Trailer Watch: Gregg Araki’s White Bird in a Blizzard

22 August 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Here we have the first official trailer from Magnolia Pictures for Gregg Araki’s White Bird in a Blizzard, his first film since 2010′s old-school-wacky Kaboom. By all accounts White Bird is a return to the more somberly melodramatic terrain of teen sexuality and lingering trauma of his 2004 apex Mysterious Skin. The film film hits on demand/iTunes on September 25th, with theatrical release following on October 24th. You can also take this opportunity to catch up with Brandon Harris’ 2011 interview with Araki. »

New White Bird In A Blizzard Trailer: Shailene Woodley Tackles Raging Hormones and a Missing Mother

21 August 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Magnolia Pictures has released a new White Bird in a Blizzard trailer for director Gregg Araki’s (Kaboom) sexually charged drama.  Based on the Laura Kasichke novel of the same name, the story takes place in the 1980s and stars Shailene Woodley as a young woman relishing her newfound sexuality whose life is upended when her beautiful, enigmatic mother (Eva Green) suddenly goes missing.  Green has made a habit lately of turning in regularly scene-stealing work, and it appears that she tackles another slightly unhinged character here while Woodley displays her swell ability to lay out her emotions onscreen. Hit the jump to watch the new White Bird in a Blizzard trailer.  The film also stars Christopher MeloniGabourey SidibeThomas Jane, and Angela Basset.  White Bird in a Blizzard will be released on iTunes and VOD on September 25th and in theaters on October 24th. Trailer via Magnolia Pictures. »

Watch: Shailene Woodley in New Trailer for 'White Bird in a Blizzard'

21 August 2014 10:26 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Before premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, we saw an otherworldly teaser for White Bird in a Blizzard, the drama starring Shailene Woodley (Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars), directed by Gregg Araki (Smiley Face). Now the film is poised for release this fall, and the first full trailer has arrived, and it paints a much more conventional picture. Woodley plays Kat Connors, a teenage girl who feels relief from her repressed adolescence when her beautiful homemaking mother (Eva Green) suddenly disappears. But that feeling doesn't last long as she realizes just how much she needed her mother to keep order in her life. Here's the first full trailer for Gregg Araki's White Bird in a Blizzard, originally from Apple: And here's a different international trailer for the Sundance selected film from YouTube: White Bird in a Blizzard is written and directed by Gregg Araki (Smiley Face, Kaboom).

Sundance: Gregg Araki On His 'White Bird,' Working With Shailene Woodley and Eva Green, and His Favorite Movies of 2013

23 January 2014 11:57 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Gregg Araki is no stranger to The Sundance Film Festival. "100 times," he laughed when asked how many times he's come to Park City. "I was emailing with Rick Linklater before I came and he’s totally the all-time king. He’s gotta be in the teens. I think this is my eighth film in the festival?" "White Bird in a Blizzard" -- which premiered at Sundance Monday night -- is actually Araki's ninth film at the festival following "Kaboom" (2011), "Smiley Face" (2007), "Mysterious Skin" (2005), "Splendor" (1999), "Nowhere" (1997), "The Doom Generation" (1995), "Totally F***ed Up" (1994), and "The Living End" (1992).  And it falls comfortably into that list.  Sexy and hilarious and brutal and haunting all at once, "White Bird" is based on Laura Kasischke's book of the same name. Set in the late 1980s, it follows teenage Kat (Shailene Woodley, continuing to never fail) as she comes of age amidst the disappearance of »

Review: Shailene Woodley and Eva Green spark in disappointing 'White Bird in a Blizzard'

22 January 2014 2:24 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Park City - Sex, death, neon lights, more sex, body-image statements undercut by the number of perfect torsos on display, new-wave pop, more sex... it looks an awful lot like we're in a Gregg Araki movie. And so we are, though for all those trash-ulous trademarks, "White Bird in a Blizzard" feels less like one than most. A campily erotic coming-of-age murder-mystery tale -- a pretty conventional genre for Araki, the man behind "Mysterious Skin," "Kaboom" and a host of 90s queer curiosities -- this adaptation of Laura Kasischke's allegedly more stable novel promises some exciting variations to the enfant terrible's freaky »

Sundance Film Review: ‘White Bird in a Blizzard’

21 January 2014 9:46 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To say that Gregg Araki’s bigscreen version of “White Bird in a Blizzard” isn’t quite what one imagined when reading the Laura Kasischke novel is like complaining that Picasso’s “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon” doesn’t capture the models who posed for it. With the exception of Tim Burton, few American directors have maintained a stronger auteurial hold on their careers than Araki, who seizes on “White Bird” as a chance to explore familiar issues of body image, sexual awakening and extreme family dysfunction with his trademark mix of uneasy seduce-and-repel tactics. It’s naughty, campy and wildly uneven — “a film by Gregg Araki,” in other words, with all the commercial limitations that implies.

Whereas Kasischke’s eloquent novel was loosely inspired by a true story, speculating on a Midwest housewife’s sudden disappearance, Araki’s often-clunky adaptation edges the material into a hyper-stylized parallel dimension, where the »
