The Weinstein Company has released the first trailer for No Escape. Owen Wilson and Lake Bell star as an American couple who become caught in the middle of a violent uprising after moving their family to Southeast Asia. It's been a while since Wilson has been in an action movie, but the whole film seems to be a retread of the story of a white family going to a foreign country and being in danger. Pierce Brosnan also co-stars. No Escape opens on September 2.
Ex Machina Trailer #2
A new trailer for Ex Machina is up. The film follows a billionaire programmer (Oscar Isaac) who invites a young employee (Domhnall Gleeson) to his remote estate to be the human component in a test to evaluate his new artificial intelligence robot, Ava. Some of the imagery in this trailer is amazing and it looks like writer/director Alex Garland has crafted a sci-fi thriller that is both thoughtful and thrilling. Ex Machina opens in theaters on April 10.
Welcome to New York Trailer
A new trailer for Welcome to New York has arrived. Gerard Depardieu stars as Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the French economist, lawyer and politician who was accused of sexually assaulting a hotel maid back in 2011. The film is directed by trashy filmmaker Abel Ferrara and this material is a perfect fit. Welcome to New York will be released in select theaters and on VOD on March 27.
