On paper, Jackie always seemed like little more than Oscar bait. With the arrival of an excellent teaser trailer and now a stunning full-length trailer, Pablo Larraín’s film rests easily among this writer’s most anticipated 2016 films yet to see release. Stéphane Fontaine’s stunning and moody period cinematography alone is enough to turn heads, but the trailer also showcases some excellent writing in addition to what promises to be a very compelling turn from Natalie Portman. Word of mouth is already very positive for the film, and it’s likely to having a strong showing when Awards season officially begins in the coming weeks.
Bill Condon’s Beauty and the Beast is going to make Disney a lot of money. An obvious statement, but one more solidified after the release of the film’s first full-length trailer. Disney seems to be lying heavily on nostalgia and fandom to sell its live action adaptation of the 1991 Oscar-winning animated film, highlighting an array of familiar scenes and characters that at first glance doesn’t really bring anything altering to the table. However, with people like Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) working on the script, I doubt that we’re in for just a straightforward remake.
