For the 30 seconds of this hilarious scuzzy trailer, it's 1983 and I'm back at a grimy suburban mall cinema, Nashville's equivalent of a 42nd Street grindhouse. The film is the notorious splatter movie Pieces, The Belcourt's midnight movie this Friday and Saturday night.
It's one of a few titles we didn't get to mention in this week's print edition. Below, we've got trailers for Peter Weir's fact-based World War II escape drama The Way Back, starring Ed Harris and Colin Farrell; Nigel Cole's Made in Dagenham, with Sally Hawkins and Miranda Richardson in the story of the women who went on strike against the Ford Motor Company in England over equal pay in 1968; and more. Report back if you see anything.
At several local theaters, including the Hollywood 27, The Way Back:
At Green Hills, Made in Dagenham:
At the Hollywood 27: the Bollywood musical comedy Yamla Pagla Deewana, in which a father-son team of con men must contend with the straight arrow who shows up claiming to be a long-lost brother. Bobby and Sunny Deol star, and somehow the trailer is even better without subtitles:
At The Belcourt, Steven Soderbergh's documentary portrait of the late Spalding Gray, And Everything Is Going Fine (reviewed in this week's Scene online by Steven Hale):
Opening wide — wide enough for an encouraging R rating — is No Strings Attached, with Natalie Portman happy with nothing more than sex from FB Ashton Kutcher. The trailer for that is everywhere.
