One of the films I’ve been most curious about in the Toronto International Film Festival line-up is Nick Cassavetes‘ indie drama Yellow. After showing off some stills, the first trailer has arrived today, which includes tons of crazy imagery from freefallin’ women to flooded classrooms to chain-smoking clowns.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
