Una

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.

My Friend Dahmer

 

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.

Person to Person

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.

Pitch Perfect 3

I must admit, I’m not actually all that excited for this film and maybe even think the series should have stopped after the first one. The original Pitch Perfect was so good. It was new and fresh and not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It reminds me of how Mean Girls has sort of become this cult classic. Ugh, but the second was so hard for me to watch in theaters. I found myself laughing less than I had anticipated, cringing at the racist lines, and wishing that it could have ended sooner. Now that there is a third film, I sort of feel like they are pushing it a bit. Regardless, here’s the trailer.

To The Bone

Films about eating disorders will always make me a little bit uncomfortable. But at the end of the day, they are so important. It’s important for people to hear the stories, to know what it’s like, and what it feels like. I’ve been interested in these types of films lately because Lily Collins and Troian Bellisario are both staring in them and have both had eating disorders themselves so I know that the stories that they are portraying have a lot to do with their own experiences. I’m looking forward to seeing both their takes on it.

Feed

Even as I write this post, I feel a little bit weird saying that I’m interested in a film like this. It’s not something happy or a romantic comedy – something that I am used to be exciting about. Seeing a movie like this can be triggering for people like me or people in my life. I had read that Pretty Little Liars’ Troian Bellisario was starring in a film that she had written and that was based off an experience that she had encountered as she grew up struggling with an eating disorder. In an interview, she mentions how many people believe that it’s just about being skinny and losing weight. Sometimes it is, but it also touches on the ideal of control and what I have, myself, previously experienced is that it has a lot to do with being a mental thing. It’s not an easy thing to describe and sometimes when I discuss, I find myself going in circles, but someday we’ll figure it out and maybe that will be a later post.

I’m interested in seeing this movie because I don’t think it’s entirely about eating disorders. From the trailer, you can see that Troian has lost her twin brother, played by Harry Potter’s Tom Felton, and it’s this tragedy that starts to send her into this downward spiral. I’m definitely intrigued by this film and in the past have tried to watch other films and documentaries like Thin, but realized that it was a bit much for me. What does everyone think of the trailer so far? Is it what you thought it would be?

Buster’s Mal Heart

Since we have a serious crush on Rami Malek, we’ll pretty much watch anything he’s in. I’m actually very excited about this career and where he’s headed. Upon watching the trailer, it’s easy to get stuck in that thought that he’s being pigeon-holed into the same character he is in Mr. Robot, but the movie trailer still has me very curious. I’m looking forward to seeing his transformation as what we believe to be as him being a normal family man turned into fugitive.

Malek as a hard-working family man named Jonah who seems burned out by his life. During one of his shifts as a nighttime hotel concierge, he meets a conspiracy theorist named Brown (played by DJ Qualls). A series of clips showcases Jonah battling with his psyche as he evades the police by hiding out in remote areas. We eventually find him alone on a mountaintop, but the details leading up to the scene are vague. Watch the trailer above and catch Buster’s Mal Heart, written and directed by Sarah Adina Smith, in select theaters April 28.

Casting JonBenet

JonBenet Ramsey and I were the same age so when the story broke out about her death, I was really too young to process it. To this day, even though there was sort of closure, there wasn’t really. People are still making documentaries about it and sharing their theories so naturally, this is one of those cases that I also never let go. I’m still very fascinated by all of it and often wonder what JonBenet’s life would have been like today had this not happened to her and why it seems like everyone close to her involved was let off the hook. This trailer was incredibly haunting to me, but still captivating enough that I might log into my Netflix account (which I do less than a handful of times a year) to watch this when it premiers on April 28th.

All Nighter

This is a very random movie. It’s almost like “Taken” with a comedic twist. I might also be a little bit weary about the chemistry between J.K. Simmons and Emile Hirsch, but I’d be willing to give this a shot… as a film I’d watch at home. Not in theaters.

Beauty and the Beast Movie Trailer

As someone who grew up watching the classic over and over and over again as a child, it feels a little bit weird to see it as a remake! We really like Emma Watson though so we’re crossing our fingers that we’ll love this one just as much as the old.

The Accountant

Something kind of caught my eye with this trailer and it might be because it eerily reminded me of Gone Girl in some way or that it was another thriller which we seem to love. It’s not Ben Affleck though cause like meh. Here’s a synopsis below that I did not write.

The Accountant, starring Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Tambor, John Lithgow and directed by Gavin O’Connor.

Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

Southside with You

How cute is this?! Someone made a movie about the love story between Barack and Michelle Obama and it’s pretty much adorable.

The First Monday in May

!!!

Oh my goodness, watching this trailer just gave me all sorts of exciting goosebumps! The Met Ball is something that we’ve been highlighting on Yow Yow! uh since this blog was born and it is THE biggest night in fashion of the entire year. I’ve always loved seeing all of the celebrities and designers on the red carpet and I’m even more thrilled that there’s a behind the scene documentary being created for it. This reminds me a lot of The September Issue – which just happens to be one of my favorite documentaries also.

Get A Job

This…doesn’t look like it’s going to be a good movie at all, but I have this thing for Miles Teller? There’s something really endearing about him!
