While the Venice Film Festival is well underway, in Britain it’s been a week of first looks and tantalising trailers, highlighting a promising cinematic calendar as the blockbuster season draws to a close.
David Fincher is no stranger to adapting best selling novels, and the trailers and early stills of his latest page to screen venture, Gone Girl, have raised expectations for its release next month. Alterations have been made to the story under author Gillian Flynn’s supervision, but this new trailer hints at the underlying message of the book, that ultimately not all is as it seems. Gone Girl will be released on the 3rd of October.
Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen co-star in Stephen Daldry’s Trash, which saw it’s first trailer released today. The Working Title film follows three boys working on a rubbish site in Brazil, who fall upon a life changing item that puts them in grave danger. Trash will be released in the UK in January 2015.
Foxcatcher has already received great reviews from early screenings at Cannes and will receive its UK premiere at the BFI London Film Festival in October. Its latest trailer focuses on Steve Carell’s highly motivated, highly sinister millionaire coach John du Pont, who takes Channing Tatum’s disgruntled wrestler under his wing in an obsessive bid to achieve victory. Foxcatcher is released in the UK in November.
Age of Ultron will mark one of the high points of 2015’s bumper blockbuster year, and this week a few new images hit the Internet to remind us that this is the case. As well as stills of Robert Downey Jnr. and Mark Ruffolo’s non-hero personas, we get a look at Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch in the form of Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen. Check out the image below of the two in action.
After a gloomy set of promotional stills last month, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has launched a new set of posters for its new gang of rebels to excite fans in the build up to the film’s release in November.
