Clip Mania: Gone Girl, The Judge, Men, Women, and Children, and More
Happy Friday everyone! As we hit the weekend, I’ve got a few new looks for you. Like always, I’ve got a few movies releasing this weekend (the hotly-anticipated Gone Girl along with Jason Reitman’s Men, Women, and Children). The award for most new clips undoubtedly goes to The Judge. Outside of those three, below you can find new clip(s) for Son of a Gun, ’71, Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead, and The Babadook.
I can hardly think of any movie I’m more excited to see than David Fincher’s (The Social Network) thriller Gone Girl. Based on Gillian Flynn’s (well-deservingly) popular novel, the movie stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike (The World’s End) as the Dunne family. If you’d like to see Affleck’s character struggle with his innocence, the two clips above are for you. Whether you see the clips or not, make sure to check out this movie starting today.
The award for quantity definitely goes to The Judge. If you’d like to see practically the whole movie, start up above. In The Judge, you’ll see Robert Downey, Jr. as the star with Robert Duvall (Broken Trail) playing his on-trial father. David Dobkin’s (Wedding Crashers) drama hits theaters next weekend on October 10th.
I’ve also got a Facebook-inspired clip for Men, Women, and Children. I categorize this movie with Gone Girl because both movies come out this weekend (although Men, Women, and Children technically released on Wednesday). Either way, check out the clip for the movie that stars Adam Sandler, Jennifer Garner (Draft Day), and more above. The movie is directed by Jason Reitman (Juno).
I also found a clip for Son of a Gun starring Ewan McGregor (Beginners) and Brenton Thwaites (The Giver). I’m not as familiar with this film but I am still excited to see what it has to offer. Julius Avery’s crime thriller is unfortunately still awaiting a U.S. playdate.
I’ve also included two clips for Yann Demange’s historical drama ’71. Jack O’Connell (who was fabulous in this year’s Starred Up and is set to make waves in December with Unbroken) stars in the movie as an abandoned British soldier. Check out the clips above because the movie is still awaiting a U.S. release.
There have been a lot of sequels this year but how has Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead not been celebrated like it should have been? Good thing I’m here to show off a new clip. Tommy Wirkola (who, yes, directed the original) is back for seconds with Martin Starr (Starz’s Party Down) as the biggest star. You should definitely check out the original movie before this one releases October 7th (on VOD) and October 10th (limited theaters).
While Dead Snow 2 may be a cross between horror and comedy, the last clip definitely can’t say the same. The Babadook, as it is called, is a horror film directed by Jennifer Kent and starring Essie Davis (The Matrix Revolutions). If you’re into horror movies, perhaps you should give the new clip a shot before the movie receives a U.S. date.
Thanks for stopping in. Come back next week!
