Clip Mania: Gone Girl, The Boxtrolls, Dracula Untold, and More
Happy Friday everyone! With this weekend’s release, I thought I’d take a little bit of time to update you on some of the newest movie clips outside of this weekend (minus The Boxtrolls and The Equalizer which debuts this weekend). Below you’ll find at least one clip for Gone Girl, Dracula Untold, Stretch, White Bird in a Blizzard, and The Best of Me.
The first clip for the hotly-anticipated Gone Girl adaptation made its way online. I would highly suggested binge-reading the book (penned by the same screenwriter as the movie, Gillian Flynn) before the movie comes out next weekend on October 3rd. The movie stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike (The World’s End) and, most importantly in my opinion, is directed by David Fincher (The Social Network). Check out the clip above.
I found the first clip (the first clip I’ve seen at least) for Laika’s next production. Titled The Boxtrolls, the stop-motion film looks to be one of this year’s bests when it comes out this weekend already! As for voice talent, the movie features Elle Fanning (Super 8), Ben Kingsley, and Nick Frost (The World’s End). For those wondering, the movie is directed by Graham Annable and Anthony Stacchi.
I also found the first two clips I’ve seen for Dracula Untold. Starring Luke Evans (The Hobbit) as the iconic character, both clips give a glimpse into the film. I still have reservations about Gary Shore’s fantasy-action film but I probably will end up seeing the movie come October 10th. Check out both clips above if you’re at all interested.
Also out this weekend is the Antoine Fuqua-Denzel Washington pic The Equalizer. The Training Day duo is back at it this weekend alongside The Boxtrolls and now has two more clips to watch. I would categorize this as a movie I’m cautiously optimistic about, but we’ll ultimately see the final result this weekend.
On the surface, it looks like we have a whole lot for Joe Carnahan’s (The Grey) next film, Stretch. However, upon further review, most of the new clips are really short. Still, it is exciting to see something (anything) for the anticipated action-comedy-thriller. We don’t have a release date yet for the movie that stars Jessica Alba, Norman Reedus (AMC’s The Walking Dead), and Chris Pine, though.
The Shailene Woodley-fronted thriller White Bird in a Blizzard also released a new clip. This one, however, is an international (subtitled) red-band glimpse (no pun intended) at the movie. Blizzard also stars Eva Green (300: Rise of an Empire) and hits theaters October 24th. The movie is directed by Gregg Araki (Kaboom) and the new clip is available above.
Finally, I have a new clip for The Best of Me as well. The latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation stars James Marsden (X-Men) and Michelle Monaghan (Source Code). Coming out October 17th, the romance is directed by Michael Hoffman (The Last Station). If you’re interested in the movie, check out the clip!
Have a great weekend!
