Trailer: ‘The Monuments Men’ - Dec 18

So it’s ‘Oceans 11’ but in World War II with Oscaratic intentions? I’m just glad it’s not ‘The Men Who Stare at Goats.’

Trailer: ‘Gravity' - Oct. 4
Directed by Alfonso Cuaron, written by Alfonso and Jonas Cuaron, starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock.
Talk about catching you off guard. This is certainly a captivating trailer, though I’m not sure what the premise of an ensuing 90-minute+ movie would be.

Trailer: The Ides of March - Oct 7
Co-Written and Directed by George Clooney. Starring Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Evan Rachel Wood, and Marisa Tomei.
Make no mistake this is a heavy political drama headed straight for awards season. The trailer makes it seem more intense that it will likely be, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be riveting. Clooney’s direction is hit or miss, hopefully this is the former - we can already say that about the cast. For some reason I can’t help but shake the HBO-Made-For-TV-Movie feel, anyone else get that from this?

See guys? Gosling is the new Clooney.
Poster for The Ides Of March. Um, maybe my favourite poster of the year thus far.
Oh yeah, this is stellar.
Trailer: The Descendants - Dec. 16
Directed by Alexander Payne (Sideways). Starring George Clooney (George Clooney).
Looks like your typical family drama but it’s good to see Clooney in such a commanding lead role that doesn’t require heists or espionage. It’s blatant Oscar bait, if that’s the kind of thing you’re into. Good use of music though.
Two months after Darren Aronofsky announced that he wouldn’t be making The Wolverine, Vulture has learned that the Black Swan director has set his sights on a new film: a fifteen-year-old original sci-fi spec script called Human Nature by a little-known screenwriter named Jeff Welch. We hear that George Clooney is attaching himself to star as a man who is cryogenically frozen and wakes up years later to a world in which humans have become pets of another species. Insiders tell us that Warner Bros.–based producer Akiva Goldsman (I Am Legend) is currently budgeting the movie, but if things go to plan, this would likely be Aronofsky’s next project.
Kind of Planet of The Apes-y. Also kind of bonkers.
