Adam’s Psychological-Mystery Pick: Trance

In: Adam, Movies

I’m honestly running out of original ways to frame the titles of these articles, so thank hell the genres of the movies I review keep blending; I have nearly an infinite amount of combinations to play with! Today, we’re looking at the psycho-mystery entitled Trance (Spring Release 2013). Staring some decent big name-ish actors including the impossibly pretty Rosario Dawson, boy-next-door cute James McAvoy and the maturely European-to-a-tee Vincent Cassel, there’s no lack of talent on the screen… but does the story hold up? Basically, we follow the aftermath of a art heist gone wrong at an auctioneers hall (btw the purloined artwork in question is by my FAVOURITE artist: Fancisco de Goya) as the protagonist played by McAvoy recovers from an amnesiac blow to the head and attempts to remember where he placed the lost painting. Cassel easily plays the playboy, hardass thief who threatens to murder and torture our main character at every turn if he cannot remember the painting’s location while Dawson plays the vixen hypnotherapist who works to coax McAvoy into retracing his steps.

The good: this movie is NOT predictable and you won’t know what’s really happening until the very end so being bored isn’t really an option. The bad: this movie REALLY stretches your belief that it’s something that could happen in real life. Don’t get me wrong, no one turns into a bat or anything, but the layers of deceit seem hard enough for us the relaxed viewer to follow let alone the damaged characters of the movie. Still, it’s totally worth a view. There’s some pretty agro sex scenes and while Cassel is a bit skinny to get my daddy-fetish going, McAvoy is just enough a jerk to make my asshole-engine running! The director is the main pitch of this one as it’s created by Danny Boyle of Slumdog Millionaire, 28 Days Later and Trainspotting fame. The premise is definitely interesting and the action and twists non-stop, so, as long as you have your wits about you and don’t mind a bit of violence, this could be for you.

After several teaser videos, we finally have our first full-length movie trailer for The Canyons. The erotic thriller is a contemporary L.A. noir about the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition, both personally and professionally, among a group of young people in their 20’s and how one chance meeting connected to the past unravels all of their lives, resulting in deceit, paranoia, cruel mind games and ultimately violence. Filmed for only $250,000, the film was picked up by IFC Films and scheduled to hit theaters next month. The neo-noir thriller stars Nolan Gerard Funk, porn star James Deen and none other than Lindsay Lohan.

Speaking of 27-year-old trainwreck, she’s reportedly doing quite well in rehab. With her court-ordered 90 day treatment almost up, doctors at Cliffside Malibu are urging her to extend it by 30 days. Problem is, Lohan has to be in Venice for the film’s premiere next month. Hopefully, she picks her long-term health over a premiere. Fingers crossed that she also follows her doctors’ advice not to live with her mom after her rehab stint is over. Dina is such an enabler. Check out The Canyons trailer below.

Who wouldn’t want a do-over in life? I know I’d change a couple of things if I could. Since time traveling isn’t an option, going through an early mid-life crisis is the next best thing.

Instead of sticking it out in New York, an almost 30-year-old Leigh (Kristen Bell) heads back to her parents’ Connecticut home to hide out. Rather than put her big girl panties on and look to the future, she relives the past, reclaiming her old lifeguard post at the local pool. If that wasn’t enough to revert to her former high school lifestyle, Leigh decides to party til the wee hours of the morning and shacks up with a 16-year-old (David Lambert). COUGAR!!! Someone’s a predator ;)

The Lifeguard competed at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. The Liz W. Garcia-directed indie also features Mamie Gummer, Martin Starr, Alex Shaffer, Joshua Harto and Amy Madigan. It’ll be available on video on demand on July 30, 2013, followed by a limited release on August 30. Check out the trailer below.

I admit, I’ve read and enjoyed a couple Jane Austen novels, but I’m not even remotely in the same league as Keri Russell. In Austenland, her character Jane Hayes has a life-consuming affection for all things Austen, particularly Pride and Prejudice‘s Mr. Darcy. Her obsession takes her to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women. She dresses up in period dress hoping to find her own Mr. Darcy.

