The Men Who Stare at Goats
If only they gave an Oscar for Best Film That Sounds LIke a Really Depraved Porn Flick. In reality this is a pretty awesome looking comedy in which George Clooney plays a soldier who is part of an elite force of psychic operatives and Ewen McGregor is the reporter out to get the story. Watch for this one on November 6.
This trailer for the latest film from Chris Nolan (The Dark Knight, Memento) will give you a serious WTF feeling, but I mean that in a good way. There's some Matrixy stuff at work here. This one hits on July 16.
The Descent: Part 2
In a move that reminds me a bit of Aliens, the survivor of the original The Descent returns and makes another trip down into the caverns where some albino creepy crawlies made mincemeat of her friends. The original was a great scare flick and I get claustrophobic just thinking about it, but is a sequel really necessary? No U.S. release info yet.
Adventures of Power
A small town geek hopes to win an air-drumming competition. The premise has potential but I question whether or not it can be sustained for ninety minutes. Lots of festival dates for this one, but no general release info.
Youth in Revolt
Can't get enough Michael Cera? Well, here's the chance to double down. In hopes of winning over the girl of his dreams, Cera's character creates an alternate bad boy personality with a downright sad peach fuzz mustache. I like Cera and this looks like another chance for him to shine. The revolution begins on October 30.
