    Damsels in Distress

    Synopsis: DAMSELS IN DISTRESS follows a trio of beautiful girls who set out to revolutionize life at a grungy East Coast College – the dynamic leader Violet Wister (Greta Gerwig), principled Rose (Megalyn Echikunwoke) and sexy Heather (Carrie MacLemore). They welcome transfer student Lily (Analeigh Tipton) into their group which seeks to help severely depressed students with a program of good hygiene and musical dance numbers. The girls become romantically entangled with a series of men — including slick Charlie (Adam Brody), dreamboat Xavier (Hugo Becker) and the mad frat pack of Frank (Ryan Metcalf) and Thor (Billy Magnussen)—who threaten the girls’ friendship and sanity. http://youtu.be/co9MJINfLWU It is the first film by Whit Stillman in over a decade but whilst his previous films (Metropolitan, Last Days of Disco) were pretty good I'm not really feeling the forced tone of the trailer, nor the fact it shows so much.

    The FP

    Despite some good word of mouth from its showing at SXSW it is hard to see how this will work as a feature length film. It is based on a 2007 short film but I'm struggling to find it online, if anybody can let me know. NSFW Trailer:

    Of Bugs and Heroes

    Synopsis: BUGS AND HEROES is a romantic thriller combining live action with CGI animation. It’s a tale of lonely, broken people and insects who are, both in their own ways, searching for, longing for the lost loves of their lives – an introverted NIGHT GUARD, his demanding, father, a delusional SUPERHERO wannabe, and the ORPHAN child, who spend their time in an abandoned shopping mall. In order to reconstruct his shattered psyche, the amnesiac SUPERHERO sends the ORPHAN out on the streets with a camera, and tells him to film random people. He then edits that footage into narrative films, which, he hopes, will help him remember his past and reunite with his long lost wife and son. The NIGHT GUARD, who is living an unfulfilled, static life with his father, slowly befriends these characters he is meeting in the mall and falls in love with the beautiful and lonely NURSE, who also happens to be the woman the ORPHAN is filming, and which, for some reason, reminds the SUPERHERO of his wife. Meanwhile, none of the humans are aware of the parallel microcosm of insects inhabiting the walls of the mall. These beings have struggles and dreams of their own, which they try to overcome and fulfill. Suddenly, their seemingly insignificant actions begin to affect the lives of the human characters, until both their destinies become intertwined in an unusual way, through a series of events which will forever change their lives, and, ultimately, even the fate of all mankind. Hard to tell how the finished film will turn out but the trailer certainly looks promising. The stop frame animation looks particularly good, it will be interesting to see how these two worlds work in the film.
  4. Synopsis: Ewan is a secret service agent faced with the task of pursuing and eliminating a suicide bomber and his terrorist cell. http://youtu.be/a44PI7bIOyU A bit of a Bond crossed with Taken vibe but it probably won't be a patch on either. However, these days there aren't many examples of Britain doing these types of film well so hopefully this can be the exception. It's released March 9th.

    The Hurt Locker

    Bigelow is one of my favourite action directors of the 80s/early 90s and then she went off the boil with The Weight of Water and K19: The Widowmaker. It didn't even look like she could direct action anymore after the terrible Uma Thurman Pirrelli advert. But she's back with an Iraq war movie (don't run for the exit just yet) and festival reviews from Venice and Toronto seem unanimous - this is a return to form. The film is about the lives of three bomb disposal experts and their time in Iraq. The three leads are played by relatively unknown actors but there is a very experienced supporting cast around them (including Guy Pierce, David Morse and Ralph Fiennes). Interestingly the film seems to be low on the usual 'should they be there' moralising that dominates most of these movies and is quite heavy on the action (which is arguably Bigelow's strong suit). No trailer yet (although it has now been picked up for distribution so we should see one soon) but there are a couple of atmospheric shots below.
  8. According to the Hollywood Reporter both Heath Ledger (Brokeback Mountain really has done wonders for his career) and Sean Penn are in talks to star in The Tree of Life. The film has been around in many guises since the 70s (then known as Q) and it originally sounded a lot more like The Fountain in that it spanned many years (with added Minotaur) but very little is known about its current state. According to IMDB the projected budget is <ccc style="font-size: inherit; background-color: yellow; " title="$150">£94.74</ccc>m which I don't really buy as I can't see any studio giving Malick that sort of cash as he doesn't make films that will draw in an audience big enough to recoup the costs. But these are encouraging times and a 3-4 year turn-around from his last film is quite surprising. At the very least it will be a stunning looking movie.

    The Borrower Arrietty

    Studio Ghibli's next film was announced today and it is to be directed by first time director Hiromasa Yonebayashi. From GhibliWorld: <!--quoteo--><div class="quotetop">QUOTE </div><div class="quotemain"><!--quotec-->After yesterday's exclusive warming up on Twitter by GhibliWorld, today Studio Ghibli made the official announcement of their new full length feature film titled Karigurashi no Arrietty (The Borrower Arrietty). <b>The film will be an adaptation of Mary Norton's Carnegie Medal winning novel The Borrowers and, as hinted earlier on GhibliWorld, will be directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi. Unlike the original novel, which tells a story about tiny people who "borrow" things from normal humans during the 1950's in Enland, Studio Ghibli have transferred their version to Tokyo Koganei in 2010 (Koganei is where Studio Ghibli is settled) and tell the story of 14-year-old little Arrietty (Chiisana Arriety was the films original title).</b> Yonebayashi earlier worked as a key animator on previous Ghibli works like Howl's Moving Castle, Ponyo and Spirited Away and was animation director for Miyazaki Goro's Gedo Senki. Karigurashi no Arrietty will be his directing debut which is something he did not expect to happen (as told by Ghibli producer Suzuki Toshio earlier this week). Nowadays Yonebayashi is encouraged by Miyazaki Hayao every single day, who also happens to be the one handling the planning of the film. Production, as always, will be handled by Suzuki Toshio. Karigurashi no Arrietty's theme song has been co-written by the French celtic harpist/singer Cécile Corbel who also is responsible for its performance. The theme song will be digitally released in Japan starting December 19. <b>Karigurashi no Arrietty is to be released summer 2010 and will have a length of about 80 minutes</b>.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd--> <img src="http://www.ghibliworld.com/images/Karigurashi_no_Arrietty.png" border="0" class="linked-image">

    Upside Down

    The film stars Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst and is about a man who searches an alternate universe for a long-lost love from his youth. http://youtu.be/qahaiYkf-Bc The love story looks pretty standard fare but the switching top and bottom worlds looks pretty intriguing and well realised. Hopefully they'll use these alternate worlds to good effect.
  11. Not only did I have to endure Twilight: Breaking Dawn at the cinema they also showed a trailer for this hideously mawkish film. Synopsis: A nine-year-old amateur inventor, jewelry designer, astrophysicist, tambourine player, and pacifist searches New York for the lock that matches a mysterious key left by his father when he was killed in the September 11 attacks. Reading the above synopsis gives you a flavour of the potential shitness of the film but the trailer really sells it. I just feel sorry for Max von Sydow, I really hope the pay was fantastic. Anybody read the book and is the story as toe-curlingly awful as the film makes out?
