Trailer: Maps to the Stars

By now, we all know that there's plenty of reasons for the rich and famous to be miserable. The cost of fame is high, and it can ripple through generations. That looks to be what David Cronenberg's new film Maps to the Stars...

First official trailer for David Fincher's Gone Girl photo
First official trailer for David Fincher's Gone Girl
by Jonathan Wray

The first trailer for David Fincher's highly anticipated adaptation of Gillian Flinn's 2012 novel Gone Girl has finally appeared online. Starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, Gone Girl tells the story of the search for Amy Dunne, who has gone missing on their fifth anniversary. One of the prime suspects is her own husband, Nick Dunne.

This will be the tenth film directed by David Fincher, whose credits include Panic Room, Se7en, The Game, Fight Club, The Social Network, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Trent Reznor will team up with David Fincher for the third time to score the film. He previously partnered with Fincher to score The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network.

There's a very short list of directors that I trust to turn whatever they're given into gold, and David Fincher's name is on that list. Fincher plans to deviate from the book, including giving the story a brand new ending. Did Nick Dunne kill his wife? Find out in theaters on October 3rd.

Second How to Train Your Dragon 2 trailer spoils dragons

Much like the first full trailer for How to Train Your Dragon 2, this second trailer continues to spoil a lot of the movie. But rather than spoil the entirety of the film's plot, we only get a bit of it. It's a shame because...

First official trailer for Wish I Was Here, Zach Braff's Kickstarter film
by Jonathan Wray

There's always a long wait after a Kickstarter project ends. When that Kickstarter project is for a film, the wait is painful. When it's Zach Braff's latest film, the wait is downright torturous. Thankfully, that wait is almost over, and now we have a trailer to tide us over.

Released today, Wish I Was Here is full of Zach Braff's trademarks as a director: wide, vibrant shots, slow-motion shots, and shots with the character as an afterthought. Set to the tune of "Simple Song" by The Shins and clocking in at roughly a minute and forty seconds, it almost seems like the trailer is its own story: a guy who seems jarred by some sort of tragedy has a complete disconnect with reality and goes on wild adventures with the gorgeous Penny Lane Kate Hudson.

The trailer left me feeling emotionally drained, hopeful, adventurous, and longing for a road trip. If this is even a tenth as fantastic as Garden State was, we're all in for a treat. Keep in mind that with Garden State, Braff was creatively restrained by the powers that be. Since money was raised by the community for this film, he's free to let his creativity shine.

Expect more coverage as we lead up to Wish I Was Here's debut in theaters this July.

New 'Neighbors' red band trailers are hilariously raunchy

First official trailer for Jon Favreau's Chef

Chef is an interesting film. It's definitely Favreau's passion project, but it just doesn't quite gel completely. I saw the film at SXSW and while I liked most of what I saw, the majority of the film lacked Favreau's tradema...

First full trailer for The Expendables 3 photo
First full trailer for The Expendables 3
by Mike Cosimano

The folks over at Yahoo Movies have released the first teaser for The Expendables 3, showing a couple action beats and the film's pretty sizable cast.

I didn't much care for The Expendables One, with its dark color palette and overly serious tone, but The Expendables 2: Expenda-lectric Boogaloo was a delightfully cheesy throwback. And it appears as if The Expendables 3: Revenge of the Gibson will be following the path its predecessor took to Funtown, USA.

Of course, this is all filler until Expendabelles comes out.

First trailer for The Drop, starring Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini

The Drop has the unfortunate stigma of being James Gandolfini's final film. Whether or not it's spectacular, there's always going to be a sense of dread watching the film knowing we've lost a man with such potential. Like wi...
