New Trailer And Poster Are Here For Jason Banker’s Feminist Thriller Felt

5 hours ago

In his Fantastic Fest review, Wamg’s Michael Haffner called Felt “impressive” and “compelling.”

A young artist loses herself in an unpredictable alter ego while attempting to cope with past trauma in this gripping sophomore effort from Jason Banker (Toad Road).

Felt celebrated its world premiere at Fantastic Fest 2014 where Amy Everson took home the “Next Wave” Spotlight Competition award for Best Actress.

Here’s a first look at the poster and trailer for the film.

Watch the red-band trailer Here.

Amy is hanging on by a thread. Struggling to cope with past sexual trauma and the daily aggressions of a male-dominated society, she creates grotesquely-costumed alter egos that reappropriate the male form.

While giving her the sense of power she craves, acting as these characters pushes her further into a world of her own making. When she begins a new relationship with a seemingly good guy, she opens herself »

See Robert Redford, Nick Nolte and Emma Thompson In A Walk In The Woods Trailer

7 hours ago

Take a hike with Robert Redford, Emma Thompson and Nick Nolte in the brand new trailer for Broad Green Pictures upcoming release, A Walk In The Woods.

Charming and funny, director Ken Kwapis‘ (Big Miracle) film looks to be a perfect fit for the Labor Day weekend.

In this new comedy adventure, celebrated travel writer, Bill Bryson (Academy Award winner Robert Redford), instead of retiring to enjoy his loving and beautiful wife (Academy Award winner Emma Thompson), and large and happy family, challenges himself to hike the Appalachian Trail – 2,200 miles of America’s most unspoiled, spectacular and rugged countryside from Georgia to Maine.

The peace and tranquility he hopes to find, though, is anything but, once he agrees to being accompanied by the only person he can find willing to join him on the trek – his long lost and former friend Katz (Academy Award nominee Nick Nolte), a down-on-his-luck serial philanderer who, »

Bel Powley and Kristen Wiig Star In The Diary Of A Teenage Girl Trailer

8 hours ago

Check out the new trailer for the Sundance hit The Diary Of A Teenage Girl, starring Bel PowleyAlexander Skarsgård, Christopher Meloni and Kristen Wiig.

Like most teenage girls, Minnie Goetze (Bel Powley) is longing for love, acceptance and a sense of purpose in the world. Minnie begins a complex love affair with her mother’s (Kristen Wiig) boyfriend, “the handsomest man in the world,” Monroe Rutherford (Alexander Skarsgård). What follows is a sharp, funny and provocative account of one girl’s sexual and artistic awakening, without judgment.

Set in 1976 San Francisco, The Diary Of A Teenage Girl begins at the crossroads of the fading hippie movement and the dawn of punk rock.

News commentary of the Patty Hearst trial echoes in the background, as Minnie’s young expressive eyes soak in a drug-laden city in transition- where teenage rebellion and adult responsibility clash in characters lost and longing. Minnie »

Watch The First Trailer for The End Of The Tour With Jason Segel and Jesse Eisenberg

8 hours ago

A24 Films has released the first trailer and poster from James Ponsoldt’s The End Of The Tour starring Jesse Eisenberg and Jason Segel.

An official selection at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Alex Billington (FirstShowing.net) called it “beautifully moving and mind-expanding.”

The End Of The Tour tells the story of the five-day interview between Rolling Stone reporter (and novelist) David Lipsky (Jesse Eisenberg) and acclaimed novelist David Foster Wallace (Jason Segel), which took place right after the 1996 publication of Wallace’s groundbreaking epic novel, Infinite Jest.

As the days go on, a tenuous yet intense relationship seems to develop between journalist and subject. The two men bob and weave around each other, sharing laughs and also possibly revealing hidden frailties – but it’s never clear how truthful they are being with each other. Ironically, the interview was never published, and five days of audio tapes were packed away in Lipsky’s closet. »

Kino Lorber Acquires North American Rights to Stephane Brizé’s Cannes Winner The Measure Of A Man

26 May 2015 11:16 AM, PDT

Kino Lorber has acquired all Us and Canadian rights to Stephane Brizé’s (Mademoiselle Chambon) The Measure Of A Man, starring Vincent Lindon (Mademoiselle Chambon, Bastards, Friday Night, La Moustache), winner of the Best Actor award at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. The film was directed by Mr. Brizé and co-written by Brizé and Olivier Gorce. This is Stephane Brizé’s sixth feature film.

Featuring “an all-consuming lead performance from Lindon” (Jordan Mintzer, THR.com) as a working-class man struggling with unemployment and then, facing a difficult moral choice as a security guard in a supermarket, Brizé supports his lead with a brilliantly directed cast of non-professional performers playing dramatized versions of themselves.

The film has been dubbed by critics as “an impressive foray into social drama” (Jordan Mintzer) and “French social critique at its finest” (Benjamin Dodman, The Atlantic), and continues an already-trailblazing partnership between Mr. Brizé and Mr. Lindon, »

Top Ten Tuesday – The Best Substitutes for Downton Abbey

26 May 2015 7:44 AM, PDT

By rights I should hate the English. Seriously, my background is almost entirely Scots and Irish. I grew up hearing about the troubles the English gave to the Scots and Irish, both in school and from my parents.

Yet I do not, I love the English. How can I hate a country that gave us not only Monty Python but also Benny Hill and the Carry On Films? How can I bear any ill will to a country that gave us writers of the caliber of Ramsey Campbell, Brian Aldiss, Michael Moorcock and J. G Ballard? How can anyone hate a country that not only prizes eccentric behavior but encourages it? Take Mr. Kim Newman for instance, a brilliant writer whose work appears regularly in Video WatchDog and Videoscope Mr. Newman dresses himself, has his hair and mustache styled and speaks in the manner of someone from the 19th Century! »

Elijah Wood Stars In Set Fire To The Stars Trailer And Poster

26 May 2015 7:33 AM, PDT

Opening in select U.S. theaters on June 12, watch the trailer for Set Fire To The Stars.

The film premiered in 2014 at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and was released in the UK in November.

Shelagh Rowan-Legg (Twitchfilm.com) wrote the film, “is a tribute not only to a poet, but to poetry, and how cinema can find its own way to convey poetry, through its own lyricism,” and “the stand-out feature of the poetic extention is by far the incredible score by Gruff Rhys.”

Based on true events, Elijah Wood stars as John Malcolm Brinnin, the New York academic who brought Dylan Thomas to America.

Actor/co-writer Celyn Jones plays the volatile celebrity poet – tormented by anonymity, alcohol and the abyss – who scandalized the Manhattan literati of the Fifties and challenged Brinnin’s hero worship of his work. In the face of the Welsh poet’s wilder excesses in the Big Apple – angel, »
