Trailer Watch: Studio Ghibli’s When Marnie Was There teaser trailer

A teaser trailer of Studio Ghibli’s adaptation of Joan G. Robinson’s When Marnie Was There directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (Arrietty). It’s from Japanese TV, so there’s all kinds of graphics all over the screen, but hopefully a cleaner version will find its way online soon.

The song, by the way, is “Fine on the Outside,” sung by Priscilla Ahn.

Trailer Watch: Bill Murray in St. Vincent

Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd, and Naomi Watts star in writer-director Ted Melfi’s St. Vincent, about a grumpy old man (Murray) who befriends the neighbor kid. There are a lot of familiar tropes in this story, but the dialogue and the cast seem solid enough to get past that. (Or at least it earned a few laughs from me.)

St. Vincent opens on October 24, 2014.
