Clip Mania: Noah, Muppets Most Wanted, Rio 2, and More
Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but I need this weekend more than anything. With this weekend’s helping of March Madness, try to make some time for movies. Before you hit up the theater this weekend, check out the newest clips from movies releasing this weekend, including Muppets Most Wanted and Nymphomaniac: Volume I. I also have clips for Noah, Rio 2, Neighbors, Only Lovers Left Alive, and Cesar Chavez.
Although the movie doesn’t come out until next weekend, a new clip did release for Darren Aronofsky’s (Black Swan) Noah. The movie stars, most notably, Russell Crowe and Emma Watson. If you’d like to see more about the film, check out our full coverage here. If not, check out the clip above and the movie on March 28th.
You won’t have to wait long to see Muppets Most Wanted. In fact, James Bobins’ sequel (to his movie The Muppets) is already available now! This weekend’s movie sadly doesn’t return any of its original human characters, but at least it adds names like Tina Fey and Ricky Gervais. If you’d like to see three of the scenes from the comedy, check them out above. Some are extended looks at things we’ve seen in the trailers, while some are new altogether. Enjoy!
Two clips also released this week for Rio 2. A bunch of the voice stars (including Jesse Eisenberg, Anne Hathaway, and Jamie Foxx) return, while Bruno Mars adds his voice. Carlos Saldanha will again direct the film and it is scheduled to come out on April 11th.
Neighbors, a frat comedy by Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), may not seem like it has a connection to the aforementioned Muppets Most Wanted, but it most definitely does. Stoller himself wrote Most Wanted, so he’s been busy lately! Above is a clip that was released for his comedy that stars Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids), and Zac Efron. The film releases on May 9th.
The second movie with a clip that releases this weekend is Lars von Trier’s (Melancholia) Nymphomaniac: Volume I. The sex addiction film is just one of two films set to release this year (part two comes out on April 18th). The film stars Charlotte Gainsbourg (Melancholia), Shia LaBeouf, and Uma Thurman. Volume I is available starting today.
Jim Jarmusch’s (Broken Flowers) vampire romance film Only Lovers Left Alive also unveiled the first clip I’ve seen. You may not recognize the name; however, you will recognize the two stars: Tilda Swinton (The Grand Budapest Hotel) and Tom Hiddleston. This film releases on April 11th.
Last, but not least, is a new clip for Cesar Chavez. I’d initially heard a lot about this film a few months ago, but things have calmed down recently. It almost seems weird the movie releases already next weekend on March 28th. Diego Luna directs the film, and as you can tell from the clip, Michael Pena takes on the role of Cesar Chavez. Check out the clip above!
Have a fantastic weekend!
