Trailer – Margaret

Category : Trailer

Director: Kenneth Lonergan
Starring: Anna Paquin, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo
Release: September 30th, 2011

Apparently, we are supposed to pretend that Anna Paquin (X-men, True Blood) is in high school. She’s twenty-nine. We are also supposed to pretend that she’s a good actress and can carry an entire film, keeping up with two co-stars that are around ninety times more talented that her. I don’t think so.

Trailer – The Future

Category : Trailer

Director: Miranda July

Starring: Miranda July, Hamish Linklater

Release: July 29th, 2011 (limited)

How strange. Not only did July write and direct this odd film, but she also starred in it and supplied the voice for Paw-Paw the cat. If you have seen the only other feature length film that she directed, Me and You and Everyone We Know, you’ll be prepared for both cute quirkiness and some very disturbing behavior. Strange indeed.

Trailer – Fireflies in the Garden

Category : Trailer

Director: Dennis Lee

Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Willem Dafoe, Julia Roberts

Release: October 14, 2011

I feel like this film is trying to trick me. It looks emotional and interesting, but having Ryan Reynolds grow a beard won’t make me forget that he was Van Wilder, and having Julia Roberts die won’t make me forget that I hate her.

Trailer – Melancholia

Category : Trailer

Director: Lars von Trier

Starring: Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland

Release: November 2011

I might hate Kirsten Dunst (Bring It On, Spider-Man) and I might be scared of Lars von Trier (Dancer in the Dark, Antichrist), but this film still intrigues me. Other than dramatic, I have no idea what it will be like, and I like that.

Trailer – 50/50

Category : Trailer

Director: Jonathan Levine

Starring: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen

Release: September 30th, 2011

I’m always up for a humorous take on a serious subject. It adds levity to a depressing topic and it gives comedians a chance to show their dramatic abilities. And also, it will be nice to see Seth Rogen (Superbad, Knocked Up) back in the supporting role, which he is definitely more suited for.

Trailer – I Don’t Know How She Does It

Category : Trailer

Director: Douglas McGrath

Starring: Sarah Jessica Parker, Greg Kinnear, Pierce Brosnan

Year: 2011

Yes, Sarah Jessica Parker is relatable and normal-looking. And yes, women work hard to take care of their families. But are these two facts enough to base an entire movie on? I don’t think so.

Trailer – Swinging with the Finkels

Category : Trailer

Director: Jonathan Newman

Starring: Martin Freeman, Mandy Moore, Jonathan Silverman

Year: 2011

I’m not sure if I actually want to see this movie or if I just want to think of Mandy Moore in this way. It seems quite an odd cast really: a Hobbit, a pop star, and that guy from Weekend at Bernie’s. Strange.

Trailer – The Woman in Black

Category : Trailer

Director: James Watkins

Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Ciaran Hinds, Janet McTeer

Year: 2012

I don’t think I’ve ever half-covered my eyes during a trailer before, but I did for this one. Lonely houses are intrinsically scary, Daniel Radcliffe is a good actor, and this movie would give me nightmares. Now I just have to decide if I’m brave enough to see it.

Trailer – Coriolanus

Category : Trailer

Director: Ralph Fiennes

Starring: Ralph Fiennes, Gerard Butler, Brian Cox

Year: 2011

Any film that takes Shakespeare and gives him a modern spin is worth noticing. And perhaps this is a sign that Fiennes and Butler are prepared to start working on good movies again. Ive had enough of noseless demons and talentless female co-stars.

Trailer – Abduction

Category : Trailer

Director: John Singleton

Starring: Taylor Lautner, Lily Collins, Alfred Molina

Year: 2011

In the spirit of Chandler Bing, “Could this movie BE any worse?” Although, what can we expect from the director of 2 Fast 2 Furious and the star of Sharkboy and Lavagirl 3-D? Please, do not go see this movie.
