Trailer Round-Up: American Hustle, Riddick, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and More
Happy Monday! With today’s Trailer Round-Up, you can see the latest from the past week and weekend. I’ll be giving you the newest for American Hustle, Riddick, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, Kill Your Darlings, Paradise, and About Time.
David O. Russell’s (Silver Linings Playbook) quick follow-up to Silver Linings Playbook releases Christmas Day. Titled American Hustle, the film stars so many great names, including Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and more! Check out the first trailer above.
David Twohy’s newest installment in the Riddick franchise released another Vin Diesel-led trailer. The movie, just titled Riddick, also stars Katee Sackhoff (Sci-Fi’s Battlestar Gallactica) and releases September 6th.
For my money, the best trailer goes to The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Featuring music from the great “Of Monsters and Men” (you should go download them now), the trailer doesn’t feature a lot of talking. But that’s okay. I think it sums up the idea of the existential-like fantasy/drama. It stars and was directed by Ben Stiller, but it also features Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Adam Scott (NBC’s Parks and Recreation), and Sean Penn. The movie releases Christmas Day as well.
Going from completely serious to not-so-much, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa unveiled a new trailer last week. Of course, Johnny Knoxville is involved in the shenanigans. Bad Grandpa will be available for those interested October 25th.
The Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter)-led Sundance darling Kill Your Darlings finally released a short teaser. It is an anticipated movie for myself (and others). It shows Radcliffe is Allen Ginsberg, an American poet, after Lucien Carr (Dane DeHaan) is murdered by David Kammerer (Michael C. Hall). You movie will release in limited theaters October 18th.
Diablo Cody’s directorial debut showed off its first trailer recently, too. Titled Paradise, it is about a woman that loses her faith and runs away to Vegas. Sound promising? Well Julianne Hough (Safe Haven), Russell Brand (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), and Octavia Spencer (The Help) are also in it. The movie will be available in theaters starting October 18th.
Finally, a trailer for About Time surfaced online last week. The romantic comedy most prominently features rom-com specialist Rachel McAdams (The Notebook). Richard Curtis (Love Actually) acted as director for the film that releases November 1st. Check out the trailer above.
Alright that does it for this Trailer Round-Up. Check back tomorrow for the newest poster!
