Trailer Watch: Tom Hardy and Shia in John Hillcoat’s Lawless

A new trailer for Lawless just hit the internet thanks to Yahoo!, and while I don’t really think this is a good trailer, but it probably isn’t the last one we’ll see. I’m on board because of the director (John Hillcoat, The Proposition, The Road) and the cast — yes, even Shia.

Lawless stars Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman and Mia Wasikowska. Nick Cave (The Proposition) adapted the screenplay from the novel “The Wettest County in the World” by Matt Bondurant.

Trailer Watch: The third Dark Knight Rises trailer

Up until the apparently obligatory (these days) tag at the end, this is a pretty moody, ominous trailer. I feel like studios force trailer cutters to add those things at the end. For lighter action flicks, sometimes it can be a fun little “hey also” to put in at the end, but here, it’s just tacked on, and considering we’ve already seen the flying whatever-it-is (I guess they just call it “the Bat”) earlier in the trailer, it’s kind of pointless.

But whatever. The movie itself looks as promising as it always has — I’m guessing everybody reading this is already on-board or not, and nothing Warner Brothers can show to us now is really gonna sway that. The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters on July 20th, 2012.

Trailer Watch: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy theatrical trailer

This is my most anticipated, must-see movie of 2011′s Oscarbait season:

If you haven’t been keeping track of this movie, be sure to watch the earlier international and (domestic) teaser trailers I’ve posed before.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is based on the John LeCarré novel. Adapted for the screen by Bridget O’Connor and Peter Straughan, and directed by Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In), this $30 million film version boasts an incredible cast, including Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Mark Strong, Ciarán Hinds, Benedict Cumberbatch, Toby Jones, and John Hurt.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy hits theaters (in the US) on December 9th. It opens in the UK next weekend, on September 16th.

Trailer Watch: A new Tinker, Tailer, Soldier Spy trailer

Let the Right One In director Tomas Alfredson’s follow-up, an adaptation of the 1974 John Le Carré spy novel, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Gary Oldman stars as a man pulled out of retirement to lead a hunt for a Soviet mole in the top ranks of MI6, the British Secret Intelligence Service. Between this and the first trailer, this has shot to the top of my must-see list this winter — largely due to the incredible cast, which also includes Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Tom Hardy, Ciarán Hinds, John Hurt, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

It’s out in the UK on September 16, 2011, and in US theaters on November 18, with late fall and winter releases for most of the rest of the world.
