Trailer Round-Up: Machete Kills, Nebraska, Grace of Monaco, and More
Welcome to the beginning of the week. If you need a boost, I’ve got a few trailers for you. In terms of Trailer Round-Ups, this week is a little weaker. However, maybe these are diamonds in the rough because while they lack name recognition, some of these films are poised to be sleeper hits (if I had to guess). Below you’ll find trailers for Machete Kills (red band), Nebraska, Grace of Monaco, Enemy, Snowpiercer, Blue is the Warmest Color, and The Last Days on Mars.
A red-band trailer for the upcoming Machete Kills released and its about what you can expect. It’s got the Machete look to it and we can expect the sequel to push the limit. It returns director Robert Rodriguez and star Danny Trejo. Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson will also appear in the movie that is set to release October 11th.
Alexander Payne’s (The Descendants) next film Nebraska released a dry-humored trailer before this past weekend. It stars Bruce Dern (Coming Home) and Will Forte (NBC’s Saturday Night Live). As the trailer points out, it’ll be about a man trying to track down his money, despite everyone’s reservations. It’ll release in limited theaters starting November 15th.
The French-American biography Grace of Monaco (directed by Olivier Dahan) also unveiled a trailer. Starring Nicole Kidman (Stoker), Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs), and Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon), the movie tells the story of Hollywood star Grace Kelly’s crisis. The Weinstein Company will be distributing the movie that releases November 27th.
Although Denis Villeneuve just released Prisoners, that’s not his only film making the rounds. It’s pretty unusual for a director to do this, but it’s the case with Enemy (which played at the Toronto International Film Festival this year). Just like Prisoners, Enemy stars Jake Gyllenhaal, but also has Melanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds). The movie doesn’t have a release date in the U.S. yet, but I’m sure it’ll release next year.
A subtitled international trailer for Bong Joon-ho’s (Mother) Snowpiercer also hit the Internet last week. The sci-fi film mostly noticeably stars Chris Evans (Captain America: The First Avenger). While it’s already released in some markets, a U.S. date is still forthcoming.
Abdellatif Kechiche’s Blue is the Warmest Color, which won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, released its first trailer. The NC-17 movie is about a lesbian couple’s relationship, but I haven’t been able to figure out much more than that. It’ll hit limited theaters October 25th.
Ruairi Robinson’s The Last Days on Mars, a movie which hit UK theaters a couple days ago, released a trailer as well. It won’t make it to the U.S. until December 6th (in limited theaters). As you can tell in the trailer, Liev Schreiber (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) is the biggest draw. The story focuses on a group of astronauts in a whole lot of trouble on Mars. To be honest, it sounds like a pretty unoriginal idea (look at this year’s Stranded and Europa Report for similar loglines). However, you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, right?
Thanks for stopping by this week for the latest Trailer Round-Up.
