Generally, we only mention a movie once, maybe twice on Frachelli – and even though the seventh Star Wars film releases December 18th, we’re already writing about it for the third time. The latest Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailers gives us a glimpse at the return of Luke, Leia, Han and Chewbacca – and we couldn’t be more excited. We hope you enjoyed the trailer as much as we did, and may the force be with you.
We were waiting for a little more information to come out before sharing the Knight of Cups Trailer, but there hasn’t been much to share. With no exact release date to speak of, the 2015 film titled after a Tarot Card was written and directed by Terrence Malick and stars Christian Bale. We’re not sure what it’s really about, or what it has to do with Tarot Cards, but maybe that’s what is intriguing about it. The film will also star Antonio Banderas, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, and our previous Crush of the Week Freida Pinto.
New Star Wars trailer. Need we say more? If you’re a big Star Wars fan, odds are you’ve seen it twenty times already by the time we had a chance to post it – but here’s a closeup of that three-sided fiery lightsaber just in case you haven’t perused through the official website yet:
We came across the trailer for the comedy-crime-drama Inherent Vice and are excited to catch the film when it hits theaters (limited release on 12/12/14 and then 1/9/15). Joaquin Pheonix stars as a drug-fueled detective in 1970, and Inherent Vice has a very impressive cast including Reese Witherspoon, Benicio Del Toro, Owen Wilson, Martin Short, and Josh Brolin to name a few.
It may have been 20 years since their adventure to Aspen, but Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloyd (Jim Carrey) are back and dumber than ever in Dumb and Dumber To . From the trailer it looks like it’ll be a little more slapstick and a little less witty than the original, but at least the Mutt Cutts Shaggin’ Wagon is back. Hitting theaters November 14th.
In a galaxy not so far away, the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII cast was officially announced. Directed by J.J. Abrams, the seventh Star Wars film will feature original cast members including Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Anthony Daniels – who will be joined by Andy Serkis (LOTR), Adam Driver (Girls), John Boyega (Attack the Block), and mystery newcomer Daisy Ridley. John Williams returns as the composer and the film is set to release December 18, 2015. See the full release at starwars.com
The Red Band Trailer for Bad Words is crude, inappropriate, off-colored, and friggin’ hilarious. Usually cast as the sensible good-guy, we’re looking forward to seeing Jason Bateman (who also directs) be a grade-A asshole as he torments his way through the spelling bee circuit. Hitting theaters March 28th.
As ridiculous as 21 Jump Street was, it was still able to cleverly make light of the terribly flawed plot, which made the crime movie satire even funnier. From the trailer, it looks like 22 Jump Street has virtually the same plot – and we’re 100% OK with that. Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, and Nick Offerman make for an awesome ensemble and we are looking forward to laughing our asses off June 13th when it hits theaters.
