Clip Mania: Ender’s Game, Oldboy, Thor: The Dark World, and More
While I’m only going to highlight five films – instead of my normal seven or eight – I’m still going for quantity. The five films – Ender’s Game, Oldboy, Thor: The Dark World, The Counselor, and Dallas Buyer’s Club – are all well represented (including Ender’s Game with eight). They’re also all hotly-anticipated movies, so I’d check them out if I was you!
As always, enjoy the weekend!
There are eight – yes eight! – clips I found for the upcoming Ender’s Game. I had one last week, so this blows that out of the water. I’m very excited for this movie, having been a huge fan of the book, and I’m counting down the days until its release on November 1st. Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) directs Asa Butterfield (Hugo), Harrison Ford, and Ben Kingsley.
I have just one clip for Oldboy, but at least it’s an extended one. The clip shows stars Josh Brolin (No Country For Old Men) and Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene). Samuel L. Jackson will also appear in the movie that is a remake made by Spike Lee (Inside Man). The movie will release November 27th.
I also released a clip for Thor: The Dark World last week. I’ve updated it this week with three more. Marvel’s next superhero movie returns Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, and Tom Hiddleston (among others) when it comes out November 8th. Like Ender’s Game, I am very excited for this November release.
The closest-to-be-released movie, Ridley Scott’s The Counselor, released a clip as well. It stars some household names including Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, and Penelope Cruz. The crime drama about a businessman (Fassbender) that gets mixed up in drug trafficking releases next weekend starting October 25th.
Jean-Marc Vallee’s (C.R.A.Z.Y.) Dallas Buyers Club is the only limited movie on the list (although it’ll eventually go wide on November 22nd), but I’d say it has a bunch of excitement behind it. Two new clips, featured above, show off parts of the movie about a man infected with HIV that goes to selling illegal drugs to survive. It’s another one of those based-on-a-true-story movies. It’ll release November 1st (against Ender’s Game) and stars Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto (Requiem for a Dream), and Jennifer Garner (Juno).
Thanks for stopping in. Same time next week!
