Trailer Round-Up: The Counselor, Inside Llewyn Davis, Getaway, and More
To start the week off, I’ll be embedding the newest trailers for The Counselor, Inside Llewyn Davis, Getaway, Parkland, Pompeii, The Book Thief, Vampire Academy, and The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete. All the trailers, descriptions, and production info can be found below.
Tune in tomorrow for the newest posters!
Ridley Scott’s (Prometheus) next movie released a new UK trailer. I previously thought this film was under-the-radar, but it is officially all over my radar now. Starring Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class), Javier Bardem (Skyfall), and more, The Counselor is definitely a looker. Check it out before the October 25 release date.
Inside Llewyn Davis, the newest from the Coen brothers (True Grit), released its second trailer. The movie doesn’t release until December (6th to be exact) and, by the looks of the trailer, should have some great music. It stars Oscar Isaac (For Greater Glory), Carey Mulligan (The Great Gatsby), and Justin Timberlake.
Before this weekend’s wide release, a final Getaway trailer hit theaters and the web. The unlikely duo of Ethan Hawke (The Purge) and Selena Gomez (Spring Breakers) mixed with the overdone concept has me skeptical about the movie. However, I won’t truly know until August 30th when it releases. It’s directed by Courtney Solomon (Dungeons & Dragons).
The first trailer for Parkland also made it online. I’ve previously reported on pictures and a poster, so it’s nice to finally see moving footage. The movie recounts one of the most traumatic moments in U.S. history – the assassination of John F. Kennedy. However, it looks to focus on the turmoil at Parkland Hospital right after the tragedy more than the act itself. It’s directed by Peter Landesman and stars Billy Bob Thornton (Bad Santa), Zac Efron (17 Again), and Paul Giamatti (The Illusionist)
Paul W.S. Anderson’s (Mortal Kombat) Pompeii, starring Kit Harington (HBO’s Game of Thrones) and Kiefer Sutherland (FOX’s 24), finally released some footage. Although it’s just a teaser, it’s exciting to see something. The movie won’t release until February 21, 2014, so expect a more in-depth trailer in the coming months.
Geoffrey Rush (The King’s Speech) and Emily Watson’s (Breaking the Waves) next film The Book Thief also released a trailer. It’s directed by Brian Percival (PBS’s Downton Abbey) and releases November 15th of this year.
The Weinstein Company’s Vampire Academy, a fantasy adventure film based on a popular book series, released a trailer as well. It stars lesser-knowns like Zoey Deutch (Beautiful Creatures) and Lucy Fry (TeenNick’s Lightning Point) and will release February 14, 2014. If you want to know a little about the movie, check out the trailer.
Last, but not least, is The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete. The newest trailer highlights the drama in the drama-filled story about a 13 and 9-year-old that are on their own after their mother is scooped up by the police. Anthony Mackie (Pain & Gain) Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (The Bourne Identity), and Jennifer Hudson play the older characters, while newcomers Skylan Brooks and Ethan Dizon take on the younger roles. George Tillman, Jr. (Notorious) directs the film that will play starting October 11th.
