Another Look at Pa Drama Young Ones [Trailer]

23 July 2014 4:29 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

We've already seen two trailers for Jake Paltrow's upcoming Pa drama Young Ones but with the movie's release quickly approaching, the studio has seen fit to cut a third, rather short but effective teaser for the movie.

Starring Michael Shannon, Kodi Smit-McPhee (now a regular when it comes to Pa fare), and Dakota Fanning all star as members of a family surviving in the desert of the future and their attempt to subvert Nicholas Hoult who has more in mind than simply rejuvenating the soil.

The new teaser features much of the same footage from the earlier trailers but it promises a movie that is a lot more action packed than we've previously seen and I expect this is a [Continued ...] »

Watch: Jake Paltrow's 'Young Ones' Us Teaser Trailer is a Visual Feast

23 July 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Some brief international teaser trailers just surfaced for the intriguing sci-fi flick Young Ones, which debuted at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, and now a short teaser trailer for the film's release in the United States has arrived, showcasing more of the cool desert landscape that director Jake Paltrow has created. The film has flares of Steven Spielberg with hints of Mad Max, and a sweeping, grand score, complete with a truly incredible cast that features Michael Shannon, Dakota Fanning, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Nicholas Hoult. This is what indie sci-fi strives to be, and it's very cool. Watch below! Here's the new Us trailer for Jake Paltrow's Young Ones from Vulture: Young Ones is written and directed by Jake Paltrow. Set in a near future when water has become the most precious and dwindling resource on the planet, the land has withered into something wretched. The dust has settled on a lonely, »

Watch: New Visually Striking U.S. Trailer For ‘Young Ones’ Starring Elle Fanning, Michael Shannon & More

23 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s a dystopian near-future, water has run dry and America’s in a debilitating drought. That’s what sets the stage for Jake Paltrow’s new picture “Young Ones.” But it’s actually from many accounts, including our own review, more of a morality drama with a patriarchal struggle for power. The movie stars Michael Shannon as a father trying to protect his land and family. His children are played by Elle Fanning and Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Nicholas Hoult plays a young man with his eye on more than just the previous land the father owns. We described it as having both Spielberg-ian and Bresson-ian elements to it—the latter expressed through a dilapidated anthropomorphic robot perhaps not unlike the poor donkey in “Au Hasard Balthazar.” And I dunno about you, but any movie that can carefully balance those two filmmakers successfully is something I’d wanna see.

See the Visually Striking Trailer for Young Ones, With Michael Shannon and Elle Fanning

23 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Comic-Con starts up this weekend with a full roster of megabudget spectaculars on display, but spare a moment for another sci-fi movie coming out soon that cost a lot less but still looks like a million bucks. Directed by Jake Paltrow (yes, you've heard of his sister), the dystopian Young Ones takes place in a future that's almost totally devoid of water, which makes farming a difficult task for hardened frontiersman Michael Shannon and his two children, played Elle Fanning and Kodi Smit-McPhee. Once Fanning's boyfriend Nicholas Hoult sets his sights on stealing Shannon's land, the stage is set for all the characters to clash, and they pursue their agendas in a visually stunning, barren futurescape that's shown off to great effect in this exclusive new trailer. Robots! Electronic spinal cords! Nifty, low-tech face masks! This rather different sci-fi Western arrives in theaters on October 17, so save the date. »

8 July 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Water is scarce in Young OnesJake Paltrow’s latest film, but tension is everywhere as the world fights over the now-precious resource.

Michael Shannon and Nicholas Hoult Fight Over Water – and Elle Fanning – in First ‘Young Ones’ Trailer (Video)

7 July 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

“The Young Ones” is another entry into the hot dystopian genre, but this one sees Michael Shannon and Nicholas Hoult in a desperate battle for water — and the fate of Elle Fanning – in the film's first French-subtitled trailer. Directed by Jake Paltrow, the sci-fi thriller is set in a dry, dry desert world in which water is precious. Kodi Smit-McPhee is the kid at the center of it all, fighting for survival in this desolate and dangerous world. The film premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival, so it's no “Hunger Games”-style action flick, but seems to be more. »

Dystopian Western Young Ones Gets Two Intriguing Trailers

7 July 2014 5:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When it premiered at Sundance earlier this year, dystopian Young Ones didn’t make much of a splash, despite featuring such stars as Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult, Elle Fanning and Kodi Smit-McPhee. The film, directed by Jake Paltrow (younger brother to Gwyneth), takes place in a world decimated by massive drought and follows two ranchers (Shannon and Hoult) who turn on each other in their struggle for survival. As their conflicts grow more violent, Hoult’s rancher pursues a relationship with the other’s daughter (Fanning).

