Clip Mania: Fifty Shades of Grey, Jupiter Ascending, and More
Happy Friday! Like most Fridays, I’ve got a bunch of new movie clips for you. Also like other weeks, the bulk of these clips involve movies coming out already today. Besides those four (Jupiter Ascending, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, The Voices, and Outcast), there are also clips for Fifty Shades of Grey, Queen of the Desert, and Mr. Holmes.
Check out the clips below!
With just a week to go, the Fifty Shades of Grey mania is upon us. The anticipated erotic thriller, which stars Jamie Dornan (ABC’s Once Upon a Time) and Dakota Johnson (The Social Network), is set to come out next weekend on February 13th just in time for Valentine’s Day. To gear up for its release, check out the first three clips above. Sam Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy) directed the movie.
I’ve also embedded a bunch of new clips for Jupiter Ascending (to go along with this week’s posters and photos). The Wachowski siblings (The Matrix) directed the sci-fi space opera that is out starting today (or last night, technically). If that’s not enough of a reason to go, red-hot actor Channing Tatum stars alongside Mila Kunis may be. The clips are above for you.
The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water is also out this weekend. The sequel to The SpongeBob Movie is again directed by Paul Tiggert and voice stars Tom Kenny and Bill Fagerbakke. To me, this isn’t the most exciting movie on this week’s post; however, the animated movie is sure to attract plenty of families. Therefore, check out the clip above before catching the movie!
A new clip for The Voices – yet another movie out this weekend – was released. Starring Ryan Reynolds, the clip above surely shows off the aftermath of a murder by the main character, Jeff Hickfang (Reynolds). Billed as a horror-comedy, the movie is directed by Marjane Satrapi (Chicken with Plums) and also features Anna Kendrick and Gemma Arteton (Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters). Unlike the others, this one is available in limited theaters.
Werner Herzog’s (Rescue Dawn) biographical film Queen of the Desert is up next. Based on the life of Gertrude Bell (played by Nicole Kidman), the film seems exciting because of its cast that also includes James Franco, Robert Pattinson, and more. As of now, we’re still awaiting a U.S. playdate.
There’s also a clip for Bill Condon’s (The Twilight series) next film Mr. Holmes. This one is notable because the great Ian McKellen plays an older Sherlock Holmes. Personally, I can’t think of a better casting choice. The crime drama is set in the 1940s and will follow Holmes as he reflects on his past. It seems like a fresh take on Sherlock Holmes and I’m looking forward to its release (when it gets one, of course).
Lastly, there’s a clip for Nick Powell’s directorial debut Outcast. The action-adventure movie stars both Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen (Jumper), which is quite the combination if you think about it, and comes out this weekend as well. Check it out above and look for the movie in limited theaters.
