I hope you are having a relaxing Memorial Day, and if you have a few minutes to kill along the way I have added a few videos recently that I didn’t feature in any posts so I figured I would do another triple vid update like the last one.
This time around we start with an international trailer for Guillermo Arriaga’s (Babel, 21 Grams, Amores perros) The Burning Plain thanks to a heads up from Awards Daily. Arriaga scripted the three films you see next to his name, but this time he steps behind the camera for a film that shot out of the gate at last year’s Venice Film Festival only to fizzle shortly thereafter and still is without distribution as a result.
The film stars Charlize Theron, Kim Basinger and Joaquim de Almeida and weaves together two storylines taking place in the past and present. Basinger plays Gina, the mother of Theron’s character as seen in childhood. Theron will play Sylvia, who tries to find common ground with her parents after a turbulent childhood. The two narratives eventually converge.
Check out the international trailer directly below.
Next comes Bandslam, which stars Vanessa Hudgens and will be released by Summit on August 14. As expected, the film is just some musical mumbo-jumbo stereotypical hoo ha, but I am sure it will strike a cord with the younger “American Idol” fanatics out there.
Below is the first trailer.
Finally is a new featurette for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince featuring new footage, interviews and the what not of muggles, wizards and snitches. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince hits theaters on July 15. You can click here for our gallery of 72 images and much more.
