Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen Star in the International Trash Trailer From Director Stephen Daldry

12 hours ago | | See recent news »

I’m not sure where I come down on this Trash trailer, in part because I can only understand about 10% of it.  Universal Pictures Brazil has released an international trailer for the film, directed by Stephen Daldry and written by British rom-com maestro Richard Curtis.  In the film, “three poverty-stricken boys who discover something unusual, mysterious, and dangerous in a city dump.” The trailer has some slick visuals and a tone that reminds me of Slumdog Millionaire in the way that it places children in sort of a “safe” feeling criminal world.  Martin Sheen and Rooney Mara star alongside Wagner Moura (Elysium) and Selton MelloRickson Tevez, Eduardo Luis, and Gabriel Weinstein play the three young boys at the center of the mystery.  Hit the jump to check out the Trash trailer.  The film is based on the novel by Andy Mulligan.  There is no word yet on a U. »

Stephen Daldry’s 'Trash' With Rooney Mara Is Hitting The Fall Film Festival Circuit, Just Not One You’ll Probably See

12 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

So the trailer for Stephen Daldry’s “Trash” is out there. Set in Brazil, it chronicles impoverished street kids who find themselves involved in a political scandal when they make a discovery in a garbage dump. Soon the trio are running from the cops and trying to right a terrible wrong. It stars Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen as an Ngo worker and priest, respectively, and highlights a triad of young Brazilian boys played by Rickson Teves, Eduardo Luis and Gabriel Weinstein. And yes, these non-actor discoveries are actually the leads with the Americans providing the support (Brazilians Wagner Moura and Selton Mello also co-star). “The three lead actors in the film have never acted in a film before, they’ve never been to a cinema before,” Daldry said in a recent interview with Screen Daily. "The reason I made this film is because it’s about the underbelly, the difficult side of Rio, »

13 hours ago | | See recent news »

As we dive deeper into the fall awards season in 2014, more prestige films are suddenly being unveiled. This isn't a new trailer, but it is a trailer for a film that might end up with tons of acclaim by the end of this year. The next film from The Reader director Stephen Daldry is an adaptation titled Trash, about three young orphaned boys (played by newcomers Rickson Tevez, Eduardo Luis & Gabriel Weinstein) in Brazil who make a discovery in a garbage dump and find themselves running from the cops in a corrupt society.

1973 Look Back: Terrence Malick's Debut "Badlands"

25 July 2014 7:31 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

To give the impending Smackdown some context, we're looking at films from 1973. Here's Abstew on a spectacular debut...

With only a half dozen films released over the past 40 years, director Terrence Malick has already earned his place among the greatest American filmmakers. Despite his relatively small filmography, he has carved out a distinct brand of filmmaking that inspires (sometimes as much as it confuses or bores). But before he was an admired and respected filmmaker, he was just a former Rhodes scholar that graduated from Harvard working as a philosophy professor at MIT. His first film, Badlands, began to take take shape as he studied film at the American Film Institute. It was immediately hailed by critics on its initial release in 1973, where it was the closing night film at the New York Film Festival. That year's festival also saw the debut of Martin Scorsese's Mean Streetsm proving that »

24 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Lily Tomlin will be reuniting with her Nine to Five costar Jane Fonda in a new Netflix comedy series called Grace and Frankie.

Lily Tomlin On 'Grace & Frankie'

According to Tomlin, her Netflix series Grace & Frankie features “two women whose husbands are lawyers and have been business partners for 40 years." In her interview with Vanity Fair, Tomline added, “The two girls don’t like each other, though. [Jane Fonda’s character] is very straight-laced, Republican, and conservative in her dress. She is married to Martin Sheen’s character.” As for Tomlin’s character, who is married to Sam Waterston, she “is very bohemian.”

At the start of the series, Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Tomlin) head to a double-date dinner with their husbands, which goes a bit differently then they'd anticipated. “We go out to dinner thinking that our husbands are going to announce their retirement,” Tomlin explained. “And instead, they announce that for 20 years »

Watch the First Trailer for 'Trash' Starring Rooney Mara

21 July 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I have been pruning my 2015 Oscar predictions lately and I almost removed Stephen Daldry's Trash from my Best Picture predictions... good thing I didn't as the first trailer for the film has been released suggesting we're likely to hear it announced as part of one of the upcoming fall film festivals if not several. Given this version comes from Universal Brazil (where the film actually opens in October) it doesn't exactly give us an idea of where it might show up though as part of tomorrow's announcement of the first wave of Toronto Film Festival features would be a good guess. The film, which stars Rooney Mara,follows three boys in a third world country who scrape a living by picking through trash.
