Fall Fever

Now that the big films are done until November, I'd like to present ten smaller films coming out this fall whose trailers have caught my eye.

FRANK

 
Frank first debuted at Sundance and is out now in limited release. This fall the film should make its way to more theaters and I can't wait. The trailer is so uniquely crazy that it looks like it could be a lot of fun.

THE DISAPPEARANCE OF ELEANOR RIGBY

Ahhh! This is my type of movie. This trailer has already doomed me to having sky-high expectations that this could be on the (500) Days of Summer level of honestly portraying relationships. I love the whole two sides of every story concept (last effectively used in Flipped, and in a different way with He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not) and I can't wait to see it used here. Plus Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy? What a great pairing. I can't wait.

GONE GIRL

Both trailers for David Fincher's next film Gone Girl about a husband whose wife went missing and the investigation around him looks fascinating. This could be one of the finest of the year.

 LAGGIES
Laggies also premiered at Sundance and was one of the top ten I was looking forward to at the fest. It finally comes to theaters now, and the trailer looks like a perfect dramedy. Plus Sam Rockwell makes anything instantly better!


THE THEORY OF EVERYTHING

Who knew that a biopic of Stephen Hawking would be one of the films I'm most looking forward to this winter! The trailer is beautiful and I can only hope the film is too. Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, you guys better bring it!

GOD HELP THE GIRL

Hey, guess what? I already saw this one back at Sundance! Here's my original review HERE.
What can I say? I heartily enjoyed it then and I can't wait to see it again when it is released widely.

THE JUDGE

This movie could either be really great or really predictable. Maybe even a bit of both. I like the feel of the trailer though, plus the movie benefits from a pretty solid cast. Aside from Downey Jr, I really love Vera Farmiga and Robert DuVall. Here's hoping it's good.

WHIPLASH

Okay, so I already saw this movie at Sundance too. Original review HERE
I think I felt more tense at this movie than any summer blockbuster...or any movie really in quite a long time. It's something else.

BIRDMAN

This black comedy about a washed-up, movie star looks really intriguing. Plus it's got people buzzing about an Oscar nom for Michael Keaton. It's definitely got my attention.


ST VINCENT 
Okay so yes this does kind of look EXACTLY like a remake or sequel to About A Boy, this time starring Bill Murray. But is that really a bad thing?

So those are the ten I'm most looking forward to but leave it to the indies to have more come out that fly under my radar!

Wow. Here is hoping that all of these movies are as good as their previews make them out to be. There are some really fascinating movies coming out in the next few months. It makes me wish I had more time to watch movies. I might have to ask for some spoilers on some of these after they come out. :)

Ah, the time of the year that makes me think I haven't outlived the movies. These all sound so thought provoking and you know that's my favorite kind.

Here's to hoping they are not all R rated. I need to get vid angel. What does it cost?
