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.

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.
