Trailer Watch: The Rover theatrical trailer

So the trailer I posted for this earlier in the week was apparently a teaser. (I was a little late to the party on it, too.) But this is a brand new trailer, and hot damn is it good.

The YouTube page for it says that the film is out in New York and LA on June 13, before a “nationwide” release on June 20th now.

UPDATE: Here’s the poster, below:


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: Tom Hardy in Locke

Every now and then a trailer for a movie I know nothing about rockets a film up my must-see list for the year. With that in mind, I’ll just leave this here:

Locke premiered at last year’s Venice International Film Festival, but it hits US theaters on April 25. It was written and directed by Steven Knight (Eastern Promises, Redemption).

Trailer Watch: Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty

Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow’s film about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden has a title — Zero Dark Thirty — as well as a teaser trailer.

There’s… really not a lot to go by, but the script (as with Hurt Locker) was by Mark Boal, the cast is pretty great (as you’d expect for the follow-up to a huge critical hit like Hurt Locker: Joel Edgerton, Jessica Chastain, Edgar Ramirez, Mark Strong, Kyle Chandler, Nash Edgerton, Jennifer Ehle, Harold Perrineau and Frank Grillo star in the December 19th release.
