a destiny to never grow up.

Starring newcomer Levi Miller as Peter, Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily and Garrett Hedlund as Hook, Pan will be in theaters, in 3D, on July 17, 2015. Check out the first trailer after the jump.

DVD Review: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Rocks The Small Screen!

Dragon Tattoo

When I reviewed David Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo for its theatrical release, I noted that it surprised me because it was as good as the earlier, Swedish version that made Noomi Rapace familiar to an international audience.

When it was released in North America, the Swedish adaptation of the Steig Larssen novel made my Favorite Fifteen list, so I was intrigued to see how the North American version would compare. I certainly didn’t it expect it to match the first one, especially when you consider the powerful performance Noomi Rapace gave as Lisbeth Salander – even with David Fincher directing.

Was I ever surprised by Fincher’s take on the story!
