They are two types of people in this world: The people who radiate confidence and naturally excel at life, and the people who hope all those people die in an explosion. That’s the deadpan opening of today’s red band trailer for The Edge of Seventeen, one that places True Grit and Pitch Perfect 2 star Hailee Steinfeld in the role of Nadine, an awkward young woman struggling to make the transition from teenager to adult.
Also starring Woody Harrelson as Nadine’s wonderfully dry head teacher, The Edge of Seventeen represents the feature film debut of writer-director Kelly Fremon Craig, while James L. Brooks is on hand to produce. Coming-of-age dramas are a dime a dozen, of course, but Steinfeld has long proven her leading lady credentials; this, coupled with Craig’s snappy dialog ought to ensure the scribe’s first foray behind the lens is one to keep an eye on. »

Being seventeen is hard.
It's especially difficult when you're betrayed by your best friend, who not only gets with the popular kids, but starts dating your brother. This is just the beginning of Nadine's (Hailee Steinfeld) struggle.
We're suspending disbelief a little here, as the trailer paints Nadine to be an "ugly-duckling" of sorts, which Steinfeld is far from. However, we can relate to the feeling that the world is out to get us, which most teenagers go through at some point or another. The Edge of Seventeen portrays a lot of situations we've seen before, but with a hilarious and heart-felt first trailer, it has got something new to say. Also, Woody Harrelson co-stars as what seems to be the coolest teacher ever. »

True Grit star Hailee Steinfeld is getting her own John Hughes-esque coming-of-age story this fall with The Edge of Seventeen. The first trailer has now arrived for the raunchy teen comedy that handles the now-standard style of cynically funny high-schoolers who hate high school but still, like, ya know, have dreams, of course. Things get complicated for Steinfeld’s Nadine when her best friend (Haley Lu Richardson) starts dating her brother — yikes!
Drama ensues, handjob gestures are made, and Hailee Steinfeld says the f-word! As proven before, she seems to have decent comedic timing, and her exchanges with principal Woody Harrelson (who could very well be a scene-stealer) may end up being the highlight of the film. See the trailer below, along with a poster, for the film produced by James L. Brooks.

This week’s been full of useful tips for anybody trying to break into the lucrative Chinese film market. Ghosts are bad news, for instance, but (non-supernatural) magic is good. Very good, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which brings news that the card trick-based shenanigans of the Now You See Me franchise are getting a Chinese-led spinoff to capitalize on their overseas success.
The new film—produced by Chinese studio Leomus Pictures—will be shot in China and feature a mostly Chinese cast, while still trying to capture that “Woody Harrelson pulls a rabbit out of his fedora” vibe of the American originals. The company’s CEO, Jie Qiu, also told the Reporter that a Hollywood screenwriter would be on hand to ensure that Nysm canon was properly respected, and to help the studio preserve whatever the hell it is, exactly, that made Chinese audiences so enthusiastic for a fun-but-forgettable »

“There are two types of people in the world. The people who radiate confidence and naturally excel at life, and the people who hope all those people die in a big explosion.” That pretty much sums up high school junior Nadine’s (Hailee Steinfeld) thoughts on the social ladder, with her being at the bottom of the pyramid.
Growing up is hard, and it’s even harder when at the age of 13 your new haircut makes you look like Pedro from “Napoleon Dynamite.” But Nadine is a tough girl who, even though her brother is the most popular guy at school, is happy just getting by with her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson) at her side. Though, like every coming-of-age story there is always something that goes awry.

The Edge Of Seventeen wants you to believe that teen pop star and movie sensation Hailee Steinfeld could be an awkward, average-looking loser, which is about as believable as Mila Kunis as a frumpy mom in Bad Moms. The trailer introduces Steinfeld’s Nadine Byrd, a frustrated teen whose shitty life is exacerbated by the fact that Blake Jenner (Glee) is her brother. To make matters even worse, her best friend (Recovery Road’s Haley Lu Richardson) is banging him on the low. But wait, it gets worse! Nadine’s mom might look like a cool mom at first, because she’s played by Kyra freakin’ Sedgwick. But nope, she’s just another mom who doesn’t get it. So Nadine turns to the one person who might understand her: her blunt, wry teacher played by Woody Harrelson, who matches her teen angst with undervalued teacher angst.

The new coming-of-age movie film follows a high school junior (Steinfeld), already at peak awkwardness, who learns that her all-star older brother Darian (Blake Jenner) has begun dating her best friend Krista (Haley Lu Richardson).
Feeling more alone than ever, the unexpected friendship of a thoughtful boy (Hayden Szeto) gives her a glimmer of hope that things just might not be so terrible after all.

"Life's about taking risks, don't be afraid to put yourself out there." Stx Entertainment has debuted the first red band trailer for Kelly Fremon's The Edge of Seventeen, a new coming-of-age comedy starring Hailee Steinfeld that is in the vein of Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club. This film seems different than most teen comedies nowadays, described as an "honest, candid, often hilarious look at what it’s like to grow up as a young woman in today’s modern world." The full cast includes Woody Harrelson, Kyra Sedgwick, Haley Lu Richardson, Blake Jenner, Hayden Szeto. I'm impressed they started out with a red band trailer, but it's not too raunchy. This has some amusing moments but it mostly looks like good fun. Here's the first red band trailer for Kelly Fremon's The Edge of Seventeen, direct from YouTube: Everyone knows that growing up is hard, and life »

Deadline is reporting that Woody Harrelson and James Marsden have signed on to appear in Shock and Awe, an Iraq war drama from director Rob Reiner, which reteams the filmmaker with his Lbj screenwriter Joey Hartstone.
The site reports that the project follows “Knight-Ridder reporters Jonathan Landay and Warren Strobel, who after the events of 9/11, meet with their bureau chief John Walcott to get to the bottom of who was responsible. They find their sources telling them the Bush Administration is trying to tie Saddam Hussein to the terror attacks, even though there is no evidence to support the claim. As the push for war in Iraq increases, they bring in legendary reporter Joe Galloway to give them the high-level sources to help counter the false narrative of Hussein, al-Qaeda and WMDs. They find themselves one of the only media sources running stories countering the prevailing narrative. In the end, »

“The Night Of” is one of the most well-reviewed TV series of the year, and it’s not difficult to see why. I’ve seen seven of its eight parts, and I won’t spoil anything, but it continues to be a highly watchable murder mystery and a generally excellent vehicle for capable actors like Bill Camp, John Turturro and Riz Ahmed, among others.
“The Night Of” joins a long list of recent crime dramas that have garnered a ton of critical acclaim and sometimes the avid interest of the public as well; a few recommendations for things to watch after (or between episodes of) the HBO drama follow. But first, it’s worth noting how crime, one of TV’s sturdiest genres, has adapted so capably to the storytelling possibilities of the Peak TV era.
It’s not as if the crime drama ever went away, of course. But what’s generally true of this new »

Coming off one of the best films of last year, Tangerine, director Sean Baker is going from iPhone to 35mm for his next feature, The Florida Project. We spoke with him about the drama and now it’s recently gone into production, with Willem Dafoe spotted on set. Currently shooting in Orlando, it follows a six-year-old and her group of friends during summer break as they adventure and soar on youth while their parents handle real-life problems. Although there are no details on his role, one could assume Dafoe will play one of these parents. [Page Six]

Rob Reiner‘s last box office hit was a decade ago with “The Bucket List,” but you’d arguably have to go back to the 1990s to find his last good film. In more recent years, he’s made a string of indies (“Flipped,” “The Magic Of Belle Isle,” “And So It Goes,” “Being Charlie“) that have been […]
