FYI– A TON of new trailers hit the web this week. I had to split them up, so today, there are TWO (2) parts to “Trailer Time Thursday!” Enjoy Part 2 below. Don’t miss Part 1’s set of trailers HERE.
Blue Jasmine. Another Woody Allen film. This one takes us to San Francisco as opposed to his previous two which took us to Rome and Paris. Cate Blanchatt stars as a woman who somewhat reluctantly reconnects with her sister while in need after life has sent her a curveball of curveballs. Co-starring Alec Baldwin, Peter Sarsgaard and more, look for Blue Jasmine to release July 26.
Snowpiercer. Here is the first international trailer for Snowpiercer. This futuristic post-apocalyptic film is set in 2031 and the world’s last survivors exist only on a train where the control of the powerful causes several passengers to rise up and fight the power. Directed by critically acclaimed director Joon-ho Bong, this one stars Chris Evans, John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer and many more. All aboard Snowpiercer when it theaters later this year.
The To-Do List. Safety Not Guaranteed‘s Aubrey Plaza stars in this American Pie-ish tale of a highschool senior on a goal of sexual awakening through a list of accomplishments to achieve prior to her college freshman year. The peer-pressure is on in this highschool comedy that looks to be full of several expected characters and plot points. Come on. You already know how it will end. Will you sit through the same story again? Is this July 26 release on YOUR to-do list?
Pawn Shop Chronicles. I have little words for this dark comedy that I knew nothing of prior to today. Here’s the cast: Paul Walker, Brendan Fraser, Norman Reedus, Elijah Wood, Vincent D’Onofrio, Thomas Jane, Lukas Haas, Matt Dillon, Chi McBride and more! And here’s the synopsis from IMDB: “A missing wedding ring leads to a wild-goose chase involving meth addicts, skinheads and an Elvis impersonator.” This is a 2013 release.
Man of Tai Chi. Keanu Reeves stars and directs this martial arts film in which an enthusiast/investor in martial arts finds and employs a young martial artist with an opportunity unlike any other. Perhaps this is The Matrix meets Enter the Dragon? This one looks rather promising. Actor Tiger Hu Chen is an accomplished martial artist himself and starred in or completed stunts in films such as Kung Fu Hustle, Matrix Reloaded, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, House of Fury and more.
Magic Magic. Michael Cera, Juno Temple and Emily Browning star in this dark psychological thriller in which a young woman, while vacationing in remote areas of Chile isolated from her friends and family, ends up in the company of strangers with seemingly insidious intentions. Are things all they seem? Watch this dark trailer that shows Michael Cera in a different light (or shall I say, shadow). This 2013 release may be more than smoke and mirrors afterall.
Spotlight Video of the Week:
Check out this behind the scenes featurette for Ron Howard’s next film about Formula One racing champion Niki Lauda. Starring Chris Hemsworth, Rush has had a few trailers featured on TrailerTimeThursday before but this behind the scenes featurette is pretty neat. Ron Howard seem rather passionate about this project and I am looking forward to seeing Thor in a different type of role as Lauda’s challenging opponent James Hunt. The video is not one I could embed so you must click the link below to view it.

Look for Rush to start on September 20, 2013.
