Labor Day weekend effectively brings the summer movie season to a close, and while it’s a good opportunity to catch up on movies you may have missed, it’s also time to think about what’s ahead. Let’s take a look at some of the latest trailers to make the rounds.
Nothing gets studios more excited than the prospect of a franchise, and this adaptation of Veronica Roth’s young adult novel is Summit Entertainment’s latest attempt at one. It takes place in a dystopian future where there’s a place for everyone and everyone has their place — except for those singular individuals that are considered divergent. While there haven’t been a lot of recent successes in this realm other than The Hunger Games, Summit has a track record here: it’s the same studio being the Twilight franchise.
We Are What We Are
Jim Mickle’s remake of the 2010 film Somos Lo Que Hay screened earlier this year at Cannes and the Sundance Film Festival. It’s the quiet, heart-warming story of a family… and some very, very disturbing behavior. It's coming later this year.
Dallas Buyers Club
Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto star in the story of Ron Woodroof, a man that was diagnosed with HIV in the 1980s. Woodroof soon found himself at the center of a drug smuggling operation, bringing in non-FDA approved medical treatments into the US. Both actors lost a considerable amount of weight for their roles — and you can see the results when the film hits theaters this November.
