Hello, boys and girls, once again it's time we take a peek at everyone's favorite part of going to the movies: coming attractions.
Directed by: Emilio Estevez
Starring: Harry Belafonte, Nick Cannon, Emilio Estevez, Laurence Fishburne, Heather Graham, Anthony Hopkins, Helen Hunt, Joshua Jackson, Ashton Kutcher, Shia LaBeouf, Lindsay Lohan, William H. Macy, Demi Moore, Freddy Rodriguez, Martin Sheen, Christian Slater, Sharon Stone and Elijah Wood
Estevez's directorial career has been pretty lukewarm to date, but this looks to be his most ambitious and interesting effort. Don't be fooled by the film's title, this will be more about the lives who were affected by Robert Kennedy and his assassination, and not a straight biography on the would-be presidential candidate. A great cast doesn't always make for a great movie, but the last time a large cast tackled a Kennedy project it was Oliver Stone's masterpiece, JFK. Still, I wouldn't place any bets on history repeating itself.
The History Boys
Directed by: Nicholas Hytner
Starring: Richard Griffiths, Frances de la Tour, Stephen Campbell Moore, Samuel Anderson
I knew History Boyswas being adapted from the stage to the big screen, but I did not know the award-winning cast and director were doing the honors. Fox Searchlight are no dummies, and they let you know right off the bat this is the case. The question is, will the magic conjured on Broadway work at the cineplex? Hard to tell, but it doesn't look too shabby so far. The most jarring image of the trailer is probably the Brandoesque ballooning of Richard Griffith. Griffith has never been considered lanky, but somebody tell the guy to eat some carrots. The Harry Potter series needs him for at least three other movies.
Directed by: William Friedkin
Starring: Ashley Judd, Michael Shannon and Harry Connick Jr.
I don't know why, but there is something about this trailer that has my curiosity peaked. I know Friedkin's career is not what it once was, but a horror movie about bugs that live inside your body? And what the heck is Ashley Judd doing in this movie? There is something interesting going on here, because for reasons I cannot explain, I want to see this. It just might be one of those movies that really get under your skin.
