Adrien Brody's Detachment Trailer

23 December 2011 2:10 PM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Today we have an international trailer for "Detachment," which stars Adrien Brody, Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks, James Caan, Lucy Liu, Tim Blake Nelson and Marcia Gay Harden. It is directed by Tony Kaye (American History X) and already premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. Check out the trailer below. Plot: Henry Barthes (Brody) is an educator with a true talent to connect with his students. Yet Henry has chosen to bury his gift. By spending his days as a substitute teacher, he conveniently avoids any emotional connections by never staying anywhere long enough to form an attachment to either students or colleagues. When a new assignment places him at a public school where a frustrated, burned-out administration has created an apathetic student body, Henry quickly becomes a role model as a teacher who actually cares about the well-being of these students.

Trailers, Clips, and Images for Detachment Starring Adrien Brody, Christina Hendricks, and Lucy Liu

23 December 2011 9:58 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Tony Kaye made a big splash in 1998 with his directorial debut American History X.  He has kept busy in the years since, but maintained a low profile.  That could change with his new film Detachment.  The cast will bring name recognition to the film: veterans Adrien Brody, James Caan, Christina Hendricks, Lucy Liu, Marcia Gay Harden, Bryan Cranston, William Petersen, Blythe Danner, Tim Blake Nelson are joined by fresh faces like Betty Kaye and Sami Gayle.  Tribeca Films acquired the film in September, and has released trailers and clips over the last month that stand out from the vast collection of promotional material we host here at Collider.  The story follows a substitute teacher (Brody) on assignment at a failing public school.  The appeal of Detachment is in the execution, so hit the jump for trailers, clips, posters, and images from the film. After seeing Trailer Addict posted an international trailer, »

International Trailer For Detachment With Adrien Brody Is Just As Beautiful As The Poster

23 December 2011 6:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

We got our first look at Adrien Brody’s next film, Detachment, when an international poster surfaced back in November, which instantly conjured up a sort of restrained beauty with a simple photograph of Brody deep in thought before a chalkboard.

A new French trailer for the film has been released online, via The Playlist, and it lives up to the beauty of the poster and a lot more too. Tony Kaye, director of American History X, is behind the camera for this, directing from Carl Lund’s debut script.

Detachment is a chronicle of three weeks in the lives of several high school teachers, administrators and students through the eyes of a substitute teacher named Henry Barthes (Adrien Brody). Henry’s method of imparting vital knowledge onto his temporary students is interrupted by the arrival of three women in his life.”

Along with Brody, the film has a terrific »

International Trailer for Tony Kaye’s ‘Detachment,’ Starring Adrien Brody

22 December 2011 6:02 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Tony Kaye’s first feature since American History X — a movie he didn’t even want his name on — Detachment has received an international trailer that shows off the performance of Adrien Brody. This is about eight months after the education drama hit the Tribeca Film Festival to a mixed response (Jordan liked it, however), so it’s only fitting that I have difficulty grasping the direction things could go here.

If anything about this preview really stands out positively, it has to be Brody getting an opportunity at a better role — something he’s been derived of for longer than you’d think. But, on the other hand, we have Kaye‘s odd, Friday Night Lights-like sense of direction, which I’m not terribly fond of in any form. That could be a problem down the line, though I’d like to focus on the positive here. On that note — hey, »

Exclusive Clip From ‘Detachment’ Teases Sadness, Loss and One Director’s Possible Redemption

21 December 2011 6:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Director Tony Kaye‘s debut was 1998′s stunning tour de force, American History X. The film stars Edward Norton as a recovering skinhead trying to set things right in the present while remembering his misdeeds of the past, and if you haven’t seen it I can’t recommend enough that you stop reading and seek it out immediately. It’s an incredibly affecting film anchored by a tremendous performance from Norton. Sadly, Edward Furlong also stars. Kaye and Norton had a very public falling out during the film’s post-production, and the director seemingly vanished into thin air in the decade-plus since. Except he’s actually been making films at a steady pace. You just most likely haven’t seen them. Now thirteen years after reportedly trying to remove his name from American History X (and replace it with Humpty Dumpty) Kaye’s latest film looks to return him to the limelight. The »

Top 10 Hollywood Actors Still In Business

16 December 2011 7:05 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Much of our lurid film community is of the belief that America’s acting prowess died with its classic stars like Marlon Brando, James Stewart, Humphrey Bogart, Katharine Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Grace Kelly. However, I’m here to argue that America’s actors are stronger than ever and can match up toe to toe with the likes of both Europe and Asia.

The list will be split into two parts: in part one, I delve into the modern world of Hollywood actors with actresses soon to follow in part two.

