The Gushing Cinephile: August 5, 2013
Let’s pretend that you all noticed The Gushing Cinephile’s absence last week and just move on, shall we? It is the first Monday of August and we are exactly one month away from the start of the Toronto International Film Festival! In case you missed it, late last month TIFF unveiled the first two batches of films that will be playing at the festival. You can click on the TIFF button in the main menu at the top of this page to check out all the films released thus far. The Cinema Monster will be continuing to post every film announced henceforth and any other TIFF news up until the start of the festival. Then, I will be attending a bunch of screenings at the festival itself and post reviews, Q and A’s, and any news deemed significant daily. Or, you can follow The Cinema Monster on twitter (@cinema_monster) and Facebook for up to the minute news regarding TIFF.
That’s enough about TIFF, let’s get into The Gushing Cinephile and check out the most important movie news released in the past two weeks. Remember, you can check out past editions of The Gushing Cinephile by clicking the news button in the main menu at the top of this page.
X-Men: Days of Future Past: Viral Campaign:
First up, Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” started its viral marketing campaign earlier this week. Released was the first images of the Sentinel robots and an introductory video regarding Trask Industries. You can check out both below. It is the sequel to 2010′s smash-hit “X-Men: First Class” and is scheduled for release on May 23, 2014.
Next, we get our first, albeit rough synopsis for Academy Award winner Wally Pfister’s directorial debut “Transcendence” and a behind-the-scenes image. Pfister has collaborated with director Christopher Nolan on many occasions and won an Oscar for his cinematography in “Inception.” Check out the brief synopsis and the cool pic below featuring Rebecca Hall and Paul Bettany.
“Will Caster, forefather of A.I., has his consciousness uploaded onto the internet. Once there, is it really Will who is interacting with humanity in order to make things better, or a darker sinister clone bent on the termination of the world as we know it?”
Now, below you’ll find a brand new clip from Lars Von Trier’s upcoming film “Nymphomaniac” staring Shia LaBeouf and a sexy picture as well.
Finally, we have a trio of new trailers. The first is a rather quick teaser that does nothing more than frustrate and add hype to the new season of “Sherlock.” Then we have the first trailer for David O. Russell’s follow up to “Silver Linings Playbook.” “American Hustle.” Last, but certainly not least is the first trailer for “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” staring Ben Stiller. This trailer really caught me off guard, it looks phenomenal.

Charlotte Gainsbourough will do anything for Lars, won’t she?
Yup, and I wouldn’t have it any other way :).
I’m not complaining either!!
Neither am I complaining!
Good stuff! I’m surprised at just how much I responded to the Walter Mitty trailer. Potential, potential!
Thanks! I know, right? It kind of came out of nowhere. Hopefully it’s just as good as the trailer makes it seem.
Great edition of TGC. I’m still very jealous that you get to go to TIFF. Again, have lots of fun!
Liking this viral campaign for Future Past and really looking forward to Transcendence and Nymphomaniac.
Secret Life of Walter Mitty surprised me as well. AMAZING trailer and it instantly shot up near the top of my “most anticipated” list. But, American Hustle is now my most anticipated of the latter part of 2013. That cast is to die for.
Thanks! I’ll be sure to keep you posted on TIFF!
The Trask promotional video is phenomenal. Can’t wait for Nympho and Transcendence! The clip is so tense and uncomfortable, I love it.
American Hustle should be one of the best films of the year. TSLOWM looks epic, so atmospheric, should be a good one!
Yes to everything! LOL :)
Good stuff man, I think Von Trier’s found his newest muse with Charlotte Gainsbourg.
Thanks a bunch! She’s also been his muse LOL.
Nymphomaniac looks interesting. I like maniacs and certainly love nymphos. Great combo.
LOL, same here. Should be a good one!
I’m determined to head to TO to watch at least one (two, since I did do a 5.5 hour drive) movie on one of the weekends..haha! Hopefully get to link it with Rigor Mortis. :) Can’t wait to see what other movies you post about that will be showing there :)
Nymphomaniac certainly looks interesting. I’m not a huge fan of Shia Leboeuf but the premise looks cool. Plus, CAN’T WAIT for Sherlock Season 3. I just binge watched the first 2 seasons and I’m totally addicted :)
Look forward to seeing you in TO! Hope you get to catch Rigor Mortis and at least a couple of films. I love The Beef! Can’t wait to see him team up with Trier for Nympho, should be a good one!
As for Sherlock, well. I think I might be the only male Cumberbitch :).
Deal is how long I stay,right? I’m not sure my friend would want to see just TIFF, I’d probably want to do some bakery hopping and some shopping at Pacific Mall or something like that.. haha! Get some awesome Chinese food. Stock up on some Asian flicks ;) Haven’t been to TO since Feb so it should be fun!
LOL, sounds awesome!
