Two upper-class teenage girls in suburban Connecticut rekindle their unlikely friendship after years of growing apart. Together, they hatch a plan to solve both of their problems-no matter what the cost.
I’m a fan of anything that Olivia Cooke (Me, Earl and the Dying Girl) is in and a new fan of Anya Taylor-Joy who got her big break from Split. This movie is a little bit of a thriller, which is why it’s interesting to me, but it also makes me feel sad knowing Anton Yelchin has passed and that this is one of his last films.

Romantic dramas and romantic comedies are what I live for. I didn’t know what to expect when I first watched the trailer for Newness, but I did recognize the swiping of the dating apps – something we all know very well here in San Francisco and just about anywhere? The director of this film is also the same person who did “Like, Crazy” which is another one of my favorites. I’m excited to see Nicholas Hoult in another film though and am really curious to see this once this comes out.

I’m such a little sucker for films that have kids in them! I remembered seeing the trailer for “The Florida Project’ recently during another film so when Manan asked me last Saturday if I wanted to see an almost 10:30 showing of the film, I couldn’t pass it up. Except, I almost did because that was going to end way past my bedtime. What I love about films like this is that the trailer is actually not the most accurate depiction of what the film is about. I thought I was getting a film about this young girl and her friends running around and I would’ve settled for that even without an actual plot. Anyways, Brooklynn Prince who plays “Moonee” in the film is such a gem. You can’t help falling in love with her and the same goes for William Dafoe – man is he aging quite well.

I don’t recognize many people in this film, but this was something that caught my eye and a plot that kind of fascinated me. I’ve been intrigued with the “People You May Know” section for quite some time on a number of social networks – Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn. I’m not quite sure how this plot is going to play out, but it’s a film that I’d watch on Netflix for sure, just not in theaters.

The teaser that was released just last month was everything I needed to know to feel confident that this trailer would be amazing. I was just 4 years old when this infamous attack happened on Nancy Kerrigan so it was tough for me to really grasp exactly what this meant. I’m pretty sure my parents described it in terms like “two ice skaters were not nice to each other and one hurt the other’s feelings.” Adult me is ready for the very real and raw version that is this film. Also, don’t you just love Margot Robbie?!

I love to watch movie trailers and I love to get excited about what’s coming out. However, when it really comes down to it, these movie trailers and their dates get lost in my own timeline. I somehow always forget when they come out and when they are released, I don’t make time to watch the film in theaters. It’s quite the problem to have, but it’s been awhile since I’ve watched a trailer (other than “Mother” recently) that caught my attention enough to post it on Yow Yow!
In “Una,” Rooney Mara plays a woman who previously engaged in a relationship with her much older neighbor. The film flashes between present day and her as a child with actor Ben Mendelsohn. After discovering Mendelsohn in the present day, she finds that he has completely stripped himself of his old identity – he has a new name and apparently, a new wife. Currently the film is slated to be released October 13th.

Okay so when I was looking at this screen grab right here in the trailer, I thought this was going to be your standard coming of age type film. I didn’t really put two and two together that this was referring to the serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
Jeffrey Dahmer murdered 17 men and boys in the Midwest United States between 1978 and 1991 before being captured and incarcerated. He would become one of America’s most infamous serial killers. This is the story before that story.
The role of Jeffrey Dahmer is played by Austin & Ally star Ross Lynch and his performance in even the trailer has made him unrecognizable. I never would have thought that the Disney Channel star that I had previously watched could transform into a role like this, but I think that this is going to make him blow up. The trailer is haunting and eerie, but left me feeling sad afterwards. I’m looking forward to seeing what critics will say about it.

On the other hand, I’m much more excited to watch this film over Pitch Perfect 3. Person to Person was at Sundance this year and is a film that highlights the stories of more than a handful of individuals – two of which include Michael Cera (our favorite!) and Tavi Gevinson. Remember when she was just a superstar child fashion blogger?! Now she’s in a movie! I’m really interested in seeing this and hoping it does well. The film will be out July 28th on limited release.
