Trailer Spotlight: Lawless, Brave, Ruby Sparks

Brave (June 22) - Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson
Frequent readers of this space (hypothetical though they may be) will know that this is at least the third time I've posted a Brave trailer. I promise, this is the last time. Can you blame me for being excited, though? Last year brought with it Pixar's first flop (Cars 2) in the studio's illustrious history and therefore it feels like forever since my life has been enriched by the animating geniuses. Have a look at the full, expanded trailer for this one.

Ruby Sparks (July 25) - Paul Dano, Zoe Kazan
I hadn't heard much about this one before now but I must say, I'm intrigued. A combination of Stranger Than Fiction and Little Miss Sunshine seems like a too-easy comparison but that appears to be exactly what we're dealing with her. If the concept is executed correctly, this could be great. And if nothing else, it's nice to see Paul Dano being given a leading role of substance to work with.

Lawless (August 31) - Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman
Finally, feast your eyes upon the long-awaited first look for John Hillcoat's Prohibition Era epic Lawless. I will say this preview is slightly over-the-top compared to what I was expecting but it still has a chance at being a truly special film even if it does star Shia LaBeaouf. Perhaps Oldman and Hardy can bring out the best in LaBeouf. I'm definitely willing to give it a shot.


  1. Post all the "Brave" trailers you want. I'm really pumped about this one.

  2. Okay, I should have looked at the other two trailers before I posted. Those both look very intriguing.

  3. Ruby Sparks could be a toss up. Lawless I think is going to be great. Lots of promise there.
