The Gushing Cinephile: July 1, 2013

2013-06-30 16.22.21

Yes, that’s Benedict Cumberbatch leading off this week’s edition of The Gushing Cinephile, just for a good laugh. Well, welcome back! I’ll try to keep the dialogue to a minimum, as it is a long weekend here in Canada and I’m assuming those living here are a bit hungover. First off, let’s pretend you all noticed that I did not post this weekend. The reason being is my, let’s call it, trimming of daily posting. It has become apparent that creating quality, meaningful posts each day is wearing me thin. So, taking out weekends, at least for now, allows me time to recuperate and scribe better posts. Not a big deal, thought I’d just let you all know. Let’s get started, shall we?

I’d like to reiterate that The Cinema Monster is finally on Twitter and Facebook! If you can follow @cinema_monster, that would be extremely helpful. I personally added and tweeted at everyone on my blogroll so please follow back :) . You can also like the Facebook page through the link below. Or, if you so choose, can like both accounts on the right side of the website.

All right, first up, a plethora of images, albeit somewhat promotional, of Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah.” The pictures star Russell Crowe, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, and Ray Winestone. The film is a dramatic retelling of the Biblical tale of Noah. Check out the pics below.


Okay, next up, the first teaser trailer for Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated “The Counselor.” The Film stars Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Javier Bardem, and other big-name stars, as you’ll figure out from the trailer.

Following that, the first trailer for “Breathe In” starring Guy Pearce and the radiant Felicity Jones. Directed by Drake Doremus, who also stood behind the camera for the 2011 hit “Like Crazy.” However, it does seem like he is taking a much darker, cynical path with this effort. Still, looks fantastic.

Finally, the first clip was released this past week for Lars Von Trier’s next outing, “Nymphomaniac.” The title speaks for itself, if not, the clip will.

That’ll do it for this week’s news wrap-up. If you have any comments or questions, please post them below. Also, don’t forget to follow The Cinema Monster on Facebook and Twitter, it’ll really help me out. Okay all, have a great week!

  1. Cool post! I’m very excited for Noah and The Counselor. Although I’ll have to wait until I’m home to see the trailers because I’m at work right now.

  2. Good stuff!!

  3. Great post! I just missed Breathe In at Edinburgh film fest but I heard some bad things about it. Maybe I’m wrong though!

  4. Definitely looking forward to The Counselor, since it has two of my favorite actors working today: Brad Pitt and Javier Bardem. Hoping Noah will be good too. It’s Aronofsky, so I’m sure it will. :)

    • Same here, should be a good one. Pitt and Bardem are also two of my current favs, but I’ll throw in Fassbender as a show-stopper as well. I’m a little weary of Noah, but like you said, it’s Aronofsky, so should be awesome.

      • The pictures kinda make it look a little like an action movie, which is…weird. The story has almost zero potential for action. Unless thousands of drowning people is considered action.

      • LOL, so true. I trust Aronofsky, but I’m still a bit worried. Hopefully he can out his style and talent to good use.

  5. Awesome photos of Noah. I stole them and posted them on my own site (crediting you of course!) lol. Thanks for bringing them to my attention.

  6. Finally watched the clips. I had already seen the teaser for The Counselor. Still awesome. That cast is one of my favorites ever. So much talent right there!

    Breathe In looks great! And that Nymphomaniac clip didn’t do much for me but I’m still very anxious about that one!

    • Agree with you 100% about The Counselor, should be great.

      I hadn’t heard of Breathe In till recently, still looks awesome. The Nympho clip wasn’t great but really intrigued me further, can’t wait to check it out.

  7. Those Noah pictures are awesome!
    I’m excited for The Counselor, the cast is just incredible. I’m hoping Diaz knocks this one out of the park, she has the baitiest part of the bunch.

  8. I love this guy right now! He is awesome in Sherlock and Into Darkness (not to mention creepy in The Hobbit). My Entertainment News Website:
