Trailer Round-Up: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Horrible Bosses 2, and More
After the holiday weekend, we’re back at it with seven new trailers from this past week. The most notable ones are for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Horrible Bosses 2, and Foxcatacher. However, other upcoming releases like All Is By My Side, St. Vincent, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, and Before I Go to Sleep.
Check out the trailers below!
A special Fourth of July trailer released for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. The true fireworks, if you will, hit on July 11th when the movie finally releases. Matt Reeves’ (Cloverfield) sci-fi action film brings in new blood, like Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, and Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty), but it returns Andy Serkis. Check out the final trailer above.
Sean Anders’ (That’s My Boy) Horrible Bosses 2 kicked off its marketing this past week. Of the things released, the most exciting was the first teaser trailer. It shows us all the people returning (including Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, and Jamie Foxx). The plot isn’t shown much in the trailer, but we’ll find out more between now and November 26th when it releases.
To me, the most exciting trailer was for Foxcatcher. Bennett Miller’s (Moneyball) next sports drama, as of now, is an early Oscar favorite. Obviously, a lot can change between now and November 14th when it releases. Still, check out the newest trailer for the movie that stars Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, and Mark Ruffalo.
John Ridley’s (Cold Around the Heart) Jimi Hendrix biopic, All Is By My Side, also has some exciting new footage. Andre 3000 (of the hip-hop group Outkast) stars as Hendrix alongside Hayley Atwell (Captain America: The First Avenger) and Imogen Poots (28 Weeks Later). If you’re excited for this movie, keep checking for a U.S. release date.
The Weinstein Company is gearing up for the release of St. Vincent in October. Theodore Melfi’s comedy-drama stars one of this weekend’s stars (Melissa McCarthy) as well as Bill Murray, Naomi Watts (The Impossible), and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids). The premise – a drunken war vet (Murray) that tries to help out a single mother (McCarthy) – doesn’t seem the best, but it’s Bill Murray! We’ll see for sure on October 24th.
Ned Benson’s three-part film The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby is quite the project. For those that didn’t know, the movies will tell the same story but from different point-of-views. Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) and James McAvoy will be the two love interests in the film and I’m excited after the debut trailer. The three-parter (titled Him, Her, and Them) comes out September 26th.
The film adaptation of Before I Go to Sleep is on the horizon as well. To get a look at the film, check out the trailer. Rowan Joffe’s (Brighton Rock) mystery-thriller has a great cast – one that includes Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth, and Mark Strong (John Carter) – and could be quite the winner when it comes out September 12th. Watch the trailer above.
