This past week has been light on the news front and heavy on exciting new trailers. Without further ado, we bring you a roundup of movie news from the last seven days.
With the successful run of Netflix’s original TV series refusing to slow down, a move into movies was inevitable, and the announcement of a partnership to release a sequel to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon has come alongside the On Demand’s latest deal with Adam Sandler.
Netflix will play the exclusive host to four upcoming films starring the comedian, whose questionable catalogue of recent years still doesn’t tarnish his ability to make a lot of money.
Hotly discussed this week has been the new trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice. Joaquin Phoenix returns to work with Anderson after a triumphant turn in The Master, and heads a blinding cast including Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson and Benicio del Toro in this drug soaked 70’s story of a man searching for a former girlfriend. Embodying Anderson’s tastes for heady aesthetics, violence and sinister comedy, this will undoubtedly be a hit for fans. Inherent Vice will be in British cinemas in January.
Stunning visions of other worlds and a few more plot details make up the fourth trailer for Interstellar. Featuring a lot more of the destinations that Matthew McConaughey’s rescue team visit in hopes of saving civilisation, the new glance at Christopher Nolan’s latest shows complications in the mission that force some difficult decisions for the film’s leads. Interstellar will be with us on the 7th of November.
A tense new trailer for Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper was released today. Bradley Cooper plays Chris Kyle, the real life navy SEAL whose record number of kills made him the most lethal sniper in America. Co-starring Sienna Miller and Luke Grimes, the film set for release in January.
