A few weeks ago, we got our first look at 'The Place Beyond the Pines' with the arrival of the first trailer. Normally, trailers like those arrive after vague, mysterious teaser posters, but for whatever reason, the exact opposite has occurred here. If anything, this poster lets us know exactly how this movie is going to be marketed (the "OMG MOVIE STAR" approach).
A professional motorcycle rider turns to bank robberies to support his newborn son, but he crosses paths with a rookie police officer and their violent confrontation spirals into a tense generational feud.
David O. Russell's 'The Silver Linings Playbook' begins as one of the most arresting, empathetic and realistic portrayals of misunderstood mental health disorders since 'Ordinary People.' It concludes with a dopey dance routine more preposterous than the one in 'Little Miss Sunshine.' By the good grace of its performers (Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, primarily) it is still agreeable in a crowd-pleasing way, but anyone who engages this film as something serious is as delusional as the main character is bipolar.
'The Hangover, Part 3' director Todd Phillips has been uploading a bunch of behind-the-scenes photos from the film to his Instagram account and while most are pretty but otherwise benign, one photo raises a major question: so who dies in 'The Hangover, Part 3??'
Well, it just figures that Christian Bale would be in the latest David O. Russell film, but we're not complaining. Bale joins fellow Russell alumni Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper, as well as Jeremy Renner, in a new untitled project, formerly known as 'American Bulls---.'
'Silver Linings Playbook' may be a buzzed about Oscar contender, but more than that, it looks like a good movie. Not a "Good" Movie like 'The King's Speech' but an actual good movie. Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper star in this tale of people who feel like damaged goods coming together, and now there's a great clip from the film online.
Having won an audience prize at the Toronto International Film Festival, David O. Russell's 'Silver Linings Playbook' is now a big dog in this year's Oscar race. Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence star in this film about messed up people trying to reconnect with the world, and now there's a mushier second trailer.
After a bachelor party and a wedding, what else could there be for the Wolf Pack to mess up next? Warner Bros. has a few details on 'The Hangover Part 3,' the third and final installment in the trilogy, which has just begun production.
'Silver Linings Playbook' asks an important question: are audiences interested in watching Katniss Everdeen and that guy from 'The Hangover' try to overcome crippling sadness for two hours? The success of the film depends on the answer to that question being a "yes." The new poster for the film does its best to convince you of that "yes," mainly by reminding you of how gorgeous its lead actors are.
