Tremendous Trailer Trash Tuesday: 2013 TIFF Edition



So up in Canada or as I like to call it America’s hat, The TIFF has been going on.  That’s the Toronto International Film Festival for all you film noobs.  Somehow, we did not have enough funds in our 3 guys treasure room to fund a trip to this festival.  However, fear not, you can check out the trailers from some films generating some buzz at TIFF this year.  O and if you want to check out all the low down on TIFF you can find the official website right about here.  Before I forget, everyone at the festival loved the upcoming Gravity but I have already shown the trailers for that film.




August: Osage County:  A huge highly talented ensemble cast in this film about strong women from a dysfunctional family.  The family’s matriarch is Violet Weston (Meryl Streep).  Word out of the festival is that this film will get Streep and oscar nod.  The whole family returns home to Oklahoma to deal with a family crisis and there clothes are not the only baggage they bring with them.  Then a twister comes and everyone dies the end.  Ok maybe I made up that last part.  This film is going to get a limited release in the good old USA on Christmas so that it will be eligible for awards season.  Here is hoping that you are luck enough to have the film playing near you.



Prisoners:  Jake Gyllenhaal, Viola Davis, Hugh Jackman and Terrance Howard star in this thriller about police and family members looking for two missing girls.  This one looks like a tension filled take no prisoners thriller.  The Director Denis Villeneuve has a second film Enemy starring Jake Gyllenhaal entered at the festival as well but I could not find a trailer for that one.   Anyhow this film will be released on September 2oth which is actually not too far away.



Dallas Buyers Club:  Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto star in this film about A hard partying Texas electrician who comes down with AIDS, back in the Reagan years when they were calling it gay cancer.  McConaughey went all method actor in portraying Ron Woodroof on this film based on a true story.   This looks like an intense drama with a great performance by McConaughey.  I look forward to checking out this film when it is released on November 1st.




Labor Day:  Josh Brolin stars as an escaped convict on the run.  He hides out in depressed single mom Adele’s house (Kate Winslet).  Apparently single mom and son start to become attached to this escaped prisoner.  This is a film by Jason Reitman but word on the street is that it is a lot darker than some of his previous films (Juno).  This film is scheduled for a January 31st release.  Yes I know that is a clip from the film and not a trailer.  Also sorry about the ad before the clip.



So there is our 3 guys round up for TIFF 2013.  If one of his the lotto or something like that we might report live from this festival next year.  Do any of these trailers strike your fancy?  Did you attend the TIFF?  If so we would love to hear about it.

    Hey Adam,

    That Labor Day film was shot at Whittier Farm in Sutton, MA. remember when I posted they were doing a film up there, well Labor Day is it. Here is the link to the original post.

    • Adam September 10, 2013, 4:18 pm

      No Shit, I used to go up there with my grandparents to buy veggies. That is pretty cool and probably the most exciting thing to ever happen in Sutton.

  • Sean September 10, 2013, 5:24 pm

    Streep will probably get her 70th nomination but I think Cate Blanchett may have already won Best Actress. In terms of Sutton being the site for the Jason Reitman film, it may be the most exciting cinematic development to hit a Central Mass town since this: http://www.rutlandusathemovie.com/

      Sean now I totally want to watch that

    I just got back from TIFF! Saw two of the four movies you guys spotlight – Prisoners and Dallas Buyers Club. Have to say that though McConaughey gives a great performance, most of my praise goes to Jared Leto who was the heart of the film. Prisoners was very good, very suspenseful and intense for the majority of the film (prepare to gasp a number of times) though I think it loses some momentum the last 30 minutes (it’s a 2.5h movie). The final scene the filmmaker uses is great though.

    • Adam September 10, 2013, 7:09 pm

      Shala, I knew that someone I read was going but I couldn’t recall who. Will have to head over and check up some updates. What other films did you mange to check out? Feel free to drop a link.

