Here’s The International Trailer for Birdman!

Speaking of possible Oscar contenders, here’s the international trailer for Birdman.  While this trailer offers up a few more clues about the film’s plot, it mostly serves to give hope to those of us who think that Emma Stone and Michael Keaton will be contenders to take home Oscars for, respectively, best supporting actress and best actor.

Watching this trailer (and taking in the fact that the film’s full title is Birdman or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), I suspect this movie is either going to be loved or hated.  It just doesn’t seem like the type of film that will inspire indifference.


Trailer: Into The Woods

Watching the first trailer for the upcoming musical film adaptation of Into The Woods, I’m struck by the fact the first half of the trailer looks intriguing and wonderful while the second half of the trailer, which features an almost stereotypically epic score and Chris Pine looking like a model-turned-prince, is far less interesting.  A lot of online Oscar watchers have been predicting that Into The Woods, Meryl Streep, and Johnny Depp are all going to be award-contenders.  Then again, a lot of those people also thought that Rob Marshall’s previous film, Nine, would be a contender as well.

Myself, I have a feeling that Meryl might get a nomination, largely because she’s Meryl and she always gets a nomination.  As for the rest of the film, it’s too early to say.  The trailer below gives reason to be both optimistic and pessimistic.

So, in other words, I have no idea.
