With Killing Them Softly, The Master and Django Unchained, there are no distributors that come close to The Weinstein Company in terms of films we can’t wait to see this fall. We’ve now got the first poster for another one in the batch, David O. Russell‘s The Fighter follow-up, Silver Linings Playbook.
After a promising first trailer this poster from Fandango is a little more light and playful then we would have thought. Following Bradley Cooper as a man who recently left a stint at a mental institution to return back home, he’s joined by Jennifer Lawrence as one can see on the one-sheet, as well as Robert De Niro, Animal Kingdom’s Jacki Weaver and Chris Tucker (in his first non-Rush Hour role in 15 years). Check it out below and come back for our review from the fest.
Life doesn’t always go according to plan…Pat Solatano (Bradley Cooper) has lost everything — his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother (Jacki Weaver) and father (Robert DeNiro) after spending eight months is a state institution on a plea bargain. Pat is determined to rebuild his life, remain positive and reunite with his wife, despite the challenging circumstances of their separation. All Pat’s parents want is for him to get back on his feet – and to share their family’s obsession with the Philadelphia Eagles football team. When Pat meets Tiffany (Jennifer Lawrence), a mysterious girl with problems of her own, things get complicated. Tiffany offers to help Pat reconnect with his wife, but only if he’ll do something very important for her in return. As their deal plays out, an unexpected bond begins to form between them, and silver linings appear in both of their lives..
Silver Linings Playbook arrives on November 21st after premiering at TIFF.
As my review can attest to, I’m looking forward to not only watch John Wick again but also see how the film hits with general audiences when it arrives this weekend. The actioner stars Keanu Reeves as an ex-hitman who is crossed by the son of his old employer. When everything is taken from him, he decides to […]
Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. If we were provided screener copies, we’ll have our own write-up, but if that’s not the case, one can find official descriptions from the distributors. Check out […]
Composer Nathan Johnson is a master at making off-beat and imperfect instruments sound distant yet accessible on a number of vastly different narratives (see: Brick, The Brothers Bloom, Looper). His latest work is a pair of scores for films that were both released this month, Jake Paltrow‘s neo-western Young Ones and the journalistic thriller Kill the Messenger starring Jeremy Renner. Johnson has also been producing a couple albums and […]
