Trailer Watch: David Fincher’s Gone Girl

David Fincher made another movie. Gone Girl comes out on October 3rd.

Trailer Watch: Guy Pearce in The Rover

I was absolutely mesmerized by writer-director David Michôd’s Animal Kingdom, and this trailer for his follow-up, The Rover, looks incredibly intense, as well.

The film follows Pearce as he hunts down the gang that stole his car with the help of a wounded man (Robert Pattinson) left behind at the scene.

The film comes out on June 13 in the US, almost certainly in limited release. It was written by Michôd from a story by Michôd and Joel Edgerton, who starred in Animal Kingdom (and Warrior, as well). The film also stars Scoot McNairy (Killing Them Softly).

Trailer Watch: Martin McDonagh’s Seven Psychopaths trailer

Martin McDonagh (In Bruges) is finally back with another black comedy. This one, Seven Psychopaths, is about “a struggling screenwriter (Colin Farrell) who inadvertently becomes entangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his oddball friends (Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell) kidnap a gangster’s (Woody Harrelson) beloved Shih Tzu.” The premise is a little goofy, but with these three guys in the lead, how could I not be on board?

Abbie Cornish, Tom Waits, Olga Kurylenko and Zeljko Ivanek co-star in the October 12th release.

Trailer Watch: Andrew Dominik’s Killing Them Softly

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford director Andrew Dominik is back, once again with Brad Pitt in the leading role. In Killing Them Softly, an adaptation Cogan’s Trade by George V. Higgins, Pitt stars as a mob enforcer charged with tracking down a pair of small-time crooks (Scoot McNairy and Ben Mendelsohn) who’ve robbed a mob card game.

The film premiered at Cannes earlier this year, where it was nominated for the Palme d’Or and scored some positive reviews.

Ray Liotta, Richard Jenkins, Sam Shepard and James Gandolfini co-star in the October 19th release.