Our own Dominic Mill caught the film and wasn’t a fan, giving it two stars and concluding:

Young Ones feels like an opportunity wasted, with a genuinely unique take on the classic Western thrown away for the sake of something far more dull. It’s competently made, but the more it wore on the less interested I became (it feels a good deal »

Brutal Desert Earth For Nicolas Hoult, Elle Fanning & Michael Shannon In Indie Trailer ‘Young Ones’

7 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Out among the deserted Earth-films lies a newcomer that’s in the shape of Jake Paltrow’s debut Young Ones.

Set in the near future where water has all but disappeared, it’s now the most precious resource on the planet and one that leads the way in everything from politics to relationships and without water ‘How can anything grow?‘ both literally and figuratively. With only tough survivors struggling to survive, we join Ernest Holm (Michael Shannon) who lives in this dusty world with his children, Jerome (Kodi Smit-McPhee) and Mary (Elle Fanning). Although Holm can fight off everyone else trying to steal what he’s got left, what happens when Mary’s boyfriend Flem (Nicolas Hoult) wants Ernest’s land for himself? 

These two teaser trailers set us up for another broken dystopia narrative but it looks sweltering with the additional of some working robots, mixing up the likes »

New trailer for apocalyptic drama Young Ones

6 July 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

2014 has seen a slew of apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic themed films hitting the cinemas.

Apocalyptic Young Ones Looks Impressive [Trailer + Gallery]

6 July 2014 11:47 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Futuristic movies in which water is a scarce commodity aren't exactly new or few and far between but it's always interesting to see a new take on the sub-genre and while we eagerly await George Miller's upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road (stills), it looks like we could do far worse than Jake Paltrow's Young Ones.

Paltrow's film also unfolds in a future where water is scarce and the land has turned to sand but the story suggests there's some strange "Dune" like activity going on with a woman who may or may not have the answers to solving the water problem. Or at least that's what I gather from the stark first trailer that also features some dreamlike elements. The second, a Fre [Continued ...] »

Indie Trailer Sunday: Director Jake Paltrow's New Sci-Fi 'Young Ones'

6 July 2014 10:54 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Let us say a prayer that this piece of land, small as it may be, can be more than a symbol." Today's trailer is for an indie sci-fi/post apocalyptic film that premiered at Sundance to rather dismal buzz. It's the second feature from Jake Paltrow, younger brother of Gwyneth Paltrow, whose debut was The Good Night from 2007. This one, titled the Young Ones, is another genre-mixer set in the future, but with the tone and style of a Dust Bowl western. Kodi Smit-McPhee stars as the nomad son of Michael Shannon, and Nicholas Hoult actually plays a villain, with Elle Fanning his girlfriend. These first trailers are early promos that may not stay online, but as a first glimpse I'm intrigued to see how this looks. If you're curious, take a look. Watch the first few promo trailers for Jake Paltrow's Young Ones below, found via The Playlist: »

Watch: The Earth Is Scorched In First Trailers For 'Young Ones' Starring Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning & Nicolas Hoult

4 July 2014 2:53 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s been a while since we've heard anything about the dystopian Sundance film “Young Ones.” Screen Media bought the film in May, but the months between its Utah debut and sale were rather quiet. That’s changing, with the release of two new trailers. Presumably a release date is not far behind. Written and directed by Jake Paltrow (yep, Gwyneth’s younger brother), “Young Ones” stars Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult, Elle Fanning and Kodi Smit-McPhee. Dystopian with sci-fi trappings, but more of a moral drama, “Young Ones” is set in a future where a massive drought has transformed the United States into a giant wasteland, Shannon and Hoult play neighboring ranchers who will do anything to ensure the survival of their respective families, even if it means betraying one another. Some reviews out of Sundance in January were mixed, but our critic on the ground was definitely in the pro camp. »
