Movie Marketing Monday


Win Win

After The Station Agent and The Visitor, I will pretty much see any film that Tom McCarthy directs.




Beginners

This one received mixed reviews at last year’s TIFF. Regardless, I still want to see this film. Hopefully it will be stronger than Mike Mills' last dramatic feature, Thumbsucker.

  1. Two trailers by 2 directors I like. Win Win looks pretty good and I'm always a sucker for a good Paul Giamatti performance. Beginners more interesting. Not just because of Mike Mills but also Ewan McGregor in what could be a really good performance. He's been lackluster in a few projects lately and I'm happy that Melanie Laurent is in something that could be fun to watch.

  2. Two very good trailers. Win Win looks very good, with a great performance from Giamatti showing off his comedic and dramatic sides of acting. Beginners looks like a good story, but the pay-off may be kind of a bummer. Still, it's always a great thing to see Plummer up on screen. Great Post!

  3. @thevoid99 – McGregor has been rather hit or miss over the last couple of years. He is not making the same daring choices that he used to. Not sure why that is?

    @CMrok93 – I hear you on the pay off factor for Beginners. It is one of those films that will either soar or sink based on the last act. Still, I like the idea of Plummer’s character realizing who he really is at such a late age.

  4. Yay! Another film from Todd McCarthy. Seriously, this guy knows how to pick 'em, cast 'em and direct 'em. This is the best news I've heard all day!

  5. @dEmon - I love that McCarthy's cast is never larger than the story. He could easily cast big name actors for his projects but he always goes for the character actors instead.

  6. I'm really excited about "Beginners". I love McGregor when he's in "smaller" movies and who can say no to Plummer!

  7. @Graygrrrl – Just when you think Plummer has done it all, he finds a way to surprise you.

  8. D'oh! This a little late to the table, but I thought I'd point out that Tom/Thomas McCarthy is the director of Win Win (The Station Agent and The Visitor), not Todd McCarthy.

  9. @deMon - Good catch. Correction has been made.
