Trailer Round-Up: Bad Words, The Railway Man, and More
Welcome back to the week folks. In this week’s rendition of Trailer Round-Up, I’ve collected the usual seven trailers but have chose movies that aren’t quite as mainstream. I wish I could say I was doing it to broaden our horizons, but it’s actually because this week was light on the huge releases. Still, check out the latest trailers for Bad Words, The Railway Man, Small Time, A Promise, Breathe In, Don Peyote, and Fading Gigolo.
Scroll for the videos and information about the production (like stars, director, and release date).
Jason Bateman’s (Netflix’s Arrested Development) directorial debut Bad Words probably isn’t on the top of every person’s most anticipated list, but the comedy looks to be gaining some steam. It stars him, Allison Janney (The Help), and Rachael Harris (Diary of a Wimpy Kid), among others. Check out the latest trailer before the March 14th limited release.
Jonathan Teplitzky’s The Railway Man has more of the traditional Hollywood names behind it – with actors like Colin Firth (The King’s Speech) and Nicole Kidman (Moulin Rouge!) – but still doesn’t have a U.S. release date. That didn’t stop it from releasing the latest trailer, which I’d watch above.
Small Time, a film by Joel Surnow (writer of Fox’s 24), is releasing a film this year and a trailer has made its way online. It most notably stars Dean Norris (AMC’s Breaking Bad) but also features Christopher Meloni (Man of Steel). The drama will release sometime in April 2014.
Patrice Leconte’s (Man on the Train) romance-drama A Promise also unveiled a new trailer. Like the others, you may not have heard about this movie, but names like Rebecca Hall (The Prestige) and Alan Rickman (Harry Potter) should get you excited. The movie – set in Germany – has played around Europe but is still awaiting a U.S. release date.
Breathe In is another one of those movies with the names behind it. Those names include Felicity Jones (Like Crazy), Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone), and Guy Pearce (Iron Man 3). Although Drake Doremus’ (Like Crazy) film has played at some film festivals this past year, it still is awaiting a cinematic release date. Stay tuned.
Michael Canzoniero and Dan Fogler’s drama Don Peyote showed off a new trailer ahead of this year’s release. Unfortunately, we don’t have a set date for the movie that stars Anne Hathaway, Jay Baruchel (This is the End), Josh Duhamel (Transformers), and Topher Grace (Spider-Man 3). Watch the trailer if you get a chance.
The final trailer goes to the first comedy (Fading Gigolo) of the week. Actresses Sofia Vergara (ABC’s Modern Family) and Sharon Stone (Casino) join actors Woody Allen and Liev Schreiber (Goon) in the movie about a Don Juan wannabe trying to make more money. Co-star John Turturro (Passione) directed the movie that releases in limited theaters April 18th.