Austenland first premiered at Sundance and was acquired for more than $4 million by Sony Pictures Classics. It’s based on Shannon Hale’s 2007 novel and produced by Twilight scribe Stephenie Meyer. Jerusha Hess who’s co-written Nacho Libre and Napoleon Dynamite makes her directorial debut. The romantic comedy also stars Jennifer Coolidge, Bret McKenzie and Jane Seymour. Check out the trailer below. Austenland opens to limited release on August 16th.

Watch Amanda Seyfried In First Lovelace Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies

Amanda Seyfried has covered quite a few film genres since starting her motion picture career playing a mouse (DUH) in Mean Girls. The 27-year-old actress has appeared in two beloved musicals (Mamma Mia & Les Miserables), starred in a fairytale adaptation (Red Riding Hood), romance dramas (Dear John) and futuristic thrillers (In Time). Now she’s dabbling in the world of porn. The first trailer for her turn as the infamous porn star Linda Lovelace has debuted.

Lovelace first premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. It’s scheduled to hit theaters in limited release on August 9. The biographical film will cover the Deep Throat actress’ life from when she was 20 to 32-years-old. Watch as Linda Boreman becomes the symbol of sexual freedom and uninhibited hedonism in the 70s and later transforms into an outspoken anti-porn activist a decade after that film made her a star.

Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, Lovelace boasts an impressive cast including Peter Sarsgaard, Hank Azaria, Wes Bentley, Adam Brody, Bobby Cannavale, James Franco, Debi Mazar, Chris Noth, Robert Patrick, Eric Roberts, Chloe Sevigny, Sharon Stone, and Juno Temple. Sarah Jessica Parker was also supposed to be in the film, but her part was cut out during the final editing process. Check out the trailer below.

His past two comedies, The Watch and The Internship, didn’t exactly set the box office on fire. I have a feeling that’s about to change for Vince Vaughn. The 43-year-old’s upcoming comedy not only looks hilarious but touching as well.

In The Delivery Man, David Wozniak’s (Vaughn) sperm donation proved very popular due to an administrative error. As a result, he’s fathered 533 children in the past two decades. When his kids sue to reveal his identity, the unexpected dad must decide whether to go public. A relative slacker with no career goals, Wozniak now discovers his purpose in life. He seeks out each child becoming a guardian angel of sorts for them without revealing his true identity.

The film is a remake of a 2011 French-Canadian film Starbuck. During production, the working title for Vaughn’s version had the same name before changing to The Delivery Man. Starbuck isn’t completely wiped from the US version, Vaughn’s alias at the sperm bank is “Starbuck.” Check out the trailer below. Already, it’s more promising than The Watch and The Internship combined.

If the promise of Mary J. Blige wearing a platinum blond fro descending from the sky while wearing baby blue wings isn’t enough to entice people to the theaters, nothing will. That top right image is everything. Blige along with Jennifer Hudson star in a contemporary adaptation of Langston Hughes’ celebrated 1961 play, Black Nativity. The film is scheduled to hit theaters this holiday season in November.

I love me some J-Hud, but let’s face it. The 31-year-old Oscar winner shines brightest when her acting roles involve some singing. When left simply just to act, she’s a bit awkward, don’t you think? Thankfully, the Kasi Lemmons-directed musical features Hudson doing what she does best- getting down with her gospel bad self. She stars as a struggling mother living in Baltimore who sends her son to live with his grandparents played by Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett in Harlem. The coming-of-age story also stars rapper Nas, Tyrese Gibson, Nasir Jones and Jacob Latimore. Check out the teaser trailer below.

For the longest time, there haven’t been any witnesses, but when 17-year-old Cindy Paulson manages to escape, she thinks it’s over and that he’ll now go to jail.
