Joel Edgerton's Directorial Debut Looks All Kinds Of Creepy

2 April 2015 12:53 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Joel Edgerton is one of those great actors who crops up in movies, delivers a knockout performance, and still manages to fly under the radar of most of the public - if you haven't seen Warrior, rectify that immediately!! Now, he's stepping behind the camera for the first time, for a great looking psychological thriller called The Gift. The trailer does a great job of setting up the story, which Edgerton is also starring in, alongside Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall. There are some great sinister undertones to this and now, like Edgerton, it should be firmly on your radar. the Gift is out in late July. »

First Trailer For The Gift Online

1 April 2015 5:35 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Demonstrating how quickly Jason Blum's Blumhouse operation moves, here's a trailer for The Gift, barely two months after most of the cast came aboard. Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall star alongside Joel Edgerton, who's also the writer, director and producer. Bateman and Hall play a married couple who decide to breathe some life into their stale relationship with a fresh start in a new town. But their move takes them into the orbit of Edgerton's Gordo, an apparent friend of Bateman's from the past whose arrival means unwelcome disruption. The film's working title was Weirdo...It's a change of tone for the more usually comedic Bateman, and a continuation of Edgerton's recent form wearing multiple hats. He was a writer and producer on Felony too, and last year's excellent The Rover was also based on an Edgerton screenplay. The Gift marks his feature debut behind the camera after a couple of shorts. »

Joel Edgerton gets behind the directing chair for paranoid thriller, ‘The Gift’

1 April 2015 4:46 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Simon says….look out for Joel Edgerton and his goatee.

The first trailer for The Gift was released on Wednesday, which marks the directorial debut of The Great Gatsby and Exodus star Joel Edgerton. The paranoid thriller also stars Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall.

Edgerton has been a solid actor for some time now with bit parts in multiple movies, both big and small, and this film looks like it has a lot going for it. From the trailer, it seems to be in the same vein as popular horror thrillers such as Insidious (and actually shares a producer with that movie) and could possibly work with a mass audience. Edgerton has only directed short films up to this point, but The Gift could be a step into bigger movies.

The cast is great with Bateman diving into drama, which he has been doing recently with Disconnect and This Is Where I Leave You, »

Watch: First Trailer for Joel Edgerton’s ‘The Gift’

1 April 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The newly launched Stx Entertainment has released the first trailer for its first release — “The Gift,” starring Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall and Joel Edgerton — four months ahead of its July 31 release.

Bateman and Hall portray a young married couple whose life is going as planned until a chance encounter with a creepy acquaintance from Bateman’s character’s high school, played by Edgerton, sends their world into a tailspin.

“You think you’re done with the past but the past isn’t done with you,” Edgerton’s character warns.

The producer is horror specialist Jason Blum, who also produced “Whiplash.” “The Gift” also marks the feature directorial debut of Edgerton, who wrote the script.

The trailer launched on the same day that China’s Huayi Brothers agreed a deal to co-finance at least 18 Stx movies to be produced over a three-year period.

Jason Bateman and Joel Edgerton's New Thriller Looks Awesomely Creepy

1 April 2015 3:14 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If you count Single White Female and Fatal Attraction as some of your favorite movies, you might just love the trailer for The Gift. Joel Edgerton stars as Gordo, a seemingly awkward man who "randomly" runs into Simon (Jason Bateman), an old high school peer. Soon, Simon and his wife (Rebecca Hall) start getting presents delivered to their doorstep. It starts off innocently enough, but things get really creepy really fast. It becomes apparent that Simon is hiding something from his past - something that he hoped would never come back to haunt him. Dun dun duuun! Edgerton wrote and directed the film, which makes it all the more interesting. The movie opens on July 31, along with a ton of other exciting Summer releases, and you can watch the trailer below. »

Jason Bateman And Rebecca Hall Star In Trailer For Joel Edgerton’s Directorial Debut The Gift

1 April 2015 3:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One out of many lessons that the movies have taught us is that history has a tendency to return at the most inopportune time and make life a living hell. If there’s an incident you’d prefer no-one ever hear of, make sure you scrub away all evidence. And if there’s someone else involved in this life-changing secret? It’s probably a good idea not to accept their friend request on Facebook. Nevertheless, past mistakes can haunt the best of us, as is the case for Jason Bateman’s character in The Gift.

In the film, Bateman plays Simon, who’s happily married to his lovely spouse Robyn (Rebecca Hall) until an old school chum from his past looms into view. Enter Gordo, played by the film’s director Joel Edgerton, a seemingly nice returnee from Simon’s younger years. The trouble is, his sinister re-appearance coincides with a clutch of eerie encounters, »

Watch: Your Friend Gordo is Back in First Trailer for 'The Gift' Thriller

1 April 2015 3:05 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"It's not over..." No, it has only just begun. Stx has debuted the first trailer for The Gift, the new "chilling psychological thriller" from Blumhouse that was first teased earlier this week with mysterious and eerily personal shipments to many movie bloggers. The Gift is the directing debut of Joel Edgerton, who also wrote the script and stars in the film as Gordo, a creepy old high school friend who shows up suddenly when a couple moves back to town. Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall play the nice couple caught up in all the craziness, as you'll soon see there's much more going on with Gordo than he's letting on. There is enough creepiness established with the story and setup, that I can't say much more to creep you out further. Enjoy. Here's the first official trailer for Joel Edgerton's The Gift, direct from Stx's YouTube: Simon (Jason Bateman »

The Gift Trailer: Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall Make a Creepy Friend

1 April 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Stx Entertainment has released the first The Gift trailer for writer/director Joel Edgerton’s upcoming feature directorial debut. Produced by Jason Blum, the psychological thriller revolves around young married couple, Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn (Rebecca Hall), whose chance encounter with an acquaintance from Simon’s high school digs up secrets from the past. The premise is fairly well-worn territory, but Edgerton looks to have put an interesting spin on the story with a swell acting trio to boot. He’s certainly got the “creepy oddball” thing down, and I’m curious to see how Bateman fares in the horror-thriller genre. This is Edgerton’s first feature as a director after having helmed a couple of short films, so The Gift could be a sign of things to come from the multitalented Australian. Watch the first The Gift trailer below. The film opens in theaters on July 31st. Here »

We’re not allergic to television, but for us Orange is the New Black’s Michael Chernus truly broke out at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, with the girlfriend stealer role in Jim Strouse’s People Places Things and as the generous giver and toker in Noah Baumbach’s Mistress America. THR reports that he is one of the last pegs in the Parts and Labor produced project from filmmaker Joshua Marston.
