Otherworldy Trailer: Ryan Gosling’s LostRiver!

lost-river-film-ryan-gosling

Wow! I’ve just seen the trailer for Ryan Gosling’s debut as a filmmaker – he writes and directs – and it is something else entirely: eerie, otherworldly, downright strange. In a good way. Nicolas Winding Refn strange – as opposed to Uwe Boll strange.

It’s called Lost River (formerly How To Catch a Monster) and is described as a ‘dark fairy ale.’ The cast includes Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan, Ian de Caestecker, Matt Smith, Eva Mendes and Ben Mendelsohn. Lost River will be in theaters and on VOD on April 10th. Check out the trailer after the jump.

Inherent Vice: Paul Thomas Anderson’s Psychedelic Mystery Tour!

INHERENT VICE

Inherent Vice is a twisty mystery that fuses old school PI movies with the psychedelia of the late sixties and early seventies. The point of fusion is the lead character, Larry ‘Doc’ Sportello, a private eye who always – at a minimum – half baked (and usually full on stoned) but somehow manages to be more on the ball than anyone else.

New And Yet Oddly Familiar Trailer: Entourage!

Entourage Cast

Warner Bros. has released the first teaser trailer for the film sequel to HBO’s hit comedy series, Entourage.

E, Turtle, Drama and leader Vince are back – along with temper tantrum-throwing agent Ari – with cameos from Mark Wahlberg and Ronda Rousey. But the highlight has to be the trailer-within-a-trailer for Vince’s new movie (from the producers of Medellin and Aquaman!) that gets things started.

Check it out following the jump. Entourage will open on June 5, 2015.

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.

If I Stay is yet another movie based on a Young Adult novel I haven’t read. I’ve heard it’s a more faithful adaptation than most. What it is, is story about a teen cello prodigy who is faced with the biggest decision anyone could ever have to make – whether to live or die.

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole – Variations on Themes by Tolkien and Lucas – But With Owls!

legendsofguardianposter

Zack Snyder takes an aggressive step into the world of family entertainment with Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole – an epic fantasy that blends elements of Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, but with owls. It’s been released in both 2 and 3-D formats, so cost-conscious viewers don’t have to fork out the extra for the 3-D version – but the film is a good time and the 3-D is spectacular.
