Clip Mania: The Maze Runner, The Boxtrolls, The Drop, and More
Welcome to the start of the weekend. Here at Film Equals, that means we have a new batch of clips for you! Below you can find three clips for The Maze Runner, one for The Boxtrolls and The Drop, six for This Is Where I Leave You, three for The Skeleton Twins, two for Two Night Stand, and one for Big Game.
Enjoy them all below.
With just a week until it releases, three more clips came online for The Maze Runner. The film adaptation of James Dashner’s novel stars Dylan O’Brien (High Road), Will Poulter (We’re the Millers), and more when it comes out September 19th. Wes Ball directed the movie and you can check out the clips above.
A week after The Maze Runner comes the stop-motion film The Boxtrolls. Above you can get a glimpse at a scene from the movie that voice stars names like Elle Fanning (Super 8), Ben Kingsley, and Toni Collette (Little Miss Sunshine). For those that don’t know, Laika (the company behind Coraline and ParaNorman) is in charge of this film with Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi directing.
Out starting today (in limited theaters) is Michael R. Roskam’s (Bullhead) crime drama The Drop. Like always, I’ve included a clip for those potentially on the fence about seeing the new film. It stars James Gandolfini (which is reason enough to see the movie), Tom Hardy, and Noomi Rapace (Prometheus). Check it out above.
Quantity-wise, the prize goes to Shawn Levy’s (The Internship) adaptation of This Is Where I Leave You. This ensemble comedy has some great names involved – like Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, and Kathryn Hahn (Afternoon Delight) – and comes out alongside The Maze Runner next weekend on September 19th. All six clips are above if you’d like to watch them.
I also embedded three clips for a drama titled The Skeleton Twins. With a duo like Bill Hader (Hot Rod) and Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), how could you not be interested in this movie? Craig Johnson’s film played at Sundance this year but will get a theatrical release starting today as well. Check out the clip above and the movie in limited theaters.
Next up is Two Night Stand. Personally, the premise seems a little to rom-com-y for me; however, Miles Teller (The Spectacular Now) has me somewhat interested. Max Nichols’ film unveiled two new clips ahead of its release on September 26th, so you can check them out above if you want to know more.
Today’s outlier is no doubt the Samuel L. Jackson-starring Big Game. It is the only movie that doesn’t release in September (in fact, it doesn’t have a U.S. release date at all right now). That doesn’t mean the film is irrelevant, though. If you want to see the first official clip for Jalmari Helander’s film (which coincided with its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival), it is above!
Have a great weekend!
