It's September and the multiplexes are a wasteland. Unless you like 'Resident Evil' movies, there's not much out there to savor right now and until Oscar season begins in earnest next month, it'll stay that way (well, at least 'Looper' is on the way, right?). How about we forget about the current state of new releases and gaze upon the trailers for two quirky festival darlings that are finally getting a chance in the spotlight?
The story of Bobby Fischer and his famous chess match with Boris Spassky is stuff of nerd legend. It's surprising no one's made a movie about it before, but now Edward Zwick is attached to direct, and Tobey Maguire as Fischer is set to produce and star in 'Pawn Sacrifice,' which will cover the match.
Baz Luhrmann has decided to make a version of 'The Great Gatsby,' and he made it in 3-D - perhaps to sweeten the deal for high schoolers who decide to watch it instead of reading the book. He assembled an all-star cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Joel Edgerton to help bring it to the big screen, and now there's a trailer.
