The first trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice has been released. Unlike PTA's last couple films (There Will Be Blood, The Master), Vice is refreshingly light and funny. Joaquin Phoenix stars as a private detective who is hired by a former lover stop the potential kidnapping of her billionaire boyfriend. Featuring Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio Del Toro and Martin Short, Vice looks like another strange and utterly delightful PTA film. Inherent Vice opens December 11.
The first trailer for Michael Mann's new film, Blackhat, has been released. Chris Hemsworth stars as an expert computer hacker who is released from prison on the condition that he help American and Chinese partners hunt a high-level cybercrime network. This certainly has Mann's signature digital look, which can turn some people off, but this looks like an adult crime thriller focusing on a subject that is very relevant in today's world. Blackhat opens January 16, 2015.
Kingsman: The Secret Service Trailer #2
A new trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service has been released. Directed by Matthew Vaughn, the film stars Colin Firth as an experienced spy who takes a troubled young man under his wing to learn what it takes to be a part of the Kingsman, a secret organization dedicated to ridding the world of evil. Vaughn is a talented director and the film looks like it balances the silliness and action well. Plus, seeing Firth kick ass and Samuel L. Jackson drop one-liners looks entertaining to me. Kingsman: The Secret Service opens February 13.
