Trailer Tuesday (08-24-10)

August 24, 2010

As usual, plenty of nice trailers dropped this week to get you hyped for upcoming films. Here’s a few of the highlights from the latest batch! Enjoy!

Black Swan
From Director Darren Aronofsky, the man that brought us The Wrestler, The Fountain, and Requiem for a Dream, comes the new psychological thriller Black Swan. The film stars Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis as two rival ballet stars and their relationship with each other.


Case 39
Renee Zellweger stars as a social worker who is working to save a girl from a horrible and abusive family situation. As she gets deeper into the case, she finds that the danger is far worse than she could have ever imagined.


Love and Other Drugs
Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway star in a romantic comedy together, and here’s the official synopsis: Hathaway portrays Maggie, an alluring free spirit who won’t let anyone – or anything – tie her down. But she meets her match in Jamie (Gyllenhaal), whose relentless and nearly infallible charm serve him well with the ladies and in the cutthroat world of pharmaceutical sales. Maggie and Jamie’s evolving relationship takes them both by surprise, as they find themselves under the influence of the ultimate drug: love.


Vanishing on 7th Street
This film, starring Hayden Christensen, is premiering at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Here’s the synopsis:
It starts with a power outage. Where once stood living beings are now piles of discarded clothes. The once sunny city is shrouded in blackness. Shadows creep across every surface and whispers echo in the empty streets. Is it some form of enemy attack or a swift judgment from the divine? Each passing day contains fewer daylight hours, and only those who cling to some other form of light can escape the encroaching darkness.

A small group of survivors congregate in an old bar powered by a gas generator. Luke (Hayden Christensen) is a slick TV anchor forced to live by his wits. Paul (John Leguizamo) is a lonely projectionist working in a multiplex theatre. Rosemary (Thandie Newton) is a distraught mother whose baby is missing, and James (Jacob Latimore) is a shotgun-toting kid waiting for his mother to return. With their light sources slowly dying, they must find alternative illumination and a way out of the city. Overcome with paranoia and fear, the group struggles to understand the events that have brought them together.


There it is, folks. Let us know what you think of these trailers! Are you intrigued? Turned off? Psyched?!?

…until next week.
