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!
