Sorry, What to Watch took a turkey day break as last week was really light on new product worth mentioning. This week? Pretty much the same but we don’t want you to miss us too badly. Here’s five recent Blu-ray, DVD, and streaming releases that may have caught your attention on new release shelves lately, ranked in the order we’d add them to our holiday wish list.
CHICAGO – Some writing sounds better on the page than it does when read aloud. That’s certainly the case with Don DeLillo’s 2003 novel, “Cosmopolis,” a spectacularly unsettling social commentary largely confined within the limo of billionaire asset manager, Eric Packer. He claims that he’s 28, but looks as if he’s been strolling the streets for centuries, while displaying all the decadent beauty of Dorian Gray.
CHICAGO – Even the most hardcore, defiant fans of “The Twilight Saga” must admit that there clearly was not enough material in Stephenie Meyer’s final book to justify two films.
CHICAGO – “The Twilight Saga” is about to sing its Bella Swan song, as the final film in the series – “Breaking Dawn - Part 2” – opens on November 16th. Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and the gangs of vampires and werewolves are wrapping it up, and two of the supporting actors – Daniel Cudmore and Charlie Bewley – will move on to other projects.
CHICAGO – In the latest HollywoodChicago.com Hookup: Film with our unique social giveaway technology, we have 10 pairs of movie passes up for grabs to the advance screening of the highly anticipated series finale “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2”!
CHICAGO – One of our best living filmmakers, one of our best working authors, and a teen heartthrob who has largely been known for looks over skill get into a slow-moving limousine in David Cronenberg’s adaptation of Don DeLillo’s “Cosmopolis” starring Robert Pattinson in almost exclusively one-on-one scenes with some great supporting actors and actresses.
HollywoodChicago.com Hookup: Free Guaranteed Tickets, Soundtracks to ‘Cosmopolis’ With Robert PattinsonSubmitted by HollywoodChicago.com on August 18, 2012 - 12:26pm
CHICAGO – In the latest HollywoodChicago.com Hookup: Film with our unique social giveaway technology, we have 5 pairs of guaranteed movie tickets plus 2 free soundtracks up for grabs for new thriller “Cosmopolis” starring Robert Pattinson from David Cronenberg!
CHICAGO – Robert Pattinson is such a divisive actor. While he’s clearly one of the most popular young stars in the world thanks to his work in the “Twilight” films, he has yet to prove to most people that he can really act. While some who have seen David Cronenberg’s upcoming “Cosmopolis” claim that this will be the film that finally allows Pattinson to break out of the franchise that has defined him, we’re stuck with something far lesser for now, the misguided and depressing “Bel Ami,” a film that does nothing to help the critical reputation of the man otherwise known as Edward Cullen.
CHICAGO – It’s here! The full 79-second trailer for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2,” starring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner, has arrived. Don’t miss it and mark your calendars for November 16, 2012.
CHICAGO – Only a movie as big as “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2” could possibly have a teaser trailer for the trailer. Yes, kiddies, the full trailer for one of the most anticipated films of 2012 comes out tomorrow but we have ten seconds of it right now for your viewing pleasure.
CHICAGO – If you were one of the millions of attendees to a screening of “The Hunger Games” this past weekend, this is probably old news to you, but an official teaser trailer has been released for the fifth and final Twilight Saga movie. The teaser trailer for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part 2” premiered before “The Hunger Games” this weekend, and is now available to be seen online.
