Trailer Watch: Jenny Slate in Obvious Child

This apparently hit big at Sundance, and who doesn’t like Jean-Ralphio’s sister on Parks & Rec? Okay, maybe a lot of people, but Jenny Slate is fuckin’ funny. Anyway. Obvious Child is an indie comedy-drama about a young potty-mouth comedian (Slate) who finds out she’s pregnant and… just watch this.

Obvious Child was written and directed by Gillian Robespierre. It hits theaters on June 6, 2014. It’s so indie, its official movie site is on Tumblr. http://dlvr.it/5Qc0jX

Trailer Watch: The Rover theatrical trailer

So the trailer I posted for this earlier in the week was apparently a teaser. (I was a little late to the party on it, too.) But this is a brand new trailer, and hot damn is it good.

The YouTube page for it says that the film is out in New York and LA on June 13, before a “nationwide” release on June 20th now. http://dlvr.it/5QZmxS

Trailer Watch: X-Men: Days of Future Past final trailer

This is the most standard action movie trailer yet for X-Men: Days of Future Past, but also the best overview of the plot of the actual film (not to be confused with the premise/basic set-up of sending Wolvie back in time in order to blah blah blah).

Pretty cool stuff. The movie finally comes out on May 23, 2014. http://dlvr.it/5Q8T9B

Trailer Watch: David Fincher’s Gone Girl

David Fincher made another movie. Gone Girl comes out on October 3rd. http://dlvr.it/5PM3HL

Trailer Watch: Guy Pearce in The Rover

I was absolutely mesmerized by writer-director David Michôd’s Animal Kingdom, and this trailer for his follow-up, The Rover, looks incredibly intense, as well.

The film follows Pearce as he hunts down the gang that stole his car with the help of a wounded man (Robert Pattinson) left behind at the scene.

The film comes out on June 13 in the US, almost certainly in limited release. It was written by Michôd from a story by Michôd and Joel Edgerton, who starred in Animal Kingdom (and Warrior, as well). The film also stars Scoot McNairy (Killing Them Softly). http://dlvr.it/5PKRTl

Multiplex #904: The Manager Who Laughs

The title is, of course, a nod to the 1928 silent film that inspired the Joker from Batman (and which Christopher Nolan was skewing a bit closer to, appearance-wise, in The Dark Knight than to the comics).

It took me so long to decide how to make Norma’s face look, you guys. So long.

Trailer Watch: 22 Jump Street red band trailer

I don’t know anybody who wasn’t already a fan of Clone High and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs who thought 21 Jump Street was going to be any good. But when it was actually pretty great, a sequel was quickly greenlit — and when The LEGO Movie was not just also way better than it had any right to be but a commercial hit, as well, directing duo Chris Miller and Phil Lord were basically anointed the latest Hollywood Golden Boys.

Anyway, so this red band trailer for 22 Jump Street has a lot more to live up to than anything else they’ve done, but what we’ve seen so far seems… well, like a sequel. This trailer basically thumbs its nose at that idea, while at the same time not really showing us anything new and different. We’ll see how it goes on June 13, 2014. http://dlvr.it/5MnfZj