Part one: Top Ten Actors Working In Hollywood Today

Actor With The Most Potential To Hit It Big: Paddy Considine

Before I begin the list, I want to take a moment to discuss an actor whom I believe has enormous potential. While not American born, British actor Paddy Considine has been in his fair share of American films like In America, »

‘American History X’ Helmer Tony Kaye Goes From ‘Detachment’ to ‘Attachment’

13 December 2011 5:37 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

British director Tony Kaye has had relatively steady, non-mainstream work since famously trying to yank his name off of the powerful, Edward Norton-starring American History X in 1998. After a dispute with the studio, the star recut the film (either to give himself more screentime or to mold the film into more of a commercial feature), and Kaye tried to remove his name from the credits and replace it with the pseudonym ”Humpty-Dumpty.” But, according to unnamed sources, Mr. Dumpty objected, since he himself was trying to remove his name from every Rob Schneider movie ever made.

Now, Variety says that Kaye is circling Attachment, an indie thriller written by Christopher Denham that “centers on a married woman’s one night stand with a student coming back to haunt her when the lover begins to date her daughter and stalk her family.” It’s reported ed that the film will »

American History X Director to Direct new Thriller Attachment

13 December 2011 3:00 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

American History X director Tony Kaye could end up directing a new indie thriller  for W2 Media called Attachment. 

The script for the film was written Christopher Denham, and the story "centers on a married woman's one night stand with a student coming back to haunt her when the lover begins to date her daughter and stalk her family." Don't you hate it when that kind of crap goes down!? I'll just say the married woman should have known better. 

I love the film American History X, I think its one of the most powerful films ever made. Unfortunately I haven't seen any of Kayes other films. Such as Detachment with Adrien Brody, a crime drama called Black Water Transit with Laurence Fishburne. I still trust that Kaye is a solid director even though I haven't seen these other films. Maybe this new film will get some better exposure.

Tony Kaye ("American History X," "Black Water Transit") is in talks to direct the indie thriller "Attachment" at W2 Media says Variety.

Christopher Denham penned the story which centers on a married woman's one night stand with a student coming back to haunt her when the lover begins to date her daughter and stalk her family.

Shooting aims to kick off in the Spring. Kaye's latest film, the Adrien Brody-led "Detachment", will be released by Tribeca Films early next year. »

Tony Kaye To Direct Thriller 'Attachment'

13 December 2011 7:46 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We've said it before, but the post-"American History X" career of director Tony Kaye has been bumpy at best. Not counting the turmoil he went through on the Edward Norton movie, his next films were either ignored ("Lake Of Fire"), stuck in legal limbo ("Black Water Transit") or crucified by critics (his recent high school drama "Detachment"). So who knows what might befall his effort. Kaye is now set to take on "Attachment," a thriller penned by actor Christopher Denham (who wrote and directed the Pov horror flick "Home Movie"). We have to say, the premise sounds pretty rote if not somewhat teen soapy. The story will center on a married woman who has a one night stand with a student, but things get out of hand when he returns, dates her daughter and begins stalking her. We've seen variations on this kind of thing plenty of times before »

American History X Director Tony Kaye To Tackle Attachment

13 December 2011 6:53 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

For a director who has only made one film that was seen by a reasonably wide audience-- and only after he attempted to take his own name off the film and be credited as 'Humpty Dumpty"-- Tony Kaye manages to loom large in the minds of independent film fans, mostly those hoping he'll come back and make something truly great. Since directing American History X and trying to have his name removed from it, Kaye has released the documentary Lake of Fire, and has two completed films still looking for their way to theaters-- the drama Black Water Transit and the teacher-centric film Detachment, which debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year and will be distributed next year by Tribeca Films. Kaye is clearly a particular guy and chooses his projects on his own terms, but I wonder if he's picked his next project simply as a »

Top Five Movie Tattoos As David Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is making way to hit theaters on December 21, I thought it might be fun to take a look at tattoos in movies. In talking with some friends about the idea it was interesting which movie tattoos came to their minds first. Angelina Jolie's in Wanted seemed to be one everyone mentioned and Vin Diesel in xXx was another, both memorable, but neither really stood out to me. I took the question to Facebook where many people responded with four of the five tattoos that made my list along with tattoos from films such as Robert De Niro's tattoos in Cape Fear, Ed Helms' Mike Tyson tat in The Hangover Part II, Ralph Fiennes' back splash in Red Dragon, "Respect" in Nicolas Winding Refn's Pusher, The Rock's sleeve in Faster and the »

Next Factor: Ezra Miller of 'We Need to Talk About Kevin'

5 December 2011 7:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Ezra Miller seems to have the market cornered on troubled and troublemaking teens on the indie movie scene, ever since appearing in 2008's "Afterschool." His career, however, is about to power up with the release of critical darling "We Need to Talk About Kevin," starring Tilda Swinton and John C. Reilly as the parents of a terrifying tot turned Columbine-style killer -- played by Miller, natch.

Age: 18

Hometown: Hoboken, NJ

What He's Done: He was an Internet perv in "Afterschool," a fan of large ladies in "City Island," a gay teen in "Every Day," and a self-styled Hunter S. Thompson journalist in "Beware the Gonzo."

What He's Doing Now: As the Kevin everyone needs to talk about, he creeps out his mom (Tilda Swinton), who wonders if her inability to bond with her child is what led him to become such an effing psycho.

Reminds Us of: He's got the »
