The first trailer for director Fredrik Bond’s film Charlie Country has been released online. Shia LaBeouf and Evan Rachel Wood stars as a couple who meet under strange circumstances and have an impossibly strong mutual attraction, much to the chagrin of Wood’s dangerous husband (Mads Mikkelsen). The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to fairly negative reviews, with many likening the pic to a feature-length music video. Bond has made some edits to the pic since Sundance, so it’ll be interesting to see how the finished film stacks up. This trailer highlights the meet-cute of the central couple, Wood’s odd Romanian accent, and Rupert Grint taking lots of drugs.

The film also stars Til Schweiger, James Buckley, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Melissa Leo. Charlie Countryman will be simultaneously released VOD and in theaters on November 15th. Via Yahoo! Movies.

New posters have been released for The Rum Diary and New Year's Eve. The former is kind of cute and almost makes the film look like a light comic spin on Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which is appropriate considering that Hunter S. Thompson was the author of both novels. As for the New Year's Eve poster, it perfectly encapsulates the cynical, greedy reason for the movie's existence. The point isn't to convey a plot, but to jam as many stars into the film as possible in the hopes that you'll like one or two of them enough to see the movie. However, the stars you like will most likely be in the film for probably less than ten minutes total. If you think watching a star you like play a poorly defined character is worth a dollar a minute, then you like wasting money. Hit the jump to check out the posters. The Rum Diary opens October 28th. New Year's Eve opens December 9th. Here's the official synopsis for The Rum Diary: Based on the debut novel by Hunter S. Thompson, “The Rum Diary” tells the increasingly unhinged story of itinerant journalist Paul Kemp (Johnny Depp). Tiring of the noise and madness of New York and the crushing conventions of late Eisenhower-era America, Kemp travels to the pristine island of Puerto Rico to write for a local newspaper, The San Juan Star, run by downtrodden editor Lotterman (Richard Jenkins). Adopting the rum-soaked life of the island, Paul soon becomes obsessed with ...