    • Adam September 10, 2013, 7:09 pm

      Did you see Enemy?

  • ckckred September 10, 2013, 5:57 pm

    Matthew McConaughey has been on a roll lately so I’m excited to see Dallas Buyers Club. Labor Day looks interesting as well.

    • Adam September 10, 2013, 7:10 pm

      He has been a roll. Maybe his new kid told him no more lame rom-coms.

  • Chris September 10, 2013, 6:23 pm

    Really looking forward to Prisoners out of this lot. That one looks like it’s gonna be great, and I’ve already heard good things about it.

  • Adam September 10, 2013, 7:12 pm

    Chris that trailer does look pretty intense. I like that cast as well.

  • Pete Turner (@ilovethatfilm) September 11, 2013, 1:02 am

    Hoping for big things from Prisoners and Labor Day!

    • Adam September 12, 2013, 12:07 pm

      Pete, those both look pretty interesting to me.

  • Kim September 11, 2013, 6:23 am

    I was just reading yesterday that 2 of the 3 you mentioned was from Quebec directors or something and its all promoted here. I’d be interested to see those.
    Oh wait, I am going to TIFF this weekend. But to see The Wind Rises and Rigor Mortis! YAY! Can’t wait :)
    Definitely need to win the loto to go though. So expensive for one movie….

    Hey Adam its Geekinkef here your Canadian touque (that’s a winter hat American cousins). I’ve seen trailers for all but Dallas Buyers club and none interest me. Recently liked Descent 2 and Joshua Tree:1951 both on Netflix. Esp check out the JT 1951 Facebook page on this James Dean biopic.

    • Adam September 12, 2013, 12:15 pm

      Mark Descent 2 sounds like something my wife would be into watching. That Joshua Tree 1951 film looks interesting, I will have to try and give it a watch. Thanks for the heads up. I have actually been to Joshua Tree National Park to go camping. It was crazy hot, I got sunburned real good, saw a rattle snake and a couple of scorpions. I never plan on camping there again and yes we went in April.

    Jared Leto = Oscar. That is all :)

    • Adam September 12, 2013, 12:09 pm

      Tyson, I met him once at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas. He was hanging out with Fred Durst from Limp Bizkit. They are both Tom Cruise size, However their body guards were huge.

      • Tyson Carter September 12, 2013, 12:34 pm

        No way. I met him after his band played and he was friendly and handsome as fuck. No bodyguards to stop me from touching him. Was a fight with my wife as to who got to touch him first ;)

        • Adam September 12, 2013, 1:03 pm

          I am not saying he is not a cool guy and those very well could have been Fred Durst’s bodyguards. Who knows maybe they just happened to be standing next to each other in the line to cash in chips.

  • Joe September 11, 2013, 6:09 pm

    Hey Adam,
    Looks like some serious star-power movies here. Nice to see McConaughey continuing to do movies with some substance rather than movies with Kate Hudson. Should be an interesting Oscars this year with some serious contenders. Any early predictions?

    • Adam September 12, 2013, 12:10 pm

      Joe I am going with James Franco winning best supporting actor for his role in Spring Breakers, just kidding those old coots in the Academy will never pick that.

  • Evan Crean September 12, 2013, 4:21 am

    I’m very excited to see Gravity since I love sci-fi. Also looking forward to Prisoners because it has great actors and a compelling story. Not thrilled about the length though. Supposedly it’s 2.5 hours. It better make good use of that time. Matthew McConaughey appears to be on a roll with all kinds of interesting parts, so Dallas Buyers Club is another one I’ll probably see. Despite the local ties to MA, I’m not all that jazzed about Labor Day, especially since I’m not a huge Josh Brolin fan. Maybe it will be a pleasant surprise.

    • Adam September 12, 2013, 12:12 pm

      Not a huge Brolin fan? But what about The Goonies? Or to a lesser degree No Country for Old Men. I also thought he was the best part of that horrible Men In Black 3.
