Writer and director Noah Baumbach‘s Marriage Story is an emotionally crushing, yet very compassionate depiction of a collapsing marriage between two people and the irony of the realization that they must come together in order for them to go their separate ways. It also may be one of Baumbach’s greatest pieces of work.
Films about divorce rarely explore the heartbreak of two people who could not make it work with such honesty. But with Marriage Story, it feels raw and unnerving. The film moves like a stage play with its characters (played brilliantly by Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver) pouring out their souls for all of us to see as they go through one of the most difficult points in their lives.
Nothing says bleak comedy like watching a marriage fall apart. And that is what we will get to see in Noah Baumbach‘s Marriage Story, starring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson as a husband and wife pair that looks back on their past as they are going through a divorce. The film has already made the festival rounds at the Toronto Film Festival and Telluride Film Festival, where it was met with unanimous praise. And now it will be heading to limited theaters before making its wide debut on Netflix.
But before all of that can happen, the streaming service has released a new trailer that gets deeper into the characters’ story, what they stand to lose, how they are coping, and so much more. Check out the trailer below.
There is some newfound excitement for Jurassic World, especially after the Battle At Big Rock short made its debut last week. With the world now overrun by dinosaurs, it looks like Jurassic World 3 is going to need some big help.
Last night it was announced that Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum, three of the original cast members of the Jurassic Park franchise, will be returning to reprise their respective roles as Dr. Alan Grant, Dr. Ellie Sattler, and Dr. Ian Malcolm. More on the report below.
Whenever there is a divorce, there is always two sides to the story. Often times these view points don’t match up, which leads to a prolonged dispute between the two parties. And Noah Baumbach‘s Marriage Story will take a look at how a lovely marriage can slowly dissolve into a bitter divorce.
The upcoming Netflix film stars Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver as the husband and wife who have their own perspectives on what their marriage was and how it fell apart. Laura Dern, Alan Alda, Ray Liotta, Julie Hagerty, Merritt Wever, Azhy Robertson, Wallace Shawn, Martha Kelly and Mark O’Brien also star.
A pair of teaser trailers have been released for the film, and you can check them out below.
Steven Spielberg‘s seminal classic Jurassic Park is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and if you look at the box office, dinosaurs have never been bigger. In 2015, Jurassic World returned fans to the island of Isla Nublar and raked in $1.6 billion worldwide. Currently, its sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, sits third on the 2018 worldwide box office charts with a whopping $1.2 billion. While it pained me how much I disliked Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, no one can deny that dinosaurs are still a big money attraction. And while the sequels may suffer from the law of diminishing returns, the original holds up as royalty. Now, thanks to Fathom Events, fans of the original can see it in theaters this September.
