For the most part, David Sedaris’ work has remained largely adaptation-free… that is until now. C.O.G. is a movie based on an essay in “Naked” about his time cutting stones into rocks in Oregon. The film written and directed by Kyle Patrick Alvarez premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival to solid reviews. Based on the trailer, it looks like a fun, witty, eloquent and heartwarming film. Everything you would expect from Sedaris’ work.

Stepping in to play Sedaris stand-in Samuel is Glee‘s Jonathan Groff. Samuel is a cocky young man who travels to Oregon to work on an apple farm. Out of his element, he finds his lifestyle and notions being picked apart by everyone who crosses his path. The film also stars Troian Bellisario, Dale Dickey, Denis O’Hare, Dean Stockwell, and Casey Wilson. Check out the trailer below.

Relive 80s Punk & New Wave In CBGB Movie Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies, Music

What Studio 54 is to disco, CBGB is to new wave and punk. Considering its original intention to showcase country, bluegrass and blues, it’s road to becoming a New York institution is somewhat surprising. It’s arguably one of the most influential nightspots ever. Mostly for being the birthplace of iconic musical acts including the Ramones, Blondie, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts and Talking Heads to name a few.

The trailer for CBGB brings the famed music venue to the big screen for a second act. It’s filled with rock and roll throwbacks. Playing the role of Hilly Kristal, the founder of the club, is Alan Rickman. Joining him in the ensemble cast are Malin Akerman, Rupert Grint, Justin Bartha, Ashley Greene, Johnny Galecki, Donal Logue, Freddy Rodriguez and Stana Katic. CBGB hits theaters on October 11. Check out the trailer below.

Official Synopsis

CBGB follows the story of Hilly Kristal’s New York club from its origins as Country, Bluegrass and Blues (CBGB) to what it ultimately became: the birthplace of underground rock ‘n roll and punk. Kristal, a fan of Country and Bluegrass dreamed of having a club in the lower Eastside that catered to that kind of music, when he had difficulty booking those bands he turned to other kinds of rock music. Hilly had one demand of the acts he booked, they could only play their own original music. No top 40’s, no covers. It was the credo he lived by, support the artist at whatever the cost.

The last time Joaquin Phoenix teamed up with Amy Adams, the two scored Academy Award nominations. Will their latest collaboration yield the same results as Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master? Most probably not for Adams, but Phoenix stands a good chance. He’s absolutely captivating and endearing in the newly-released trailer for Her. I can only imagine how brilliant he is in the entire film.

Directed by Spike Jonze, Phoenix’s character Theodore is a socially recluse man who falls in love with an artificially intelligent operating system named Samantha voiced by Scarlett Johansson. Imagine Apple’s Siri but sexier and actually understands what you’re asking her. Even though, we only ever hear Johansson’s voice, I have a feeling she’ll turn in a fantastic performance.

Also appearing in the film are Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde and Chris Pratt. It’s scheduled to hit theaters on November 20. If the film is remotely half as good as Jonze’s other films (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation and Where the Wild Things Are), Her stands a good shot of picking up awards at the end of the year. Watch the engaging clip below.

Thor: The Dark World Premieres Second Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies

Typically the first movie trailer for a highly-anticipated movie is all glitz and glamor, rarely revealing much of the plot. With the second clip, a clearer picture and deeper sense of the plot is given. That’s exactly the case for the brand new trailer for Thor: The Dark World which just premiered on YouTube for their Geek Week.

When I first learned that Kenneth Branagh declined to return to the director’s chair, I was a tad worried. With his Shakespearean background, Branagh gave what could’ve been a cheesy superhero film a dramatic touch of class and sophistication. With Game of ThronesAlan Taylor now at the helm, there’s a sense of grit not found in Branagh’s film. I can’t wait to see the final product.

Check out the new trailer below which features more of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Jane (Natalie Portman). Speaking of those two, Portman gives Hiddleston a bitch slap for New York. Presumably for the destruction the Big Apple experienced in The Avengers flick due to Loki’s antics.

Official Synopsis

Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s Thor and Marvel’s The Avengers, Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

The first teaser for Diana just featured Naomi Watts pretty much in slow motion recreating some of the titular princess’ most notable moments. It was a collection of images set to music. The newly-dropped international trailer finally shows Watts’ acting chops, delivering some actual dialogue. Does the Aussie actress pull off playing the “People’s Princess“? Based on the trailer, not only does she kinda resemble Diana but she also captures her essence.

Obviously, there have been other films about the “people’s princess.” This one stands out due to its focus on her relationships with heart surgeon Dr. Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews) and Dodi Fayed (Cas Anvar). Khan was allegedly her lover she used to smuggle into Kensington Palace in the trunk of her butler’s car. Fayed as you all know was her boyfriend she died with that fateful night in Paris in 1997.

Oliver Hirschbiegel directs the film and will premiere in the UK on September 5. It will arrive in North American theaters after that with no specific date solidified just yet. I fully expect this to be a scandalous (somewhat classy) biopic. Check out the trailer below.

Love Julianne Hough, the Dancing With The Stars professional. The actress… not so much. That might all change with her upcoming film.

Diablo Cody who wrote Juno and Young Adult, not only penned Paradise but also makes her directorial debut. Hough plays a woman named Lamb (stupid name) who survives a plane crash and begins to question life and her faith. Naturally, she rebels and heads off to Las Vegas to experience all the sinful things the city has to offer.

Not only will Cody’s voice allow Hough to shine, but the stable of strong actors co-starring with her will inevitably up her game. Playing her parents are Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) and Holly Hunter (The Piano). Helping to corrupt Hough in Sin City are Russell Brand and Octavia Spencer. The latter has cracked me up for years and have no doubt she’ll provide most of the laughs in this flick. Check out the trailer below. Paradise hits theaters on October 18, 2013.

New Machete Kills Trailer Shows More Lady Gaga

In: Donovan, Movies

The first Machete Kills trailer showed off Sofia Vergara’s killer tits (literally). That armed bustier of hers is extremely lethal. In the new clip, Vergara’s Double Ds are still packing heat, but Lady Gaga gets more screen time. She plays a gun-wielding character named La Chameleón. Joining her in the eclectic cast are Michelle Rodriguez, Antonio Banderas, Jessica Alba, Amber Heard, Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen who’s billed as Carlos Estevez in the film. Someone’s trying to get in touch with his Hispanic roots.

Danny Trejo returns as ex-Federal agent Machete, who is recruited by the President of the United States (Charlie Sheen) for a mission which would be impossible for any mortal man – he must take down a madman revolutionary and an eccentric billionaire arms dealer (Mel Gibson) who has hatched a plan to spread war across the planet.

If you thought the first trailer was ridiculous, this new one is even more out there. I can’t wait. I’m always down for a good trashy exploitation flick. Check out the film’s second official trailer below. Machete Kills hits theaters on September 13, 2013.
