Trailer Roundup: Tarantino, James Dean, Bryan Cranston, Bradley Cooper



So many trailers are always dropping, and tracking them all down can be tiresome, which is why we’ve gathered them all together in one post for your viewing ease and pleasure.

First up is Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight. A group of bounty hunters (Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Demian Bichir, Bruce Dern) try and find shelter during a blizzard, but a deadly connection uniting them all could be their undoing. Shot in 70mm, the film opens December 25, 2015.

Next up, Bryan Cranston plays legendary screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. Jay Roach’s film, aptly titled Trumbo, chronicles the blacklisting of Trumbo and his struggle to overcome what could have been career-ending devastation. The film also stars Louis C.K. Elle Fanning, John Goodman, Diane Lane, Michael Stuhlbarg and Helen Mirren. Premiering this Septmeber at TIFF, Trumbo opens in limited release on November 6.

Though it’s still technically a Hollywood biopic, Anton Corbijn’s Life is the furthest thing away from the big and brash spectacle of Trumbo. More in the vein of The End of the Tour, the film depicts the relationship between Life photographer Dennis Stock (Robert Pattinson) and James Dean (Dane DeHaan). The film played various festivals to relatively solid acclaim, thought it’s hard to determine exactly when the film will release.

The last film in today’s trailer roundup stars Bradley Cooper as a chef searching for redemption after drug addiction and erratic behavior causes him to lose everything. Cooper has received an Oscar nomination three years in a row now, and it will be interesting and exiting to see what he brings to the table here. Directed by John Wells (August: Osage County, The Company Men) and written by Steven Knight (Locke, Eastern Promises) Burnt hits theaters October 23rd.

I never knew how movies could make your imagination soar until I saw "Star Wars," I never realized how inspiring they could be until I saw "Rocky," and I never truly appreciated film until I saw "Goodfellas." Film has been a central part of my life as long as I can remember and it continues to mold who I am. My " movies to watch" list is miles longer than my "movies I have watched" list. My only regret is not having enough time to watch them all.
