New Trailer for 50/50 Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen
by Jason Barr Posted: August 11th, 2011
A new trailer for director Jonathan Levine’s (The Wackness) dramedy 50/50 is now available online. Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Anjelica Huston, the film is based on screenwriter Will Reiser’s real-life battle with cancer and focuses on the twists, turns, shock, sadness, and comedic relief that he experienced along the way. Although this new cut features some of the same footage found in the film’s first trailer, it does offer a little more in the way of Anna Kendrick’s performance, a fact that I’ll never have any qualms with. Overall, I’ve heard great things about 50/50 and I can’t wait to see it in theaters.
Check out the new trailer after the jump. 50/50 opens on September 30th. ........... http://collider.com/50-50-trailer/108880/
New Trailer for ABDUCTION Starring Taylor Lautner
by Adam Chitwood Posted: August 11th, 2011The second trailer for The Lautner Iden—er—Abduction has hit the web. The film pegs Taylor Lautner as an action hero and centers on a young man who’s out to uncover the truth as to why a baby photo of himself wound up on a missing persons website. While the first trailer focused on telling the story, this one plays much more like a fast-cut TV spot that’s very heavy on the action and light on dialogue. I think Lautner only speaks once. The supporting cast is pretty impressive, but I still have trouble taking Lautner seriously as an action star.
Directed by John Singleton, the film stars Lautner, Lily Collins, Sigourney Weaver, Danny Glover, Alfred Molina, Michael Nyqvist, Maria Bello, and Jason Isaacs. Abduction opens on September 23rd. Hit the jump to watch the trailer.
New Images from Roman Polanski’s CARNAGE and Michael Winterbottom’s TRISHNA
by Matt Goldberg Posted: August 11th, 2011
I don’t remember the last time I posted this many image articles in a single day. This is number five and it’s got new images from Roman Polanski’s Carnage and Michael Winterbottom’s Trishna. The Carnage images are just stars Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Christoph Waltz, and Kate Winslet doing dramatic stare downs at each other and even at the camera. Carnage—which only runs 79 minutes since it plays out in real time—focuses on two sets of parents who come together to settle a schoolyard fight between their kids. As for Trishna, the movie is based on Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the D’Urbervilles but set against an Indian backdrop. I’m sure star Freida Pinto will have more to work with than she did in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
Hit the jump to check out the images. Carnage opens this December and will play at the Venice and New York Film Festivals. Trishna will play at the Toronto International Film Festival.
TIFF 2011: First Images from BUTTER and W.E. [Updated]
by Matt Goldberg Posted: August 11th, 2011If TIFF approves my application, I’ll be making sure I get in to see the satire Butter. The movie is set in the competitive world of butter carving and the story parodies the 2008 Democratic Primary. Jennifer Garner plays an ambitious Midwestern woman whose philandering husband (Ty Burrell) previously won the title. Garner’s character believes the title is her but then she’s challenged by a teenage African-American girl (Yara Shahidi). The outstanding cast also features Hugh Jackman, Olivia Wilde, Kristen Schaal, Rob Corddry, Alicia Silverstone, and Ashley Greene. There’s also the first image from Madonna’s W.E. I don’t much care about that movie.
Hit the jump to check out the W.E. image . The 2011 Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 8 – 18th. [We've removed the Butter image at the request of the studio]

First Images from THE DOUBLE Starring Richard Gere and Topher Grace
by Matt Goldberg Posted: August 11th, 2011Image Entertainment has released the first images from The Double. The flick centers on a former CIA operative (Richard Gere) who’s called out of retirement and must team up with a rookie FBI agent (Topher Grace) when a US senator turns up dead and bearing the distinctive trademark of a Russian assassin known as “Cassius”. I’m always up for a good spy thriller and I tend to think Grace is fantastic in everything. The film also stars Martin Sheen, Stephen Moyer, Odette Yustman, and Stana Katic.
Hit the jump to check out the images along with the official synopsis. The Double opens September 23rd.
