It's hard to tell if George Clooney's new film 'The Monuments Men' will be an Oscar favorite even though it's being released in the midst of the prestige season. The latest trailer plays up the possibility that this could be a real contender, but one thing is for sure, it's got a great cast that includes Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett and John Goodman.
As it turns out, 'Gravity' didn't need any help in the marketing department. Expertly handled by Warner Bros., the film opened to over $55 million setting box-office records and career-bests for Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. But, now we have a look at some alternative 'Gravity' posters that give a different look at what could've been when it came to marketing 'Gravity' to the masses.
“Film as dream, film as music. No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight room of the soul.” - Ingmar Bergman.
Is it appropriate to open a review for a sci-fi film, a Sandra Bullock movie, with a quote as heavy-handed as this one? Since I did it, obviously I think so, because the only other phrase I could think of that would tersely sum up my feelings toward 'Gravity' goes something like, “Aggghghghghghhhdhhghhhh! *droool *drool *drool” and that makes me look like an idiot.
As we get more engrossed in 2014 Oscars talk, Alfonso Cuaron's ('Children of Men') 'Gravity,' starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, is looking more like a frontrunner every day. Warner Bros. has released a new batch of images for the film, taking us behind the scenes and debuting new breathtaking stills.
Now that the film has had a festival showing or two, Alfonso Cuaron's 'Gravity' is already the talk of the Oscar circuit. Considering the trailers make this look like an edge of your seat science fiction thriller, that must say something great about the movie. Here's the latest trailer, which plays up the film's incredible-looking special effects.
Let's not beat around the bush: 'The Monuments Men' looks terrific and we'll be completely and totally shocked if it's not one of the year's most talked-about films come Oscar time. Then again, we'd expect nothing less than a historical dramatic comedy directed by George Clooney starring the likes of Matt Damon, John Goodman, Bill Murray, Bob Balaban, Jean Dujardin and Cate Blanchett. The first official poster has arrived, making it pretty clear that this insanely good cast will be the major selling point going forward.
'The Monuments Men' focuses on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by FDR with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners.
