Another year, another George Clooney movie that looks to be an Oscar player. Starring Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman and Bill Murray, the trailer makes it look like a cross between Ocean's 11 and Saving Private Ryan. In another words, it looks like it can't miss.
I feel like I've been waiting for this movie forever. I'm not sure, based on the trailer, whether it can live up to expectations but God knows I'll be seeing it anyway.
Yes, it looks like pretty brazen Oscar bait but... who could resist?
No trailer yet, but this is the latest from director Jason Reitman and stars Kate Winslet as a single mother whose path crosses with that of an escaped convict played by Josh Brolin. I feel like it's been forever since I've seen Winslet in anything (though, really, it's just since 2011's Carnage), so I'm looking forward to her reappearance on film screens.
By all accounts this has been a labor of love for Ben Stiller, and it looks like a delightful fantasy film - not to mention a visually interesting one.
