Trailers of the Week: (all synopses are directly from IMDB.com)

1. Wild.wild

  • Starring: Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Gaby Hoffmann and more.
  • Releasing: December 5, 2014.
  • Director: Jean-Marc Vallee
  • Synopsis: “A chronicle of one woman’s 1,100-mile solo hike undertaken as a way to recover from a recent catastrophe.”
  • Thoughts: Reese on the lonesome road of discovery. Perhaps not “theater” worthy, but this one will strike chords with some viewers. Perhaps not my cup of tea, however. -T

2. The Zero Theorem.zero theorem

  • Starring: Christoph Waltz, Melanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Matt Damon, Ben Whishaw, Tilda Swinton and more.
  • Releasing: August 19, 2014
  • Director: Terry Gilliam
  • Synopsis: “A computer hacker whose goal is to discover the reason for human existence continually finds his work interrupted thanks to the Management; namely, they send a teenager and lusty love interest to distract him.”

  • Thoughts: Visually striking and one that will make you think. Christoph Waltz is an amazing actor, but this one looks like a skip for me. Perhaps it will surprise me when I get around to seeing it. I’m reminded of the Wachowski’s films and Enter the Void and other such films but nothing makes me gravitate to it…yet. -T

3. Exodus: Gods and Kings.exodus

  • Starring:  Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver, Aaron Paul and more.
  • Releasing: December 12, 2014
  • Director: Ridley Scott
  • Synopsis: “An account of Moses’ hand in leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt.”
  • Thoughts: The biblical epic movie season is upon us and continues with Moses. Though the casting is eyebrow raising to be sure, Ridley Scott’s film looks very grandiose. I hear he is wanting to do the tale of King David after this. Not sure what to make of Exodus, I just hope I don’t want to take an exodus from the theater while watching it. -T

4. Unbroken.unbroken

  • Starring: Jack O’Connell, Domhnall Gleeson, Jai Courtney and more.
  • Releasing: December 25, 2014
  • Director: Angelina Jolie
  • Synopsis: “A chronicle of the life of Louis Zamperini, an Olympic runner who was taken prisoner by Japanese forces during World War II.”

  • Thoughts: The man this film is based on just passed away sadly on the 2nd of July. From looking at his story, the world lost an epic hero that day. Directed by Jolie and written by the Coen brothers, this film will undoubtedly be a pleasant present to audiences on Christmas day. -T

5. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 (teaser#2)hunger_games_mockingjay__part_one_ver9

  • Starring: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Donald Sutherland, Liam Hemsworth and more.
  • Releasing: November 21, 2014
  • Director: Francis Lawrence
  • Synopsis: “Katniss Everdeen reluctantly becomes the symbol of a mass rebellion against the autocratic Capitol.”
  • Thoughts: Things are heating up and this clip of the President’s message of unity being pirated by “District 13” just gets me even more excited to see the first of the 2-part finale of the series. November 2014 and 2015 can’t get here fast enough!-T

6. Gone Girl.gone_girl

  • Starring: Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry and more.
  • Releasing: October 3, 2014
  • Director: David Fincher
  • Synopsis: “With his wife’s disappearance having become the focus of an intense media circus, a man sees the spotlight turned on him when it’s suspected that he may not be innocent.”
  • Thoughts: This best-seller book made a movie looks amazing…and the whole world looks to hate Ben Affleck! ha. I like good mystery thrillers and with Fincher at the helm I know this will be phenomenal. I didn’t read the book so solving this whodunnit mystery in the theater while watching will be fun!-T

7. Jimi: All is By My Side.jimi

  • Starring: Andre Benjamin, Imogen Poots, Hayley Atwell, Ruth Negga and more.
  • Releasing: August 2014
  • Director: John Ridley
  • Synopsis: “A drama based on Jimi Hendrix’s pre-fame years.”

  • Thoughts: I have a feeling only big Jimi Hendrix fans may have an interest in this. Partly due to the look and feel of the film (not very compelling) and partly due to the lead. I wish Andre Benjamin (aka Andre 3000) the best, but I’m not certain he can carry a film. Sorry, Jimi, I’m not by your side on this one. -T

8. Behaving Badly.behaving

  • Starring: Nat Wolff, Selena Gomez, Mary-Louise Parker, Elisabeth Shue, Dylan McDermott, Jason Lee, Heather Graham, Cary Elwes, Gary Busey and more.
  • Releasing: July 2014.
  • Director:  Tim Garrick
  • Synopsis: “Teenager Rick Stevens, has a crush on Nina Pennington, they form a friendship and embark on a rock n’ roll journey together while Nina deals with her overbearing boyfriend, Kevin.”

  • Thoughts: Behaving Badly looks worse than BAD. Nope nope nope…that’s all. -T

Spotlight Video of the Week:

Featurette for: Lucylucy

  • Thoughts: People are blasting the plausibility of this film, but it’s one I am looking forward to. Blending the line between scifi and reality and directed by Luc Besson and starring Scarlett Johansson! You know I’m there!

Well, that’s it for this round of ‘Triple-T’!

My favorite trailers from today:

  • Unbroken
  • Gone Girl
  • The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt 1

Which ones are your favorites??
