Watch: Nicole Kidman Loses Her Kids in Aussie 'Strangerland' Trailer

21 November 2014 2:04 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Early next year, we'll see Nicole Kidman get a little evil by kidnapping the talking bear Paddington, and on the complete other end of the spectrum, there's Strangerland, a haunting thriller about a woman whose teenage kids go missing on the eve of a massive dust storm in the small Australian desert town of Nathgari. As red dust and darkness covers the town, the locals, including police officer David Rae (Hugo Weaving) try to help, but it soon becomes apparent that something terrible may have happened to them, and that's when fingers are pointed, and the situation escalates pretty quickly. This looks like a pretty intense thriller, and it's nice to see someone like Joseph Fiennes doing something promising again. Watch the trailer! Here's the Aussie trailer for Kim Farrant's Strangerland (via The Film Stage): Strangerland marks the directorial debut of Kim Farrant from a script written by Fiona Seres and Michael Kinirons. »

'Strangerland' Trailer Starring Nicole Kidman

21 November 2014 1:35 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Nicole Kidman and Joseph Fiennes go searching for their missing teenage children in the first trailer for Strangerland.

Catherine (Nicole Kidman) and Matt Parker (Joseph Fiennes) are trying to adjust to their new life in the remote Australian desert town of Nathgari. They are pleasant but keep to themselves, unwilling to get close to anyone. On the eve of a massive dust storm, their lives are rocked when their two teenage children, Lily and Tom disappear into the desert. With Nathgari now eerily smothered in red dust and darkness, the locals join the search lead by local cop, David Rae (Hugo Weaving). It soon becomes apparent that something terrible may have happened to them. Suspicion is cast, rumors spread and ancient Aboriginal stories are told in whispers as the locals begin to turn against the couple. With temperatures rising and the chances of survival plummeting with each passing day, Catherine »

Watch: Eerie, Haunting Trailer For 'Strangerland' Starring Nicole Kidman And Hugo Weaving

21 November 2014 1:33 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We could really use a good movie from Nicole Kidman. This year she starred in the terribly reviewed "Before I Go To Sleep," the forgettable "The Railway Man," and her Cannes opener "Grace Of Monaco" was savaged by critics. Her next gig? "Paddington." Thankfully, "Strangerland" holds some promise and the haunting first teaser trailer has arrived. Co-starring Hugo Weaving and Joseph Fiennes, the story follows a couple whose relationship is pushed to its breaking point after their two teenage children disappear into the outback. Penned by Fiona Seres and Michael KinironsKim Farrant (documentary “Naked on the Inside,” Australian TV show “Rush”) makes her feature debut on the project. And frankly, this looks like the kind of gritty, no frills movie Kidman needs to bounce back with. We're crossing our fingers that the moodiness on display adds up to something memorable. No release date or U.S. »

Watch The First Trailer For Nicole Kidman’s Desert Drama Strangerland

21 November 2014 12:51 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Nicole Kidman’s first indie pic on Aussie soil sees the actress united with Hugo Weaving and Joseph Fiennes for a dark tale of human survival. The brainchild of first-time director Kim Farrant, Strangerland is based on a script by Fiona Seres and Michael Kinirons, and has now unveiled its first trailer.

The moody drama picks up on Catherine (Kidman) and Matt Parker (Fiennes), a couple who relocate to the Australian desert with their family in tow. When their kids go missing in the vast desert, they must confront the terrible fate of what’s happened to the two teenagers. Reaching out to the community they’ve kept at arm’s length, they enlist local copper David (Weaving) to help with the search.

A hint of A Cry In The Dark? A smidgen of Jindabyne? The trailer points towards another solid trio of performances from the leading cast – and a particularly harrowing turn from Kidman. »

Brett Ratner's Hercules starring Dwayne Johnson, otherwise known as The Rock, will be hacking and slashing its way to Digital HD on October 21, followed by a November 4 release date for Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD.

Johnson plays the titular character who leads a mission with other warriors into a battle with overwhelmingly impossible odds. The film also stars Ian McShane, Joseph Fiennes, Rufus Sewell and John Hurt.

The home video debut of Hercules features an additional three minutes of footage spliced into a new "extended cut" for Blu-ray and DVD.

Paramount and Ratner didn't bother with 3D-encoding the extra minutes of footage.

“‘We Watched the Sun Disappear’ contains some of the same elements that turned me on with ‘When Animals Dream.’ It has a very cinematographic backdrop and is set within the same kind of microcosmos,” Arnby said.
