The Witch and Trumbo Trailers
There's a new horror entry generating a buzz and it isn't your every day scary movie. The Witch has begun making its early rounds throughout the festival circuit, and audiences have been very impressed. This period piece is set in 1630s New England where a Puritan family struggles to grow crops and fend for themselves after their newborn son mysterious vanishes. Believing it could be the work of a supernatural witch, their lives continue to unravel within the bounds of their own fears and anxieties. This indie horror appears to use the perfect time-period to tell a cerebral story about the darkness of the human psyche. The Witch is slated for a 2016 U.S. release.
I'm sure Bryan Cranston would love any role that could separate himself from the iconic character of Breaking Bad's Walter White. He gives a valiant effort in Jay Roach's true story biopic, Trumbo. Cranston stars as 1940s Hollywood screenwriter, Dalton Trumbo, whose career comes to a screeching halt when he's blacklisted by all studios for being a communist. Director Jay Roach has made his mark in the comedy realm as the man behind Austin Powers and Meet the Parents, but this time around he's attempted a more heavy-handed drama. Trumbo arrives in theaters on November 6th.
