The Company Men
Three corporate executives (Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones and Chris Cooper) suddenly find themselves jobless and reevaluating their lives. The trailer has no dialogue but presumably the performers (which also includes Kevin Costner) will sell this one. No release information yet.
We've finally got a trailer for the new feature version of the 80s TV series. Liam Neeson plays team leader Hannibal, a role created by George Peppard. The nostalgia factor is lost on me. To this day every time I hear the A-Team theme I get a compulsive urge to change the channel. The action scene near trailer's end is an eye catcher, but nothing else here does much for me. This one hits on June 11.
Danish film about a disgraced cop assigned to a remote town where strange things happen. On the surface this seems like a repurposed plot from Hot Fuzz, but there's more going on in this dark little thriller. The film is subtitled, so don't expect a large U.S. release, but it starts a limited run on February 5. Chloe
There's no actual red band at the opening of this steamy trailer, but it's certainly earned one. Julianne Moore plays a woman who hires a beautiful young call girl named Chloe to test the resolve of the husband she believes to be cheating on her but things soon get out of hand. Watch for this one on March 19.
The Ghost Writer
Ewan McGregor plays a ghost writer working for a former British Prime Minister played by Pierce Brosnan in this political thriller. Not sure if the fact that this was directed by Roman Polanski will help or hinder it at the box office. This will be out some time in 2010.
