Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig can’t wait to get miniaturized in the first trailer for ‘Downsizing’

Published

on

Following its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival last week, Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for Alexander Payne’s sci-fi comedy Downsizing. The film is perhaps one of the most divisive this awards season, earning mixed reactions from critics and audiences alike, and a 73% on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.

Downsizing follows a Paul (Matt Damon) and Audrey (Kristen Wiig), a couple who, in an attempt to abandon their stressed lives in Omaha, decide to shrink themselves and move to a new downsized community when Norwegian scientists discover how to shrink humans to five inches tall and propose a 200-year global transition from big to small. However, the couple’s choice triggers life-changing adventures, that could be for better or worse.

With a star-studded cast that also includes Christoph Waltz and Hong Chau, it’s a bit hard to not get at least a little excited for Payne’s latest effort, though, upon viewing this trailer and hearing some mixed reactions from my peers on the ground at TIFF, I’m staying cautiously optimistic about this one until it hits theaters on December 22, 2017.

Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams solve a murder mystery in the first ‘Game Night’ trailer

Published

on

The first trailer for New Line’s action-comedy Game Night starring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams has arrived and, while the trailer may have shown one too many spoilers over the course of its two-minute and thirty-second runtime, this looks like one stupid comedy we can get behind.

Game Night follows Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets taken to a whole new level when Max’s brother Brooks arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. When Brooks gets kidnapped, though, the players think it’s all part of the game, but they soon realize that this “game” is not what it seems to be.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who co-wrote Spider-Man: Homecoming, directed Game Night from a script written by Mark Perez. The film features a star-studded cast that also includes Billy Magnussen, Sharon Hogan, Lamorne Morris, Kylie Bunbury, Jesse Plemons, Danny Huston, Michael C. Hall, and Kyle Chandler.

We’ll find out if Bateman and McAdams are able to crack the case when Game Night opens in theaters on March 2, 2018.

‘The Post’ trailer finds Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep exposing a massive government cover-up

Published

on

20th Century Fox has released the highly anticipated first trailer for Steven Spielberg’s upcoming drama The Post. The film follows the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Meryl Streep) and Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) as they race to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. presidents.

According to a recent report from IndieWire, Spielberg recently finished putting the final touches on The Post and will complete the final sound mix with composer John Williams’ score next week. The studio is expected to begin screening the film for press no later than the end of the month in order to meet voting deadlines for many of the critics’ groups.

Written by Liz Hannah and Josh Singer, the star-studded cast of The Post also features Bradley Whitford, Carrie Coon, Tracy Letts, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bob Odenkirk, Alison Brie, Zach Woods, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, and Jesse Plemons. Spielberg produced the film along with Amy Pascal and Kristie Macosko Krieger.

The Post will open in theaters on December 22, 2017. What did you think of the first trailer for Spielberg’s latest film? Will it truly dominate the forthcoming awards season? Let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment down below.

Annapurna mounts awards campaign for Kathryn Bigelow’s ‘Detroit’ with powerful new trailer

Published

on

Kathryn Bigelow’s dramatic-thriller Detroit flew under the radar when it first opened in theaters back in August despite being a timely look at the growing political and social unrest that led to the 1967 Detroit riots. However, in hopes of having better luck the second time around, Annapurna Pictures is looking to give Detroit a limited theatrical re-release that will begin on December 1.

According to Deadline, the Detroit re-release will take place in 20-25 screens in select markets such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Palm Springs, Maui, and Aspen. Given how weirdly unpredictable this year’s awards season seems, a “For Your Consideration” campaign for Detroit may very well work to help build voter enthusiasm around the film.

“This movie creates empathy that can spark dialogue that will, hopefully, lead to healing and change. This country needs that now more than ever,” Annapurna Pictures president Mark Weinstock told Deadline in a statement. “The events in Charlottesville, Virginia, happened after our movie came out. The world has changed since August; the mood is different. The film is not only important – it’s even more relevant. People really consider this movie an emotional experience.”

On Saturday, the studio also debuted a powerful new trailer for Detroit and it offers what is perhaps our best look at Bigelow’s new film which stars John Boyega, Anthony Mackie, Jon Krasinski, Will Poulter, Algee Smith, Jason Mitchell, Hannah Murray, and Kaitlyn Denver. You can check out the trailer above.
