The plot for Careful What You Wish For seems formulaic, but it’s got Nick Jonas and shirtless I might add. That alone piques my interest. Jonas plays a young man who has an affair with his married next-door neighbor. Dermot Mulroney and Isabel Lucas play the “happy” couple. Everything then spirals out of control when Mulroney turns out dead. Clearly, Nick will be framed and a prime suspect for the crime.
The official trailer is set to drop soon, but producers put together a short teaser purely highlighting Nick. Definitely a smart move given all of his adoring fans. Careful What You Wish For marks the Jonas brother’s feature-film debut. Gotta give him props for going with an edgier thriller than a movie where he can rely on his singing and dancing. Check out the short and sweet teaser below.
As each teaser for Nymphomaniac is released, the more graphic they’re getting. Definitely proceed with caution if you’re at work reading this.
In the latest promo, we see Shia Labeouf getting down and dirty with co-star Stacy Martin. The two engage in some steamy action. If the action looks real, it sorta is. Here’s the description on the official YouTube video explaining the unsimulated sex.
“We shot the actors pretending to have sex and then had the body doubles who really did have sex, and in post we will digital impose the two,” producer Louise Vesth said in an interview with THR earlier this year. “So above the waist it will be the star, and the below the waist it will be the doubles.” – Official YouTube Description
Due to violating the streaming video’s policy, the Nymphomaniac teaser was removed. Luckily, the teaser popped up on Vimeo. Check it out below.
Side note: I wonder if the clip’s title, “Chapter 5: The Little Organ School,” is a joke regarding someone’s naughty bits. Just saying ;
Can someone say Stockholm syndrome? Kate Winslet has a major case of it in her upcoming film Labor Day. To be fair, if Josh Brolin had me tied up, I don’t think I’d be complaining either ;)
Based on a novel by Joyce Maynard, the film chronicles the events of a long Labor Day weekend. Henry Wheeler (Gattlin Griffith) is a 13-year-old who takes care of his reclusive mother Adele (Kate Winslet). When the two encounter an escaped convict named Frank Chambers (Josh Brolin), he forces them to bring him into their home.
After they realize he means them no harm, they begin to let there guard down. Truth be told, I found myself rooting for Brolin and Winslet to hook up and that was only after a two minute trailer. I can’t even imagine how I’ll feel watching the entire thing. This looks pretty dang good and it’s not just because I’m obsessed with Winslet either.
Labor Day premiered at the Telluride Film Festival on August 29, 2013. It’ll have a limited release on December 25, and will open wide in January 2014. Tobey Maguire also stars in the film. He plays the grown up version of Henry Wheeler. Check out the trailer below.
For those who wanted something more upbeat than the previous gay movie (Free Fall) I featured, this one should be more up your alley. The Perfect Wedding is the story of Paul Fowler (Eric Aragon) and Gavin Greene (Jason T. Gaffney), two young gay men who meet and fall in love over the Christmas holidays. The proposal, the intimate wedding, and Paul and Gavin’s ultimate connection are touching scenes in a warm and funny story about a very real, modern American family.
Gavin (super-cute Jason T. Gaffney, Jolly) and Paul (drop-dead handsome Eric Aragon, The Interview), two young gay men, meet and fall in love over a holiday weekend where family and friends are planning the wedding of Paul’s sister. The problem is, Gavin is posing as the boyfriend of Paul’s ex and the two find themselves in a classic comic quandary as they try to ignore their feelings.
First time feature film director Scott Gabriel reveals the screenplay was inspired by The Cosby Show. That classic sitcom entertained without relying on or perpetuating stereotypes. The writing team took a similar approach by not following many other GLBTQ movies that used closeted characters as a source of humor, or were angsty coming-out stories. There are no stereotypes. The humor comes from the situations the two romantic leads find themselves in and how they face those obstacles, rather than relying on gay cliches. Check out the trailer below.
After teasing us last week, Marvel finally shelled out the goods. At long last, the first full-length movie trailer for the highly anticipated sequel-prequel is here. And it’s everything I’d hope it would be.
The beloved characters from the original X-Men film trilogy join forces with their younger selves in an epic battle that must change the past– to save their future. Watching Halle Berry, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Anna Paquin and Ian McKellan in the same film is going to be phenomenal. To boot, several new faces join the franchise including Booboo Stewart (Warpath), Adan Canto (Sunspot), Fan Bingbing (Blink), Evan Peters (Quicksilver) and Lucas Till (Havok). Check out the X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer below.
The first Avenger is back. Marvel Comics just unleashed the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Chris Evans and his bulging biceps return for a second go round as the titular superhero. This time he’s joined by Scarlet Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Redford and Sebastian Stan who returns as the Winter Soldier. We also see the first glimpse of Anthony Mackie as the Falcon.
The sequel takes place after Steve Rogers helped save New York City in The Avengers. He’s now living in Washington, DC trying to adjust to modern life after being unearthed from a 70-year icy sleep. I know I’d be cranky ;)
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, The Winter Soldier also stars Emily VanCamp, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo and Hayley Atwell. It comes out April 4, 2014. I wasn’t completely in love with the first film, but this one looks really good. Check out the spankin’ new trailer below.
Ron Burgunday and his Channel 4 news team leave San Diego for the Big Apple in the highly-anticipated sequel. Being as sheltered as they are, the boys encounter and experience new things. Naturally, when they come across the gay anchor at GNN, they can’t quite tell the difference between homosexuals and vampires. It’s silly, ridiculous and exactly what you’d expect (and want) from Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
Along with the Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner and Christina Applegate reprise their roles. In addition, the film has rounded up practically everyone in Hollywood for either a cameo or small speaking role. Megan Good, Kristen Wiig, Harrison Ford, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, John C.Reilly, Jim Carrey, Kanye West, Sacha Baron Cohen, Liam Neeson and Kirsten Dunst are just a few of the names you’ll see in the sequel. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues premieres worldwide on December 20, 2013. Check out the second trailer below.
Wes Anderson appears to have another winner on his hands. If you love any of the 44-year-old director’s previous works such as The Royal Tenenbaums and Moonrise Kingdom, I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy The Grand Budapest Hotel. Not only is it gorgeously shot, it seems like a fun and entertaining ride. I get the vibe that it’s Wes’ own version of Clue. Love that movie starring Tim Curry.
To say the film boasts a stellar cast would be an understatement. Ralph Fiennes, F. Murray Abraham, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Murray and frequent collaborator Owen Wilson are just a few of the names appearing in the film.
The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H (Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa (introducing Tony Revolori), the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. There’s murder, revenge, romance, adventure and naturally Anderson’s quirky signature style of comedy. It hits theaters on March 7th, 2014. Check out the trailer below.
