Clip Mania: Jupiter Ascending, Mortdecai, Black Sea, and More
Hello everyone and welcome to the start of the weekend. To tout upcoming releases, there are new clips for Mortdecai, Black Sea, Son of a Gun, The Humbling, and The Atticus Institute (all of which come out this weekend). Future releases, like Jupiter Ascending and Trash, also debuted multiple new clips. Genre-wise, there is a lot to offer this week as three different countries are represented in everything from a space opera to an erotic comedy.
Three new clips for The Wachowskis’ (The Matrix) sci-fi opera Jupiter Ascending made their way online before the movie releases (finally) in a couple weeks. I say “finally” because the movie was delayed from last summer until February 6th. Check out the clips above to see stars Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis in action.
One of this weekend’s biggest releases, David Koepp’s (Premium Rush) Mortdecai, also uploaded a new clip. The movie stars Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, and Olivia Munn. The film adaptation opens in wide release this weekend, so check out the clip if you’re on the fence about seeing the movie.
In limited release this weekend is the movie Black Sea. Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland) directs the submarine thriller that involves an attempt to retrieve gold from a sunken Nazi submarine. As the clip shows, it’s not just a deep sea drama, instead it’s an action thriller. As for talent, the movie most notably stars Jude Law.
Back to Ewan McGregor we go with a new clip for the Australian film Son of a Gun. McGregor is joined by Brenton Thwaites (The Giver) in the crime thriller. Julius Avery’s film has quite a bit of potential and seems to be doing decent critically so far. Check out the clip before seeing the movie in limited theaters in the U.S. starting today.
Two new clips released for Trash as well. Trash, for those that don’t know, stars Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen. The British film is directed by Stephen Daldry (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close) and based on Andy Mulligan’s novel of the same name. The clips above give you a better look of the adventure drama.
Barry Levinson’s (Rain Man) latest film, The Humbling, also comes out in limited theaters this weekend. Like the others, it debuted a clip in anticipation for its release. The Humbling changes up genres and is technically considered an erotic comedy. Al Pacino is the biggest name involved in the project but the cast also includes Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha) and Kyra Sedgwick (TNT’s The Closer). The clip is above for you.
Lastly, The Atticus Institute (yet another release this weekend) changes it up even more with a clip for the horror thriller. I admittedly probably won’t see this movie but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth checking out. In fact, from what I saw of the above clip, I was creeped out. Writer Chris Sparling directed the movie that stars William Mapother (ABC’s Lost). If you dare, the clip is above for you.
Have a great weekend!
