New Teaser Trailer For Ben Wheatley’s ‘High Rise’ Now Available

Last year, one of the big selections at the Toronto International Film Festival was acclaimed director Ben Wheatley‘s new suspense-drama High-Rise. Wheatley (Down Terrace, Sightseers) worked again with screenwriter Amy Jump (Kill List, A Field In England), who adapted the script from author J.G. Ballard‘s novel about the residents of a high-rise building, in which strange events begin to take place. Starring in the film are actors Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, Midnight in Paris), Jeremy Irons (The Lion King, Die Hard with a Vengeance), and Sienna Miller (American Sniper, Foxcatcher). Along with a Platform Prize nomination for Wheatley at Toronto, the film also received high marks at the British Independent Film Awards and the San Sebastian International Film Festival. A new teaser trailer was released just this week in preparation for the big-screen release happening this March. You can watch it here on MADE.

Also opening in theaters today is the new acclaimed drama from Oscar-winning director Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel, Birdman or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) titled The Revenant with Leonardo DiCaprio (Titanic, The Departed) and Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises, Lawless). We have a review for The Revenant available here on MADE at the link below. Enjoy the weekend!

MADE Review For Director Clint Eastwood’s Upcoming ‘American Sniper’


This week I was able to see an early screening of director Clint Eastwood‘s upcoming biographical drama American Sniper. The movie was adapted for the big screen by Jason Hall (Spread, Paranoia) from the book by Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, Scott McEwen, and James Defelice and chronicles Kyle’s four tours in the Middle East during the War on Terror. It is easy to see Eastwood’s style of filmmaking shine through, especially with the cinematography and camera-work, and the portrayals of Chris and Taya Kyle by Oscar-nominee Bradley Cooper and Golden Globe-nominee Sienna Miller is pretty impressive. What strikes you most about the plot, however, is not necessarily Kyle’s reputation as the most lethal sniper in US military history, but rather the apparent strain that Kyle’s military service has on his personality and his perception of his role in the war and his family life. Eastwood also does a fine job of really pulling you into Kyle’s environment, often building up very intense combat scenarios that you can only see from Kyle’s perspective. Ultimately it was a very entertaining watch, filled with drama, suspense, and yes, some pretty graphic images at times. I would definitely recommend seeing this one. I can’t really provide a comparison to the book seeing as I haven’t read it, but if I do while it’s still in theaters I’ll let you know what I think. You can see American Sniper in theaters this Friday, January 16th. Enjoy!

Academy Award-winning director Clint Eastwood‘s new drama, American Sniper, will be opening in theaters on January 16th. The film stars Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle) as Navy S.E.A.L. sniper Chris Kyle, who recounts his experience in Afghanistan and his 150 confirmed kills. Sienna Miller (Casanova, Stardust) also stars in the film as Kyle’s wife, Taya, and the effects of war on the couple’s family and individual life is depicted through their own separate perspectives. The script comes from Chris Kyle’s autobiography of the same name and was adapted for the screen by Jason Hall (Spread, Paranoia). Eastwood’s last film, an adaptation of the Broadway musical Jersey Girls, was attacked by critics for being a drab alternative to the more energetic and entertaining musical, but when it comes to material on warfare, his style of film making is usually right on par. I guess we’ll find out a month from now, keep an eye out for an upcoming trailer.
