Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria Starring Dakota Johnson Gets Teaser Trailer

Today, Amazon Studios released the first teaser trailer for Luca Guadagnino’s highly anticipated remake of Dario Argento’s iconic horror film Suspiria. Immediately noticeable from the minute-and-a-half clip is the distance that Guadagnino is placing between his film and the baroque-pop stylings of Argento’s original in both look and sound. Suspiria is set in and around a world-renowned dance company that’s gripped by darkness and threatens to destroy a young dancer (Dakota Johnson). The film also stars Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, Lutz Ebersdorf, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Jessica Harper, who played Johnson’s role in the original.

Toronto International Film Festival 2017: Louis C.K.’s I Love You, Daddy

Louis C.K. loves a mess, and I Love You, Daddy, his first feature film as a director since 2001’s Pootie Tang, is exactly that. That’s not to say that each and every scene lacks purpose, but that chaos, mostly of the emotional sort, is C.K.’s preferred m.o. He’s certainly treading into hot-button territory throughout this often funny yet ultimately flimsy dark comedy about a flavor-of-the-month sitcom writer, Glen Topher (C.K.), whose spoiled 17-year-old daughter, China (Chloë Grace Moretz), takes up with 68-year-old Leslie Goodwin (John Malkovich), a film director who Glen worships, and also a known lech who’s equal parts Roman Polanski and Woody Allen.

Toronto International Film Festival 2014: Lynn Shelton’s Laggies

Lynn Shelton’s Laggies feels as rehashed as Dan Gilroy’s Nightcrawler, albeit to entirely pleasant results. Keira Knightley stars as Megan, who’s still dating her high school sweetheart, Anthony (Mark Webber), 10 years after graduation and watching as her friends slowly get married, have kids, and grow fed up with her vulgar humor and juvenile behavior. When Anthony tries to propose at their friend’s wedding, Megan freaks, pretends to go to a weeklong self-development seminar and instead moves in with Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz), a teenager who she befriended a few nights earlier after buying her alcohol. The premise is preposterous and your enjoyment of Laggies will directly correlate to how much you can let that slide, and also to how much you can tolerate yet another film about arrested development.

Poster Lab: Carrie

Poster Lab: <em>Carrie</em>

The new Carrie won’t be set loose until March of 2013, but MGM and Screen Gems have already boxed and shipped the film’s promotional package, just in time for trick-or-treat season. By now, most have likely seen the movie’s teaser trailer, which suggests a lot more epic destruction than what was found in Brian De Palma’s original. Also newly unveiled is the remake’s first poster, a cool little blood-soaked gem that comes with its own foreboding promise.

It’s a great new design to hang at a film buff’s Halloween party, and it ably evokes the famed image that heralded Carrie 1.0. The blessing and curse of the poster—and, by extension, the film itself—is Chloë Grace Moretz’s ever-blooming beauty. It shines its way through all that caked-on plasma, and it makes the one-sheet a bit of haunting symmetry that’s stylish beyond its ultra-iconic subject. Still, Moretz hardly has the gangly awkwardness of a 27-year-old Sissy Spacek, and she’s not exactly plausible as a meek outcast. More than anything, this image gives a major boost to the growing Moretz brand, which sells the (still just!) 15-year-old starlet as a princess who flips the bird at sugar and spice.
