Blackthorn. A Butch Cassidy western that entertains the theory that Butch Cassidy did NOT die in the infamous shootout in 1908, but rather retreated to a quiet life under the alias of James Blackthorne. Only now, he must come out of hiding for one final adventure, mirroring the adventures of his time with the Sundance Kid. Blackthorn comes out, guns a-blazin, soon.
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (trailer #3). A narrative trailer for this upcoming spy thriller starring the likes of Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Mark Strong, and more. November 18, 2011, the thrill of the spy begins!
The Lady. Director Luc Besson (The Professional, Fifth Element, Taken) directs Michelle Yeoh in this beautiful film which tells the story of Aung San Suu Kyi and her husband, Michael Aris, of the country of Burma, and how the two of them worked to promote the democratic movement in their country. Courtesy Collider.com, here is the synopsis for this upcoming release:
The Lady is the extraordinary story of Aung San Suu Kyi and her husband, Michael Aris. It is also the story of the peaceful quest of the woman who is at the core of Burma’s democracy movement. Despite distance, long separations, and a dangerously hostile regime, their love endures until the very end. It’s a story of devotion and human understanding set against a backdrop of political turmoil that continues today. The Lady was written over a period of three years by Rebecca Frayn. Interviews with key figures in Aung San Suu Kyi’s entourage enabled her to reconstruct for the first time the true story of Burma’s national heroine.
The trailer, while not very forthcoming with info, portrays wonderful emotion and imagery.
Warrior. Brother vs. Brother. Brawn vs. Brawn. I’ve been wanting to see this one since I first learned about it. Starring Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton, Warrior enters the box office ring on September 9.
The Way. According to IMDB, The Way tells the story of “an American father travels to France to recover the body of his estranged son who died while traveling “El camino de Santiago” from France to Santiago de Compostela (Spain).” Starring Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez (who also directed and wrote the film), this one releases on October 7, 2011.
