While out hunting a deer, notorious poacher John Moon (a heavily-bearded Sam Rockwell) accidentally shoots and kills a young woman. As he searches for a place to dump the body, he stumbles upon her encampment and a box full of cash. Haunted by the dead woman’s image, John attempts to redeem himself by using the money to salvage what’s left of his tenuous marriage to Jess (Kelly Reilly), with whom he shares a son. But as the men who want that money begin to terrorize him, John is caught in a deadly (and dull) game of cat and mouse.

Descriptions of ‘noir’ and ‘haunting’ qualities abounded from the Berlinale back in February, and it’s a film I’ve been looking forward to even more since its debut.
Sam Rockwell takes the lead of a brilliant cast. And whilst we’re still not yet sure about when we can expect it to arrive in theatres, the first teaser trailer has debuted online, and it’s as powerful as you’d expect it to be.
A Single Shot revolves around a simple man, John Moon, a tragic accident, his despair and the need for immediate redemption. Moon, while stalking a deer out of season, accidentally shoots and kills a teenage girl. When trying to dispose of her body in a cave, he stumbles upon a hefty sum of money. »

A Single Shot Trailer. David M. Rosenthal‘s A Single Shot (2013) teaser trailer stars Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy, Ted Levine, Kelly Reilly, and Jason Isaacs.

Fresh off of it's world premiere at the Berlinale Festival, David M. Rosenthal's crime thriller A Single Shot got itself a trailer today, and boy is it something to see. The film was adapted by Matthew F. Jones from his own novel and stars Sam Rockwell as a deer hunter who falls into a strange game of cat and mouse with some backwoods criminals. The trailer acts more like a tone poem than a traditional trailer, but in this sense it sets a haunting, elliptical mood that has me very psyched for the film itself, much more so than a straightforward trailer focused on plot and exposition. Hit the jump to check out the trailer for yourself. Set to play the Tribeca Film Festival later this month, A Single Shot also stars Jeffrey Wright, Kelly Reilly, Jason Isaacs, Ted Levine and William H. Macy. Some movie fans may note »

Pictures speak louder than words in this trailer for the independent Sam Rockwell starrer A Single Shot. The trailer is dominated by gritty and poetic visuals as well as a nerve-shredding string piece that sounds like squealing cats, forks on plates and fingernails on chalkboards. Based on an acclaimed novel by Matthew F. Jones, the film sees Sam Rockwell as John Moon, a man trying to get his estranged family back together, but also getting involved in a crime. The trailer is a powerful one, and this could very well be a modern Blood Simple.
A Single Shot is about to play the Tribeca Film Destival starting on 26th April, but is yet to get a definite theatrical release. It stars Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy, Jeffrey Wright, Ted Levine, Melissa Leo, Jason Isaacs, and Kelly Reilly.

Film Festival Videos has the first trailer for A Single Shot, which is set to premiere later this month at the Tribeca film festival (April 17-28)
This movie looks chilling, especially the shot of river. Sam Rockwell’s cold performance is a complete transformation from his energetic persona in the movie Seven Psychopaths (2012). See some additional stills attached at the end (from the official Facebook page).
The tragic death of a beautiful young girl starts a tense and atmospheric game of cat and mouse between hunter John Moon and the hardened backwater criminals out for his blood.

Though the development process wound up stretching across a couple of years, with a few actors coming and going along the way, it's hard to argue with the impressive lineup David M. Rosenthal ("Janie Jones") assembled for "A Single Shot": Sam Rockwell, Jeffrey Wright, Jason Isaacs, William H. Macy, Melissa Leo, Kelly Reilly ("Flight," "Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows") and Ophelia Lovibond ("No Strings Attached," "London Boulevard"). Not too shabby at all. And while it was one of our most anticipated movies of the Berin International Film Festival, the end result didn't exactly win us over, but you'll soon be able to judge for yourself. The first trailer for the movie has dropped, and it certainly highlights mood over plot or anything else. Based on the book by Matthew F. Jones, the story follows Rockwell's John Moon, a hunter who accidentally shoots a teenage girl and then discovers »

A veteran of hard-bitten parts in 24, The Pacific and CSI, Dale had a single-scene outing in Flight, playing an emaciated cancer patient who exists to act as a wheezing existential cupid to Denzel Washington's boozy pilot and Kelly Reilly's friendly junkie.

They say that flying is the safest way to travel. Although that statement is not as shocking today as it once was, the point is that things aren’t always as they seem. Flight is a movie that explores this phenomenon with characters and situations that play off of the audience’s preconceived notions.
Despite its title, Flight doesn’t really have anything to do with flying. Sure, there’s a plane, and the main character is an airline pilot, but that’s about it. The plane crashes, and the pilot is similarly grounded. Regardless, Flight is still a very fitting title. It’s about our attempts as human beings to make our lives meaningful and reach our potential. It’s about the yearning to rise above all of the daily challenges and tribulations we face to truly become something special. We all want to “fly”, but it is our »

Although winning an Oscar is a big achievement, a nomination is also quite an achievement. But what about those other guys who don’t get nominated? Here’s our list of potential nominees that didn’t get nominated but seem like they should have.
The Oscars are arguably the most well-recognized and prestigious awards in filmmaking. As such, competition is very tough. Every year it seems that a few people or films get left out of the party when they should otherwise have been included. It’s simple math. There are only so many nominations for each particular category and many, many potential nominees to pick from.
Some movies seem like their only purpose is to win an Oscar. They know what the Academy is looking for and they cater to that taste. They’re always well-promoted, have big names attached, and are released towards the end of the year »
