Burn After Reading Trailer

26 06 2008

Trailer for the Coen Brothers’ new film, Burn After Reading, starring Brad Pitt, John Malkovich, George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand, and J.K. Simmons.

I was beyond excited when they announced the cast of this film , and this trailer only further fuels that excitement. The Coens don’t don’t disappoint often, and I don’t expect to be let down by this one either. This looks wild.



This Weekend in Theatres… April 4th

30 03 2008

While we are stuck in a rut, waiting for the Summer movie season to begin… it’s worth noting that there are a few good titles being released in the coming days.

Coming on Friday, April 4th 2008:

Leatherheads – George Clooney is in this.  Who can resist George Clooney, especially when he is playing football for some reason?

Shine a Light – Scorsese and The Rolling Stones make a documentary, it looks really good. See it in IMAX.

Meet Bill (Limited Release) – Sound track sounds terrible, but Jessica Alba can ruin any good film.  I still have hope that this might be kind of good.

Also, on Wednesday, April 9th is a limited release of Young@Heart.   I was able to see this last weekend at a special screening and was part of an audience that gave a standing ovation.  I highly suggest you check this one out.

‘Burn After Reading’ Release Date Announced

5 03 2008

I am very excited for Burn After Reading. It may even be my most anticipated film of the year, and I’m glad it is solidifying well. This comes from Yahoo News:

“Moviegoers won’t to have wait long to see the next film from Joel and Ethan Coen, the Oscar-winning brothers behind “No Country For Old Men.”

Their next project, the dark espionage comedy “Burn After Reading,” will be released September 12 via Focus Features, the studio said Monday. The cast includes George Clooney, John Malkovich, Brad Pitt, Tilda Swinton, and Frances McDormand, Joel Coen’s wife.”

This cast is stacked with so much talent it is ridiculous. I can’t see any way for this film to go south. The Coen brothers are some of the best creative minds in the business (personal favorites of mine), and with their Oscars for No Country For Old Men it isn’t any surprise that they’ve attracted all this talent. They are masters of dark comedy and they’ve brought in people like Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and John Malkovich, who are equally suited for the genre. September is still a ways away, but It’s comforting to have something to look forward to.
