Jon Hamm Feels ‘Nostalgia’ in Trailer for Alex Ross Perry-Scripted Drama

February finally brings the long-awaited release of Golden Exits, but it’s not the only Alex Ross Perry film to be hitting theaters next month. The Queen of Earth director also penned the script for Nostalgia, the latest film from director Mark Pellington (The Mothman Prophecies, Arlington Road), and now the first trailer has landed.

Starring Jon Hamm, Catherine Keener, John Ortiz, Nick Offerman, Chris Marquette, James Le Gros with Bruce Dern and Ellen Burstyn, it tells a series of stories about memories and regret. It certainly looks more sentimental than Perry’s previous work and we’ll find out the first reactions soon as it premieres at Palm Springs International Film Festival this weekend.

See the trailer and poster below.

A mosaic of stories about love and loss, Nostalgia explores our relationships to the objects, artifacts, and memories that shape our lives.

Nostalgia opens on February 16.

‘Nostalgia’ Trailer: Jon Hamm and Ellen Burstyn Star in Alex Ross Perry-Penned Ensemble Drama — Watch

‘Nostalgia’ Trailer: Jon Hamm and Ellen Burstyn Star in Alex Ross Perry-Penned Ensemble Drama — Watch
In Mark Pellington’s newest drama, penned by indie stalwart Alex Ross Perry, one of life’s enduring — and, frankly, damn unsettling — questions is writ large though the various stories of people dealing with love and loss in different ways: what would you save from a burning building? Ellen Burstyn’s character asks that query overtly in the film’s first trailer, playing a woman who literally had to ask that very question as her home went up in flames.

She’s hardly the only person sorting through the value of objects, as “Nostalgia” weaves together a “mosaic of stories about love and loss” and, per its own intriguingly short synopsis, aims to “explore our relationships to the objects, artifacts, and memories that shape our lives.” Elsewhere, Jon Hamm appears as a man wrestling with the weight of his childhood home and what it actually means to him.

Corey Swanson has problems. He’s almost 30, still lives in his mom’s basement, doesn’t date, and his career amounts to slicing meat in an archaic deli that no one ever comes to – unless they want to rob it. After a chance encounter with a popular former classmate, Corey learns that his high school crush Sheena Halliday will soon be in town for their 10-year reunion. Sheena, now a world-famous athlete, has been dubbed “the Lindsay Lohan of the wrestling world”. She twists and pounds people into oblivion for a living – the same thing she did to Corey’s heart back in high school. Corey puts his broken heart (and punched face) aside,

Wff 2016: Chokeslam Review

One of the things I love most about festivals is discovering something new and loglines don't get much stranger than "wrestling romantic comedy." But I'm cheating a little here because Chokeslam isn't really a new discovery but rather a movie I've been looking forward to since it premiered at the Calgary International Film Festival.

A passion project for writer/director Robert Cuffley (who a few years ago was responsible for the great thriller Ferocious (review), this comedy stars Chris Marquette as Corey, a nice guy who stuck around the small town he grew up in. His 10th anniversary high school re-union is around the corner and with it comes the return of Sheena, [Continued ...]

Fear, Inc. Review

Fear Inc. introduces an idea that’ll have most horror fans licking their lips, but ultimately fails to stick multiple landings. Director Vincent Masciale attempts to out-meta heavyweights such as Cabin In The Woods, but his self-serving plea to genre lovers comes across as more desperate than inspirational.

Characters talk in dialogue from past genre classics, making Luke Barnett’s screenplay seem poser-ish by incessantly focusing on past classics instead of investing in a righteous fake company. Fun horror appreciation (a Mimesis inspiration) unravels as “reveals” keep on whiffing, until you’re sick and tired of hitting the restart button. Not everyone can be Shyamalan right out the gate, and – unfortunately – when tricks aren’t also treats, everything falls apart.

Lucas Neff stars as Joe Foster, a horror movie buff who has become bored with the predictability of life. Girlfriend Lindsey (Caitlin Stasey) hopes to motivate her slacker lover, but

Fall Horror Movie Preview: A Definitive Guide to the Season's Macabre Offerings
2Nd Update (9/23, 3:23 Pdt): An earlier version of this article listed Elle Evans as the actress who plays the title role in The Love Witch. That distinction in fact goes to Samantha Robinson. We regret the error. Update (9/22, 11:37 Pm Pdt): The same day this article was published, Paramount pushed back the release date for Rings from October 28 to February 3, 2017. Original Article: Fall has traditionally been viewed as the prime time of year for the horror film, but this summer was actually a pretty good one for the genre, with movies like The Conjuring 2, Lights Out, and the surprise smash Don't Breathe doing gangbusters business in the midst of blockbuster season. But the year's not over yet! With September in full swing, there are a number of worthwhile (and, yes, questionable) titles looming on the release calendar over the next three months. Below, you can find a rundown of 12 upcoming horror films,
