You’re Not You – Official Trailer #1 – Hilary Swank, Emmy Rossum Movie HD

youre-not-youYou’re Not You is a forthcoming drama about a terminally ill woman and the aimless young woman who becomes her caregiver, with Hilary Swank and Emmy Rossum in the respective roles.

The film has a large cast which also includes Ali Larter, Josh Duhamel, Marcia Gay Harden, Julian McMahon, Jason Ritter, Frances Fisher and Ernie Hudson, but has yet to be given a release date in either the UK or US.

However, I wouldn’t hold your breath as, based on the trailer, it ramps up the “pass the sickbag” level to maximum due to the syrupy sweet nature.

If you must, check out the trailer for You’re Not You below:

Foxcatcher – Official Teaser Trailer #3 – Channing Tatum, Steve Carell Drama HD

foxcatcherFoxcatcher is a new drama based on the true story of Mark Schultz (played by Channing Tatum), an Olympic wrestler whose relationship with mentor John du Pont (Steve Carell) and brother Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) would lead to unlikely circumstances.

A new teaser has been released and Foxcatcher also stars Anthony Michael Hall, Sienna Miller and Vanessa Redgrave . It looks well worth a watch and now has a UK release date, on January 9th 2015, almost two months after the US release date.

Seventh Son – Official Trailer #2 – Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore Fantasy Adventure HD

seventh-sonSeventh Son stars Jeff Bridges as John Gregory, the seventh son of a seventh son and also the local spook who has protected he country from witches, boggarts, ghouls and all manner of things that go bump in the night.

However John is not young anymore, and has been seeking an apprentice to carry on his trade. Most have failed to survive. The last hope is a young farmer’s son named Thomas Ward (Ben Barnes). Will he survive the training to become the spook that so many others couldn’t? Should he trust the girl with pointy shoes? How can Thomas stand a chance against Mother Malkin (Julianne Moore), the most dangerous witch in the county?

Also starring Kit Harington, Djimon Hounsou and Olivia Williams, this trailer really didn’t work for me. Bridges just sounds like he’s channelling the mumbling, moronic, murdering loser he played in the 1993 remake of The Vanishing, which was dreadful compared to the superb original (and from the same director!)

Seventh Son is out on February 6th 2015 in the UK and I’ll be giving it a wide berth. Jan and Feb are usually the months when the crap films get dumped on the big screen, so that explains a lot.

REC 4 Apocalypse – Official Trailer #2 – Manuela Velasco Horror HD

Also starring Héctor Colomé, María Alfonsa Rosso, Mariano Venancio and directed again by Jaume Balagueró (Rec, Rec 2), REC 4 Apocalypse still hasn’t yet got a UK release date, but it’s out at Halloween in Spain, so expect the same over here.

The Rewrite – Official Trailer #1 – Hugh Grant, Marisa Tomei Romantic Comedy HD

the-rewriteThe Rewrite stars Hugh Grant in a romantic comedy, amazingly enough, as Keith Michaels, an Oscar-winning writer in a slump who leaves Hollywood to teach screenwriting at a college on the East Coast, where he falls for a single mom taking classes there, namely Marisa Tomei.

Directed by Campbell Scott and also starring Allison Janney, J.K. Simmons and Bella Heathcote, this looks like it could be worth a watch for Tomei, at least, even if it’s not the most original concept.

The Rewrite is released in the UK on October 8th.

The Pyramid – Official Trailer #1 – James Buckley – Horror Movie HD

the-pyramidThe Pyramid is what’s found by a team of U.S. archaeologists, which is buried deep beneath the Egyptian desert. As they search the pyramid’s depths, they become hopelessly lost in its dark and endless catacombs. Searching for a way out, they become desperate to seek daylight again. They come to realize they aren’t just trapped, they are being hunted.

It’s yet another “everyone’s trapped and we’ll run around screaming” horror film, which are coming thick and fast, but it looks okay.

The film stars The InbetweenersJames Buckley, plus Ashley Hinshaw and Denis O’Hare.

The Pyramid is unearthed (see what I did there? Eh? Eh? Is this thing on?) in the UK on December 5th.

Rosewater – Official Trailer #1 (2014) – Gael García Bernal, Jon Stewart Drama HD

rosewaterRosewater features Gael García Bernal as a journalist who is detained in Iran for more than 100 days and brutally interrogated in prison by a man called Rosewater, played by The Bridge‘s Kim Bodnia.

Written and directed by The Daily Show‘s Jon Stewart, I was looking forward anyway to see his creation after he took several months off from the show last year to make this, and to know that it also stars Kim Bodnia? This is a must!

Rosewater doesn’t yet have a UK release date but is out in the US on November 7th.

Exists – Official Trailer #1 – Eduardo Sánchez Horror Movie HD

existsExists is a horror movie set in the woods where, for five friends, it was a chance for a summer getaway – a weekend of camping in the Texas Big Thicket. But visions of a carefree vacation are shattered with an accident on a dark and desolate country road. In the wake of the accident, a bloodcurdling force of nature is unleashed – something not exactly human, but not completely animal – an urban legend come to terrifying life…and seeking murderous revenge.

Directed by Eduardo Sánchez, and starring Dora Madison Burge, Samuel Davis, Denise Williamson, Roger Edwards, Chris Osborn, plus Brian Steele as the Sasquatch, this does seem rather ‘seen it all before’, but then the director was also responsible for 1999′s supposedly ‘groundbreaking’ The Blair Witch Project, which I thought was dire. Hence, you know what to expect, as it’s basically the same.

Exists doesn’t yet have a UK release date, but is out in the US on October 24th.

Trash – Official UK Trailer #1 – Rooney Mara Movie HD

trashTrash-picking goes on in the slums of Rio, and two boys find a wallet in amongst the daily detritus of their local dump. However, little do they imagine that their lives are about to change forever. But when the local police show up, offering a handsome reward for the wallet’s return, the boys, Rafael and Gardo, realize that what they’ve found must be important, since all the bad guys are after their blood in order to get it.

Directed by Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot), it stars Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen and Wagner Moura.

Trash looks rather like formulaic… ‘trash’, but if you want something that’s bound to be feel-good nonsense, then it’s released in the UK on January 30th.
