The Gushing Cinephile: All Trailer Edition
This, the second trailer for David O. Russell’s “American Hustle,” further cements the flick as an Oscar contender across the board. Starring the likes of Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams, and Bradley Cooper all in questionable hairdos and attire. “American Hustle” looks prime to bustle and bruise its way into the thick, top tier of award season.
This flick has been the unfortunate recipient of some negative feedback right out of the gate. Although, it’s only been screened sparsely and has yet to see its North American release, so don’t condemn too harshly. Judging by the trailer, this unorthodox tale of romance looks like quite the thrill ride.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug:
So, as I tweeted on the day this trailer was released, “So…Cumberbatch’s voice in the new trailer for “The Desolation of Smaug” is the greatest thing since I first heard Bane in TDKR,” is still completely true. I cannot wait for this sequel.
Starring Captain Kirk himself, Chris Pine, this reboot seems to be headed in the right direction judging by the trailer.
…this teaser from Comic-Con for the reboot of “Godzilla” is one of the best I’ve ever seen. It does exactly what teasers set out to accomplish and so much more. The voiceover from Oppenheimer himself, the music, imagery, is stunning, disturbing, and insanely awesome. This film just skyrocketed to the top of my most anticipated. Of course I cannot post it seeing as the clip found its way online illegally, but I’m sure if you look hard enough, you’ll uncover it.
Out of the Furnace:
Christian Bale makes his second appearance this week starring alongside Casey Affleck in “Out of the Furnace.” Another film in which Bale looks to deliver an Oscar-worthy performance. Also making an appearance in the trailer is Zoe Saldana, Woody Harrelson, Willem Dafoe, and Sam Shepard.
The Invisible Woman:
Starring the immaculate Ralph Fiennes and the lovely Felicity Jones. This look at the secret relationship between Charles Dickens and his mistress is a must see.
One of the few films I regret not seeing at this year’s TIFF. Starring Steve Coogan and Judi Dench, “Philomena” looks like heartbreaker.
Inside Llewyn Davis:
One of my most anticipated films left this year. “Inside Llewyn Davis” looks like another Coen brothers smash hit.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty:
Could this be a return to form for Ben Stiller?
