A Most Violent Year (NEW) and Chappie Trailers
All Is Lost director J.C. Chandor returns in 2014 with the highly anticipated Oscar hopeful, A Most Violent Year. The film follows an immigrant business owner (Oscar Isaac) who is forced to fight for his family and business during one of the most violent years in New York City history. Expanding on the release of its previous teaser trailer, A Most Violent Year appears to have all the makings of a viable Oscar contender.
2009's District 9 was an out of nowhere sci-fi masterpiece that really impressed me. Director Neill Blomkamp returns in March of 2015 with the science fiction dramedy Chappie. Dev Patel stars as an engineer of sorts who brings the most advanced robot ever seen into the world, Chappie. With the gift of an adapting understanding of the world and the ability to feel, Chappie looks to capture the hearts of us all. Comprised of equal parts Wall-E and Short Circuit's Johnny 5, the film looks both interesting and inspiring to say the least.
