A French trailer has been released for Bong Joon-ho's Snowpiercer, and it provides our best look at the movie yet. The story is set in a new ice age caused by a failed experiment to stop global warming that killed virtually all life on the planet. The sole survivors live on a train called Snowpiercer—powered by a perpetual machine—who struggle with the class system implemented on the train. This trailer provides not only a clearer picture of the plot, but also tons of visual effects we haven't seen before. It also has Alison Pill firing an automatic weapon, so that's fun too. Overall, Snowpiercer looks like an exhilarating ride, but we'll have to see if we get the original South Korean cut or a shorter, dumbed-down version The Weinstein Company wants for U.S. distribution. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, Ewen Bremner, Octavia Spencer, Kang-ho Song, and Ko Asung. Snowpiercer currently does not have a U.S. release date. The film premiered in Bong's native South Korea last month, and was a big hit at the box office. Via The Film Stage.
Last month, we showed you a brief trailer for David Cronenberg's adaptation of Don DeLillo's Cosmopolis, which featured a potentially surprising and exciting turn from star Robert Pattinson. In the film, Pattinson plays a newlywed billionaire who ends up losing his bride and his billions in a single day. Two full trailers have now gone online, and Cronenberg is the star of both. Pattinson still looks good, but these trailers show off a David Cronenberg surrealism we haven't seen in some time. And judging by these trailers, it's very good to have it back. Hit the jump to check out the trailers. The film also stars Sarah Gadon, Kevin Durand, Jay Baruchel, Samantha Morton, Juliette Binoche, Paul Giamatti, and Mathieu Amalric. Cosmopolis will premiere next month at the Cannes Film Festival. Via Rope of Silicon and Twitch.
A French trailer has gone online for the sci-fi romantic-thriller Upside Down starring Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst. We showed you some images from the movie last month, but they were mostly right side-up and didn't convey the dizzying and impressive visuals. The trailer gives a better look at the gorgeous set design and I love the use of the upside down effect. However, the story seems a little rote. The characters live in two worlds that are connected but on top of each other and each with its own gravitation pull. No one from one world can cross over to the other or even communicate with someone on the other side, but Sturgess and Dunst's characters fall in love and break the rule. I hope the plot is a little more than just a love story across borders where the only twist is having the border be on an unconventional axis. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. No U.S. release date has been announced. Trailer via JimSturgessOnline via Hey U Guys. Veuillez installer Flash Player pour lire la vidéo
I've been corrupted by my own knowledge of pop culture. I should look at this trailer for We Need to Talk about Kevin and acknowledge that it's a creepy-looking drama and I'm glad there's positive buzz on the movie. Unfortunately, all I can think is, "So this is a live-action movie about Stewie Griffin?" The trailer makes it look like the kid is trying to kill his mother (Tilda Swinton), but the story is about the kid (Ezra Miller) going on a killing spree at his high school and the mother trying to work through her grief by writing letters to her estranged husband (John C. Reilly). I'd much rather watch that than Family Guy. Hit the jump to watch the French trailer. We Need to Talk about Kevin played at this year's Cannes Film Festival and North American audiences will get their first look at the movie when it plays at the Toronto International Film Festival. The movie opens domestically on December 2nd. Trailer via The Playlist: We Need to Talk About Kevin Bande-annonce by toutlecine ---
