Before we all get riled up about Paul Thomas Anderson‘s long-awaited feature, we have one more trailer for The Master. We’ve already seen some very incredible footage from the film, and now, we get to see additional footage that we’ve never seen before. The Master opens in theaters on September 14th.
Jackie Chan made the announcement that he was not retiring from action films. That’s right the aging actor who made it necessary for other actors to do their own stunts is back, and he is doing some very exciting things. Granted the trailer shows that it isn’t 100% him, i still like that he is writing, directing, and choreographing all the stunts, even though choreographing is his best quality. The film has no release date.
The To Do List
Aubrey Plaza has a sharp witty sense of humor that’s perfect for any sort of comedy. She rarely gets to appear in a lead role, but when she does, she shines. Following her lead role in Safety Not Guaranteed, Plaza stars in The To Do List, a film about an A-type personality high school senior who wants to go through various risque acts before she sets off to college. The film will be released on the appropriate date of February 14th.
The Company You Keep
Shia LaBeouf has really grown as an actor. Stepping away from those big budget blockbusters, Labeouf has turned his attention to smaller indies or more mature quality films. In the Robert Redford-directed The Company You Keep, LaBeouf plays as a journalist, who can save his job by finding a good story, he then stumbles onto a government conspiracy that threatens him and the very people he thinks he is saving.
