Clip Mania: Need for Speed, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Bad Words, and More
Today at Film Equals you can find our usual post that’ll highlight the latest clips available from last Friday to this one. Specifically, you’ll see clips for upcoming movies like Need for Speed, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Bad Words, Repentance, and Rob The Mob. You’ll also get a couple clips for limited released movies that came out today, including In Secret and Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me.
As the Need for Speed film adaptation speeds forward, they’ve released a clip to show off another part of the movie. The entire film includes Aaron Paul (AMC’s Breaking Bad), Kid Cudi, and Dominic Cooper (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter). Scott Waugh (Act or Valor) is in charge of direction and his movie will release on March 14th.
Two clips also came out for Wes Anderson’s (Moonrise Kingdom) The Grand Budapest Hotel. I won’t list the whole cast, but I can tell you it is very impressive. The comedy includes names like Ralph Fiennes (Harry Potter), Edward Norton (Fight Club), Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton (Moonrise Kingdom), and more. The movie comes out March 7th.
Jason Bateman’s directorial debut, Bad Words, also showed off a clip. Unlike the others, it is explicitly red-band…so viewer beware. Bateman himself stars in the comedy with Alison Janney (Juno) and Kathryn Hahn (Afternoon Delight). Watch the clip above before the movie releases in limited theaters on March 14th.
The first movie (of two) for this weekend is In Secret. Charlie Stratton’s film has stars like Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), and Tom Felton (Harry Potter) in it. I’m curious to see how this movie does with critics, and I’m hopeful for a wider release in the coming weeks.
The underreported film Repentance also showed off two clips. Before today, I didn’t know the film actually existed. But with a cast that includes Forest Whitaker (Lee Daniels’ The Butler) and Anthony Mackie (Pain & Gain), I’m surprised I hadn’t. The horror thriller, which is directed by Philippe Caland (Ripple Effect), will come out on February 28th.
Another movie I hadn’t heard much about was Rob the Mob. Ray Romano, Michael Pitt (HBO’s Boardwalk Empire), and Andy Garcia (Ocean’s Eleven) headline the cast for the crime drama by Raymond De Felitta (City Island). The New York-based movie releases on March 15th.
The final clip to show off is also for the final movie that came out today. The documentary Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me may not be a recognizable name, but please hear me out. It’s about 87-year-old Broadway star Elaine Stritch and her rise and stay at the top. It sounds like a bit of a human interest/passion project, which definitely has its audiences. If you are interested in her work or the movie, watch the clip and find this movie this weekend.
As always, have a great weekend!
