Every now and then on Homorazzi, we post a “Who’d You Rather” where you have to decide between two hot guys. That’s just a fun, carefree game and an excuse to check out some sexy photos of some hot guys. In a new movie trailer for a film called Would You Rather, it’s a very different story.
In Would You Rather, Brittany Snow (Pitch Perfect, Prom Night) plays a concerned sister named Iris that is desperate to help her ailing brother Raleigh (Logan Miller). She meets with a man who says that he can help her and invites her to a dinner party that he’s hosting at his house. “There’ll be there guests there. People who just haven’t received a fair shake in life. The evening will culminate with… a game.” Iris responds, “A contest?” If Iris competes and wins in a game, his charitable foundation will pay for Raleigh’s treatment and find him a bone marrow donor.
This is just no ordinary game. It’s a deadly game and things get crazy really fast with the host, a sadistic aristocrat played by Jeffrey Combs, forces the guests to choose between some pretty awful alternatives. It looks pretty intense and will likely have you on the edge of your seats and clinging to the person beside you. Watch the trailer below.
With January wrapping up in a matter of days, it’s a great time to start talking about some of the must-see movies that are coming out in February. I’ve selected five films that I want to see and together they make up a good mix of genres. You’re bound to see you one that interests you!
Probably out of all five of them, the one that I want to see most is Identity Thief, starring Melissa McCarthy and Jason Batemen. I seriously can’t get enough of McCarthy’s movies and since she’s one of two leads in this one, it’s at the top of my list. Considering all the buzz and promotion for the film, my prediction is that the weekend it opens in theaters it will be at the top of the box office. If you haven’t seen the trailer for this one, I’ve included it below along with brief overviews and trailers for the other four films on my list.
Check out five movies worth checking out this February below. I’ve also included the release dates for each movie so you can pencil in your movie dates for the month ;)
The trailer for a drama film called Inside Llewyn Davis has just come out, written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen and starring some pretty cool people.
Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, and John Goodman are just a few of the familiar faces in the movie. Inside Llewn Davis tells the story of a singer-songwriter who navigates New York’s folk music scene in the 1960s and is loosely based on Dave Van Ronk‘s posthumously published memoir titled The Mayor of MacDougal Street. Isaac plays Llewyn Davis and gets a hard time from people along the way who don’t take him seriously. Mulligan’s character gives him a pretty harsh lecture on safe sex, saying “I should have had you wear double condoms, or we shouldn’t of done it in the first place. But if you ever do it again (which as a favor to women everyone you should not) but if you do, you should be wearing condom on condom and then wrap it in electrical tape.” Ouch!
The trailer has Bob Dylan’s “Farewell” song playing in the background. Check out the trailer below. The release date hasn’t been announced as of yet.
The trailer for an upcoming political action thriller called Olympus Has Fallen and it looks so good! There are so many good actors in it as well.
In the film, terrorists have taken over the White House and are holding the President (Aaron Eckhart) hostage, with a lone Secret Service agent (Gerard Butler) trying to save the day. When the President is held hostage, leave it to Morgan Freeman to be the acting President. LOL. Even when he’s not the president, he becomes the acting president… I love it. I kind of get a 24 vibe from it where in Season 7 the White House was invaded and President Taylor was taken hostage. That’s find with me, I loved 24 and in particular, that season!
As mentioned, there are so many great actors in this movie. In addition to those already mentioned, the film also has Ashley Judd (the First Lady), Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott, and Melissa Leo. The film comes out on March 22. Check out the trailer below!
This weekend, a new thriller called The East premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and today, the first trailer was released. The film stars Brit Marling, Alexander Skarsgård and Ellen Page and looks pretty intense.
In the movie, Marling plays an operative named Sarah that works for an elite private intelligence firm. She goes undercover to infiltrate a mysterious anarchist cult that is attacking major corporations. As she gets more familiar with The East and its members (including Izzy, played by Ellen Page), she finds her loyalty tested as her feelings grow for the group’s charismatic leader (Skarsgård). As a sidenote, this is the second cult-like film that Marling has starred in. She played Maggie in Sound of My Voice which I watched earlier this year. Also a really good movie.
The release date for the film hasn’t been announced yet but I’m definitely planning on watching this one. Watch the creepy trailer below.
Dennis Quaid and Zac Efron play father and son in an upcoming drama called At Any Price and the movie trailer has just been released. The film is all about fathers & sons, farming, race car driving and everything in between.
The film was directed by Ramin Bahrani (Chop Shop, Goodbye Solo) and has Efron playing a rebellious son who wants to focus on race car driving instead of farming, despite his father’s wishes. As the story develops, his father’s farm falls under investigation and their family is at risk of losing everything. The film also stars Kim Dickens as Quaid’s wife and Heather Graham as Efron’s love interest.
It looks really good and has received a lot of recognition at festivals already. Zac Efron has definitely successfully departed from his goodie two shoed High School Musical boy and into a serious & sexy leading man in some big name dramatic films. This movie had me at Zac Efron. Watch the trailer below! The film hits theaters later this year.
A new “found footage” thriller called Upper or The Upper Footage (the name is not clear) is being released at select screenings, but is seeking the support of audiences to get the film in more cities (similar to what Paranormal Activity did for the first film). As with most found footage films, the details are very vague (to make it seem more real) and Quentin Tarantino is believed to be the one who purchased the footage to make into a film (slash obviously they mean he’s the actual director but don’t want to reveal that yet).
The premise is of Upper is that it is an edited version of 393 minutes of recovered footage documenting a young girl’s tragic overdose death and subsequent cover up. Here are the details that have been revealed about the story: “On the night of December 28th, 2009 a young girl by the name of Jackie was seen leaving a popular NYC sports bar with a group of affluent socialites. It was the last time she was seen alive. Due to the affluence of those involved the story did not hit the media until 2010 when an extortionist acquired the footage and began leaking it online causing a media feeding frenzy. A bidding war ensued whereas Quentin Tarantino allegedly purchased the footage.”
Watch the creepy trailer below and let me know what you think.
After a little teaser clip was released a while back, we got our first look at an upcoming movie called Spring Breakers hitting theaters on March 6. Now, the first full trailer has come out and if you still had any of that “good girl image” in your mind when you thought of Vanessa Hudgens or Selena Gomez, they’re gonna change your mind with this edgy flick.
Faith (Selena Gomez), Candy (Vanessa Hudgens), Brit (Ashley Benson), and Cotty (Rachel Korine) have been besties since grade school. They live together in a college dorm and want to go on an adventure and hit Florida for Spring Break. In order to be able to make that happen, they somehow decide to rob a restaurant to get the funds they need. While on their vacay, they get busted at a party for drugs, and thrown in jail. Alien (James Franco), a drug and arms dealer, bails them out to do some dirty work. As you can imagine, they can only get themselves into more trouble.
The movie looks really good and I think the roles are interesting and smart for all of the actors involved. The only person not shown in the trailer that I wanted to see was Heather Morris. As a side note, 2013 is a big year for Franco, with (in addition to Spring Breakers) has the following highly anticipated films coming out: Interior. Leather Bar, Oz: The Great and Powerful, Lovelace, The Iceman, and This Is The End. Check out the trailer for Spring Breakers below.
