In the idyllic planned community of Suburbicon, everything appears to be in its right place. Apple-cheeked kids race home from school every afternoon, white picket fences outline immaculately manicured lawns, and a cheery mailman greets you in the same way at the same time every day. But there‘s trouble brewing in this homogeneous paradise. Is that a drop of blood?
A new film from Todd Haynes is always something to look forward to. The Carol and Far From Heaven filmmaker has a way of painting some of life’s most quietest moments with an evocative, emotional power. With Wonderstruck, Haynes looks at the world through a child’s eye (or in this case, two children), and the first trailer has finally arrived to give us a taste of what to expect this fall.
You may not be ready for Comic-Con, but the cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle is all dressed up and ready to head to San Diego. The highly-anticipated sequel will hold court in Hall H this week, and 20th Century Fox has officially revealed which stars will be participating in the panel via a new series of very bespoke character posters. Spoiler: Pretty much everyone you want to see will be there — yes, even Jeff Bridges.
Honestly, I’m not even sure this trailer was even necessary. Everything we needed to know about ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ was present in yesterday’s teasers, provided you were willing to go frame-by-frame through the video, take countless screenshots, and form some grand narrative in your head. I watched the trailer in realtime and even I was able to learn that there’s… Julianne Moore? And she works in a… pie shop? Or maybe a bowling alley? She was definitely wearing a bowling league shirt, I figured that much out at least. Unless that wasn’t Julianne Moore? Honestly, the video was a little fuzzy and I couldn’t…
If you blink, you won’t just miss a couple of frames of the new Kingsman: The Golden Circle trailer — you’ll miss the whole thing. In keeping with Kingsman’s subversive, irreverent attitude, the first teaser for the upcoming sequel sidesteps the usual format: You won’t find a pointless five-second clip here. Instead, 20th Century Fox has served up the entire forthcoming trailer, condensed to 10 hyper-edited seconds.
It was a few months ago we heard even David O. Russell was getting in on the TV game, flanked by none other than Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore, but the big break is finally here. Not only does the limited series have a two-season order locked up at Amazon, reports suggest it might be a mafia series.
With all the new reviews and interview coming out of Toronto this past week — it’s kind of like Comic-Con International, but for the arthouse crowd — it’s totally understandable if you missed some of the casting notices or odds-and-ends about upcoming productions. So here’s one important bit of news you might have overlooked: according to Deadline, Julianne Moore is set to headline a cast of impressive actors for the Paul Weitz adaptation of the bestseller Bel Canto.
