Clip Mania: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Saving Mr. Banks, and More
Happy Friday before the long weekend! With Thor: The Dark World poised to dominate the big screen this weekend, I thought I’d get a jump on the rest of the year with the latest clips. The next huge release (and likely the biggest release of the year) is The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and I’ve attached two clips below for that movie. I’ll also have a clip for Saving Mr. Banks, Oldboy, Out of the Furnace, Nebraska, and Homefront. Lastly, I gathered six clips for The Best Man Holiday.
Two new clips came online for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Combined they show off some of the stars including Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Woody Harrelson. Catching Fire releases November 22nd and is directed by Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend). Please note the second clip takes place after Hemsworth’s interview with Jay Leno so fast forward to 1:24 to get the actual clip.
Saving Mr. Banks released a new clip via their Facebook page to give us another look at Tom Hanks as the iconic Walt Disney. Emma Thompson (Men in Black III) also stars in John Lee Hancock’s (The Blind Side) biographical film about the film adaptation process for Mary Poppins. The movie releases December 13th.
Yet another clip released ahead of Oldboy’s November 27th release. Spike Lee’s (Inside Man) remake of the 2003 South Korean film stars Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene), and Samuel L. Jackson. Check out the latest clip before it releases in three short weeks.
Scott Cooper’s (Crazy Heart) Out of the Furnace released a clip as well. Furnace is the second movie this week to feature Woody Harrelson and it’ll also star Christian Bale and Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone). The thriller will be released December 6th.
A plethora (six, to be exact) of new clips came online for The Best Man Holiday. The sequel to the 1999 comedy, again starring Taye Diggs and Sanaa Lathan, comes out next weekend (November 15th). It’s again directed by Malcolm D. Lee, who is trying to clear his name after doing projects like Scary Movie 5 between Best Man movies. Make sure to watch the six clips!
Although it won’t be a lot of competition, Alexander Payne’s Nebraska will release against The Best Man Holiday next weekend on November 15th. The black-and-white drama stars Bruce Dern (Coming Home) and Will Forte (NBC’s Saturday Night Live). Unfortunately, it’ll start in limited theaters before hopefully expanding. Until then, watch the clip.
Homefront, the third movie to release on November 27th, rounds out this week’s Clip Mania. Homefront stars Jason Statham, James Franco, and Winona Ryder (Black Swan), while putting Gary Fleder (Runaway Jury) in charge of directing. If you’re wondering whether to see the movie or not, watch the new clip!
Have a fabulous three-day weekend!
