This may be the best collection of trailers we have put together in a long time. Be forewarned, some of these are red band trailers. So if you are susceptible to coming down with a touch of the vapors you may want to proceed with caution.
Runner, Runner: Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake, star in this online poker thriller. After getting hosed by Affleck in an online poker game, college student Timberlake travels to Costa Rica in an attempt to track him down and get his cash back. Nice to see Affleck playing a bad guy in this one and there are crocodiles or maybe alligators, I can’t tell, but I am pretty sure they eat people. Look for Runner Runner to bust the house when it ante up’s on September 27th.
Filth: James McAvoy and Imogen Poots star in this film about an out of control cop who goes on a rampage around Christmas in the hopes of getting a promotion and winning back his wife and daughter. This looks to me like a mix of Trainspotting and The Bad Lieutenant. That is probably due to the fact that Irvine Welsh wrote both the novel this is based on and Trainspotting. Wait this film also comes out on September 27th, looks like a busy weekend at the cinemaplex for a lot of folks.
The To Do List: Aubrey Plaza, Bill Hader, Rachel Bilson and Andy Samberg star in this raunchy coming of age teen comedy. A high achieving book worm (Plaza) attempts to become sexual experienced prior to heading off to college. This film was written and directed by Maggie Carey, wife of Bill Hader. As soon as I saw this film starred Aubrey Plaza I decided I was going to be giving it a watch. Horrifying parents everywhere, this R rated film opens on July 26th.
Ain’t Them Bodies Saints: Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck and Ben Foster star in this Terrence Malick film. Just kidding this movie is actually written and directed by David Lowery. Affleck takes the fall for his wife after she kills a cop. He then escapes from prison and makes his way across hot as hell Texas in an attempt to reunite with his wife and his daughter that he has never seen. This film won a Cinematography and producers award at Cannes and was also nominated for the Grand Prize Jury award. Look forward to seeing if this film lives up to the hype on August 16th.
I told you we had a sweet set of trailers for you to check out this week didn’t I? So which of these look interesting to you? To be honest I think I will probably watch all four of these films when they hit theaters.
