‘Dark Night’ Trailer and Poster: Tim Sutton’s Dreamlike Film About Gun Violence Arrives in Theaters Next Month

10 January 2017 1:56 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A year after premiering at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, Tim Sutton’s “Dark Night” is set to arrive in theaters courtesy of Cinelicious Pics. An elliptical quasi-documentary, the film brings to mind Gus Van Sant’s “Elephant” (and, for that matter, Alan Clarke’s “Elephant”) as it explores the day leading up to a tragedy that’s modeled in part after the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado of 2012. Find the film’s trailer and poster below.

The trailer offers glimpses of the nonprofessional actors who make up Sutton’s cast and keeps viewers guessing as to who among them might be plotting violence as day slowly turns into night. Hélène Louvart (“Pina,” “The Beaches of Agnes”) shot “Dark Night,” and her cinematography is its most distinctive, arresting element — all mood and atmosphere, the film relies on »

Freida Pinto And Babou Ceesay Fight Against Oppression In Powerful First Trailer For Guerrilla

10 January 2017 1:54 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Freida Pinto and Babou Ceesay prepare to ignite a rebellion in the powerful first trailer for Guerrilla.

Hatched by Oscar-winning screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) and Idris Elba, who co-stars in the six-part drama opposite Freida Pinto and Babou Ceesay, Guerrilla is rooted in one of the politically volatile times in UK history. Written and executive produced by Ridley – he’ll also helm the first two episodes – Pinto assumes the role of Jas Mitra who, along with her significant other Marcus (Ceesay) wage war against the system. Their target? The Black Power Desk, a counter-intelligence unit established by the British government at the time to quell black activism by any means necessary, often resulting in fiery clashes between police forces and the black community as the latter fought for equal rights.

Their brave efforts laid the foundation for one of the most historic movements in the country’s history, »

Freida Pinto and Babou Ceesay star as two activists in London planning to free a political prisoner, with Elba taking on a supporting role. Their exploits are no doubt dangerous and thrilling, so much so that Pinto channels Patricia Arquette in “True Romance” with an anachronistic homage: “We’re so fucking cool,” she tells Ceesay. The two eventually set their sights on on the Black Power Desk, an actual unit whose goal was to stamp out black activism.
