My prediction is that Rooney Mara will kill it. Because she’s Rooney Mara and that’s what she effing does.

Trailer: Zero Dark Thirty (2012)

I can’t stop watching this trailer. I think I’ve seen it a dozen times.

Follow up to previous post, The Heat (2013)

Take This Waltz (Dir. Sarah Polley)
When Margot (Michelle Williams), 28, meets Daniel (Luke Kirby), their chemistry is intense and immediate. But Margot suppresses her sudden attraction; she is happily married to Lou (Seth Rogen), a cookbook writer. When Margot learns that Daniel lives across the street from them, the certainty about her domestic life shatters. She and Daniel steal moments throughout the steaming Toronto summer, their eroticism heightened by their restraint. Swelteringly hot, bright and colorful like a bowl of fruit, TAKE THIS WALTZ leads us, laughing, through the familiar, but uncharted question of what long‐term relationships do to love, sex, and our images of ourselves.

Little Birds

I’ve seen this plot done so many times but I never get tired of it. I think it’s because coming-of-age stories such as this, when done well, rest on the weight of individual characters. Lord knows Juno Temple (Dirty Girl, Kaboom, and most notably, Atonement) can act her ass off. Not to mention, I love her full name: Juno Violet Temple. That name deserves to be in a ’70s-era rock band but I’ll take it.

I’m somewhat perplexed by the addition of Leslie Mann — not in a bad way. I’m used to seeing her in comedies. But after seeing Funny People it’s easy to see she’s talented at deepening the complexities of her characters.

This is director Elgin James’ first major writing/directing project. I’m sensing a similar directing style as Catherine Hardwicke (Thirteen, Lords of Dogtown, Twilight), who I enjoy also.

Little Birds has a U.S. release date for June.

New red-band trailer for American Reunion
American Reunion has released a new red-band trailer, previewing a few more snippets of new footage ahead of the gang’s big get-together in a few weeks’ time. This is probably the most consistently funny of all the trailers released so far, striking a nice balance between the gross-out gags and quarter-life crises.

Looks like time has been cruel in the creativity department.

Interesting subject matter for Sofia Coppola. Interesting role for Emma Watson. Hmm…

First Look: Jude Law & Keira Knightley in Joe Wright’s Anna Kerina | Collider

Joe Wright and Keira Knightley go amazingly well together.

(Side note: should be Anna Karenina based on the Tolstoy novel)

Still from This is Forty (2012), written and directed by Judd Apatow.
The story is a spin-off of Knocked Up and will center around the financial/personal conflicts between Pete and Debbie. I watched Apatow’s episode of Inside the Actors’ Studio, and he said he strives to make his stories very “human,” which is something you can easily see in his other films.
